Champion by Davidoff for Men, concocted by Aurelien Guichard, was introduced in 2010 as an aromatic soft and spicy men’s fragrance. It is formulated in the Eau de Toilette concentration and contained in an iconic dumbbell shaped 90ml container. The flacon sports a black glass cylindrical body with silver colored metal plates on either end. It is representative of strength and virility, the two qualities most men wear on their sleeve. Though themed as sporty, owing to its earthy and somber nature, this scent works well for formal occasions too and enhances masculinity like none other.
Champion by Davidoff has fresh, citrusy opening accords. This is owing to the top notes of bitter light bergamot and sweet, astringent lemon. The notes bring bracing nuances to the scent that can be energizing after a strenuous workout.
At the core of Davidoff Champion is the union of bitter galbanum and the herb clary sage. These lend an intense green character to the composition that lingers on. The heart moves on to a profound and comforting dry down that is alluring by itself.
The base notes of the Davidoff Champion 90ml are composed of earthy austerity that comes from the essence of inky oakmoss and woody cedar. The somber melancholy of these ingredients gives the fragrance an overall old world charm that is irresistible.
