The taste, aroma and fragrance of a fresh lemon are each in themselves a miracle of nature. Its peel, flesh and juice are incomparable. No fruit shines brighter than it. Everything about it shines - triggering in us associations of freshness, purity, health and well-being. While other fruits are mostly reminiscent of the upcoming autumn (e.g. apples and pears) and still others, far from ordinary everyday experience, evoke images of the South Seas (e.g. pineapple and papaya), the lemon, thanks to Mediterranean cuisine, is closely linked to the European summer. What other fruit better embodied the sun of beautiful Italy. Many a fragrance creation is dedicated to this connection.

One might think that nothing is more difficult than capturing an authentic piece of such an ephemeral natural wonder in an enduring perfume. A look into the kitchen of the aroma industry gives credence to this assumption. We are surrounded by 'citrus' fragrances, but all too often their impression bears no resemblance to the olfactory experience of a real, fresh lemon. In fact, citrus scents and aromas are everywhere and nowhere at the same time: neither in many fruit yoghurts, chocolate pralines or lemonades, nor in most shampoos, deodorants and soaps, which are (supposed to be) perceived as citrusy and advertise themselves with the beautiful yellow of the lemon, is there even the slightest trace of what a fresh lemon is able to convey. The devil is in the details - even in a supposedly simple thing like a lemon. It is in the preparation, preservation or synthesis of its flavour. This obviously cannot be simply re-created.

As a work of art, it can therefore already understand if just this succeeds in a perfume. Now Allure Homme Edition Blanche is certainly not the only fragrance that accomplishes this. However, among those that I know of for comparison, it occupies a special position because it is absolutely authentic. Its fragrance is indeed the aroma of a freshly squeezed lemon. Its "Blanche" stands for the fluorescent bluish white of its fresh fruit juice. In the top note, Chanel has thus succeeded in conjuring up a magnificent wonder of nature in a flacon, which in itself may be considered a small miracle.

If Allure Blanche stopped at the top note, it would be a pleasant fresh scent, a pure, perfectly successful replica of nature to spray at the touch of a button. And yet this would hardly be enough to stand as an independent fragrance creation. The feat of creation actually only becomes apparent a little later: after about 30 minutes, when the fresh citrus aroma slowly begins to recede, the heart note of Allure Blanche becomes discernible, which at first quietly supports the lemon while gradually gaining in importance. Vanilla, almond and light woody notes (soft cedar) are now found in the fragrance, lending sweetness, creaminess and spiciness to the acidity of the lemon. The combination of the individual components is very subtle, so that it seems to follow a natural course: the one merges completely organically into the other. The fragrance always remains radiant, only its consistency and brightness change over time: the white becomes opaque, the fluorescence diminishes - the fresh juice turns into a fruity-scented spiced milk.

Finally, in the base note, Allure Blanche is a little reminiscent of Bleu. Here, the color metaphor seems to come to its limits. However, Blanche does not become a 'blue' fragrance in the process, but retains its natural freshness and authenticity, quite unlike the ambroxan-heavy blues.

This Allure Homme by Chanel may at first seem like a very simple fragrance creation. Its technical and aesthetic genius probably only comes to light at second glance. However, for all those who have the patience to remain curious beyond the top note, this fragrance is a 'secret tip'. And for all those who love lemons, it is definitely worth a try.

Noble, long-lasting citrus fresh scent
The scent starts citrusy-peppery but without being pungent. The lemon is very natural as freshly squeezed with some freshly grated lemon peel. Later in the further course joins v.a. vanilla, but the sweetness remains discreet.
Especially great I find the connection of the fragrance with the typical Chanel DNA, I find this here even more harmonious than the mMn already very good Bleu de Chanel EdP. For me, Allure Homme Édition Blanche is the noblest smelling citrus fragrance, I like to wear it with a suit in the summer, but it is also excellent casual. For sports, it is a bit too noble for me, but basically I am of the opinion that everyone should wear what he likes anyway at any time of year and occasion.
For me, the best citrus fragrance, which has more than earned the good reviews!

Lemon Vanilla Summer Dream
What has Chanel created here? For me, one of the best perfumes I know. Allure Homme Blanche is for me an incredible round and balanced perfume. Wonderfully balanced and simply heavenly and not to be surpassed by naturalness. An absolutely successful lemon vanilla dream that reminds tententially of a delicious lemon cake.

The main notes that I perceive here are mainly lemon, vanilla and woody notes. Whereby for me the lemon makes a very natural impression. Not like many others that often seem very artificial. Although very many other fragrances are included I can otherwise perceive no special notes.

The durability is not extreme but still solid. Good midfield I would say. On the skin you get a good 7-8 hours with good sillage. After that, it is continuously more discreet until it then remains another 6-8 hours Hautnah. On the clothes you can still smell it easily for two or more days. The scent does not change too much from top to base. For me it it especially the first 3 hours an absolute dream, then it flattens little.

