    Sure I read/heard somewhere that MR was just a re-branding of Polo Crest???

    It's been years since I tried the original, but I remember loving it back in the day. Have MR and like it a lot, will have to try Original again but I guess that's probably been messed with since............

    I 'discovered' MR last year and was immediately bowled over by it. I loved it. However, I've since cooled somewhat. I still like it, not sure it's still love though!

    The original Polo is great!

    Modern Reserve is great. A 20 something year old can wear it without worry of smelling like an "old man".

    Sprayed these both on while Christmas shopping at the mall. I'd say the original wins hands down. I agree with an earlier post that Modern reserve seems faceless.
    TOP 10

    2) TM Pure Malt
    3) Le Labo Santal 33
    4) Burberry London

    Enjoy them both. The original more but mainly in my spare time, MR makes for a better work scent, pleasant and calming, exactly what the doctor ordered to help with a little nap at work.

    I enjoy them both, but I prefer the original.

    The original, NOT a subsequent reformulation, is an absolute classic. I have found NOTHING as distinct. No one wonders what you're wearing when you're rocking original Polo.

    You're basically comparing Queen with Freddie Mercury to Queen with Paul Rodgers.

    Modern Reserve is like reformulated Polo Green sprayed on Grandpa's tweed sport coat, and sealed into a bag with mothballs for 5 years.
    My top ten, in no particular order:
    Insurrection II Wild
    Polo
    Halston Man Amber
    Mugler Pure Wood
    24 Gold
    L'eau Bleue D'issey Pour Homme
    Kenzo Jungle Homme
    Terre D'Hermes
    Mauboussin M Generations
    Calvin(original blue)

    I like it a lot. It lasts up to twelve hours on me and it's one of the few that I get compliments on.

    The vintage Polo Green by far.Tried the modern reserve and it is the perfect example of how these regulations have changed perfume for the worse.

    It has, but you can still find it inline, but the price is climbing.
