    Default Attention all Chanel experts... question about Egoiste Cologne Concentree...

    I bought this just recently and just have a few questions.

    The "Cologne Concentree" on the box doesn't match the "Cologne Concentree" on the bottle. Was this a normal thing or was the box switched in order to sell for a higher price?

    Also the sprayer sits a lot higher then my bottle of Egoiste and Platinum Egoiste. Is this a normal thing as well??

    Again, just looking for information!! Thanks

    Your bottle is fine, it matches the authentic one I had.

    And for what it is worth, I prefer the EDT. Yeah... the EDT!
    I smell marshmallows!

    Thanks!

    I havent tried it yet. I got a bunch of samples from Luckyscent that I've had my eye on that I decided to sample first.

    The concentree is OUTSTANDING, but I also prefer the EDT. Its much more versatile in my opinion. In fact I just swapped my 75 ml splash bottle of the Concentree away because I never really had the occasion to wear such a rich indulgent frag.

    Your bottle looks fine btw OP, keep in mind the concentree came out in the early 90s so the bottle and packaging will look slightly different that current EDT's. I bet that cost you a pretty penny too!

    Thanks for all the replies

    It was a lot but I definitely got lucky and was able to get this for around $100 less then what the other bottles were going for on eBay.

    Your bottle is fine. And rare. Egoiste Concentree is a higher-grade parallel to Azzaro Pour Homme, in that the original of each is more airy and has much more nuance, and the 'Intense' version focuses on a few core aspects and just hammers them down. Not in a bad way, mind you, but the concentrated versions come off as much denser but with less variety and complexity. So, if you have a sample or bottle of original Egoiste at hand you could compare formulas to put your mind at rest. On a side note, I finally had a chance to try the re-release of Egoiste, and it went well; it smells mostly like the original at about 80% strength. Still worth buying if you can't find old stock.
