From the Men's Side- Polo Double Black

A man very dear to me ( G ) has long been a Polo original ( Green) fan, so I handed him a bottle of Polo Double Black to try . I told him though, he has to give me his thoughts on it to post here.

Here's his comment:
"Really nice bottle, I love that flat black look of it , and it has a nice firm cap that won't come off when you travel. It smells really good, not too strong, similar to the original in a some ways. Nice woods smell."

Then he proceeded to spray himself even more. I wanted to caution overkill, but what the heck, this was the trial phase.

Most men don't quite get into deciphering notes and accords that way that lots of us ladies do, so I'll handle that part.

I ,too, really liked Double Black, and when reading that it has espresso notes, I had my doubts. Turns out you can't really detect the espresso, just a subtle smoky undertone that most likely comes from that note. Mainly I got a very masculine, woodsy scent with vetiver and cardamom immediately coming to mind. The notes also list spiced mango, and nutmeg.

Overall this gets a great rating from both of us. If gift giving for any of the special men in your life is coming up , or you want to start thinking of Father's Day, Polo Double Black would make a great gift.

Interestingly, the original Polo Green has been in the top 15 sellers of mens fragrances for 30 years. Thats quite a run.

Polo Double Black retails at :
47.50 for 2.5 oz EDT
67.50 for 4.2 oz EDT
45.00 for 4.2 oz After Shave
