    Ralph Lauren - Big Pony #1: opens with a soapy lime, I get a small hint of mint. Faded after 1.5 hours. Like the opening but not worth the purchase due to short lasting scent.

    Redundant and cheap synthetic aquatic. Nothing to do here.

    Another cheap and aqueous variation of the Cool Water's theme. Immensely  boring and artificial after shower-deodorant. It's sooooo far the original great green Polo.

    Absolutely horrendous. Do not bother with any of the Big Pony's. I got all 4 in a gift pack for Christmas and I wouldnt dare wear any of them in public. Or private for that matter. No redeeming qualities whatsoever in this one.

    Cheap and artificial. Very one dimensional, longevity is mediocre. If you're looking for a sporty citrus there are many better options.

    Big Pony 1 has me wondering why, after decades of boardroom meetings and market analysis, Ralph Lauren hasn't caught on that redundancy is a cheap thrill. You capture the public's attention for all of two weeks, manage to rake in some extra holiday-allowance profit, and eventually wind up discontinuing, discontinuing, and discontinuing some more. There's no big picture here. I thought the 1980s were supposed to teach us about the Big Business Big Picture. Apparently I was mistaken.

    This fragrance is the perfect example of what not to buy, for two reasons: 1) you'll wind up smelling like a cheaper version of Polo Blue, and 2) Everyone smells like Polo Blue. This is a thin watercolor sketch of that tried-and-tired "blueness" that has pervaded perfumery since Cool Water. Not to say that it comes anywhere close to the specific nature of Cool Water itself; BP 1 is a rather air-freshened and abstract blue sky concept. I'm fairly certain that Polo Blue has already failed at making this type of fragrance anything more than a teenage diversion.
