Ralph Lauren Big Pony For Women Collection

Ralph  Lauren has released a set of Big Pony fragrances for women after the successful debut of a men's line last year.   Like the mens, each bottle has a color, number and a "mood" like Sporty or Stylish.   While  we  fit  all of the moods, we might not all fit each fragrance so there are 4 to choose from.  All sound rather fun and I'm enjoying the one I've tried -Free Spirited , #3 Yellow.

While there isn't a full note list for each scent, the two main notes listed do give a decent idea of the scents , at least as far as I can see with Yellow # 3. These are light , fresh and  will work nicely with the warmer weather arriving. They can be freely spritzed without worrying about overkill and refreshed throughout the day.

#3 Free Spirited is very sunny as befits it color and is a nice light floral tinged with  the pear note. It's not a juicy floral but more solar and without the heavy dewy notes that we often see in this type of  scent that are not my favorite.

I look forward to also trying #1 since I adore grapefruit. The blue lotus worries me a bit but we'll see.

 Also, RL has  done a  personality quiz as well as a chance to sneak peek the brand new , not yet released, song and video by One Republic, for the Big Pony campaign . If you take the quiz and post to a social media site, you are entered to win a $4,000 Ralph Lauren shopping spree.  The video, called Life in Color, features brightly clothed pretty things, polo ponies and vintage cars. Yes, it's the Hamptons. Cast of Revenge not included.

Here's the offical description of each Big Pony scent.
