I've been trying many many after shave/eau de toilette over the last 10 years or so. Kouros, Pi, Anteus...and then I discovered Egoiste. The smell is both discreet (it does not harrass your nose or worse the others' nose) and have got a distinctive smell with a lot of personality. The perfect balance. Egoiste exists in 2 versions. I prefer the normal one, the "platinum" version is apparently for the UK market but to me has not got as much personality as the normal one. This is my final choice...I will stick to this one!
Of course, I don't actually use it myself, being a woman, but I thought there may be some men out there who would appreciate a woman's opinion on the subject. In short, Egoiste Platinum is sexy! Don't know what they put in it, but they should bottle it (oh yes, they have, haven't they?). Not only does it make my hubbie's skin all soft, but the smell ... ooh, it's just lovely! My husband himself says that he likes it because it doesn't irritate his sensitive (ahhh!) skin and he likes the smell (obviously). It comes in a spray-on version as well which makes it last longer, and it does actually last a long time.
Chanel brought out ?goiste in 1990 / A very extravagant smell, characterised by its strong composition from predominantly warm, ambery wood notes /
