    Default The Mythical Chanel Antaeus Sport Cologne

    I snapped this out of the June 1988 US copy of GQ.

    Does anyone have this or remember seeing it? I imagine it may been US only because of the 'cologne' tag.

    I own this. One of the better Sport fragrances along with Santos Eau de Sport by Cartier.

    I have it as well, but only a small "mini" bottle. It is glorious. Don't let the "Sport" in the name mislead you - this one is actually stronger and projects a lot more than the regular Antaeus. Absolutely love this one, wish I could locate a bigger bottle...

    I have it too.

    It's perfect for those who find the regular edt a little too strong, like me, I's still Antaeus though - just a smoother version, with surprisingly good longevity and projecton. I highly recommend it.

    Purchased a 3/4 full tester from a perfume vendor who didn't want to sell it to me.
    Gave him what he asked $35.00, a steal, and it is a slightly lighter version of Antaeus.
    Thanks for reminding me, I will have to do a side-by-side comparison with a vintage bottle
    that still has 20 ml remaining.
    I smell marshmallows!

    Thanks. It's a 100ml spray. In truth, I've looked every day for six months!

    I have a mini bottle of the sport and a full bottle of the current formulation. Between the two the Sport is slightly better but when my mini bottle runs out I won't be sad since Antaeus current version is so good. The Sport is a little smoother, especially at the top. This was my first Chanel scent and since I've become a fan of the house.

    I agree with most everyone's comments, this was a pleasant surprise when I got a sample from a kind Basenoter. In fact, it's a bit 'easier' to wear, here in warm Miami, than the original. The 'sport' elements in this are not annoying & trite.

    I received it today. Its similar to Antaeus, but smoother and lighter, with a honeyed patchouli and woody note so far. This seems more woody and less herbal.

    Default Re: The Mythical Chanel Antaeus Sport Cologne

    I gave this a full wearing, This would actually work as a fragrance today because of its rose-patch-sandalwood notes

    Default Re: The Mythical Chanel Antaeus Sport Cologne

    I have worn this several times since receiving it. This is much more wearable than the original. The original is very mossy and green. The sport is more floral and woody. The sandalwood note I find is very dominant in it and gives it a balmy mellow vibe. If they reissued Sport again, with more sandalwood and rose with a bit of incense, this would be a hit.

    Interesting - I missed the prominent sandalwood. I gave away my sample to an Antaeus fan a couple weeks ago. It's not really my type of scent, I must admit.

    I have a decant of this one and i like it much better than the regular Antaeus. I wonder why it was discontinued, it has a classic leathery vibe but much more relaxed.

    Santos Sport is another interesting and unusal Sport fragrance Hednic. I remember that on my former collection days i won an auction of it, but at that time i didn't appreciated the galbanum on it and ended selling it.Too bad, i guess that today i'd like it.

    My little decant of Antaeus Sport is long gone. I enjoyed it. I have a full bottle of Cartier's Santos Sport, I find it to be one of the best "sport" scents...really enjoy wearing it.

    I got reacquainted with ANTAEUS Sport Cologne after being without it for nearly 2 years (I sold it off for a good price back then). And my previous opinion of "nominal difference, not worth it" is no longer. It's smoother. More wearable to my nose. This is amazing. Not letting go of it again!

    I have similar impressions, and I also find a contrast between the opening, where Antaeus Sport shines, and the base, where Antaeus has the advantage. I fell hard for Antaeus Sport when I first tried it, but over time I have started to prefer Antaeus slightly because I get better longevity.

    OMG. If you ever let go of it, two things:

    1. give up your BN membership
    2. CALL ME, PM ME, EMAIL ME - I'll take that bottle off your hands

    Great stuff the legends are made of. 'Nuff said.

    I would have to agree I find Sport less heavy on the oakmoss and castoreum, leaning more woody. Original Antaeus has more potency, probably adding a few extra hours. But... I find I prefer Sport for the overall impression.

    Still sealed and not planning to part with it anytime soon. But I'll keep you in mind if things change.

    I assume you got more Antaeus Sport that you're testing from, in addition to the sealed one?

    Like Jason in post #10 above, I looked daily for months to find a full bottle after I had tested it from a mini. I eventually found one, and then I found a second one accidentally a couple weeks later, so I'm the happy owner of a backup!

    There's a bottle for sale on Ebay now with no cap for $300 that's been there for a while.

    Yes indeed, I have one partially used and one sealed backup. The used one was from eBay about 2 years ago... got super lucky as the seller had a blurry small photo for a listing that just said "chanel antaeus" (nothing else) -- I took a chance in what I thought was "sport cologne" on the label. The sealed one was a direct purchase from someone (not eBay, BN, etc). Where did you find yours?

    I got both of my Antaeus Sport bottles on eBay - 100 ml sprays, no box - about $300 each. I had initially bought a mini on eBay, 7.5 ml, then three 10-ml decants from Basenoter SexySmells. They all smelled the same (I have finished the mini, and a couple of the decants).
