Reviews of Allure Homme Edition Blanche Eau de Toilette

It does smell somewhat like lemon myringue pie but it's nothing to write home about in my opinion as a fragrance due to the subpar performance. It also leans feminine. It's ok.

Chanel's strict policy on letting sampler companies sell Chanel samples means I had to track down a sample on eBay for this. Well, after that effort, I finally give this a spritz...

...It's decent. It's just Allure Homme (which I think is a bit "mall" to begin with) with a fairly nice lemon accord at the top. I sort of get a lemon pie note, but depending on the fickleness of my nose, some days it comes off as a bathroom cleaner lemon. Not often, though. That quickly dries down to a fuzzy vetiver, then down to a mall scent.

I'd love to see a house like Comme des Garcons try out this idea, since I know they can do photorealistic accords. As it stands, Chanel did a decent enough job, but not "wow!" territory for me.

The good news is that it smells quite good, especially after the initial 5 minutes or so.

It opens with a lemon-pink pepper pairing that is neither invigorating nor zesty but is rather restrained. On bad days this can be mistaken for a furniture varnish. The opening leads to a very linear creamy (vanilla) lemon fragrance with hint of some woods. It's not cheaply made, the 'Chanel quality' is discernible.

However, it is also rather boring. There is no development, no dynamism, and the prolonged accord that sits on the skin is not that compelling either.

Additionally it is extremely shy, and tenacity on skin is quite insubstantial.

Mix the Allure base with creamy lemon notes and you get this summer staple for your wardrobe.

It does go beyond the usual citrus scent in both classiness and performance. Should be a go to in warmer weather where you need to dress it up a bit.

A crowd-pleaser that's actually excellent in many situations, so don't be afraid to wear in not-so-warm settings as well.

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.
