MC Knickerbocker , Scot of his mark.......
......carries the same, whether at work, in his leisure time at his beloved grass sports with several clubs and a small, usually white, "dimpled" ball. And in addition he wears very sparingly (which he is not when playing golf), "Burberry Sport for Men".
He prefers to travel along the Scottish coast, where the cool sea sends a strong breeze over to him, carried by the wind and fresh to almost odourless.
He likes to eat grapefruits that at least have a good aroma.
When he has finally been put in a hole, he rejoices like a snow king to sink the tee shot into the juniper bush growing at the edge of the hole, and in search of his ball, he releases the green and spicy scent of the wood by striding along and inside it, looking for a slight bend. He finally got it. Strike two follows, but not on the "green", but high up in a cedar.
Softly swearing, he goes to his golf bag and pulls out a new ball. (A penalty point in golf...), but he wanted to save shots, just like in scent.
At the edge of the 9th "hole" he picks a purple flowering mauve branch, which smells like musk, and enjoys it entertainingly.
"What's that smell?" he thinks, "Is it my perfume or this flower?"
Wurstegal, he thinks, and continues his game.
The half-long trousers ending under the knee, which bear his name, do not bother him.
He feels very athletic in the end... first, because he was on the court for a long time (he didn't count the many steps.
Secondly, because he was busy knocking off and punching holes (not to mention the many knee bends in ball searches).
The strokes he counted, finely neatly on a score card.
After the round, he packs his golf gear into his pocket, sprays up some more "Burberry Sport for Men", sniffs his head and makes his way home..... Smell is good, only too sparing..... The Scots may not take it any other way....

More Than Sport
Burberry Sport goes on with a realistic fresh grapefruit scent mingled with orange; it has the zing of grapefruit and the heart of orange. Within ten minutes, spices come out to support it, and it smells great! The spices are well-blended with the grapefruit, so much so that you'd think that a spice-laden grapefruit had fallen off some tree, instead of two separate notes meeting for business somewhere. With a little sweat and time applied, it smells a bit astringent, more spicy-animalic.

It loses its medium projection after about an hour or so, and by 4-5 hours, it is a skin scent. At times, Burberry Sport reminds me of a more mature John Varvitos; fortunately, it has conquered JV's horrific short-gevity. After 5 hours, it comes up around me now and again in an ethereal wafting way, much like Burberry for Men. Odd.

As a skin scent, it's a spicy-grapefruit-animalic-aromatic deal with the grapefruit predominant. The animalic vibe is genuine; at the end of the day, one of my cats is licking my wrists right where this scent was applied. It lasts at least eight hours.

I've not followed the sports fragrance market, so I can't speak with any authority on what they are supposed to do or not do; my general impression is that they are supposed to smell fresh and clean, and cover up light workouts. In this, Burberry Sport does a good job, although I'm hesitant to call it a pure sports fragrance, due to its interesting evolution. I would say it's a sporty fragrance, but it's not stereotypical or ordinary.

The overall effect it has is one of energy, youthfulness, "in" without being snobby, a little daring, and masculine without being overbearing. Finally, the bottle -- although it's plastic, it's one of the most visually appealing and engaging bottles I own. It invites you to open it and hold it.

All around, Burberry Sport is a class act.

Boring and uninspiring
I'm not too convinced that Burberry Sport for Men is indeed a sports fragrance. It's not as fresh as I thought it would be. In fact, this fragrance could be worn in Winter.

Burberry Sport for Men is mostly fizzy and citrusy ginger. Grapefruit seems to be the most dominant accord in this scent pyramid, which smells fairly strong to my nose, especially in the opening. It has a very aquatic feel to it, mostly brought about by the rather synthetic sea water accord and the cedar, which resembles the scent of pencil-shavings.

Luckily the ginger in this fragrance is pleasant and balanced. The ginger is slightly refreshing like ginger ale, and has a rather spicy edge. I can't seem to detect the wheat note. It doesn't register to my nose.

Unfortunately I find this fragrance quite generic and boring. It's not something I'd particularly want to smell on a man in the gym. It leaves me feeling disappointed and uninspired.

I do however like the bottle design. I find the black rubber outer-casing very handy and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

The lasting strength is relatively good, as is the sillage, which may perhaps be in certain situations, a little too strong and in-your-face. All in all, Burberry Sport for Men is passable in my books, but definitely not an exciting new release.
