Chanel is launching men's fragrance Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme and adds it to the well-known collection Allure Homme. The first perfume of this line was launched back in 1999, and several other versions splashed the market afterwards - Allure Homme Eau Fraichissante Pour l`Ete, Allure Homme Edition Blanche, Allure Homme Sport and Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport.

Creator of the new Chanel edition is perfumer creator Jacques Polge who provided this characteristic combination made of musky shades, tart spices, aromatic freshness and masculine, woody accords. Sicilian mandarin, mint, cypress and clary sage are in charge of cold, herbal refreshment. Tart not of the fragrance is provided by a fine dose of black pepper, and woody masculine accords consist of cedar and sandalwood from New Caledonia, shaped and softened by sensual musk and warm tonka beans. This extreme composition is reflected in a combination of freshness, tartness, sensuality, sharpness and strength!

Flacon of the new edition has the same shape as previous Chanel Allure Homme edition in dark color with a silver color ring on the stopper with engraved name of the brand. Red and white letters on dark body of the flacon provide dynamics to the edition. The fragrance is available as 50 and 100ml Eau Extreme.

Face of the advertising campaign is professional surfer Danny Fully, while advertising video clips were directed (Chanel presented them in several versions of advertising clips) by Oscar winner Kathryn Bigalow. Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme was launched in 2012.

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme Fragrance Reviews

Addendum: If you have to compare CAHSEE to something, then compare it to Versace Eros, but in reverse and without the vanilla. If I had to pick between the two I would take VE without hesitation, but maybe that is like comparing green apples to mandarin oranges!

I bought Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme recently on a whim because I thought it was the best Chanel men's fragrance I have smelled since the days of Antaeus. (I have considered ordering a bottle of Antaeus directly from Chanel, but I understand that the castoreum is now either missing or synthetic and, although I do not become rabid when someone mentions synthetic molecules, I just didn't want any Antaeus but the original.) I have to say that I don't really understand all the preceding comparisons to other "Allures". I mean, why bother? CAHSEE has barely anything in common with any of them beyond the interlocking "C"s on the cap and the name "Chanel Allure". If you get caught up in the naming of things it is hard to enjoy anything. I just went up to the cologne counter at Dillards and sprayed a little on a card and then on my wrist and decided CAHSEE was much more interesting then the other two available "Allure" options and that was it. Will it become an all-time favorite, like Antaeus was for me? The answer is no, but if you want to own one bottle of Chanel which falls into the "powerhouse" category, this is it.

CAHSEE has far more presence than Bleu de Chanel, and it does that thing that all really good fragrances do, which is to remain difficult to define. The more sophisticated elements in this body cocktail seem to mitigate the profusion of tonka, mint and mandarin and raise them up to a higher place, somewhat like the crest of a wave rolling over you, but with a lasting force and a little question mark. If naming is important to you then remember the key word here is "extreme". There are about one-thousand aquatics out there and is anything about Chanel really sporty? I think not, so don't fixate on the sexy surfer in the ads or the fact that you probably wouldn't wear this at the gym, but then, yes, I think if you really wanted to you could spray CAHSEE on after a swim in a sparkling blue pool or 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and it would do nothing but overwhelm the chlorine or fresh sweaty aroma you might be experiencing at either particular moment. (OK, I've done it.) You see! It is a bit sporting of Chanel to have created something like this after all!

I had the Allure Homme Sport in the past and currently own the Extreme version. The Extreme version is more heavy with tonka bean, almost a gourmand scent in my nose. As it brother AHS, this is more suitable in non hot days.

I own both this and the original Allure Homme Sport. This fragrance is a longevity and silage monster. My friend sprayed it on himself and I could still smell this four hours later around 6 feet away. This is a very versatile sweet/ powdery scent perfect for going to clubs, bars, or out to eat with friends. I get more compliments with this scent than any other fragrance in my arsenal, and the best part is the fact that nobody else will have it. I don't like the scent anywhere near that of AHS, but everyone else's nose seems to think differently. Also, this is potent! I've put shirts through the washer that I wore out and they still smell like this when they come out. If you like the scent or want a "going out" version of AHS, I'd recommend this even if you have the original!

Pros:
Versatile
Unique
Gets a ton of compliments
Very good sillage and longevity

Cons:
Scent isn't as good as the original AHS
Not really sporty past the opening, could be cloying in warm weather

This is a clone of the original Allure Homme Sport. However, the vanilla is more pronounced in this and the woods seem to stick out to me. I purchased this because I owned the original at one time but got bored with it & besides the fact the it was/is so common. I gave up on it. I have gotten to the point where I do not want to smell like EVERYONE else WHERE EVER I go.

With that being said, this last on my skin six hours with average to strong projection in the beginning. After about 2 hours, I am left with a orange/vanillsh wood type smell that is not unpleasant, but it is synthetic. Chanel normally makes good fragrances, but this I am afraid to my nose is a average offering marketed towards the younger crowed. There is nothing wrong with that, but it is not for me. I will say I do prefer this over the original, but when it comes to Chanel's frags marketed for men, I will stick with the likes of Antaeus & Egoiste! Grown up stuff!

Compliments galore. Every time I wear this I would at least get one compliment, it's DAMN SEXY! Just trust me on this, girls and women LOVE this. Tonka blast, yes. But it's a nice masculine aroma once it settles down just after a few moments. The scent trail is what's so sexy, walk by a female and she'll think you're a God.

I honestly give this a 9.5 on the scent, I'm still amazed at how this smells, a sexy, masculine aroma. This projects really well for the first hour and about an arms length as it dies down. Chanel sprayers are huge so 3 sprays is perfect, one on the chest, one behind each ear, and you're set.

10/10 on versatility, perfect for any occasion. This is the only fragrance that I know of that's labeled as a sport fragrance that should not be used in high heat, I can seriously see someone getting a headache using this in the summer. Autumn and winter weather, this is amazing for those climates.

What is my *first* olfactory impression? Great copy of 'Black Caviar' ('Paris Elysées'). It's just what I'm talking right now. I feel somehow - cheated; since the BC costs, here in Brazil, R$ 45,00 and this Chanel cost me R$ 202,00, almost five times more expensive! In short, the quality of the copies of 'Paris Elysées' has been confirmed. Is it possible to interpret this 'Chanel' as the 'French Armani Code'? Yes. An 'Armani Code' more citrus and more alive.
Scent: 8/10 (good). Longevity: 8/10 (7-8 hours). Sillage: 8/10 (good). Quality: 8/10 (good).

Totally agree with @Marciu (although I love @Juiceman 0331's reviews), Allure Homme Sport, Bleu EdT, Platinum Egoiste... Currently they're all watered down versions of their former selves.

I don't know if it's IFRA messing up almost every fragrance that came out before the new restrictions or companies using cheaper ingredientes for making the most out of their succesful fragrances once they've become top sellers, or a mix of both, but the thing is that currently it's getting more and more difficult to get what you pay for in terms of quality. Whether you buy a new release made with new ingredient restrictions in mind or go for higher concentration more expensive fragrances without the scent evaporating in two hours and becoming a skin scent after 20 minutes.

@Juiceman 0331 - "Chanel doesn't do stunts like re formulation to make their fragrances less better and less appealing to consumers." - you gotta be kidding me. Chanel is the first house to fool customers, reformulate the fragrance and then pretend that nothing has happened.

Hello everyone,
When everybody thinking about Chanel it seems to pass Eau Extreme. And I can't understand why. It's a well-blended high quality approach to a sexier Sporty scent, which makes it unique. OK it is not my favorite Chanel but is certainly an underrated one. Sweet and warm for a sport scent, creamy tonka being fresher by citruses.
If you wanna go Chanel and unique in the same time, give it a try!
Scent: 6,5/10
Quality:8/10
Projection: Perfect for a cooler weather.
Longevity: 8 Solid hours.

Chanel doesn't do stunts like re formulation to make their fragrances less better and less appealing to consumers. I am pretty sure that most of us have experienced having our favorite colognes re formulated for the worse by big houses such as YSL and Gucci.
They don't discontinue fragrances that consumers actually enjoy.
They don't have inconsistency with their batches, unlike Creed and YSL.
These are from my own experiences and some people might have experienced something different from their time.

