    Each one will have their loyal champions. I would say that you will have to go to a mall at some point and smell them yourself. They are very different and each one could potentially be the one you will really love. You might even love both of them for different reasons.

    If you do not care enough about the scent to ask us, then go with Allure Homme Sport it's more modern and up to trends.

    If you mean Acqua di Gio, I wouldn't buy either for myself. You are going to blind buy? The better depends on some things. What do you like? What do you want? Will you want more citrus/woods or citrus/florals?

    Acqua di Biotech, without a doubt.

    Well, which one is better to you? You'll be the one wearing it. That being said, I prefer Chanel a bit more.

    Neither one of them are great but of the two Chanel Allure Homme Sport is better.

    I would suggest Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche instead.

    Instead of these I'd suggest Acqua di Gio Profumo or Allure Homme Sport Cologne.

    Definitely try first if you can.

    Chanel Allure Sport is my pick. Original ADG is good but it feels dated to me.

    For me - the former of the two

    Neither are my cup of tea, but Acqua di Gio smells the better of the two. I concur with going with the far superior smelling Acqua di Gio Profumo if it is an option.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Jasmin Antique (Rogue Perfumery)
    3) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    3) Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie

    5) Dia pour Homme vintage edt (Amouage)

    6)
    Anat Fritz and its reissue, called Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    8) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    8) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie

    If you cannot test either one, and don’t know any one of them, I would personally opt for less expensive alternatives. Those would be Versace Pour Homme and Perry Ellis 360° Red. Both are very close to the originals and excellent value.

    Go with Profumo, but if it's just those two, I would hesitantly go with the Chanel.

    I like both. The Chanel is a little more complex, but I would consider it a tie scent wise. Perhaps a slight lean towards the Chanel...

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne
