Laughing behind the mask...
This one comes from an era when "sport" in a scent's name didn't mean that it lasts one hour max, or that people wouldn't be able to smell it even if you were trapped in an elevator with them five minutes after having sprayed ten good spritzes of it on you. No. This one comes from an era when "sport" in a scent's name simply meant that when you were trying to describe it you'd put only one or two exclamation marks after the word "Powerhouse" instead of the usual three to five, and perhaps sometimes "Powerhouse" was spelled with a lower case "p". Other than that, "sports" of this era were handsome beasts, with sillage and longevity that would rout easily most of today's "concentrées".
For some reason it was never associated with team sports in my mind, but rather with individual sportsmen. And not of the boxing, riding, racing or tennis kind. There were sport editions of Kouros, Boss, Santos and Lacoste respectively for all these nice gentlemen to wear. Paco Rabanne's take on the subject was always about fencing in my mind, and time has proven me right. Imagine a fearsome maniac grinning behind his mask, while delivering devastating blows with his sabre to the wuss wearing some "Eau de Sport Sensuelle for the bleeding hearts" who stands against him. All furious and yelling "Take petitgrain for starters! And lavender too! Fancy some tarragon? Well have some! And let's not forget juniper! And oakmoss! And cedar! And vetiver! How about some patchouli and leather? Huh? How about them? Oh, you're going down boy, you are going SO down!..."
It seems that old scents have their way of rewarding you sometimes, especially when they're not forgotten, but rather remembered with love and respect... I recently discovered two 125ml and one 250ml bottles of it, buried in the lower shelf of a little dusty shop. The price asked for them was pure urban legend material. "Have you ever heard the story of the guy who bought more than a solid pound of Paco Rabanne's Eau de Sport for 60 euros? It's said that from then on he stalks the night with a mesh mask and a sabre, terrorising everyone unlucky enough to have thought that wearing "Eau Légère de Mauviette" was a good idea for a night out..."
I think it's time to go and look for my old but not forsaken sabre now, which is waiting patiently somewhere, along with my bronze medal won in a national championship some 30 years ago...

Is It Possible? A Very Good Sport Scent...
I wore this again for the first time in years. I generally dislike any scent with the word "sport" in it's title... This is probably the only scent that proves an exception to the rule I can think of. It starts off very bland, but quickly develops to a grassy green scent with a woody undertone. A very nice overall accord that while maybe not groundbreaking is still very wearable and distinctive at the same time. At last a sport scent that is actually worth wearing (of course it is discontinued). I guess I may be using this more often. 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5.
