    Definitely try Egoiste but we warned both scents are worlds apart from one another. I suggest trying Antaeus and Pour Monsieur.

    I recommend trying Gucci Envy for men, if you enjoy Platinum Egoiste you might like this one as well. Another 90s pick.

    Egoiste is nothing like the Platinum version. It's mostly a smooth rose-touched oriental with a sweet citrus, ambrette, sandalwood, and oakmoss finish. Platinum Egoiste is more lavender and geranium gussied up with some sharp aldehydes and a barbershop finish.

    I'd wear Platinum to work, and original on evenings or dates.

    It's funny how alot of people find platinum egoiste generic and run of the mill.
    Yes , original egoiste is superior but these two scents have nada in common.
    Personally , i think platinum egoiste oozes sophistication and class.
    Regular egoiste is just too much for some people which is where platinum egoiste comes strolling in.
    Why not have both? Egoiste is perfect for winter and platinum is great for warm weather.

    I'm a big fan of Platinum Egoiste.

    I also like Egoiste. They're not like each other. Allure Homme is more similar to Egoiste than Platinum Egoiste is.

    Liking this fragrance quite a bit (having yet to find a Chanel masculine, even considering/including Bleu, didn't like yet), both as more than enough performance and for the actual scent.
    Fresh, casual but not overly sporty, zesty, light yet also persistent, with a lighter but equally impressive and creative, just more youthful and versatile interpretation of some, though not all notes in regular Egoiste, while remaining distinct and different enough from this latter to not become redundant to own both.

    Platinum Egoiste is a excellent fragrance, I wore it a lot and since wearing Chanel Egoiste have grown to prefer it over Platinum Egoiste. I also had spotty performance with Platinum Egoiste and variations with different bottles which annoyed me.

    I didn't like Platinum Egoiste when I first tried it, but I've come to love it! It really is a great fresh daily wear and I'm happy to report that my initial impressions were completely wrong, that I was wrong, and that It's a great fragrance indeed!

    I love both, the original Egoiste and Platinum, I’m going with Platinum. I love the metallic floral smell and I get great longevity from it as well

    Typical BN answer - why not have both.
    But as a typical BN myself, I quite like the answer

    No, original Egoiste is plain and simple Egoiste edt. Concentree is a lot like the original Egoiste. Platinum is not at all similar.

    Ok. I didn't realize there were three. I don't recall seeing original. All I typically see is either Platinum or Concetree.

    Concentree was dc'ed long, long ago. It's only the EDT that's around now. And Platinum of course, which is a completely different fragrance.

    The concentree fetches ridiculous prices whenever it appears on eBay, which isn't very often.

    It's actually this:

    Bois Noir (Egoiste precursor)
    Egoiste EDT
    Egoiste Cologne Concentree
    Platinum Egoiste/ Egoiste platinum - this one is completely different from the three above.

    Personally, I think Chanel have some cheek adding the word 'Egoiste' to Platinum

    For me, Platinum is hemispheres behind the original in smell and style

    Why yes, of course, I have both. I highly recommend them....for different reasons and different seasons.

    How did your experience of wearing this compare with when you tried Third Man ? Did one grab you more than the other ?

    Another thing about that cologne.Its scent is quite sweet,at least to me.It is very much like a modern fragrance they would release these days.And to me, that is a bad thing.Or maybe it does not agree with me.Anyhow to each their own.However it further shows that just because a perfume or cologne is popular or well regarded on a place like Basenotes or elsewhere does not mean it is good or that you would like it.

    I think it is better if you treat fragrances like songs. Some people like certain songs and certain genres that you might not like. It doesn't invalidate their point of view even if you dislike it. Best to find reviewers who also share what you like so you won't be disappointed.
