    My vote goes to PE. I like Egoiste but haven't found it to be FBW at this time. Each have their followers and the ultimate decision needs to come from you. Locate a sample and give it a whirl. Both are very good.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    The search option is your friend.
    You will find everything you want to know.

    That said, the original is the better of the two.

    The original Egoiste EDT is more complex, more elegant, and much better, IMO.

    Yes the original is the more mature fragrance, but "old man" it is not.
    And there is absolutely nothing disgusting about it.

    No it doesnt smell clean. It is heavy oriental and for many people it may smell kinda old school.

    Egoiste is a compelling spicy sandalwood / rose masterpiece fully meriting its "classic" status. PE is an uninspiring aquatic fougere, not similar enough to be deemed a flanker and certainly not worthy of the name. Not even a hint of a contest (IMHO) - the original wins hands down on all levels.

    There are, I believe, NO aquatic elements to PE . I would suggest OP just smell both scents. They are drastically different and I imagine he won't have a hard time choosing one of the other after smelling... though I sometimes do.

    I personally find them as different in quality as they are in style of scent. Platinum is a generic, fresh fougere, that surely won't offend anyone, but won't instill any emotions as well. ╔go´ste on the other hand, is a masterpiece and my favorite. An amazing spicy, woody oriental, with a sandalwood/rose-combination of immense beauty.
    Platinum does have its uses(even for me, though rarely), but IMO is has nothing on ╔go´ste qualitywise (regarding the quality of the composition).

    And ╔go´ste doesn't smell dated or like an old man. I have loved and worn it for many years, and I am only 24. Girls and women of all ages love it, in my experience. My fiancÚe went gaga over it when she was 20.
    It is not dated or old smelling - it is evolved.

    Edit: But go smell for yourself Discovering new scents is great, and you might pick up new favorites on the way.

    Edit2: As for the clean and confident part, it definitely has an air of confidence, but also mystery about it. But it is not a scent for creating that clean and soapy aura around you, it is more about emotions than a physical state(being clean). Clean can be accomplished with a good shower What ╔go´ste does, is so much more

    I hate to sound like a snob, but I believe the problem with Egoiste is that it is too good for a lot of people's taste.

    Platinum I think is a decent scent.

    I agree, PE is no competition to the original...

    I've read above that PE is an aquatic and emotionless. I simply have to disagree on both accounts.

    Conceded on one count - in retrospect, "aromatic fresh fougere" is rather more accurate.

    EgoistÚ. I do like PE also, but EgoistÚ is perhaps my favorite fragrance of all time. Especially smooth sandalwood drydown is best that you can find. And besides that, EgoistÚ is anything but old-school or dated. I try to avoid term "masterpiece" as much as I can, but with EgoistÚ I think that term masterpiece is appropriate.

    PE is a good and classic fragrance too, but pale to comparison with original EgoistÚ.
    Please check out my selling list:

    YSL Opium homme EDP, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Guerlain homme intense etc.

    Egoiste is the far better fragrance. And there's absolutely nothing "disgusting" or "old man" about it.

    Egoiste isn't for everyone. In my opinion it's a more mature fragrance and there isn't anything playful about it. I usually don't think that fragrances should have age limits but Egoiste would probably fit someone over the age of 30 and confident.
    My current favorites:

    Bleu De Chanel, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Zino Davidoff, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Royal Oud, M7 (all versions), Chanel Egoiste, Dior Homme Sport, and Thierry Mugler Pure Malt.

    I have them both and I think they are both great. Egoiste is more romantic and "spectacular," while PE is easier to wear at the office. Truly, I love them both.

    I much prefer the original. It's in my top 10, and I don't find PE worth owning. It may be well made and pleasant, but I find it doesn't stand out of the crowd of fresh fougeres at all. I don't think it would be as successful as it is were it not for the Chanel name.

    I prefer the original Egoiste. It is rich, unique, manly, and the quality is remarkably good. Platinum Egoiste is a completely different fragrance, not even sure why it has the name Egoiste on the bottle.

    If you're hoping to find Egoiste to be in the vein as Platinum Egoiste, you'll be disappointed. It's a completely different scent altogether. It's rosey, stewed fruits, vanilla and sandalwood. It's an oriental with a unique vibe that doesn't feel dated, yet isn't that modern either. Definitely sample first if you're able and it's usually available at Saks or Neimans.

    Don't let people sway you that one is better than the other (which is ridiculous since fragrances are subjective), let your nose do that. I'd make sure to actually wear it since sniffing and wearing often changes perception quite a bit.

    I haven't smelled Platinum in years, but remember it as smelling a little 'off.' Based on a brief smell, the original is much better.

    I have not yet had the pleasure of sampling Egoiste, but PE is by far the most unoffensive, uninspiring, mediocre, middle of the road fragrance in my modest collection. I suppose that may be what is meant by others when they refer to it as "versatile". I wear mine to work every now and then when I think today may be the day I finally discover the treasure underlying this fragrance that has to date alluded me. I wear it for no other occasion. There are way too many significantly better alternatives. I strongly suspect Egoiste is among those.

    Personally I feel PE is suited for the younger set, it's a pleasing smell and few can go wrong wearing it. I do have the 'original' Egoiste and like it, but ca definitely see where some would think it's a scent for the older crowd and is a bit more 'unique' in offer. Really as someone above said, let YOUR nose do the work and decision for you. Not us. You'll either smell good or smell bad to yourself and that may not be the same opinion of the person walking behind you.


    Curiously, I have a question I was trying to find the answer to. A shop nearby is selling various Chanel frags and I noticed in this pic I took there are two version of Platinum Egoiste. One has the name Platinum Egoiste, and the other has the name "Egoiste Plantinum". ONe says "Chanel Paris" and the other on the box says "Chanel Paris New York" . Anybody kknow what could possibly be the diffrerence??
