    I will buy this one blind if I can't find a sample or test it locally.
    Allure Homme Sport is the best "sport" fragrance by far IMO, and the notes in this
    Eau Extreme version sound interesting to say the least.

    We can start our meeting of Cocoholics Anonymous!

    So it really IS going for an "extreme sports" angle - surfing. Check out the comments here:

    And - BTW - found a nice, old interview with Polge...

    I'm just a sucker for either Polge. I'm already loving Spicebomb, and I have no doubt that I'll love this. It will be interesting to see how this compares with the other "surfing homage" fragrance, Quiksilver.

    got a sample of this,not my cup of tea. the mint is menthol like someone added vicks vapor rub to the topnotes of allure homme sport.

    Sounds interesting, but I'm afraiding of that it is one disappoint again from Chanel just like Bleu and most of Allure flankers...

    Sampled it today. Opened just like AHS but with a lot of tonka beans and woody notes (vetiver?) added.
    Really love it, but I think most of the people who didn't like the original AHS won't be into this either.
    I'll buy it for sure, but hey: I'm a Chanel junkie!

    I'm a Chanel fan, will most likely buy this one just based off the notes and the fact that my AHS is running low...

    I despise minty scents, so I doubt this one will do much for me.

    I got the same 'orange' opening of the original that was immediately 'rounded' by tonka bean, which I really loved. Didn't get any of the minty toothpaste notes that others mention. All and all it's quite simular, but warmer and deeper than the original AHS.

    From your description its quite well done actually. I would want a warmer version of AHS though. Do you see it as a versatile frag or more of a night time kind if frag?

    I´m scared about recent launches of sport fragrances. However, I like a lot Allure Homme and if I see this flanker, I´ll try it. It´s difficult to make a fragrance more generic and expensive than Bleu.

    I looked for this at the mall on Saturday (Texas) and no luck. Not at Sephoras either.

    Didn't care for the original. If I see this one somewhere I might try it.

    Very versatile. I would certainly wear it to work (I'm a video-editor working in small editsuites with a director within a meter range).
    But it would also work as a nighttime fragrance for sure. I would wear it to bed even.

    This seems to follow the trend of fresh+spicy gourmand such as CK One Shlock...

    Don't most retailers get shipments in on Tuesdays or Thursdays? If Chanel is doing an Apple type of release, where it just shows up one day without any definitive release date, I'm hoping it's this Thursday, March 1st. Nordstrom's rep told me their source says March 2012, but no specific date.

    From those who smelt this, is the orange toned down a bit? I like AHS, but sometimes the orange was a little too much for me...too much of a melting orange flavored Creamsicle smell.
