    Sportissimo by Galimard

    Working my way through all the Galimard fragrances , Sportissimo is one of the last for now. A confusing contradiction is seeing how Galimard claims to be active since 1747 (there's even one fragrance called 1747) , but according to other sources (Fragrantica), their first fragrances in the database are from the 1960s. How can that be?

    SOTD: Sportissimo , a gym frag for men, at least the name suggests this. "Mugwort, bergamot and rosemary topped with mint tremble around a luminous heart weaved of lavender and orange blossoms; the base is built on rich materials, sandalwood, cedar wood and musk revealing an irresistible seduction."
    It doesn't smell bad at all. Nothing remarkable but sometimes that is not necessary.
    Drydown is actually quite alluring.. I'd definitely say this is unisex, despite it being targeted to men. Quite traditionally, Galimard doesn't do 'unisex' .
