    Default Scent for golf?

    I am an avid golfer, as you may have guessed from my screen name. I normally don't wear any fragrance when I play golf, but lately I've been thinking about what may be suitable for wearing for sports (specifically golf).

    Thoughts?

    Beene's Bowling Green? Acqua Di Parma? Something clean, starchy, fresh as the air around you?

    Something with vetiver in it. Original Vetiver by Creed or Vétiver Extraordinaire by Frederic Malle.

    I am an avid golfer as well and watching The Masters as I type this.

    I usually wear CDG-Vettiverru, Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport, or Original Vetiver - Creed

    Exactly. This is sporty, green, and overall a better match to the golf course than Original Vetiver. The name alone conjures up images of Par 4.

    I love golf too! I don't have a specific scent, but I like wearing heavier stuff when I golf so I get a good whiff every time I tee off.

    Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet works great for me on the links.

    Too Funny! I actually like the way the couple of Lacoste scents smell that I've tested. I've just been scared off of purchasing by the general lack of longevity.

    Not much of a golf player, but I heartily recommend Polo Sport by Ralph Lauren.

    Nice clean, oudoors fragrance.

    FragranceX has a sample vial of Bobby Jones for about $3. I'm going to have to order it. Thanks for all the suggestions. This has been an interesting thread. It along with Allure Homme Sport and Mugler (which I'm already trying to find a tester of) are the only ones that may be in my budget at some point. As much as I'd love to try the Creeds, I just can't right now.

    Lacoste Essentials and Bvlgari Extreme. Both remind me of being on the green.

    Default Re: Scent for golf?

    For me, the scents I always associate with golf are Creeds. Since I moved to Augusta, I have been blessed to attend the Masters for the past 5 years. I almost always wear one of these three to Augusta National: GIT, SMW or MI (one I no longer have any more).

    I don't go to every round. This year, I took my son on Thursday and I went solo to two practice rounds.
    One of my docs was kind enough to let me use his tickets for Thursday.

    Booster by Lacoste. Most of the Lacoste fragrances for men suck, but this one is brilliant. You must like mint though.

    VE and Guerlain Vetiver get my vote as well

    Paul Smith Story would also work quite magnificently!

    It does make sense to wear something sporty or green considering the environment..... id like to add Paco Rabanne Pour homme to the already effecient list

    I am a once a week golfer and the best fragrance for me is something that will last through 4 hours of mildly strenuous workout. Also it helps to have a bright uplifting fragrance to reinforce, refresh and provide a positive outlook in the face of utter frustration and humiliation. I like:

    Versace pour Homme
    Signoricci
    Mugler Cologne

    Racquet's Formula by Penhaligon's. Definitely my first choice after reading all of my other first choices already mentioned.

    Ralph Lauren Polo Blue perhaps?

    I have GOT to find a tester of Mugler. I keep seeing it mentioned over and over lately. Buzzlepuff, I did test Versace and really liked it. I could see it as a good choice.

    Cool Re: Scent for golf?

    I don't golf. My old man was pretty damn good at it, though. Perhaps something traditional?

    I only have some samples, but I agree that Penhaligon's Racquets would be a great call.

    Choosing from my full sized bottles, I select Guerlain Vetiver more than any other for days on the links.
