    Default Layering Polo Green?

    I love the scent of polo green but id be lying if i didn't say i found the scent a bit "dry" for my liking. I either need to find a scent that accurately mimics the masculinity of polo with a hint of many sweetness like Amber, or find something that layers well with it. Any suggestions?

    I can't imagine anything layering well with Polo Green.

    One professor on campus wears it as his signature scent. Anything layered with it would get eaten up by the Polo Green's monster sillage.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    Lol would you guys consider it to be an obnoxious odious scent only for the elderly or something universal? Looking for my signature as well. I don't want to smell like flowers, berries, or candy like all these new fragrances try to impart on me. I want to smell like a manly man. Leather, cedar, sandalwood, etc... I just want it to be a little sweet just to keep it pleasant for daily use

    Perhaps try Cuir Tabac by David Jourquin - very manly IMO.

    Dear lord... please don't layer anything with Polo Green. Ever. That'll be like igniting a second nuke in the very same place you just ignited your first nuke.

    1 spray of Tom Ford Italian Cypress with 2 sprays of Polo Green.....I have been layering this combo for a while now with nice results.

    It's actually my favorite one, and I still fit in the "mid to late 30s" age category! You might also enjoy Roger & Gallet's Open, and YSL's Kouros. Also, check out Every Man Jack Sandalwood bodywash at Target, and both the aftershave balm and cologne in Sandalwood from Art of Shaving

    Definitely love sandalwood. But i know the only pure sandalwood fragrance I've ever really loved was DR Harris sandalwood aftershave. I know the taylor of bond street sandalwood is powdery and watered down. What do you think of aramis?

I think the balance might be right although projection and sillage might be nuclear...
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.

    Unquestionably the best layering of any sort I have ever done is Polo Green over Bond No 9 Bryant Park.

    Bentley Intense
    Cosmair Polo Green
    Green Irish Tweed
    Calvin(original blue)
    L'Occitane Eau Des Baux
    Spicebomb/Lomani Body and Soul(tie)
    Hanae Mori HiM EDP
    Pure Havane
    Dunhill Icon
    Halston Man Amber

    That's some pretty pricy stuff. I can't drop that kind of cash on one fragrance. I think the green may just be too much for me. I spritzed it last night in the family room and my room mate walked in 10 minutes later and asked why i had been spraying Raid back to the store it goes...
