Sport Your Fragrance

Davidoff – The Game (price on request): You might not have the James Bond wardrobe but you can add some allure with this poker-inspired fragrance. The edgy bottle underlines the poker connection with a design reminiscent of stacked poker chips. Irrespective of your favourite spirit, you will love the opening notes of this woody aromatic fragrance that combine gin with juniper berries. The Game finishes on an intense note, just like your evening might if you score on or off the poker table.

Prada Luna Rossa (Rs 4350 / 100ml): The America’s Cup is one of the world’s oldest sporting events and prestigious yachting challenges. This fragrance takes its name from Luna Rossa, Prada’s successful yachting team and the bottle’s design borrows heavily from sailing boats. Luna Rossa means red moon in Italian but this is a quintessential day fragrance that is particularly refreshing in humid weather. The scent breaks way from the more intense evening scents that the Prada men’s line is typically associated with. With zesty notes like bitter orange, lavender and spearmint it’s the closest you might get to the ocean spray on a yacht.

Polo Black Ralph Lauren for Men (Rs 3800 / 75ml): Ralph Lauren’s first Polo inspired scent in the legendary green bottle might be too heavy and masculine for today’s metro-sexual male. A lot has changed since 1978, including men’s fragrances. Crafted by the same perfumer behind Sean John Unforgivable (Pierre Negrin) Polo Black is a versatile fragrance that works for a day in the office and is good enough for that unplanned dinner rendezvous.

Carolina Herrera – CH Men Sport (Rs 4150 / 100ml): Not all outdoor sports involve calorie burnouts and high adrenaline action. If you are more comfortable playing intense sports on your gaming console and occasionally indulging in relaxed water sports during a beach holiday, this relaxed scent might just be your scene. Inspired by Carolina Herrera’s weekend trips to the American East coast full of boats and adventure sports, CH Men Sport captures the spirit of the sun and sand. It opens on a sparkling note with grapefruit and lasts endlessly thanks to its dominant sandalwood base note. 

Lacoste Challenge Refresh (Rs 3550 / 90ml): Andy Roddick, arguably one of this century’s most successful American tennis players might be the face of this high-energy fragrance but the sporty inspiration for this fragrance dates back to the Twenties. Rene Lacoste who established this iconic brand was not just an accomplished tennis player but made zany improvisations to the sport. One of his brainwaves was to wrap his racket handle with sticking plaster for a better grip. This invigorating scent includes spicy notes like cardamom and rosemary while its long bottle cap resembles a tennis racket handle.
