    Wow - I'm really late tonight...

    Today's SOTD was Ralph Lauren Polo Blue.



    I remember sampling this about 10 or 15 years ago, really liking the pineapple on top, and planning on buying a bottle. I never did get that bottle, but Polo Blue is still the frag I sniff when I'm killing time at a store.

    So, finally, I got a sample and had a chance to try it for real.

    Hmmmm.... Disappointing...

    The pineapple lasted about a minute before drying down to a pleasant but generic herb mix that was actually very similar to the salty basil & rosemary herbal mix of Acqua di Gio. Except Polo Blue ruined it by adding ozone. Not for me...

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Today's SOTE has been my first test of Tom Ford Italian Cypress.



    Interesting.

    The top was dominated by a sort of warm musky tone that was quite comforting but still kind of gross (I'm not one for musks). The cypress took quite a while to break through the lightly-feminine warm musk. Once it did, this became quite nice. Eventually, it dried down to a pleasant cypress/pine/leather mix that I like best of all of its stages.

    Alas, this is clearly not for me, but I can see why people like it.
