    Yeah Versace PH is basically the same scent.

    I also think Versace Blue Jeans and YSL L'Homme are along similar lines but different.

    Neither Versace Blue Jeans or YSL L'Homme are ANYTHING like Chanel Allure Homme Sport, I don't understand how you can even say that.

    Versace pour Homme is similar at first, but quickly becomes a very very different scent. Only Allure Homme Sport smells truly like Allure Homme Sport, and if one loves this scent, they'll likely spot VPH for what it is and what it isn't.

    Allure Sport is my favorite fresh scent!

    Can't think of anything close atm. It would have to be melony-citrusy, metalllic, and musky.

    I agree with Sokku. There is not nothing like Channel Allure Sport the only one I have smelled that have similarities with Allure Sport is Dior Sport but that one is also pricey. Why don't you go to marshalls or Ross they sell some really good scents for your age although not at same level of Allure Sport. From what I've seen they have Polo Explorer, Style and Play, and Tommy Bahamas St. South Sails, and Very Cool.

    I agree. If you like this particular scent, there's almost nothing that comes across exactly like it. The only thing close is Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne - for almost the exact same price.

    If you simply have to go cheap, then sniff in Sephora and Macy's, and buy in Marshall's, or online. Sniff-n-dash. Perfectly understandable for young folks. But you can't get Chanel that way. I don't think I've ever seen Chanel cheap anywhere.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Isn't Allure Homme Sport just Allure Homme in a thin aquatic disguise ?

    I expected that, but to my nose, the sport is more of a spicy citrus scent, and the Cologne a woody citrus scent. Frankly, I think that these should have all been released with different names. It's as if every scent that Chanel makes is an Allure Homme flanker. There is a common reference in all of them - a small accord that references back to the original. But it's pretty thin, and could easily pass for something like guerlinade. Perhaps this is Chanel's way of entering the massive over-launching of scents that everybody does nowadays, while seeming to be somehow above such undignified behavior. Smart.

    I like how AHS smells and I have tried it many times on skin and on paper but somehow I have not bought a bottle. I'm always telling myself that AHS will be the next purchase but I end up getting something else instead

    Versace pour homme all the way i have tried it many time and it really similar to AHS which i own, but next time when i want AHS i would go for VPH which save you alot of money and last a long time!

    If I may suggest, ask for a gift card to Sephora or something similar. This way you can still check out other available scents without making a final purchase!
    I have: Davidoff Relax, Dior Homme Sport, Boss Selection, Azzaro Visit, and Creed MI (will provide # on bottle for verification) available.

    Looking for the following: DG The One, Himalaya, YSL L'Homme, John Varvatos (not vintage) Canali For Men or Paypal.

    Buy a NIB Chanel Allure Homme Sport on Ebay.

    The price of a similar but slightly less expensive scent from a store will be about the same as the real thing from Ebay.

    Allure sport is currently growing on me in a huge way. I'd say splurge and get it.

    Isn't Ebay riddled with fakes, particularly Chanels?

    Plum Japonais,
    Lavender Palm, Tobacco Oud, Café Rose, etc...

    I bought some Chanel Allure Sport off ebay quite some time ago (don't know if it's fake or not).
    I remember having a sample of Nautica Competition and thinking that there were similarities.

    I agree with Sokkou, just buy Allure Homme Sport, nothing that's identical to it.

    What is the difference between the two Chanel Pour Homme Sports? One is in the clear bottle and one is in the gray bottle.

    I think you mean Chanel PH Sport (silver bottle) vs. Chanel PH Sport cologne (clear bottle)? The cologne is basically more citrusy.
