CologneMasters Chanel Allure Homme Sport Review begins with a testimonial from yours truly.
After stopping into Nordstroms to pick out a few different samples of fragrance to wear in the upcoming days (click here to learn how to get FREE samples), my curiosity awakened when I was walking by the Chanel booth and noticed a few fragrances that were recently rated as one of the top compliment getters for mens fragrance.
I met a very nice lady at the booth named Heather, and asked her which one was her favorite and she replied with Allure Homme Sport. This fascinated me because Bleu de Chanel was sitting right next to it in plain sight and from what I read, the ladies went nuts over Bleu.
So instead of trying to argue with her on which fragrance was better, I asked her for a sample and what day she worked next so I could give her the sale if I indeed enjoyed it enough to buy a bottle.
I sprayed a few squirts on myself for the ride home after work so I could get acquainted with it. My mind was going in other directions so I didn’t pay too much attention to the scent since I knew I would be wearing it again tomorrow so I could write a review.
When I arrived back at my apartment, my lady friend was sitting in bed, working on her charts from the patients she visited with during the day. I walked over to her and gave her the routine hug and started the “how was your day?” conversation.
As soon as I leaned in, I noticed she was reluctant to let go and asked what I was wearing. Before I had a chance to think about what it was I had on, it was too late. She pulled me in closer and wouldn’t let me go…

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Review Thoughts by CologneMasters
If you read the opening paragraph to this post, you’ll notice that my experience with it has been EXTREMELY positive because the women in my life LOVE this smell. When a person receives that much positive feedback regarding a fragrance, my judgement is quick to say this may be one of the best mens colognes around today.
The opening of Allure Homme is pretty powerful. You’ll get blasted with sea notes bundled with orange. After the top notes die down, you’ll start to smell the cedar, amber, and vanilla which will last until Allure Homme rides off into the sunset.
This fragrance is simple to wear because it works in every situation. With how clean and refreshing it is, Allure Homme Sport is an almost a perfect fragrance for it’s intended use which is for active people that are in close quarters with others and don’t want to smell like a sweat ball.
Longevity – I agree with the world when it comes to longevity. After an 8 hour day of work, I can still smell this on my body which is pretty impressive for a “sport” fragrance. If anything, the longevity score should be higher.
Projection – I’ll notice Allure Homme Sport on my person only for the first hour or so. Afterwards I’ll have to sniff my wrists to remember what I’m wearing. The projection is pretty average.
Versatile – I like that you can wear Allure Homme on a hot date, or safety to grandma’s house without offending anyone. A perfect signature scent.
Compliment getter – As one of the top fragrances to receive a compliment, you will receive them. Personally I don’t receive very many compliments when wearing a scent, but this is one of the few that I have.
Great for athletes – If you need to smell good after practice or after a nice jog, feel free to spray some of this on. It’s like an overpowered sport cologne.
Ageless – I don’t care if you’re 13 years old or 130, there is not an age limit I would put on this one.
My final thoughts-
Allure Homme Sport is a fantastic fragrance. It will easily show up on the best mens cologne list and will continue to receive compliments. Wear this anywhere and everywhere you go and you can’t go wrong. You can buy a bottle here.
Here is what other people have said about Allure Homme Sport by Chanel
Here is just another dude talking about compliments;
“The most complimented fragrance I ever had for men. Everywhere I go,-office, gym, restaurants, hotels, vacations, bus, taxi, and home, this one is stunning. I never go wrong wearing it. From day to night, smell amazing. I’m not promoting but I’m telling you my experience. I rate it 9.5/10. Not 10/10 because it’s bit expensive fragrance and it last less than 10 hours.”
A nice perspective from the ladies;
“Chanel’s Allure Homme Sport has to be one of my all time favorite fragrances for men! As a woman I definitely like fresh scents that have a little sweetness to them on a man. I love the sweet orange and salty sea top notes. I smell a little spice and it could be the pepper, but it smells like cinnamon to me which is fantastic and the base it definitely a warm vanilla. I think that the notes blend so well together in this fragrance so that it is not too candy sweet nor too sharp smelling. As much as I like fresh citrus scents, there is nothing appealing about a man smelling like a lemon bomb or a Clorox wipe what is so strong it burns your nose. I personally love Allure Homme Sport and every time I smell it on a man I always stop to give a compliment”
Talking about the Sport version and why it works a little better;
“Well about 2 years back I tried the original Allure and loved it but honestly (maybe this is just how it comes off on my skin or doesnt match my personality) it smelled good but was a little too spicy and mature for me. So soon after I saw youtube reviews on the sport version and everyone said it was like a more youthful, fresh version of Allure so I decided to try it and to my surprise the reviews were dead on.
This scent is just a beautiful blend of fresh,sexy,oranges up top and then when it dries down its more of a creamy, sexy scent with the orange smell still lingering in the background. My GF loves this stuff and is by far 1 of her favorite scents. Although this scent alone isnt my favorite id have to say this is overall my best fragrance based on how good it smells,compliments,longevity and sillage!!”
