    Hmmm...I'd go for Allure Homme Sport, but it's so hard picking a frag as a gift for someone else.

    Good luck

    As an owner of Platinum Egoiste and a previous owner of Allure Sport, and a tester of Allure, I would pick Platinum Egoiste.

    i'm 18 and it's great young masculine scent. PE has great sillage/projection and great longevity. It lasts 4-6 hours with great sillage and 12+ hours of subtle, close to the skin smell. It lasts days on clothing.

    Allure sport..hmm... what did it smell like again? EXACTLY. I don't even remember because it was a generic scent. I remember it was sort of powdery or something, but not unique apparently because I don't remember it.

    Allure just didn't fit me.

    It's not listed as an option, however I prefer Pour Monsieur Concentrée.

    Of the three you have listed, I would choose Allure Homme.

    I have a few questions for you...

    First, why do you only want to give him a Chanel and not something from another designer or fragrance house?

    What else does he own and like?

    Where do you want him to wear this scnet and for which occasions?

    These will help us answer which you should get for him. I can't really figure out which he'll like because I don't know anything about the situation or the type of scent person he is.

    thank you for interested in helping me.
    first,i just want him to have something from Chanel.that's all.
    he own Dunhill Desire Blue,Gaultier Le Male and S.Ferragamo pour Homme.
    i want him to wear it anywhere and anytime not just on special occasion only.
    i think he love something woody and aromatic.
    i went to a Chanel counter today and sniffed the Pour Monsieur Concentre and i love it.i want him to wear Farenheit from Dior but he disliked it.
    well..i might buy him Allure Homme.anyway do you have any suggestion from the other house.i'm considering anyway.thanx.

    Hi redrabbit,
    said that you give as possible choices what IMO are the less appealing chanels for men (specially I'm not fond of allure PH and don't like at all the sport) probably I'd chose Platinum among them.
    Anyway, if you liked Pour Monsieur edt Concentrée, why not buying this for your bf? I find it to be perfect (and I bought and wore it when I was only 17, so don't tell me it smells old ). Another one maybe you never smelled and that's absolutely fantastic is Antaeus for sure.
    It really depends on what your bf likes best.
    I recently also tried the new release Allure Homme Sport cologne, totally different from the edt and it's at least a decent turn on the fresh summer juices.

    Allure homme sport is really good, I agree. The others are too though. I don't think you can go wrong with any of those.

    Since he owns Desire Blue and JPG Le Male, I would recommend Allure Homme since he seems to like sweet/lush Oriental scents.

    I'd pick Allure Sport, too. I own this & I definitely think a confident women can wear it. If you get this one, you two could share it
