Thread: Polo Red, White and Blue
I can imagine all of those notes except for one: What in the world is curry sage? Is it supposed to be clary sage?
I think this is most definitely an improvement on Polo Blue.
But i don't really smell a distinct and/or believable apple note here, certainly nothing like the very natural apple note in the aforementioned Pal Zileri.
The base is definitely Smoother, and the single note which always seemed to irritate me in Polo Blue is either thankfully missing or hidden. But it's not striking enough to warrant a purchase for me, shame as that bottle is truly a classic design.
^It's not top shelf but certainly better than every Polo fragrance since explorer/double black. However, since my post, I have discovered a scent featuring apple which trumped the Zileri and all below it featuring apple......Cereus #4.

To those who own this fragrance...
Could you please input on its sillage and longevity?
Smelled it a few days ago and didn't care for it at all.
Got a 75ml bottle of this as a gift today from a friend (it was my bday 2 days ago), will provide my thoughts after some full wearings.
Although I'm not ecstatic about it, I do need a filler for my lost bottle of Polo Blue (which I happened to like), and with cucumber and apple as some of the featured notes, I think it's more a crowd pleaser, which is a welcome addition to my wardrobe at this time. Expecting warmer weather coming into March, so fingers crossed it might be a good kick-off to summer-use frags.
