Platinum Egoiste by Chanel for Men Cologne
Hi everyone this is Sebastian with manlovescologne.com. Today I would like to discuss with you this absolutely fabulous cologne that I have been getting back into wearing called Chanel Egoiste Platinum. Chanel Egoiste Platinum came out in 1993 and I immediately fell in love with it and after the end of the nineties towards the end of the nineties I kind of fell out of love with it because of all the cool hip colognes like Dolce And Gabbana and all the Moschino and all the colognes that I was trying out at that time, kind of was fizzling away from Chanel Egoiste Platinum but all of a sudden the last couple of years I have been kind of going back to the cologne centers and department stores and places like Sephora and just trying it out and just trying it out and I started to fall in love with it again and finally I decided to go ahead and get it and I have to say I am absolutely digging this cologne again. It is the perfect masculine scent.
Anyway Chanel Platinum Egoiste or Chanel Egoiste Platinum comes in a beautiful silver minimalist looking box. Check out the photo above. This is the Eau De Toilette 3.4 fluid ounces or 100 milliliters and basically I have been using it but I saved the box so that I can do the video above. It is, like I said a very minimal silver packaging and the design of the bottle is also very simple and minimalist. And you have got the famous Chanel logo right there with simple Chanel design and then you have the Platinum Egoiste written right there above the logo.
Anyway let’s put a quick spray on my wrist here and then rub it on my other wrist and then put some on my neck here. Chanel Platinum Egoiste was developed in 1993, it was released in 1993 and the nose behind it is Jacques Polge. The top notes are Rosemary, lavender, neroli and petitgrain. The middle notes are Galbanum, clary sage, jasmine and geranium and finally the base notes are amber, sandalwood, oakmoss, vetiver and cedar. Some of my favorite notes in fragrances are things like vetiver, lavender, rosemary, neroli all of these notes I am drawn to. I love any fragrances that consist of these notes. They are fresh kind of scents when fragrances contain these notes. And Chanel Egoiste Platinum is a very fresh masculine scent. It is somewhat on the conservative side so any younger guys in their twenties or you know teens would probably think that Chanel Platinum Egoiste is going to be a bit too conservative for them. But I think if they give it a try they might dig it but any guys in their thirties on probably to even seventies and so on would probably dig this awesome fragrance scent. It is just beautiful it is a very nice, pleasant scent. You can wear it up for work during the day you can wear it in the evening, to go out, to dinners or even clubs. It does last about five to six hours. I think after that you kind of get some faint little scents here and there with the dry down of the fragrance. But it kind of fizzles away after that but I think when you are walking around doing some movements or when your body is moving, I think you can kind of get some faint light whiffs of the lingering scent of the fragrance. So it is not too long lasting but it is, it lasts almost the whole entire work day if you want to call it that.
Anyway some folks have said that Chanel Platinum Egoiste reminds them of an Abercrombie and Fitch fragrance and I have been thinking about this and I don’t think that is true. I mean it has a faint similarity to it but it is complete different kind of a cologne. Abercrombie tends to be a little annoying because they over do it in the stores and when you end up in the department and you end up in a shopping center there is the department store and all that and there’s and Abercrombie store and you kind of smell the annoying Abercrombie and Fitch fragrance or cologne whenever they spray it in the stores. It is totally not the same. Chanel Egoiste Platinum is a beautiful, beautiful scent. Some folks say it’s for spring or summer I like it all year around. I don’t think it is too strong and it, you can wear it in the spring and summer. I specially love it in the fall, right now it is perfect and it is the perfect time for me to pick up a bottle of this cologne and wear it in the fall and then of course you can wear it in the winter too. It lasts, it lasts pretty nicely. The bottle goes for the hundred milliliter or 3.4 ounce bottle of Chanel Egoiste Platinum goes for about ninety dollars so it is a great, perfect deal, it is just every man should have a bottle of this, anything in their thirties and above should have a bottle of this cologne in their collection. It is a timeless classic and I am so glad to have rediscovered it again. I mean there are some fragrances that come out during an era and you never want to go back to but for some reason I kept sniffing this over and over again I just go loving it so I wanted to go back and purchase it again. I am glad I finally did and I am glad I am going to add to my collection of colognes and that I can pick from.
Sometimes I will smell like Chanel Egoiste Platinum a little more conservative sometimes I go with something like an Angel from Thierry Mugler so it is all over the place but I do like a stronger scent and this definitely is from a scale of one to ten probably anywhere between seven and eight for longer lasting fragrance type.
