    Default What Chanel is the best for which occasion?

    Hi all.

    I am wondering what your opion is about the house of Chanel, and which one you pick for what occasion

    If you pick Bleu the Chanell,no problem but please suggest an other one because I already own that one, I am looking for something new. Never had something else from Chanel. I am 27 if that matters

    Best Chanel for: ( And please tell me why)

    1. The office

    2. A date

    3. A hot day in the city/summer scent

    4. Colder days/winter scent

    5. Best all year round/allrounder?

    1. Sycomore: fresh, clean, long lasting, but at the same time with some complexity and elegance from the woody background

    2. Egoiste: smoothest, warm, pleasing. Ideally, I'd suggest Cuir de Russie in parfum, but it's very expensive.

    3. Sycomore: a favorite especially in DC's hot summer. See above.

    4. Coromandel: patchouli amber, very rich and warm.

    5. Antaeus: classical masculine, spicy, but not sweet.

    1. The office - Platinum Egoiste, it's very classy

    2. A date - Egoiste, the basenotes of Vanilla and Sandalwood are very date friendly

    3. A hot day in the city/summer scent - Allure Homme Sport, as per the name and intention

    4. Colder days/winter scent - Allure Homme, a little dark with great longevity

    5. Best all year round/allrounder? Platinum Egoiste, extremely versatile it can probably do the 4 above with the appropriate amount of sprays
    Top 5:

    1. Chanel - Platinum Egoiste
    2. Creed - Millesime Imperial
    3. Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    4. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    5. Bond No. 9 - Signature

    Platinum Egoiste for all occasions. I love No. 19 but in the dry down can get a bit old woman like.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    The only Chanels I'd rate highly are Bleu de Chanel and Allure Homme. They possess the necessary lasting power and good scent to warrant attention. I feel that Egoiste is outdated, Platinum Egoiste is just fresh and masculine without wow factor, Blanche is weak, Allure Homme Sport is even weaker, Allure Homme Sport Wau Extreme is nice but misleading and in its true category is outclassed by numerous contenders.


    Therefore, only BDC and AH remain and they are great, and very versatile. Not cloying, last, inoffensive (office appropriate), sexy (date appropriate) and all year wearable.

    1.) The office - chanel pour monsieur or concentree version of the same.

    2.) A date - Allure Homme, Allure Homme Sport au extreme or Egoiste (very lightly applied, even the reformulated version can kick a bit too loud)

    3.) Hot day in the city - Bleu De Chanel, Allure Homme Sport also a hot night in the city

    4.) A colder day scent - definitely Egoiste

    5.) A whole year rounder - Allure Homme

    I'm pretty familiar with the ... "pedestrian"...? Line of chanels: so basically The Allure + flankers, Egoiste, and Platinum Egoiste. I havent smelled Antaeus, but my guess is that, along with Egoiste, they are the two more polarizing scents(I like Egoiste for what its worth), and the only two I would say that may not work everywhere(really hot weather i'd say). The others, Platinum Egoiste and the whole Allure line really, seemed made to be worn to pretty much anywhere, with regular Allure Homme being slightly sweeter and maybe more date friendly, and the other four or so fresher and slightly more appropriate elsewhere. note the slightly.
