Spring Fragrance for men
Spring fragrance for men need to be very bright and playful. Why I am saying that ? Because Spring is all about the ice cold from winter blow away. The green grasses comes to the surface. Its not soo hot but also not so cold. A bright warmth. The fruitiness. That kind of freshness is required in the spring. So a great spring fragrance that is good for this time of the year but not limited to is Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme. It gives the vibe of a brightness. Calm and coolness as well as feeling of freshness.
Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme
Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is a flanker from famous expensive designer house Chanel. This was introduced as a Allure Homme Sport series next generation intense flanker but from my experience I can say this is a fragrance of another level. This was introduced as a sporty fragrance but in my humble opinion, I don’t think its much of a sporty fragrance. Rather this Is very soft and masculine bright spring fragrance which can be worn in my occasion from casual to suit. The fragrance was introduce in 2012 by chanel and the perfumer behind Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is all famous Jacques Polge.
Scent and notes
Very fruity and natural kind of a scent. The opening half an hour the mandarin orange, mint and cypress smell continue to flow away from you. Little by little meantime tonka beans and musky smell gets over the initial burst.
In the dry down tonka beans head the main notes with musk, mandarin and mint. The tonka beans give the masculine smell while mandarin and mint give the fruity notes. Sandalwood sage and pepper gives the deserved floral notes lightly to fragrance to make it smell extremely like as an a spring fragrance.
Since this is an extreme version as you can expect somewhat long lasting fragrance. In a good spring day it would last for 5 to 7 hours depend on your weather and the location. Spring fragrance are always tend to be very high longevity due to weather conditions and freshness of the air. So specially fragrance like Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme tend to last long bit more time compare to other fragrances.
First 2 hours projection is very good. Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme project around your arm length to 5 feet distance with ease. Specially if you are in a covered environment you can easyly fill the room with scent. I personally believe this is a great projection specially in spring time. After the 2 to 3 hours mark the scent smell getting fainter and after 4 hours or so the smell become a skin scent. Which is still good because in my opinion . 3 to 4 hour last longing fragrances are almost beasts in its category.
Even though I say it is a spring fragrance, the Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is a very versatile fragrance. Even though you can wore this fragrance all day long, I believe this is an evening or morning fragrance. Not so suited for bright day time or cold night. Go very good with the suits as well as casual dress. Due to tonka bean the masculine scent always give the alpha male vibe. I believe this is a fragrance for young adult to – adult age. 20 to 40 in numbers. You can wore it after sport or after bath or anything that want to make you extremely fresh.
Chanel products are always high quality. This is how they maintain their reputation. Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is not an exception. The bottle looks like made from metal but it is created from glass. The cap is good rubber and plastic mix. Solid fit cap. Not magnetic but nice finishing touch. Bottle and colors are very beautifully matched. I believe the fragrance bottle design to go with Allure Homme designer line products such as watches and glasses. The sprayer is one of the best available in current market. There are 2 options. The lighter mist and wide full blown mist. Love the sprayer. You cant build better sprayers than that.
Event though Chanel is designer house, the prices of the fragrances are not so low compare to other designer houses in fragrance game. Fragrance come with 50ml 100ml and 150ml bottles and 100ml bottle can buy fro anywhere between 100$ to 120$. I believe Considering the quality and the brand name it is extremely reasonable price. But you can buy 50ml bottle for much more reduced price but keep in mind though there are lot of chanel fakes. You might easyly get a fake bottle for 80$. So always buy from authentic sellers or from outlet.
Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is a great spring fragrance. The top notes are Tonka bean, mandarin and musk. Even though the fragrance named as extreme, this is a very gentle fragrance that can be worn for any event between an official meeting into a evening candle light dinner.
