    Same here - I had a sample of Antaeus and never really liked it, Egoiste was a blind buy and is one of my year-round go-to frags, along with Guerlain Heritage. Absolutely superb.

    Impossible to choose. Both are amazing. Chanel's PH, Antaeus and Egoiste are among the finest scents ever created.

    I own Egoiste but never warmed to Antaeus. Neither are indispensible.

    Égoïste is the winner for me, because it is clearly a more timeless composition. Antaeus is more unique, as an ultra-macho beeswax chypre, but it has become dated. Égoïste stands the test of time - it is still very attractive to women I talk to, and perfectly suitable for public wear in any circumstance. Polge is very happy with having created Égoïste, and it's not hard to see why.

    Egoiste. I respect Antaeus but it just never worked for me.

    If I was forced, I'd pick Egoiste but I'd be looking longingly at the other two.

    Both are dispensable.

    But I'd keep Antaeus.

    Both are indispensable .Did not vote
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    I like both but Egoiste would have to be the one that get my vote. I really like it's flanker Platinum even more.
