I'm 31 and recently started wearing ralph lauren fragrances. I really like the ralph fragrance, and romance beyond. I am not really a fan of the original romance though it too sweet for me. I have noticed over the years, the initial spray of perfume means nothing, the way a fragrance transforms on the skin and smells later, is everything! This is strong at first, but I smell it all day and it smells amazing on me hours later. I really, really love this and hope they keep it around! You really cannot go wrong with anything ralph lauren. I have no idea why it took me so long to try it.
