Very nice floral scent with a hint to musk. Beautifully blended tuberose, Polo Ralph Lauren t shirt pear, black currant & rhubarb. Dry down is warm, slightly sweet & woodsy.
Would make a beautiful signature perfume for some. By 1969, the Manhattan department store Bloomingdale’s sold Lauren’s men line exclusively. It was the first time that Bloomingdale’s had given a designer his own in-store shop. In 1971, Ralph Lauren Corporation launched a line of tailored shirts for women, which introduced the Polo player emblem, appearing on the shirt cuff. The first full women’s collection was launched the following year. This is a nice offering from Ralph Lauren.
Towards the heart, it becomes ever so slightly sweet, which will be sure to appeal to the current market. The dry-down is a very safe blend of softened pear, orange blossom and sandalwood. To me, smells like a clean, mature woman. I get pear and rhubarb most of the way through. It isn’t unpleasant but isn’t anything special either. I think I’d enjoy it more if the top notes were more in balance with the middle and base notes, as I definitely prefer it after it’s been mellowing for a good while.
I love the plaid dresses as well as the plaid toggle coat! Clothing from Polo Ralph Lauren offers countless styling opportunities. Change the game and explore your fun side by adding a bright color such as pink or checks to your wardrobe.
That’s not to say it’s generic though, because it isn’t IMO. It just means it’s not girly or too mature – for those who like to attach ages to perfumes I’d say it would work for anyone late 20s to their 60s. Then, I don’t know why, but I can smell some kind of ylang ylang, which I do not like. The hazelnut can be found in the dry down with a deep sniff and under a thick floral layer. This is too “perfumy” for me, almost giving me a hairspray/synthetic vibe.
An independent South African company trademarked the Polo name and logo in South Africa. Also in October, Ralph Lauren Corporation has appointed former Obama administration consultant Valerie Jarrett to the board of directors. The RLX Golf collection draws inspiration from the traditional aesthetic of Polo, updating it to create a modern sensibility focused on performance-driven design. From sophisticated styles to the most technologically advanced fabrics available, RLX Golf is the ultimate in functional luxury.
This is one of those perfumey smelling perfumes, sort of like those “classic” older fragrances where the notes don’t really smell anything like the actual authentic ingredients. No authentic white flowers or indoles or anything, just a nice perfume-y rendition of them. I’m not a fan of white floral in general in fragrances, especially tuberose, but hands down, this one by far has succeeded its purpose of convincing me otherwise. I started to like tuberose and jasmine NOW, from the moment I was introduced to “Woman” by coincidence. I play-tested this scent in the store while waiting for my husband to pick me up. After years of searching this is the perfume of perfumes.
So I’ll enjoy the mini dabber bottle I have of it but I won’t be purchasing a full bottle. Overall though, it’s a nice, crowd pleaser of a scent of the fresher variety without being aquatic or soapy. I can’t believe no ones noticed that this is similar to Roberto Cavalli EDP for women, they are crazy similar. That juicy amber smell with a floral hint. I keep stopping mid review to sniff my wrists, god damn.
When I spray it into the air or even the opening on my skin, it’s beautiful. However, very quickly this becomes an orange blossom dominant scent, just very perfume-y smelling polo dress shirts and not much else. Borderline hairspray on the dry down on my skin. Normally I dislike tuberose because I think it overshadows all the other components in a perfume.
This will probably appeal to lovers of strong white florals that are not balanced by spices or oak moss . I was never a fan of Ralph Lauren fragrances but after announcing the release of this fragrance I was intrigued and had to give it a try. Woman by Ralph Lauren is for the classy, poised & young modern woman who embodies femininity but also has an androgynous side.
