The Last Minute Gift Guide: Intense


What would a complete holiday gift guide be without fragrances?

Therefore, if you’re looking for last minute stocking stuffer, or just in a need of a new cologne, you should definitely consider Polo Red Intense by Ralph Lauren.

Not only is Ralph Lauren one of my favorite American designers of all-time, but when it comes to colognes he always seems to get it right!


I already discussed how to choose the right cologne, so I won’t go into detail about that again.

However, if there was one thing that I forgot to add to that list, it was to always keep the season and climate in mind!

For instance, some colognes are more suitable for the spring and summer because of their floral or fruity undertones. While others perform better during the fall and winter because of their woodsy or earthy undertones.

In my opinion, Polo Red Intense is definitely more of a fall/winter cologne.

Keep in mind, I’m not a cologne connoisseur because I really just got interested in fragrances over the summer. Hence the reason, I surveyed my friends about some of their favorite colognes.

However, since this cologne is a blend of red ginger, rich leather, with a subtle hint of coffee, it has quickly become my fall/winter cologne of choice.


Needless to say, if we cross paths from now until about March, I will probably be smelling like Polo Red Intense!

As always, thanks for reading!
