First, AHSE is neither sport or extreme. There, I got that out of the way....
Second, I was hoping that I would like this version of Allure more, as the designer Jacques Polge uses vanilla and tonka bean to soften up the sharp citrus and aldehydes of the original AHS. The vanilla is not overly prominent, and gives the fragrance a creamy quality which I didn't mind. However, the projection and sillage seem to be greatly reduced as well. I had lost the scent completely within 4 hours of a generous application. It's safe, it's wearable, but it isn't terribly exciting and could've been much better.
Definately not an Extreme verson of original AHS as the name suggests.
I bought this so I had something 'versatile' to wear, lest I wasted precious drops of Tobacco Vanille and Tuscan Leather. All in all, not a bad choice.
As others have flogged this to death repeatedly, I'll add my two flogs -- there's nothing 'sporty' nor 'extreme' about this fragrance. Seems a little heavy for the 'sport' tag.
My nose gets mint and light citrus backed by vanilla in the opening with a tonka/vanilla + cedar dry down. Solid longevity, pleasant scent... not much here to dislike. I wouldn't go so far as to say bland or generic, but definitely not exceptional. I know next to nothing about 'Houses' and their history, heritage, reputation, etc, but I expected a little more from Chanel I think. Now that I know what I know of artisan scents, there are definitely better choices for the same or less $/€/£. But for guys like me that live in a one-stoplight town that have to drive 20 miles to Macy's, Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme is a safe, pleasant choice.
Women *do* seem to like this on me (not part of my purchase criteria), so if that's important to you, don't be afraid to pull the trigger on CAHSEE if it agrees with your nose.
Pay no attention to any negative reviews, they're utterly ridiculous. Anyone that hates on this frag, wants Chanel to stay in the 90s and needs their nose transplanted, because it's not working properly. This frag smells absolutely fantastic and gets literally, unlimited compliments from women! It's refreshing, modern and superior to the original. This, and Aventus are currently my two most complimented frags, and this will get positive attention from the ladies, guaranteed!
Absolutely vile and disguisting smell from top to bottom.
This doesn't deserve "to be a Chanel" and I couldn't believe such a disastrous scent could be created by Jacques Polge (untill I smelled Bleu de Chanel EDP which is a lot worse btw).
It hits you in a face with synthetic notes right off the bat, these are mixed with sweet mandarin orange and tonka. Later on it transforms into a tonka, mandarin, wooods and synthetic concoction.
What's even worse, this nightmare lasts about 12 hours on my skin with quite big sillage.
AHS EDT smells a lot more natural (despite its aldehydic intro).
This is a clone of the original Allure Homme Sport. However, the vanilla is more pronounced in this and the woods seem to stick out to me. I purchased this because I owned the original at one time but got bored with it & besides the fact the it was/is so common. I gave up on it. I have gotten to the point where I do not want to smell like EVERYONE else WHERE EVER I go.
With that being said, this last on my skin six hours with average to strong projection in the beginning. After about 2 hours, I am left with a orange/vanillsh wood type smell that is not unpleasant, but it is synthetic. Chanel normally makes good fragrances, but this I am afraid to my nose is a average offering marketed towards the younger crowed. There is nothing wrong with that, but it is not for me. I will say I do prefer this over the original, but when it comes to Chanel's frags marketed for men, I will stick with the likes of Antaeus! Grown up stuff!
