(Its discontinued so I bought a small sample from the Perfumed Court)
The longevity is very poor in the sample I tried, it disappeared in 90 minutes...unacceptable. It smells good while it lasts, but I'll take the "old green grease" over this any day. Save your money.
(I tried the recent formulation of the original and it smells like stale cigarettes, avoid that one too. Gotta go vintage if you want the good stuff)

I was very surprised at all the "Thumbs Up" and positive responses here. I was NOT IMPRESSED! I was surprised at this scent. It is nothing new on the original; PRL Mondern Reserve is only slightly more floral than the original. Modern Reserve still imparts the harsh herbal tang as the first but softens the fragrance somewhat with a touch more floral. This fragrance still carries the moderate to strong sillage and does last a good while. If you are a fan of Ralph Lauren Polo, than you will like this one. Modern Reserve is boring, and has been done before, the florals don't help much. It is a nice work and weekend fragrance and it's reliable like an old friend, it's inoffensive; a go-to fragrance. But if you're looking for something new, this is NOT your fragrance.
The first thumbs down i'm afraid. Too green. I'm not a fan of overly sweet fragrances but this has no sweetness detectable at all. After the first hour i began to feel sick and couldn't wait to shower this mess off. Synthetic with strong sillage and longevity. Not pour moi.
