    Default OMG!, Chanel Platinum egoiste is majestic

    After going through the reviews for platinum egoiste I decided to go to the mall and test this frag, wow it was fantastic smells really clean. Something i would definitely wear, however, at this time its out of my budget. Can you guys help with any suggested frags that you could say have a similar smell, notes or feel to it. Is this a winter frag,or all season. What do you think of bogart pour homme is that a frag i could blind buy.

    IMO it's an all season fragrance.

    I've heard it said that A&F Fierce (I think) smells a lot like Platinum Egoiste.

    It is what it is. As for bottle design, you could probably do worse, besides, you're not gonna wear the bottle around your neck or anything like that right?

    If a certain fragrance is at OMG level for you, I suggest you save up and get the real-deal.

    I recently acquired platinum and as yet it has not opened up to me. I've worn it 5 or 6 times and I'm really unable to smell a whole lot. I had the same issue with Cartier declaration, had to wear it several times before I could finally smell it. Eventually I began to smell it and now I can smell it on myself the whole day. It's one of the few fragrances I have that I can do this with. Hopefully platinum will be the same after a few more wears.
    From what I can smell of platinum it seems a little similar to Mont Blanc legend. But as a previous reader noted if u like it that much dont compromise.

    sold my bottle of platinum egoiste and used the money to buy fierce and something else. They smell incredibly similar.

    Enjoyed from the first testing. Tending to confirm that it is appropriate for all seasons. At any rate, to my nose, this fragrance is rich, spicy and while being quite modern and appropriate for casual settings/outfits, also very elegant.

    You could try something like Paco rabanne XS, available very cheaply in most places. More similar to Himalaya than Platinum Egoiste but in that ball park.

    Yes I suppose so.
    It's the original XS, nothing to do with that nasty Black XS strawberry thing.

    I always found the old YSL Jazz to be a lot like Platinum Egoiste - and the price is good. I paid even less - something like $15 or $20 at Filene's Basement.

    Great fragrance. Don't except any imitations. Save up and get the one you really like. You can buy something similar, but it just won't be the one you admired.

    I think both PE and Fierce are FBW, but I do not think they are similar. Glad to have both in my collection. One can fix that Fierce bottle problem by simply peeling off the tacky sticker, as I have done with mine.