Now, let me tell you guys about my experience with Allure HS Eau Extreme.
I moved from San Francisco to the Phillipines last year, so it has been hard for me to use cold weather colognes here because it's a tropical country, but my Chanel collection has been great in this type if climate.
I use all my other Allure's during daytime, except for Eau Extreme which is exclusive for night time only. Why? Because of the prominent tonka beans, which smells sweet like vanilla, but not cloying or sticky sweet.
The other Chanel that I use for night time is Bleu De Chanel, because of it's incense scent, which I find nauseating during daytime.
All the Chanels I own have great silage, more than arms length and the longevity for all of them are about 6 hours. After 6 hours, they become closer to skin, but people can still smell it if their standing very close to me.
It's very hard to go wrong with Chanel and you can buy them blind, with very little worries that you're not going to like it.

Would I buy them all again when I run out? Yes!
My rating for Eau Extreme is 10/10

okay so ive been wearing this for a while now. first of all they should bring back "edition blanche" now that's yummy. My experience with extreme is not quit pleasant I do like the opening very citrusy but when the pepper kicks in I just cant bear with it. They should have made the pepper as a backround instead of a dominating note then with the dry down peeper mixes with Tonka bomb its not pleasant to me and the price?? not so appealing a pass for me unfortunately on this one.

Not so appealed by this fragrance first time. But my girl friend loves it ! So I tested again and again, and yes, this has become my daily/night fragrance. Very good longevity and sillage (not too strong but smelly just as much as needed)!
Easy to wear, no headache maker, finally that is a good fragrance!

Tonka,mint, and citrus that doesn't resemble Allure Homme Sport. by tonka bean I mean this is a tonka bomb. There's another new fragrance that's less expensive, smells better, projects better, lasts longer, and is also a tonka bomb. That fragrance is Versace Eros. Don't waste $70 plus dollars on this garbage when you can buy Eros and anything else in the Allure line that is much better than this crap.

Allure Home Sport Eau Extrême is a wonderful manly scent for the day time and for all seasons that lasts a long time and has (in my view) a moderate to heavy silage. I love the complex composition with amongst other strong citrus, tonka beans and powdery notes. I only do not understand the Chanel reference to 'sport'? I would never spray this fragrance on when sporting as it would simply overpower. It is a scent I imagine a lot of men may like and you cannot go wrong with it. Absolutely a modern Chanel masterpiece that is worth spending your money on. Please try it!

Of the 3 Allure Sports, this one is my least favorite but I do enjoy it quite a bit. It's quite different from the others - as the previous reviwer said, I cannot pick out any notes other than the tonka.

Very versatile - ideal for work, perfect for night out, great for casual wear. Perfect in any weather. Lasts all day long (8-12) but is a skin scent for me almost from the start - same with the other allure sports. I tend to over apply to compensate so I tend to go through them fast. No harm, thoroughly enjoyable.

The one thing that bothers me is the extreme name which is somewhat misleading - I find nothing extreme or intense about it - more of a sibling to the other allure sports than a souped up version.

Allure Homme Sport Extreme is a spiced up version of Allure Homme Sport, with the added addition of a noteable layer of tonka bean extract and perhaps the trim down of the citrus portion.
All in all, I greatly enjoyed this scent, although it seemed quite 'busy and complex'. When you first spray this, it is very confusing until the dry down hits. There are multiple notes all flying at you at once, and if your nose is like mine you will go about trying to isolate some of these. It is practically impossible until it dries down and becomes more recognizable.
Once it calms on your skin (after 10-15 mins) you will recognize many of the original notes in AHS, along with the tonka bean that was added for extra effect within the INTENSE version. It is quite pleasant, while still making this scent quite complex.
I believe it lasted a good 6+ hours on my skin, with the remaining 2+ hours sitting as a skin scent. The projection was quite good for the first 2-3 hours, while subtly dying down after to a weaker sillage.
Spray recommendations: one on the chest, two on the neck, and possibly one on each arm. This scent is gentle enough that it will not overpower everyone around with extra sprays.
Buy, try or pass? Definitely TRY. If you liked AHS, then you will most likely enjoy this one as well, but the added notes differentiate it just enough to make it its own scent, apart from the original sport flanker.

Longevity: 7/10 (6-8+ hours)
Projection: 6/10 (Good for first three hours, then calmed down)
Versatility: 8/10 (Anytime! Any season, especially spring/ fall)
Smell: 7/10 (Good smell- a bit complex and bold)

I'm surprised so many people see this as an acceptable
summer fragrance. Anything with this much Tonka is best used in fall and winter IMHO. I have to admit that I never even attempted to wear this in spring so maybe it works in the heat but I'd be surprised.

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme smells a lot different from the original Homme Sport. It is a Tonka-heavy fragrance -- powerful with a pretty good longevity. Its freshness comes from the minty opening with mild citruses, but overall, it has the same powdery vibe as Code Ultimate by Armani.

Performance is above-average compared to other designer colognes in the market. I wore this a lot in the summer of 2012, and it gave me a solid 5-6 hours power-punch projection before it decreases its strength. A very good scent for the price.

I agree with the comment with a lot of balloons below me. When you think AHSEE, think the original AHS but with the tonka amped up a million percent. This is literally a tonka bomb. Im a huge fan of the original AHS but i find that this has too much tonka in it for my liking and, coming from someone who generally enjoys tonka, that's saying something. AHSEE has great projection and I can see it getting a lot of compliments but, from a personal standpoint, i find this fragrance would have been more to my liking had it been a little less 'extreme'.

This is one of the better perfumes that Chanel offered men in recent years. On my skin it is a very well composed scent that has a certain character for itself and smells really nice.

On me this scent is more on the side of warm (e.g. Tonka/ Musk) and Cypress notes; and I don't get the link between what I smell and the image that Chanel chose for it: a surfer...the ocean...and the waves?!! In other words, I don't think of this scent as a 'fresh', 'oceanic' and 'sporty' thing. On my skin it is a scent that can be easily worn on a dining occasion!
Maybe its just my chemistry, but it seems like the fashion houses try to market even warm romantic scents with a 'sporty' and 'fresh' image, with the expectation of attracting more young customers.

Very good projection and longevity. Overall: 7 out of 10.

This was my first flanker to try of the Chanel Allure line.
All I can think of is Lemon and Cream.

Extreme, sure enough. This is probably the first scent which made me nauseous upon full wearing.

Probably among the minority here, but I cannot recommend this to anyone.

All the negativity, claims of unoriginality, and misled expectations aside, Allure Sport Eau Extreme is a very good offering from the house of Chanel. Though the criticisms against Eau Extreme do hold some merit (not being extreme enough or being too close to the original Allure and its Sport flanker), one needs to appreciate this for what it is and not what it was expected to be.

A great mix of tonka sweetness and citrus freshness accompanied by light sprinkles of pepper and mint to round it all out. People claim this to be uninspired, although that may be so, the fragrance is what it is and what it is, is a really good creamy citrus fragrance, probably the best only challenged by its lighter brother, Edition Blanche. And it still doesn't change the quality of the blend, which is more than excellent.

Not to mention the intense staying power this has, 10-12 hours easily. Projection and sillage are very good. The people you leave in your wake will be delighted to pick up on a shinku-hadouken-like scent trail. Speaking of which, this is a compliment monster. I have a handful of fragrances I prefer much more than Eau Extreme, but people of all ages seem to adore the scent, which is always a plus.

What I like best about this is its process. Though possessing a linear ride, it switches from being a citrus fresh fragrance to a tonka sweet one within 3-4 hours, which makes for a perfect spring or fall fragrance when the day starts out hot and the night brings in the cold. Don't be fooled by all the hate. Go and try this for yourself, it might just delightfully surprise you like it did me.

It perform amazingly well. I go with 2 spray(One on each side of the neck) and i get a nice sillage and literally a full day long longevity.
Quite versatile: Spring/summer night, cloudy/rainy spring days, and mainly fall/winter day.

And despite all the negative comments, i get more compliments with the one than Platinum egoiste :/

I recently discovered this juice and picked-up a bottle at Sephora. My wife and I love this stuff. To be honest, we didn't like Homme or Homme Sport (sampled 'em several times as they are always being pushed hard at the local Macy's) so we didn't pay attention to the other flankers. Okay, perhaps "didn't like" is an overstatement. We did like these fragrances, but they didn't do anything to differentiate themselves from the other nice-smelling men's fragrances out there...and with a higher price tag to boot.

Well, we finally took a whiff of Eau Extreme and, to us, it was much, much different than Homme or Homme Sport...to the point we willingly forked-over $72 for a 100 ml bottle of this love juice. I say love juice because I receive lots of hugs & kisses from the misses when I'm wearing it - I must say! Anyway, we both feel Eau Extreme is a much different beast than the other aforementioned frags and not merely a slightly modified flanker.

