    Default NEW Ralph Lauren - Polo Cologne Intense Eau de Parfum

    Edit: Ah, here we go! https://www.ulta.com/polo-cologne-in...pimprod2023258

    Has ambroxan, ehh, hm.

    "Irreverent. Confident. Masculine. A Polo cologne for a new generation. The iconic perfume for men is reinvented to combine the fresh elegance of a cologne with the intensity and depth of a sophisticated Eau de Parfum. The Polo Cologne Intense Eau de Parfum from Ralph Lauren is an earthy & woody masculine blend of fresh grapefruit and cooling sage is balanced with the signature smooth tones of intense patchouli.

    The iconic Polo classic cologne bottle is updated with a rich modern hue and striking gunmetal cap and Polo Pony logo.

    Fragrance Family: Fresh
    Scent Type: Woody & Earthy
    Key Notes:
    Top - basil oil, spearmint oil, grapefruit oil

    Woah, ambroxan. Sounds interesting and definitely worth a sniff.

    EDIT: I have to say, that's kind of lame for Ulta to list it on their website, but it's not available to buy or pick up anywhere. I searched several nearby cities and, when in doubt, New York, NY, and nope... not available for online order or in-store purchases. They should have just listed an expected release date.

    This is a must sample for me, but I'm prepared to be disappointed by it. I wonder if there will be any recognizable elements of Polo Green in this at all.

    Interesting. The notes and description don’t really excite me, but I will definitely try it.

    Also of possible interest: it has the same name (“Cologne Intense”) as the new Azzaro flanker. I haven’t had this kind of deja vu since Dante’s Peak and Volcano were at the box office.

    If they replace original Polo with this, expect Fragheadmaggeddon.

    I loved Modern Reserve and purchased it in the spot and did an instant review thread. So I can’t see me not buying this just because Polo was my 80s stuff so I’ll take the shot

    Thanks for the heads up. Ulta is showing this already out of stock or is that just a placeholder?

    I'm intrigued but I'm not a fan of ambroxan. I don't know how it would smell in a non-"blue" fragrance.

    I would love to get excited about this, but man have the flankers been a letdown. Unless the reviews are surprisingly great, I'll sample once it hits Ebay and then go from there....

    I will never say never, but once Ralph passes away that could be all it takes to start "reorganizing" the wardrobe. They won't discontinue the flagship men's fragrance while he is still around.....

    Maybe I’m a simple man and in the minority but I feel like they greatly improved the Blue line with the EDP and Blue Gold(the best of Blue). I still find the complete Polo line is quite classy, albeit boring. But that’s me. I kind of like the boringness. It may be the prep romanticism of my youth

    Likely similar explanation for YSL. When he passed in 08, L'Oréal started shuffling older stuff into "La Collection" at higher prices per ml (then discontinued them all), while focusing on the L'Homme lines and Y. I can't say I know exactly what has happened to the femme lines (since women's stuff isn't as prone to trends and tends to stay on the market longer), but it was definitely under rug swept we go once the man was gone.

    Anyways, I need a new bottle of Polo, My Cosmair is low and I keep avoiding it for that reason. The old bottom-of-the-bottle blues.

    Well, Blue was highly disappointing (and unfortunately a blind buy that I quickly regretted and eventually gave away)... I remember trying Blue Gold from a sample years later and thought it smelled better than Blue, but that was a pretty low bar.

    That’s fine. I never liked the original Blue much but the others I enjoyed. But again, everyone is different. I felt Modern Reserve was a great scent too. The original Polo Green is still my favorite but I’ve enjoyed the line compared to many that try too hard.

    I also really like Polo Blue Eau de Parfum. It's a more mature approach to the modern blue trend while still having a unique identity. I haven't tried the other Blue flankers.

    I don't think I've encountered a Polo that I disliked. But I have yet to try the various Reds, Supremes, and the newer Blue variants. And those are all the newest ones, right?

    And what a name. Each term could be its own flanker.

    I'm guessing "Polo Cologne" is there way of saying "Polo Green" so people don't get mixed up with Polo Blue Eau de Parfum. Presumably if this one is a hit, they would later release an EdT strength.

    Looking at the note breakdown it looks like a very different, even completely separate, fragrance than the classic. Grapefruit? Maybe that note is just garnering too much of my attention. I'm still excited but it looks to be a completely different scent.

    Doesn't seem too appealing but if I did see it available for testing I probably sample it once and be done with it.

    Yup took them this long for a flanker not that it was needed. Worth a sniff though younger generations need to grow a pair hahahahaha.

    I'm still hoping they'll bring back the original pine heavy Warner version of Polo green someday...but I know I'm hoping in vain.

    I'm extremely curious about the blending of this note list. I'm not generally a fan of thyme in fragrance and I prefer peppermint to spearmint as well in perfume...but hey it's definitely worth a sniff.

    If I'm being honest, I'm disappointed that this amazing looking forest green bottle with gun metal cap isn't a fir heavy Polo green formulation. I really do love the presentation for this one...looks nice.

    We'll see and smell, not a fan of ambroxan, the classic Polo is a perfect orchestra so I wonder how this "new edp ambroxan-depth" could sensibly be set inside the original Polo olfactive piney-woodsy harmony.
