Azzaro will launch Chrome Sport, a new flanker to 1996's Chrome for Men, in February (see also: Chrome Legend).
Chrome Sport is a woody aquatic developed by perfumer Michel Almairac; the notes include citron, mandarin, grapefruit, bergamot, bitter orange, fresh cut grass, aquatic notes, ginger, pure oxygen, cedar, amber and white musk.
Azzaro Chrome Sport will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette. (via wwd)
Pure oxygen is a joke, isn’t it??? Tell me that it’s a joke cause I’m about to get sick…
LOL — but that’s what makes it a SPORT fragrance. Must have air & water to be SPORT.
What about sweat????? Isn’t it “sporty” also???
I always take it that the point of sport fragrances is to cover the sweat
Ok, I’m joking about the sweat thing, but smell like pure oxygen is an offense to my perfumista sense, it is to take the marketing to the edge of the absurd, they’re calling us idiots
Sports fragrances, as a rule, strike me that way — they’re not for people who care about fragrance.
I have a bottle of Chrome that I smell once in awhile that reminds me nostalgically of Germans I knew in the mid-90s. It can be sickly headache inducing, but LT/TS favorably review the Legend flanker I think, so I’ve often thought I should sniff that one. I’m sure I’ll give this new Sport one a pass.
I’m sure I will too.
“Chrome Sport” kind of broke my brain, because the original was already about as bright, clean, and sporty a scent as you can imagine. It’s like calling a flanker Opium Oriental or Pleasures Floral.
Except the original is practically radioactive in strength, so a watered-down version would almost be welcome.
Pleasures Floral — excellent.
inho strong musk note isn’t sporty at all
The words “woody aquatic” make me run for the hills…
JUST what we need…another woody aquatic…certainly very original (that’s sarcasm!)…what a joke!
It is sadly true — there are enough aquatic sport scents to go around already.
I… Silly Goose I am, Love Aquatic Fragrances and am lookign forward to this expectantly! most of the notes sound right in my favorite Scent Zone… Grapefruit, Bitter Orange, Amber, Sandalwood, GINGER! I await it eagerly! Loved all the Azzaro Chrome Fragrances!
Hey, everyone should love what they love, right? So no silly goose.
There are plenty of clones of these everyday fragrances in the niche world, and yet the expensive, “prestige” versions get so much more love. I wonder why that is?
Do they really? Which ones?
Did the world REALLY need another fragrance like this?! Gack.
The world easily doesn’t need at least 60% of what it’s getting from the perfume industry
Hold on a minute! I see a lot of negative reactions posted on this one. Just because of the name or the fragrance’s notes description, all just assuming that it must be boring and bad. It is not.Of course its true that there’s a lot of very boring aquatic and “fresh” scents out there these days but this one really is good. It has personality and is upliftingly delicious. I was always looking for a fragrance that smells like the “Gletschereis” candy’s taste (widely available in Austria and Germany). Also, among the reviews there’s some bad feedback regarding “sport” scents in general. This is not just a recent name for fresh fragrances though. Remember Santos Sport, Paco Rabanne Sport, Trussardi Action Sport or even Alain Delon Eau de Sport? These all were and some still are great “sport” fragrances with an idea and lots of personality behind them. Azzaro’s Chrome Sport is absolutely up there with them in my opinion. Very well done and a summer favourite!
I think there are so many sport fragrances now that many of us are just tired of the theme, but glad to hear the ACS is worth smelling, thanks!
He speaks so badly of fragrances sports. But nobody talks about the male sweet fragrances that come in droves, all with the same scent, feminine and earthy smell. I prefer a thousand times a masculine cologne sport these sweet pumps that multiply around them as the eighth wonder of the world! We have fine examples of sports perfume: Dior Homme Sport, Lanvin L’Homme Sport, Versace Man Eau Fraiche and even Azarro Chrome Sport. Let’s be smart and separate the wheat from the chaff.
