Loud, Spicy, Yummy
This is not your grandma's Shalimar, nor your mother's, nor yours, yet it is a recognizable oriental fragrance. I love the purple bottle with the turquoise cap common to all the "Ralphs", I love the name Hot, and while the other Ralphs have been disappointingly tame to the point of bland, I love this fun, over-the-top take on the oriental class of fragrance: loud, spicy, and yummy. It sounds like breakfast: milk, fig, cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup (of all things!) figure in, and yet it is not a caricature, it is, I'd say, Pop Art as fragrance.

I have four fragrances in my wardrobe that have in common the spicy/vanillic thing we call oriental—beginning with Shalimar of course—while each strikes out on its own. If Shalimar is the template, the other three, all 21st c creations, are its modern variations, each with that modern gourmand sensibility, though still recognizable as relatives of the grande dame. Succinctly:

•Carlos Santana I wear salsa dancing,
•Queen Latifah with my late mom's mink,
•Ralph Hot with my yellow Converse All-Stars, and - - -
•Shalimar I wear to bed.

Ralph Hot is Hotter Than Cool
Never was a bottle less appropriate for its contents than is the one in which RALPH HOT is found. But, as a linear vanilla, this is certainly wearable enough--for those who like gourmand scents.

Although I question the coherence of calling RALPH HOT a RALPH flanker, and view the decision to use the same bottle mold as a diaphanous cost-cutting measure, I am nonetheless happy to be able to report that RALPH HOT bears zero resemblance to its namesake.

RALPH HOT is a linear vanilla fragrance that to my nose is vaguely redolent of Chico Sticks, a junior high school candy which is covered with sugary toasted coconut and has a crumbly Butterfinger-like substance inside. Coconut is not listed among the notes, so this must be some sort of olfactory illusion, an emergent "note" of sorts... Or perhaps the designers consider coconut a "spice"?

RALPH HOT also seems to my nose to contain patchouli, which is not listed as a note. I am wondering whether fig leaf may be combining with some of the other many ingredients to produce this illusion as well. (Though, again, I suppose that patchouli could be a spice!)

As with the other RALPHS, I would put RALPH HOT at the quality level of Victoria's Secret SEXY LITTLE THINGS or VERY SEXY fragrances--clearly a lower tier than some of Ralph Lauren's offerings, such as PURE TURQUOISE or SAFARI... But it's quite clear from the packaging and price that the entire RALPH line is intended for a less sophisticated market (say, eaters of Chico Sticks...). This is a gourmand scent for them. The staying power and sillage are pretty good for an edt.

Yummy fruits
So sugary, so sweet, yet surprisingly lovely, and dare I say addictive.

It smells a lot like an icecream called 'Splice', which is basically vanilla icecream covered in an icy layer of sugary lime. Just like the icecream, this fragrance would be best enjoyed on a hot Summer's day.

The opening is mostly sugared fruits, however the drydown becomes rather warm and I can detect a subtle note that smells somewhat like maple syrup hidden in there somewhere. Ralph Hot turns out to be a very gourmand experience.

The sillage and the lasting strength of this fragrance is simply amazing. I certainly recommend Ralph Hot to lovers of vanilla based scents like Dior's Hypnotic Poison and Thierry Mugler's Innocent.
