Smells like a deodorant
So I recently just picked up AHS and its my first day wearing it. It seems to remind me of Acqua Di Gio mixed with AH... not what I was expecting from the time I tested it few weeks back.
It was between this and Dior Sport or homme...now I'm thinking of going to exchange it; but I know its the new reformulated smell...which is getting mixed reviews. It smelled good to me, very classy but I didnt test projection or longevity.
I really enjoy scent that smell fresh but not soapy or powdery. DnG pour homme I think has that nice clean smell but the new formulation is super weak...
or another option is to just stick with YSL 'Homme...
What do yah guys think? Any guidance?

It's OK but nothing special IMO.
Not a fan of AHS, but L'Homme by YSL is a nice scent: fresh, clean, sweet, inoffensive.
I enjoy it, doesn't last on me though. I think Dior Homme Sport is a better alternative, as with Allure Extreme
The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Want to buy! "Nothing?!, well that's a first."
Similarities with ADG, Dior Homme sport may be due to the airy, soapy, light, translucent citrus notes.
I know it's been said a lot, but Allure Homme Sport is very similar to Versace Pour Homme. But, even though it's cheaper, I honestly think Versace Pour Homme is better. It's got that same sweet basenote from the tonka & clary sage, but it remains less sweet & fresher than AHS. To me, it's even more versatile than AHS and works well in all seasons.

"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
Allure Homme Sport = (Versace PH - Acqua Di Gio part (read drydown) of Versace PH) + sweet Chanel Allure basenotes.
Versace PH = [(Allure Homme Sport - Allure drydown) + Acqua Di Gio drydown] * 0,7 of sophistication of both mentioned frags

Stay with AHS- girls love it- and buy a bottle of the new DHS.
If you must wear a sport scent, the newest DHS formulation is supposedly the thing to get. I'm not a sport frag fan, but if I were to be force fed broken glass or wear a sport frag, I'd definitely not opt for the Chanel.
Smells like Geir by Geir Ness but not as good
