    O my god! another one from davidoff – in 2008 adventure, in 2009 hot water, now – champion.
    I think they’ve decided to take the glory of 1 million and Only the Brave with a such bottle.

    • Robin says:

      I have still not smelled Hot Water, although I finally saw it in Kohls yesterday.

      • antonpan says:

        At first sniff I was disappointed by Hot Water, but after some time I was imbued with it. Not bad.

  2. lupo says:

    That’s a good runner for the “Tacky 2010 Award”. Only The Brave will have a honour prize as Supreme Tacky Bottle, however.
    “Symbol of power and masculinity”. Good grief, then they talk about bending genders in perfumery… Not gonna smell this soup even under torture!

    • Robin says:

      I don’t mind the bottle — it’s sort of funny.

      • antonpan says:

        I’m sure most of men and women (as a present) will buy Champion because of the bottle

      • miss kitty v. says:

        I definitely agree that it’s funny. Would make a great gift: “Here– I got you a dumbbell because… you’re a dumbbell.”

        • HA! Good one Miss Kitty! :)

        • NaturalSelektion says:

          Or I got you a dumbbell because you’re such a symbol of power and masculinity..lol I dont want to say anything mean..so I’ll just keep my comments to myself about their quote to describe the bottle.

      • thenoseknows says:

        Funny HaHa? or Funny HeHe? LOL! :-D

    That bottle… I looks more like something from Avon, but not Davidoff.

  4. FragrantWitch says:

    IMHO it looks like a bottle for the college jock who never grew up or out of his gold chain- wearing phase…maybe it will at least smell good!

    • Robin says:


      • FragrantWitch says:

        I know, looking at it in print it sounds bad! Apologies any offended. Let’s just say that I REALLY don’t like the bottle…

        • Robin says:

          LOL…no worries, I was not offended.

  5. BChant says:

    I smelled Champion at a Coty training last month and I have to say that it is probably the best mass market release for men this year. I am really surprised that it is called a sport fragrance as it has a lot more in common with Antaeus than Cool Water. The juice is really wonderful and has great depth with the sparkling quality of a great chypre. It was a real surprise as there releases have not been as exciting. I would encourage everyone to try this very happy development.

    • Joe says:

      Well that sounds encouraging. I still don’t want that bottle on my shelf, but if it’s great, I could always decant.

    • Robin says:

      Oh good, glad to hear it!

  6. Joe says:

    Dumbbell is right.

  7. gerbick says:

    It’s official. They have officially run out of ideas. A dumbbell? C’mon.

    Last year, a fist. This year, a dumbbell. I’m waiting on Avon to bring back those car bottles from the 70’s and 80’s now.

    • FragrantWitch says:

      LOL, I remember being so thrilled to present one of to my dad on various occasions.

  8. FragrantWitch says:

    I mean ‘one of THOSE’…aargh bad typing and bad mood

  9. Rictor07 says:

    Mr. T should promote this fragrance. For those who hate it already, be prepared for many flankers. I am eagerly awaiting the the Champion for her, which will have a bottle shaped like a yoga mat.

  10. Craig Su says:

    I’m bummed that they actually are taking dumbbell as an inspiration for the bottle. I mean, don’t take everything too literal. Creativity is not that literal.

    I am amused by the stapler from Paco Rabanne in early years. Then the house comes with a gold brick that awarded as some kind of the best fragrance. Now we have a dumbbell from Davidoff? This must be eying the best fragrance of a decade.

    • Craig Su says:

      OK. At least boys do not have to worry where to store the fragrance. Put it by the side of real dumbbells.

      That’ll work.

  11. eminere says:

    What a terrible bottle.

    Classic overcompensation.

  12. Endymion says:

    OH MY GOD! NOOO! This bottle must be a joke! Really. Is it April 1st? :)
    Well, I really can’t believe it! 2 things came into my mind. – they collected a huge amount of men sweat and bottled it. – or they made a scent that will erase intensive body odour after work out. But isn’t that called deodorant? Hm….
    They surely will advertise it with sweat drops on a bottle put on a huge biceps! ;D

  13. patmckensie says:

    The bottle looks actually pretty cool…Like when it’s eyes-catching & sleek.

    I usually wear le Male or Dior Homme sport, but I think I’ll give this one a try when it’s available.

    btw, @BChant: Do you know when it’s supposed to be released in Europe ?

  14. henry says:

    what do we want ?? A bottle or a perfume ?? Coty has forgotten who mr davidoff was……..This fragrance can be every popular brand ….I am getting bored,nothing new,nothing special ! Just a nice gift cause of the bottle maybe ??
