I am one of those women who use this Fragrance, although it's a men's one. ;)
And to sum it up, I really love it and it became my signature scent years ago!
It smells fresh but spicey and not heavy at all. I get compliments very often when I use it. As strange as it sounds, but a few times other women approached me, because they liked the smell so much they had to ask what scent I used!! Never happened with any other scents for me. ;) And everyone is surprised when I tell them that it's a Men's Fragrance. It works very well for me and it's not obviously masculine on a woman.
I LOVE this cologne. I purchased it for my bf after smelling it on one of my guy friends.
My bf is sort of a rough-around-the-edges kind of guy, so I wanted something very masculine but a little sophisticated as well. Platinum smells clean and sexy and I agree with the other ladies who said it makes them want to rip their man's clothes off. Highly recommended.
Doesn't really stand out from the average men's aquatic scent except that it smells expensive somehow. Hints of leather, lavender, bergamot and vetiver. It's very clean and masculine and quietly so. Aquatic usually places a cologne squarely in the 'average' category for me, but this one smells like the dressed-up version of aquatic. Possibly it is the black tie version. Very nice, nothing to object to.
I love this fragrance so much!!!...its my favorite for my bf to wear, its just great, i just wanna tear his clothes off!!haha but seriously its so great!
sex in a bottle.
i can't even describe it...imagine...okay. imagine the hottest man ever. times that by ten. now bottle him up in a classy little rectangular prism bottle with a sleek silver top.
i know. ;]
Platinum Egoiste has: Lavender, Rosemary, Petitgrain,Clary Sage, Geranium, Galbanum,Vetiver, Cedarwood, Labdanum, and Treemoss. In the beginning, Petitgrain shows up on my skin and calls to mind Dolce and Gabbana. Platinum Egoiste has a freshness that I find addictive, and a couple notes that smell intriguing because they are sort of odd to me, probably the geranium and vetiver mix. It brings to mind the flavor of my favorite drink: Vodka Tonic, with two limes. There's something fresh and citrusy about it on me, but it doesn't turn foul on me the way citrus actually does. This cologne is relaxed, elegant, casual or dressy. It's for the man that is comfortable with himself and has confidence and understated attitude.
Sexy, Refined and . . .sexy. I am very sensitive to scents, so I was very relieved to find this incredible fragrance for my husband. It works from tux to jeans with ease. He has been wearing this for years! FRAGRANCE NOTES - Lavender, Rosemary, Petitgrain, Clary Sage, Bourbon Geranium, Cedar. - That lavendar-rosemary combo is so enticing. I agree ..."only women who buy this for their hubbies are the lucky ones. " I also like D&G for Men and Burberry Brit for Men. He started using Intimately Beckham Men in the summer. (the change is for me more than him). But Platinum is the one and only one. continued >>
Well, I wanted to give my husband some cologne & I made my purchase somewhat based off this board! It didnt fail me. The cologne is awesome ...I love it...therefore he loves it. It drives me "crazy"...in a good way. Actually, he does really like it & is complemented frequently. It also has the best staying power ever.
I was getting into my boyfriends car when I smelled this spicy must. I opened up the car door and immediately vomited. Imagine my surprise when he pulled out a bottle of Chanel Egoiste. It was the most nasty rancid spicy gross smell I could ever imagine. Bleh. I usually love Chanel. I adore the womens fragrances, everything from Gardenia, toe #5, #19, Allure, Crystalle and even Chance. Fortunately my boyfriend had acquired his bottle from one of his fraternity brothers who ironically had a girlfriend who hated it. For all you anchorman fans this is what I imagine "sex panther" to smell like. Some of my favorites on men are: Hermes Rocabar, Roberto Cavalli, all of the Creed Fragrances (really none are bad), Calvin Klein classics like Eternity, and even the overly played out Aqua De Gio. It lacks personality points but at least it doesn't make me want to open the door and vomit. Im really disappointed in Chanel for this one. It's not just my guys chemistry either, the bottle smells rancid, I figured, well, it could just be a bad bottle. My curiosity led me the Nordstrom fragrance counter and low and behold. It was still NASTY. I don't get all the good reviews. I would give this a negative rating if I could. It's the worst fragrance I have ever had the misfortune to sniff.
