    Maybe I will wear Egoiste again today to give it another go. It may be a fragrance where I need to wear it more to appreciate it.

    I bought a sample of Egoiste off the ebay recently, but was not impressed by it. Maybe the sample was a fake.

    Agree, great perfume. I like it sooooo much that it spoiled the other ones for me.

    Don't get me wrong as it's still good. I'd rate the 1990 version a 9.5 and the present version an 7.75

    Egoiste is indeed one of its kind, do not overlook its mother , Bois des Iles!!

    This is perfect scent on a women...I think it´s to sweet ,vanilla and floral to be a masculine fragrance. Can´t stand it.

    BDI is the grandmother actually. She gave birth to Bois Noir, Egoiste's father.

I share your enthusiasm for Egoiste Jonny and the opening really didn't do it for me, but the heart and especially the drydown is nothing short of perfection. Deserves every bit of hype it gets and now I need to get my hands on a bottle of the concentree as Neal mentioned.
    Jonny takes his time with these fragrances. I however dont have the patience he does. Jonny takes longer than some, but he's worth waiting for.

    Same here. I also find it similiar to Opium PH in style but kinda feminine. Opium is much more wearable to me.
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II

    Agreed. It`s one of the best male scents ever created.

    I know this one isn't really available in the UK and Ireland, but is it widely available in Europe?

    You can buy it at practically any Boots, Debenhams or other department store in the UK. Search online Riverwide, I'm sure you must be able to find it somewhere in Dublin.

    Thanks for reminding me of how good this one is, by the way.

    Just out of interest, is your thread title a chant? i.e. E-GO-ISTE, E-GO-ISTE etc or an outward sigh of admiration, possibly with a slow shake of the head with gently closed eyes as you hold the bottle in your palm?!

    One of my favourites, a masterpiece and quite unique, less floral than the recent versions of Bois des Iles. PE is very different and is more of a run-of-the-mill scent with the aquatic-green-fougere notes that characterizes many other recent fragrances.

    Egoiste is a classic in every sense of the word. May Chanel never discontinue or reformulate it. I know that's asking a lot, but that is my prayer.

    Absolutely amazing dry down!

    About Egoiste's reformulation and different concentrations -- I've tried the original (yellowish juice), latest reformulation (lighter/clear juice), and the cologne concentree version, and I actually prefer the latest reformulation the most as it smells more modern and lighter (but still lasts 8+ hours on my skin), compared to the other two.

    Oh it's absolutely not available anywhere in Ireland. I've even spoken to Chanel SAs about it and was told that it's available only in Selfridges in London. I've visited London a few times over the years and never seen it in any Boots or Debenhems store. Next time I'm there I'll be heading straight to Selfridges!

    That's very interesting; I could swear that I see it all the time. I got my bottle online and I'm sure it was from Debenhams; maybe it was Selfridges. Sorry for the confusion bud.

    Wish the Egoiste sample I have smelled the way it is being described here! I get rose from beginning to end - nothing more at all. No change in dry down whatsoever - rose. With the difficulty in finding Egoiste, it is far simpler just to get another rose.

    I don't want to speak on behalf of Mr. LeMale, but it's most likely a reference to the infamous (and a bit over-the-top) commercial that aired on television in the 1990's.

    Now try Egoiste Concentree.


    Joe - what is your take on the differences between Vintage Egoiste an the discontinued Concentree version?

    This stuff is legendary! Pretty much exactly what I expected it to smell like. Such a beautiful blend of Rose, Woods, Cinnamon, and Vanilla. Pure bliss. Dated? No way. Just because it cant be worn while riding a skateboard and sporting a snap-back hat and baggy jeans doesnt mean that its dated. It has to be worn with proper attire. When done so, this is not a risky fragrance at all.

    I can confidently say the Egoiste series(Platinum and Original) rivals any other Original-Flanker combinations. I just purchased Platinum Egoiste last week and it has quickly taken the spot as my warm weather signature scent. I will be purchasing a bottle of Egoiste, as it is extremely affordable at Nordstroms even though its a niche quality fragrance.

    I can definitely see why some have hailed this as the greatest fragrance ever made. However, my Holy Grail still remains comfortably in its throne.
    Absolutely! Egosite is really amazing stuff!!

    Platinum is good too, but Egoiste just dominates anything in its path.

    I agree that the current formula is best. I have a bottle from ebay that was sold as "vintage", which I like, but isn't as good as the one I tested at Nordstrom recently. The newer one was bolder and spicier and I think I need a backup. : )

    Further to my earlier post, I bought another more official looking sample from the ebay (), I must say that it smells better than the sample I bought earlier. I am impressed and as a result Egoiste is now on my "to buy" list.

    Just to confirm, Boots, Debenhams, and John Lewis in the UK don't have it - I've asked in the stores and checked their web sites. They have Platinum, but not the original.

    That was my mistake; apologies. I checked and I got my bottle from Selfridges.

    One of the few online sellers that have Egoiste is http://uk.strawberrynet.com - does anyone know how reliable they are?

    (A couple of Amazon sellers offer it too, but more expensively)

    I dislike this one.

    Me and Chanel don't click.
    I dislike all their fragrances.
