Chanel is a French luxury brand that has a long and rich history in women’s fashion dating back to the 1920s. However, their men’s fragrance line is also a force to be reckoned with as just about all of their releases are utterly fantastic and enjoy a broad appeal among cologne enthusiasts. For this post, I want to put forth 4 of these Chanel fragrances which I consider to be the best bets of the line. I have linked each out to its page on Sephora.com for more info and ease of purchase.
Egoiste Platinum– Classy and masculine. I actually remember hearing about this fragrance for the first time in a Biggie song. Egoiste Platinum is fresh with greenish and floral notes. Very luxurious and versatile for almost any event. Lavender, sage, geranium, sandalwood, cedar, and amber notes highlight this one.
Allure Homme– Sexy, warm, and woodsy scent with an added kick of spice. A moderate cologne that is striking in its sophistication. I also get the notes of vanilla and tonka bean which give it that smooth warmth.
Bleu de Chanel– Clean blend of citrus notes such as grapefruit and lemon along with a woodsy base. Extremely pleasing scent that gets showered with complements from all walks of life. Definitely one for the ladies.
Allure Homme Sport- An energetic take on the Allure name. This one takes a citrus and aquatic turn. Has a youthful vibe that is great for the late spring and summer months of the year. Smooth, some orange, beautiful.
