A fresh, light scent which is less an obvious flanker of the original Allure Homme Sport than, perhaps, Chanel's take on having its own classic "sport" scent (cf. Dior Homme Sport, which smells nearly identical to AHSC).
I like the white musk in this one, which takes over as the dominant note almost within minutes of the spray-on flurry of citrus fruit peel. The musk sets this one apart from other "sport" fragrances, providing an anchoring effect to this one. Tonka is just barely present, acting more to accentuate the musky-fresh composition than to inject perceivable sweetness. The citron adds the cologne touch that is worthy of AHSC's name.
Overall, a surprising fragrance to me because I was expecting the original Allure Homme Sport to envelope me in its own welcoming way, yet I got what strikes me as a fairly nice, though not totally original, take on warm weather colognes with a tiny nod towards vetiver scents (though not a note listed in this one). Pleasant, predictable, and "friendly" outing from Chanel.
I like this one very much.
The opening is a very strong predominant Citrus. It's quasi-artificial, like the one you could smell on hot towels in an asiatic retaurant ... or in airplanes!
But the guy is not that simple. It's a Cologne with a musk base (not herbal). The strong lime decreases quite fast and makes place for the other components.
Allure Sport Cologne is really very easy to wear: of course in summer, but I've tried it anywhere, anyhow, anyseason .... it is always wearable.
The projection is discrete, but poeple really often like it and ask me what it is! Sillage is mild and longevity poor.
But you can still find something interesting on your clothes the day after.
I use it as an "innocent" smell when I don't know what to wear, or when I need something light. It also has really something exciting: it's a joy for me when I spray it on me.
I am not expert enough to guess the direct relation with the original "Allure" - it's a double-flanker after all.
In my opinion, Chanel could have released this as an independent scent and called it "Eau légère" or "Eau d'été", or "Cologne Sport" after all but without any reference to Allure.
This Chanel is my everyday nice friend.
As a remark, I would mention that I once had a big bottle, and found that the lime was not really fresh - almost like curry - (maybe a batch problem). I always buy small ones.
A hard and sharp lemon - citrus cologne with an unpleasant white musk base.
Smells like the wet wipes they hand out on buses in the middle east.
Having owned and liked Allure Homme Sport EdT I was expecting something of similar quality. Nope...has a big dose of white musk right off the bat which immediately screams cheap. The lemon note isn't well done and smells like something you'd clean counters with. White musk is one of the notes I don't care for, but I do enjoy Dior Homme Cologne 2013 which also has white musk. Don't bother with this and stick to Allure Homme Sport EdT or something along the lines of Dior's Eau Sauvage.
Is probably the least needed fragrance of the Allure line. It only comes in a big bottle of cologne strength. Was probably made to spray yourself with, play around of golf or tennis and then go to the showers. I get the scent of peppered lemons. A truly decadent fragrance.
To me, this along with DHS are the best fragrances alimonadas designer market. Fantastic. Great quality, great performance on the skin, but I feel that something is missing. Recognize how good she is, so a thumbs up.
