Reviews of Santos Eau de Sport

Artemisia, citrus and bergamot embedded in a lush deep green note are in the opening, combines to a wonderful green potpourri. The citrus mellows a bit, and fir, thyme, cedarwood and vetiver give beautiful depth and warmth that is always counterbalanced by freshness. Moss, more moss, amber and labdanum are added in the base, and the overall impression is amazing. The depth of green never turns dark, like a deep forest with sunshine breaking through the tree tops. the blending is masterful, silage and projection good on my skin, and the longevity brilliant at close to nine hours. Cartier's all-time masterpiece, and an iconic fragrance.

On the side of Santos Concentree another wonderful version of the wonderful Santos. This version is perfect in my opinion and as told it keeps the spicy, mossy and animalic soul of the original adding a more refreshing, subtle, green, aromatic, fluid and citrusy beat. The patchouli is still there, just less smoky, earthy and dark while the fragrance itself is lighter, still orangy  but less gummy-resinous. Perfect for daily usage at work and office but absolutely not sporty in the sense of "too much watered down". Classic.

Forget the 'sport' moniker. SANTOS EAU DE SPORT retains some of the original's spicy musky masculine vibe but adds a refreshing twist of dark forest greenery. Mossy and leathery with just a hint of sweetness in the base, it boasts of decent silllage and reminds me somewhat of Jacomo's Anthracite pour homme. Unfortunately it projects more of a 'Tom Selleck' image when my profile is probably closer to a 'Johnny Depp'. But if you're a fan of retro-styled masculines, or sports a lush moustache, this could be a great addition. If you could find some, that is.

Wonderful version to the Santos family. Very similar to Santos but with a citrus note. Great for everyday wear. None of the smokey notes of santos. A wonderful light version of Santos!

Wow! How on Earth was this one discontinued??

It opens with the trademark Santos spice blast, but with a bit of citrus to mellow it out, as it starts to dry down you're treated to a creamy base, thanks to the tonka, vanilla and amber, that blends so perfectly with the spices and citrus. No part of it is overbearing, all elements (spices, citrus, creaminess/sweetness) come through oh so perfectly. Don't let the citrus fool you, this is no Aqua di Gio, this is still just as masculine and spicy as the original Santos, the citrus and vanilla base simply compliment it and help to round it out.

To my nose, this is far better than Santos (original formulation - silver and clear bottle, NOT the black reformulation) and Santos Concentree. But, while you can plainly tell that this is a member of the Santos family, it is the perfect companion for one of its brothers.

If you are a fan of the Santos line, do yourself a favor and get this one