Allure Homme Blanche is a citrus all-rounder that is wearable at any time of year. Especially well I can imagine him, however, in spring and summer in fine weather. Since this fragrance by the lemon also very fresh and summery. Furthermore, this fragrance also radiates a certain elegance and luxury, so I see this fragrance rather middle-aged people. With young people possibly rather unsuitable. Ultimately, a very pleasant and pleasant fragrance for everyday and leisure. On dates or the like rather less suitable there he would be too little polarizing or seductive.

As a summary, an absolutely successful perfume, which I would classify as a noble summer fragrance.

The summer can come
First of all I am not a big fan of fresh summer fragrances. Especially in the cold season, I mostly reach for fragrances from the niche area. But that looks very different in the summer. Sure I have niche scents for summer but also designers and this is one of them. Fresh, long lasting, high quality and is very well received by the opposite sex. Price performance is right, so why not even test. Since some niche fragrances can hide behind

Grated lemon filled in a bottle
This is one of those extremely hyped scents that I think deserves it Here, of course, the wheel is not being reinvented, but as far as the naturalness of this fragrance is concerned, it's really on a high limit. I have sniffed quite a lot of citric scents, but often they were very artificial or overlaid everything else. This lemon here is completely different, for me it's like sprinkling a fresh organic lemon over my egg white vanilla cake. Absolutely delicious and noble at the same time. But I not only smell the lemon and the vanilla, but also the warmth of the pepper and the softness of the leather combine very well here. A little bit of wood is also to be sniffed.
The fragrance is really great and together with the Allure homme Eau Extreme my favourite fresh fragrance Also, the spray head is probably one of the best I know, in a row with Pdm and Amouage.
But, and here comes the big BUT, for me is the very modest durability. Just because the fragrance is not favorable, its durability should be better Nevertheless, this is really a grenade!
Recommendation to buy!

Probably the Best Modern Woody Vanilla Citrus!
Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche is truly an excellent perfume! To my nose it is a forerunner of all modern sweet, aromatic perfumes, with amber vanilla base. And it probably remains the best to this day! Perfume mainly with citrus, bergamot and lemon leaves, accompanied by warm sandalwood, a hint of aromatic vetiver and a wonderful vanilla with an amber background. Very elegant and incredible well blended.
What more can we say? Nothing ... highly recommended!

Lemon cake for the nose
It is unbelievable how much this fragrance reminds of this delicious fluffy lemon cake from grandma. In the opening you can smell the delicate cream running down the tongue, in the further development the sweet and warm sponge cake base. At any time in combination with the elegance and sublimity typical of CHANEL. The shelf life could be better, but as a fresh and unique summer scent, it is really successful.

Best summer scent
The perfect summer scent for me. Fresh, not too sweet. Beautiful lemon note that lasts long and for a fresh fragrance a very long shelf life. Heart and base are more masculine and underline this beautiful fragrance. My girlfriend loves it

Lemon bomb for the summer
I've always wanted to get a channel scent. On a very hot summer day, not so long ago, I was trying out some scents in a perfumery, as I was looking for another summer scent as an alternative to D&G Light Blue Intense. Among them was this fragrance here.

During the first spraying one or the other lemon flew towards me powerfully. This one is so intense that you cannot smell anything else. I don't perceive anything else... But that is not bad, because I like citric scents very much.

My first thought: "Wow. Amazing. Wow!"

This citric note remains on the skin for some time, never disappears completely and is therefore always present throughout the day. Although much more subtle, it is still clearly perceptible.

Light vanilla and pepper notes are added, which form a very round and pleasant scent DNA in the overall picture.

At first the scent is very strong and becomes more and more body-centered throughout the day. In the evening, however, you still hear a "You smell good" from your partner.

I would describe the durability as above average. At least for me. The scent lasts a whole day, but without being obtrusive.

Conclusion:
A very citric, interesting everyday summer scent that goes down well with yourself and others. Not too intrusive, but absolutely noticeable.

I personally like it better than the D&G Light Blue Intense. But this is purely subjective.

I will buy it again and again and can recommend it to all who like citrus scents

My first signature scent
At the beginning very hot citric but not unpleasant, I hardly smell the pepper. But already after a short time the lemon becomes pleasantly fresh and stays that way with me. In the course of time a Chanel-typical elegance is added, which I would describe as warmth. I cannot smell the individual scents. But this is often an advantage to perceive the fragrance cloud only as a whole and not to think about it all
The durability is very good for me and is easily enough for an office day. If it is very strong in the beginning, it becomes more body-hugging towards the evening. At least in the morning in the tram not only I smell the scent, also two rows of seats further on some students whisper "boah, nices perfume here"... the following day I wore two splashes less.

All in all, Chanel has succeeded in creating a very beautiful, harmonious, unobtrusive fragrance for spring and summer, which manages to be fresh and warm at the same time without drifting too much into sweetness.

This is exactly what I like, which is why this was my favourite fragrance for many years.
