    All of them are good for summer. However, the first 2 is over used. Go with Bleu de Chanel

    Edit: And of the three, Bleu de Chanel has a touch of sophistication. The other two is just too "sporty".

    I think the Blanche might be a little more less cloying than Sport but I am not so sure about Bleu De Chanel yet..
    I tried it but I dont know how it will work in HEAT.

    Not a huge fan of Bleu, but it's better than we give it credit for being. I think it's pretty versatile. Not sure yet, but I think it will be a good warm weather scent.

    Bleu doesn't smell like detergent, don't listen to that guy.

    Blanche smells like Lemon Cake or Lemon meringue pie.
    Bleu smells like a mellow Grapefruit. Probably the lightest most pleasant opening scent out of the 3.
    Sport is a straight up Citrus blast. It projects the strongest out of the 3.

    I would go with Blanche. Bleu is the more classy of the scents, I would wear it to a summer night date. Sport is great also, I would wear it in the morning before it gets too hot or to the gym.

    Well actually I'd go with Cristalle EdT, but if you're insistent on citrus-heavy then Eau de Cologne.

    problem is I like blanche better but it only lasts a couple of hours on me..and Homme Sport is like a monster on me I can smell it forever and cant get it off with a shower.
    anybody else had that problem..I think Allure Sport might be a little cloying in the heat. Blanche goes away fast.

    I would go with Bleu De Chanel and here is why: I think it combines some of the best elements of Allure Homme Sport and Edition Blanche, while at the same time introducing some new elements of its own. I have tested Bleu on paper and on my skin for a few weeks now, and I've been really impressed with it's longevity and subtlety. So impressed, that it's convinced me to get rid of Allure Homme Sport and make it my warm weather go-to fragrance.

    Bleu is mainly renowned for its amazing opening--and it is great, one of the best around--but for my money, the drydown is where this fragrance really stands out. It's got a really nice, clean vetiver note that lends it an air of sophistication that separates it from other run-of-the-mill sports/aquatic fragrances. I've read a lot of the reviews on here, and it doesn't get much love. But I think it's a really solid release all things considered, and it will come into its own this spring/summer. Having said all that, I will say that it is a bit overpriced. That's the one big drawback I see with Bleu. It's slightly higher than any of the other Allure series releases which is a bit hard for me to understand.

    Tested all tree last month because I was looking for a summer fragrance.
    I found Homme Sport the best of the three sporty Allures. Too much citrus in the other two.
    Still I thought Homme Sport was too round from start, so I didn't buy it.
    Just got the normal Allure which I really love and being so simular I knew I wouldn't give Homme Sport much attention.

    Bleu is nice, but a bit of a weird woody/aqua mix. I might need some more time to grow into that.
    Besides, everyone seems to be wearing that one at the moment.

    Instead I picked Platinum Egoiste as my summer Chanel for this year. And I'm sure I picked the best one for my needs.
    Much more original then the 3 sporty allures: layered and beautiful notes that all please me.
    Now bring in the sun!!

    You might wanna give Versace Pour Homme a try. Its overall scent is somewhere between Allure Homme Sport and Edition Blanche.

    i agree with that , versace pour homme too me it's very similarto allure homme sport
    it is a cheapest alternative

    yesterday i tested for the first time edition Blanche
    on my right wrist
    and also tested Virgin Island Waters on the outside part of the hand
    i don't know if for the fact that the application areas were to close
    i couldn't differ from each other to much
    Virgin Island Water is lime and coconut, and has a creamy suntan viBe
    and Edition Blanche has a creamy viBe too, and has the lemon too (creamy lemon pie as much people had descriBed it)
    has anyBody out there smelled similarities in this Both fragrances?

    in conclusion:
    it is a very hard decission, i would go for allure homme sports Because it has Better projection and sillage
    while edition Blanche i felt it closer to the skin, and it didn't last too much on my skin, mayBe 5 or 6 hours
    also it has a disgusting opening note for me, it reminded me of tar, But the dry down is really good, quality scent
    and mayBe i would Buy allure homme sport first, But some time later i would Buy the edition Blanche too

    I have both Edition Blanche and Bleu de Chanel, and for me, even though Blanche starts with its fresh lemon, it moves into a "heavier" sweet oriental (tonka) base which for me gets a bit much in hot weather (though it does certainly last more than a few hours). Bleu would work better; after the grapefruit-mint-ginger opening, the base is a lighter vetiver-"wood" accord which I doubt will get as cloying in heat.

    It also does not smell like laundry detergent to me, but hey, everyone has their own associations.

    Best advice, as always, is to test for yourself and go with what YOU enjoy, not with what gets the most votes on a forum.

    Allure Homme Edition Blanche. I'd been concerned about longevity when I first tested it, but I find it lasts well.
