    It was one of my first designer frags before I became a collector. I really like it. It's very refreshing and reminds me of being on a boat out in the water on a warm summer day. Good longevity for an aquatic. Garners compliments too.

    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 Just Starting Out Forum.

    I enjoy or think most of the Polo line is decent enough. Blue is one of the only ones I can say I dislike. There is an astringency to it that makes me dislike it. Just not good.

    It's alright at first, then it gets meh, then it's gone, which I guess is how most aquatics are...it was one of my first purchases but I never use it. There are better options.

    I enjoy Polo Blue, but I think the very similar Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua is a better take on the same theme.

    Cucumber, for me, sucks so hard. Don't like it much. It can spoil good perfumes.
