IMO its not that the Allure line is bad as such more that it is there to please the mass market. I liked the original Allure Homme and bought it but it never got that many outings. AHS is the real big hitter of the line and to me is the epitome of "sport" fragrances. I don't like it because it is wayyyyy too loud for my taste. Even the cologne version is pretty tenacious.
I'm not gonna go on more about the line but I think the point is that the last groundbreaking or daring male fragrance from Chanel was Egoiste.
But this pleases the snobs like us and everything for men since has been aimed at a mass market which is why the majority of guys on this forum start bad mouthing Chanel men's fragrances before even smelling them.
It's the nature of the forum that we tend to rebel against the mainstream.
