    Default Ahhhhh Allure Homme - Did I Make The Wrong Choice?

    So something like 2 months ago I made my first big purchase - Allure Homme Sport.

    With it, I received a very nice sample of Allure Homme (with a sprayer!). Anyways, for some reason, I decided to put it in my pocket before school today (I didn't put on anything). (Oh, and I'm in high school) About halfway through the day, on my way to lab, I decided to give it a spray on the neck when there was no one near me. Mannnn did/do I love it! It smelled so clean and crisp, yet still having that refinement and kick of Chanel. I didn't get any direct compliments, but the girl in front of me during lab seemed to turn around to ask questions way more than usual

    I just took a whiff of my Allure Homme Sport, and it feels pale in comparison right now.

    Did I make the wrong choice with Allure Homme Sport? I've been wearing it almost every day for quite some time, so maybe this enthusiasm is just because of having something a little different? I suppose I could see the same thing happening with Allure. Either way, it's been about 6 or 7 hours and I couldn't really smell it too well anymore so I just did another spray for the heck of it

    Allure homme and AHS are both good. I bought AHS for the hotter months where I live. Allure homme is a timeless classic, but I prefer it during the cooler days.

    Sounds like you just have good taste to me.

    It takes time to sort these things out. I no longer think there are easy, quick answers in this hobby. My guess here is that your ability to appreciate complexity in frags may have developed a bit from the time you made the purchase.

    Allure Homme > Allure Homme Sport. But don't fret, you have an easy to wear all weather fragrance, so that's a good thing. I know I couldn't wear AH in the summer.

    Platinum < Blanche = Bleu = Sport < Allure < Antaeus < Egoiste.

    Youre going into the right way!

    Allure Homme Sport is an amazing fragrance, in fact, I like Sport more than Allure Homme.
    AHS is a sexy and very masculine scent. Regular Allure is more unisex IMO

    Yes. But then, if you've been wearing the same thing every day for quite some time, olfactory fatigue has probably set in. Personally, l find that if l wear the same fragrance for more than about 5 days at a time, l stop noticing it & lose interest in it. This can be avoided by having a choice of things to wear, so if you can afford it, go buy that bottle of AH!

    AHS is lovely for the summer. A high quality fresh scent. AH is better placed in cooler seasons or for nighttime I think. They're both lovely really, but AH is gorgeous.

    This will always happen no matter how good you think that one purchase is. There is always another fragrance more attractive or intriguingly 'different'. That's why one of the oft-heard advice here is to 'sample, sample, sample'. Just because you like one scent, it doesn't necessarily mean you'll love all 100ml of it. Sometimes all you need is just the occasional whiff, once every few days. This is something that smaller decants or even miniatures can satisfy.

    I think AHS is a nice summer/after workout fragrance that has enough quality to wear every day. I think you just need to purchase some others to give yourself variation. All fragrances become mundane if worn daily.