What do I get out of this fragrance: a rich, sophisticated minty-vanilla/tonka bean scent wrapped in very light musk and woody vibe. I feel that I get a whiff of cedar every once in a while but, in general, the cedar and sandalwood are so well blended and in the background these notes are indistinguishable to my nose.

The longevity and sillage are excellent on my skin. Eau Extreme is a top-shelf item in my closet. A bargain even at full retain. While this fragrance can be worn year round, it is perfect for spring/summer use. My only negative comment is this scent, to me, does not really fit the "Sport" fragrance billing in my opinion. But your mileage may vary!

Revisit on this one:

So I do actually get the mint and tonka bean, but they are so faint and they barely last 10 minutes on me. Overall, the term "extreme" is completely contradicting at least for my skin. This lasts on me a maximum of 3 hours and that's in 75 degree heat. Also, I bought this from Macy's, so I know it's not a fake. I had the original allure home sport before and it lasted about 10 hours on me. This "extreme" version is really a sweeter and lighter version of the original. I will be returning this, and possibly exchange it for something else, probably Bleu De Chanel or Versace Eros. I just got a sample of Eros and damn it smells good, but it may be too strong to wear in the heat.

It starts citrusy like a typical summer sport scent, but this one seems to have higher quality ingredients than most of the other designer fragrances out there. So I find the higher price reasonable. After 20 minutes the sweet aromatic notes (maybe tonka bean) come into play and they are really strong. It makes the scent smell more like a winter perfume although the opening was sporty and fresh. Really interesting combination and development. This one lasts long and has good sillage. One spray was enough for me. It smells expensive and alluring. I would buy it if it didn't contain musk notes: musk is known to be one of the most toxic chemicals used in fragrances, recorded as contaminant in blood and breast milk, has hormone and endocrine-disrupting properties. Synthetic musks can concentrate in living tissue and are environmentally persistent chemicals according to various scientific studies. So I will not buy a full bottle of this, maybe will only ask for a sample when I buy my next perfume in Sephora. 1ml should not be that hazardous :)

I just love,love this fragrance so much regardless of the negative comments,i find it very sexy and "yummy" !
True,the "sport" word written on the bottle doesn't fit the juice.It's not sporty but it smells amazing none the less.
It's classy,warm,creamy,sweet,clean.
It opens with a fresh sharp citrusy-minty note, like AHS and later it becomes warm and creamy and the tonka beans kick in!
On the dry down it reminds me a bit Bleu de Chanel.
It can be worn anytime,anywhere and it is fresh enough so it can be worn during summer.Bottom line it is a versatile fragrance!
It is long lasting(8+ on my skin ) and it projects heavy on the first hour or so,than it settles down a bit.
Overall it's a great quality fragrance like all Chanel are,on the down side it's kinda expensive in my country,110 Euro in retail @ Douglas Perfumes
If you like AHS you will like this one too,it's AHS with the tonka notes boosted up and it can be worn by anyone,anytime!

People can complain about how many flankers Chanel puts out all they want. My honest opinion is that Chanel makes the best flankers out there, and most of them could stand on their own. This "extreme" version of Allure Homme Sport may be portrayed wrong by the title. I will agree the naming of this scent is off, but I'm reviewing the fragrance, not the name. Allure Homme sport is a wonderful fragrance, but on my skin it didn't last as long as I wanted it to, even though it does last longer than most summer fragrances. Eau Extreme is the answer to that problem, atleast for me. It takes the best elements from Allure Homme Sport and adds more tonka bean to give it a more mature, deeper scent. This combination of citrus and heavy tonka is blended wonderfully to create a long lasting scent that will please most if not all who come in contact with it. It's strong enough for the colder months, yet still light enough to wear in the spring/summer. This makes it versatile and well deserving of being a signature scent for someone just to wear all the time. It's perfect for a date night, or wherever you work on a daily basis. I don't get all the criticism, which I'm aware that people have different likes and dislikes when it comes to fragrances, but sometimes I think people expect or demand too much, all while not even knowing what it is they're demanding. This is a great, manly fragrance that will please people. End of story.

I think this a really great fragrance that you can't really go wrong wearing. There is however some truth to what the guy below me said about it being Armani Code Ultimate in a different bottle. I'm assuming he meant Ultimate and not Code original, Ultimate has the Tonka that creates the similarity. Tonka is everywhere these days in Mens fragrances and is played out at this point but this is still a serious compliment-getter that I never regret wearing, I'm just tired of gourmands in general and creamy tonka in particular. Still a very successful flanker with tons of sillage and longevity.

I love this fragrance. If I were a man, I would definitely buy this one or Allure Homme Sport version for myself. Maybe both of them:)
They are not very different, just a bit different, but both of them smells very good and attractive. Both of them are TOO PERFECT for a man.

When I smell this one and Allure Home Sport, I get a wet cool metalic sense which I love for.

I don't like very spicy fragrances both on men and women, because it makes me feel that someone is trying to be sexy by wearing a fragrance. But, both this and Sport one are creating an image who is very cool, confident and sure very attractive.

smells very strong in the opening with a blast of citrus and pepper. the opening gives it the "sporty" name.

the mid/base smells like a creamy Tonka bean or chocolate.

last 8-10 hrs easily and projection is quite nice.

another quality fragrance by Chanel. pure class.

I don't like it. I think it's the worst Chanel male fragrance (but 10 years ago, as a young man in his early twenties, i might have loved it...it's not a bad scent)

This works the best on a warm summer night. So, at least, this might be the first evening/going out scent from Chanel since the original Egoiste.

It's time for Chanel to release a more daring nighttime scent. 2008 (AHEB), 2010 (Bleu), 2012 (AHSEE)....2014 ??? Bleu Intense? Noir de Chanel?

I have all the Chanel Allure colognes and this is the only one I designate as a summer night scent from the 4 Allures because of it's vanilla like sweetness from the tonka beans is so prominent and the not the citrus compared to the other Allures.
This can also be worn during daytime, but I prefer the Original Allure first, Edition Blanche second and Allure Sport third.
You can't go wrong if you want to buy any of the 4 Allures, because they're all great colognes.
I always get compliments from all the Allures.

I would always pick the House of Chanel over Gucci,YSL, and Dior. They love discontinuing and reformulating fragrances that we already love.
They have a bad habit of fixing something that's not broken.
Yes, Chanel have done reformulations also in the past, but in my own opinion they reformulate to make it better.
I have never tried any of their releases from the early 90's, but as of right now I will always have a place in my drawer for all the 4 Allures and Bleu de Chanel. Great fragrances for the money and worth buying again if I run out in the future.

My overall rating 9/10

I wanted so badly to love this one since I really like Allure Homme Sport but alas! After numerous wearings I must concede that it doesn't perform well on my skin. I've worn it a few times where I experienced what wesleyhclark described as a "pissy...note" (Thought my nose was playing tricks on me so I'm glad that someone else also perceived it).

Performance on me also isn't great either. After about an hour I have to bury my nose into my forearm to smell it. It's close to the original but not as fresh because of the tonka which darkens it's character making it more wearable at night than the original. To me it doesn't smell as refined as AHS and apart from the magnified tonka note, smells too close to AHS to have a personality of it's own.

I don't even think this should have been a "sport" offering. It seems incomplete as is and confused somewhat. I would have preferred that they maintained the AHS DNA, work on longevity and projection and darken it some more by playing with notes like tobacco, incense, vanilla (with a smoky quality) and oud until they had something really worth selling.

I'd also call it something like Allure by Night or something less corny. Given the current oud craze I won't be surprised if they did create a flanker centered around that note.

It's onerous for me to grasp your loathing of this scent. I find it uniquely enticing. I'm currently going on 21 hours after the application of 2 sprays and I can still smell it as if I applied it 2-3 hours ago. I'm currently analyzing it to see if I would like to buy it for myself and I can honestly say that it has more than reached the mark of my utmost expectation. My signature scent is Mont Blanc "Legend," but I can see this scent as a prodigious choice for the upcoming spring/summer season. I understand that most reviews are extremely subjective and will likely be based on their own skin type/senses, but AHSEE has proven to be utterly harmonious with my skin. Happy fragrance hunting!

I agree with the reviewer below me, it should have the Tonka name attached to it, because after 10 minutes, that's all I smell. It's just kind of a sweet powdery mess and not sporty at all. Not really sure if a lot of thought and work went into this one. If you like Allure Homme Sport, like I do, just stick with that one. Chances are you're going to like it more if not, the same.

I'm rather neutral about this one.

Not sporty or really fresh by any means. It could be called "Allure Homme Tonka Extreme"

It's Allure Homme Sport without Aldehydes and Tonka amped up to the max. Overall it's less fresh than Sport but it doesn't have the depth and complexity of the original Allure Homme.

