Product Description

Launched in 2013, Ralph Lauren Polo Red is marketed as an energizing and ferocious fragrance that best fits the fiery color red.

Created by perfumer Olivier Gillotin, the fragrance is created to depict the main qualities that exude masculinity and strength.

This scent gives you that invigorating and energizing scent that has amazing staying power.

The cologne is packaged in a characteristic red flacon available in 45 ml, 75 ml and 125 ml. The product is packaged in a relatively simpler design compared to other signature fragrances but it has this charismatic and elegant design that you can only expect from the well renowned Ralph Lauren.

Composition: If you are looking for a scent that gives you this high energy, the Ralph Laure Polo Red wouldn’t disappoint.

The notes of this fragrance perfectly blends the invigorating ingredients like cranberry, red grapefruit and lemon juice. The moment the fragrance opens up, you can smell the citrus and berry scents.

The heart of this fragrance uses lavender, red saffron and red sage. These are the mid notes that take over after the light scents. Coffee beans, red wood and hot amber add depth to this scent. The woody and spicy blend of this cologne is something that you should really like.

Best Use: With its strong ingredients and a combination of different components that energize the scent as a whole, it exudes a scent that is exotic and very manly making it a perfect choice for almost any occasion or any place.

Whenever I take on a few sprays of Ralph Lauren Polo Red, it feels as if I have this really high energy with me. But in my case, I don’t prefer to use it on a daily basis because I find the spicy and woody scent a bit strong to my preference.

But if you are the type who is really into this kind of fragrance, it is also a good daily scent wear.

Longevity: How about the longevity? The fragrance of this cologne is long lasting. I wasn’t surprised with its staying power especially since the product is marketed that way and taking a look at the ingredients used, you know that you have this strong scent that will last long.


My take on the Ralph Lauren Polo Red is quite divided. If one is going to rate this product base on its over-all quality, it is a good buy. Although there is nothing so special with the packaging, Ralph Lauren is still Ralph Lauren and not to mention that it is a signature fragrance.

The scent is quite strong but it is the kind of fragrance that is the complete embodiment of a strong and successful man, the kind of scent that some men would like and some wouldn’t enjoy.

So in the end, it all boils down to preference. In terms of longevity, the staying power is superb.

With all the things that this cologne has to offer, this is still a good choice.
