    Wow, that's a lot of money to throw at a blind buy, though I can't say I haven't done the same thing... I hope you do like it.

    If you like sandalwood and like really strong scents, you'll probably like Egoiste. I love it, but it took me about 15 years to finally appreciate it. If you had asked me before pulling the trigger, I would have said don't do a blind buy with Egoiste. Let us know what you think of it.

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.

    Funny! I just purchased Egoiste last night on a whim. I've been sampling it at the Chanel counter for the past two weeks, so last night I took the plunge. If you're a fan of oriental/woody fragrances, then it's difficult not to like. It's complex, slightly boozy, warm and regal smelling. After looking at your wardrobe, I'm sure you're going to love it, it's the best masculine Chanel in the commercial line IMO.

    Is there a relationship between egoiste and Tiffany for men? Are they different enough to own both?

    Simply this.

    I also don't understand why such an appealing fragrance isn't more available in the US.

    I've had a tortured relationship with Egoiste for as long as I can remember. I can recognize the quality in Egoiste; the class, the stateliness, the construction - all excellent. However there's something in the topnotes that is completely off-putting. Not sure if it's that tangerine/fruity note mixed with the aldehydes (my primary suspect), but whatever it is I can't wear it. I have a 100ml bottle that I've owned for about 6-7 years and I've gone through 1/3 of it in single sprays, sampling it on my arm, trying and waiting for the day when I finally 'get' it. I have learned that it smells better as a light application instead of a denser application as it seems to sour on me when over-applied. Who knows? Maybe it just doesn't mesh with my skin but it's not for any lack of trying....

    They are quite different to own both.
