Twice a year, I add a new scent to my cologne collection. This season, it’s Polo Ralph Lauren’s Red cologne. With strong notes of red sage and red saffron balanced by subtle notes of fragrant coffee beans and burnt wood, this masculine scent is perfect for winter. It has an energizing feel to it, which is fitting for the name—“red” symbolizes a ferocious spirit and strong character. This spicy composition is the brainchild of famous nose, Olivier Gillotin.
This week, the scent was a perfect pairing for my plaid shirt and braided sweater. I’m trying to ration out the bottle because, Lord knows, I’ll end up bathing in it. Gotta love new cologne.
