Beautiful, what must not be beautiful
Sometimes it's a thing with fragrances - those that, according to the classic standards of all cut-away perfume fans, can't really be fantastic at all, because they don't live up to everything that is generally appreciated; zeitgeist, complexity, creativity, individuality. Ted Lapidus Pour Homme is such a blatant case. Here we have a fragrance that is only 5 years old, but looks as if it was conjured out of a hat in the mid-80s. Angular bottle with 8-bit lines in the Max Headroom inspired RoboCop design, simply color matched the grey 87 bottle of the original. Done! And already this annoying bad habit of throwing light versions on the market as sports flankers doesn't seem inviting to me with the Pour Homme Sport either, to want to dive in more with it, sports fragrances tend to scare me off! Which makes me wonder what this "sport" has to do with the grey '87 Origial, please, as I can't detect any basic sport DNA at all. For me this is a completely new fragrance, with the bottle and name as a common feature. That's all!
By such standards, "Sport" must not be good at all. And yet it is, surprisingly, moreover: With Kouros and consorts he has nothing to do, not even with all the masculine fragrances of the 70 / 80s. It's amazingly citrusy, fresh, bright and positive - and wonderfully old-fashioned and straightforward. I don't detect any more complex scent progression, but there's an overbearing assertiveness to it, something that immediately settles into the nose. A little wild, but not too much, and quite long lasting. A nice spring and summer scent for just going shopping. It certainly puts a smile on my face every time I suck it in. It's this down-to-earth simplicity in Sport that wins me over and reminds me that fragrances don't have to be complex and expensively niche to win my heart. Sport certainly has it when it's appropriate. Sometimes just crispy fried potatoes and fried egg can be a real goumet meal

CD Deo spray for women
I am surprised that the comparison has not yet been drawn to CD Deo Spray for women, fragrance: Wild Rose. Only directly after spraying on I take similarities to the original. As I think the original smells sweetish - animalistic, I wonder why I didn't treat myself to it. After about 10 minutes the original Ted Lapidus note fades away and very strong rose-like flower chords blossom out. The flower-rose accord will also determine the rest of the fragrance. Ted Lapidus Sport has similarities with the well-known women's deodorant CD-Wildrose. In other words: not a typical men's sports aquatint. The durability and silage is really good, if you like this scent you are well served with TL Sport, the price-performance ratio is also right.

Elegant soap!
Love this! Unlike its original brother, which I find quite obnoxious and heavy.
This one has a very pungent orange blossom, which contributes to the slight feel of dirtiness. I can detect an underlying Kouros vibe, which I absolutely love.

The scent is quite unisex, to be honest! It remains quite linear and fresh, but with a soapy vibe for quite a long time. Not at all old-fashioned. It takes the white aura of Kouros and adds a bit of orangeness to it.

Let's talk about kouros, character and cats...
or why some fragrances take time to become appreciated. To understand the following commentary it is imperative that I oute myself as a fan of Kouros, his summer flankers (until 2006, the following flankers were crap) and Zibet. No matter how the majority of the "olfactory society" positions itself to Kouros, for me Kouros is and remains an ingenious and measured at today's "fragrance bombs" a beautiful, but also wearable fragrance. In other words, before I come into the dubious "pleasure" of a Gaultierian weapon, may I rather be showered with Kouros. As a fan of Kouros, I also always liked the summer flanks, especially the here highly praised Kouros Cologne Sport (2003), unfortunately now nowhere to get and therefore only a fragrant memory. As an attentive reader of our esteemed forum, I soon became aware of Lapidus pour Homme Sport, allegedly a fragrant twin of the aforementioned Kouros Cologne Sport and thus an immediate test candidate. However, scents with the name "Sport" trigger a whole orchestra of warnings in general and in particular, only a few so-called "Sportflankers" are serious test candidates and in general, names like Sport, Intense and Extreme should be banned from the world of perfume. Let's rather use simple descriptions like Cologne or L'Eau and at least we know to some extent what to expect. For me, Lapidus pour Homme Sport is less a "sports fragrance" than a kind of Kouros Cologne or Kouros L'Eau. Well, there's no doubt that Kouros and its equivalent from the house of Lapidus are very different, and so it's not surprising that Lapidus pour Homme Sport is also a very polarizing fragrance by today's standards. Nevertheless, it deserves a comment and a possibly exact description and classification.

Lapidus pour Homme Sport, stands in a traditional line to the Kouros summer flanks and you notice this directly and truly immediately after application. The fragrance opens with a canonade of spicy-citric bergamot and citrus notes, which admittedly can mean an "overkill" for the nose. But this prelude is not chemical-artificial, but despite its intensity very natural, even if not the milder oil of the fruits, but the tangy-fresh zests were the godfather for the opening. At the same time you notice a good portion of fresh herbs, which make sure that the citrus notes are tamed to some extent. Immediately, a Mediterranean, even if rugged, scent emerges, which reflects figuratively the Greek coastal landscape. After about half an hour, floral notes are added, which mark the fragrance for a good hour in a very successful and natural way. The scent of orange blossom is clearly perceptible and merges with the "rugged" top notes, thus considerably reducing the scent impression. The rose geranium gives the fragrance a light floral sweetness reminiscent of "overripe" roses. Lapidus pour Homme Sport skilfully plays with very explicitly feminine notes here and embeds them very well in the masculine theme. Now we wouldn't be talking about an olfactory relationship if a portion of animal notes hadn't been added to the fragrance. However, this is not a civet cracker, here the cat does not jump with its buttocks into your face, no, it caresses you, wants to be stroked and draws attention to itself. So actually already at the beginning of the fragrance there is a light animal veil over the scent, sweet and warm, a bit dirty and very full of character.

After a good hour or so, the fragrance melts into a single, citric-floral blend, softened by spices and animalistically underscored, whose durability is enormous, but whose sillage is very pleasant and never disturbing. Now you may criticize that Lapidus is a good thirty years too late with this fragrance, that it doesn't really correspond to the spirit of today's time, that it is not wearable at all. In my opinion these attributes are all wrong! Lapidus pour Homme Sport gives us Korous friends a very wearable reinterpretation of the still beloved Greek. And speaking of Greeks, Greece and Kouros, I find the scent of the Greek islands with their rugged coasts, lush plantations and gardens very well implemented here. Somehow I feel transported to a garden at the Greek coast with blooming citrus trees, rock gardens with herbs and a strongly purring cat on my lap

Terribly old-fashioned
This fragrance is classic. Very classic. First, I wanted to put him in the oldschool category. But oldschool has a rather positive connotation. Old-fashioned doesn't really fit either, as this somehow presupposes that something was fashionable at some point. In 2016, the year it was created, it was guaranteed not to be. And so I stop at old-fashioned. That's probably what it's all about: being terribly old-fashioned.

Thematically Ted Lapidus pour Homme Sport belongs to the Kourosartigen. That's not bad for now. It is also lighter and reminded me at the beginning of Kouros Fraîcheur, who in my opinion is the best representative of the series. Less cat, more freshness.

So far so good. Unfortunately, it was already with the positive. The scent does not manage to use the good facilities. After a short, promisingly fresh start, the herbs quickly dominate. These are unfortunately rather dull nature and so the smell impression turns into an unpleasantly musty direction, which he keeps until the end. The fact that Patchouli will be added later on fits the theme, but naturally reinforces the muff. By this time at the latest, the Ted Lapidus pour Homme will be miles away from sports.

My respect for the fact that in the year 2016 one dares to bring "something like this" onto the market. But if it's classic, then please rather as a modernized oldschooler and not so horribly old-fashioned!
