Sexy gardener
Imagine a pool boy in good shape in his late twenties. Now transpose it into a gardener who has just finished his workday - his muscular body is sweaty and dusty, but nonetheless sharp and full of energy. Always after work, he makes a Tom Collins cocktail with a handful of basil and thyme.

This scent is a modern classic. The scent opens with a pleasant strong grapefruit and basil composition which gives it cocktail-ish character. After about half an hour, the clary sage gives it an icy character. Patchouli adds masculinity and ambroxane more sillage and freshness.

Absolutely great scent from smart-casual up to white tie for men older than 25 years old.

A gorgeous fresh take on the classic
I personally love classic Polo for the smoky leather and pine combo with floral chypre undertones and tobacco in there as well, but i have to say you gotta have some serious pants when wearing that being young, besides it being quite heavy even in the latest reformulations. (I personally don't mind, you can wear it even on summer where i live but it won't shine that much)
However, this modern Polo cologne intense is a kind of modern take on the classic. Shares some of the most notable accords such as aromatics and woods, without the old school heavy notes such as tobacco, moss and russian leather. It is for a pretty different use, wear OG '78 Polo to dinners or night dates, and wear Cologne Intense for daytime, high school, university, dayjob, stuff. It is overall a fragrance marked by Grapefruit in the opening, herbals in the heart and then some nice woody notes in the drydown, plus the projection punch and modern touch of ambroxan. I have to say i loved the scent and percieved it in the street once, it is a gorgeous smell in the air...

Super summer fragrance
Now finally had the opportunity to test it, the fragrance convinces me, I bought it right away -
at first you feel directly the DNA to the big relative, the green, mysterious and spicy in the top note - but quickly joins there a lemony effervescence, which initially almost reminds you of grapefruit, but is very pleasant; in the further course I have perceived a very pleasant change, the fragrance was calmer, more settled and altogether more harmonious - it reminds me very strongly of the Lacoste Original 1984.
In short: a successful summer fragrance that lasts even after 6 hours pleasant and stands out from the sweet mishmash

If Polo and Polo Cologne Intense were cars...
...they would be like the Nissan 300ZX from the 80's and the recently announced 400Z prototype. Polo is a classic staple from its time with an aura that is instantly recognizable. What Polo Cologne Intense manages to do is much like what Nissan has done in debuting its 400Z concept: it pays homage to the car's history and lineage, keeping the backbone of its DNA intact while updating and modernizing its overall performance with modern touches to fit the current market.

Gone are some of the heavier components of the original Polo: the smokey frankincense, the leather, artemisia and tobacco leaving behind the fresher, "green" components with some modern touches of ambroxan and grapefruit. I don't get anything pine-wise, but there is an effect with the addition of spearmint that gives something of a similar vibe overall. Make no mistake, this is a scent that is all its own, yet, it remarkably keeps one sniffing because the Polo DNA-effect is, well, unmistakably still there.

The use of ambroxan gives this a fresh base and while it does have an almost shower-gel feel, it never quite ventures into the "blue" category of aura that now can come across as rather generic (let's face it, there's a lot of "blue" scents out there, but this manages to keep a green feel about it.) If you're an ambroxan-hater, a huge fan of the OG and on the fence with regards to sniffing this out, I'd still recommend it. I was pleasantly surprised.

Now if I could only pin down a date for when that 400Z will be released, I'd be all set getting my Marty McFly on and heading back to the future...

A solid new edition to the old. The spearmint makes a huge difference in the scent, giving it a modern coolness, I get vaporub, still good.

With Polo Cologne Intense, you can now smell like you're from the 80's without being stuck in them! A modern, fresher re-interpretation.
