    Default Ralph Lauren Polo Sport - recent purchase

    Hi all,

    not really a classic as such, but a 4 star fragrance from our good friends Luca and Tania. Worth a shot I guess. This is a 75ml splash, distributed by Cosmair.

    Ciao

    I really like Polo Sport... One of the best "Sport" fragrances in the business IMO!!!

    I think I'm correct in saying that this has been watered down/reformulated over the years, so you've done well to get what looks like a vintage bottle. I used up a full bottle pre-hobby (actually I think it lasted more or less ten years!), then replaced it when I began collecting - I'm sure my new bottle is weaker than I remember.

    Anyway, enjoy!

    Paul P,

    Glad you like this - it was one of the last fragrances I ever bought. I stopped buying fragrances in 1995. I have the same Cosmair bottle except as a spray. The batch code stamped into the cardboard on the base is B35.

    RL is one of the few labels for which there seems practically no information on dating vintage bottles.

    Another Polo that I have tried on several occasions and just didn't work for me.

    Back in the day, I only bought it because I thought wearing it might lead me to Bridget Hall (below).

    Strangely enough, that never happened.

    I used to wear this one a long time ago. I may need to consider tracking down a bottle to see if I remember it. But if the reformulation is as bad as many say, it may not be worth it.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    This is one of those fragrances that will be come a classic, if it hasn't already achieved that status already. I loved it when it first came out and still like it even today. Yes, I'm sure it has been reformulated numerous times and perhaps it is a bit weaker than it used to be, but I think it still smells great! I'm glad I own a full bottle!

    Good purchase, one of the better fresh scents in my opinion.

    Nice find. I used to love this when it first came out. I may just have to track down a bottle, if only for the sentimental value.
