    It's on the USA website now. http://www.chanel.com/en_US/fragranc...C3%8AME-125540

    Nordstrom still doesn't know exactly when they'll get it. Darn shame.

    For those who OWN a decant/bottle of Sport Extreme and and original Sport, which do you prefer and why?

    I completely agree. Pretty much all of the minty fragrances I've tried have been nauseating, which doesn't bode well for this one. However, I do enjoy Chanel fragrances so who knows.

    I wasn't really impressed by this Eau Extreme. It is typical "intense" version of the regular fragrance with a big amount of tonka beans and something balsamic (like balsamic notes in Blv Notte and Cerruti Si). Unfortunately I didn't identify any mint here. The base seems to be similar to that in original Allure Homme Sport. So nothing really new or special - I like Bleu more.

    I only have a 2ml sample of Eau Extreme but I am pretty confident that I prefer AHS in almost every capacity.

    I'm not as prepared with disappointment as AHS was great, it's extreme version might be awesome

    Goddamnit another flanker of allure I'll probably end up buying. I love the original and edition blanche and liked sport, so if this is sport with a little more punch I'll probably love it too. That being said I'm scared of the mint note. Mint scents simply do not do well on my skin, they come off like toothpaste. Ever Roadster took the colgate route on me. Oddly the only scent with any mint in it that I've ever liked was YSL Live Jazz, so I wonder how the mint compares to that?

    How can this fragrance be inspired by Surfing and not contain any "Ocean air/mist" or a salty note and is instead dominated by tonka beans ? makes no sense. I can see salty notes working really well with the mint, orange and woods.

    Original Hands down!
    eau extreme is generic and only , as a distinctive contribution, has a slightly sweet and ambery background that adds some warmth to the ensemble, but the citrus smell of opening is the epitome of the generic and boring.-I don´t either identify any mint here
    at least, the original has more class.

    Hmmm, more generic than Allure Sport. Its possible?
    Allure Sport smells like a deodorant.

    Absolutely agree. Don't like the new version, find it boring and uncomplex. And no mint here.

    Bummer they didn't have a 150ml bottle. 100ml was the biggest they had.

    I have to agree with Blackened and Anton, I'm afraid. It's an interesting variation on the Allure theme, but it's going to be the favorite only of people who prefer something simple and "less extreme" than either the original Allure Homme or Blanche. To me, there is a gradation between the woody/spicy accords in Allure Homme and the powdery/citrus accords in Edition Blanche. Sport Extreme is closer to Allure Homme than Sport is, but it retains much of the simplicity of Sport. I really appreciate the complexity of base and overall balance of both Allure Homme and Bleu now.

    Here is a crude representation of competing aspects in the Allure Homme/Bleu family, at least as they smell to me:

    Woody/Spicy|-----AH--------------------------------------|Powdery
    ---------------------------AHSEE-----------------AHEB--------------
    -----------------------------------------AHS--------------------------
    ---------------------------Bleu----------------------------------------
    Fresh/Marine|-----------------------------------AHSCS------|Citrus

    I enjoy the novelty of the new one, but I think this is Allure for a generation which finds the original Allure Homme either dated or overly formal, and Sport/Blanche too clean-cut. The fashion seems like it's swinging back toward something like Allure Homme, but it's not there yet.

    If you like the creamy citrus of Allure Homme Sport, then beware, because that is much reduced here. In its place, the warm and woody cypress accord, which is good in its own right. There is no obvious mint, but I suspect that it sharpens and "Chanellifies" the cypress, which doesn't smell very "Polo" or "Italian Cypress", as a word of warning to fans of those scents.

    Still, the stuff smells very good. Better on skin than on paper - it's warmer and more satisfying. It also really contrasts with Bleu. Comparing the two, the fresh/marine notes of Bleu are *really* obvious.

    I bought a bottle today. Fab stuff!

    Like stated before, it's closer to the original Allure Homme than the Sport.
    But, it is like a fusion between the two with a touch of Givency Play Intense
    untop of that. Absolutely fabulous!
    It hit the Danish boutiques yesterday, I'd reckon y'all will see it the next time
    you visit one!

    It has nothing on the Édition Blanche, though. That is still the ruling Allure
    in my book!


    Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

    Like the others. It is an Eau de Toilette Concentrée, though.
    On me Édition Blanche has killer longevity - and sillage. ÉB
    is really a concentrée.
    The rest are kinda avaridge, same goes with this one.
    I've had it on for 6 hours now (6 sprays!), still there, but, faint!

    Hmmm, sounds not that boring. I do like the original Allure, but the others i hate (except blanche, but it has no sillage for me, and the cologne sport, that im going to receive in a swap)
