I hesitated to write this review because scent is such a personal experience. What smells good to one may smell awful to another. But Allure is, to me at least, the perfect perfume. I frist bought it several years ago in France, so it certainly has a nice memory for me. And it's by Chanel, which is classic. How can anything with the Chanel name be bad? It has a scent which is sweet and sexy at the same time. It is incredibly long-lasting. My husband says it is imbeded in my skin now. All my clothes, even after washing, have a faint scent of Allure. Once, my daughter wore it to school and a friend (male) said to her, "you smell great -- you smell like your house!"
You can also get Allure in a lotion, a soap and a few other products. A bottle is pricey, but it lasts about two years without loosing strength or changing the scent. I am an Allure fan for life!
