Big Pony 4 arrived on the market two years ago, in June 2010, together with other three similar fragrances called Big Pony 1, 2 and 3. This collection was meant to celebrate the Ralph Lauren’s Big Pony polo shirts sporting large numbers and logos with polo players and was aimed at a generation younger than the typical RL customer.
The number four from this “team of fragrances”, as it is called in the official video advertisement corresponds to a woody aromatic scent. The short film was directed by American fashion photographer Bruce Weber and features the song “Secrets” by OneRepublic. Besides the fragrances, in the video appears a group of 4 young, sportive and ambitious men, each one representing a scent, the one attributed for Big Pony 4 being a sleek-looking man.
I sniffed this perfume 2 years ago, quite soon after the launch and I was pleased by its incense aroma (I’m fascinated by every perfume that involves this note in its ingredients!). The listed notes for Ralph Lauren Big Pony 4 include grapefruit and kyara wood (similar to agarwood and a very expensive type of incense). Due to this combination, Ralph Lauren Big Pony 4 remains my favorite perfume from this series. The refreshing opening of citrus is excellently dried down to this beguiling aroma, the only regret being the fact that the scent is not as long lasting as other Ralph Lauren fragrances.
Ralph Lauren Big Pony 4 comes in the signature bottle of the American fashion house, made from orange glass and adorned with the number 4 printed in red on the front side and the polo player’s logo in blue shade on the back side.
