Why anyone would want to smell like a thoroughbred, or like Mike Ditka for that matter, is beyond our comprehension. But in the last few years, sports fragrances have become quite popular. Here are 10 such scents, some of which did not experience the sweet smell of success.
adidas: No, this is not the aroma of an old sneaker. Rather, it blends Singaporean patchouli, Indian tagette and Antillean ylang-ylang.
Bjorn Borg: Like its namesake, this citrusy scent was retired. It, too, is unlikely to make a comeback.
Harley-Davidson: When a biker wants to feel like a real man, he dabs this patchouli-and-sage concoction on his secret places. Come on, Snake, pamper yourself. You deserve it.
Bully: The Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their signature scent in 1989 with the slogan, "Splash on Bully and head out for the evening with icy abandon."
Hai Karate: According to its '70s TV ads, this, the granddaddy of all sports scents, made beautiful women lose control over nebbishes who wore it.
Thoroughbred for Women: Roses merge with white jasmine and violet to make this an appealing perfume to satisfy even the most finicky filly.
