The best thing about “Allure” is this ad featuring the GORGEOUS Malay model Nora Ariffin. If only the perfume was as lovely as the picture. Created in 1996 by “Chanel’s design house” (I was unable to find the name of the perfumer, which could be part of the problem), Allure is a nasty little bugger. Some woods at the top, some plasticky vanilla in the drydown, but mostly just an extremely watered-down version of Chance crossed with any generic fruity floral on the market. Not at all alluring, and certainly not worthy of the name Chanel.
Disclaimer: I tried Allure at Sephora.
