    Default Chanel Egoiste vs Platinum Egoiste

    For those of you who have sampled both, which do you prefer? I received a decant of the Platinum Egoiste and sampled it last night. I must say it is very very good and worth picking up for this summer. I just wanna make sure that I'm not missing out on something better in the original Egoiste. Please leave your comments, thanks!

    IMO Platinum Egoiste can“t even be compared to such a great fragrance like Egoiste.
    They are so different it is impossible to compare. And, again, from my experience with fragrances, Platinum Egoiste is not worth it. AT ALL.
    On the other side I can definitely say that Egoiste is right up there in my top five favourites. Trully wonderful and amazing scent. Great quality. Definitely Egoiste is the on to go for.

    Egoiste is worth owning, Platinum no.

    They are totally different and are not comparable. I MUCH prefer Egoiste; especially, the concentree which is a masterpiece, but is not what I'd call a summer fragrance.

    The Platinum version has a mineral note in it that stinks to me. There are many people that like it, but I am unequivocally not one of them. If you like the Platinum, then definitely go for it. It is your nose that matters, not mine.

    Platinum is for the masses, Egoiste is for the specialist. I think a scent strip test, on the street, would show that. In my experience, Platinum is mostly brash and fresh. Egoiste is very suave, and I believe it's an acquired taste.

    Neither of them are in my current collection, though I have owned both several times. I do have mini's of each.

    Wow! Awesome responses and what a surprise. Not one vote for the Platinum lol. Looks like I'm definately gonna get a hold of a sample of Egoiste somehow and give that a run. Seems like I may be in for a pleasant surprise.

    Night and day difference. Platinum would make a better summer scent. I actually like it quite a lot. Get both if you can.

    Get both. Platinum for summer, original for the rest of the year.
    The original beats platinum bigtime though...

    At least try 'em both - they're both good frags. Though for me Egoiste - like almost all classic male scents - smells a bit dated. Trust your nose not other people's opinions.

    The vintage EDT with yellow juice smells a bit dated to me, but the latest formulation with clear juice is a modern classic and could pass for a fragrance that was released this year.

    No battle here - Egoiste (original) wins big time. And like NewHaarlem said, latest formulation is modern and not dated at all. One of my all time favorite. Platinum Egoiste is ok, but there are far better fresh/summer scents here.

    Unless Platinum smells better for the original poster, which in fact, would make it a better fragerance for him then the original. Worth trying both though, I find egoistes topnotes to be similiar to an olfactory nightmare. But I don't have a lot of experience with this fragerance, only tried it on once.

    I own both. I prefer the Platinum version as Egoiste is a bit dated for me.

    Now the platinum lovers are coming out. I personally like the fresh clean vibe and not sure about the dated smell. Nonetheless, I will definately test Egoiste.

    +1

    If you asked 10 people who are not into fragrances, I would say 8/10 would prefer Platinum Egoiste. If you asked 10 basenoters/enthusiasts what they prefer, 7/10 would prefer Egoiste.

    This choice is like asking which is the better fruit, apples or oranges.

    While I acknowledge that PE is more of an easy going 'acessible' smell, I think it's a very high quality one and prefer it to the original Egoiste.

    I still haven't given Egoiste a full wearing but every time I try it, I get the same thing; rubber and overly sweet dried fruits. Not really my thing.

    I only have Platinum Egoiste but I'm dying to try Egoiste! Almost scored 3 mini splash bottles of it for like less than $15 but unfortunately someone else won the auction while I was away.

    Can anyone tell me which formulation these bottles are?



    They came from this thread:
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/285...eus-Collection

    The poster mentions Cologne Concentree as well as Vintage Egoiste. Are they the same things?
    Current top 3:
    1) Gucci Pour Homme II
    2) Givenchy Play Intense
    3) Dolce & Gabbana The One

    If PE was in a blue bottle it would be ever more hated. If you like Cool Water you will like it.

    I must have used 10 or even more bottles in the past 20 years and it's still in my top 5 list of alltime fragrances. I never get bored of this fragrance: it has so much depth and yet it's so easy to wear. A true classic.
    Can't say you must blindbuy it, but you will have to sniff this once in your lifetime, that's for sure.

    Are you really asking this? Obviously Egoiste

    I think that it is easy to brush of Platinum Egoiste as another fresh scent until you give it a number of wearings. I would call Platinum my signature work scent and there are so many facets to the scent as it changes throughout the day that I still don't get bored. However, it took me a little while to warm up to the scent, but now I love it. It just gives me the feeling "I will win no matter what".

    I am ashamed that I still haven't tried Egoiste.

    I am ordering a sample right now in fact.
