    Default Ralph Lauren Polo (classic) vs Santos de Cartier.

    Polo or Santos edt? Which of these "powerhouse" fragrances from the 80-ies do you prefer? (The recent formulation)

    If the Concentree counts (haven't smelled the original version), Santos. Don't know which formulations.

    It's an even draw. Both.

    So much for asking others what you'll like when only you can ever know it.

    Either of the two, with a slight favoring of Santos as an evening/more formal scent.

    Santos, though I had and enjoyed Polo. Santos is somewhat less medicinal, slightly less flashy, and a little more of a darker, more brooding, more masculine scent.

    As I understand it, the Concentree is indeed discontinued. The Cartier boutique on Fifth Avenue won't sell you a bottle, but as of a few weeks ago Bloomingdale's still had several bottles. My backup stock is in place, I'm all set.

    Since reformulated Santos is very different from the vintage one and I really don't like it, I would choose Polo.

    Both are truly excellent 80s powerhouses and (at least in their original forms) we will never see their like again.
    There is no way I could choose between them.

    Can some fragrances be more masculine than Polo? Is that possible? :-)

    Rumours says that the new designed bottle (without the cap) has been reformulated to the better again, and is now more similar to the concentree. Maby thats the reason the concentree is now discontinued.
