    Default Best Summer Fragrances (Chanel Allure Edition Blanche vs Dior Homme Sport 2012 vs YSL l'homme)

    Hello everyone!

    I chose three famous summer fragrances and I would like to know your opinions on the best of these three choices (in terms of scent and performances).

    DHS 2012 >>>CAHEB>>>YSL

    The problem is that the current version of Edition Blanche no longer has the vanilla cream or distinct woodiness of the original version. There was a reformulation to the EDT around mid-2013, and then the conversion to the EDP in 2014. Both new versions are inferior to the original pre-2013 EDT. It's still a nice scent, which I'd now describe as warm, creamy lemons, but I'd describe the old scent as creamy vanilla and lemon with an intense woody base.

    Happen on and like all but prefer Dior Homme Sport 2012

    I tried several lots of the current version of CAHEB and I found that the real problem of this fragrance is its performance. The scent lasted only 3 hours on my skin and the projection is mediocre

    'Best'? None.
    But definitely some million others before L'Homme YSL,

    The Chanel....now if Dior Homme Cologne was in the mix that would be a different story

    Liking all three, would probably go for Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche, followed by a (still respectable) second place divided fairly equally between DHS 2012 and YSL L`Homme

    I'm basing my conclusion on the present version of CAHEB.

    I don't think there's a right or wrong to this type of question, but in my opinion, the YSL doesn't come close to DHS 2012.

    Maybe also consider Dior Homme Eau. Don't know if anyone else feels the same way, but this summer I've found that one to be beautiful.

    Own and love all three. Of the three, AHEB is my most worn -- YSL the least.
