    On the paper slip, it appeared to be quite different than any of the Allures. I could be mistaken though since I was also smelling quite a few other fragrances.

    Bought this one blind as a bat.
    Just got it via UPS this morning and
    wore it as my SOTD, and I really like it...a lot.

    I don't think I'm going out on too much of a limb
    by saying it's the best fragrance in the Allure line so far.
    It is similar to Allure Homme Sport, but a bit darker and richer
    with more mint and pepper.

    Longevity--as always with Chanel--is outstanding.
    Projects really well for the first couple of hours,
    then gets closer to the skin, but still noticeable later.
    Longevity is a solid 8 hours. And projection overall
    is just right. Not too loud, but you will be noticed.

    This would make an excellent, year-round signature scent.
    I will be wearing it quite a bit this summer and into the fall/winter.
    It was 86 degrees Fahrenheit here today, and it wasn't too sweet
    or rich in the warm weather.

    Initial rating: 8.5/10

    Big thumbs up from me.

    Excellent, excellent review. You spoke for me and exactly how I feel.

    I'm wondering if some commenting on this with negative comments have actually tried/smelled the fragrance, or if they're simply trying to be fashion critic snobs and are being critical just for the sake of being critical (especially since this one has the potential to be a fairly "popular" and mainstream fragrance).

    I also find it funny when someone refers to a scent having an "old man" smell. In the case of this fragrance, it doesn't smell like an "old man" at all. Not even close. What the Hell is an "old man" smell anyway? Maybe we've got some 13 year old here writing reviews (which, to a 13 year old, someone in their 20's is an "old man" - LOL)

    I tested it on paper and I didn't even care to test it on my skin.

    This fragrance was released in Harrods on Monday. Didn't get a chance to sniff the juice though because I was there on Sunday. The lady at the counter said it isn't as nice as the original Chanel Allure sport though

    They usually do it the other way around: tell you a crappy frag is great!
    Therefore I would assume in this case that it's great. (Which I think it is, haha!)
