    Sports and extreme are two of the most dangerous words in perfumery (variations of "blue" are another, but they used that last year); together with Allure, one can only imagine. But next year, I imagine they'll come up with Blue sport fraicheur.

    I much prefer Allure Homme and Edition Blanche thee days and wear them both. As for Extreme, I am hoping for the best, you how Chanel rolls and it cant be a bad as Bleu, not possible.

    I wasn't fond of Bleu, but didn't think it was that bad. Definitely not ground-breaking, though. For whatever reason it seemed reviewers hated it long before they even tried it.

    Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport is still my favorite, by far, from the Allure line. Love the bright lemon opening & soapy/white musk drydown. This one rates right up there with Mugler Cologne among my favorite hot weather, fresh scents.

    I agree - that's one flanker flanker flanker I love. It ranks right up there with some very pricey bergamot scents, IMO.

    Allure Homme Sport is the best "sport" fragrance

    version, it's definitely worth a look.

    I am bit suprised that they didnt jump on bandwagon with Bleu De Chanel Sport but Allure Homme Sport Extreme sounds equally bad.
    TOP 5 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Aventus
    4. Creed Millesime Imperial
    5. Azzaro Chrome Sport

    Chanel please bring back Egoiste Cologne Concentree and stop flanking and squeezing every drop out of Allure... If Chanel want to release another fragrance, why not release a totally new fragrance... Something new and revolutionary... But I guess it won't sell, because many people are afraid to change from the Aqua Di Gio type of fragrance... Oh well, I'm glad there's Amouage, Serge Lutens, and many daring fragrance house out there...
    My Top 10

    1. Amouage Homage Attar
    2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
    3. YSL M7
    4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
    5. Chanel Egoiste
    6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
    7. Amouage Epic Man
    8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
    10. Serge Lutens - Chergui

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Anyway, with Dior and Guerlain releasing their Hommes, I was waiting for Chanel to do the same. Instead of the sport version, I hoped for an intense version of the Allure Homme.

    Love the bottle, though, and as a fan of the sport flanker, I am anxious to test this out

    I like AHS, but the longevity is not great. I am looking forward to try this intense version.

    But the name is such a paradox. How can something be sporty, but also intense ?

    Well, the original Allure sport was marketed more towards golfers, tennis players, basketball players, etc. This one will be marketed towards mountain bikers, snowboarders, base jumpers, etc. I've heard Sean White is fronting the advertisements.

    Translated notes from http://www.loff.it/2011/12/26/el-perfume-de-la-hazana/

    "That is the anatomy of the renovated Eau Extreme Allure Homme Sport by Chanel, from the black pepper from Madagascar after the aromatic mint, tangerine and cypress Moroccan Sicilian, white musks, cottony, velvety and subtly animals bring us closer to the intensity the nutty tonka bean and sandalwood. A musky perfume, fresh and aromatic, slightly spicy amadreado whose maximum is the origin of 'impulse' that pushes man to action."

    Thanks for the translation.

    So it is a Fresh-Aromatic-Slightly Spicy fragrance with the notes of
    - Black Pepper
    - Mint
    - Tangerine
    - Cypress
    - Moroccan Sicilian Lemon
    - White Musk
    - Tonka Bean
    - Sandalwood
    The notes seems promising.
