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.
