Ralph Lauren is another brand that I am fond of when it comes to fragrance. Ralph Lauren - Lauren Style [yet to review] is my favorite from the brand. When I got the Ralph Lauren Blue as a gift my happiness knew no bounds and I did expect a lot from it. Having tried so many other variants from the same brand and the word 'Blue' related it to be a fresh or aqua based fragrance. Read more to see how it turned out.
The color theme of this fragrance obviously matches with its name and thus the attractive blue packaging that you can see in the pic above. The fragrance is predominantly floral and woody and the first sniff put me off completely as it was no where close to what I had expected. I thought I would never use this and kept it aside for a long while. Later [as I started managing woody notes on me] one day I tried it again and thought it wasn't bad. I use it some times but definitely not my favorite and not the one I am comfortable wearing. Sillage being moderate it works as a daytime wear as well. For me, the fragrance is a bit heavy and too musky and floral :(
Top Notes - Jasmine, Lotus, Gardenia
Middle Notes - May Rose, Tuberose, Orange Blossom
Base Notes - Sandalwood, Musk, Vetiver
|You can see the bottle is almost full..|
- More than how it smells initially, I like how it smells towards the end.
- Good mix of floral and musk fragrance.
- Sillage is moderate.
- It suits both day time and night time as well.
- The fragrance lasts really long, almost until I put my clothes for wash.
- Very popular fragrance from Ralph Lauren.
- The top floral notes are too heavy for my liking that some times I even get a head ache !
- Simple design of the bottle.
The cost of Ralph Lauren Blue EDT varies from Rs.2500 to as much as Rs.4000 for 75 ml.
This fragrance is many girl's favorite and so it might be yours as well. However, I find it too strong for my liking, especially the top notes. After a couple of hours the fragrance settles down and that is when I can breathe comfortably. I love how it stays forever on my clothes. If you are woody/floral fragrance lover then you might love this one too.
