    So after much research (and help from people here) I recently picked up some Allure, which I love.

    Longevity is good but I seem to get very little projection with it.

    None of my friends around me this evening could barely smell anything on me and this was maybe 45 minutes after two sprays.

     

    Is this scent known for weak projection?

    For myself, I think I get average projection and sillage.  It's not particularly strong (a la A*Men), but I have noticed the one time I oversprayed it that it was a little too strong.  I usually hit 3-4 sprays, with 1 of those on my shirt, and that's plenty for all-day wear.

    I think i'm anosmic to something in Allure Homme, I don't smell it very strongly myself.

     

    Those around me notice it though when I wear 2 sprays

    Surprisingly, this is really weak on my skin. Along with Edition blanche - the weakest from the Chanel line for me.

    I personally don't have any projection issues with this scent.

    Cant comment on Allure but the Edition Blanche smells amazing but has horrible sillage and longevity.  Very frustrating

    Not sure what everybody is talking about but edition Blanche lasts forever and with the allure I would go for 4 shots...not two....you're being too conservative with the sprays....spray one to the t-shirt too....2 blasts center of your chest, one blast on each side of your neck and hit the front of your t-shirt collar....two sprays ain't going to do shit unless your Montale or Molecule 01....

    I currently don't have a bottle and would like to get one again. In the past I've never had a projection issue and it seemed to last.

    The whole Allure line is very weak in projection and longevity. Please don't waste your money.
