Ralph Lauren Polo Red

Inspired by the Ralph Lauren Car Collection, Red is suitably polished, slick, and commanding. It starts off sweet with clean notes of grapefruit and cranberry, then passes through a sensual saffron and sage middle stage before finally setting into a sweet breeze of cedar wood, amber, and coffee. Which is to say, it's a versatile scent – bright enough for day and sufficiently spicy for night. Either way, it's best suited for occasions you'd roll into with your vintage 1954 Ferrari 375 Plus.
