Rated 4.49 out of 5 stars
I really wanted to love this. I am very thankful to try it and it is a part of my rotation now. It has most of my demands met with cologne…especially with it being an eau de parfum and not an eau de toilette. Parfum is SUPPOSED to last longer on the skin at least through the work day.
First off let's discuss the scents:
Vetiver, Cedarwood, Carly Sage, Lavender, Orange, Grapefruit, Apple.
It's a very inviting scent but it also gives off a status feeling of power or nobility.
This is a woodsy, tid but musky, clean fruity light scent but there's something I dislike in it. I can't quite put my finger on it. I believe it's the Sage top note. It gives off a very unique scent. That has me wondering if it's good or bad to a 3rd persons nose. Now this isn't bad enough where I'm not going to wear it but it's just something my nose isn't used to smelling. I haven't received any compliments from it thus far. Which my standard go-to cologne gets me compliments by the dozen daily.
Bottle is very sleek and elegant.
It's an all season scent definitely fall scent.
The scent is powerful with a bit of seduction.
This is a unisex scent in my opinion as the Initial application fades it leaves a very nice smell that I feel is unisex.
The flip top makes it a bit of a hindrance to use at times .
The scent while being a Parfum doesn't last long at all. Maybe 3-4hours and will need to be reapplied. I don't carry my bottle with me as I shouldn't have to. The difficulty here is that it's very strong when initially applied so you think it's enough but as a few hours goes by it vanishes. If Ralph Lauren could fix this as it's surprising to see a parfum that doesn't last long I would rate it higher.
Would I recommend….
For those who have a large cologne/perfum collection already; yes I would. It would make a nice addition to the rotation.
For those who don't have many fragrances and are looking for their new go-to main parfum/cologne; no I wouldn't.
I will say that Ralph's Club, is a step in the right direction. For several years now, Ralph Lauren's Designer House, has released quite a few duds. They've been boring, and also a less than exemplary performance. In fact the only Polo cologne I'll recommend with confidence is Red Extreme. That's to be used in the cold season, and if only they could make ones like this, they'd be known for their projection. I'd like to thank Influenster for this free sample. With that in mind I'll guide you the best I know, to see where this fragrance stands up on its own.
First off Ralph's Club is extremely office safe. It won't offend anyone, as it has notes of lavender, sage, Virginia cedar, and vetiver. You're probably thinking, "that's only a few ingredients." That would be accurate, but that seems to be the new approach. It's my opinion that Ralph Lauren, is way late to the blue party. This is a blue style cologne, but it has nothing on the Chanel or YSL's that have been out for years. They are trying for a bluish style, and I do like how the sage and vetiver mix. Unfortunately very synthetic.
This does give it a pleasant flavor. It is more mature than the boring Polo Blue and atrocious Polo Black. Yet it lacks the octanes of ambroxan, to deliver a scent that lasts more than a few hours. Some will like this a lot, but I'd rather go with YSL Y EDP than this one. That one is more alluring, and has a longer service life. As it stands this one is average, and it could be useful to some, who do want a more toned down experience. This is one for business or casual though, but admittedly I'm of the mind that cologne should be a little edgy.
When this was released in 2021, I was excited as, with the marketing Ralph Lauren might have a winner. Yet the expression "the horse is already out of the barn" applies here. There are so many blue fragrances, and they took too long to make a substantial dent. Nothing earth shattering, although vetiver is one of my favorite scents in the warmer times of year.
It's an opinion, but this lacks gusto and a scent trail. This is more of a skin scent. If you can hold off, and get it at a discounter, that would be a good idea. This is a guess, but I believe this is their attempt to compete with YSL. It's not even close, but I will concede this is a pleasant smelling cologne. This one won't get you attention or noticed, but some prefer that. The sample packs atomizer was quite good, and history shows Ralph Lauren, has done well in this area. I'll put it in the average section, and if you're looking for a safe one for spring and summer, this one could be helpful.

Classy and masculine cologne. It's woody and strong. Lots of citrus and leather notes that will hit you. Will also mellow out into a powdery and spicy scent. Will give a very permanent impression on others who can catch it on you. Great as a gift for a man in your family. Top notes are Cardamom, Grapefruit and Green Mandarin; middle notes are Orris, Lavender, Sage and Geranium; base notes are Olibanum, Leather, Patchouli and Balsam Fir.

Ralphms Club by Ralph Lauren is a pleasing scent. Very masculine, lean's green to my nose. Maybe the Vetiver note. I do like it.
It performed quite well on my skin, 6-7h, projection is average. Will get you compliments.
I already own many perfumes that smell similar. Would recommend to someone who's new into colognes though.

