    Default Chanel Bleu or Allure Homme?

    Hello Friends,

    I am trying to update my fragrance collection and thinking whether I should add Bleu De Chanel or Allure Homme. Which one would be a better choice? Thanks!

    I recommend that you create a poll for such threads where people can vote and you can see a clear result, just saying.

    But i pick Allure Homme, Bleu is very nice but Allure Homme is a classic.
    Current top 5:
    1. MDCI Chypre Palatin
    2. Guerlain Arsene Lupin (Dandy)

    3. Roja Dove Enigma Parfum Pour Homme
    4. Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait
    5. Puredistance Black

    Never cared much for Allure Homme, I'd say Bleu de Chanel.

    Allure Homme is much better and more complex. Bleu is too synthetic and generic, for me.

    I just bought Allure Homme Sport last week and have been wearing it everyday since. It smells great and lasts long. I tried Bleu the day I bought the AHS and also like it very much and hope to get it also. It seems that the AHS lasted on my skin longer. I'd encourage you to try both as they are easy to sample at most department stores and pick which one you like best.

    Either of the two, however I'd choose Allure over Bleu, though, if possible, I'd frankly choose both.

    Not a big fan of either. Edition Blanche is the best from the Allure line imo.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Allure Homme Sport is a totally different scent than the original Allure Homme. For me, Jacques Polge's Tiffany for Men Sport is a better and less synthetic version of AHS and Bleu.

    I think Bleu right now is very "on the money." It's a very well made fragrance that is all about whats "safe" and "current". Almost sporty but not quite. You really can't go wrong wearing it, other than risking smelling like a lot of other people(it's really catching on).

    Allure I actually didn't like the first time I wore it, even though I love the Blanche edition immediately. The thing with Allure Homme is that it really is sort of an everything and the kitchen sink thrown in there, and I think my nose was really confused as I was really just expecting something almost "cologne-like" (citrus to woods progression). The bulk of Allure is a rather fatty affair as it just has a ton of sweetened notes making up the majority of its scent, even drying down to a sweet benzoin wood base(kind of vanilla smell). When I was able to identify the heart of the scent as half fruit(sort of apricot,apple,peach thing) with half mixed flowers, it all started to fall in place and I now like it much better, I do worry that it might get a bit out of control in summer heat.

    I would recommend Allure Homme but, unless you get bored easy, they both are kind of no-brainers.

    Bleu > Allure Homme.

    But both are pretty nice, but Allure Homme is one of my least favorite Chanel's. I like Bleu, AHS, Edition Blanche, and a few others over Allure Homme.

    I really like them both, but I think I'd buy Bleu before Allure Homme.

    Bleu is an inoffensive scent more or less everyone around you will like, and it's very hard not to like it yourself as well. I dabble mostly with niche, and pretty much hate aquatics and synthetic fragrances, but Bleu strikes me as a one of a kind NOT horribly synthetic smelling ... well ... synthetic perfume. It's strange, really, but I like it despite the marketing and probably slightly generic smell (at least generic compared to pee-perfumes).

    Basically, I can't say I feel you're doing anything wrong selecting one over the other. Good luck with your purchase, and congratulations on a very good and solid fragrance whatever you chose.

    I own both. Like both very much but prefer Bleu over Allure simply because of the versatility. It can be worn anytime for any occassion and is well liked by most.

    I enjoy both. I think if you were just going to have one the choice is Bleu. This can be worn year round and gets you noticed in a good way. Allure is a more mature fragrance.

    I am surprised at the responses in this thread. I thought Allure Homme would be the clear winner. I remember when this forum was all about bashing Bleu.

    I don't like either but give the edge to Bleu
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I own and like both, and I agree that Allure Homme smells more complex than Bleu, but the former can be cloying when oversprayed. For some reasons, it also doesn't last on my skin as long as Bleu does. At the moment, I prefer Bleu.
