+1 Allure homme Sport
I came across this thread yesterday and recalled I had an appropriate bottle to offer up. I checked the directory and saw that it took several serious knocks for poor longevity so I passed on mentioning it but since I'd showered earlier and had no where to go took off the cap of my barely used bottle of Claiborne Sport and spritzed away. It's an odd little scent, for sure, and the only thing I've ever smelled in the real world remotely close to its top notes is the purple powdered candy to be found in Pixie Sticks. Strange but in a nice sort of way, after a while the candy gives way to a grassy green and herby concoction that seems to last for hours and hours like an echo that fades away and then returns fainter, but unmistakable. Now, almost 24 hours later I can still make out where it was, more like a footprint in the grass than echo. Nothing spectacular, scent wise, but can be had for a song and, well, seems sporty and easy going to me and lasts longer on some than advertised. Your mileage may vary.
+1 Allure homme Sport
I was ready to hate Allure Homme Sport, but gotta say I kind of like it. It's not anything I reach for often, but it's a good choice if I'm going to be around people that are easily offended by interesting frags.
I called around town before the game, trying to locate samples of some of the recommendations listed here. Scored with Tiffany for Men Sport. Very good stuff, possibly bottle-worthy. Probably bottle-worthy.
When I picked up my female co-worker on the way to the game, she said, "You smell amazing" the second she closed the car door.
I am also very interested in Cartier Santos Sport. Most likely an online buy, since it's been discontinued. It'll take some doing to get my hands on some.
Thanks again to the Basenoters who chimed in. Very helpful stuff. Your advice is what Basenotes is all about.
Polo Sport and Allure Sport.....Gary
I agree with noirwest's Claiborne Sport recommendation. Sport or not, it's one of my favorite warm weather fragrances. In fact, I'm wearing it today in unseasonable 90 degree weather. It smells great and lasts too. Plus, you won't find many other people wearing it.
allure homme sport is ok, i think it's better than allure.
Allure Homme Cologne Sport and Dior Homme Sport
I also like Polo Sport
To this day Claiborne Sport remains in my top 10. It's fresh on many different levels. It's soapy, green, herbal, and ozonic all at the same time. It's one of the few fresh scents that has excellent sillage and longevity on me. It's very distinct and I haven't found any other fragrance that smells like it.
Adidas Deep Impact is sporty, inoffensive, but not totally boring. It's cheap enough to be worth a shot.

There are many fragrances with sport in their name these days. Lightened scents to expand or build on a name. I think "Summer" has become the new "Sport." And there are many fragrances that smell sporty. In my opinion the scent that defines the Sport fragrance category and really launched its's popularity is Polo Sport by Ralph Lauren. Many body washes, deoderants, soap bars also use it's basic aroma. It smells like a shower in a bottle because of it's rather simple, fresh , crisp smell. The citrus notes, mint and seaweed are the stand out notes here. If you haven't had a chance to smell it you should or if it's been some time then a revisit. It is the only cologne that I went through several bottles of during the 90's because for casual use it seemed perfect.
There are heaps of good sports scents.
Benetton Sport is my favourite, closely followed by Calirborne Sport.
Other excellent ones I have are,
Kouros Cologne Sport,
Polo Sport Extreme,
It's a shame there is no Silver Mountain Water Sport.