It's a very linear scent without much development. Citrus top, Tonka all the way through and a hint of pepper and musk.

It's inoffensive, can be worn almost anytime and most people will like it. It reminds me a lot of a slightly fresher Armani Code. Mass-marketable and pleasing to most noses.

Projection and Longevity are good and scent is okay.

Not a bad fragrance but nothing i would buy because it's rather bland.

This does not smell sporty to me. I could see it as a versatile fragrance for any season, and for any occasion, from work day to date nights. I prefer it over the original allure homme and allure homme sport. The first blast is citrusy and spicy, and this lasts a good while. the tonka beans add a pleasant note as well. This is a pretty safe scent, however. You will smell good, but probably wont get the reaction of something more unique and daring.

I had some initial misgivings about this scent. For one thing how on earth can a sporty cologne possibly have tonka in its notes pyramid. I mean come on now how can that ever work. Then I looked at the ad campaign and laughed to myself, are they ovestating just a tad with the use of Maverick size waves in the ad copy. I was wrong on both counts as this a most clever use of tonka along with some stellar ingredients to evoke the raw deep power of the natural elements. It works and is possibly one of the most seriously modern masculines in the fragrance world. Depth and complexity beyond par. This is all about natural male charisma. Raw, rugged , handsome and magnetic. A scent that changes with the seasons. Wear this in summer and you will notice mint and mandarin defining its very own personality that underline how good this fragrance really is. 9/10. One of my all time favorties. Enjoy !

OK, I guess I have to change what I've written some time ago, unfortunately.

This fragrance is full of contrasts, IMO. There are fresh notes at the beggining - mint is really nice here. But then it's getting only sweeter in time. Mandarin orange is detectable and it gives a kind of fruitiness, but not sourness! And when the drydown comes - it's done. Tonka all the way. You can't feel anything else, at least I can't. Sweet vanilla-almond tonka and that's it.

Comparing it to original Allure Homme Sport - well, Extreme looks bland... It smells rather like a mix of Chanel Allure Homme and Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male to my nose.

Longevity and sillage are very good though. I get easily 10 hours with 3-4 sprays.

If you're looking for a solid (and common) winter fragrance - go ahead and try this one. If you're looking for something new - I'd suggest to pass on this one and search somewhere else...

Nice fragrance women like it I gotten several compliments since wearing it for about 3 months to me this is not a summer scent although it says sport it's better suited for cool spring days or fall winter it smells like a heavier version of allure sport (silver bottle) allure sport is a little better but this one is still good it's for cooler weather longevity is good too around 8 to 9 hours it'll get you through a full work day which is good enough

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme begins with a minty, sweet scent. The mandarin orange provides a fresh vibe to the composition as it settles. The tonka, mint, and pepper commingle into a warm spiciness that is accompanied vestigially by wood and musk.

This fragrance is invigorating yet tempered. It is not loud, but when tested contemporaneously with others, it stood out and was well-received. It's a well-made, unobtrusive, slightly sweet, and spicy perfume that pleasantly surprised many of the sales associates with the way it worked with my skin. Most men will tell you that this perfume is unremarkable, and I would agree. However, the noses of these lovely ladies don't lie!

Really heavy on the Tonka bean...but that's alright with me.
Now all of the Allure range use elements of the originals DNA but focusing in different areas. I think it's a credit to Chanel that they release such expertly blended flankers which don't really allow for criticism... they're just good!
It must be the creamy combo of tonka, sandlewood and cedar or something that gives the Allure range in general its signature as well as the fruit/citrus in the top.
Speaking of fruit... I didn't identify the mandarin note at first because it's against such an unfamiliar background (usually light & musky)
You get fruit/citrus straight away but because of the Allure signature it makes you think of lemons (edition Blanche) it's only when I delved deep in that I got the orangey flavour and to me it's very pronounced and lasts long into the drydown.
I know pepper is listed here but I don't get masses of it.
Another note not listed is Amber to me an amber accord is present in the drydown.
This is a well realized composition like all Chanel fragrances and especially the Allures. My favourite has to be the original but this is a close second and I love the summery, lemon meringue juice, that is Edition Blanche too.

Well, actually, according to Chanel site's info, it's one of two Allure Homme that are made in EDT Concentree versions only (along with Allure Homme Edition Blanche).
After many tests I can say it smells less synthetic and harsh than Allure Homme Sport, maybe because it doesn't contain the aldehydes, don't know...
But all in all I'd say it's a simpler(and stronger) version of Allure Homme (the one from 1999), kind of Allure for younger crowd (late teenagers up to late 20's let's say), because of gourmand side of it. It has definitely better sillage and longevity than Allure. However, I'd choose Allure over Sport Extreme, because stronger doesn't always mean better...

I would recommend using Allure Extreme during summer nights instead of daytime because of the sweetness from the tonka beans.
I get compliments from this cologne and a must have if you collect colognes. You can't go wrong with this one. The regular Allure Sport and Edition Blanche is more suited for daytime wear. Bleu de Chanel is also great for summer nights.

Smelled good going on but after about twenty minutes it began to take on a pissy, acrid, sour note on my arm.

Surprise! After a few hours everything sort of modulated and that edge went away and it smelled good. But, no, I can't deal with that middle section.

I don't care for this, and it reinforces my opinion that most "sport" scents aren't for me.

I really like this one! I pretty much like all of the Allure line, they all seem to resemble one another somewhat, but have noticeable (if not subtle) differences. This one is a little spicier, more masculine, and less sweet than some of the others in the "Sport" line, though.

Chanel Allure Sport Extreme projects well and has good longevity, and also seems to respond better to warm weather than to cooler weather. Perhaps that's where the "Sport" comes in, since otherwise I would agree with everyone that says that it really isn't a "Sport" fragrance. It is a compliment getter, since I've received more compliments with this one than of any other fragrance here lately.

Overall, this one is really nice and definitely did not disappoint me. It's very versatile as well.....I found myself reaching for this more than any other fragrance this past summer. I have no problem recommending it to anyone looking for a good fragrance that works well in warmer weather and in both casual and formal settings.

don't let yourself be misguided by the sport in the name always an allegory for "watered down flanker of..", this juice is huge and in the same line with Allure Blanche, citrusy opening and a final curtain of vanilla and tonke definitely sexy and well down in a world of overpriced rubbish this juice stands up.. a good 8 out of ten!

While definitely the most underrated male Chanel, Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is possibly the best fragrance for men that house has ever made (or "extremely" close to it). The best part about that statement, is that so few people will agree me. I don't really care either. So long as my girlfriend feels the way I do, that's just fine with me. She finds this scent TO DIE FOR and, I should add, better smelling than any other male fragrance by Chanel. Simple, classy, elegant, soft, refined, restrained, and perfect for absolutely ANY season, occasion, or situation. CAHSEE has become my signature scent. It speaks volumes without saying too much... and it does exactly what it should do (smell marvelous) regardless of its dubious marketing as an "Extreme" version of a "Sport" fragrance (neither one of which, it is). Powdery, creamy, mandarin oranges, mingle with tonka beans, the slightest freshness of mint and a deep musk. While far from being revolutionary, it also doesn't smells like any other scent out there. I find it funny that people feel this fragrance reminds them of Allure Homme "Sport". Hint: It DOESN'T!!! I should mention, however, that many people who endorse Chanel fragrances don't sniff too far past the "C". Allure Sport Eau Extreme isn't sporty at all, unless a powdery, creamy orange scent is the definition of "sporty". More like "elegant" and "timeless", perhaps. My only faint qualm with this fragrance is that while it projects like a monster at first, it only does so for 3-4 hours max, although after that, it dries down to a beautiful, citric-tonka infused skin scent for another eight hours or so. Put this on before a romantic evening with your partner and you'll be glad you did. Wear this any time, anywhere. Wear this before playing tennis or lifting weights, however, and well... you don't own any other "sport fragrances", do you?

Overall: 9.5/10 Everyday elegance.

Not very extreme or sporty, but still a pretty awesome scent in my opinion.

On first sniff it is very generic and familiar, but after about an hour or so it opens up a bit and starts to smell very sweet, like candy. Reminds me a bit of one-million. Like it was its more mature older cousin.

Overall a pretty good day scent that is unique enough to get noticed but not so strong that you can't wear it in casual situations.

