A harsh mountain breeze
Faint over rocks and pine trees
Not for all noses.

I received this as gift shortly after it came out. Back then I thought it was good, but didn't really care to wear it. Now that I really appreciate fragrances, I love it. It is extremely generic and 'designer', but very pleasing. The fragrance is quite sweet for being in the woody category. The subtle leather note is nice touch, too. Longevity is about 8 hours and extremely linear. Sillage is great for the first 4 hours.

A solid offering from Ralph Lauren. A winner that is different from the usual mall juice produced now from the big name designers. A fall / winter scent and wearable on cooler spring days. The juice itself is a nice blend of citrus and spice with decent longevity and projection. A buy for sure. Enjoy!

Salutation.

RL fragrances has a Reputation due POLO line as Most those smells Especially DOUBLE BLACK Better after develop on skin but This smells Laudable within a Few minutes of application However It smells a bit different on various persons.For me Definitely top notes Better of middle and base notes.

EXPLORER is Absolutely Woody and Masculine.in other words Fresh, Powerful and Pleasant.It has an Innovative blend of notes Synonymous with RL style but It could be never a Signature scent. At the beginning It smell much of the Bergamot and Mandarin Orange and Nice for my nose but the change is Common in middle and Especially in the base notes.

This mixture keeps you Feeling Masculine and Gives you confidence.It doesn't seem like a Night time or Romantic type of Fragrance. Perfect for the Office or a Day in the city.Suitable for AUTUMN. If you already have several Fragrances of Polo line probably this is not a Great Surprise for you.

Sillage is Good but Longevity is not as Good on my skin.it is Average.

Orange and Bergamot to kick it off, subduedly fresh and pleasant. Fairly soon a coriander arrives that is a tad flat and unexciting on my skin. Woodsy notes arrive in the base and a light insipid amber towards the end - all a bit too generic and synthetically-predictable to really make an impression. With adequate sillage, fair projection and nearly five hours of longevity, this scent does not reach beyond pleasant mediocrity. Overall just soso.

Genre: Fougère

The pyramid makes it sound like someone added aquatic notes to Cartier’s Déclaration, but that’s not what Explorer smells like. The dusty, spicy coriander note dominates the citrus top notes at the start, a well-rendered bergamot only emerging as a distinct entity after a few minutes’ wear. I’m happy to report that the pyramid’s “aquatic accord” doesn’t make much impact, so Explorer dodges both the chemical harshness and the shampoo flavor that come with so many attempts to recreate the seashore in a bottle. Instead, Explorer’s center of gravity is defined by an off-dry combination of woods, resins, and brisk aromatic notes.

Bergamot remains conspicuous for a surprisingly long time, adding sweet counterpoint and balance to what would otherwise be a parched olfactory landscape. A faintly smoky leather accord (is that labdanum I smell?) peaks out after an hour or so, adding warmth and a welcome layer of complexity to the overall composition. It’s after about two hours on the skin, when the bergamot fades out, that Explorer begins to unravel. The composition’s balance falters as the exposed woods take on a rough, chemical edge that grows more blatant and disruptive over time. The leathery element and spices are next to go, leaving only the dry, woody aromachemicals in their wake. What remains in the end is yet one more of those harsh, pencil shaving drydowns that seem to be the common destination of half the commercial masculine scents composed since 1990. A promising start, but a downhill journey.
