    Default Which of the 3?

    Hi everyone I was wondering which fragrance is the better blind buy and compliment getter I am thinking of buying either Bleu de chanel, Allure homme sport, or one million. Im 17 if it matters and in high school I will be using them in class so I don't want suffocate anyone. Also which one do you think is worth the full price their asking for the cologne I can't sample because the store near me doesn't carry either. Thanks again.

    The only one I own is 1 Million (currently wearing it) and I thoroughly enjoy it. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the three. They're all great compliment getters. If your main goal is to get compliments, all three will work. But if you want a great scent because you want to enjoy how you smell, I'd skip all three to be honest.

    Don't get me wrong, I still like 1 Million very much. It just could never be a signature scent for me.

    I say go with Bleu de Chanel. It's a great fragrance and is subtle enough for class. You'd probably also stick out a bit more as it's a bit more classy than the other two, IMO.

    From your list, I'd pick Bleu de Chanel -- clean, fresh, and inoffensive.

    +1.
    Even if you decide not to go with Bleu de Chanel, don't go with 1 Million, not for class at least IMO.

    One million is warmer-sweeter, the other two are fresher and more citric. So in a way it depends on what you want, warm or fresh. But as others were saying, One million is potent and not really suitable for a crowded class, if not in minute doses. Between the other two, I'd also vote for Bleu, I find Allure too sharp. Still, Bleu is safe, and certainly pleasing, but somewhat uninspiring.

    Stay away from 1 million in the classroom. I would go with Bleu!

    1 Million is probably more of a compliment getter, simply because it gets noticed more. However, Bleu will work just as well. I can almost guarantee you will be reaching for Bleu more often than 1 million

    1 Million by Paco Rabanne is excellent for clubbing, while Allure Homme Sport by Chanel is a great, summer scent. But, Bleu de Chanel by Chanel is an an all-season scent thriving in spring, summer and fall, and will serve you well in the classroom environment.

    1 Million is my answer for a 17 year old.

    Because you are 17 and probably love to go clubbing/partying, I would recommend one million so that you can always be surrounded by one million's scent bubble. However, if you wish to be different and more classy than your average 17 year old male, than I'd go with Blue de Chanel.

    Agree, word by word...
