    Default Polo Blue Gold Blend

    So this was a present from my kids on Christmas. As I stated on the Christmas thread, we narrowed a group down at Sephora down to 4 and I told them "what do you want Dad to smell like everyday, if you could pick just 1." So Polo Blue Gold it was. I'm telling you what, this has been a very special surprise to me. I already enjoyed Blue EDP so I wasn't sure how this would differ but here is what I've loved. 1) Compared to the other EDP, this lasts all day on me. I mean really strong 2) I find the initial blast still has the Blue DNA but it is a little sharper/sweeter/fresher and just lightens my mood from the start and 3) the most enjoyable thing is the drydown, which is very "delayed" on me, like wearing another scent 5 hours later. The first 2 times I wore it I kept thinking..."who is wearing that nice scent around me." It had the incense type feel of AdG Profumo with a twist. Maybe it was the Amber and Patchouli playing off the incense but it was great. I don't do many reviews but this was a winner on me and glad my kids went with this. I hope Polo keeps it around because I think it's their best release in a long time.

    It's an awesome thing when a scent just clicks. And especially when your babies pick it out!

    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.

    Could not agree more. They've always done a good job finding something I like but I was really surprised at how much I've enjoyed this and how, as you said, it clicks. Hope you both had a great New Years!

    Congrats. Yes. This stuff from the 2 hour mark to the 10 hour mark is pretty potent. Opening keeps me away from the public the first hour. This juice is potent. Great drydown. Glad you enjoy your gift. I may wear this tomorrow.

    Although that's not saying much, it's absolutely true and you could say this of Blue Gold if it were released from any other house. It's the best of the Blue line by a long shot and I like most of the Polo Blue flankers, except for the EDP.

    Hey Chuck!!!! Good to see you all. Kind of off the grid this past year. Trying to get back. I allowed the sub forums to leak into my personal life and it upset me so much I stopped posting. I felt highly disrespectful and figured I would just enjoy my fragrances and stop giving my personal opinions on anything fragrance related. The good thing is I'm starting to read again and this was a cool post. I was doing trials with the gold a few months ago. I like it better than the edp. Wearing Chanel bleu Edp today. Was reaching for TDH parfum but I ate a bunch of oranges last night and when I smelled the sprayer I just decided to rock the bleu. Oh. I got the polo from Dillards in September or oct and they gave me a huge blue travel bag. Even has a leather zipper tab. Legit. Nice freebie Polo.

    Speaking of oranges, I've been on "cutie" kick lately. Those little miniature tangerines. Some call them "halos", I believe.

    Yes, it is my favorite from Polo since Modern Reserve.

    I love it too Scentologist! Really just works well day and night and I've worn it in cooler weather and just got back from the beach and it was great.

    Glad I'm not the only one!

    Yep, I got a sample of the blue/gold recently and it just plain smells good. That new tangy sweet note is hard to resist.

    I got bleu de chanel EDP last Christmas. This Christmas was polo blue/gold. My wife likes it better than the chanel. Congrats on the great scent.

    Sampled at Sephora last week. Nice! Has the Polo Blue DNA with a touch of citrus. Seems richer, which is a good thing.

    ToughCool....thanks for letting us know about it!

    I've had my original bottle of Polo Blue since it came out (egads, is it really 17 years ago?), and so this caught my eye. I still love it, so definitely need to sample the Gold.

    No problem! I'm wearing this daily right now and love it. I think you will enjoy this version

    Glad others are enjoying it too.
