Allure Sport – Citrus, Watery, Metallic, Sweet, Spicy, or Woody?

Allure homme It was a complex composition that brought together four great families of aromas, four different personalities in one: the spicy, the woody, the sensual and the fresh.
Here at Perfumative we had already said that this is precisely why the original Allure was proof that “a little bit of everything” works in perfumery.

The Allure Homme Sport bottle is designed by Jacques Helleu, also responsible for Allure, and maintains a very similar shape.
However, instead of transparent glass, silver-tone lacquered glass and a black rubber stopper with a steel ring are used where the name of Chanel is engraved.
The black font on the body makes the word Sport stand out in red, a color used in most perfumes of this type because it embodies vital strength and energy.
The bottle has a metallic look reminiscent of Chanel’s J12 watch, and how could it be otherwise, it maintains a robust and luxurious appearance that is also cold in appearance, ideal to counter the summer heat.

The second version is called Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême and was launched in 2012. It is inspired by the theme of extreme sports, specifically water sports such as surfing. Its characteristics are aromatic and musky.
Thus we have the three facets of the sports Allure: the first with sensual features, the second tonic, and the third linked to adrenaline and strong emotions.
Other successful fresh perfumes in the Allure series include the Allure Pour Homme Edition Blanche Eau de Parfum 2014, a woody oriental with an elegant and fresh use of lemon.
