    Default Recommendation for new scent - like Egoiste

    Hi all,
    Long time reader, first time poster

    I'm after a recommendation for a new fragrance. I am currently wearing Chanel Platinum Egoiste and am after something a bit different, I find a lot of men are wearing this now (it's a great one so I can see why).

    Any suggestions?

    Welcome. Perhaps Burberry London. Not like Egoiste (not sure anything is like it) but a good one to try IMO.

    How about the regular (non-platinum) Egoiste? It's different, and not very common. You need to like a little bit of sweetness, though, as it has a candied fruit note.

    What about Tsar or Gucci Nobile?

    Thankyou very much. I am 30 years old and male, would these suit? Would you be kind enough to describe the characteristics of each scent? Also do they lend themselves to a particular season or time of day?

    Both Tsar and Gucci Nobile are classic fougère with herbaceous/green notes and botloads of oakmoss. Nobile is much more restrained/discreet than Tsar and not so easy to find. Tsar is widely available anywhere. Personally I don't bother with age and seasons so I'd say they're perfectly suitable to almost anybody.

    Just to make sure we're all on the same page and not comparing things that are too different....

    Platinum Egoiste to me was a sharp, fresh fruity green (haven't tried it in a while)

    Egoiste is a sweet, rich, thick creamy sandalwood scent. Burberry London is similar but less heavy, and I think it's quite good.

    Tsar, Nobile and Fougere Royale are more of a pure green scent, with more smoke in Tsar and more frankincense in FR (watch out, very expensive!)

    I'm just saying this because you'll want to consider these things if you're specifically looking for the same scent family vs a different one.

    Try Versace L'Homme. It's not exactly a similar scent but it's of the same ilk and far less common
