Having a strong admiration for all Ralph Lauren’s creations (one of my favorite brands when it comes to clothing!), I was excited when I read about a new line of masculine fragrances called Big Pony and numbered from 1 to 4. Destined to accompany the famous line of T-shirts, these scents represent the attempt of RL to extend its popularity into the young generation’s territory.
Sadly, the fans of the authentic Polo fragrance (Polo, Polo Modern Reserve, Polo Blue) will be disappointed by these new products. Last summer when I tested them all, only number 2 and 4 seem to mean something, however take into account my indulgence for this assessment, substantiated by the brand’s loyalty.
Big Pony 1 is a citrus aromatic arrived on the market in 2010, alongside its “team mates” and the word that could described it best is sporty. Refreshing as a drink, the top notes in this scent are lime and something that seems like bergamot (not listed in the ingredients). Then, as the fragrance reaches its heart the strong aroma of grapefruit is detectable until it dries down quietly into a soft musky base.
Ralph Lauren Big Pony 1 could be an excellent choice in the summer time, however be advised, because its persistence is quite poor. The elegant and classic shape of the bottle that holds the Polo fragrances is now painted in blue, while the number 1 appears on the front side, in a darker shade of blue. On the back side, the logo with the polo player appears in a green shade. The video advertisement presents a “good life” atmosphere, having as background the song “Secrets” by OneRepublic. Overall, Big Pony 1 is an ideal fragrance for the generation 18 – 30-year-old men.
