    BdC is more versatile to me. AHSEE can get cloying at the wrong moment, though I like the fragrance well enough overall.

    I never liked any from the Allure Homme line (except Edition Blanche), so it's an easy BDC pick for me.

    There is no “better”.

    There is “I like more” and that’s it.

    Only opinions ,not absolutes. And my opinion is I like AHSEE more, but that’s not hard because I think Bleu in any of its various guises is awful.

    I agree neither are 'better' and it is a matter of opinion.

    I would just about say Bleu is the better of the two (but I mean only just). If we were talking about Bleu in the Parfum concentration, I would strongly prefer that. If we were talking about regular AHS edt, I might have more of a challenge in coming up with an answer and may well choose both.

    Either that or by people that work in the perfume departments of large stores for designers or fragrance stores. Perhaps the same oddballs that are always working on their post count so they can seem more credible.

    How boring of a thread I must say. . how narrow of purpose

    If I didn't know any better, it seems like there are several bots on this site posting constantly all day.

    Anyhoo, I went with AHSEE. Both are great and my answer could easily sway the other direction next time the bots need a vote.

    I like more = better. Let's not pussyfoot around it.

    That girl in school that went out with Jimmy and not you, she thought Jimmy is better, which makes Jimmy better subjectively and objectively as he got the girl. Perfumes are slightly different than girls (and boys), so it's best to establish what makes it better, sales or smell or compliments.

    Having only smelled one of these two, I smelled another Allure Sport, I'd probably go with sales here and thus, I'd assume, Blue is the better perfume for Chanel.

    Objectively and subjectively, Bleu de Chanel. Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme can be annoyingly sweet and synthetic, at least to me.

    Neither, but especially not Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme. I hate to say it, but... it's junk. That base is too thick and gummy for a so-called sport scent or even for this style of scent in general. Allure Homme Sport is super generic. It's the smell of a guy who just wants to smell like he's wearing cologne. The Eau Extreme is basically the same, but with a heavier bro-sauce base. It's the smell of a guy who wants to smell like he's wearing the wrong cologne. It's like putting a brick in a pillow. Sporty and fresh but with concrete shoes.

    On the other hand, the abysmally named Allure Homme Cologne Sport (previously known as Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport) is surprisingly good.

    Bleu EDT.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.