Revisiting this again just to reiterate more->

Cuz these days it's raining in my place , i am in a romantic mood most of the times.This perfume is sexy and different.For first 1-2 minutes it tends to give a familiar illusion that you have smelled it before like some soap or some bathing lotion's bubbles but after 2-3 mins , it gives me idea that no , i havenot smelled something like this before ever.It is too fresh and too sexy.I think this can make any girl go wild.
Nothing to me was as sexy like this perfume.I cant describe it much but it is sexy and seems like some soapy smell.

I will always have this in my collection.Negative point is that it lasts 2-3 hours not more.
Positive is that it is freshest among the freshest shit out there and different and any weather scent.

My dream- i want this on me when i want some lover of me go wild on me due to its trail.

Verdict- 2 steps less than a masterpiece.8/10

I think a lot of the hate and dissapointment for this frag stems from the poor naming. Its not very sporty and its not very extreme. With that having been said, I love this scent!

For me this is a perfect work frag, really fresh and pleasing. I'm not a huge fan of citrus fragrances and I don't like AHS, I find it very synthetic. But this is so much nicer. A little citrus up front but a much nicer backbone with the vanilla and tonka bean. Yea its not really original and no it doesn't smell a whole lot like the others, but I thoroughly enjoy it! Perfect for work or anywhere you don't want to offend people. Lasts a good 8 hrs on my skin.

Highly recommend!

I absolutely love the original but this isn't even in the same league. they overdid the tonka bean note and mixes with the citrus to give this a play-dough like smell. don't get me wrong its nice in the beginning but after about 2.5 hours you smell like you were attacked by a toddler who threw tons of play-dough at you. the tonka is far to strong

It's basically the winter version of Allure Homme Sport, and that's not a bad thing. I personally like this better than AHS. If one saw my collection, most of what I'm drawn to are darker wintery scents, simply because I find them more interesting, so for my purposes AHSEE is the perfect sumer scent. It has great longevity (I get over 12 hours personally) with average to slightly above average sillage. The warm, sweet tonka note that dominates the drydown makes this scent totally viable as a fall, and even winter fragrance while the citrus opening and overall freshness of this gives it the "Sport" moniker, making it a good summer scent. I'm as surprised as anybody to find a "Sport" scent that works for all four seasons for me, but this is it. AHSEE has become one of my workhorse fragrances for its versatility and its overall quality. I highly recommend it. 9/10

It is good , longevity is about 2+ hours or something.It has a nice calming effect , you may feel like lying on bed for some more moments if you were already lying.I know this seems otherwise , because it is labelled sport fragrance.
It will remind you also of soaps and soapiness which lurks in it.You must have smelled , soap bubbles and soap foam , this is what it reminds me of.
You may think that you could be able to smell something like this in much less price tag which is a let down point for this.All in all , a fresh , somewhat different than other mainstream fragrances/smells we have been smelling a lot quite lately.

I have a sample of this fragrance and decide to give it a try although sport type of fragrance is usually not my cup of tea. My writing is by no mean a fair review of this fragrance as I have it on my skin for only about 40 minutes; however, the whole time I can only think of double mint tooth paste, extra cool sport rub, tiger balm and some Chinese/Asian camphor based medicine oil. So I can't help but ask myself do I really want to pay so much to smell like any of these?

I think it is lacking something. Not bad and very resemblant to the original, but I think they could have worked more on the drydown to smell more refined than this sweet and sour result.

Here is a short and updated review.

I am rediscovering all of my fragrances now, because I simply refuse to spend any more money until they are gone. The Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme just has an equally refreshing and pleasant overall scent. It has not been one of my go to fragrances, but that will change. I don't consider this fragrance to be daring. It's just a very clean aromatic blend.

First off, this scent gets way too much hate because of two reasons.

Reason 1: The name doesn't describe what the scent really is. This isn't a sporty fragrance. Allure homme sport is more of a sporty fragrance. This isn't.

Reason 2: It is perhaps too close to other allure scents (a mix of allure pour homme and AHS), so it isn't a necessary purchase if you have those two Chanel fragrances.

That being said, this stuff is awesome. This is my favorite in the allure series, and one of my favorites of all time. It gets compliments and it has good lasting power. I have dry, fair skin and usually scents are gone within a couple of hours. Not eau extreme, I get around 8 hours with this stuff, and about 4 hours with decent (arms length or maybe a little more) projection.

Try before you buy, as always, but I HIGHLY recommend this scent. Ignore the name and judge this based on it's scent people!

I was curious to try this after reading the reviews, I chose to buy this rather than the original AHS as I am not crazy for sharp citrus heavy frags. I have Bleu and that seems to be ok and quite smooth, nothing exceptional but long lasting for summer. I wanted to try this one as I was curous about it. Sampled it the other day and I am impressed. I do not find it to be too sweet but just right. I get citrus fruit at the start and then it tones down into a smoother creamier fragrance. In the drydown I can still detect citrus but a very smooth balmy citrus which is very pleasant. A lot of people have said that this can be worn in winter due to it's sweetness. I beg to differ as I do not think this has the bravado to stand out as well as some of my other winter favorites. I think Summer,Spring and Autumn are suitable for this but definitely not a cold winter like we get here in Scotland. I think he longevity and sillage of AHSEE is excellent. Just what I was looking for in a warmer weather season

To Nanodae, a friend of mine also like the whole Allure pour Homme line. They seems to get some feminine vibe when she wears them, and sometimes I cannot guess what she is wearing that being exactly what I am also wearing. I think our own skin chages a scent quite a bit.

I see that many people tend to hate this fragrance just because it's been marketed as "sport". Yes it does have the allure vibe in it and it reminds me of the original AHS, but it is NOT in any way sporty. However, this juice may have the wrong name but it is absolutely gorgeus. It smells like a sweet orange pie. It is very VERY balmy and creamy with a jellyish orange vibe dominating as the sweetener. It's just a little spicy and mint I do not detect at all.

Yes, this might not be groundbreaking, but it is very pleasing; something I would wear daily just to smell good but not to impress someone. However what I think makes this one special is because of the beautiful sweetened orange note. This is as sweet as le male or LL au masculin BUT it still preserves it's masculinity and mature vibe. This would certainly suit a man aged 35-50. Le male is something you smell among the teenagers and it would be a farce if someone over 30 would use it. AHS eau extreme however is in the same category but is much much more classy.

Definitely recomended, just ignore the bottle; the juice inside is top quality, as expected from Chanel. Also Longevity and sillage are way beyond average.

It smells pleasant enough for me in short bursts but the trouble with actually wearing it is that I find it too sweet, too creamy. I could see it for someone else, but for me I would want more spice or smokiness to balance out all that sweetness. It's funny because it's like I love it and hate it at the same time. I almost bought it the first time I smelled it, but I hesitated and the sales associate at Sephora offered me a sample of it. After wearing it several times, and now even several months later, I seem to go back and forth between being enchanted by it and made queasy by it. It's the strangest thing.

They weren't joking when they put "EXTREME" on the bottle in all caps.

It's funny people would complain about the strength of this fragrance when it says EXTREME on the bottle.

It is definitely EXTREME. Even 3 days later. The room you were in when you applied it and every room you've visited since then will be Allure EXTREME'd for days.

This isn't a bad thing if you're like me and you like tonka beans and musk. The citrus/mint/cypress opening only lasts a couple minutes, unfortunately.

Not seeing the "Code" comparisons at all, it smells NOTHING like any of the Code range. This dries down into a wonderfully classy scent. I'm a fan of the original Sport and this is a lot sweeter but it takes a lot of the sharper elements out and are replaced with softer, more mature elements. All in a fantastic scent with great projection and longevity.

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is beautiful. Exactly what a modern cologne should be.

Opening: Citrusy notes blend wonderfully with a minty musky smell right off the bat. Delicious.

Sillage: Excellent. It projects just the right amount to leave that wafting hint you might get walking past someone in an elevator. 2-3 feet, 3-4 hours for me.

Longevity: Very good. Lasts for hours and hours, still noticable for about 12-16 hours. I would say its very similar to Code in both projection and staying power.

Gripes: Miscategorized. Its not sport at all, its got very deep and long lasting smell. The citrus notes are understated. Can be cloying if oversprayed, other than that, meh.

Best for: A night out at a club or bar or wherever. Its projection is best in a crowd of people because its so sweet and bold, and it will last all night. Best in the fall or winter I would say.

Overall: Color me impressed. I love it. It hits all the right blends of sweetness and muskyness. Like the colognes my dad wore, its bold and rich, but its not overwhelming like his were :) Very modern, very masculine, totally worth a buy.

Very sweet. So much tonka bean that it almost treads into Le Male territory. I'm not a fan of sweet scents, so this really isn't for me.

