    Default Which Sephora scent for summer for Father's Day - UPDATED

    Wife wants to get me a scent. Not a lot of niche in Memphis. So we have kinda narrowed it down to these and I get to give her three scents to go smell and she gets me one of them. I have Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EdP for summer. I think it lasts pretty decent on me and projects well for 2 hours. This will be an all occasion scent, work or casual, evening also.

    That is nice of her
    Voted Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme even though I slightly prefer Dior Homme Cologne (but I think that Dior homme cologne is going to get more votes at the end from others, so I counterbalance it a bit ). Do not care much about the Dior Eau Sauvage line..

    What about Chanel Allure Homme Sport 'Cologne', apparently a more mature and classy alternative to Dior Homme Cologne?

    From this list, voted for Eau Sauvage Parfum, while also considering DH Cologne and Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme as honorable second options-both fairly qualified to share a respectable second place

    Voted for Eau Sauvage EDT.

    (My top three would be Eau Sauvage EDT, Eau Sauvage Parfum and Dior Homme Cologne).

    Funny that three people said "Eau Sauvage Parfum" (four if you include me) but it only has two votes. ??

    I really haven't tried all of them, so that may make my vote meaningless, but I was really quite taken with CHANEL ALLURE SPORT EAU EXTREME.

    I'm always a bit put off by the name layers added to flankers: "sport" "eau" "extreme". But this one made me smile and quite surprised me.

    Either EAU SAUVAGE is quite good...classic. The EdT wears light, but has better longevity than I expected and is a great, conservative summer scent. The EAU SAUVAGE versions are better for "all around."

    CHANEL ALLURE SPORT EAU EXTREME may be a bit "frisky" for work.

    I think the ARMANI would be the best performer (longevity/projection).
    I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    I brought home samples
    Polo Deep Blues
    Polo Blue Gold Blend
    Dior Homme Cologne
    Armani Aqua di Gio Profumo
    Armani Aqua di Gio Profundo
    Armani Aqua di Gio Profundo Lights
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport eau Extreme


    She liked the Armani Profumo best, and then the Chanel Eau Extreme

    I will try to get samples of Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne, and Dior Eau Savauge edt and the parfum. Will test those against the Armani Acqua di Gio Profumo and the Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme. it will be one of those five. Interestingly,that seems to be the way the poll is going

    Probably not. Eau Sauvage Parfum is not officially sold in the US market. You may find it at a duty-free shop in an airport, but otherwise, you'll have to rely on the grey market for it. You can't even buy it directly from Dior in the US, which is the same situation as Dior Homme Parfum.

    I'm kicking myself...I was going to say I bet she'll prefer the ALLURE HOMME SPORT EAU EXTREME. I'm not a know it all, but looking at that group, I figured that would cut through to her. It is a really good scent.

    The EAU SAUVAGE PARFUM may be tough to find. The 2017 PARFUM version is like a stronger "amplified" version of the EdT to me. I think I prefer the EdT. It wears close, but it's classic and hangs around better than I expected.

    I think this one is an underrated gem - but it's not at all flirty. It's not that kind of scent. It's clean, maybe even soapy, but it has a nod toward vintage style even though it's a thoroughly modern scent. That may seem like it doesn't make sense, but give it a smell and you may see what I mean.

    I don't understand people who compare Chanel AHS Cologne and compare it to Dior Homme Cologne. I get almost no connection at all. DH Cologne is basically a synthetic bergamot over an extremely fake wood base. It's odd that DHC lists musk as the base. There's NOTHING musky about that base. It's a scratchy fake wood aroma chemical. On the other hand, AHS Cologne is far more complex. It's a somewhat spicy citrus with a really nice rich musk deep in the base (along with woods and tonka). It doesn't suit me, personally, but I think highly of it and I definitely recommend folks sample it.

    Ok no Eau Sauvage Parfum at Sephora locally. Sprayed the edt on my arm. Nice. Polo deep blue and blue gold blend. Meh. Got sample of Dolce and Gabanna light blue intense

    On the Chanel AHSEE vs Acqua di Gio Profumo the Chanel lasts and projects better. Gonna hit Macys tomorrow to see if they have the Spoet Cologne

    So it’s Dior Eau Savaufe edt, unless I can find a Parfum, Chanel Allure Sport Cologne or Allure Sport Eau Extreme I believe from what I’d available locally

    Ok, brought home samples and here is where we are. No Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum locally so that has to go. Dior Homme Cologne, when she compared it and Allure Homme Sport to the others, nope Got to try these at Dillards and Sephora. Dior Homme Cologne and Dior Eau Savauge edt were fleeting on me, and too floral for the Dior and too lavendar/barbershop on the Eau Savauge. But maybe her nose was on overload.


    She likes

    Eau Sauvage edt. Seems like lavender to me. Lasts 4 hours but projects more than Dior Homme Cologne

    Dior Homme Sport. My thought is sometimes it can seem very powdery. She liked this the best on initial application

    Dior Homme Cologne. Worried about projection

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne, but says it has a celery-type note , but is citrusy. It gets better as it dries down She liked this best on a strip after 6 hours

    So Between these four, which ones last and project for spring and summer (humid in Memphis in July and August)

    I like the smell of Dior Homme Cologne or Eau Sauvage over the Dior Homme Sport. DHS feels powdery/iris to me. But it performs the best on my skin DHC performs better than Eau Sauvage but ES smells better. The women like the DHS

    So between these three. Sorry poll may be closed

    Dior Eau Sauvage edt
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne
    Dior Homme Sport Cologne

    Best scent overall of these three
    Best performing scent of these three
