Ralph Lauren Polo Red Eau de Toilette | For Men

Ralph Lauren's new Polo Red ($61-$79 ; Sephora Stores, sephora.com) for men, a new launch for late summer-fall, is described as a bold, masculine scent with notes of Red Grapefruit, Saffron and Redwood - a little spicy with a hint of citrus. The folks at Ralph Lauren sent me a bottle to test out and I passed it on promptly to my husband, after talking a whiff of it myself. **Press Samples

Spice Bomb by Viktor & Rolf is one of my all time favorite fragrances for men and I quite like it on myself from time to time. Polo Red is definitely a lot more stronger (initially, although it dries down to a very softer, musky scent) and citrusy and my husband really likes it this time of the year. The bottle is well designed, simple and goes well with the fiery description of the scent. Unfortunately, it doesn't last very long - its completely gone after 2-3 hours and there's hardly any trace of the fragrance left behind. Its a nice fragrance, a little more on the unisex side than completely masculine, but a little bit of lasting power would have made it perfect!