Another thing worth noting - Allure Homme Sport has definitely been reformulated. I first wore it like five years ago and it smells a lot sweeter and more powdery. Such a shame.

Wow, I tried the original Allure the night before and it lasted way into the next morning even after a shower. So I figured I would go back smell it again and buy it. Nope, I tried the allure sport extreme and that was it, bought the big bottle right on the spot. It has a smell all its own, its not the original AHS or Blanche (thank goodness), this one has a soft open with all the cream smell of the original and then goes into the tonka bean with soft clean woody notes. This is a great anytime frag, I love it not overpowering but smells really sexy on the skin. I want to see how it holds up in the winter months ahead with the pepper and musk in it.
Thumbs Up for this one.

I found it perfect to wear this fragrance this fall since its way to sweet for hot weather. This fragrance lasts and projects more than AHS. The tonkabean is prominent through out my entire time wearing this. Its a really pleasant smelling fragrance that the ladies adore, espcialy when they catch a wiff of it on your shirt. My girl likes this. Sweet and inoffensive. As for my time wearing it? I agree with many here, its nothing new or even interesting. I prefer the less uninteresting Bleu.

Really nice scent, but not for hot days in summer, it's much better in fall and winter.. very sweet and intensive. longevity about 12 hours, I get a compliment for it after 10 hours I applied it :) it's funny how people are stupid and brainwashed by many commercials.. I freaked out when someone says: this is great for spray it when you are going in gym, or running etc... wtf?? because of this "sport" in his name?? no, this definitelly is not sporty scent.. I think it is suitable for wearing it for some romantic occasions or a date.. :)

Eau Extreme is a powdery, minty, vanillic fragrance reminiscent of JPG Le Male or perhaps Prada Amber. It's not a bad fragrance by any means, but I don't like it. It smells nothing like Homme Sport on my skin, nor is it "sporty." It's closer to the original Allure Homme in composition.

I would NOT recommend that Eau Exreme be worn in hot weather. It's just too powdery and vanillic for that type of setting, IMO.

Try it if you're a fan of Allure Homme or Allure Homme Sport, but I'll pass on this one.

Beautiful fragrance. It's so classy. Projects well but does not over power or offend.

I wouldn't wear this at the gym or for working out even though it's called a "sport" frag. It is just too strong and sweet for that in my opinion.

I prefer it has a casual scent for grad school classes, work, or a quite evening out. For me, this is perfect for spring, cooler summer days, and early to mid fall.

Off the bat it is citrus/tonka bean.

Then it fades to tonka mainly and stays that way for a long time.

That's the main note and the other notes you have to find so basically, this just smells like tonka which smells a slight less concentrated than cocoa butter. This is not a fragrance that I would reach for daily, but for occasions with older folks or lots of people at a night gathering.

This would work well if you go to events for school or with a group of a few friends.

I bought this yesterday just to see how it goes and in comparison with the original AHS.
The perfumes are more or less, brothers. The one is more citrus/orange, the other more gourmand/warm but you cant miss the similarities. Personally, i think I prefer the EE but as i find AHS a little bit harsh.
I would say that if you have the one, you do not necessarily need the other.
What i would like to say is that Chanel the last years is not taking the ball further, is playing between their perfumes and they are not releasing anything new, original or groundbraking. They are just making perfume that smell like hundreds of others. Blue and EE are a mix of some older perfumes but we can see that they succeed and bring money to the headspring, this is what they want although I do not agree....but money is what counts and not individual opinios or perfumes for the few. We have so many perfumes now and the market goes towards sweet/citrus/vanillic as most of us, prefer those type of perfumes. You do noe find fahrenheit releases now or Ecre noir....the mainstream companies do not want to risk and if someone wants these type of perfumes, he has to go to a niche brand. Chanel is producing quality, high standard perfumes but not uniqueness....The best from their line is still platinum for me. But i like EE because it gives you a wave of freshness and depth....it has a light soapy vibe that i like a lot, being fun of acqua di parma...

I already owned Allure Homme Sport (AHS), but due to curiosity, I bought this Eau Extreme (EE) version in 50ml just today.

I sprayed the EE on my left wrist, & my favorite AHS on my right wrist. Both of them were quite similar at the very beginning, in which EE started with strong alcohol, citrus, mint, vanilla, but the citrus seemed fade away very shortly.

When it dried down, the pepper & tonka bean came out obviously, and I found EE was sweeter than the AHS.

To me, I still think AHS could give me the feel of elegance, but EE couldn't, instead EE only give me a fresh and sweet scene, which is more general, nothing special feeling...not unique at all

IMO, EE is a combination of the AHS & the original Allure Homme (AH), which takes the fresh citrus from the AHS & the base note tonka bean from AH, so if you already have either one of AHS / AH, you probably could pass on this EE, unless you are a super fan of Chanel house...

Got it a week ago, and after testing it i can say that this is less "Sport" than Antaeus! Smell like the original AHS only 3min (literally) and then a huge blast of tonka remind me a lot of Armani Code (i'm not saying that they wanted to copy/paste one of the most hyped fragrances at the moment...) After three hours changes to a very powdery vanilla/musk/whatever combo very much like the last hours of YSL La Nuit de l'homme, wich is in no way related to any sport (unless maybe a snow sport, but NEVER to surf like the advertising video makes you think!). Conclussion: This is more like "LA NUIT DE ALLURE" (?!) than AHSport. Anyway.. is it good? Can´t say that it isn't.. Gets compliments? Yes, a decent amount. The best CHANEL? By no means. Worthy of the CHANEL price? I don´t think so. I would pick LA NUIT, CODE, or even LE MALE over this any given time.

Um unimpressed, about the concept and the fragrance.

I imagined Allure Sport with more testosterone, but i got Allure VIP (Allure sport + Carolina Herrera VIP)
But the result is weaker in sillage and projection to the two above.

It is not bad, it just that it isnt an sport fragrance.

I imagined like Allure sport, but more like Versace pour homme in the aquatic and woody department, reducing the Tonka and vanilla, and filled with some resin like the soft touch of Abercrombie Fierce. The base would be incredible with some nice woods and strong but smooth musk.


Overall: pasable, but if you want a Chanel go for Pour Homme, Sport or Bleu.

Im not sure if I like this scent, the opening is great with the mint and lighter accords but very quickly it is turning a bit bland. that being said as i go about every now and then I get a smell of something exquistitly beutiful but when i go and try and catch it the aroma escapes and hides behind the pepper.
I am hoping as this calms down the spice goes away and it becomes smoother.

I have been wearing this for quite some time, and I still don't know what to think of it. For sure, this is nothing like Allure Homme Sport. It's not a lemoney scent anymore. I get a lot of tonka bean. It's syrupy but not all that sweet. It's rich and rather heavy. Not exactly fresh nor it is totally warm either. Everything smells pleasantly weird to me, especially the mint (or basil?). Not a blind buy and it requires multiple tests before making a final decision. For me, the best way to go is to get a lot of sample or a decant, that's all I'd really need.

Ohhh this is nice. Shouldn't have been an allure flanker since I believe it is noticeably different than sport ot edition blanche. You'll notice the stingy powdery citrus that classifies this immediately as a channel. This has depth and if you like woody you'll love this. The tonka and cedar play nicely off each other. The pepper shines through every so often and the orange is always there at the heart of it. Its a little sweet for a summer day and I'm surprised so many people voted this as a summer fragrance. its versatile, moreso than bleu I think, but I would save this for cooler weather. Don't discount this for its sporty sport name

Perfumery is dead! Even the great houses like Chanel and Dior keep releasing crap fragrances. Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême is not extreme at all. It's a sweetened version of the original Allure Homme Sport. Creativity = Zero!

The opening of Eau Extrême ist identical to the opening of Allure Homme Sport. But shortly after the initial blast of generic freshness, the fragrance becomes sweeter, the sporty notes fade away. A big tonkabean note takes over the whole composition. It starts to smell nauseatingly cheap, like a drugstore air freshener. I was really surprised that a Chanel fragrance could smell that inexpensive. The same, sweet air freshener note was also very present in A*Men Pure Havane's base. I really loathe that nasty smell, but it completely dominates Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême.

What is so appealing about a synthetic tonkabean perfume? Why is it even called ,,sport"? What is sporty about a rubbishy sweetness? A big disappointment by Chanel.

