Reviews of Allure Homme Edition Blanche

I'm always a sucker for scents that combine sparkly ginger and citrus to create an effervescent soda effect. Unfortunately, Chanel buries this effect in a sludge of cheap aquatic aromachemicals that are ultimately the featured stars of this scent.

The soda effect is nice, but I'd recommend Kenzo's short-lived but vastly superior Eau Par Kenzo Pour Homme for a similar shot of refreshment. Meanwhile, Chanel's confusing drydown of fake citrus and disembodied sweetness mixed with cleaning products and swimming pool smells is completely not engaging to me, despite its popularity here. It's not that this is terrible, it's just that I feel like everything about it has been done better elsewhere. Or, more accurately, that there's a great perfume in here, unfortunately drowned in aquatic sludge.

Mostly what I get is a lemon and vanilla scent with a bit of pepper thrown in on a clean vetiver base.

Slightly creamy/powdery...but nothing like the powder that is Burberry Brit for example.(I can't stand that) This Chanel offering is blended wonderfully. Very versatile scent with great longevity on me.

Soft starts almost scentless,
then freshness and joy born with an orange or tangerine very aromatic sweet,
with other small notes also fresh smells around,
  and continues so for a while,
perhaps pepper help on this,
  then the same scent almost linear mixed good with my skin especially with sweat.
What bothers me is its linearity from start to finish.
Is refined and clearly has some class,
at one point it seems a little to Anteus.
It is a rich and refined citrus salad,
and with respect I dare say that falls short of the glories of the past of this house,
That is just my opinion.

The citrusy opening and creamy vanilla lemon cheese cake like smell makes it a delicious juice that everyone who could smell it will love.

I really like this one. Always in my collection.
It smells really elegant and luxurious.
I don't wear it everyday, but just when I want to feel more classy.

Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche is unsurprisingly a fragrance that is very popular in the online community but is relatively difficult to find in stores among other men's Chanel offerings. Given the hype and descriptions of a lemon cream pie smell, this was a blind buy for me and at the time I recently bought it, seemingly only the EDP was available. I never smelled the EDT before so the EDP is my only impression of the fragrance, and the consensus is mainly that the EDP is very similar or the same as the EDT.

That said, the fragrance is excellent--I don't find it especially woody, but rather a mix of lemon and vanilla that is artfully crafted to not smell like cleaning fluid or a room fragrance but rather something that a man can and should wear. Of course it leans toward warmer weather but it's robust enough to project in colder weather, like this morning at 47F. It begins with more citrus and devolves into more vanilla, as one might expect. Luckily, for me, it does not come off too powdery as most of the bite is in its opening citrus. And despite its citrus opening, it is unoffensive and frankly could probably work for women, as well. Projection and longevity are strong for an EDT, on par for an EDP, but nothing crazy.

Definitely a gem that needs to be explored among fans of Chanel and those curious if it's worth the hype--for something priced similar to Bleu, which is also outstanding, Allure Homme Edition Blanche is surely worthwhile, as this could be a summer go-to option for many.
