Polo Red Extreme

I’ve always been a cologne guy. And I still remember the first couple of colognes that I obsessed over during my high-school days. I wouldn’t leave the house without dousing myself in one scent or the other. These days, I’m not quite as bad, and I typically only spritz on certain occasions. Like a work meeting or a date night. 

Speaking of date nights, Zack has never been a big fan of cologne. Wearing it himself or when I wear it. But a few weeks back I set out to change that. I was head over heals for the new Polo Red Extreme from the first day I tried it out. And to my surprise it turned out that he was as well. So much so that I bought him some that very day, and he’s worn it every day since. Turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks!

Zack and I don’t agree on a lot (opposites really do attract), but one thing we do agree upon is a love for coffee. So it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that he would also have an affinity for Polo Red Extreme as well. Seeing as how it’s the perfect combo of vibrant blood orange, rich black coffee essence and black ebony wood. 

Usually the boyfriend complains about my cologne being too strong or not smelling “manly” enough. But with this one, he has nothing to complain about. It is a powerful, masculine scent perfect for a day at the office or a night out on the town. And if you’ve got a picky man in your life, like I do, then you’re in luck. Because honestly – with this scent there’s nothing to complain about. 

Polo Red Extreme is composed of:

TOP NOTES: Blood Orange Accord, Red Ginger, Red Pineapple Accord
MID NOTES: Black Coffee Essence, Red Saffron, Red Sage
BASE NOTES: Black Ebony Wood Accord, Ambery Woods Accord, Cocoa Absolute

These new ingredients channel the thrill of pushing limits and sensations to the extreme. To add a jolt of energy, Gillotin uses a high level of natural coffee, as well as a special technique of coffee C02, giving the impression of freshly ground smooth coffee beans. Blood orange adds energizing freshness, while black ebony woods create long-lastingness and warmth. The result? An “intoxicatingly bold and rugged scent.”

It took me some time to get used to my shorter hair, but I’ll be the first to say that even though I was a fan of my long hair I love the ease that came with the chop. My grooming arsenal, once full of smoothing serums and dry shampoos, is slowly but surely being replaced with crèmes, gels, and pomades.

Recently, I added two new additions from the Old Spice lineup to my medicine cabinet, and so far, love the results. 

The Old Spice Pomade is perfect for those days where I’m keeping things under control and going for a more slicked back, put together look. While the Old Spice Putty is my go-to for normal day-to-day activities for a fun, disheveled look that I’m able to mess with throughout the day.

Old Spice has made it easy for guys to look their best without breaking a sweat for years now, with their grooming lineup there’s something out there for everyone, and Amazon is the perfect one-stop shop to stock up on all your Old Spice wants and needs.
