Appearance + Behaviour x Scent = Attraction
Let's start with a little translation first:
allure - English noun: attraction, charm, seduction, verb: to charm, to be attracted
- french. Noun: 1. pace, speed, 2. appearance, 3. demeanor, behavior
Apparently there are strong differences in meaning depending on which language you translate "allure" into. The French translation is still quite general, while the English is more precise. However, if you add the French meanings 2 (appearance) and 3 (behavior), you get a formula that gets you somewhat closer to the English meaning. An outwardly beautiful person, can appear quite repulsive if he behaves in a level-less manner. Conversely, a visually unattractive person can still seem attractive if they shine by their behavior. If a person has both good looks and good behavior: JACKPOT!
But there's something else about a person that turns our heads: their scent. You can smell someone or you can't. By perfume, this impression is additionally strengthened, because it develops differently on the skin with each wearer*in and because the scent reflects what type we are: spirited, sensual, natural, sophisticated, etc.
Chanel "Allure" has exactly this potential to turn an attractive person into an attractive one. It has a certain charm, an aura that I associate a lovely person with. I sprayed it on my forearm in the morning and "watched" it throughout the day. A pleasant waft of fragrance kept coming to me, making me feel comfortable and at home. Warm, gentle, feminine and soft is how I imagine the person wearing "Allure". She is fresh, clean, powdered and creamed, in short: well-groomed. As the evening progressed, the scent became heavier and retreated into the skin.
My conclusion: I'm not THE person with whom I associate "Allure", but on another woman I can imagine him very well - on a good friend, a woman in the middle of life. Personally, the scent is also a bit too heavy for me, a bit bitter, but miles more pleasant than other scents with bitter notes. But it shouldn't be hard to find a lighter version of this fragrance, or at least a variation, maybe even a dupe that's much cheaper.
"Allure" - a good choice, then, to whom it suits. But it's worth keeping your eyes open for similar fragrances
