    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?

    M7 is not discontinued.

    Here it is on the YSL website:

    http://www.ysl-parfums.com/yves-sain...ex.jspz?id=456

    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.

    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.

    Default Re: yves saint laurent - m7 vs. chanel - 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.

    Default Re: yves saint laurent - m7 vs. chanel - egoiste

    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 Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....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

    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.

    It was mentioned above that Egoiste is not discontinued, but I suspect that it is :

    http://www.chanel.com/en_US/fragranc...TE-SPRAY-88419

    This is just a guess, but I suspect if a person can't buy it from Chanel directly, that means they are no longer producing it ?

    If you press the "?", you'll see it's currently out of stock and you can place a backorder.
    You really got me sweating there, haha!

    I guess I'm just used to other fragrance online shopping sites where "currently out of stock" is code-speak for the item in question being out of stock forever.

    I know that my local Chanel bricks-and-mortar outlet is no longer carrying Egoiste either.

    But I'm willing to admit that I may be wrong about all of this, and that Egoiste is indeed still being produced.

    Egoiste is less invasive and less pushy. M7 is really too hirsute - unless you like hairy of course.
