    Default Do suggest me a new chanel summer scent

    Hi all.

    I already own chanel Allure homme edition blanche.

    If you had to choose between the following 3 from chanel. Which one and why?

    1. Allure Sport
    2. Allure homme Sport eau extreme
    3. Pour Monsieur

    I'd go with either Chanel Eau De Cologne or Sycomore. The former is a classic EDC style of fragrance of incredible sophistication while the latter is a multi-faceted vetiver.

    Platinum Egoiste or Bleu!

    Eau de Cologne or Bel Respiro are excellent in warm weather.

    …Edit….
    ^ disregard above, I should have read more carefully, from the three Pour Monsieur by a very large margin.

    Allure Homme Sport or Bleu or Pour Monsieur- either one is, in my opinion, a great summer choice.

    Of the three, Pour Monsieur.
    Why ? Because I don't find the Allure series especially alluring.

    I don't usually do this, but since I have nothing to add...

    This.

    I have and love both AHS and AHSEE. They both tick the boxes for me. To know for sure, you will have to sample and see if you agree. If you live near a Sephora, they are happy to make you free samples.

    I would go for the cologne version of Allure Homme Sport. The original AHS is nice but I find that it's a bit too heavy and can get nauseating if you apply even a tiny bit too much but the cologne version is much subtler yet retains that nice scent that makes Sport such a popular fragrance. As others have said Bleu would be a good choice too.

    From your list, I'd go with Pour Monsieur

    Default Re: Do suggest me a new chanel summer scent

    From your list 'Pour Monsieur' as it is by far the most summery Chanel fragrance out of these three, so I'd choose that one.
    Allure Homme Sport is more all year around (except cold winter) and the extreme I do not own.
    My Top 10 : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme
    - Guerlain: Homme L'Eau Boisee
    - Pal Zileri: Cuoio
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Guerlain: Vetiver
    - Amouage: Jubilation XXV
    - Dior: Homme Intense
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)

    Point Blanc Original Allure Homme is thee best in the Allure line up!

    I own numbers two and three. I am not sure the Eau Extreme should be classified as a warm weather scent just because it has "sport" in it's name. From your list I would go with Pour Monsieur. How did you come up with your list?

    Pour Monsieur -- would be my choice. Blu as second runner up, but that's quite a bit more popular these days and I dislike smelling like the crowd :-)

    Default Re: Do suggest me a new chanel summer scent

    I'd choose Pour Monsieur from the three you mentioned. But I would also suggest considering Cristalle Eau Verte. Nice, light, green, summery, not too floral. And probably not many other guys wearing it.

    Hi everyone. Thanks for all the suggestions until now. Maybe I had to mention I own blue as wel but I see it more as a year round scent.

    I do have my work cut out. :-)

    @ easyfish. Is no 19 a 'unisex' scent? As on the site of chanel and most stores it is not in the men section :-p

    Who cares? ;-)
    N 19 is a great green classic and can easily be worn even by timid minds....

    AHS would be my second choice for a Chanel summer scent. My first choice would be the Les Exclusifs Eau de Cologne.

    +1 for Allure Homme Sport...absolutely love this one and so glad I finally have a bottle. Love Edition Blanche as well, but AHS has so much better longevity on me.

    from those 3, Pour Monsieur. why? because its not an Allure.

    I get more compliments on AHSEE than regular AHS, but the one that tops them all is Platinum Egoiste. Women especially love that one, but as a gay man that doesn't really concern me one way or the other. But I work around a lot of them in the medical profession and speak from experience.

    I actually own all the scents in the current Chanel lineup except Allure, and (with the exception of Antaeus, which I don't care for), you simply can't go wrong with any of them. Except, during the summer, Egoiste. That one is definitely a warmer weather fragrance for me.

    Channel pour monsieur would be my choice as i perfect the Dior homme sport over allure sport.
