    Default Gucci PH 2 or Chanel Allure Sport

    Hi All,

    I have been collecting frags since about 2009 and here is my collection so far.

    Rive gauche
    Paco rabonne xs
    M7
    Azzaro visit
    Azzaro chrome
    A men
    Burberry Brit
    Blvgari ph
    Vera Wang for men
    Gucci pome
    YSL live jazz
    Versace pour homme
    Lacoste essential
    Acqua di gio
    CK obsession
    YSL l'homme
    Escada magnetism
    L eau dissey
    Blvgari black
    Azzaro pour homme
    Givenchy PI
    Versace the Dreamer

    So I am looking to pick up a new frag and was either thinking about Gucci PH 2 or Chanel Allure Sport. Based on what I've read so far, I have been considering Gucci PH 2 over Allure Sport. Do you think this would be a good decision? Any other fragrances that you could suggest? I tend to stay away from niche and stick only to designers, as you could tell.

    Looking forward to your response!

    I would choose GPH II out of the two as well.

    Have both. Love both. But Gucci PH II is just miles ahead in my eyes, or nose rather. Such an addicting ,calming,amazing smell. Not only am i suggesting that you choose Gucci PH II, but i am telling you to!!!! You wont regret it. No collection would be complete without ph II

    I like both scents, and I don't think you'll go wrong either way. But I would also probably recommend picking up Gucci Pour Homme II first. There are rumours that it may be discontinued (along with GPHI), so definintely grab a bottle while it's easy to find. Chanel Allure Homme Sport will be around forever, so you can buy it easily later. Also, I see that you already have Versace Pour Homme in your collection. Chanel Allure Homme Sport is very similar, and honestly, I really like the Versace better myself. But if you enjoy your Versace Pour Homme, you'll definintely like Chanel Allure Homme Sport (same vibe, except a bit less aquatic with a slightly sweeter base).

    Thanks for the replies. I'll pick up some Gucci PH2. I hope they don't discontinue it. Is it true they discontinued m7 and rive gauche?

    Man that's a shame. I love M7. Is there a big difference in Oud Absolu?

    Went to the mall today. Stopped at Macy's and perfumeland. Asked for Gucci PH two. They both said they do not have it and it's hard to get. So I ordered some online.

    Looks to me that you already have some citrusy aquatic frags,

    but as far as i know i cant tell if any of your others are tea based which Gucci PH is.

    if you enjoy the tea note in the gucci then pick that up,allure homme sport is excellent but not the most unique beautiful scent out there so i would go with gucci

    cheers

    You have Versace pour homme, which is very similar to Allure Sport ... So automatically GPII.

    Good choice. GPH II has character which AHS lacks.

    I remember back in the day I posted for some help for choosing between GPH II and another fragrance. I don't remember that other one. Its probably for the better. GPHII won that one. I'm so happy for choosing GPH II. I ALWAYS get compliments from women. Go with the GPH II.

    Sadly yes, M7 Oud Absolute is miles away from M7. OA to me smells like the very late dry down of M7, much weaker and without some of the notes that made M7 so rich and unique.

    My friends, I would like to retract my earlier vote of AHS instead for Gucci PH ii. After revisiting this scent tonight as well as AHS I thought there was no comparison, and given there was only one PH ii left - and rumors that it will be discontinued whilst being continually harder to find - I had to snag the last 100ml box of it and leave AHS for another day, maybe.

    @ Winterbourne ° - I think that was a wise move. Enjoy!
