Reviews of Antaeus Sport

Mesmerizing Antaeus flanker. This sport version is a little softer, especially in the opening. I think I may like it even more than the original release, but it's not as strong or complex. It's a slightly toned down version that's a little easier to pull off, at least soon after spraying.

It seems to add a touch of sweetness in place of the mossy bite of the original. Maybe it was discontinued in part for being too similar to the original, but for me it's a nice complement to the original to have in the rotation.

A true relative of Antaeus… I love it, but I’m not at all sure it’s a sport fragrance. I mean… Castoreum and leather in a sports fragrance? …Takes a lot of believing!

Antaeus Sport joins the ranks of the best masculine fragrances I’ve experienced. It is a less dense version of the classic, vintage Antaeus (not the present Antaeus, which is a shadow of its former self). Antaeus Sport makes vintage Antaeus more wearable and a little bit cleaner without removing the quality and panache of the original… yet it retains the vintage Antaeus’s sophisticated sillage and lasting longevity. I didn’t think it possible but I like this one better than the vintage Antaeus.

A big thank you to the generosity of the lover of power scents / former Basenoter who provided me with this excellent experience of sampling of Antaeus Sport Cologne, and I’m treasuring every drop of it. Two thumbs way, way up!

Probably looked better on paper than what was actually produced. This was one heck of a job to pull off being that Anteus is such a dark and mysterious fragrance. Ultimately didn't work but is a nice edition to my collection.

Medal worthy sports flanker

A crisp citrus-bergamot-mint opening is soon softened by a jasmine note. In the drydown a very nice rose appears, whose sweetness is dampened by a white pepper counterpoint; then a delightful raisinous nose gives it added depth and character. A beautiful gentle patchouli emerges in the base, not harsh or sharp. For the last couple of hours it is oakmoss, however, that dominates the scene, again a softened and very much a milder version of the usually harsh chypre note. It is as if Jacques Polge wanted to demonstrate that these otherwise harsh ingredients can be softened in the right hands. As sports flanker this is smoother, gentler and more restrained that the original. Silage and projection are very good, as is the longevity of over six hours. One of the very few sports version that I prefer to the original.

Simply put, a lighter, smoother version of the wonderful Antaeus. Less herbal and more woodsy with a different sandalwood note. Also of note, towards the end, Antaeus Sport smells a lot like Versailles pour Homme by Jean Desprez's styrax.
