    Default Chanel egoiste or edition Blanche?

    I want to get either of these 2 fragrances. Are they alike? Which last longer? I got sample of edition Blanche but doesn't last that long on me but never sampled egoiste before. Is it sweet?

    Egoiste is somewhat sweet to me, but it also has woody and spicy elements. I would take Egoiste over Edition Blanche 8 days a week.

    I wouldn't say Egoiste and Edition Blanche are similar. Egoiste is very spicy and woody. I'm in a small minority at BN on this, but I actually find it unpleasant because of the in-your-face spiciness of it. I much prefer Edition Blanche, which does give me pretty good longevity. (And my skin usually isn't good for longevity.)
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    …goÔste is a phenomenal classical woody oriental that smells of candied fruits, spices, and sandalwood and lasts all day long. Allure Homme Edition Blanche is a wan fresh woody oriental with a comically bad apple accord on top of a thin, generic sandalwood base that is lucky to make it through lunch. There is absolutely no contest or comparison (other than the fact that they technically belong to the same fragrance family). That being said, AHED does end up being the best if a bad lot (the entire Allure Homme line). If you like …goÔste also consider trying Bois des őles, also by Chanel.

    Egoiste is much better, but Blanche is infinitely more wearable IMO. Not similar scents at all.

    Egoiste is more of an "artistic statement" type of fragrance. Edition Blanche is more of a crowd-pleaser. They're both good for what they are, but I would go with Edition Blanche if I had to choose. It's more versatile.
    Current top 10:

    1. L'Artisan Dzing!
    2. Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate

    You answered your own question. If the scent does not last on you, then move on.

    But, I would have chosen Egoiste anyway.

    Egoiste (not Platinum Egoiste ) is far superior in every aspect.

    I think Egoiste is a better fragrance and more of a statement. However, it doesn't fit my tastes so I'd personally go for Blanche.

    Egoiste.

    But they are very different.
    Egoiste is a masterpiece but some might find it smelling dated (scent memory from when Egoiste was worn by someone you know years ago?).
    The Blanche is quite wearable in everyday settings but not in the same level as a piece of art.

    Where are you getting the apple accord? I just get a creamy lemon from edition Blanche

    I love edition Blanche and does last a while when you use to bottle. However nobody really can tell you have it on with its garbage projection...which to me is only good for hot days...egoiste scent wise isn't as good as Blanche but still does smell great and I think its more usable.

    Sweet dreams are made of …goÔste. However, the White Edition smells delicious, too - more overtly delicious and trendy. I own …goÔste and indeed craved Edition Blanche today, but I will resist. At the end of the day the myth is more desirable.

    They are relatively cheap.

    Get both !

    Both are solid high quality designers.

    Egoiste 9.5/10
    Edition Blanche 9/10

    I would go and spray them on each wrist before you commit to one based on the opinion of others. The number of times I've taken peoples opinions on here and regretted it...well too many to count. Your taste is not equal to strangers, and neither is cheap so why take the risk?
    My top 10

    1. Gucci Envy
    2. Creed Aventus
    3. Dior Homme Intense
    4. Gucci Rush for Men

    6. D&G By Man

    Egoiste, is sweet and spicy at the same time. Has one of the best cinnomons imo. Allure is ok but not great. At the end, i find them different, it depends if you want citrus or spicy.
