    Cool New Chanel: Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme

    "Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme Eau de Toilette concentrée
    (not before 01.03.2012)" http://www.heinemann-dutyfree.com/be...-51909670.html

    Perhaps a March 1st 2012 release?

    Thanks to Oslo and Cylob for exploring the Chanel website in Russian, here's the official Chanel info: Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme [on Russian Chanel Site]

    Notes: Fresh mint, Sicilian mandarin, cypress, white musc, tonka bean, cedar, sandalwood and black pepper gives the scent a "warm aroma"

    I wonder if its going to be an "extreme" version of the Sport EDC lemonade scent or if they are trying to offer a variation of the current Sport EDT.

    It`s now introduced at www.chanel.com -But only with the Russian language.. :-) It`s supposed to be more aromatic and spicy than the reguler, with a hint of musc. Notes: Fresh mint, Sicilian mandarin, cypress, white musc, tonka bean, cedar, sandalwood and black pepper gives the scent a "warm aroma" :-) The Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow is the director of the new advertising video, and the actor is the Hawaiian surfer Danny Fuller.

    Definite pass from me. Sport (ie weak) and extreme/concentre is an oxymoron.

    Interesting! I think it's a flanker of AHS, not AHS Cologne.

    I'm not a fan of the Allure line at all, but I will definitely test this when I see it in person.
    Current top 3:
    1) Gucci Pour Homme II
    2) Givenchy Play Intense
    3) Dolce & Gabbana The One

    I usually avoid anything with "sport" in its name, but the sentence "Warm aroma" makes it sound a bit more intresting. I like the regular Allure homme and Edition Blanche very much, so I will give this one a try.

    The first who tried this in Chanel School in Moscow say it is not really similar to the regular AHS. It is rather sweet for a sporty fragrance and has a notable note of tonka beans. They also say it's much, much better and interesting than Bleu de Chanel.

    That not means much. Even Axe deodorants are more interesting than Blah de Chanel.


    But sweet, peppermint, tonka...Im interested in this one.

    I figured that after Bleu, just MAYBE they would give us a classic masculine. HA!

    I guess that must have been Jersey.

    The saddest part is that Chanel totally has my number, and I'll undoubtedly love it in terrible shame. *sigh*

    You won't be alone

    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...

    http://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/fa...hanel_1_488375

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
