A NEW FRAGRANCE
I was very surprised when a week or so ago when a small box landed through my letterbox and fell onto the mat with the rest of my mail for the day. I had no idea what was inside and so when I opened the small white box I saw that it held a small (6ml miniature size) perfume which had been sent from Lacoste as a free sample. Naturally I was very pleased; I don't often get freebies and, on the very rare occasions that I do, they aren't often much use to me. Apparently I was chosen this time because I had 'liked' the Lacoste Facebook page which made me a fan of theirs. The miniature was in a 6ml glass bottle with a roll-on top. I immediately took of the lid and applied a small amount to my wrist. I straight away thought it was an impressive fragrance. As I had some money still unspent from Christmas I thought I would treat myself to a larger bottle of this fragrance and then I could enjoy the perfume at home and keep the miniature sample to take on holiday, as it's an ideal size for packing in a suitcase; it doesn't take up barely any space in a toiletry bag or weigh too much either.
It isn't often that I buy myself a fragrance (I usually rely on gifts) but, as my father-in-law had sent the Christmas money I thought of it more as a gift from him than of me being extravagant. It's always nice to get a freebie but seeing as Lacoste is one of my favourite makes of both perfumes and aftershaves, and it being a new fragrance from them made it an even better surprise.
WHAT LACOSTE SAYS (about Eau de Lacoste)
"Eau de Lacoste, the spirit of Lacoste is a feminine fragrance that captures the simple sensuality of delicate flowers and pure white cotton on skin. Modern, iconic and breathtakingly simple. EAU DE LACOSTE is built on a classical fragrance structure, where the fragrance evolves smoothly from top to base notes over time, but superimposing modern ingredients on traditional to generate a light fragrance profile."
THE NOTES WITHIN
Juicy White Pineapple, Calabrian Mandarin, Calabrian Bergamot
Pineapple Flower, Jasmine Sambac
Sandalwood, Vetyver, Vanilla, Peru Balsam
On initially spraying this perfume upon my skin and smelling it, I would have said that the top notes contained fruit ingredients and something more which must have been the bergamot. I'm not really sure if I would have detected the pineapple scent without first looking up the notes. I feel that the next notes were deeper and of a more sensual touch but perhaps not quite so sweet. I have to say that I am no expert on perfume notes and didn't even know about the different notes until I started to read reviews a few years ago, but I now always try to detect the different smells blended in different perfumes. I like to do this throughout the time of wearing any perfume to try to see how the smell changes and whether it's lasted well.
DO I SMELL NICE?
Why yes, thank you I believe I smell even better than usual! I think this is a beautiful fragrance. Admittedly it is very sweet when first spraying, although it was still a hit with me from the start. I did wonder though if some would find it too sweet, maybe even sickly, but then after a short time the middle notes evolved and I found the aroma became much more subtle but still remained ultimately feminine.
It reminded me a little of perfumes by Oscar de la Renta because of its very feminine scent. I thought if I had smelt this without knowing which perfume house it was from I would guess on it being an expensive purchase.
For the purpose of this review I sprayed a little of this on my arm above my wrist and the scent lasted all day, albeit quite faintly. On initially spraying this I thought that judging by its early strength it would stay strong for a long time but I don't think it did. The scent will linger for hours but in a faint and soft way. As long as you're able to top up on Eau de Lacoste throughout the day then this is a beautiful perfume, in my opinion. But, even without re-applying it's a very pretty fragrance and already has become one of my favourites.
I believe this perfume from Lacoste is suitable for both day and evening wear. It has a light, fresh aroma, making it ideal for daytime wear but I also think its sweet, sensuous and highly feminine scent will make it also suitable for evenings out and special occasions.
I think Eau De Lacoste will suit any female who likes dreamy feminine fragrances. It is, in my opinion, a very versatile perfume and worth having in any fragrance collection.
The spherical container for this fragrance is both pretty and feminine. I think the sphere is supposed to put one in mind of magic. The lid is white with its base being of golden thread, and a Lacoste label hanging decoratively from this. The famous Lacoste crocodile appears on the bottle in gold. The bottle itself is pale and of white and pink.
