This cologne smells amazing, and my boyfriend & I both love it! I will be comparing the Polo Red Extreme to my boyfriend's all time favorite cologne, the original Polo Blue. He still prefers the blue, but thinks that they still smell similar, which I agree that Ralph Lauren colognes do have a distinct lovely & high quality scent to them. Polo Red Extreme has more sweeter and spicy notes than Polo Blue does. I personally think that Red Extrene is more unique of the two and you could pick it out of a crowd, while Polo Blue still smells like a high quality cologne, but is more of that basic men's aftershave scent like a lot of brands aim for. The blood orange I believe it is really stands out on cold sniff of this cologne, but is perfectly balanced so it is still very manly. It also changes to the smell of your skin and the orange becomes slightly sweeter and there is a comforting inscency vibe to it. I received this product compliemtary from Influenster for testing purposes.
