    Yet another fresh, oceanic, aquatic, modern floral or whatever one may wish to call it. Very similar to Cool Water, Acqua di Gio, and other similar concoctions. Nothing special here,but Longevity and sillage are great

    This stuff is a beast. I sprayed once in the air of my room and it is still noticeable nearly 24 hours later. At least my room smells good!
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    The metallic note in PE makes it unlike any of the other fragrances you listed.

    I wish people didn't write this scent off so fast, it's pretty unique.

    Metallic note? Aquatic? Are we talking calone here? It was sounding pretty good up to that point.

    ummm I don't get anything aquatic out of platinum egoiste. I could see it as a fresher scent, being part of the 90s movement, but mostly I get a fougere structure with a minty lavender and geranium heart.

    Looks like no reply to the "which YSL" question so I'll say Jazz, at about half the price. (I know it's not quite the same family).
    Better though for me would be Paco XS which I think is very similar, but dirt cheap.

    Platinum Egoiste is from 1993. A new designer scent that just came out doesn't take away uniqueness from a classic.

    I can see why it gets love out there but IMHO there are better things out there in the same league and with a better quality of ingredients.

    Personally it has a cousin that is sexier, smarter and just so unique today, I still can't believe I have only been wearing it for 4 or 5 months. Hello Chanel Egoiste!!!

    Original Egoiste smells nothing like PE to my nose. It's crazy how different they smell, but were created around the same time.

    if it smells the same then it is not unique. maybe unique in 1993 but not now.

    Good to hear. I just wanted to check because all too often people throw around the term aquatic for anything fresh.

    Wasn't suggesting they are similar
    I said it has a "cousin", not a cloned sibling

    Well, its true...not unique. It is near an exact clone, but like 4 times cheaper. I found it at 21 pounds/100 ml in UK. For office environment is fine. Quality wise, PE > optimistic for men, but considering price as well...Paul Smith does sound as a good option.

    Quite an accurate and extensive description of a Chanel scent I truly happen to like.

    Hey all. I had a curious question on PE..

    at a shop in my town, I found these two different bottles of PE. Both are 3.4 oz, but they are a little different in text on the bottle (or at least on the box ). I don't plan to buy at this time (although I believe it s a beautiful scent), but I was just very curious about what the difference may be.
    I believe they are both eau de toilette, but on the bottom image, I can't quite tell.

    There are 3 Platinum bottles and two bottles say:

    PLATINUM (larger)
    EGOISTE (smaller)
    Pour Homme (smaller)

    CHANEL
    Paris

    2nd box on the bottom says:

    EGOISTE (larger)
    PLATINUM (larger)
    Pour Homme (smaller)

    CHANEL
    Paris
    New York

    I tried searching online and don't see an actual box. I thought maybe it was apres rasage, but that box is silver.
    Any ideas maybe??

    Thank you, Scentologist, for this thorough review
    Don't you find PE very close to Eternity for Men? I tested both recently and found them very very close.

    Hi,
    Platinium Egoiste, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver and Guerlain Vetiver are my office scents.

    I love Platinium Egoiste, pure class in a bottle...!

    I really enjoy PE. As for comparisons. I only get the Legend reference for about 30 minutes. When I tested Legend the initial spray was unique..the middle 30 minutes was very PE and then it morphed completely into a smoother/more refined Fierce. Don't really get the same with Fierce and PE side by side so I don't see it as much. I think PE is way classier than both.

    I think PE is a fabulously versatile and lovely fragrance. I can not imagine too many "civilians" having a problem with it. I love Egoiste as well, but it really is totally different and not something you can wear to the office. I think PE is a fragrance you wear for other people, while Egoiste is a scent you wear for yourself.

    I personally don't get the connection between Eternity and PE although there is that "green" aspect that might bridge a slight resemblance. Otherwise, completely different to my nose.

    I get the Fierce comparison to PE in the dry down. However, I agree that PE is way classier in every aspect!

    I agree! I wear PE dressed up and I also wear it to the gym. Its perfect all the time. I even had a guy try to get close enough to me in the gym to smell me what I was wearing lol.

    This scent is on my to buy list but I'm kind of worried about all the negative feedback on longevity issues. What do you guys think based on longevity is this a buy or pass fragrance ?

    PE longevity for me is average, typical designer.
