Chanel Allure Homme Sport.
Face Off:Allure Homme Blanche Edition VS Allure Sport VS Bleu De Chanel..Best .Summer Chanel.
I know this was done already however I need help now.
Chanel Allure Homme Sport.
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.
The original Allure Homme.
P.S. I don't think Bleu belongs in the group.

Allure Homme Blanche
If you want to smell like an orange cream pop: Sport
If you want to smell like a lemon cream pop: Blanche
If you want to smell like a laundry detergent: Bleu
I guess I want to smell like a a pop rather than detergent.
And the winner is Pour Monsieur!
I cant find Pour Monsieur locally anymore.
+ (i lost the count) Chanel Allure Homme Sport.
Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.
Just test them all and see which one suits your taste and which one works best on your skin.
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.
Of the three, Blanche definitely gets my vote. But don't completely overlook Cologne either!
TOP 5 hot weather:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. Lalique Encre Noire
3. Creed Aventus
4. Creed Millesime Imperial
5. Azzaro Chrome Sport
TOP 5 cold weather:
1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
2. Chanel Coromandel
3. Dior Homme Intense
4. Dior Homme

Allure Homme Sport, no doubt.
my current top five (always in transition)
Dior Eau Noire
HdP 1725 Casanova
eau de gloire parfum d'empire
Dia man Amouage
comme des garçons man 2
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.
Chanel Allure Homme Sport or Bleu.
The only one I don't care for is Blanche which I find disgusting.

Out of these 3, Blanche. But best summer Chanel is surely between Eau de Cologne and Pour Monsieur
Edition Blanche is the winner!
Well actually I'd go with Cristalle EdT, but if you're insistent on citrus-heavy then Eau de Cologne.
"Best Summer Chanel"
Bel Respiro, of course!

What about Cologne Sport! Super lemons with a woodsy base cant be wrong in the summer! I love the stuff!
blanche is by far the most interesting of the 3 imo.
Blanche by far
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 need Allure Sport Light
Tested Blanche again. Really liking it. I prefer lemons over oranges so there you go. Blanche > Sport. Just a cleaner, crisper scent.
This is like choosing between Kevin James, David Spade and Rob Schneider.
Allure Homme Blanche would be my choice.
1) Edition Blanche
3) Sport (Wasn't for me at all. Too cloying.)

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!!
bleu. maybe i was expecting a lot from edition blanche though because of the praise it gets here.

I still cant figure it out...I think Ill wait for Issey Summer Edition For a Designer Summer Frag.
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?
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
EB> sport cologne > bleu > homme sport
...summer or winter, for me the best 'normal' Chanel is 'Antaeus': the best from 'Les Exclusifs' are for me 'Sycomore' and 'Coromandel'...
Edition Blanche for me.
My current top 10 (with no particular order):
Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
Dior Homme Intense
Costume National Scent Intense
Terre d'Hermes EDT
CK Eternity for Men
YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme (Old Tin Can)
Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
Costume National Homme
From this specific selection: Bleu.
1st choice: Bleu de Chanel
2nd Choice: Edition Blanche
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.
