IT is a great deal went it comes to the prices and is a gift for some one that you just need to buy a gift, but , if you are looking for a fine masculine scent go check the bond no.9 couter they have a scent call wall street you can go wrong it also an Eau de parfum so you can use as an after shave lotion because of the oil concentration.
This is a warm, spicy, sweet-ish men's scent. I smell notes of sandlewood, it almost gives off a cinnamon impression. Definitely a woodsy scent.
One of my all time favourite scents. I actually wear this myself but it smells gorgeous on men, and generally I've found that the men who tend to wear it are also pretty gorgeous themselves - win win.
Earthy, spicy, and warm. Very masculine and sensual, yet I love to wear it also! It makes me feel sexy, like snuggling into a boyfriend's sweater after sharing an intimate moment.
I had ordered Egoiste a few weeks ago after reading some excellent reviews, but in the mean time I forgot what scents and notes it was meant to contain. It arrived this morning, and rather than wait for my boyfriend, I immediately had to try it out on myself. I have been markedly distracted ever since: it is intoxicating. Regardless of what it is meant to smell like, I immediately associated it with saddle soap and honey, making it warm and masculine, but also sophisticated. Truly an exceptional cologne!
This smells soooooo good! It is the nicest smelling thing I ever encountered, spicy, warm, sensual and very exciting. It makes me want to sniff my boyfriend all day long. It lasts for ever and doesn't really change during the day. I wish thay would make a more feminine version so I can smell this devine myself.
Egoiste is one of those scents that evokes a strong reaction, you either love it or hate it. Personally it is one of my favorite scents, and one I often get positive comments on from women. The initial smell is overly sweet but I really love the vanilla and sandalwood dry down, and it has great lasting power. I much prefer this to the more popular platinum egoiste which is a lighter fresh scent.
Egoiste is a very strange smelling fragrance
that simply tries to go in too many different directions at once. The
tangerine, cinnamon, vanilla, rosewood and sandalwood notes combine
to give Egoiste a sickly sweet "cinnamon rolls in a woodshop"
smell. It reminds me of a dutch oven cobbler cooking over a hot ember
camp fire, minus the smoke. And sadly, the strong rose note only
intensifies the cloying, sickly mess. I find Egoiste to be too
strange for even my eclectic fragrance tastes and that's saying a
notes: Sicilian Tangerine, Brazilian Rosewood
notes: Coriander, Damask Rose
notes: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Ambrette seed
While the EDT is much too cloying and strangely sweet with its
clashing rose, wood and sweet notes, the Cologne
Concentree version of Egoiste is much more
wonderfully blended and balanced. The wood is the more dominant part
instead of the cloying sweetness, while the rose note is also
stronger giving it a vibrant almost sparkling quality. The sweet and
cinnamon notes are not as strong in the CC version and don't punch
you in the face like the EDT. It still has a slight cinnamon roll
accord but it is much more mellow and has a lovely supporting cast of
notes in the much better CC version. This is the one to get?Chanel
Egoiste Cologne Concentree. Though better than the EDT, I still don't
know how to fit it into the fragrance rotation of a young guy like
myself. I find it would probably work best as a romantic evening
fragrance for the 40+ crowd. Because of an extreme lack of
versatility it gets only 3.5 out of 5 lippies and swapped away by me.
Mmmmm...this smells very sexy, I love this stuff. It's pretty unisex too! I didn't care for the Platinum version of this at all though, something is just "off" with that one...but this one...good stuff!!
I LOVE this on my SO. I wonderful scent that I'm addicted to. I little spicy, exotic & fresh. A great gift for your favorite guy! continued >>
