    Default Does it exists any great or even a masterpiece "sport" scent?

    When i look all those "sport" flankers i don´t even think of testing any of them. I really don´t like the idea of labeling a scent as a sport. I want to decide by myself which scent i consider to be proper for casual wear. But maybe i may be missing some masterpiece out there due to my opinion. So guys, is there any good scent labeled as "sport" "fresh" "summer" that is worth trying?

    Among other, Dior Homme Sport, Polo Sport come to my mind - maybe no masterpieces, but way above the average level of what one might expect from "yet another generic sporty flanker".

    Sport? No. Usually affixing "sport" to the moniker means watered down, weak, aquatic and fizzy, none of which are usually qualities that improve a fragrance. But I still try them if I like the original. Someday, a great sport may come along. Mitsouko Sport is the one I'm waiting for.

    Masterpieces are hard to come by, especially when it's trying to run on the tails of an original composition, but I'm fond of Jaipur Homme Fresh, and several of the Guerlain ones such as Vetiver Frozen or the feminine L'Instant d'un Ete.

    Sorry, I can't come up with anything "great".

    Another vote for Tiffany. The word "sport" has no meaning when applied to it. Tiffany for Men Sport is a really wonderful, junipery, daily wear fragrance.

    I'm with you here - I strongly dislike marine notes or woody ambers, which pretty much excludes all sport scents.

    I'm not a fan of any of the so called Sport fragrances. The last one I liked was Lanvin L'Homme sport. But wasn't very much impressed with it. I find Aramis Life a bit better but it is not labelled as a sport frag. But I find it to be different from others and IMHO it has a sport vibe attached to it.
    I too am waiting for a 'masterpiece' in the genre.

    I think Tom Fords Neroli Portofino could be a pretty good sport scent.

    I could imagine freshening up with that after a good gym session and shower would be pretty nice and refreshing.. Its powerful stuff though.

    I'm still not sure wahy they called it 'sport' as it's nothing like most other sport frags but as a fragrance in its own right it's great.

    I was a fan of Polo Sport when it came out in the early 90's. I keep a bottle for nostalgic purposes but never reach for it.

    I have Allure Homme Sport Cologne <clear bottle>, like it, and use it.

    A few months ago I was gifted Polo Sport Extreme which evidently is discontinued. I was never interested in checking it out, most certainly because of the 'sports' tag to it. It is spicy/peppery and I've got no idea why it was ever marketed as a 'sport' scent. Perhaps I don't understand the tag. I like this one.

    Oh yeah, then there's Guerlain Vetiver Sport. More lemon? Maybe, but imo it's close enough to the regular.

    I like Armani Code Sport. I know a lot of people don't as it is quite different from the original Code.

    I would not call it a masterpiece by any stretch of the word, but it is a really good scent.

    I'm waiting for the weather to warm up so I can wear it again.

    Polo Sport is also a good one, from what I remember.

    The only one I would consider wearing (and have) is Lanvin Sport - really very good

    Keep in mind, the word SPORT is just a form of marketing. It's an easy way to sell fresh scents to guys who know nothing about perfume and think SPORT = MANLY. I'm not bashing so-called Sport-scents, by the way. Chanel Allure Homme Sport is definitely good stuff, and Chanel could have easily named it something like Allure Homme Fraiche. And Versace Pour Homme Eau Fraiche could have easily been named Versace Pour Homme Sport.

    The word Sport is just marketing.

    I like Dior, Armani Code and Kouros Sport. Lanvin is nice too but I like it a little less than I used to.

    If you happen to like the general "sporty" vibe and copious amounts of calone, then sure. I'd imagine that both Allure Homme Sport and Dior Homme sport would fit the bill.

    I tried on Dior Homme sport the other day and got pretty ill and sick from it. The sickening sea-sport-calone-HELL makes me nauseous. Guess that frees me from all of it's kind - money saved.

    Dior Homme Sport 2012. That additional iris note takes it to another level. Beautiful.

    The only "sport" or "light" flanker that I've liked so far is Dior Homme Cologne.

    I've also read good reviews about Rive Gauche PH Light -- it being fresher and with less anise, which sounds nice, but I haven't had any luck finding a sample or bottle.

    Crairborne Sport is fantastic and a HUGE compliment getter.

    Santos Sport is great for hard to find.

    I concur with Dior Homme Sport (both versions) I think it was a mistake for Dior to add the 'Sport' moniker to this wonderful frag. Should have had it's own separate release!

    I enjoyed Armani code sport, more than the original at least

    Although it's not labeled as such, I think of Green Irish Tweed as the ultimate sport scent.
