Ralph Lauren Blue
Blue has always been my favourite colour and anything that reminds me of the colour of ocean is an instant favourite. Even though my perfume preference has changed over the years, Ralph Lauren Blue will always stay in my collection.
When I was in my mid 20s, I was quite obsessed with Ralph Lauren Blue. I first discovered it on a Cleo Magazine perfume strip, one sniff and I was immedietly hooked. It was the kind of the scent that I gravitate towards back in the days, fresh white florals and never sticky sweet, a preppy scent I suppose.

Ralph Lauren Blue was released in 2003, created by perfumers David Nagel and Pierre Negrin. This has strong notes of jasmine and lily of the valley which is the first burst of scent that you'll immediately noticed upon first spray. A white floral scent that doesn't smell sharp and soapy on me. As it dries down, it slowly turns into a musky, delicate floral scent.
It is one of those scent that changes according to body chemistry, so you'll definitely need to test this out on your skin to experience it's true scent. As for sillage and longevity, it stays soft and subtle, though it does have medium staying power and last longer than I'd expected for an edt.
