Summary: I have been wearing this fragrance for over 17 years. About 2 maybe 3 years ago I bought a small flask at the airport because I had forgotten to put a perfume in my bag and this was on discount so I thought; you can't have too much of a good thing.
Summary: This was my "go to" fragrance for a long, long time. Without going into detsil, I would say this is a modernized classic. A fusion of old meets new, but in a sophisticated and classy way, not synthetic or short lived.
Summary: I tried this out at Chanel's and I loved it. Since I have so many fragrances already, I came home with the heavenly scent on both my arms to search for women's opinion on this fragrance. Wow...it is in the minority of women that like it. So...pass for me.
Summary: I just bought the new version and it is working great. There are no performance or longevity issues. It projects and lasts over 12 hours. Great scent, and another classic by Jacques Polge. It's completely different from Chanel Egoiste, so don't try to compare them. 10 of 10.
Summary: At first I didn't like this but after a few wearings on the skin it really grew on me, I still don't love this fragrance but its firmly in my 'like' section. My words of advice would be to sample on the skin and not paper/test strips and give it time before you decide to buy or walk away from it.
