A case when comercial flop equals masterpiece!

The probably least sold of Chanel men fragrances is just the best. Created in line with Bois des Iles and initially called Bois Noire, Egoiste is clearly a troubled child like the name indicates. It isn’t there to please the nose and sell in duty free thanks to ozonic marine or fruity bullshit! It is there to give some man the distinctive …

This is the holy grail of men's colognes/perfumes in my opinion! It is not available here in Canada, and I had to search around. It's still available in the states and worldwide. I'm so glad I finally found a bottle. First released in 1990, top notes include rosewood and coriander. Heart notes are Bulgarian rose, carnation and warm cinnamon. The base notes include of sandalwood …Read more

Got this for my boyfriend because I think it is the best smelling male perfume ever! It's sexy and manly but not in a lumberjack way, lol. It's sophisticated, thank you chanel.

Spicy, cedar rose with a lush sandalwood dry down. Nero 77's review says it all, except that I would not compare it to FM musc Ravageur which, IMO, is sharper (Lavander) and more powdery. Perhaps POALs dusky spicy older sibling.

Today this would be unisex. I also get a fleeting impression of leather before the dry down.

If you like Amouage but need less of a …

First time I smelled this was after I had wandered over to the men's section of sephora having given up on getting a non sweet, non fruity perfume in the women's section. I promptly fell in love with this perfume & I can't wait till I can get myself a bottle finances allowing.
The first hit I get is peppery citrus. Then as it warms up on my skin I get something that smells …

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 this is a masterpiece of male perfumery …

I would hardly consider anyone wearing Égoïste selfish - anyone around you is going to enjoy it too!

Égoïste is the younger and louder brother of the demure, soft-spoken and old-fashioned Bois des ÃŽles. It opens with a burst of dry yet sweet melange of woods, citrus and spice. It actually reminds me of another favourite 80's fragrance, which is also drenched in sandalwood: …

I finally decanted some Egoiste into a roller ball bottle (in order to control application). I get the candied fruit notes but also a rubbery, powdery accord that keeps me sniffing some more. It has tremendous radiance. If my huge bottle doesn't last me until I'm 90, I'll know I'm using too much!

What an unusual masculine! Egoiste is a surprising blend of herbs, candied fruit, florals, tobacco, spices, woods, and vanilla. If this sounds like a kitchen sink kind of construction, I apologize-- it's much much better than that. There is a touch of bitter herbal notes in the top that provide a wonderful counterpoint to the sweeter, more lush notes of candied, cooked fruit and …Read more

This fragrance is a must for me, i cannot be without it! I've worn this since i was in high school and everyone used to comment on how lovely i smelt, it waft's around you all day and for this being released in the 80's is actually a huge shock because it isn't really overpowering or musky, quite sharp on my skin actually. this is my favorite fragrance to wear in the winter …Read more
