LUKE, I'M YOUR FATHER! *schaufff... huff*
ATTENTION! MANY SPOILERS!
Fun Fact 1:
Dart Vader never said that line (googles "Darth Vader Mandela effect")
Nevertheless, he is his father
And Chanel's "platinum egoist" (that's how they say it in fyi..) is A&F Fierce's father
But it doesn't have to be a bad thing... ...for Fierce, anyway. With Luke and Annakin... well ':D At his children's birthday parties, this father would have been a scream! D And hey, who can say, "My daddy is the ruler of the empire"... ;)
Well, back to the topic of this post:
Fierce is, in my opinion, a perfectly made, fresh, woody, fruity and sweet daily driver fragrance. I have the feeling he doesn't have the best reputation, which is true for many designer fragrances that "everyone likes".
It was already like that in the school class... who is liked by all teachers, is quickly teased by the comrades... (Btw. I hate people... so I was not liked, but still I was teased...)
But I don't care about clichés and prejudices. And I like to wear Fierce every now and then, and it really goes down well with everyone exorbitantly.
For a long time I thought it was the first fragrance to take this direction.
Now that I've gone Platinum Egoist, I'm of the opinion that this was the unofficial prototype for Fierce...
But Fierce is: fresher, woodier, more lively, modern, timeless (because he smells neither old nor new, Platinum you can smell his generation a bit...), and yes... simply better from my point of view.
I'm actually talking about the newly available Fierce, not some vintage batch...
But what I find cool about PE is that it's a bit of a "matte template" for Fierce, but still doesn't look like a cheap clone (a'la "wants but can't").
Platinum egoist just says "Hey, I'm just a bit of an oldie, treat me with respect" :D
So for my feeling it is a slightly flatter Fierce, with such a light aftershave-like note, which gives the whole thing a certain "gilette feeling". (Think of Burberry, Viking, Herrera for Men...)
Vl. sounds negative for some people, but give him a chance. As much as I like Fierce, as much as others like it... sometimes it's too much "statement", too clearly pretty ... if that makes sense
So if you want the DNA with a little understatement, a tick more "Daddy" instead of "Junior goes on his second date", then PE is a good choice.
Considering this, I also think the performance is well chosen, the scent is a little weaker than Fierce, but this allows a more precise dosage, and it fits better to the image / feeling than if he was a silage monster.
For a fragrance from 1993, I find the whole thing groundbreaking, in the truest sense of the word ;P
Typical Chanel, top quality, very distinguished.
More unique and special I find nevertheless the normal "Egoiste", which is a completely own animal! :)
