Fresh, warm, and sporty floral notes of lavender, jasmine, rose, and geranium swirl with crisp citrus hints of mandarin orange, neroli, bergamot and lemon over a base of musk, amber, sandalwood and cedar. Perfect for an active man of the 90s.The designer of the fashion label behind this scent originally hired Tyson Beckford to be the face --and body -- for his ‘sport’ clothing line.
