Much like a special vintage, Polo Modern Reserve is a unique blend, crafted in the spirit of the original scent, using advanced ingredients of the highest quality. The exchange of chamomile for cool, cardamom spice in the top notes introduces an entirely new level of clarity and energy to this invigorating fragrance. A refined vetyver-leather blend elevates sophistication in the mid notes by taking the place of classic tobacco, while creamy, sueded leather meets deep woods in the base notes for undeniable rugged sensuality.
Polo Modern Reserve was developed by perfumer Carlos Benaïm (who also created the original Polo in 1978); the notes include cardamom C02, basil, pimento berry, vetyver-leather, liquid jasmine, myrrh incense, humidor wood, patchouli and sueded leather.
Ralph Lauren Polo Modern Reserve is available in 120 ml Eau de Toilette or in a limited edition 240 ml bottle "which uses 24-karat gold and comes in a limited numbered leather box". The smaller size can be found now at Sephora. (first and third quotes via wwd, second quote and additional information via sephora) Update: see a review of Ralph Lauren Polo Modern Reserve.
