    Default Latest Ralph Lauren - Ralph's Club!

    https://www.basenotes.net/threads/48...=1#post5199969

    Anyone try this yet? Thoughts positive and/or negative?

    This one will most likely be a pass for me.

    Interesting. Bottle looks good. Names kinda dumb. Notes are sparse, but promising. No tonka, no apple, no ambroxan, no woody ambers listed. They may be there, but if they are not highlighted that can be cause for optimism, right?
    I smell.

    I hope the character is more in the vein of Purple Label than of the Red/Blue lines. Something a bit more old school.

    This basically is my thoughts as well. It looks like it could be promising. Really hoping for something that has no ambroxan/amber wood and no tonka or sweet notes. If the listed notes are to be believed, we could be in for a bit of an old school fougere vibe with the lavender and clary sage, but I guess time will tell. Now that stores are beginning to open up in Toronto and I've had my second shot I might have to make my way into a store to sample it.

    Even with the note listings though I'm anticipating something pretty modern smelling, but like Chuck I'm hoping it goes a bit more old school

    I do love the bottle. It hearkens back to the Monogram style of bottle. Love the throwback design.

    I agree. It’s been a flanker-fest for years it seems.

    The name goes against these politically sensitive times a lot. You can see CK pushing inclusiveness with releases like CK for Everyone, and opposite end of the spectrum we have Ralph Lauren releasing something with the word “club” in it. I personally don’t mind but it’s the sort of thing that normally wouldn’t get past the marketing team these days

    I think although not sure that the name is tied to his past 2019 one-night fashion gala called "Ralph's Club" that many famous people attended who were given a special invitation.

    It looks like a booze hip flask which is probably on purpose.

    That may well be and it may have been a very bougie event. But I can't deal with the name at all. "Ralph's" is the name of the most prominent grocery store chain in SoCal. "Ralphs" here means groceries, not "Lauren."

    If you told someone here in L.A. your scent was Ralph's Club, the immediate association is going to be with that grocery chain and the frequent shoppers club you join for discounts.

    They will think you picked it up for $7.99 along with your lowfat milk, a dozen eggs, Honeycrisp apples and some nonfat yogurt. The good news is, they'll probably think it smells pretty good for a cheap grocery store cologne.

    SoCal is not the whole world, so maybe it doesn't matter in the big picture.
    I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    In that case, in SoCal, I guess you would have to say then that you're wearing Ralph's Club by Ralph Laruen and emphasize the latter!

    lol yeah my first thought was “like Ralph’s and sams club teamed up to collab on a fragrance??”

    I just got a Facebook ad for a sample, I’ll post my thoughts in 6-8 weeks when it eventually arrives
    “I have often observed that [scents] cause an alteration in me and work upon my spirits according to their several virtues; which makes me approve of what is said, that the use of incense and perfumes in churches, so ancient and so universally received in all nations and religions, was intended to cheer us, and to rouse and purify the senses, the better to fit us for contemplation” - Montaigne

    I haven't tried any of those except H24, and H24 is a very solid release.
