So, to make up for both, Earl and I teamed up with Influenster and POLO Ralph Lauren to review their latest men's fragrance, POLO Blue.
Technically, we didn't try it. Only Earl actually wore POLO Blue. However, I smelled it, so that counts (right?!)
Anywho, time to review:
So Earl, what did you think of POLO Blue?
I would say that POLO Blue definitely has a man's scent. It's not a middle of the road fragrance.
Sometimes with men's fragrances, they have a lighter scent, allowing for younger men or even women to wear it. Not this one. It's very masculine. It's a grown man's scent. It has a depth to it that makes it a more sophisticated scent.
It's definitely does not have a cheap scent. I would consider Blue one of the nicer fragrances. While it's a nicer fragrance, I would also say that is versatile. It's an easier fragrance to reach for if you're going to work or going out for the evening.
It's a great completion piece. It also lasts for about 3-4 hours, enough for an event or well into your lunch break.
Then again, I don't douse myself with it either. Just a few drops put on around the neck area does the job.
I would consider it a middle shelf fragrance. Definitely not a cheap one, and certainly not for cologne beginners. But it's a good go-to for daily use.
I definitely agree with you. POLO Blue certainly has a man smell to it. It's not like typical, mature men's fragrances in that while it's not overpowering, it is strong enough to stand on its own for hours at a time.
In fact it's quite nice it's actually what I like my guy to smell like. You know how some fragrances don't work well with certain body chemistry. Not so with this one. It has such a clean yet sophisticated scent, I think it could work on anyone.
Unlike Earl, however, I would say this scent is a top shelf scent. Because of the depth of the fragrance, I would call it a fancier selection that could be reserved for date night or an event. It might be a little too fancy for everyday, but that all depends upon what you're used to.
It's definitely a style elevator, adding a touch of sophistication and a hint of dapper to whatever look it's added to.
