I was/am one of the hyperbole people. To be fair though, the last time I tried a more modern Polo was around maybe 2014-2015, which seems to be the nadir of the reformulation crisis, with some releases apparently having rebounded since then.
I wonder if some replacement materials became available or less expensive between then and now? Or maybe we're all mistaken. This is a very anecdotal observation. Just seems like I see a lot "that 2014 batch, good lord...stay away" type of statements.
I'm with you. I bought a bottle at CVS about 2 years ago and it was awful. It actually stunk. I took it back.
I'll try to sample a new batch and see if it's improved. I'm not a hype dude...I smell what I smell. My wife and I both thought the new juice stank, and we love vintage Polo.
