    Default Chanel Egoiste or Serge Lutens Chergui

    I tried Chanel Egoiste last week and found the drydown quite similar to Lutens Chergui.

    There is, however, a significant difference in price between the two. Especially if considering the price/ml.

    If you could get only one of these, which one would you choose?

    I'd go with Egoiste. I don't find them that similar. I just think Egoiste is the more versatile scent.

    The opening reminded me of Geo F. Trumper's Sandalwood, but the drydown reminds me of Chergui.

    I already own Trumper's Sandalwood.

    So far the poll is 5-5 although I only got comments in favor of Egoiste... (actually, fragrancman88 said he likes Chergui better, but finds Egoiste more versatile)

    Definetely Egoiste. I really love it. I do like Chergui too, but I didn't wanted to wear it often when I owned it. Chergui is too sweet and cloying for me. In the end, I decided to sold Chergui, but never will sell Egoiste. Still: Trust your own nose and feeling.

    Both are great but Egoiste is superior IMO. There's a woman where I work who wears it though, so I am restricted to wearing it when she is on holiday. It would be like us both wearing the same dress (so to speak). Chergui is more macho, due to the tobacco. I think I am safe with that one

    Egoiste, though Chergui would also be a magnificent addition to any wardrobe.

    Thanks for your votes.

    Result: Egoiste 33 vs. 16 Chergui

    I actually thought Chergui would be the winner when I created this poll. I really like the smell of both, but I find that (at least to me) Chergui may be difficult to wear and I only buy fragrances to wear... Photos of the winner will have to wait for my order to arrive

    Anyone knows how to close the poll?
