    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
    Cons: none"

    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.

    Smooth, but not amazing

    I've been looking for a grapefuit/ ginger sports cologne after enjoying Burberry Sport a few years ago. While I like Burberry Sport, I wanted something different and of a higher quality. This led me to Dior Homme Sport 2008, which holds a reputation as the citrus and ginger king.

    DHS opens with all the promise of a great fragrance- but only for a moment. Fresh lemon dominates and is wonderful, with just a touch of florals.

    The ginger opens up soon after and the floral notes, iris, begin to strengthen. The ginger is both weak and sharp, and plays second fiddle to the florals. The iris in this fragrance doesn't do it for me- it's very synthetic, feminine, and plastic-like. These two notes work together, counter balancing each other, but the combination is unappealing.

    Afterwards, powder begins to emerge, mixed with the plastic notes.

    Eventually some woods notes make an appearance, but it may be my imagination because they're very, very weak.

    All in all DHS is a plastic mess that I really wanted to enjoy, but cannot. I can acknowledge that others would really enjoy it, however, and the notes do flow well, but it's not what I'm looking for.

    Pros: Great fresh lemon, but only for a moment
    Cons: Mainly plastic, synthetic florals, ginger not as strong as I was made to believe "

    My favorite Sport Fragrance to Date

    A very refreshing blast of powdery citrus on top...not "old person" powdery at all the iris is done very lightly in the background. Not really anything like Dior Homme, but a good counterpart for summer wear.

    Pros: Interesting take on Sport Fragrance
    Cons:
