    Question yves saint laurent - m7 vs. chanel - egoiste

    those are hard to get fragrances
    m7 is discontinued, egoiste i'm note sure
    i saw them at a fragrances store last week
    too many people consider this Botch scents master pieces

    if you were to choose just one of them
    which one would you choose?

    I sampled both just once so my opinion could change later but I definitely strongly prefered M7.
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Millesime Imperial


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. Dior Homme
    2. Eau Des Baux
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme

    M7 is not discontinued.

    Here it is on the YSL website:

    Here it is on StrawberryNet:

    http://au.strawberrynet.com/mens-fra.../29378/#DETAIL

    And for that matter, here is the Egoiste on StrawberryNet:

    http://au.strawberrynet.com/mens-fra.../19701/#DETAIL

    And here is Egoiste on the Chanel site:

    http://www.chanel.com/en_US/fragranc...C3%AFste-88418


    For those of us mostly reliant on the Internet for fragrance shopping, to be available through a large operation like StrawberryNet does not qualify as "hard to get". Not in my book.

    if you had to pick one some years ago : Egoiste

    nowadays: M7 by far

    The current M7 still Rocks !!, the current Egoiste is watered-down.
    my current top five (always in transition)

    Dior Eau Noire
    HdP 1725 Casanova
    eau de gloire parfum d'empire
    Dia man Amouage
    comme des garçons man 2

    Egoiste. For oud based fragrances you can have much better options out there.

    I can't personally stand Egoiste, something about its smell turns me off.

    M7 is great.

    I haven't tried Egoiste, but M7 is most excellent. Are they even similar? I guess I will look up Egoiste.

    In my opinion, I was expecting much more from Egoiste when I smelled it. To me, it smelled like an awkward verison of Cool Water, hardly any vanilla or aura of sweetness. Weird.

    I posed this question in a thread I started a couple of years ago. Then I ended up buying both. Now if asked I would tell you Egoiste by a country mile. I've kinda gotten over M7 and rarely wear it anymore (not that I no longer like it, just over it). Egoiste is my favorite and I never get tired of it. It's one of the few I have actually made a second purchase on over the years.

    This is really close to call, but because M7 suites me most, I'll go with that. Egoiste is still a great scent, however ( one that I did not like a year ago).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Both are worth owning IMO. Between those two, Egoiste gets used more than M7 for me.
    Current infatuations:

    1. M7
    2. Encre Noire
    3. Tobacco Vanille
    4. A*Men
    5. Chergui

    I love 'em both, but I got bored of M7 before I finished my sample.
    Been using Egoiste for over 20 years now. Must have emptied 10+ bottles by now.
    So Egoiste is definitely my winner here.

    I never had a chance to try the original M7 formulation, I did however purchase a bottle of the new M7. The bottle was accidentally smashed and I didn't replace it if that tells you anything. With that being said, Egoiste is in my top 10 and is the superior fragrance in my opinion.

    Are you sure you're not talking about Platinum Egoiste?
    I love both of these almost equally, but if I had to chose just one it would without a doubt be Egoiste.
