Seeing Red Over "Red"...
Polo Red opens with a very sweet synthetic smelling candied red berry accord. As the fragrance moves to its early heart the sweetness tones down slightly with a subtle coffee undertone joining the candied red fruit as a synthetic vague woody accord begins to take hold gradually. During the late dry-down the cloying sweetness nearly subsides as the synthetic smelling woods take control and now dominate with the candied fruit all but gone leaving just the subtle coffee undertone in support. Projection is below average and so is longevity at 5-6 hours on skin.

Oh how the mighty have fallen... The original Polo was a masterpiece that I used to wear with abandon in my younger days and still completely enjoy today in its vintage form. That was the first offering from the Ralph Lauren brand and by far its best. Not many of the other releases from Ralph Lauren over the years have been worth even a mention (save the also excellent discontinued Polo Crest), and Red will join the rest of the duds in the line, only it is even worse if possible. The candied fruit open is so sickeningly sweet and synthetic (in a bad way) that it sets an early disappointing tone for the rest of the annoying composition to come. The heart and late dry-down is primarily a norlimbanol (synthetic woods) bomb with only the coffee undertone to distinguish it from so many other poor compositions on the market. The bottom line is Polo Red is a complete disappointment and an insult to fragrance lovers and Ralph Lauren customers around the world. While its $76 retail price for a 100ml bottle won't break the bank for many, it is not even worth one tenth that price and should be avoided at all cost, earning a "poor" to "very poor" 1.5 stars out of 5 rating.
