Hello! Instead of a portfolio update this week (see the last one here), I thought I’d share what Tommy and I thought of Ralph Lauren’s newest sporty men’s fragrance. It was sent to us for free compliments of Influenster (click here to join!), but the opinions are all my and Tommy’s own!
I love getting VoxBoxes from Influenster! It is so fun to get little branded gifts, like this!
Fortunately, I am not above pimping out my hot fiance in exchange for gifts (so if you’re reading this, brands, feel free to keep them coming! Here’s the contact page!), at least to a degree. It is so much more interesting to have him involved than it is to have just me, especially on a day where I don’t do my hair or makeup, like this!
Polo Red Extreme review! https://t.co/tL6T91RM3V

Of course, I had to get his review of the cologne… He likes it better than he likes his own body odor (thank goodness – haha), but it has a hint of vanilla in it, and he isn’t overly fond of vanilla.
I didn’t like the scent at first, but it has grown on me! Additionally, we know that it is because it is intended to be a sporty type scent, which it is, but I don’t know that I like the word “extreme” in a cologne. It made me worried that it would be really strong and overpowering, which is not my favorite thing in a scent!
It lasted well throughout the day, and Tommy really liked how randomly over the course of the day he could get whiffs of it, which were nice!
I like it enough that I am glad that that Influenster sent it to us. Thanks, Influenster!
