Ralph Lauren is an American fashion designer known for his popular Polo line and other lines of clothing, accessories and fragrances. Founded in 1967 and initially offering a line of men's ties, the company grew quickly in a short time and Ralph Lauren has since become a staple of preppy style.
Spanning the range from casual sportswear to formal wear, Ralph Lauren's clothing and fragrances reflect a classic American style, and often impart a rugged, outdoorsy image.
Ralph Lauren Polo partnered with L'Oréal to introduce fragrances in 1978. Fragrances over the years include: Polo (1978), Polo Sport (1994), Romance (1998), Ralph (2000) and Polo Blue (2002).
