When I was in my last year of college, there was a colleague in my dorm who was using a fragrance from Adidas, called Sport Field. Taking into account that he could never be the type of man passionate about fragrances, this one from Adidas represented the perfect illustration of the “cologne” (in brackets because it is really an EdP!) that smelled nice, without needing to disburse a lot of money for this privilege.
Adidas AG is a German sport clothing company and the owner of Adidas Group, which includes Reebok, TaylorMade-Adidas (a golf company) and Rockport. The company was established in 1948 by Adolf Dassler (hence the name, a combination between “adi” and “dassler”), while the renowned “Three Stripes” logo was acquired in 1951 from the Finnish sport company Karhu Sports.
The debut in perfumery took place in 1985, through a partnership with Coty, the first result being 1990’s Adidas Active Bodies, a masculine fragrance. Adidas Sport Field was introduced in 1994, as a masculine aromatic spicy fragrance. Focused on fresh spicy and green notes, this perfume has a structure that involves a huge number of ingredients.
The beginning of this scent is a pungent mix of tomato leaf, mint, pineapple, anise, green apple, mandarin orange and pepper. Then, in about 10 minutes, the heart notes are perceived, in a blend of lavender, ginger, musk, jasmine, juniper, cedar and geranium. The final part settles down this entire composition; the listed notes include: caraway, sandalwood and oakmoss.
Overall, Adidas Sport Field is a pleasant fragrance that comes with a very affordable price and is ideal for the torrid summer days.
