Reviews of L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme Sport Mint

Very similar to L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme Sport, with a nicer bottle and color of liquid within!

Tart citrus opening leads to a fresh, airy mint experience paired with geranium's rosy, lemony nuance. White wood is a rather unusual choice in this scent, adding a bright, young wood note alongside of the vetiver.

I'd summarize this flanker as a green, aromatic citrus. It takes a decidedly less pungent direction without the Japanese yuzu, and in the end it echoes - in bits and pieces - other "sport" scents that are out in the market (e.g. Armani Code Sport).

Great to own if you are a hardcore collector, but check out the regular Homme Sport as well.

I like this. I collected all three SPORT flankers and I really like this one. The mint indeed makes a difference.

The Miyake flankers are a little challenging because they are so close. This stands out. Not heads and shoulders above, but it is noticeably different.

Still, there is no need for this flanker, but it does smell fantastic. Super fresh, cool and sporty indeed.

Forgot to mention the unlit cigarette note. Me likey :)

Issey Miyake is definitely one of my favorite houses because they create fresh fragrances very well for great prices!

This one in my opinion is only suitable for summer. those hot sunny summer days!
It's like a cold and extremely fresh breeze coming from citrus farm of your imagination while you're suffering under summer's sun!
A place that there are lots of citrus trees specially grapefruit surrounding you while you're resting under one of those trees and eating a fresh grapefruit and a soft breeze brings the smell of mint from your small mint farm nearby!
That's it!
Very simple but very pleasant and energetic as well.

The opening is a tart, fresh and slightly bitter grapefruit smell along with green, almost grassy and very cool mint right beside it.
After a while mint settles down and you will have a simple fresh, watery, bitter and tart grapefruit smell and green feeling for a couple of hours and finally in the base some shy floral notes joining in to add more pleasant feeling to the scent.

Very simple with decent quality.
Projection is average and longevity is around 4 hours on my skin. I don't care about other people opinions! I love fresh and tart citruses in the summer without getting sweet.

Smells like Sport, but it doesn't have that synthetic vibe running through it. The opening is fantastic and if it stayed that way for any amount of time this would be the definitive iteration of the original. Once that fresh mint and top go away after about 30 minutes you're left with a lighter version of Sport. It's by no means a bad fragrance, but with such a great opening it could have been outstanding. It's still probably worth picking up a bottle if you want a light summer fragrance. Wait until it becomes highly discounted.
