Chanel Egoiste
Being reviewed is a 2015 bottle with no comparison to older versions. I have had this for a couple of years and now finally got around to reviewing this enduring fragrance.

Chanel Egoiste - An Ode to Damask Rose and Sandalwood
My Dad uses Platinum Egoiste, ( might even be his signature scent ) and it smells really nice, keeping that in mind I decided to blind buy this fragrance. All I can say is that for a fragrance released in 1990, it really impressed me. As I sprayed this on me, I instantly realized that this... Read more

Unavoidable romantic man
There's an awkward moment when you realize what you were looking for in niche shelves and could be satisfied, is right beside you. That moment is when you try Égoïste. Without no particular reason, I had always forgotten to try this perfume while in department store. Last autumn, I randomly gave... Read more

Only in the cold, rainy and wet days you can understand and feel the true beauty of this perfume. Egoiste is warm and creamy whith a vibrant spiciness. After hours or days when impregnated on a coat comes outside his real soul and elegance. Yes, this is the tender elegance of Egoiste.

Jacques Polge's proudest achievement.
Chanel Égoïste is a fragrance that is really special, it really doesn't smell anything like 80-90% of male designer fragrances out there. I believe that if this were released today it would be considered niche, and cost perhaps up to twice as much as what it does. I would go as far as to say that... Read more

The old version was excellent.Later they produced replicas of this scent such as costume national homme and gucci 2. But this one is better than all. ed?t : for this perfume most probably there had been a reformulation and unfortunately they played with the dan of this beauty. I personally... Read more

Bitterness of victory
Beautiful on men, but also wearable for ladies – EGOÏSTE represents rather a state of mind, than a gender. The name had a strong influence on my perception, but anyway, if you buy a perfume, you buy it together with its name and bottle. The spicy-creamy overture is sweet and thruster. The... Read more

Spicy sandalwood!
Spicy sandalwood. Delicious. The cinnamom note is very well blended here. Dries down to a balanced sandalwood which is actually heavier than the Bois des Iles drydown. Suitable for mature men and for colder months, this will not disappoint anyone. I prefer Bois des Iles to Egoiste because... Read more

Looks and Muscles: Love Child of the Pretty Boy and the Gym Queen
A nice woody-fruity fragrance will be at least somewhat attractive to 75% of those who smell it. It is undemanding and hits the right buttons. It’s like a blooming flower in this respect. Who actively dislikes jasmine or rose? Egoiste uses this moderate prettiness to gear up to striking... Read more

A masculine I've stolen for myself, and myself only
Oh, how delicious! Egoiste you are divine. Why this fragrance is not sold in Australian stores is something I am still questioning. At first spray, I could have sworn I smelt raisin toast smothered in butter and jam. Egoiste opened rather gourmand-like, spicy and sweet. The raisin bread smell... Read more

Cheers to the german-french friendship
F**, this is a damn long review to translate... ;) It is difficult for me to write an objective review on this one because there there are some memories linked to it. In the 90's - I was a teenage girl of about 14 years old - we did a school exchange with a french partner school. I was... Read more

Who is the egoist here?
My wife – since half a year member of the parfumo community – tries constantly to get me hooked on scents (as she already is!). So, from time to time she buys scents for men just to put them under my nose asking what I would think about it. Usually, my standard answer is “Well, I guess it’s... Read more
