    The success or failure of PCI may play a role in their future decisions. I also believe that no dramatic changes will happen as long as Ralph is still alive as that would be pretty cold. But who knows, business is business.

    Maybe they were instructed to put their OG Polo supply away to sway people into checking out the new Polo Cologne Intense or some other kind of temporary shenanigans.

    I remember back in the day, when CDs were still a thing, a current artist would always have their last album fully stocked at places like Circuit City. Then when their new album came out, which just so happened to be crappy, only that one was fully in stock. It was like that at several big chain music outlets.

    A possibility, but in the end money talks. If Polo Green isn’t selling then that shelf space goes to what is. It makes sense as Granddaddy Green doesn’t fit any current trends at all. We like to revel in our vintage memories here on BaseNotes while Macy’s needs to move product today or go out of business tomorrow.

    If that's the case should we expect a flood of Polo's at the discounters? I'd rejoice at the thought but they'd probably be the stubby sprayers.

    From what I’ve seen it’s already there, especially through wholesalers on Ebay.

    I have a comfy stash so I’m not too worried about discontinuation but will regularly add to the reserve as I feel the need. I plan to be wearing the tall fire hose sprayer version far into the future as a old man!

    I need to buy a new bottle and am after the tall sprayer. What's the trick to determining tall vs stubby sprayer in online photos with cap? I can find testers without cap that have the tall sprayer, and I'll buy one if I need to, but I'd prefer to get one with cap.

    Considering I can use the cap of a future empty bottle, I'd also like to know how to identify sprayer's difference!

    Just make sure the box says Cosmair or Luxury Products MADE IN THE USA. That will get you the tall sprayer.

    I have mostly all testers now with only one bottle with a cap, the USA bottles are drying up on eBay. The testers are just fine imo and the easiest to find and you can tell that it’s older stuff I still message the seller to confirm batch code information. 8oz USA bottles with taller sprayer are still quite available on eBay but their so damn big I opt for the 4oz bottles.

    Tester it is. I'm not looking to get 8 oz. right now. My "fragrance balance" for 2021 is crazy enough as it is. I do appreciate the replies.

    I just got a 59cc EDT bottle - says Cosmair and batch code 7A008.

    Is this the good stuff? Smells good - piny top notes, and drydown ashy, earthy leather.

    I just bought an 8oz bottle from ebay but the juice is pretty weak. It's a luxury products bottle, NY NY address. The box has the Vendome place address on it but the batch numbers on the box and bottle match up. I'm wondering if it just needs time to open up a bit or if it's a fake. The ebay seller claims it was originally purchased from Amazon.

    ive bought a fake 4oz polo green off ebay years ago it sucked you could easily tell it was a fake . one way is to test it spray like 8 times on your arm (same spot)and see how long it last

    Looks like it's out of stock now or was an error on Bloomingdale's part?

    Tall sprayer over latest stubby.
    Tall sprayer one seems to mellow out much quicker, stubby seems to have major ash and lower performance. Though I'm guessing a big 238ml takes longer to bloom up?

    Anything Cosmair that's been stored in halfway decent conditions is good.

    That said, if you are lucky enough to score a Warner era bottle, you'll be blown away! It's a brighter opening: not nearly as much tar. The opening lasts a few hours for me, but the drydown of each is similar.
    Current rotation:
    Polo Green(Warner version)
    Calvin(original)
    Dakar(prefer it to current drakkar noir)
    LPDO Vanille Persuasive
    Kenzo Jungle Home
    Mercedes Benz Private
    Terre d'Hermes EDT

    Yup agree plus I love the tall sprayer appearance nice quality gold metal not the cheap looking gold one on the stubby one. I’ve tried a 238ml bottle 2011 or 2012 and it was too ashy also a pain in the ass to hold and spray lol looked badass though so big!
