    Default Dior Homme Sport or Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche?

    Returning my Givenchy Play Intense to Sephora and exchanging it for one of these.

    Which one would you choose?

    This exact discussion took place a week ago: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/305...mer-fragrances

    Go for DHS (from the two at least). The Chanel AEB has terrible, terrible longevity. The smell is alright but nothing great either.
    Top 5 (random order):
    1. Creed Aventus
    2. L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
    3. Le Labo Rose 31
    4. Terre D'Hermes EdT
    5. YSL Rive Gauche

    I'd go for Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    I had some Dior Homme Sport before and I got much more Longevity from Edition Blanche plus the Edition Blanche smells better IMO

    Dior Homme Sport, but only if it's the new formulation - orange-ish juice, not light yellow. Otherwise, Edition Blanche. There are rumors that it's being discontinued, so you'll have a collectors item, if nothing else. DH Sport, original formulation, might eventually become collectible. In the meantime, though, it's pretty harsh stuff - generally, not a lot of love for it around here.

    DHS Original. Love how it smells and get pretty good longevity.
    Edition Blanche smells great too. 0 lasting power.

    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. It lasts on me about 6-7 hours, which I find quite acceptable. I love the smell, but I find I have to be in the right mood to wear it.

    Default Re: Dior Homme Sport or Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche?

    The Sephora here only has Blanche as a tester. I believe all bottles have been sent back to Chanel. They are both over hyped imo but atleast DHS has decent longevity, i like it better too.

    You really have to put your nose to it. We may say Edition Blanche, but what if you'd prefer the Dior? Personally, I can't wear any of the Allure flankers.

    If you like both equally, grab the Edition Blanche. It's supposedly being discontinued, which means less odds of hanging around somebody who's wearing it.

    Dior Homme Sport 2012 (not the original version).

    I once owned Chanel Edition Blanche. I like it....liked the 'creamy vanilla'....but wasn't 'earth shattering' for me.

    Liked (didn't love) Dior Homme Sport (old version) but felt there wasn't enough 'balance' beyond the citrus/ginger

    The new 2012 version has the iris and (to me) more prominent cedar in the base.

    Go for Dior Homme Sport 2012

    I get the opposite in terms of longevity. I get 7-10 hours every time with 4-5 hours of solid projection for Edition Blanche. Overall, one of the longest lasting fresh scents I own.

    EB would be my recommendation based on scent alone as well between these two. I just sold my DHS as I never wear it.

    i have both but for me Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche is better than Dior Homme Sport .

    and for my opinon Edition blanche will be number one summer fragrance if it has more projection but it has a good longvity more than 6 hrs .

    go for Edition Blanche Rizzle

    DHS lasts longer but EB is the superior smelling fragrance.

    I'd buy YSL L'Homme, Gucci Envy, or Carven Homme if I was looking into buying Dior Homme Sport. Edition Blanche does have average projection and longevity, but the creamy lemon opening is awesome.

    Lol. I'll be honest, I didn't know about these rumors either.

    My personal choice would've been to go with the newly reformulated DHS, but nonetheless a solid choice Blanche, and hopefully, Egoiste.

    EB back in stock at the Chanel site. Can not get this anywhere at this time except the Chanel site or stores. Chanel started a few years ago pulling their products back and definitely away from discount stores and sites. To be sure your getting the real Chanel product I would only purchase from their site or stores.

    This is one I have been without almost all summer so I had to rely on my Terre d'Hermes to carry the weight. Yes love them both for a staple in my collection and daily use. With the purchase received a sample of Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme, nice but it smells like Guerlain Homme Intense. GHI I gave away, enjoyed the creamy dry down but something in the mix turned my stomach each time I wore it. The guy I gave it to turns my stomach every time he wears it.

    If you couldn't tell my vote for EB.

    Dior Homme Sport in my opinion

    Default Re: Dior Homme Sport or Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche?

    Have both and wore them back to back during summer. I'd go Dior all day. I do like EB a lot and sometimes I feel it's a better put together fragrance but the pepper texture can sometimes rub me the wrong way in warm weather.The Dior (new reformulation) does exactly what I want from a sport/summer fragrance - in a real classy way.

    I will say that EB SEEMS more versatile but I haven't got round to trying them in colder weather.
    Top 5
    1. Gucci PH2
    2. Aventus
    3. Armani Privé Rose D'arabie
    4. Creed GIT
    5. Dior Homme/Intense

    I don't get you people saying Edition Blanche doesn't last, it sure does on me.
    For me, it's one of those rare scents that actually start projecting a cloud once your skin starts to heat up in the summer.
    Maybe it just reacts differently towards different skin types, but i'm getting at least 8 hours.

    First time i wore it i sniffed my polo shirt the day after, and it smelled amazing some 20 hours later. (no i dont spray clothes)

    I've never gotten as many compliments with any fragrance.

    Edition Blanche by miles. It's my favorite fragrance. Dior Sport is one of my least favorite I've ever tried.

    I couldn't agree more. This is one of the longest-lasting citrus fragrances I have ever had (with the exception of TdH Parfum).

    Both excellent. Though I love ginger so I personally prefer DHS. Haven't smelt the 2012 DHS though.

    If I could, both. Both are quite equally ranked on my list of preferences, no clear bias or predominance between the two.
