I brought this over 10 years ago when I worked at sea. It was blind purchase

i like and my boyfriend likes the smell on me. I find it a more feminine smell.

I rarely wear scents like this so keep that in mind. It reminds me of New West for Men but with the harshness toned down considerably. I can wear this one, unlike New West, but I don't find it particularly interesting. I'd rather wear Pino Silvestre, vintage Tsar, or Green Jeans, for example. However, this is certainly a good "office scent" for warmer weather, if that's what you're seeking. It's technically competent and reasonably natural smelling, with some obvious "fresh" aroma chemicals that are used in moderation, for example. The notes sound great but I only detect a small number of these clearly. This may not be an aficionado scent but for those seeking one with mild but clear pine, this is worth considering.

I'm getting better at this game: Five minutes after spraying this on myself I guessed that it would be an unmemorable, generic woodsy/spicy scent. And so it is. Reviewer Luca Turin says it best, however: "The fragrance is so unmemorable that the only appropriate review is, 'It has a smell.'"

It doesn't have much longevity or sillage - so after some hours pass by you can spray on something you like a lot better that will dominate. (I find that Yatagan is my go to champion for this.)

I "disliked" it, but that doesn't tell the whole story. I neither liked it nor disliked it. I will simply forget about it. So not only is there no Romance here - there isn't any love, either.

I don't do well with these Ralph Laurens... the only one I like is Polo Green - and I think I'm mildly allergic to it.

Tried it at the store and found it not to be what I thought Romance should be. Not a romantic scent at all. I passed on this one.

I wanted to try this fragrance also intrigued by its name, maybe I was expecting something different ... like you could represent romance perhaps more velvety notes of vanilla and musk but Romance is not all that, at first sight seems somewhat grumpy and surly, the opening is rough and pine is already present with massive doses but slowly fades and gives way to hints of aromatic herbs and the bottom is a woody aromatic almost inaudible (at least on my wrist)
that mean? a discreet fragrance that seems made for a company without jerks or extravagance, outdoors seems to take strength and persistence, but it is an honest fragrance without a lot of claims that can brighten our days midseason.

This classic is strong at first, but when it settles it is as satisfying to the nose as comfort food is to the belly. Well worth the price.

Romance is a wonderful mens fragrance that lives up to its name. Polo hit a grandslam with this scent. Perfect combination of citrus and woods that lasts a while. Great for on a date with that lady you wanna impress or when you feel like dressing up.A good pick for day and night time useage. Romance is a must buy and must keep in the collection

I have it, I love it, I use it..

I just bought a new bottle (I feel lucky to have found it)

I will alway have a bottle of this.. This is like Oscar De Larente Pour Lui to me.. Classic, clean, last long time and easy on the nose.. It smells so good that the ladies want to lick me.. :-)

9-10 stars.

I had been very curious about this for a long time, I think the name, the design, the commercials and last but not least the notes looked fantastic. According to the notes, this could be a unique masterpiece.

I finally tried it, and I would have to give the most reviewers right. The scent is very plain, ordinary, tame and everything but spectacular. And so is the longevity and projection. It's just not good quality. It does not smell bad, just way too ordinary.

Fresh, calm, serene, comforting, elegant, caring (I know funny to describe a fragrance as carin but that is how it projects you to others and may be that's why the name ! ) I have used 2 x 100 ml of this (2001 and 2004) and would buy it again if I found it ! Wondering if it has been discontiued........)

Caliking got my balloon for hitting the nail on the head.
I was so excited about trying Romance.
Look at that fantastic composition! Blackcurrants, yes! Celery, lily, ginseng, rose, PLEASE!
OAKMOSS, PINE, PATCHOULI!

nup...

Citrus >-(

To my nose, you cannot make a good fragrance with 2 citruses and ginger in the top. It just bollocksed it up for me.

Ooh, the drydown, nice but I cant reeally smell it anymore. Its a faint softness on my hand.
So sad

Romance for Men by Ralph Lauren, is not unlike the feminine Romance with its subtle soapiness and understated elegance. However, Luca Turin downs this fragrance, describing it as a 'fresh nothing', rating it with one star. I agree that it's not the most amazing scent out there, there is a lot that could be expected from reading the scent pyramid prior to testing, but in all honesty, it's a very pleasant and wearable fragrance which I happen to like.

The scent is mostly clean and spicy, particularly throughout the opening, where I didn't manage to detect any fruit or citrus accords. There's the tiniest hint of lavender, which is smoothed out with ginger and creamy soap nuances.

The heart is mostly lily and nuts, perhaps a little too floral and feminine at times. It actually reminds me of Emporio Armani White for Men. This fragrance is perhaps more woody though, with a slight hint of greeness.

The base is quite a likable, yet subtle, musky pine and vetiver blend. The drydown was the most masculine aspect of this fragrance in my opinion. I can't say that I find this fragrance unisex, but I will class it as a light masculine floral.

Perhaps for some, Romance for Men is mediocre and bland. I didn't mind the scent, I found it quite comforting and clean, which is something I need to smell on a man sometimes. All in all, it's a fragrance worth trying, even if it's just to see whether you love it or hate it.

Fair play I like this scent. Its very light, a summer fragrance for sure but it lasted on me about 4-5hrs.

One of those scents that are nice but I couldnt use a full 100ml bottle. I bought it in 2002. Sprayed some this year and its gone sour as it were - 9 years and unable to use it all.

10/10 - for shelf life in the bottle; but thats somewhat the point - it will last forever as its one of those smells that are nice but you just always seem to find an excuse to wear something else.

Can be a little strong at first but evolves into a very pleasant scent and just gets better by the hour. Wont offend anybody. I like to use it more in the summer.

This EDT has a very citrus and invigorating entry timber with a touch of orange dominant. His grade point average is passing very slowly and the smell of fresh wood but remain young and subtle citrus notes. Finally its base notes not detected because only the scent faded.

Slightly romantic, if his grades would be based would be more sweet or powerful. Hard on my skin for about five hours. Almost any time of year in preference to formal meetings.

My top favourite.
The ginger opening is kinda hidden, blended with the pistacho leaf.
The drydown turns to a very sexy sweet masculine smell.
Great Sillage.