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is only extreme in the sense that it uses an extremely bold tonka to soften the harder "sporty" edges of lemon, cypress, and sage. I wasn't overly impressed with Edition Blanche, and Eau Extreme is only sightly better. I like the general feel of the scent more than Blanche because this smells like the original Allure, with a few extra trimmings. I'm partial to the allspice in the original, and it's represented here in much the same way, except it's a little sharper. The citrus has the usual Chanel fuzziness to it, very air-freshened and abstract. Cedar and cypress notes keep the sandalwood of the original formula from being too dark and warm. But Allure's original sandalwood note is in there. Kudos to Polge for avoiding the usual bland citrus/musk combo in a sport scent. But one has to wonder if woody-citrus-pepper on the original Allure chassis smells sporty, or just dense and sweet. I'd wear it on a date, but I'm not so sure I'd bring this to the gym.

More tonka then the orginal , it's more sweet , slightley warmer and has the original aldehydic sea like scent.
It's not more powerful then the original , tonka is more intensive only.
Longevity and projection seems less the the original wich is kinda weird ! But still long lasting(6 hours).
Quality but it give me just like the original a nausea feeling.
For me , the cologne version is the best from the sport line!

This is a melding of the original Allure Homme and Allure Homme Sport. It's as if the original Allure Homme had a mid-life crisis and instead of wearing his usual jacket with wide shoulders decided to wear his younger brother's sleeker and more modern jacket, one made of of ozonic musk which envelopes Eau Extreme's tonka core, which I always felt was M. Polge's signature note in all of his earlier creations. I'm happy to smell it again!

I couldn't understand what people meant when they referred to the original Homme Sport as an aquatic--it didn't smell like the aquatics of Acqua di Gio, Cool Water, or Bvlgari Aqva. Maybe Creed Silver Mountain Water, but not the aforementioned aquatic standards, so I guess some people can zero in on that ozonic musk odor and I was just distracted by the other wonderful notes in the original Homme Sport.

What this scent has to do with surf and surfers I absolutely do not know, but if they decided that French fashion was their pastime away from the water, we might have a connection. Danny Fuller is from my home state, and I can tell you now that no full time surfer would wear any scent other than the smell of salt water in their hair and the smell of their own skin and the occasional flower lei.

Eau Extreme seems to have great longevity, but on myself, it stays close to the skin. It is warm, very spicy and woody for much of the duration. It doesn't have the lilt of Homme Sport, but I'm quite happy it has the deep nuances of the original Allure. Somewhere down the line they killed the longevity of the original Allure and has since castrated it somewhat. Nice to know Eau Extreme has come to the forefront to pay homage and at the same time don itself with touches of modernity.

Starts off like a deeper version of Allure Pour Homme Sport - then the Sportness of it fades away and It spins into something resembling a gourmand - not all all what a "sport" moniker evokes mentally. After 30 min, it is nothing like APHS.

It reminds me of Bond No. 9 I Love New York for Him - starts off as sweet citrus summer scent, then evolves into a dark cold weather scent.

I want my summer aquatics to stay that way, and a gouramond to start off there. Probably the worst Chanel I have tried.

Opens quite fresh with light citrus and quickly becomes sweet; the strong sage makes for a herbal, slightly medicinal kind of sweetness. The woods and pepper are quite subtle here; overpowered by the tonka I feel. Makes me think of Diesel Plus Plus with a sharper opening.

An autumnal, romantic, strong yet subtle, unisex fragrance which is a creamy-spicy blend...

I applied 6 heavy sprays.

0 - 30 secs - Alcohol, modern, clean, not much

30 secs - 1 hour. 1.5 foot projection - superb. It settles down after 30 secs to an on the skin very common place creamy-spicy aroma - a bit like harsh spicy rice wine and not too my taste. This is similar to many others on the skin e.g Surge Lutens Gris Clair or Daim Blonde. The scent which projects however is much better and is softer, creamier and alluring with less spice. This scent is ideal in the autumn, very romantic, with walks around falling leaves. There is nothing Sport about this.

1 - 3.5 hours. Still 1.5 foot projection, great! On the skin the harsh rice wine smell gets a smoother perfumed feminine twist and it becomes now a little more of its personality and easier on the nose. The scent which projects is like a more pungent version of Azzaro Chrome Legend for men

3.5 hours - 4.5 hours. 1.25 foot projection, same smell as above. Less unisex now as the spiciness re-appears and more masculine Ages 38-58. Again the scent which projects is much younger and creamier - ages 22 - 38. IMHO I would prefer to spray this on the torso or arms to let the better projecting smell waft upwards as opposed to spraying behind the ears as you will get some of the scent on the skin, which is harsh spiciness

4.5 hours - 5 hours. 1 foot projection, yet subtle. Same scent as above

5 hours - 6 hours. 6 inch projection, yet subtle, Same scent as above

6-7 hours - 2 inch projection. Subtle like above

7-8 hours. Close to skin

There is nothing sport about this, instead this is one to wear if you are falling in love. Romantic and strong, yet subtle.

If you are wanting a strong summer refreshing male sport frag, then I recommend you look at Lanvin Homme Sport which projects and lasts all day and is so affordable and chills you out

Good, but I wouldn't purchase

Extreme price but rich in flavour. I really love it. I am big Chanel's fan and I bought all of Allure frags, and Chanel Extreme recently.
All of them, longevity in my skin the projection is fairly close to the skin, the longevity is poor.
They are not perfume they are just cologne.
I usually wear Bleu or Chanel Homme Sport, but I think Extreme it's sweeter than Homme Sport.
I am very happy to have bought the Extreme

Sadly, there is very little that is alluring about this release. It smells like a pale, plain, middle child brother of the original Allure. I tried it on my skin. I sniffed and sniffed. My only instant reaction was a yawn. It was neither here nor there, similar to sitting through a very slow movie.

Where is the alluring quality and where is the air of Chanel luxury? None to speak of I'm afraid.

If this was bottled in a generic bottle, it would have found its place in Coty's wall of similar smelling sports fragrances.

I understand the frustration of Chanel fans about this Allure. Eau extreme is a cross between Allure Homme and Allure Homme Sport. Less citrus and sweeter, it's nice and wearable, pretty versatile. However the fragrance brings nothing new to the Allure line.
PS: I can easily see this as my first bottle in the Allure line.

Its really extreme in terms of elegance and richness.The perfume begins like allure homme sport in the first 5 minutes and then develops into a rich sweet hearts and then rests down to a sensual musky base which is extremely sexy and distinctive,people might have been expecting something new with a modern twist but here the name suggests shades of the original with a more deep and sensual scent,its a master piece and better by far than bleu which I think that people were comparing it to axe and now they are enjoying it.

Eau extreme is extremely chanel in terms of scent quality and elegant packaging,well done Mr polge.

It is a nice pleasant perfume but those who have the original, this is a waste of money because the AHS is very good also in terms of longevity, sillage etc. It is a twin brother in a different colour bottle. I would say is slightly sweeter than the AHS.

Haven't tested this on my skin, just on the bottle: it's a milker and more intense Allure Sport ( can't pronounce on sillage and lasting power). By the way, Chanel, you already have a lot of Allure references: classic, eau fraichissante pour l'ete, Sport, Sport Cologne, Edition Blanche, Sport Extreme. The same number of offerings Axe has on the shelves at 2 percent the price. Where is the luxury appeal, the focus on quality and innovation? We only have markets that have to be flooded with new releases every year (every season even). Also, perfumes have to be reformulated periodically, because "IFRA" says "this substance will cause you cancer and etc. ". Come on, reality is other: perfumes have to become cheaper to produce and more expensive to sell. The label is more important than the smell, unfortunately. Should I say the noses at Chanel are useless? Come on, Cristopher Sheldrake, focus more on Serge Lutens.

Except the word Sport I ve liked this really, if was named different would be great.
The good is that original's similarity to Issey Miyake has gone which I never liked and the rest is boosted in a deeper a richer way.
Very good projection and longevity.
If I ll own one I will probably put a sticker on the word Sport :)

There should be a rule against being able to choose that a fragrance reminds you of it's predecessor. Too easy. However, in the case of Eau Extreme... it's NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING like original Allure Homme Sport. Although it states "woody aromatic", it comes off like a balmy-oriental. Something in the mind of Armani Code and DSQUARED He Wood Silver Wind. For a fragrance that doesn't contain amber, it sure gives that impression, especially 3-5 minutes after settling into the skin. This is the best Allure since the very first. Definitely worth having among your collection.

Not similar to the original AHS.
The top notes blend together into a homogenous scent which is very soft and fizzy. I find it very hard to pick out the individual notes.
The mint is the hardest to pick up for me. I would never have guessed it was there if I hadn´t known.
Cypress and sage are the most prominent notes, then mandarin orange and last mint.
From the very beginning I can detect tonka bean and pepper, which is quite prominent.
The other base notes start to appear after about one hour, mixed with the top notes still lingering.
Very good quality juice and long lasting. But after about three hours it becomes very close to the skin on me. Soapy wood after about 4 hours.
When I smell this, the last thing that comes to mind is sport. They should have given it another name altogether!
I have Allure Homme Sport, but this is so good and different that I just might get a bottle. It is not a "version" of the original.

