I had not heard of Ralph Lauren Purple Label EDT before reading about it here. I called Polo's toll free number and talked to a nice woman who sent me a sample. I expected to get a little card with a one-time sample on it. Instead she sent me three small sample spray bottles, each about a 1/4 ounce or so. I was skeptical about the tobacco but she assured me it was tobacco flower and smelled great. And it sure did. I then found a great buy on it at price grabber for about $13 less than Polo's. so, I ordered it. Meanwhile, I got a great deal from strawberry.net on Chanel Pour monsieur cologne which I've had before for many years. Great stuff. A bit of vanilla scent.
