When I found out about Ralph Lauren’s newest fragrance, Polo Red Extreme I was intrigued by its advertising tagline: “A powerful, masculine scent designed for the thrill-seeker who pushes limits to the edge and thrives on extreme sensations.” When I tried, it did not smell like I thought it would, which was a nice surprise.
For some reason, I thought I would end up feeling like a Sir – and not in a good sense. On the contrary, the blood-orange opening is refreshingly invigorating. Almost immediately, the fragrance reveals its black coffee and ebony notes settling into a dark, creamy and woody scent that I’m obsessed with.
Master perfumer Olivier Gillotin knocks one out of the park with his latest creation because Polo Red Extreme is a perfume infused with energy and a rich, bold, and overall exotic aroma. Which makes it the perfect signature scent for a guy like me, whose evenings and weekends are lined up with dinners and parties. – Obviously, I’m exaggerating a little, some nights- most often than not- I stay home and just Netflix and Chill.
All jokes aside, this oriental gourmand fragrance, will stand out and linger for hours. Just be mindful when spritzing it, since Polo Red Extreme is an intense scent, people will notice you when you make an entrance. However, you wouldn’t want them to clear the room, would you?
POLO RED EXTREME is available at select retailers NOW. The POLO RED EXTREME line-up includes 125ml EDP [$95], 75ml EDP [$75] and 40ml EDP [$55].
