Product Information:

Celebrating the timeless appeal of the sporting lifestyle, Ralph Lauren's legendary Polo fragrance blends the very best of wood, leather and other natural scents to convey a handsome, enduring character.

Unfortunately Polo EDT is also a popular product with counterfeiters. And be forewarned, counterfeiters are sophisticated and make every attempt to visually duplicate the authentic product. Although they still do make mistakes, there are constantly new versions marketed to correct previously identified errors.

Counterfeit products are often listed on eBay and sold to unsuspecting buyers as "genuine" or "100% authentic" items at prices close to retail. If you are in doubt that your fragrance is authentic, simply compare it to an authentic product at an authorized retailer.

The scent of counterfeit products is often weak, and may last only minutes. Authentic products should last for hours. The ingredients in counterfeit fragrances are unknown, and may cause rashes, infections and respiratory problems.

Sizes:
2 oz. and 4 oz. eau de toilette. 8 oz. spray.

Made in the USA.

Warnings / Hazards:

Ingredients are unknown in counterfeit fragrance products.

Counterfeit fragrances have been found to contain dangerous ingredients like arsenic, beryllium, DEHP (a plasticizer with health risks) and cadmium (all known carcinogens), urine and antifreeze, along with high levels of aluminum and dangerous levels of bacteria.

Recommended Action:

Buy authentic Ralph Lauren Polo from authorized Ralph Lauren retailers or directly from the Ralph Lauren website.

If you purchased a counterfeit from an e-commerce website (including eBay, Amazon, AliExpress) keep the counterfeit product as proof for your dispute, the manufacturer or authorities. If returned, the seller will claim it is not counterfeit, or re-sell it to another unsuspecting consumer. Contact your credit-card company and dispute the charges -- you have the counterfeit product as proof. Leave negative "Counterfeit" feedback for the seller.
