The Olfactory Factor

It’s no small feat to conceive, create, and market a men’s fragrance. At long last, Polo Red has arrived as a bold new cologne. So, how exactly did an abstract concept turn into this lively, masculine scent? “Every World of Polo fragrance starts with a color, and in taking inspiration from its renowned car collection, red was the obvious choice,” says David Suffit of Ralph Lauren Fragrances.

“We needed the fragrance ‘nose,’ Olivier Gillotin, to create a scent that was red and bring to life the story behind our fragrance,” notes Suffit. Gillotin and team identified a powerful trio of ingredients—fresh red grapefruit, spicy red saffron, and deep red wood. “In this case, the concept was so well-defined, logical, and well thought out that finding the fragrance that embodied the concept was quite intuitive.”