9/10 from me!

I do not understand so many negative reviews, Chanel tried to put the saturated notes in the first Allure sport to a wamer tunes with florals and aromatics lines. The first moments in Eau Extreme are sweet, fresh, fruity and maybe nothing new but the smell turns so lovely, confident, charming, sexy and very versatile in the last phase..

Surely we all expect something new, modern and different from Chanel but not simple, straightforward and easy to enjoy a great creation is discarded.

I love the new Allure Sport..an smiling scent.

Finally tested today. Somehow similar to the AHS for an untrained nose but indeed is different, unfortunately inherits the name Sport since its parent is named Sport, actually this one has nothing to do with sport.

I have really allergy to the word Sport on fragrances, what is trying to be achieved by Sport (wearing to the gym?!), I dont have any idea. Giant houses such as Chanel shouldnt launch fragrances with name Sport.

If I had to choose of one them I would choose this one.

Initial impressions were pepper was boosted, some kinda soapy, richer, more powdery and floral, woodier and also dirtier. I detect vetiver as well.

Need to test more to give a fair opinion.

I've tested this twice on my wrists. Not bad, but not great, in my opinion. It starts out like Allure Homme Sport with something extra that isn't quite appealing to my nose. The drydown is powdery with some vanilla and isn't to my liking. Others may like the drydown, but not me. I don't get the extreme part of the name or the scent of the fragrance. I'm passing on this one. I'll stick with Allure Homme Sport.

They shouldn’t have launched this one bottom line. Starts as allure sport. Turns into Edition Blanche and then gets stuck. It smells like an old lady’s perfume to me. Not good. Dissapointed in my favorite non-niche fragrance house on this. Bad move Chanel…bad move.

I was excited to test this fragrance. So, the first time I found it, I sprayed it on a paper. My opinion: Not bad. It's OK. BUT: the store attendant (a girl) was very honest, she said she don't like it. So, that was a warning to me: "women don't like this fragrance, don't buy it". LOL

Well, I didn't intent to buy it anyway...

Of course it does start off very similar to Allure Sport, but it quickly takes a turn in another direction entirely. To me it shares some similarities with Givenchy Pi. It is sort of a mix between Allure Sport and that same cookie dough vanilla, powdery feeling of Givenchy Pi.

VILE VILE VILE JUICE!
Avoid at all costs!
Disgustingly powdery, by far the worst Allure fragrance. It's a disgrace!
I currently have one spray from a sample on my wrist, and every time i put my nose anywhere near it, i feel like I'm not only smelling, but tasting detergent! Over priced to a treat!
AVOID AVOID AVOID!
I'm not an Allure hater, i currently have edition blanche and i adore it! But this eau extreme is vile juice

Smells nearly identical to Allure Homme Sport (and Allure Homme, in some respects), except for maybe that there's more tonka, in the Le Male style as others have noted.

Pleasant, but not my thing. I think the Allure line has gone through some rough reformulations in the past few years.

Found this very similar to Allure Home Sport. Same top notes to me, with a warmer middle and base.
I would agree with the comments that it's not very extreme in terms of smell. One thing I found amazing though - I sprayed one spray on the top of my hand - honestly, 2 days later I could still detect it. And before your ask, yes I do wash! I've never experienced that before - whatever they use for longevity it seems to work.

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is a beautifully rich and warm scent. It is powdery and intimate. It has a very comforting and inviting energy. It is ideal for those cozy sweater wearing nights with your sweetheart.

I´m with U "Unfinished" concerning the parrelerals with bleu de Chanel, I got a very faint similarity with the original Allure Homme Sport EDT, I have this feeling I have a complete other perception of the word "Extreme", coz this is not intense or longlasting at all, atleast not on me. Anyway, its pleasant alright, but nothin different from the usual crap. I would rather go for its predecesor, its definitley lovelier than this, U really miss the vanilla, even if the tonka still makes it sweet, the good freshy part of its predecesor is completly missin here. SO for all your info, just go for it if you want something safe. nothin much.

This flanker should have been named Bleu Extreme. It has more in common with Bleu than Allure Sport. Imagine cross between Bleu (top and middle) and Paco Rabanne 1 Million (base) It smells generic and has similar semi-sweet drydown with Paco Rabanne 1 Million, Diesel Only the Brave, John Varvatos, etc. Chanel plays safe with this fragrance. The fragrance has quality, projects well and is longlasting but without any distinctive character. I got one compliment wearing this. Thumbs neutral.

Tried it today on blotter so my opinion can differ from the one of men who wears it on a regular basis. I'm a big fan of the original Allure Sport, have bought it at least 5 times and still have a bottle on my shelf (a lot of girls enjoy it so I bring back my pleasant memories from time to time). I have to say that from the very beginning it's hard to find any difference between this two frags. But later on new Extreme becomes more sweet, more common and ordinary. I liked the original one because its perfect balance between sweet and fresh notes, the new edition lacks it. It's not Extreme at all, it's Safe version. Thumbs down Chanel, another bad copy to earn cash(((

I have been the biggest of fans of all allure frags over the years and still hold the original allure and sport versions in my top five fragrances ever. I also liked the later flankers. I was very excited about the new extreme version. The bottle is fantastic and beautiful, however having tried the fragrance now for a few days, I am a little disappointed. With some much competition of new fragrances it could be much more. It is pleasant, but nothing more, it is simply not distinctive enough. it gets better after approx an hour, although there is a note in there that reminds me of a more traditional than modern feel. The only thing extreme is the price, £66 at Boots, not just extreme but obscene!

Just bought the 100 ml today and received 2 10ml EDT's extra as free samples :)

It's a flanker of a flanker from the Allure line.

I own all 11 Chanel Homme frags and all in the largest available bottle sizes.

I have to say that I love the original Allure Homme and have done so since it was released.

Then came the Allure Sport and to me this is nothing special, but yet it's the top seller from Chanel for 10 years - and I have to admit, that while it's boring and safe, it is a very good sport scent and one of the better sport frags out there.

Eau Extreme is NOTHING like the other Allure frags.

The top notes gives you a sweet cloying minty vanilla with a bit of citrus in there.
This frag is quite heavy for a sport fragrance - I feel this might have rather good longevity for such a type of frag.
I still sense the vanilla & mint in the dry down, but the Tonka Bean is more prevalent along with the musk and cedar.

All in all I actually give this a thumbs up rating.

Longevity on my skin was very good - 7-8 hours solid.
Projection is strong for the first 1-2 hours, then the scent stays closer to the skin.

I actually like this frag more than I though I would.
Imagine a JPG Le Male in a lighter less cloying version and with the mid notes from the Allure Sport - this is what Eau Extreme smells like to my nose.

Rating:
Longevity: 8/10
Projection: 8/10
Scent: 9/10 (for a sport scent)
Overall: 8.5/10

If you don't like Le Male and Allure Sport, then stay far far away from this.
If you like Le Male and/or Allure Sport, you definitely should check this frag out.

Experiencing "Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme" leaves you with a big questionmark (at times when a big exclamation mark is what everyone seems to want).
Imagine this as a frail version of the now discontinued "Allure Homme Eau Fraichissante Pour l`Ete" with an almost evident dose of "Le Male's" main accord for the first hour or so.
The brilliantly executed commercial of a windsurfer challenging the ocean's waves with grace, feels rather misplaced for this smell but its low contrast b/w aesthetics do the perfume's sandalwood facet good justice for sure!
For a male perfume (much like "Bleu" before it) it is rather "thin" (to put it diplomatically). It needs more character to make any statement, something in excess.
The artistic designers/director have done a marvellous job (as always) but from a house with the tradition and know how like this one, we all expect more originality (to be honest, in this case this doubles with "common sense") and a troubled spirit.
It's safe enough to say that the only "extreme" thing about "Allure Sport Eau Extreme" is the word on its bottle. A very conventional creation indeed.

a note: the projection is fairly close to the skin, the longevity is poor.

I wasn't really impressed by this Eau Extreme. It is typical "intense" version of the regular fragrance with a big amount of tonka beans and something balsamic (like balsamic notes in Blv Notte and Cerruti Si). Unfortunately I didn't identify any mint here. The base seems to be similar to that in original Allure Homme Sport. So nothing really new or special - I like Bleu more.
