    Default Your favorite men's Chanel?

    Ok, so I just bought Bleu and I like it. I like aquatics so this was really nice, however I don't see much love for it so far on this site.

    So, being that I am not that familiar with the Chanel line, what would you say I must own from this house? Thanks.

    If you like aquatics, then i would recommend Allure Homme Sport - i personally dont like it, but im not so fond of aquatics in generel.

    Three of my Top 15 are from Chanel

    Platinum Egoiste
    Pour Monsieur
    Antaeus

    They are certainly must owns for me. If I was forced to settle on one, it would be PE.

    The number one spot is equally shared by two finalists: Antaeus and Pour Monsieur

    My favorite Chanel is a tie between Sycomore and Bois de Illes. Both just absolutely magnificent compositions (IMO, of course).

    Going by what's marketed as men's, I'd say Antaeus and Égoïste.

    Other favourites on the unisex/feminine scale are Sycomore, Cuir de Russie, Bois des Îles, No 19, No 5.

    Not a big fan, and would probably opt for Allure Sensuelle over the "men's" stuff, actually. However, if I want something simple but high quality I have the "For Men" aftershave, which seems more like EdC strength. I've still got to decide on Antaeus (vintage), but the problem is that I don't find myself interested in wearing it for several hours. For an hour, it's nice, though.

  24. #24

    Default Re: Your favorite men's Chanel?

    Antaeus.

    I don't use or enjoy Pour Monsieur Concentree or Egoiste as much as I have in the past. I never have cared for Egoiste Platinum.

    From what I have tried I like Chanel PM and Antaeus, perhaps PM just a bit more than Antaeus.

    Allure and Platinum Egoiste are kinda meh for me. I need to try the original Egoiste. If there were a netflix of frag sampling, I would move it up higher on my queue.

    Pour Monsieur (the "original" 1955 version), followed closely by Antaeus. Honorable mention to Coromandel.

    I like many of the scents for girls - but I haven't found a Chanel for boys that i really love yet.
    - Antaeus and Edition Blanche are the only ones that i wear every now and then
    - Allure homme sport ist not for me, but something i regularly suggest to friends who ask me for help
    - I'm still looking forward to test Sycomore and Coromandel
    To sum it up, i think Chanel does much better in their female department than with their male fragrances.

    I used to wear (and love) Antaeus in the 80s but heard it's been reformulated which has kept me from going back to it. Can anyone confirm this?

    Curently have a bottle of Allure Blanche, which is pretty decent but wouldn't say it's my top pick.

    Yes, it's a total unsubtle reformulation. But try it, you might like it even though it's not the same fragrance!

    I never wanted to wear the original Antaeus because it was much too strong and somewhat obnoxious to me. The reformulation is not overpowering and I do wear it, even to work. It is much improved in my opinion.

    Thank you everyone. Looks to me like Antaeus is the clear winner here. I'm going to have to sample it. I'm assuming it is no longer in department stores like Macy's or Neiman's. Does Chanel have it's own store online akin to Creed? The search is on.

    Allure Homme, followed by Platinum Egoiste (one of my latest additions). Allure used to be my #1 Lady-killer. We worked magic together....

    I havent smelled everything from Chanel's line, but right off the top of my head, I'd say Allure Homme Sport and Pour Monsieur.

    perhaps not strictly "for man" but who cares what the label says...

    Cristalle EDT
    BdI parfum version
    31 rue Cambon
    Eau de Cologne

    if strictly "for man"

    by far Pour Monsieur (the older yellowish juice)
    Egoiste (prefer Concentree)

    Does anyone know exactly when Antaeus was reformulated? I have a chance at an older bottle with 75ml left on an auction site, but don't want to bid if it's the same one I tried recently.

    It was majorly reformulated in the 90's, and there may have been subtle tweaks since then. The big one was in the 90's though.

    My two faves are:

    1. Bleu de Chanel

    2. Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    These two fragrances to me are easy wearing sophistication; light, yet noticeable, woodsy, yet restrained.
