Reviews of Adidas

Adidas is a nice forgotten old school fragrance that truly represents the 80s sport spirit: It's refreshing in a clean aromatic/herbal way. Not a single drop of sweetness, It's soap, sharp and bright. Reminds me fragrances like Aramis Tuscany (vintage), Boss Number 1 (without the pronounced honey note of earlier versions) and even Captain Molyneux (although not as talcum powdery). Solid fragrance, should be in any old school fan's collection.

First of all, this is not a sports-frag. At all. In fact it is anything but.

This is what I tell myself I can detect:

Adidas is a herbal/aromatic/leathery chypre in the vein of Tuscany Per Uomo (1984 - although a fougére) with a suede-like worn-leather note throughout, reminding of a well-used indoor sports gym filled with worn leather soccer-, basket-, hand- and volley-balls and people ALL wearing those well-worn retro indoor Adidas suede-sneakers (if that makes sense), whispering florals and a dry herbal juniper contributing to the scents personality, all resting on an earthy warm and slightly dirty bed of oakmoss and vetiver, with musk and ambergris providing the dirt.
The lavender and dry citrus evokes a clean and very nice soapy feel. Like a crisp white bar of french milled soap.

This stuff is solid!
Adidas (today commonly known as Adidas Classic) is an unpretentious and classy masculine fragrance, launched by the sports-brand in 1985.
Originally made by Margaret Astor (D) and distributed by Beecham Cosmetics (later Quintessence) (US), this well-made masculine has never gotten the attention and recognition it truly deserves.

It is not a complex fragrance, but it's gentlemanly, well made and certainly unique enough to stand on it's own.
