    Default Does Chanel Egoiste and Platnum Egoiste smell similar?

    I can't find a bottle of Egoiste at my local fragrance store, so I don't know if it has been disntinued in the United States and I can't try it out. Is Platnum Egoiste just a flanker version of Egoiste? Or are both totally different?

    They smell nothing alike. Egoiste = good, Platinum Egoiste = not good

    I am sure if you hunt it down on the net you will find a bottle. Egoiste is worthy of been in a fragrance hall of legend as its that good. It's flanker though is not bad just not in the same league.

    Well I don't know if you will like it more or not - they are competely different.

    You can find it online. You can also try some small fragrances shops/kiosks in malls. You can also find it in some major cities - in some department stores and Chanel boutiques. But you don't list your residence, so do not know if you can find it where you live or not.

    Egoiste is far better than Platinum.

    Platinum is Mehhhh. Yesterday i received a vintage Egoiste and its heavenly!

    Totally different.

    Nonbasenoters would say that Platinum Egoiste = old man, Egoiste = old eccentric woman

    Platinum Egoiste - sharp, dry, masculine, metallic
    Egoiste - sweet, warm, too heavy for my taste, something in the line of Opium PH but I admit that I tried it just once.

    No. They should have named it Platinum Blah instead of sullying the name Egoiste.

    Egoiste is still a current product in the Channel Stores. Call one and they'll ship.

    I bought Egoiste blind, and really didn't know what to make of it first time I smelled it. I wasn't sure I actually liked it. But after a few wearings it really did grow on me.

    Platinum I've smelled often enough, it's okay but there were other scents in that style that I liked more, e.g Boss Elements and Chopard Heaven, so I've never bought it.

    I like Egoïste and Egoïste Platinum but they are different...

    Platinum Egoiste is a sort of Eternity meets Cool Water thing. Very bland compared to the original.

    Platinum Egoiste is like others have pointed out, a rather synthetic, dry wood scent. Quite pleasant and deceptively regal in it's opening, but blatantly synthetic in way which begins to unravel rather quickly, showing it's true colours. Egoiste on the other hand is a beautifully rich woody oriental, very sweet and unique. It's on my to buy list

    The first things that came to my mind when I smelled the original Egoiste for the first time were masculine and classy. My gf also thinks it smells unique and sexy. I believe you could buy a bottle of it from Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, or at a Chanel boutique. I'm planning to buy a 1.7 oz bottle from beautyencounter.

    You can buy Egoiste directly from Chanel online as well.

    I would also recommend Egoiste Concentree - hard to find, but well worth it.

    Egoiste Vintage in other hand is easy to find and the price is almost the same as the reformulated regular.

    Look out this sealeds:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-EGOISTE-...item483f2e96bc

    http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-EGOISTE-...item483d58bbdc


    Vintage has the concentration (eau de toilette) above the Chanel logo.

    The vintage juice is far better than the regular. Richer, stronger and denser.

    I highly recommend the vintage Egoiste.

    Just bought a vintage 1.7 oz 2/3 full bottle of Egoiste on eBay for $20. Seller states that it's from an "estate sale."

    They are very different but I do detect a similarity......you can't use one to approximate the other though. I'd compare it to Creed SMW and MI - they have a similar vibe to them (ambergis maybe?) but are quite different.

    I'm going against the grain here - I like PE far more than original Egoiste (too sweet for me). I can see why others would like it though.

    Oh, congrats. I was following that auction (5usd) for a better price, but you got it faster than me with buy it now.
    Also, 20usd is awesome for that quantity(about 1oz remaining)

    Congratulations, vintage its very very VERY VEEERY good.

    They're both good IMHO.

    Platinum Egoiste is fairly shrill and chilly in it's synthetic metallic/floral freshness, but also has a good deal of masculine woody notes like moss, patchouli etc

    Egoiste is a much darker warmer scent, comprised mostly of a great mix of three key ingredients: Rose, Sandalwood, and vanilla.

    I think they're both very different from each other. I dont own the PE, but I do like it very much as a scent. I do own Egoiste and like it very much as well, although CMPC I like better (but I know you dind't ask about that scent and you'll get the same reactions of Pour Monsieur vs. Pour Monsieur Concentree as you would with Egoiste and Egoiste Platinum. lol). I'm not entirely sure that I myself would go out of my way to find a 'vintage' bottle of Egoiste , but never say never.

    I have a feeling if PE was not named anything similar to Egoiste, it would not get the negative remarks it does on this board. I'm no fragranista, but to me Egoiste has a rosewood/sandalwood/vanilla ish vibe to it, which you may or may not like. Dont' feel bad if it's not your cup of tea! Blaze your own trail.

    Thanks! I have a decant of Egoiste from theperfumedcourt, which I don't find rich or thick at all (I suppose it's the reformulated version) -- but I love it and it lasts 8+ hours on my skin. So, I'd be amazed if the vintage juice is even better!

    So the vintage Egoiste is better than the current Egoiste? What did Chanel take out of the vintage? Cost savings? Why?
