    The cologne concentree is a masterpiece but harder to wear; I'd only wear it in the cold seasons and formal occasions. On the other hand, the latest EDT is still great, smells more modern, more versatile, and lighter but still lasts 8+ hours on my skin in the cold weather.

    I think they might have roughly the same kind of feel but I can't see how they are really alike regarding notes.
    I can't think of anything that really reminds me of Egoiste.

    Forgot to mention that Trumper is very generous with samples, and if you email them, they're very likely to send you samples free of charge
    Yes, they're very good. I emailed them a while ago to ask if I could buy a sample of Limes, and they replied asking for my address so they could send me a complementary sample. When the package arrived it contained two samples of the Limes and a few other assorted ones included too - one of which was the wonderful Eucris, and you can guess what I'll be popping in to buy when I'm in London next month!

    Emmm Barry Lyndon by Maria Candida Gentile perhaps... and Vanisia by creed slightly felt similar to Egoiste's basenotes.

    Very much agree! I also thought Egoiste was pretty weak last time I sample it on skin, so I'm no longer 'prepared' to buy it for a 2-3 hrs. enjoyment...not to mention that, since I own & love Antidote, this is way redundant...

    Carven Homme, with its rosewood and spices, is very similar to Egoiste to my nose. However it is quite a bit "rougher" in texture, not as smooth as the Chanel.

    Okay, another thought but very much from left field.

    I haven't worn it but was given a blast on a card at the counter just a couple of days ago: Bang Bang (Marc Jacobs).

    My first thought was 'woody oriental, warm sandalwood vibe, Egoiste-ish'. I don't know if it's any cheaper, it's certainly not better, but if you can put the silly name aside and forget the first peppery mess that was Bang then from one initial impression I would say this may be worth at least trying. I will try to give it another shot next time I'm in the place that sells all the new commercial releases.

    When I'm looking for alternatives for anything it isn't a matter of looking for the thing that smells most like it. That can be futile and not necessarily satisfying in the end anyway. I don't know about the current Egoiste (I have the older stuff), but the current Bois des Iles is like a much smaller, attenuated Egoiste, the only things left being some of the balsams, obscure woods, and a fraction of Egoiste's spices. It feels nothing like the paragon of herbal-spicy-woody (orientals): Egoiste I know (original formulation). I never liked it as much as Egoiste, but after smelling the latest formulation Bois des Iles is dead as far as I'm concerned. So is the new Cuir de Russie for that matter.

    When I'm in the mood for Egoiste I can usually wear all kinds of things, but these things often feel (not necessarily smell) the closest, whether it's because of herbs, spices, balsams, fruits, woods, musks, whatever, doesn't matter. I'm sure I left a few off:

    Jubilation XXV

    Yohji Homme
    Patou
    pour Homme
    Theorema (women’s)
    Zino Davidoff
    Tiffany for Men

    Even something unexpected like Givenchy Gentleman (vintage)
