About Adidas Moves

Adidas Moves contains a whole bunch of tasty fragrance notes. Green Apple, Parsley, Black Pepper, Spearmint, Peppermint and Mandarine. Sounds like the ingredients for a salad.
The Ginger Ale Accord in the heart notes gives the fragrance an unexpected zing!

Reviews of Adidas Moves

Horrible...absolutely horrible.A very transparent fragrance that was clean in a laundry detergent way but highly metallic..I'm claiming grapefruit was in Moves.A light note of leather and pineapple in this cold and metallic garbage.

Addidas Moves is a licensed Coty fragrance made on behalf of the venerable activewear/shoewear company, and is really just an exploitation of the first-wave aquatic craze began in earnest with Davidoff Cool Water in 1988. Everyone and their mother was making an aquatic or aquatic flanker in the 90's, as they were to men's fragrance then what a barbershop fougère was to that same market in the 60's and part of the 70's: Easy, guaranteed to sell, non-provocative, and cheap. Early Addidas masculines came through the Beecham/Margaret Astor house and had a bit more seriousness to them, but once the Fragrance Borg that is the Coty empire picked up the name, it became a repository of second-rate ideas not good enough for prestigious labels, shucked to stores like Walmart for the teen set to stumble on. If I hadn't already been exposed to this, I would think the overactive note pyramid pretty clearly states how it tries too hard.

The ginger/ginger ale accord in the opening is the big bubblegummy gimmick to get teen guys off their Playstations and ride their 90's BMX bikes down to the corner drugstore to "score" a bottle, but once you get passed the almost-cute opening, this quickly devolves into "designer Windex" as I used to call it myself before off-loading it (finally) to a friend. The multitudes of mint and pepper notes in the opening make sure you don't go unnoticed as you pass by on a summer day, but is that really the kind of trail you want to leave? Green apple and pineapple sweetness also emerge, as if a bit of the ozonic fruit archetype also popular in the 90's had to be stapled on to cover all bases. Speaking of bases, that's probably the only area where this gets a few nods, for once all that olfactory calamity dies down, we get some nice sandalwood, real but slight oakmoss, muguet, and crisp thyme. They should really save this base and build a whole new scent around it, but instead, this became a full-fledged grooming line. Go figure.

My scathing review is not without some understanding. This was the height of the first aquatic glut in male fragrance, and by turn of Y2K, we'd see gourmands, new musks, and a new generation of fresh fare powered by ambroxen instead of calone gradually take hold, which is marginally more interesting. Indeed, this was also a direct assault on the 18-25yr old young active entry-level guy; the high school student, the collegiate, the service economy dude that drove a hand-me-down Saturn SL2 to game night at his friend's club basement, where D&D books were stacked to the roof alongside cans of Dr Pepper. This was an accessory in the gym bag of Mr. Football Scholarship on his way to Gold's Gym after class. I can't fault it for being made to find an audience, but from a hobbyist's perspective, I can fault it for being a bad fragrance otherwise. Even die-hard aquatic fans have a plethora of better options, and at prices comparable or actually lower than this. Too busy, too loud, too acrid, and probably more enjoyable being used as a bathroom spray than on skin. I'm sorry.

A truly unpleasant experience. Carpet cleaner soaking up onions in a diaper factory. Daycare Team Force wearing Pampers. Sharp and acrid and like it or not, going right up your nose. After a 45 minute tantrum, Moves does everybody a favor and pulls a Keyser Söze and poof! it's gone.

Adidas makes some underrated gems that are unexpected, dirt cheap and just plain fun. This is just dirt.

You know those cheap "clean breezitude of fresh ocean foaminess" candles you lit in your bedroom when you were 16 and trying to get laid for the first time? Well, guess what... the smell is now available in liquid form!

I'm *THIS* (holding fingers together with one atom's worth of space between them) close to trying to mask the horror of the drop I accidentally got on my wrist with the Carpet Fresh SuperPet foam under my kitchen counter. It's honestly a much more pleasing scent.

Doesn't last long but it smells fresh and clean with a little bit of a metallic note. Cheap, widely available and has gotten me compliments.

It's a typical run-of-the-mill fresh scent. Atypically, however, it has even LESS longevity and projection than even the run-of-the-mill scents. Right out of the bottle, the projection is about 1/4 of an inch. After one minute, it's gone.
