Reviews of L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme Sport

A pleasant flanker of the legendary L'Eau d'Issey, though its necessity is not certain.

Anyhow...on its own merits, Homme Sport is a minimalist scent that doesn't smell so. The opening is an active lifestyle friendly hit of citrus, leading to the subtle nutmeg heartnote and finishing up with a starchy woody-green sensation, thanks to the vetiver and cedar.

It's pleasant and wearable for active "sport" occasions, but can be worn as a casual daytime scent as well. L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme Sport is interesting and polarizing, but is it a necessary fragrance in the world of men's colognes, generally speaking? Hmmm....

Buying this scent was one of my more regrettable blind buys earlier on in my fragrance collecting journey. I purchased a 6.8 ML...I know i know...What was I thinking right? Who blind buys a 6.8 bottle of LDS? The same crazy guy who would blind buy a 6.8ml bottle of VERSACE Eros...Boy was I way more impulsive when it came to purchasing frags. Needless to say I still have a huge portion of this scent left over (Eros as well...LOL) and have begun using it as an air freshener. And to be honest Im not sure if I like my space smelling like it either.

I have to admit my appreciation for the original LD has waned over the years. It was at one time one of my favorites and now I can't get the smell of cat urine out of my mind when i smell it. My main issue with the Sport version is that while it doesn't retain every element of the original it definitely has the original's cat urine accord. This scent is toned down but still very present. Having that element in a scent meant for "sport" would mean wearing a scent which smells of urine when your body temp is at its highest. Im not sure if that's a great idea to you but after one use of it at the gym, I haven't worn it back there since.

Another huge issue with this scent is performance. It is a very fleeting fragrance which you will have to apply liberally to smell after 4 hours. I think there are many others from the house's Summer line which would be better alternatives to this for "sports" like activities. A disappointment in almost every aspect from smell, to versatility, to use of notes and performance.

Simply put- If u wear this around someone who owns a cat they would probably think your cat doesn't like you...lol

I don’t know why L’Eau d’Issey PH would need a sports version – it has been pretty much of a sports-like fragrance since its inception. But, then. Issey Miyake has produced only seventeen or eighteen flankers of L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme, so maybe they aren’t overdoing the flanker thing…

The first time I tested L’Eau d’Issey PH Sport, the opening presented to me a full, piercing citrus note. That was the note that stayed with me through almost the complete run of the fragrance. I think the piercing quality of the citrus was helped by the vetiver and cedar from the base. It was not an impressive demonstration because the citrus was somewhat of the the Lemon Pledge variety. The next several times I tested it, I would have preferred the first version… Instead of a direct citrus, all I could smell was a very synthetic grapefruity version - something reminiscent of several Calvin Kline scents of the past two decades.

This sport version does remind me a bit of the original L’Eau d’Issey PH, except that Sport seems to be missing the aquatic (or possibly aldehydic) notes that fill out the citruses of the original. More’s the loss: This one doesn’t have any of the quirky character that of my old tried and true L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme. It’s not a bad fragrance, but it’s totally redundant.

Salutation.

After Dior Homme Sport,Roadster Sport and Armani Code Sport this is fourth sport fragrnce in my collection. L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Sport definitely brings back good old memories with the Original Version.In my mind It is better than Givenchy Play Sport,Kenzo Sport,Chrome Sport but less subtle than Dior and Roadster sport. A nice lemony type fresh scent.simple clean scent that clings very close to the skin.this kind of scents making you feel better about yourself. Summery,Inoffensive,Clean, Citrusy,Soft,Enjoyable, Casual and Uplifting.

It begins with fresh notes,juicy grapefruit and bergamot along with leather notes.the dry down are so safe and calm with vetiver and cedar and with a hint of amber which results so nice but nothing spectacular scent in my book.citrusy notes are so dominant here and i love it.if you enjoy the original version but prefer something softer and less spicy than it,you should try this one.suitble for SUMMER CASUAL use.totally a good choice,especially if the very strong smells of most mens colognes make you sick.ladies love it.

Sillage?Average.

Longevity?About 4 hours on my skin.

A very cheap deodorant smelling fragrance that has very little to offer. Hard believe Jacques Cavallier is the nose behind this one. This is one of the worst even among the generally not-so-impressive ''sport'' fragrances. If you're after one, look at the ones by Dior, Chanel or even Lanvin.
I'd stay away from this one.

The problem with this is that it has the minimum longevity. I can only smell it in its bottle. The minute I apply it, it just evaporates. I would love to return it, if I could
