    Default Perry Ellis Portfolio Elite

    Hey everyone, just wondering if there are any owners of this fragrance? Seems like a good buy at $27 for 100mL based on some of the reviews and I have heard that it is a close "clone" of Platinum Egoiste (which I could never justify the cost for).

    Any thoughts or opinions on this one, before I blind buy it?

    I have it, I do enjoy the smell of it, and my Dad might of liked how it smells as well. Though, the sprayer mechanism isn't that good (at least mine). I don't have Platinum Egoiste, so I'm not sure how they might relate in smell.

    Smells like a good scent for a work environment; not real light, not heavy.

    This type, right?

    I have it and like it, but 27 is a bit steep for what it is. I paid about 15 for mine, and at that price it's a decent buy. But there are a lot of better bets out there at the 30 dollar price point.

    Not really Platinum but in that same family of fragrances. It is very tart and tangy with a low sweetness very interestingly it has white grape.

    The original Portfolio is much better imo. Fresh pears and white musk, pretty much.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Hugo (1995)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    I owned it. Decided I wasn't that thrilled with it. I gave it to my nephew - he likes it.

    Maybe that's why I don't like it much - I don't like Platinum Egoiste much (though I don't recollect thinking the two smelled much alike).
    Regards,
