Which one is better? Bleu de Chanel or Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme?
These 2 designer colognes are extremely popular from the house of Chanel. Both will get you extreme compliments but which fragrance, Bleu de Chanel or Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme will win when we ask the public?
HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT
Bleu de Chanel is a fragrance that is fresh at the top with yummy citruses and smokey and woody at the base. It has a fresh character and is quite piercing as a scent. Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is a softer, more rounded cologne on the edges. What makes it that way? It is the tonka bean which gives the fragrance a touch of sweetness and also sandalwood. Don’t get me wrong… Allure Homme Sport is also a fresh cologne with mandarin and mint notes at the top but it is sweeter and not as ‘blue’ fresh as Bleu de Chanel.
They both last a long time and give a nice scent bubble when you’re wearing them. Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme smells amazing in the air and I must say that for a girl (me) it leaves an intoxicating trail behind anyone who wears it.
WHERE WOULD YOU WEAR THESE COLOGNES?
Bleu de Chanel is an extremely versatile cologne. You can wear it with jeans and a t-shirt or for afterwork drinks. It’s not too playful nor too formal. It sits perfectly in the middle which makes it a dumb reach cologne for any occasion. Meeting your girlfriend’s parents for the first time? Check. Going on a date? Check. Meeting friends at the park? Check. I don’t think anyone dislikes this cologne. Bleu de Chanel is so popular for a good reason. If you want an in depth review of this fragrance I have done one here.
Allure Homme Sport is also a very versatile cologne and it smells expensive. To me this cologne smells like the South of France, finest french perfumery and a guy who’s wearing a linen shirt and a fedora. This cologne has a summer vibe of nonchalance to it. It’s a bit more playful than Bleu de Chanel, at least to my nose. It will get you amazing compliments from everyone too! Overall I think they are both collection worthy and are both different enough to have them both in your collection. I own both and I am not even a guy 🙂 This tells you how good they both are!
