    To answer the thread question - Low. Tried a few but wouldn't personally recommend any.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I've only tried two. Icon was what I'd call A*Men Pure Strawberry and Gold Wings I'd call A*Men Pure Absinthe.

    To me the only one that deserves a **** out of 5 is Icon Intense because of the rather nice warm blend of patchouli, benzoin and crystal amber, and the bottle.

    I picked up a bottle of To Be for cheap at Ross and enjoyed it. I knew nothing about the fragrance or brand when I got it, I just liked the skull bottle design. It is a very safe scent. I actually got a lot of compliments when wearing it. It wasn't anything groundbreaking, but, at a Ross price point I think it was completely worth the purchase.

    The first few scents Police put out many years ago were more expensive and better than what they later put out.
    I then got tired of testing their new releases which had an air of cheapishness about them, and only occasionally do so now,

    To Be The King was okay - for the $5 I paid for it.

    Certainly, to many males not into scents the way most are here, Police scents would be reasonably priced and smell okay to them, and smell not bad to the noses of many people around them.
    Regards,
    Renato

    Far from arresting

    I think the general perception of Police fragrances is governed by their somewhat tacky naming and bottle design, cheap prices and wide availability. I have never been tempted to try any of their offerings due to the aforementioned, although I am sure I own fragrances that might come under the same bracket.

    I have Police Icon and Icon Gold.
    Icon is decent and Icon Gold is a great soft sandalwood/patchouli scent which is long lasting.
    Some Police scents are poor, some are okay but there are a few hidden gems such as the Icon series and others.
    I wonder if some of the people posting on this thread have even smelled a Police scent recently.

    I like their shades. Somehow never felt compelled to smell their fragrances.

    Haven't tried any. Been skeptical to dive into this brand. I'd have to blind buy bottles, and I'm sure they'd be hard to get rid of if I didn't like them.

    I read a while ago one of their frags was similar to A*Men, and then I read later that all of their frags are similar to A*Men, LOL, now Bigsly seems to feel the same. I trust his judgement, so I'll be avoiding this house, as I already own and love A*Men, it cost's the same price to buy A*Men pretty much, and the A*Men flankers are second to none.
