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.
