    Default Allure Homme Sport

    I've had this for a while but just pulled it out of my closet and started to wear it again. Strangely, I think it performs better in cooler weather. It's actually not bad at all; very solid fresh scent. It's garnered the most compliments out of anything I wear, which is mostly GIT and Aventus.

    Yeah, it's a solid frag, and situationally versatile.

    One of the better sport scents IMO.

    I'd agree...I especially prefer the Extreme version in cooler weather as an "active wear" frag & I think my wife actually likes it better than Aventus on me, too!

    My gosh! I wish I could AHS to smell nice on me. On paper, it smells perfectly fine. On my skin, it smells like lemons and pepper (extremely harsh). I will try it again tomorrow...

    I think it would be good for a sport frag if it didn't have that weird harsh note that many complain about.
    As it is I don't wear it and think it is the first Chanel male frag that is really sub standard

    I'm sorry but I just don't get the hype with this scent. I was given two samples by a SA at an airport earlier this month and I duly threw them in the bin. A very light but "powdery" scent in a way that I found irritating. Not natural smelling at all and nauseating at times.

    I love Edition Blanche. Some complain about the longevity, but it lasts longer on me than almost any other citrus fragrance I own.

    And as far as Allure Homme Sport: I own and love this one also. Lot of compliments, fresh, clean, and long lasting. Great stuff!

    I doubt this will last more than 3 hours on me during the colder weather, I get bad performance from it even during the summer. Unfortunate, cause this is one of the better smelling citruses.

    Nice fragrance but too strong for hot weather.

    I find it works very well in spring/cooler summer days for me. It's kinda synthetic, especially in the beggining with all the orange/aldehydes thing but overall it's a great casual scent. It probably works almost any season but for colder months there is def much better scents out there.

    I dare say Allure Homme Sport by Chanel is one of best, overall, summer fragrances - 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.

    I love Edition Blanche. It has such a true lemon scent. But it is hardly detectable on my skin. That simply breaks my heart because I do enjoy it so.

    Didn't find this to be the case at all. Wore it a few times during the summer in Vegas, which is some of the hottest weather there is.
