Delightfully fresh and clean
Romance for Men by Ralph Lauren, is not unlike the feminine Romance with its subtle soapiness and understated elegance. However, Luca Turin downs this fragrance, describing it as a 'fresh nothing', rating it with one star. I agree that it's not the most amazing scent out there, there is a lot that could be expected from reading the scent pyramid prior to testing, but in all honesty, it's a very pleasant and wearable fragrance which I happen to like.

The scent is mostly clean and spicy, particularly throughout the opening, where I didn't manage to detect any fruit or citrus accords. There's the tiniest hint of lavender, which is smoothed out with ginger and creamy soap nuances.

The heart is mostly lily and nuts, perhaps a little too floral and feminine at times. It actually reminds me of Emporio Armani White for Men. This fragrance is perhaps more woody though, with a slight hint of greeness.

The base is quite a likable, yet subtle, musky pine and vetiver blend. The drydown was the most masculine aspect of this fragrance in my opinion. I can't say that I find this fragrance unisex, but I will class it as a light masculine floral.

Perhaps for some, Romance for Men is mediocre and bland. I didn't mind the scent, I found it quite comforting and clean, which is something I need to smell on a man sometimes. All in all, it's a fragrance worth trying, even if it's just to see whether you love it or hate it.
