Wow, super-manly and has that classic Polo green smell I remember from my childhood. I was nostalgic for the original Polo green and tried various testers at the mall and airports, all smelled terrible. So jumped on Basenotes and sure enough, it had been reformulated to crap. Vintage is too much for me so I snagged a mini bottle of Crest, which I also learned about on Basenotes. I tried Modern Reserve and like that one too, but this stuff has just the right mix of classic manliness and modern clean. I think I just grew some more chest hair...thanks Polo Crest!
WOW this is a winner for sure. Too bad it is discontinued. Tried this over the weekend at my uncles house (who is nursing a bottle of this marvelous juice). Put a little dab on my wrist and enjoyed the great scent for close to 5 hours. Smells 90% like the original Polo (Green) with just a touch more sweetness to my nose. Too bad it is discontinued and the online pricing is ridiculous. If you get a bottle ENJOY!
Best Ralph Lauren Polo fragrance ever. Better than the original Green IMO. Too bad it was discontinued long ago and can't be found at a reasonable price. I guess someone somewhere buys and wears Polo Red. Nobody I know, though.
Wish Crest was still around.
One of the best Polos
Hesperidic tones in the opening mix with green notes and later in the drydown a quite refined patchouli. At times with a floral hint, it has a mild, pleasant underlying sweetness. The base note is dominated by a gentle oakmoss, and this is my impression of this fragrance: restrained and not at all bumptious. After the first hour the projection recedes rapidly, and it remains close to my skin. Given this, I had little hope as far as longevity is concerned, but I was proven wrong: it is, albeit weakly, detectable for over five hours. As far as Polos go, an interesting one.
Polo minus the cigar ash. A masterpiece of clean smelly man-ness. You're probably not worthy. Your dad probably was.
