Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême fragrance notes

Reviews of Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême

Doesn't feel sporty at all; i really didnt like this one when i first smelled it, well, i still dont get crazy about it. However this has gotten me positive reactions so far, so i guess i'll keep repurchasing for as long as they keep making'em.

Very manly! I would love this, on my man.
Smooth, a bit creamy. Very well-blended. The sage and Tonka bean here are exceptional.
There is an intrinsic, mellow sweetness amongst these notes, that screams quiet seduction. Indefinable, it may be the mandarin, musk, and sandalwood.
The exotic ride continues - I am not schooled on what a "sport" scent is supposed to be - I just know, as a chick, I would have no qualms wearing this.
Fresh, creamy, subtle, honeyed goodness all wrapped up in one fragrance. Well done, Chanel!
Sexy and it lasts...

This was one of my favorites when I started collecting fragrances around 2014 or 2015. I still like it, but it can be an uneven ride.

The opening is great. As it transitions from the opening to the base, it can feel off to me. When the base is established, it smells good to me again.

During the opening, I think about replacing my 50-ml bottle with the 150-ml. Before the wearing is over, I decide not to replace it.

Vanilla woods. It smells unisex. It's pleasant but not worth the money.

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême (2012) seeks to be a stronger eau de parfum version of Allure Homme Sport (2004), but it ironically ends up being an entirely different fragrance. I don't know if this was composition by tongue-in-cheek design via house perfumer Jacques Polge, who has already reinterpreted many classics in so-called "Concentrée" or eau de parfum versions, or just happenstance with the way things were increased in volume, combined, and refined, but owning Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême would not be a redundant option for the person already owning Allure Homme Sport (much the same can be said for all flankers in the line). In fact, the main reason to own this is to have a fragrance that is semi-sporty but also ties into the main accord of the original Chanel Allure Homme (1999), which the standard sport model notoriously doesn't. With Chanel Allure Home Sport Eau Extrême, we get the "Polge Sandalwood" creaminess of the original Allure Homme pinning down a fresh accord similar to the older Chanel Allure Homme Sport, but with the neroli and aquatic elements mostly excised from the formula, to be replaced with mint, sage, and cypress.

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême opens with that mint, which of the peppermint variety and coupled with the mandarin from the previous sport flanker, along with the aldehydes from it. The peppermint really hits you in the face full-bore, but the sage and cypress of the middle add an herbal counter-balance that helps subdue some of the "extrême" sportiness of the top with a layer of smooth green, and mulls it over further by warming it with black pepper and cedar also making a return from the first sport flanker, bringing in a contrasting piquant edge without the aquatic element or the sweetness of neroli from the original sport. The pepper, herbs, mint, mandarin orange, and rounded aldehydes make this feel a bit more appropriate as a maelstrom for piercing through gym sweat than the original sport version, but once the base of that trademark sandalwood compound begins to glow, this becomes a strange minty semi-oriental that feels more niche than designer sport fragrance has any right be. Heavy tonka, musk, and ambroxan borrowed from Bleu de Chanel (2010) finish off the dry down, and this ends up sitting rather close to skin after the 3 hour mark, but those first few hours are enough to clear everyone of your favorite gym equipment. I don't know where this fits exactly, or what to really say, but you'll get a good 10+ hours out of it once it dries, so no complaints on performance from me, even if I find a fragrance that goes from locker room to cigar lounge disorienting.

Somebody who needs to have all the Allure flankers will likely find more appeal in this than somebody who just wants a good practical sport fragrance with a Chanel logo. If the latter is your goal, I'd stick with the original Allure Homme Sport, as it feels more dialed-in as a cool workout scent with a bit of skin gravity, or even Allure Home Sport Cologne (2007), which goes old-school sporty with herbs and citrus over musk, while this little number just screams how sporty it wants you to think it is before rocking itself to sleep on your skin as a strangely dynamic semi-oriental eau de parfum with an incongruous opening. Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême certainly delivers the promise of being a more voluminous and powerful entry into the Allure Homme Sport line, but it also has a warmer, slightly more romantic side that riffs from the success of the aforementioned Bleu de Chanel, being a fragrance that essentially has two faces. I wouldn't recommend this for somebody wanting a smaller, more pragmatic wardrobe, but fans of house Chanel and enthusiasts that like odd fragrances might want to pick up one of these. I don't quite click with what's going on here, so this is a neutral for me, but a very respectful one. Definitely give this a sniff if have a spread of the entire line in front of you.
