This review will be an addendum of sorts for my 2 prior reviews of "Polo".
My initial review was negative, citing the pungent odor on a 90 degree plus day.
Over the past several weeks, I've tried "Polo" on days in the low 80's, and like it very much in that range.
however, i like to wear it myself, and i think it's a very good choice of cologne for women. Guys, don't get caught up in the "Old man smell" foolishness...
This fragrance gets me more compliments than anything I've ever owned.(Niche included).
As a truly masculine perfume, Polo does not contain floral notes, apart from camomile, which has more grassy than floral scent.
The opening of the composition is green and fresh, made of grassy notes of artemisia, basil and thyme, with spicy notes of cumin, coriander and cloves.
I distinctly remember the enigma-effect when this was my signature for a year or so back in the 90's, so whilst I assume there have been the inevitable reformulations since then, I'm pleased that the spirit of this fragrance has been kept intact.
