The fragrance has only two notes: mint and ginger. So it’s nice and simple without too many additional notes that don’t really serve any purpose. The mint provides a fresh and uplifting aroma. When we speak of mint we’re talking about a whole new level of freshness and not just the freshness that comes with citrusy notes. The mint will definitely keep you feeling up to the day and will be awakening as long as you can smell it. The ginger compliments the mint really well and keeps it neat and prevents it from being too boring.Basically this fragrance isn’t flashy or unique. You won’t stand out while wearing this, but sometimes simple is best. You don’t need to have a peculiar or characteristic smell in order to smell good. Despite being fairly simple, Big Pony 3 (Polo 3) by Ralph Lauren will still get you compliments.
Big Pony 3’s simplicity and freshness make it great for casual wear. It would go nicely with a Polo t-shirt and a pair of jeans as you go to the movies on a summer day. It’s not really suited for evenings considering how fresh it is. Minty fragrances are mostly more suited for the day as well as the summer. So this isn’t a fragrance you can wear constantly.
Unfortunately there are a few drawbacks to the 3rd member of the Big Pony Colognes for men collections. One of these is the longevity. This cologne will barely last 3 or 4 hours before it fades away and becomes a skin scent. So it’s not something you’d spray on before you leave the house and come back 5 or 6 hours later still smelling the same. It also has very low sillage.
