    Default Dior Homme Sport (2012) or Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    Hey,

    So which one would you guys think gets more compliments? Dior Homme Sport (2012) or Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    I like scents that project but aren't to heavy. As much as I like the Allure Homme, after an hour I want to wash it off. I do like scents that last 8-10hrs, which is asking a lot for a fresh or sports scent, but these two are power houses.

    I picked up Allure Homme Edition Blanche yesterday because well, I won't be able to again since its discontinued—I do like the smell...ugh I hate this scent obsession...I've gone from 1 to 12 in a year..taking my time to enjoy each scent.

    Should I keep Blanche or exchange it for Dior sport 2012? I would buy both but saving up for something else...

    Thank you!

    Well can't speak about compliments cause I don't own these two, but I have sampled these and consider neither to be a powerhouse (maybe the original Dior Homme Sport which lasts quite a bit longer and also prefer it to both of these).

    Sorry, I meant powerhouse in terms of summer fragrances, along with AHS.

    Allure Homme Edition Blanche - my guess

    I'm not sure about compliments, but I sprayed DHS and my girlfriend loved it. I personally couldn't stand the ginger in it.

    I would think that Edition Blanche would be just as good on compliments, but to me it's a much better scent, and no need to own both, they share the same purpose in my mind.

    Actually wearing EB today and it's very nice.

    I'd choose the Dior.

    A sport frag that's actually semi-interesting is a rarity. Edition Blanche is a good fragrance too, but gets cloying and makes me ill. You couldn't go wrong with either though.

    I guess Allure gets more compliments. My choice would be DHS new formulation, not the older one.

    Edition Blanche isn't discontinued, it's on Chanel's site. They just don't keep the department store shelves stocked with it for some reason.

    I choose EB over the 2 scents but both are great!

    Keep Allure EB. I just sampled DHS 2012 today and it is really light and I feel like someone cuted away 1 of my balls. It is sad but I still didnt find summer fragrance that would be better balanced than Acqua Di Gio (not too sweet, not too sour, not too linear, not too feminine).

    I love Dior Homme and Dior Homme Intense, but don't care for the Sport edition.

    I don't own, but quite like Edition Blanche.

    I got both of them in June. Worn them back to back for 2 months. I'd go with Dior Homme Sport. It just feels a bit higher end for a "sport" fragrance.
    Top 5
    1. Gucci PH2
    2. Aventus
    3. Hermes Un Jardin Méditerranée
    4. Creed GIT
    5. Dior Homme/Intense

    DHS 2012 is watered down version of DH. I don't like it.

    If you want a summer scent, I find vintage DHS better than new DHS.
    If you want an iris-based scent, I find DH to be 100x better than new DHS.

    Both are quite likely as compliment getters:

    But should you like a casual, sporty male floral scent, Dior Homme Sport is the choice
    While Allure Homme Edition Blanche has more citrus too it.

    Settle on the notes which you like more between the two and simply wear any if you like it.

    I prefer EB but it's totally up to you.
