Allure Homme Sport is the top seller of the brand. Since 2004, this masterpiece of perfumer Jacques Polge never failed to impress classy men.

Its top is loaded with simulating notes which slowly turns spicy, floral, and intoxicating as it settles on your skin.

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme By Chanel

Main Notes: Mandarin Orange, Mint, Cypress, Sage, Pepper, Tonka Bean, Musk, Sandalwood, Cedar

In 2012, Chanel launched the latest scent of their Allure Homme line, named Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme.

The face of this woody aromatic cologne was professional surfer Danny Fuller and its campaign was directed by Oscar winner Kathryn Bigalow.

Jacques Polge made sure he represented the strength, sensuality, and charm Eau Extreme resembles from its opening to base.

Its overall composition paired with fresh, juicy, herbal ingredients, makes it an unforgettable cologne to have in your collection.  This all-rounder takes a few sprays to last around 12 hours, leaving a notable trail behind.allure-homme-sport-eau-extreme-by-chanel

Like its other superiors, Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme also comes with a hefty price tag. So, be prepared to get your hands on this high-quality blockbuster.

So far, I have outlined the overall details of these Chanel bad boys. It’s time to compare them head to head.

Here are the differentiating key factors between Chanel Allure Homme Sport & Eau Extreme:


Allure Homme Sport by Chanel opens with a refreshing citrusy combo. It merges the sweet-tangy nuance of orange with Blood Mandarin’s hesperidic essence.

Furthermore, you will get a fresh, salty hunch of seawater paired with aldehydes to make your summer outing exciting. I also got the spicy, creamy tone, which made the whole environment very pleasing.

On the other hand, Eau Extreme Chanel also has a satisfying opening act. It contains the juicy sweetness of Mandarin Orange.

But unlike Allure Homme Sport, it blends the cooling sensation of mint with the dry, woody, and earthy smell of cypress. This is not the end, it also emits the hazy, savory ambiance of sage to lift your mood instantly.

After the first spray, I felt like having an aromatherapy and my brother also agreed with me.

Though both of these Chanel colognes have refining strat off, Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme won my heart with its well-rounded, refreshing herbal nuance.

Projection And Longevity

Chanel’s Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme provides excellent lasting power. With two or three pumps, it lasted up to 12 hours on my brother’s clothes and 8 hours on the skin, and he didn’t have to apply any cologne for the next day.

Not only longevity, but this sharp, masculine scent also comes with notable sillage and projection. When I applied it my brother was in another room still smelt which cologne I sprayed.

Conversely, Allure Homme Sport couldn’t impress me with its performance despite a stimulating formulation.

To test it, I took the sample during brunch with my friends and applied it in front of them. As its projection is not too strong, they quite liked it, and we felt the radiance of aroma was fading as time went by.

One of my friends said her husband has this cologne but that one projects more and she bought it for him a few years back. I could relate as I have heard the older batches were stronger.

Anyway, I was out for 4 hours after applying this scent and even got its redolence two hours later in the afternoon. That means for around 6 hours it stayed on. But only on my clothes.

So, it’s evident that Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme by Chanel is the winner when it comes to longevity and projection.

Compliment Factor

Both Chanel Allure Homme Sport and Eau Extreme are compliment-getters due to their brilliant note formulation.

Allure Homme Sport by Chanel has a lighter refreshing nuance so during warmer days people will praise your scent. As I mentioned before, I wore it during brunch and my friends admired this manly aroma.

Meanwhile, my brother recently wore Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme at an evening office gathering, and he said many of his colleagues asked him about his cologne.

It’s a tie between Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme and Allure Homme Sport as they both attract others around you.


Adaptability is a sign of a good-quality fragrance. You should buy the one which you can wear on various occasions.

So, where do you wear Allure Homme Sport? For outdoor activities in summer and spring sports events, it’s gonna be an excellent choice due to its energizing and sophisticated character.

If you want, you can also use it in the autumn. But, it’s not meant for winter.

In parallel, Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is more versatile. Because it comes with more flexibility.

Due to its refreshing ingredients, it’s an ideal choice for summer and spring outings and regular use. Additionally, for its soft, woody hunch, you can use it in the fall and winter as well. It won’t be much appealing at night, but on days it will work just fine.

You can clearly see that Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is the most versatile cologne as it’s wearable pretty much all year round.

Value For Money

The retail price of most designer colognes is higher. You must know their price before investing, otherwise you may have to spend more than your budget.

Allure Homme Sport comes in three available sizes. Its 50 ml bottle’s asking price is $105, 100 ml is around 125 dollars and a 150 ml will cost you $160.

It also has a deodorant version. If you can get that for 40 to 60 dollars.

Crosswise, Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme’s 50 ml bottle costs $125, a 100 ml flacon is around $150 and the largest 150 ml bottle is around 184 dollars.

Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme’s retail value is way higher than Chanel’s Allure Homme Sport. But, considering its other outstanding features, this woody aromatic fragrance has better value for price.

Overall Scent

Without experiencing any designer cologne properly, it’s not wise to purchase them. You must feel its overall composition before committing.

Allure Homme Sport by Chane has refreshing top notes. It combines the tangy redolence of Blood mandarin and sweet-smelling orange with natural elements such as sea notes and aldehydes to give you an ultimate mood-lifting effect.

Then comes the heart, where the spicy hunch of pepper mingles with the bitter tone of neroli and soft woody cedar.

As time went by, I felt the warm presence of vanilla and amber which was further infused with the clean, ethereal smell of vetiver, fresh balsamic elemi with a hint of musk.

Inversely, Chane Eau Extreme has a unique top formulation. Its thrilling capability enhances more as cypress, sage, and mint’s bracing aroma tunes with the sweet, fruity smell of Mandarin orange.

At the core, this newest Allure Homme Sport only contains pepper. After the fresh hunch, this hot, earthy redolence felt invigorating.

Slowly, you will sense the smooth, creamy tonka bean at the base. It’s layering with the soft, dreamy sandalwood and cedar felt so comforting but less sporty.

I couldn’t forget the moment when the subtle hint of musk brushed through my nose. I paused for a second, it was that good.

So, it’s clear that Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme Chanel has the upper hand when it comes to the overall scent between the two, as it smells more enchanting.

Final Verdict

Chanel Allure Homme Sport and Eau Extreme smell delightful and will make your summer days a bit more lively and refreshing.

Allure Homme Eau Extreme is the better scent as it provides more sillage, lasts longer, can be worn on various occasions, and comes with a great overall composition.

Additionally, Allure Homme Sport is also a wonderful cologne with its invigorating opening and mild trail. Though it lasts around 6 hours but will attract others’ attention.

So, now that you know all the nooks and crannies of these two summer scents, get the most suitable one or buy both to wear at different events.
