Many find this fragrance bland, boring and unoriginal, a scent that didn't live up to the expectations set by the original Gucci by Gucci pour Homme. I don't agree. I find Gucci by Gucci Sport a deliciously refreshing scent, perfect for hot Summer days and sporty activities.
This fragrance opens with a watery burst of fizzy grapefruit, mint and greenery. It reminds me slightly of cooling cucumber, however it may be the cypress that makes me feel this way.
The sillage is moderate, so it doesn't overpower. It just lingers softly on the skin, catching whiffs of it here and there.
I like the sporty concept, although for some I know, they find it too predictable and overdone. Let's just say that I live with a man that frequents the gym quite regularly, and when he wears heavy deoderants or colognes it makes him smell absolutely repulsive. However lighter scents, like Cool Water by Davidoff, Hei by Alfred Sung and fragrances like this one, last the duration of the workout and don't clash with a male's natural perspiration.
The cardamon, ambrette seeds and patchouli gives this fragrance a wonderfully grounded earthiness. However for those that detest patchouli, I guarantee that in this fragrance it does not dominate. The scent remains fresh and light throughout the composition.
Gucci by Gucci Sport keeps growing on me. Its clean, menthol-like scent, makes me long for the hot weather and hot men. Cheeky I know, it's the fragrance doing the talking, not me I swear.
