I'm sure you're all aware of my affinity for warm, elegant, floral fragrances, but as a beach bum at heart, I still have room for aquatic fragrances. I've always loved water ever since I was little, and when I was old enough to appreciate perfumes, the first perfume that I fell in love with was Davidoff Coolwater for Women because it reminded me exactly of water: Beach, pools, and even the river near our house in Laguna. But just like any other person, I grew up and so did my preferences-Davidoff will always be my first love, but I wanted to discover other fragrances with the same nature.

The second aquatic perfume that I liked was Bvlgari Omnia Coral, third one was Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia, and the fourth one is this: Ralph Lauren The Big Pony Collection for Women #1: It's an aquatic fragrance that smells so energizing and refreshing, and it reminds me so much of a fun afternoon with friends by the seashore! (Gosh, this is killing me. Take me to the beach! NOW!)

There are only two recognizable notes here even if the description said it contains various citruses and light florals, and those are Lotus and Grapefruit. Initially, you're wowed by the zesty scent of Grapefruit-Maybe there is a hint of Lemon or Bergamot in the top notes, but they are to insignificant to consider. Then after a few seconds, Lotus starts rolling in to give it a cool, watery appeal and then it ends there. Actually, I like the fact that it only has two dominant notes (perfectly- blended and carefully handpicked dominant notes for that matter) because it made the entire fragrance light and uncomplicated, hence perfect for summer, especially for beach use. Staying power is okay: It lasts for 3- 4 hours, which is expected from an EDT. It has a tad bit masculine character to it, (this is one of the reasons why I love it because it also reminds me of my BF. LOL. Okay I'm cheesy) so if you like something that smells ultra girly yet still super fresh, might I suggest you try The Big Pony Collection # 3 or # 2 EDTs.

Overall, I like it because I appreciate its simplicity and freshness. Great for beach heads like me, sporty females, or those who delight in girly fragrances with a hint of masculinity. Apart from being a great beach fragrance, it's also something you can wear on a very casual day and to school.

8 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I'm not familiar with aquatic notes. I probably smelled them before but didn't readily identified them as aquatic. Thanks for the description Ms M!

  2. Hmmm grapefruit ay medyo citruisy noh? Im not craving fpr this one pero id love to know how it smells like

  3. Coincidentally, I just bought 2 different perfumes yesterday! I suck at describing scents and I'm worse at picking the right perfume for myself. It always eats a lot of time selecting what I want. hahaha oh well... that's how women are.

  4. You are right Kris! I may have smelled them too but I cannot distinguish it. It is so cool that you can Ms. M! You really have to be an afficionado to be one.

  5. Cool water was also my first love perfume. Actually it's my perfume today while typing...hahaha! I'm also a beach bum girl and I might take a sniff of these pony collection one of these days.. :) I also got curious with the Acqua Di Gioia...hmmmm..Thanks Ms. M!

  6. A lot of my friends have been using this perfume since forever, I guess it's really that good. Hope someone will give it me as a gift though since it is pricey. Thanks Miss M!

  7. I agree that it's a little masculine. I gave it to my significant other because I love the smell of grapefruit! and anything citrusy for that matter. :)

  8. Kris and Jec: Welcome!

    Eloise: Yup! It's citrus-floral, but more citrusy. :)

    Leilani: Haha thanks! Took me a while to train my nose. :D

    Jill: Yup, it's good. I agree. Gifts are one of the best things in life.

    BrownOso: My brother uses it too. :D

    Dane: I could relate to that! I'm always undecided on what to get when I'm buying perfumes so I end up buying nothing or else, I'll empty my bank account! :D
