    Either Sycomore or Eau de Cologne. If you are only looking at the standard line then Pour Monsieur (which is completely different than PM Concentre).
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frdric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'dri) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Bleu De Chanel is really a great fragrance. Something about the citrus and incense piqued my curiousity and now it has my attention. This crazy fragrance for some reason is the one women smell and then say to their friends...come smell him. Yes, it is popular and pushed by sales assistants everywhere, but damn...it is good.

    OK, thanks for all sugestions...I narrowed my choice to : Allure Homme, Allure Edition Blanche, Bleu de Chanel.

    Now, should i be carefull with Allure and Edition Blanche (regarding reformulation), because i've read some threads on Allure Homme Sport and reformulation, and i bought a bottle from 2012, but i didn't have any older AHS to compare it (regarding projection and longevity)?

    The Chanels are solid, no worries about reformulations with this house from what I have smelled.

    OK, thanks for your info, I was just worried regarding those threads about "Allure Homme Sport reformulation", so I tought they affected also AH and AH EB.

    Allure Homme

    Approached head on, Bleu is rather generic and annoying. But when I wear it, I'm often surprised when I catch a whiff now and again by how appealing it can be.

    I think you could have Bleu de Chanel or Allure Homme Edition Blanche next.

    I am wearing edition blanche right now and it has a very sharp smell to it so i don't know if i would recommend it right now. Bleu De Chanel is great and is very unique

    Coromandel for sure.

    my vote goes to edition blanche, as i see you already have allure homme sport.
    i got today both allure homme sport and edition blanche for this summer.
    regarding the reformulation on allure homme sport/edition blanche i think they just changed the box design a little (the barcode was before on back of the box below the ingredients, and now it's on the bottom), and on allure homme sport there is this written below the ingredients "il-28-l" - i don't know if this points to an reformulation or not?

    Sycomore, Bleu, Edition Blanche and the Cologne are all great choices, somewhat depending on what genre you're after.

    Bleu is the most all-roundish of them, I'd say. Applicable in all weather, at more or less any time of day. The others are tuned more for temperature / weather / time of day.

    Good luck and congratulations whatever you decide to go for. Chanel is a strong house, one that's grown considerably on me.

    Okay, so today i tested Bleu and Edition Blanche...i tested them on my skin and for now Bleu is much stronger than Edition Blanche (i applied two sprays on the same spot)
    Bleu is fresh, but also more formal than EB.
    Also EB is very unisex, at least to my nose, what do you think??? It's little similar to AHS, but AHS is more sharper and masculine.

    I think i'll go with Bleu for now.

    Bleu is a good scent, I think you will enjoy it. It's a very versatile fragrance that you could easily use on a daily basis making it a signature.

    I think also that it will be good for casual wear...as i said Edition Blanche is to me an unisex frag, and alot weaker than Bleu

    I think you made a good decision with Bleu, Edition Blanche was also unisex for me when i tried it, and if you own Homme Sport i think there is no need for EB.

    Although I consider Concentre a masterpiece, its rather dressy. For casual, everyday, and summer wear, the original is a fresh, handsome, cologne-y classic.

    Allure Homme Original
    Bleu de Chanel
    Allure Homme Eau Extreme

    I sold both my PM and PM Concentre bottles, because although they are well made, they just had that mossy green type of old mature smell, that made me feel a bit unfortable wearing them and the PM reminds me a bit too much of the 1916 made Acqua Di Parma Original, which I have a 180 ml bottle of in my collection.
