Hi style forum. I'm a longtime lurker, first time poster, with one very specific question for you:

I used to wear a fragrance named Sportissimo, from Galimard. I got it when I was in France. I notice that I can't get it here in Canada. I was wondering if anyone familiar with it (or who knows anything about cologne) could recommend something I could find here in Montreal. If it helps, I found a database where they describe the cologne as follows:

Top Notes
Artemisia, Bergamot, Rosemary, Mint

Middle Notes
Orange Blossom, Lavender

Base Notes
Cedarwood, Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla

Any takers? Or advice on who I could ask/what I would go about doing to get a similar scent?


Thanks for any advice.

+1 to Willpower's rec if you want that exact fragrance.

In terms of something alternative, sounds like it might be a fougere or an aromatic fougere, based on a glimpse of the notes. There are tons like it... maybe try something like Chanel Platinum Egoiste or Cool Water? For something pricier, Creed GIT or Montale Fougeres Marine. Azzaro Pour Homme is also considered a fougere, but is spicier while the others are softer/more aquatic.

I dunno, my sense is telling me you might like to try Platinum Egoiste. Here are the notes:

Top notes
Lavender, Rosemary, Petitgrain

Middle Notes
Clary Sage, Geranium, Galbanum

Base Notes
Vetiver, Cedarwood, Labdanum, Treemoss
