    The Tom Ford rep i know said it reminds him of "Polo Green" and 2 other people said the same thing about IC without me mentioning anything about Polo.

    Somewhat, but Polo features a loud accord of birch tar "leather" which sets it apart (and makes it unwearable for me).

    Italian Cypress is much more like Halston Z-14 (old formulation) and Valentino Vendetta.

    It's iconic, well made, and not overtly friendly like the cucumber calone hairsprays that pass as fragrance nowadays. Plus, the bottle is green. It is therefore trendy to hate on Polo.

    Polo Green as we now call this still does very well in sales.....This is a fantastic fragrance and one that has stood the test of time.....I do like this and feel that it is a classic!!!

    Yes. Every once in a while I sniff my vintage Polo to remember what fragrances *could be*.
