A very 'green' sporty fragrance with hints of citrus and menthol. It can be quite harsh and overpowering on first application, but it does settle down after half an hour or so into something fresh, almost like newly cut grass.
Overall a nice, green, 'outdoorsy' scent. Just go a bit easy with the trigger finger.
It's hard to categorize this one. On one hand, when you smell this up close to your skin, it smells like a classic bitter green chypre. On the other hand, when you smell its radiant smell from a distance, it smells like a classic clean, soapy fougere. It's like layering Annick Goutal's Eau du Sud with Brut.
This is really excellent, and is probably Adidas' best fragrance. It's not at all your typical boring woody citrus sport fragrance that Adidas cranks out all the time. It's green, grassy and fresh smelling, without smelling synthetic. I particularly like its fougere facets, with its dry, powdery green soapiness providing a very masculine edge. This would not make a good feminine scent.
Fans of old school green fragrances like Devin, Brut or Paco Rabanne should check out Sport Field.
MY RATING: 8/10
If the point of this was to smell like grass, it does so pretty well.
Unfortunately, it's also super linear. Opens with a harsh, almost alcohol-like blast of citrus/grass. In around half an hour, the grass and citurs softens out a bit, and I smell a tiny bit of musk or woods, but there's still a sharp alcohol smell lingering in the background.
Wearable, but not recommended (unless you really like smelling like grass)
At first, it's quite strong, and somewhat similar to Montana Parfum d'Homme ("red box") but not as rich and a bit "synthetic"' smelling. The pyramid top notes are: apple, tomato stem, anise, green notes, black pepper, and peppermint (this is my best guess from the Estonian site, http://www.parfyym.pri.ee/?op=body&id=447&cid=5724). I generally try to avoid top notes, and I could see these top notes easily causing olfactory fatigue. The top lasted about 20 minutes, though I blow on the area sprayed to try and get it to the drydown faster.
The middle notes are ginger, cedar, lavender, geranium, juniper, jasmine, and musk. It is here that the frag morphs clearly into a Montana Homme (red box) type of fragrance.
Eventually,the base is dry and simple: sandalwood, thyme, and moss, supposedly. The Montana is obviously superior in every way so at current prices I see no reason to buy this, unless you are really strapped for cash and feel that you must have this kind of fragrance. If you want something simpler than the Montana but still better quality than Sport Field, I suggest 273 Men by Hayman, which has an interesting smoky quality.

This, to me, was quite offensive upon first whiff out of the atomizer (especially if more than 3-4 sprays are applied). However, within ~20 minutes, the dry down becomes rather pleasant. It has a kind of 1979ish macho vibe, along with a less refined aura of the original Polo in the green/gold flask. I would probably like to smell this on somebody else, rather than on myself. A neutral review doesn't really do this scent justice, although a "thumbs-up" would be inaccurate as well; we'll have to settle for neutral!
