    Default Best Chanel Fragrance

    What is the best chanel fragrace for a younger person. It should be under $100 a bottle and an 18 year old can wear it.

    As usual, it depends on the budget. My favorite fresh Chanel is Sycomore, a very fresh and natural vetiver; but it only comes in the exclusif collection, available only at Chanel boutiques and pretty expensive.

    Among mainstream Chanel, I'd go for Egoiste (the plain one, not Platinum Egoiste), which is very smooth, elegant, sandalwoody, though not especially fresh.

    Edit : Totally misread the question, sorry! For a young person, I suppose AHS is OK, but Allure itself would be better...

    Well I'm 21 so here's a younger dude's opinion. I like Allure Pour Homme the most, and the only one I'd actually buy potentially (it smells alluring and sexy)....the others ones I am indifferent to hate...Bleu is nice but meh honestly feels ordinary but still pleasant though...Platinum Egoiste is decent fresher scent...Edition Blanche is a good lemon, but I see Dior Homme Sport as a better alternative (not to mention more potent), Allure Sport my nose finds very weak...Egoiste I dislike since it's a bit old fashioned to my taste...the other ones I haven't tried.....

    Allure Homme Sport - I daresay it is one of best, overall, summer fragrances. It's a fantastic journey from its sharp, orange, citrus opening, through its imaginative, peppery, neroli and cedar heart, thence morphing into its exquisite, creamy and sexy, white musk and vetiver base.

    By no means anywhere near the "best" which Chanel has to offer, but for your age group/needs I think you're better sticking to something safe, such as Allure or Platinum Egoiste (Although Egoiste is vastly superior).

    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche - most natural lemon scent I have ever smelled, it has a creamy and sharp pepper vibe to it as well. Really well blended fragrance

    No idea, since I like the "mature" frags of Chanel most. But among the more recent scents of Chanel, I'd recommend Bleu.

    Own all three, like all three. Flip a coin, they're all good versatile frags for a young dude. If you wanna set yourself apart from the crowd, Platinum Egoiste; Bleu and AHS are Chanel's biggest selling mens frags, so take that for what it's worth.

    I personally think that there are better options outside of the Chanel house
    However, If you have to choose then Bleu de Chanel. AHS is too generic and Platinum Egoiste is too dated smelling

    The ones you listed I consider to be the worst from Chanel. I would pick Egoiste because you are never to young for a touch of class.

    Pour Monsieur Concentree is very similar to Tiffany for Men, which means its very similar to a masterpiece.

    If you don't have a Tiffany's nearby, PM Concentree is the next best thing.

    Those you listed are the worst of the bunch...

    Instead, try Egoiste (not the Platinum version), Bois des Iles, and Coromandel.

    Default Re: Best Chanel Fragrance

    Out of the three you mentioned I would say flip a coin.

    However, for th really nice Chanel scents you need to spend a litttle more, but it is worth it. Coromandel is the top of my list, but Sycomore, Bois de Iles and Cuir Russie are extremely good scents. I strongly recommend that you consider one of these 4 scents.
    Five that I am enjoying right now

    1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
    2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
    4) Devin by Aramis
    5) Coromandel by Chanel

    Going off of the actual smell and not popularity on BN, I'm going to have to recommend this for a younger person. Any person for that matter.

    5. Preferred Stock

    I'm sorry but I'm not a fan of any in your list. That being said, if forced to choose one I'd probably go for Bleu.

    The three that i listed were some suggestions. I do not HAVE to choose one of those three . I am just looking for a bottle that would suit a guy under 20 and costs under $100.

    That makes it easier then... Chanel pour Monsieur. There may not be many under 20 year-old people wearing it, but that is a shame as it is good on anyone.

    Egoiste is great, IMO. If by chance you don't love it on first sniff, try it a few more times before deciding. It's not like the aquatics or sport frags that get marketed so heavily to your age group. I hope you enjoy it.

    I am 19 and I own Chanel Egoiste. At first I thought it was a bit too mature for my age but I guess it depends how you are feeling on the day. I have found that women my age seem to like it as well. So I think Chanel Egoiste is great for young guys who want to look a bit more sophisticated.

    As for the best smelling Chanel fragrance then I have not tried everything but Sycomore is definitely a good one to try !
