    Default What would you buy: PE or Bleu de Channel?

    i have some money to spend and my thoughts are about returning to pe as a signature scent or invest bleu de chanel. both are not very well appreciated in basenotes, so i guess i have strange tastes lol, but they make my type totally.

    for me bleu de channel seems good in the opening, its amazing, but the drydown i dont know maybe i should spray it on my clothes because it doesnt have that great longevity. both are very versatile, masculine, pleasant scents.

    seems that in fragrantica both get a lot of hype. i'm 98 % sure of which one i will buy, just want some opinions and experiences.

    btw. tested the original chanel allure homme and chanel egoiste and didnt like them. egoiste is not my syle at all, its more of a "snobbish" scent if you know what i mean.

    Oh btw i'm 37 if the age matters.

    Go with Bleu. Both are nice frags and neither get a lot of luv here, that's true. I tend to think people might like PE more if they just called it something else. Who knows, maybe not. Anyhow, the way I see it is you already did a bottle of PE, go with the new to you Bleu.

    Bleu is slightly more versatile, complimented and wearable at any age, inoffensive yet retaining individuality- likable yet also solidly stylish choice. PE is also a good fragrance by the way, but Bleu is indeed a bit more versatile.

    I cannot think of any circumstances where I would make a decision that would end in the purchase of Bleu de Chanel. PE is a good job interview scent.

    Go for Bleu. Platinum Egoiste is too invasive, well at least on my skin.

    Bleu for sure, much more versatile. I am not a fan of PE personally

    Bleu...

    I am 34 and Egoiste is a wonderful creation from the house of Chanel. It takes a few wears to get used to it, suggest you try it out a few more times...

    I think both are about the same quality in my eyes. Very good, but not groundbreaking, though both extremely versatile.

    I find Platinum Egoiste more interesting, but Bleu more wearable.

    BLEU DE CHANEL has horrible longevity for me

    Not to get off topic but, I can't handle the shaving cream effect in the top notes of bleu. I love the dry down but can't get past the opening. Boss bottled night is a great alternative but as generic as it is, nothing trumps GIT for this type of fragrance, for me. Again, I find PE and Egoiste very well constructed and both are truly great fragrances, but my preference goes to PE and most ladies tend to agree.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
