Reviews of Allure Homme

Allure Homme smells like another men's designer fragrance I've tried. I can't remember what it is, but it's not my favorite. It's a strong, synthetic smell that stays potent for about 3 hours. When it becomes more of a skin scent, I like it better. it's actually kind of enjoyable at that point. This is not something I would purchase, but would try to wear for a while if received as a gift.

Wood, spice and eyes closed.
Tobacco sans tobacco.
Toasts with mulled champagne.

A remarkable, bracing, dreamy fragrance from Chanel.

The formulation is clear, even, simple, and predictable from spray-on and forward. Chanel’s Allure Homme is a potent oriental scent, and its invigorating sweet-spicy profile is love it or hate it. The foundation blends seamlessly with the slight citrus and sweet and spicy top layers: Vetiver, patchouli, cedar and sandal woods punctuate the smoothness evident throughout.

Chanel Allure Homme is one I HIGHLY recommend checking out if you like scents like Baldessarini Concentree, Dolce & Gabbana’s By Man and The One, and (most strikingly) like its near clone, Perry Ellis “m” (another huge favorite of mine, which happened to come out five years after this one).

Allure Homme Sport is definitely a watered down and "freshened" version of this one, but it's still a pleasant flanker that's also worth trying.

I must apologize to you, Allure. Years ago, I wrote you off as conventional. But, I bought you because my then GF liked you. Every GF after that also liked you. Recently, I found you again in my closet. And there you were: an understated classic. You are no rockstar. You were not designed to be one. Your creator is a master of a house with noble lineage in perfumery. You were designed to be worn by men who like to smell really good--in the boardroom, park, cafe, car, bedroom, anywhere, and by men of all ages. You were perfectly designed. Never change. And may you live forever.

Smells great. The only drawback is its high price tag.

Perry Ellis M is similar, but the difference is very real.

Let me just say first and foremost that I am a woman so I'm reviewing this from a secondhand point of view. I'm not wearing it myself, but having just come from sampling this at the store on my husband.

This fragrance is not ground-breaking and does not project out and scream "look at me!" to everyone in the room. It doesn't have to. It quietly insinuates itself into the female psyche and then heads silently right into our drawers. This is a man's skin, but better one thousand percent. A skin scent that makes you edible, quiet frankly. Like you guys, my husband was not impressed with it at the store and went for the typical Chanel Bleu instead. Little does he know I'm getting online and ordering this anyway. It's soft and safe and yet still totally sexy to women just the same regardless of how boring you guys find it. As a woman I'm so bored with smelling the same old clean chilly aquatics and cold breezy aromatics on every man in the crowd. Give me something warm, sensual, and yummy for goodness sake! Too many "must project power" scents in the crowd, and not enough "Come hither, woman" fragrances.
