    H & R's Fragrance Guide classifies this as a "Citrus Fantasy" fragrance, although the listed notes are those of a classic chypre. My guess is that the oakmoss and patchouli in the base notes are so understated as to leave the dominant effect one of an enriched and enhanced citrus. It's wonderfully fresh and invigorating, but not in that bland 90's aquatic way --- Rabanne's Eau de Sport has plenty of distinctive personality. For those who lament its passing, I recommend Pierre Cardin's Insatiable, which has a very similar overall effect and many of the same ingredients. The listed notes are:

    Top Notes: Lemon, mandarin, bergamot, petitgrain, lavender, green complex, artemisia
    Mid Notes: Jasmine, juniper, estragon, rose, orris, carnation
    Base Notes: Oakmoss, fir, cedar, patchouli, vetiver, musk, leather

    I wont add a review as its 25+ years since i wore it , it is my alltime favourite scent and my only signature sent i ever had , the reason for writing is just to say ive recently tried Penhaligons "Juniper Sling" and i cant say they smell the same as its been so long , but the opening notes brought back memorys and reminded me so much of "Sport" , so if theres any sport lovers still out there , maybe give that a try :)

    I wore this again for the first time in years. I generally dislike any scent with the word "sport" in it's title... This is probably the only scent that proves an exception to the rule. It starts off very bland, but quickly develops to a grassy green scent with a woody undertone. Very nice scent that while maybe not groundbreaking is still very wearable and distinctive at the same time. At last a sport scent that is actually worth wearing. I guess I may be using this more often. 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5.

    Sport de Paco Rabanne is by no means some trifle to be discarded into the deepest recesses of ones ottoman, but it is flawed on a number of crucial levels.

    The opening is undoubtedly an excellent creation, it's a zingy, refreshing citrus experience, complete with a comforting herbal accompaniment. Had the remaining phases of Sport been anywhere near as accomplished, I would have been in the presence of greatness - a true masterpiece.

    Although my skin is as arid and unforgiving as the Mojave desert, I do expect a fragrance to put up a little bit of a fight. Sadly SdPR has exhaled for the last time within about three hours, and by that time it has ceased to exhibit anything like the intriguing presence that the opening has suggested.It sits close to the skin, its lively attributes are all but decapitated, and the resulting blend is distantly herbal, lightly powdered, and dare I say it, a little monotonous.

    This has long since been discontinued, and I certainly am not sufficiently aroused to undertake an exhaustive search or pay the increasingly premium prices being demanded.

    Now THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is what a "sport" fragrance is all about. Fresh, grassy, invigorating, zingy, all kinds of other things and totally pleasant. I dunno why Paco Rabanne got rid of this, but it's damn good. In fact, Sport de Paco Rabanne is now my favorite "sport" fragrance. It takes out everything I hated about the original and makes it pleasant and youthful; at the same time unique and refreshing. I get mainly some subtle fruity notes, zingy citrus, and smooth patchouli and vetiver. Sport de Paco Rabanne also lasts a while on me - up to 7 hours! That's an excellent lifespan for a "sport" fragrance, and for a fragrance like this to be released at the apex of the powerhouse era, I'm really not surprised!

    Highly recommended.

    I must admit, when I saw the "Sport" name I was completely prepared not to like this one. In the opening half hour, I rather smugly confirmed that this one is for college students and not for an older guy like me. But then....then....it started to evolve from the initial rush of citrus and became a creamy, woody, sandalwoody fragrance. I must say, it was a pleasant, surprising evolution. Excellent. Both sillage and longevity are also excellent. Sorry for unfairly prejudging you, Sport de Paco Rabanne.
