What did you think of Lumiere Noire pour Homme vs Voleur de Roses?
Thread: New to the Fragrance Game
I am a new collector of Fragrances of all kinds, mainly colognes, and this is my first cologne review video feat. Ralph Lauren's - Polo Blue. What do you guys think of this aquatic scent? Likes? Dislikes?

Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren - One is initially treated to a fruity melange of melons, cucumber and tangerine; the sweetness thereof diluted by the watery freshness and somewhat medicinal flavor of the cucumber. This appealing opening meanders to the perky middle. Here, light piney sage, sweet, anise-like basil and bitter geranium stew with the freshness of the opening, imparting some pep to the lackadaisical fruitiness. The brewing spicy heart is beckoned by the signature base. A confluence of soft, leather suede, sweet amber wood, heady patchouli, velvety moss and sheer musk subsumes the spicy fruits, and carries the composition to its green drydown. This ho-hum composition has poor longevity - lasting 4-5 hours, and poor projection - 2 hours at most.
The same response for your identical thread in the Male Fragrance Discussion Forum.

I own Polo Blue through a blind buy when it first came out but was disappointed with it. I have smelled much worse, but so far only the original Polo (Green) has impressed me from RL.
