    Is the cost of the sample set still deducted from the cost of a full bottle? It was when I ordered, but they've added a lot of new scents since.

    I really like Oolang, Bois Blond, Cedrat, Pomelo and a few others, but they definitely have some duds - Ambre Nue, Vanille Insensee. Their sampling program is awesome though.

    Re: Why the hate for Polo Red Intense?

    Actually, I was quite surprised by this one, probably because the original Polo Red is terrible. This one is a big improvement, but still not bottle worthy for me. I do like it though!
