I don't know where reviewers are getting the pine note but this scent is nice and refreshing!
Not citrus-like, not synthetic, to me it's more of a light tea aroma.
So clean and it works fine for me anytime of day or night.
If you want an inexpensive coniferous frag, reach for Pino Silvestre and leave this stuff on the shelf.
Thumbs down? No -- I'll give it a solid "neutral" rating.
Interesting, though, or worth seeking out? Not really.
Synthetic, yes, but pleasing. This isn't too offensive but not too run-of-the-mill. Definite pine notes but not the signature pine in all of the Polo frags. This one is more clean but non-distinct. Longevity on my skin isn't that great, however. Casual wear.
Very sharp and quite synthetic pine and rosemary notes predominate in the opening with an aromatic presence. Itís not very enjoyable. Itís very hard to differentiate the levels of the pyramid with this fragrance because it claims so many coniferous notes: pine, sequoia, and cedar. Beverly Hillís Man is extremely linear, which works with some scents that have interesting accordsóbut Man doesnít have such accords. Man (the fragrance not the masculine gender) lacks depth and character. If you can get past the synthetic ambiance, it might be a good scent for anyone wishing to smell sort of like a pine - cedar forest without spending major dineros. (Edit of 29 August 2006 review.)
