      Apart from a notable few fragrances, I can't say I'm exactly thrilled by the shortlist. Gucci by Gucci pour Homme Sport? Burberry Sport for men? Pretty wretched stuff imho... Let's hope the eventual winners are worthy.

      I was surprised to see Gucci by Gucci pour homme sport homme to be among these fragrances. Well...it is a under the "people's choice award" so, thats good to know! While I do enjoy the fragrance, I tore it to shreds in my review-video because it's "not innovating, not distinctive, not interesting, but not terrible." lol

      I really look forward to the results! Thanks Grant!
