I wasn’t a fan of Allure Homme Sport, but I find this Eau Extreme version to be more palatable. I agree that it hardly seems like a sports fragrance… the dominance of clary sage / sandalwood in the opening distances it from the sports category. Also, this opening, with the help of mint, suggests to me that this fragrance wasn’t meant for the younger fragrance wearer.
The remainder of the fragrance is uncomplicated… it is a straightforward but quite competent white musk, tonka and cedar accord… This accord is pleasantly edgeless and merely… suggestive… of a sports fragrance in tenor and strength (I think it should be a bit fresher).
Not an inspired fragrance, but it exhibits Chanel quality and Chanel class. I think the “sport” label suggests something that the fragrance doesn’t really deliver, but then truth in naming has never been a strong element of the fragrance business. I believe that Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme will rightfully have its devotees. For me, a somewhat hesitant thumbs-up.
Smells like a blend of Code, Le Male, and Allure.
I know the original sport has synthetics. But this is worse, the mint is very chemical smelling, and so is the vanilla.
It you're looking for a sports and fresh fragrance, the original EDT is much better, much fresher, less sweet, and the synthetics are less in your face.
Purchesed the Eae de toilette concentree version, first time use, I admit I over did it, but Ive had performance issues with frags recently so I wanted people to smell it, I work with all females and they like when I smell good, 10 sprays to each side of my neck, smells a little generic, but not bad, projected like a beast, lasted 12 hours+, happy with the purchase, 20 sprays is a bit much you can go far less and I'm sure will still project.

At first couple of testings, it gave me a sour/rotten note mixed with some aquatic & sweetness in the background with great projection & longevity.
Could not resist & bought it a month later.
Was really impressed with this stuff.
I get a heavy dose of mint & lemony orange on the top with hints of woods & creaminess. If i stay indoors it transitions into a semi sweet fragrance with hints of freshness from the top which i do not like as much.
This shines really well outdoors in the heat more than 35 deg. Celsius, where its top notes rise up & give a very fresh minty, citrus vibe with a very mild sweetness behind.
Love this stuff
Longevity: 12+ hrs
One of the best flankers of a flanker money can buy. Both AHS and AHSEE are great.AHSEE is alittle better because it performs better but you can go wrong with either.
