    Thumbs up Prada LUNA ROSSA SPORT = Le Male + Luna Rossa + Lolita Au Masculin = a pure perfection

    Guys, that's pure heaven! However, I can't say this is a sporty version of Luna Rossa, but an another lavender fantasy of Daniela Andrier . A mix of vanilla and tonka from Le Male with a lavender from Luna Rossa and creamy balsamic note from Lolita Lempicka Au Masculine.

    Do not test Luna Rossa Sport on a paper, do it on skin!

    It starts off with a combo of vanilla and tonka, and berries with a drop of ginger make this old union more modern. I would name this stage Le Male Sport. But wait for 10-20 minutes and lavender from the regular Luna Rossa comes to the stage changing the direction of the scent. This sweet, creamy and a bit gingery lavender smells really heavenly reminding of Lolita Au Masculine and Bvlgari BLV Pour Homme dry down.

    To me Luna Rossa Sport is the best sport flanker come out after Dior Homme Sport 2008. Good quality, nice longevity, thoughtful development and the beauty of the dry down - a winning set of qualities to me.

    This looks like a safe blind buy for me.

    How prominent is the ginger Anton pan??

    I tried this two weekends ago too and I thought it was phenomenal. The ginger is not that strong it. It's hard to detect the ginger by itself in the composition.

    Thank you so much for this tip, AntonPan.

    Your assessment of Lanvin L'Homme Sport was spot on.

    No kidding. Vanilla and tonka doesn't sound "sporty" to me. Doesn't even sound like a summer fragrance....more like a new fragrance that needed a name and "Sport" was available to add to Luna Rossa. It may be a decent scent...but this is an example of a product that doesn't sound like the name will match up, and like they shoudln't have used "Sport" as the flanker name for it.

    Will try...and may possibly like, who knows.....but I'm not expecting it to be a "Sport" fragrance, that's for sure.

    Smelled those recently. The only one that stood out was the extreme.

    Gotta agree with Anton. Tried this yesterday along with several others, and it was the clear winner. I really enjoy the original, and this is a great flanker.

    I've tried it 2 times so far. IMO it is best of Luna Rossa trio. Really smells like Le Male + some parts of original Luna Rossa. I like it and my girlfriend said I smell great like 5x during evening.. (interesting is that she was indifferent to Le Male). My decant of Le Male is almost empty and I was debating whether should I buy whole bottle (because reformulated version of Le Male is not as good as bottle from 10 years ago - it lost huge part of its "dirty vibe") but I will buy Luna Rossa Sport instead.

    In my opinion this is the best of the line so far.

    There is nothing sport about it. I don't like it, too sweet in a powdery way on my skin; and indeed it reminds of Le Male.

    If you have Extreme, you won't need this. It's basically the same, just a tad weaker. And sweeter. I own both the original LR and Extreme, and this Sport is worse than both of them. Typical case of cashing on success. Redundant.

    I finally got a chance to retry this on the skin. My gosh, amazing fragrance. It reminds me of Le Male (Vintage), with a grain of Reflection Man/Terrible.

    Loved it! Great job Prada.

    Awesome sillage and longevity.

    Edit. My gosh, I need to have this, one of my favorite releases of the last 5 years.

    This smells a lot like Marina De Bourbon Rouge Royal. This is a better version because of the somewhat barbershop vibe along with the slight Prada signature soapy note. Like it.

    I tested both in same time and there is nothing Le Maleish in Extreme. I also found Extreme to be sweeter and heavier one. Sport is like transparent and more sophisticated Le Male. I like Sport but didnt care about Extreme (and neither original LR) Its funny how our perception of scents is different..

    Seeing your thread title Anton of "Le Male + Luna Rossa + Lolita Au Masculin =" immediately made me think of Ultra Male! I'm doing my first full wearing today and it's definitely giving me a bit of that anise vibe from Au Masculin.(albeit MUCH sweeter and toned down from that of L.L's) Even though no anise is listed

    To me it smelled like the extreme drydown of Le Male, like when I'd smell the collar of my shirt the day after wearing it.
    Vanilla and tonka are far more subdued and the mint (in this case disguised as juniper) and lavender are much more prominent.

    Might be worth checking out for those who find Le Male obnoxious, it's like a Le Male you could wear to even the most conservative of offices.

    As you mention above, I am one who finds Le Male obnoxious, but I do like Luna Rossa Sport very much. If I spray too much LR Sport it goes a little too sweet for me, but sprayed lightly it is sublime. The lady in my life likes it too which is a big plus.

    Curiously Luna Rossa Sport layers nicely with any green patchouli - it's a blending of opposites. I tried a light spritz of Nasomatto Hindu Grass over the top of LRSport and the combo works really well. If layering you have to go really light with both. The Hindu Grass amps up the green aspects and subdues the vanilla in Luna Rossa Sport while the patchouli turns the sport powdery aspects into a great night time woods based fragrance. I think any good light patchouli fragrance would layer well over Luna Rossa Sport to tone down and green up the vanilla and lavender. Zegna Javanese Patchouli, Hindu Grass, Villoresi Patchouli, or SMN Patchouli would all work nicely as a subtle top layer. But, Luna Rossa Sport is good by itself too - it is one of the few powdery scents that I really like. Like a sporty version of Tonka Imperiale by Guerlain. Those who liked original vintage Tiffany for Men and/or Tiffany Sport for Men should try this one as I think its a modern take off on those tonal ideas.

    By the way, I like original Luna Rossa, don't care for the LR Extreme (didn't care for the cinnamon), but like the LR Sport best of the three.

    I was at my local Sephora and tested LR Sport and I agree. I prefer the Extreme version better. Since I already have the Extreme, I won't be adding the Sport version.
