Opening notes of this green aromatic fragrance are a combination of somewhat "soapy" like lavender mixed with an herbal, green leaf type of component. Then it starts going downhill with mid-notes of a stiff woody/ginger type but to me what ruins it is an artificial, almost chemical influence that dominates the mid and bottom notes. It ends with notes of mellow, man-made wood and dark forest amber but again, with an artificiality that really takes away what could be a "nice", if rather pedestrian but adequate scent that doesn't stand out or set itself apart from the rest of the green aromatic genre except for it's distinctly the scent of a fake and is a man-made chemical mess.
Clean and fresh.
This was my most used fragrance. I've been wearing it for years. I went through several bottles (100ml) of Claiborne Sport spanning my last two years of high school and throughout college. The girls absolutely loved it. I still use it in the summer from time to time and my current bottle is at 40%. I have a brand new bottle in storage for good measure. Its one of those frags I will now wear just for the memories.
Pros: Lasts long, opening and dry down are amazing
Cons: None. I'm not joking"
Best of Claiborne
this is the best Claiborne has to offer for men.
pleasing lemon/citrus top with a nice aquatic fresh dry down that the ladies just find irresistible
the longevity here is the longest of any aquatic/sport fragrance ever.
$18 for a 3.4 oz bottle.
Pros: ultra fresh, superb drydown, very long lasting, ladies love it
Cons: you'll get of sick of girls asking "you smell good, what is that you're wearing?""
very good for the price. Generic? yes... very clean and refreshing smell. Smells like all those 80s and 90s scents like Aspen, Coolwater. Gets compliments too! Not complex or unique but definitely a good scent. Though, I may even opt for Aspen at the price. But I had both on each wrist and they were very similar.
Green, clean, fresh, generic but nice. Anyone will like it. Though, BNers with a higher standard may not enjoy this one.
I'm using a very relative, very liberal scale to give this a thumbs up. Claiborne Sport manages to improve a formula originated by Eternity for Men and Pleasures for Men: a candied fresh scent like a million others. Claiborne manages to make it last longer than Pleasures and not smell as ubiquitous as Eternity. Judged solely against this tepid pack, CS is a good option. Pitted against Derby, Habit Rouge or Sables? It's like bringing a toothpick to a swordfight.
