I own a full bottle of Polo Crest...but I was introduced to the fragrance through the donation of a 15ml splash bottle. It looks like a full size bottle..only in smaller scale, complete with gold cap. That might the one you are referring to.
The scent itself is very similar to the original Polo, except smoother and slightly less heavy. It's as though they took the strong pine scent out of Polo and replaced it with a golden spicy, amber. I find it a much better balance and far less offputting than the original Polo, which I enjoy thoroughly as well.... It still maintains that strong 80's powerhouse influence.. but makes it a heck of a lot smoother. Classy stuff actually.
Hope you enjoy it!
