    Allure by Chanel is a beautiful combination of vanilla, citrus and fruit. The first spray is very light and sweet and the dry down is very soft and warm (vanilla/citrus). Perfect for the hot summer months. Allure has lots of class and is perfect for the office or a daytime get together. It lasts a very long time on me 6-7 hours.

    Genre: Woody Oriental

    The kind of peppered fruit on display in Allure Homme’s top notes has become something of a masculine cliché – see Polo Double Black, Burberry London, 8 88, and Black XS for generic variations on the theme, and Noir Epices for an outstanding example. Allure Homme’s fruit notes are both chemical and sticky-sweet, leaving it closer to Double Black and Black XS in quality. Allure Homme settles into a sweet, spicy woody oriental arrangement, centered primarily on a bland amber, clean patchouli, and tonka (coumarin). I find it tiresome after a short time, and keep wishing that the labdanum base note in the pyramid would materialize and add some animalic edge to the faceless amber. Instead there’s a certain nondescript boozy note, reminiscent once more of Burberry London, and increasingly loud and seemingly artificial woods that eventually throw the composition seriously off balance.

    To Allure Homme’s credit, it never smells completely unpleasant. In fact, it’s ultimately bland and “safe.” Perhaps that’s why it’s been so popular. But with so many fine woody oriental masculines to choose from, I see no reason to wear this undistinguished entry. Go try Héritage, Jaïpur Homme EdT, Body Kouros, or Paul Smith London instead.

    While I can enjoy this for what it is, there are things that keep me from loving this. Chanel quality all the way thru but it just gives off the vibe that this is meant to be safe. Although it's my least favorite of the line, it's still good. I go easy on the trigger because I don't want to buy another bottle and it completes my Chanel collection.

    Merde!

    This used to be a perfume i really liked when it first came out. Good memories: the south of france, sunshine, beach... Is it my imagination or did this undergo a reformulation? Its stuck in my head because of its explosion of fresh and zesty sweet-orange fruit, really juicy with a great natural flow to it. A perfume that didnt took itself too seriously and was enjoying itself. A simple linear, exploding blast of the celebration of summertime- like that moment you realize its summer because the sun touches your soul en melts the last cold in your body, that shiver down your spine that hits you...

    Where did that go? I tried it yesterday with a tester i got from my local perfumery, pretty sure this is not a 10 years old version. So, this sure didnt had that blast of crispy, zesty, ripe orangey fruit, instead it smelled like a pale, synthetic, brushed, plastic-like fruitcocktail with little real freshness, backed up by the smell of a sweet-like glue-note. After an hour or so a manifest of creamy honey-like chamomile-calendula kicked in with an apricot-note. And a polite, clean musk-note that was struggling to find its way in the light amber-vanille accord. Marine-notes all over the place in between all this to, but without the fresh, big-juicy and zesty topnotes that it used to have, radiating its joyfullness inside the heart of it, this structure fails to let its flesh live up, getting warm and being comfortable with itself. The magic has turn cold...

    Originally i think it never got the credit that it deserved to get... Maybe because it appears to be too simple, (linear) and too friendly for a Chanel-perfume. But if you are able to just flow with this one, letting go of a critical nose and preferences, just empty your head and have fun, this perfume made/makes the perfect partner for a memorable, sunny summerday thats impossible to forget. Well, at least thats what happened to me...

    (i still like this better than Terre d'Hermes btw)

    This is where I find myself in relation to the many reviews of this fragrance here:

    agree: warm, sweet/cloying, creamy, generic, feminine

    disagree: fresh, complex, masculine, classy, sexy, tobacco

    This fragrance was barely distinguishable from about a dozen others I smelled yesterday, but the opening appealed to me, so I put one spray on each wrist and went on my way. I was quickly enveloped in a sweet, thick, cloying cloud which did not evolve in any perceptible way over the next hour or so. I was in a museum, and Allure Homme did, indeed, turn heads. But not in a good way. I can't really speak for the dry down (except the bit remaining on my sleeve this morning, which is pleasant enough), because I was beginning to feel sick and had to find a bathroom and scrub this stuff off, which took some doing. I have never had to do that before.

    I found this fragrance terribly sweet, with little to recommend it. It reminded me of the fragrance department in a large, undistinguished department store. A kind of heavy mush of synthetic florals with vague hints of kitchen spices (and over-cooked vegetables?) lurking in the background. This is the fragrance on the middle-aged woman who plops down beside you on an airplane and you just want to...well, you know, you're not happy.

    Although I recognize how subjective this all is, I am a little shocked by the vast number of glowing reviews here. I do notice, though, that more than a few people with lukewarm reviews (and even some who seem to quite dislike this fragrance) for some reason give it the thumbs up. I can only think that's about the brand. Definitely not a fan.
