Action Sport took nearly half of a bottle for me to enjoy, but I did eventually learn to like it. This is very ‘in your face’ and brash. The year for this is 1993 and it ‘smells’ like a 1993 scent if that makes any sense. It is definitely a 90’s fragrance.
So, up front it’s strong and has lots of personality. The base notes are really the heart and soul of the fragrance (patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss). These are so strong that it was hard for me to distinguish much else. I don’t get much citrus, but I can get a softer neroli and lavender. But even these are mixed with the base notes.
The overall feeling of Action Sport is like you’re running through a freshly mowed yard (if it was 1993).
Really fabulous! Fresh, dry and class smell. It could be the best Hermés. I've found a vintage bottle in Buenos Aires...Incredible scent...It must return!!!

A very tart and masculine sporty fougere with a strong woodsy temperament, a bold patchouli and a rooty-mossy base. Bracing and airy with its brash and powerful sillage. It heralds by far its presence.
Let's plead the house to bring it back to life. A taxi driver once asked me what's on me, and said he'd go buy it the same day. Women love it. I love it!
This is very rare by now. A brilliant Sports fragrance though. No copy of any of the famous ones,no, has its own , clean, crisp lemon style mixed p with spices to make a perfect spring/summertime casual/sport fragrance.Up there with Sport de Paco Rabanne!Discontinued. Unfortunately...
