One of my favourite articles of clothing in spring and summer are polo shirts; Ralph Lauren polo’s to be exact. These versatile tops can be dressed up or dressed down depending on what your day entails, and this is the same with the Ralph Lauren Polo fragrance collection. If I had to choose two scents which I enjoy the most it would have to be Polo Blue & Black – both are refreshing and relaxed. Ralph Lauren has recently released an Eau De Parfum edition of Polo Blue which I welcome with open arms. As much as I love the original, I found it didn’t last very long on my skin, and I would need to reapply the fragrance every couple of hours, especially during the warmer months. The newest edition mixes up the original fragrance notes to create a richer scent that lasts for hours.
Name: Ralph Lauren Polo Blue Eau De Parfum
Fragrance notes: Bergamot, Cardamom, Marine Accord, Blue Orris Accord, Basil Verbena, Clary Sage, Vetiver, Suede Accord, Patchouli, Vibrant woods.
Described as: An elegant and sophisticated interpretation of the original Polo Blue scent. The Eau de Parfum edition is a contrast between the sparkling freshness of bergamot and cardamom – and the seductive intensity of vetiver and ambery woods. Carlos Benaim Master Perfumer who created Polo Blue says his vision for this fragrance was to create a deeper blue and that’s exactly what he achieved.
Wear it: Anytime during spring and summer with your Ralph Lauren Polo of course! This fragrance can be worn casually when you’re popping out to a mates place or take it from day to night when you’re hitting the pub for a boy’s night out.
Price: Ralph Lauren Polo Blue Eau De Parfum 125ml $139. Available from selected Myer and David Jones department stores along with selected retailers nationally.
The verdict: What I enjoy about this fragrance is it stays true to the original fragrances freshness without smelling like an entirely different scent. Polo Blue Eau De Parfum lasts on my skin now for up to 4 hours without being overpowering but enough to get noticed. I couldn’t be happier with the new Polo Blue Eau De Parfum and its longevity and reinvented freshness.
