About Polo Sport

Bright, bold, cobalt blue - The sleek contoured design was inspired by the shape of a water bottle. The cap is patterned to represent the design of a bar bell weight. Well that's what I was told anyhow. It's got lots of seaweed in it, which seems a bit disturbing, but it's not put many people off, as it's the worlds number one "Sports" fragrance. Don't ask me what makes a fragrance a "sports fragrance" apart from the name. I once drunk a whole bottle and I didn't run any faster.

Polo Sport fragrance notes

Reviews of Polo Sport

*reformulated version with the clear blue spray nozzle*

This opens up much like Calvin Klein's Eternity. It's sharp and sweet, but with a blue smell to it, if that makes sense.
And like Eternity, the sharpness in the opening gradually fades away to reveal a much softer interpretation of it. To me, it's somewhat linear, in a good way.

I've heard reports that this isn't as good as the Cosmair version. That it even smells bad.
I've never tried the original, but the bottle I did sample smelled really nice and pleasant.

SMELLS LIKE:
Aqua Velva Ice Sport. Almost the exact same, except Polo Sport obviously lasts longer, and has a better dry down.
Also, Aqua Quorum.

CONCLUSION:
I like this scent, but it's not really mature. This feels like something a high schooler would wear. Almost like a starter fragrance.
I think Polo Blue, and Polo Blue Sport are both a slightly more serious take on this style, although I think this one is more distinctive.
Overall this is a very pleasant scent. It feels a bit dated because it reminds me of Cool Water, and that scent, for me, was synonymous with the early/mid 90s.
An excellent fragrance to give you an idea what the 90s was like.

Nothing special about Polo Sport.Half aquatic and half fruity fresh 'sporty' scent.It's clean and fresh...it's just boring yet expensive.You could probably blend Nautica Classic and any Adidas fragrance with it and make your own little 'mongrel' of a scent that would be more creative.

Bought this when it first came out!! Reminds me of starting work/college and going to pubs for the very first time. It had a shower fresh smell to it and I remember it being rather cloying. Not sure what it smells like these days??

Vintage formulation by Cosmair is excellent, although its practically impossible to find now.

Newer reformulation severely lacks projection and longevity, and the scent disappears completely in a half hour.

If you're going to buy this, try your best to score a vintage bottle from the 90's. I wore this a lot in high school and recently found myself in the mood to wear it again. Lo and behold it smells as good as I remember it smelling. And when you smell a vintage, you're immediately reminded of the superior quality of ingredients that were used in fragrances before all the IFRA restrictions and reformulations (the current version pales in comparison). The average sports fragrance today has none of the complexity or character of this, which although nice and cutting edge, was nothing spectacularly complex in its day. Polo Sport is a tart aquatic, blending fresh fruity notes with a salty, marine/seaweed sort of smell. It mixes sour with salty and sweet to create something reminiscent of coastal breezes, perhaps in cooler, northern climates, as it's certainly not tropical in any way. It's distinct, and despite the plethora of sports fragrance which have been produced since its inception, Polo Sport retains some degree of originality, easy to identify and fairly memorable. While the vintage bottle I use smells great, its longevity may have suffered over time, as it lasts only about 3 or 4 hours before it's gone. I'm not hugely nostalgic about fragrances and rarely yearn for scents of yesteryear, but Polo Sport is one that manages to scatch that itch while also smelling good enough and modern enough to continue wearing today. Give me this, Polo Green, and Cool Water's Lancaster version and I'm pretty much set as far as vintage is concerned. Thumbs up, with a warning to avoid the current formulation in favor of vintage if possible.

Wished they still made this. Yes it is synthetic, but I used to get more compliments on this than any other fragrance. Great frag for the gym applied sparingly. Many aquatics have come after this one but they haven't really improved much. Love the clean pineapple and seaweed notes that smell clean aquatic but not fishy. I think this one just really works with my body chemistry.