I love how it gives off a fresh notes of lavender scent with a rich sweet and spicy cardamom, and a nice flower scent of vetiver…. Goes on strong in the beginning and scent pretty much last all day with a light lavender fresh scent…. Blends in with your body chemistry giving you that fresh smell all day. (Incentivized)

I gave this cologne to my boyfriend for his birthday and he was over the moon. I was very worried about the patchouli smell to be too prevalent but I could barely notice it. It is a little bit musky but not in a bad way. There is no sweetness to this cologne but it's perfectly different in every way. I'm very pleased with it.
viswan from undisclosed
It smells wonderful. It has lavender and woody notes. It lasts a long time. I have received couple of complements. It's good for an evening. It's very masculine.

I received this fragrance for free from Influenster & Ralph Lauren in exchange for my honest review. That being said, I can tell you the moments after it arrived and I did a test spray, my boyfriend came in the room and said, "that smells amazing!" I told him what it was and asked him if he wanted to try it and he jumped at the chance. Perhaps I'm biased but I think it smells even better on!
Aside from just the smell, the entire packaging is awesome. The bottle features a flip top so no need to worry about losing the cap: and it's made of a mix of matte and reflective black metals. It's very chic looking and sure to look great sitting on your dresser.
So all in all I give this colognes 5 out of 5!

I loved receiving this parfum for my husband to try. It has a nice scent that is very masculine and woodsy. A little bit goes a long way and lasts all day. It's refreshing and musky, I love how it smells on my husband. A nice one to try for an all-year scent.

Yes, after i tried the Ralph's Club by Ralph Lauren; first word "wow!". Smells good. Not that strong which i like, and I think it's the scent that you wear perfect for a night date or a party. This scent is sexy too. Per Ralph Lauren, this fragrance is crafted with highly concentrated, natural ingredients. Fresh notes of Lavandin, Spicy Cardamom, Vetiver and warm Patchouli. I just love it, can't stop smelling it. i definitely recommend this "parfum".

This scent gives me loads of joy each time I apply it! I've already picked up another bottle of this parfum the sample was truly a gift 🎁! I typically perfer woodsy / Tabacco scents but this fresh long lasting parfum lasts exactly the time I'd like it to ever time! I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys oceanic scents with mild notes of pattuli ! Don't sleep on this one! Bang for the buck also! 👏

This cologne is great for going the distance, as it lasted with me the whole day at work. I did not wear a lot because to me, the scent is a little on the heavier side and I usually prefer something lighter. Ralph's Club is more on the mature side, in my opinion, but I could imagine many could enjoy its essence. Before buying, I would want to have known that it smells more like something I would use for a formal event. All in all though, the fragrance is good, so it gets a solid 4 stars.
humerasu from undisclosed
Long lasting but not overwhelmingly! It's a unisex scent that my husband I both can use. The smell is woody and smooth. It has hints of vetiver and lavandin. If you like warm scents like me, go for this.
juanmnj from undisclosed

I had gotten a sample of this through another place and my son loved the smell. He wears this now all the time and get lots of complements.
paull26 from undisclosed
This fragrance here is something that you would like to smell everyday. Its aromatic, woody and lavender combination that will last for a long time and people will be asking you of what smells is that.

I have tried few other flankers that came by the name of Parfum for the original EDP version, lot of them wer dissappointing. But this one impressed me. Longevity solid 5-8hrs. After 2-3 hrs its more of a skin scent but you get wiffs & will project maybe few inches. The pakaging is good, I really like the cap. And last but not the least scent, they have done great job keeping that mature & sophasticated smell in Parfum, added more concentration & has that dark aromatic dry down which is the best part fo me. Solid 8.5/10

This smells very good!!! My husband doesn't normally wear cologne, but he sprayed this before he went to work, and I didn't want him to leave the house!
A little goes a long way, so be careful to not "take a bath" in it!!!
mattc34 from undisclosed
This one is nice if not a bit non-descript. The lavender is the loudest note in my opinion. Can be worn anywhere and anytime but won't be the most attention grabbing.
chaset8 from undisclosed
It's a good fragrance but it's kinda basic and doesn't really stand out in any specific ways, it's not bad and not amazing either, has lots of utility though.
juns from undisclosed
This is a very floral and roses fragrance. It is pretty weak unfortunately so you need to put at least 7 sprays. It does not last very long but the scent you are getting is worth it
Tommy Mc from undisclosed
Long lasting, great fragrance!
Bought Blue and this Club topped it.
