I never cared for any sport fragrance until I came across Dior Homme Sport. The Dior Homme DNA is present, but the iris takes a backseat as a sparkling lemon note accentuated by a zesty ginger accord provides an invigorating opening. This wonderful combination is not too well-blended, which means it is easier to pick out individual notes. It is also somewhat linear compared to the Dior Homme line, which makes it all the more a right candidate for those summer days. It has average projection and average to good longevity, but for some reason the performance peaks up with heat. I passionately recommend it to those seeking a bottle worthy summer fragrance and are tired of the generic modern aquatics over-saturating the market. In fact, I passionately recommend it to everybody.
This fragrance by far is one of the best lemon based fragrance for me.
In the opening you can smell fresh and so natural lemon mixed with some ginger. the ginger note warm it up just a little and it's not as spicy and warm as you may think.
In the dry down the grapefruit note join in with only hint of sweetness in the background.
It's a linear fragrance so lemon and ginger with hint of grapefruit and sweetness, all the way through!
Very good projection and longevity.
Very zesty and incredibly fresh!
Opens with a distinct lemon & citrus vibe. Quite an invigorating classic lemon Eau de Cologne (or even an aquatic) type feel. Also has a strong ginger presence throughout. Spicy peppery like ginger in the drydown especially. As others have noted, it's very much like a refreshing drink on a hot summer day (with ice cubes, even..)
Recommended for hot weather mostly, can be refreshing in humid weather, perhaps. However, if price is an issue, there are alternative options available. It's not groundbreaking but it's still quite good. Not bad from Dior but in my opinion there are other alternatives out there. Try this one out in summer for sure!
refreshing summer fragrance
Opens with a beautiful natural lemon with a hint of ginger in the background for freshness and some spice.There are florals as well but its is mainly dominated with the ginger/ lemon combo. Its really has the ability to make you feel fresh and cool and smell great when the tempters are unbearable. It last and projects pretty well. I can still smell it on my skin 6 to 8 hours after applying.I live in sub tropical climate and this is a great scent to have in your summer rotation it really cools you off.
Christian Dior is an amazing house and this is another one of there many great scents.
Pros: sport/flanker worthy of name sake
That sport cologne scent, and then the iris
This has that classic sport scent smell (whatever that really is)...sort of a bit dull. Then, a bit of Iris and grapefruit, or other citrus. Its a decent smell, but I am not a fan of iris, even iris goes sporty. Longevity and projection good for its class.
