About Allure Eau de Parfum

Unlike most fragrances, where the notes dry down using the traditional pyramid structure, Allure is different. According to Chanel it is "Multi Faceted" and "cut like a diamond with 6 facets which overlap, with no single note dominating". The EDP was launched three years after the EDT

Reviews of Allure Eau de Parfum

Allure is my favorite Chanel. I can agree it is definitely multi faceted. As I read the list of notes, I can smell them all quietly whispering, "here I am" as I am unable to pluck one out to dominate. My husband bought this for me at the same time as he bought me No. 5 (his favorite on me), but this is the one I prefer. It reminds me of waking in a soft luxurious bed on a peaceful Sunday morning, gazing out at the sunrise, whilst still wrapped up, and being able to face the day with a slow gentleness. A truly exquisite perfume.

One of my 3 favorites for my wife: Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream, Guerlain Idylle, and this one. All of them lovely womens fragrances.

A pleasant white floral ironing with magnolia and lily, witha lemony-orangey note added for freshness. He rose in the drydown is quite convincing and merges well with a jasmine impression. A good vanilla dominates the base.

On me this is more intense and develops better that the original EdT. Good sillage and projection, but the longevity is the same as the EdT: six hours. 3/5

This perfume is Lust. Pure Lust and that's all you need to know. It is to perfumery what "Les Fleurs du Mal" is to literature.

I love this perfume. I've worn many Chanels over the years, but this is my favorite of them all. The reason for this is while all Chanels are beautiful, they are not always "comforting."

But Allure is downright "snuggly."

Everything is perfect on me, from the vanilla, peach, citrus, vetiver and cedar to the magnolia, jasmine and rose. The only note that I had difficulty "digesting" at first was the bergamot. I honestly couldn't identify it at first, the "note", I mean. I knew that it reminded me of something, but I couldn't pin down what it was..? Then, after re-reading the base notes, I noticed that they listed bergamot.

That was the note I had trouble identifying because on me, it usually just smells like "musty oranges on me." But it is so well done here that it actually smells like "Earl Grey tea." LOL :)

And this is why it smells so "snuggly" between the vanilla and peach notes compared with the cedar, rose and Earl Grey tea, I am literally "snuggled" by this fragrance. In that, it reminds of Donna Karen Cashmere Mist. It "envelopes" you and hugs the skin in the same way.

So, it has become my favorite perfume. I wear it all year, but cooler weather will just take this perfume to an even prettier place due to it's pure warmth. It's a masterpiece, I think.

Pros: Beautiful Vanilla, Peach and Cedar Notes
Cons: Not That Cray About Bergamot

I wore this a few years back and really enjoyed it. Went back to revisit it and all I can get is a jelly doughnut smell. What happened? Did they change the formula?
