Back in 2008, when I sampled Hilfiger by Tommy Hilfiger I was so thrilled that I bought it right away (sadly, this is one of my few impulse acquisitions). And, in spite of the fact that I liked it so much and I included it in my “to buy” list, I never got a chance to refill it. On the other hand, after sampling the most recent masculine perfume from Tommy Hilfiger, arrived on the market this summer and called simply Hilfiger Man Sport, I declare without any shadow of a doubt that this is, in my opinion, the most interesting fragrance inspired by sport this summer.
And because the original was an aromatic fougere, Hilfiger Man Sport preserves this olfactory category, adding the unavoidable citrus note that rendered a perfect masculine scent for this summer. Because I was so anxious to sniff this new perfume, I could not wait to spray a blotter and last Saturday in Douglas I begin the test by spraying it directly on my wrist.
And from the first moments, I was greeted by the beguiling aroma of pineapple mandarin, coupled with the spicy ginger (very perceivable at this point) and Artemisia. After the vanishing of the top notes, the replacement arrived in the shape of a heart in which lavender fights for prominence, juxtaposed to accord of cypress and geranium. Then, Hilfiger Man Sport undergoes a liner development and finally dries down to a woody base that’s consisting of sandalwood note, offset by amber. The feeling experienced while sampling this perfume was that of a sporty elegance reserved to a man who is characterized by style.
The flacon that holds this fragrance borrows the elegant silhouette from its predecessor, while removing the plate with the perfume’s name from the front side. As an alternative, the name comes printed in black on the transparent bottle, and the flask is topped by a cap exhibiting a black and green color scheme.
