    Thanks! There is a bar code on the back but either way I am happy with it! I thought the very first release was called l'egoiste? Not sure how long it was before they dropped the "l'".

    I have a bottle from 1992 as well, and it's much, much better than the current formulation. If I had never tried the vintage, I would have been happy with the current formulation, but the vintage is simply deeper, more complex, and has better quality ingredients (like most vintages, I supposed).

    I agree vintage is stronger, deeper, bolder. Current Egoiste though is perfectly in line with the vintage - you can still recognise this very clearly as Egoiste under the bonnet. I agree that if you've never tried vintage, you have nothing to lose by trying or wearing current.

    I have always been on the fence regarding Egoiste. When it was first released I found it very unique, but (for me personally) unwearable...vanilla, vanilla and more vanilla. Way too much vanilla for a male fragrance. It did have a warmth/cosiness which I liked, but I have always found it a bit cloying. I am referring to the older original formula.
