Quite a few Marks and Spencer fragrances have been reviewed on IMBB, and several more of their other products. They seem quite popular with the young, urban Indian crowd. Here’s my review for another member of the Autograph range for men – the Autograph Sport EDT. We were browsing through the M&S store at Phoenix Market City in Bangalore and chanced upon this. The hubs liked how it smelled in the store and it came home with us!
The Autograph range was launched in 2000 and is supposed to embody luxury and sophistication. That is quite a good way to describe this fragrance too. The brand claims that, “This fragrance is an aromatic blend of spices, combining luxury, imagination and the spirit of adventure. A perfect day time scent for the active man with an active lifestyle.” Just check out the Autograph brand ambassador: the very dishy Ryan Reynolds.
Name of the Product: Marks and Spencer Autograph Sport EDT
I don’t remember exactly, but it cost around 700.00+ rupees for 30 ml.
My Experience with Marks and Spencer Autograph Sport Eau De Toilette:
The fragrance comes in a blue bottle, that looks blue only in bright lights and black otherwise. The bottle is shaped in a simple rectangular style while the outer cover is a simple grey box. Overall, it comes in a simple, non-fussy packaging. The back of the box contains all the relevant information and even mentions green ways to recycle. Directions of use are to apply to your face and neck after washing and shaving. It also cautions against applying on broken or sensitive skin.
Speaking of sensitive skin, my hubby has sensitive skin with a tendency to breakout on the slightest provocation, but this perfume has been perfect for him. No redness, rashes, irritation or burning sensation. He is also an allergy prone man and cannot tolerate strong fragrances, but this EDT checked that box too. Oh, and it doesn’t stain your clothes as well!
This is not your typical rugged, overly masculine kind of fragrance. It is light and more of the sophisticated kind. On first spray, the scent is a burst of freshness and it feels kind of fruity. A little while later, you start getting woody notes. This probably sounds weird, but it smells “luxurious,” like an expensive perfume from a high-end brand, not that we are complaining!
Hubby says that the fragrance lasts for a good six hours in the summer. I experimented by spraying it on my wrist in the late evening, and voila! There was a faint scent on my wrist even 12 hours later, without being stale. Now that is staying power!
