    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 thought the regular Allure Sport has excellent longevity and projection for a summer fragrance.

    2.
    Roja Dove Enigma Parfum Pour Homme
    3. MDCI Chypre Palatin

    Personally when she said Allure I stopped listening. I will not make a major effort to seek this one out.

    Allure Sport Extreme.

    Never thought I'd say this, but I'm starting to regret that Allure Homme was ever made in the first place.

    Then Edition Blache would never have existed

    Oupavoc, you sure know how to damn something with faint praise.

    Kidding, kidding. No, not much wrong with Edition Blanche.

    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.

    Extreme, edition, sport, night, black and blue and bleu usually = run. (But not always.)

    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.

    I will definitely check this one out.
    Allure Homme Sport is the best "sport" fragrance
    by far IMO, so if Chanel have made an "extreme"
    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.
