La Vie à Paris
When I was a little child I lived with my mother in Paris, because she had a job there. Unfortunately, I can not remember much more. Only the pömpesen central station and the general "Parisian romance" That floated in the air. And of this one fragrance, which for me embodies Paris in a bottle. It smells so noble and so heartwarming. A very good interplay of florals and.vanilla from the house of Chanel. It is a definite Chanel, But it is a little more lovely than its brothers and sisters. Great fragrance that will forever remind me of my mother and Paris.
Very nice For the office, job interviews or brunch with the ladies :)

My first Chanel
Allure will accompany me forever.
The vanilla is excellent hit for me, it gives the perfume warmth and even a slight woodiness, along with the vetiver.
Allure fits for me also in every season and to almost all occasions.
I find Allure to be very cuddly without being smothering.
It's a bit powdery and floral.
Jasmine can be perceived, as well as magnolia and May rose.
In the course of the fragrance flashes always times the lemon. That distinguishes Allure.
It is an all-rounder. Even more so an elegant one.
The honeysuckle is great placed.
Allure is really a beautiful fragrance.
It picks up many components without being a bad and too loud mixture. For me, nothing stings there.
This fragrance is one of my favorite, sometimes I use it almost daily and sometimes not at all for a long time, but a bottle is in the house

Allure, liquid gold
This perfume I like to call liquid gold. Many years ago, I got a small bottle for my birthday. I have guarded him like a treasure, but
sometime he was used up.

Now in these dark months besides wearing masks, I had been thinking all the time about what I could do good for myself...and then I remembered this treasure.

It's been sitting in my closet since last weekend, the first time I opened it and sprayed it on my wrist, it was like stepping back in time.
There are incredibly many great fragrances, but Allure is for me personally queen.

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

Bad Allure Allround :(
I love "Allure Sensuelle" and that bottle almost reached its last drop, so, when I saw "Allure EdP" on sale and wanting to try a different yet *same* scent, I blind bought this - Mistake.

On my skin I get a bad peach note that is arguing with the vetiver, cedar and God knows what else it's picking a street-fight with! But it's making me dizzy and slightly nauseous. I get none of the familiar Chanel vibe at all! It might as well be a completely different house! I had to wash it off....a rare occurrence but another harsh reminder that blind buys are risky even when you already own and like the *original* or *flanker*.

Alas, to all of you whose chemistries embraces this: enjoy! I guess I have to find a home for this one and grace the Chanel counter once again with my lovely presence : )

"Something in the way she moves..." could be the right musical transposition of this scent, discrete but very feminin with a citrusy touch

I would love it more with less citrus. Too "bright" for my tastes, but lovely on others.
