Gucci Sport

Updated on September 8, 2014

My continuing search for a spring 2010 scent led me to give my next fragrance a shot. Based on the notes, Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme Sport released in this year seemed a logical choice. It goes without saying the citrus notes attracted my attention, throw in the classic vetiver and you have something worth testing. 

This scent classified as woody fragrance features:

• Top Notes-Grapfruit, Mandarin,Cypress, Fig Zest
• Middle Notes-Cardamom, Juniper Berries
• Base Notes-Vetiver, Patchouli, Ambrette Seed
This cologne’s first chance to disappoint me is its restricted availability,

My first chance to smell this cologne was via a magazine ad Being the impatient cuss I am, I swallowed my pride and popped into the local Macy’s (anyone who knows me understands how much I detest buying my cologne at full price especially in a department store) to try it on before heading to a lunch with a friend.

I gave myself a couple strong burst giving it time to open up before heading into the food court. My initial thought was what did I spray on? The opening wasn’t what I thought it would be. I didn’t pick up on the citrus notes as I had hoped. About a ½ hour into my meeting, the citrus notes seemed to catch up to the fig and cypress.

Almost in the blink of an eye, the middle notes kicked in with little effort but vanished by my third drink. Leaving the place about 2 hours after initial spray on, Gucci by Gucci Sport pulled its second disappointment act. This cologne just didn’t have the juice (no pun intended) to keep going.


Thinking the problem was a weak tester bottle, I decided to give this cologne another field test with the impulse buy bottle I picked up, this time at work. I gave myself three strong shots of the cologne for effect just in case the tester shots weren’t a fluke.

Comparing the two, Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme does have a strong presence than Gucci by Gucci Sport. My take on this cologne is it is something I like and would add to my collection. After given a proper shake down, this cologne does smell nice on me but its longevity leaves a lot to be desired.


My work around to the short life of this cologne is to decant a small portion of this scent into a small 1/3 ounce roll on bottle (my favorite way to take as many colognes on a trip as possible) and re apply as needed through the day.

On the ooh ahh scale, this cologne scores a five. I don’t have a longevity scale but this cologne scores low. At best I get two hours out of it. I do however like the bottle which pairs up nicely with its predecessor, Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme.
