    Default What are some Polo like scents for younger guys?

    2 Part Question:
    1. trying out the fragrances at the macy's counter i really liked the original polo in the green bottle. i was surprised as i'm only 21, ive heard its an "old man" smell. that doesn't turn me off from it, i pretty much liked it but it was a tad heavy. does Polo have a more subtle and earthy cousin?

    2. how does Parfum d'habit compare to Polo?

    Try Polo Modern Reserve. It's a modernized version of the original. It was created by the same perfumer who made the original.

    They're very different to me. I have tried both but own only Parfum D'Habit which I think is a wonderful scent and IMO far better.

    1903 by J. Peterman gives you a fresh green fragrance on a bed of leather and tobacco without the heavy feel Polo can convey.

    You might also try Polo Modern Reserve.

    is it a heavy or loud fragrance?

    The current version of Polo original is pretty tame compared to the one that I smelled a decade ago. When I smelled that one I thought "Eeek". To my mind the current one is the milder cousin of the original, which may well have elicited the supposed "old man" comment.

    Polo Modern Reserve is quite good, but doesn't really remind me much of Polo - as I wouldn't call it a conferous scent. Perhaps check out pine scents like Pino Sylvestri (which I'm not fond of) or, if you can find it, Versace Green Jeans.

    If you like Polo, stick with it. I highly recommend NOT to try Polo Modern Reserve - unless you are looking for a neutered version of Polo.
