With the recent change in season and now being officially in summer, you might be on the look out for a new fresh fragrance perfect for the warmer days! I might have just the scent in the brand new Ralph Lauren Polo Red Extreme.
Built on the popular formula of Polo Red, the brand new extreme version is a powerful sweet, oriental fragrance designed for the thrill seeker who likes extreme sensations. The scent is the work of perfumer Olivier Gillotin, he’s made quite a bold choice in the selection of ingredients, black coffee essence being one! But I have to say it really works!
This energising fragrance opens with top notes of; blood orange accord, red ginger & red pineapple accord
Heart notes include; black coffee essence, red saffron & red sage
Woody base notes of; black ebony wood accord, ambery woods accord & cocoa absolute
As soon as I opened and tried this scent I knew it was going to be a winner! It’s fresh, sweet and fruity, which for me makes it an ideal pick for summer! I couldn’t detect the black coffee essence in the heart, but once it’s dried down it leaves a sweet, woody and seductive fragrance.
It’s a very concentrated scent, you won’t need any more than 2 sprays per application. Anymore and it’d be too much and just smell like you’d been bathing in it! As you’d expect from a concentrated fragrance the longevity is good, lasting for most of the day.
If your looking for a sweet and fruity new scent for summer, give Polo Red Extreme a try! I’ve certainly been impressed with it since I tried it! It is quite addictive… I’ve worn it most days for work! It’s available in 75 and 125ml versions from House of Fraser.
