    Default Egoiste or Egoiste Cologne Concentree - Which one has better projection?

    I got a sample of egoiste, and it is absolutely incredible. I immediately decided that this will be my next fragrance, but from everything I hear the cologne concentree is supposed to be even better. I am just wondering which one has better projection.

    Anyone have any experience that they could share with me?

    I have both and for me they both project very well, but the Concentree goes one step beyond.

    Good luck in your quest to find the Cologne Concentree, ive been on the same quest for a year. The only person that seems to be lucky with it is Le Grand Duc who seems to get a new bottle every 2 months!

    LOL

    Yeah I haven't found the cologne concentree anywhere, but I have fallen in love with the EdC... I finally understand why everyone praises it as one of the greats.

    I bought a bottle when I first started here and didn't understand the fuss surrounding Egoiste. Revisiting the scent 2 years later really opened up my eyes on how amazing it really is.

    The Concentree is the one you should buy, that is if you can find it. If not, get the original.

    I have been able to find the cologne concentree only on ebay. It comes up from time to time. But quite honestly, the concentree may be over powering for you. Stick to the Egoiste that is presently being sold.

    I picked up a 50 ml of the concentree last week.... it's worth every penny i paid... which is $100 i paid... i also own the edt version too, which is great, but the concentree is much much better....

    Here's the projection rankings...
    Concentree>Vintage Egoiste EDT (by only a hair)> present day Egoiste EDT.
    A 2.5 oz Vintage is on eBay as we speak.

    Saw the 8.4 oz Vintage last night, but I just don't trust vintage splash bottles.

    I'd love to try the Egoiste Concentre; I adore the current Egoiste.e

    Damn. I'm so torn up right now..

    I could get the 3.4 edt for 80... Or wait in hopes a vintage bottle or cologne concentree bottle pops up my sample is running low because I can't stop using it, and I have no extra money to spend on fragrances this month! Ahhhh!

    eggy if I were you I would just get the one you can afford right now and then get the Concentree later on.

    The original, mentioned several times above, projects very nicely (probably more so than most modern masculine scents) and who knows...maybe when you test the Concentree you won't actually enjoy it (regardless of whether it projects well or not).

    When I was in Las Vegas I saw a bottle of the original for sale at Neiman Marcus which sort of floored me, since I was under the assumption you couldn't buy it in any U.S. stores. Another Basenoter and I split a bottle and I will be getting my bottle split any day now. I'm psyched! It's such a wonderful fragrance.
