    Default Hardest decision ever... Which to get first Allure Homme Edition Blanche or Platinum Egoiste?

    18 year old male. Love both scents. I can see myself wearing EB and it would suit me but PE just smells so freaking good after it dries down. So I'm about to get another Chanel fragrance, I have Bleu de Chanel (amazing stuff!!!) and I have EB or PE in mind. I notice that PE lasts much longer on my skin, after 7 hours from testing I could still smell it! But EB smells pleasant to me as well (drawback is that the scent started to fade away after 4 hours).

    I can always get either one next month but right now is the issue between EB and PE. I'm about to reach a party next week and I want to smell extra fly for the ladies (also without longevity being an issue). Both smell ALLURING. Don't tell me to get an atomizer because I just purchased one recently for Bleu since it doesn't stick long and I use it aprťs gym.

    Btw, is it true that EB may be soon discontinued?

    To make it easy for you, don't get any of the two. Save your money and get something better.

    Considering your age and what others your age would probably like best between those two, I'd go with the Platinum Egoiste. But go easy with it....it can be overpowering and cloying if you use too much. If you want it to last forever, spray a bit on your shirt.

    Blanche. The drydown is very nice. I receive compliments on it regularly.

    if this is the basis then I disagree with your choice. EB would be more appreciated in his age range.

    Platinum Egoiste just because it is less similiar to Bleu De Chanel than Edition Blanche.

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel

    Swipe the Platinum from Platinum …goÔste, and you are set for an olfactory orgasm

    Given the fact that Edition Blanche is apparently getting disco'ed, you might want to grab that or a bottle of Chanel …goÔste

    PE: it will last all day and just 2 sprays will do, so it will take a long time before you finish your bottle.

    Just bought Bleu and PE yesterday after sniffing the whole chanel counter!
    Well EB is actually a very nice scent but it just reminds me of lemon pledge lol.

    Platinum Egoiste as Edition Blanche is way too weak (it lasts long but noone can smell)

    Platinum Egoiste is a better smelling frag than 95% of the designer stuff out there. Huge compliment getter and a versatility king. Being a masculine Samsara, it had to be a winner though. Highly underated on BN, as most of the best frags are.

    Definitely PE for me. Edition Blanche is just way too creamy for my tastes. For lemon from Chanel, I like Allure Homme Sport Cologne much more than EB (much fresher and cleaner with less of the sickly cream/milky note).
    But from your two choices, I like PE. (super fresh, glistening, metallic smell that's awesome. I tend to like floral musks anyway, & this one is great).

    PE is winner hands down in my book. Versatility is great. I found Blanche to be a one trick pony and that one trick was overwhelming creamy lemons..in a bad way.

    Blanche is more of a casual fragrance. Love the opening, but the dry down is very blah. I like Antidote more than Platinum Egoiste which I think is very over rated.
    My current favorites:

    Bleu De Chanel, Dior Homme Sport 2012, Mauboussin M Generation, Zino Davidoff, Pal Zileri Viaggio D'Africa, and Rive Gauche.

    Platinum Egoiste it is. I changed my mind about Edition Blanche. I'll get that next time. I'm concerned about longevity so PE it is. I don't care if it is a scent for a grown man (I'm 18 but I don't really care because I love the dry down it smells lovely), I will wear it if I want to!

    Edition Blanche... Mmm Next time you're in my collection! PE it is for me! I hope I don't regret this decision for a while...

    Excellent choice. At 18 you will find PE a great clubbing frag if you're into that. Girls certainly love the smell!

    Allure is ok but smells remarkably similar to furniture polish (lemon Pledge)

    On another note I was fortunate to find another 3.4 oz bottle of Edition ______! I was a foon for parting with my first bottle of it. Stock is dwindling everywhere! I really think prices will skyrocket in the near future...think about it, Chanel has never discontinued any of their current releases, this one also had a huge following! Just look at the review section.

    With respect, one should never, ever trust the review section. As with any product from fridges, cars, electronic goods etc, viral marketing is rife. Extremely naive to think otherwise. Very easy and cheap to promote products online with shills. Not Basenotes fault, of course.

    Having said that, Allure is nice enough but certainly not one of Chanels best imo.

    It's not being discontinued it's just being pulled from stores and will only be sold on their website and Chanel boutiques.

    Edition Blanche would gettign boring after a while. Platinum Egoiste has much more character and it smells terrific.
