Approximately a quarter century ago, Polo Crest was released. Since then, there have been a few imitators good and not so good. Truth be told, others already blazed this trail before Lauren decided to try his hand at it. The Artemesia, Juniper, Carnation and Pine remind us of certain releases going back at least 15 years.
The contrast it gives pertaining to contemporary releases is a bold one. It will ( more than likely ) paint a mental picture of your Dad or Uncle wearing this back in the day. You hear this often enough on community forums. My mindset is so what? Is "that" so unpleasant that it would stop someone from wearing an iconic scent? Perhaps it is. I choose to wear what I want if I genuinely like it.
As Crest transitions to the base and drydown stages, earth tones, moss, leather and a slightly different rendition of woods comes alive. These are less gregarious and softened a bit, but just as masculine and enjoyable. Sillage is good with longevity approximately 5 hours before I'd consider reapplication. Thumbs up from Aromi for Polo Crest by Ralph Lauren and as always, a sample wear is recommended.
