    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.

    Own both, but Egoiste CC is much better, IMHO.

    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.

    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. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I needed a work fragrance and have sprayed Egoiste for the third time in about 2 years. I'm so underwhelmed by it. The same applies to Allure Homme. I'm at a loss as to why they're so popular. In fact throw Aventus in there. These fragrances just smell like run of the mill department store counter fragrances to me. I own more designer than niche fragrances, so this isn't a bash at high street fragrances. If Aventus was made by Adidas, it wouldn't have surprised me -- that's how disappointing it is (3 samples 5ml+ each tried from different batches).

    Egoist for me, too.

    Antaeus is also great, but I can get leather with the same vice easier than finding something like Egoist.

    Even though my skin drinks the guts out of Egoiste, I would choose it over Antaeus any day.

    That said, Antaeus had a divine beewax note once upon a time...
