Spicy, ginger opening and then just a nice, modern scent afterwards. I was surprised at the longevity I got out of this one, considering the reviews. Has more formalness to it than I was expecting with the Sport label.
It's a sport fragrance based around ginger. Better than Chrome Sport, but not even close to Dior Homme Sport when it comes to smell quality. I could see it as a very casual scent to run around in, but that's about it. Smells decent on paper, but this doesn't do well on the skin. It has a bitterness to the ginger that absolutely ruins it. Doesn't project or last very long which is probably a good thing.

Burberry Sport is a pretty underrated fragrance. A simple sporty fragrance here. I get a blast of grapefruit and fresh juicy ginger in the opening, that dries down into a musky cedar base. Simple, yet a bit common. Smells similar to YSL L'homme to an extent, because of the juicy ginger note. When I say "juicy ginger", think the ginger you get when you buy those prepackaged things of sushi at some grocery stores; they come with these juicy ginger slices that are so good, you could eat them plain.
Longevity is often complained with this one, but I can't complain. I get 6+ hours usually, with decent projection.
Following the greenish fragrance formula of success, Burberry Sport is a well done mass market scent. Sparkling top notes, drying down to a green/spicy (in a 212 way) accord.
Noticed a metallic smell too, that brings some class to this sporty fragrance.
A good Dior Homme Sport rip off
I always highly regarded Burberry as a house that has a style of its own, but making rip offs? Really? Some do that, but not Burberry...oops - it happened. So, Burberry Sport is a good rip off with a bit tender projection, is a bit more dry and in my opinion also lacks the quality that DHS has, putting originality aside. If a person finds herself in a position of being unable to afford DHS, but really likes this type of frags, Burberry Sport is not a mistake but a good investment, otherwise just a rip off, albeit not a bad one.
Pros: Longevity, price
