I was recently on the lookout for a new fragrance after finishing two bottles of Calvin Klein fragrances which I bought in the Summer Sales last year. As someone who has always been fond of Lacoste Fragrances I decided to pick up a bottle of this particular fragrance after a couple of tests in my local Boots store. I had cashed in a dooyoo voucher for amazon and decided to include a bottle of Lacoste Elegance in my basket on amazon. I decided upon the 50ml bottle which you can pick up for £14.84 on the website and the fragrance also comes in 30 and 90ml bottles which range from between £9.95 and £23.85 which is very good for a fragrance of this quality.
As mentioned before the fragrance is available in 30ml, 50ml and 90ml bottles. Lacoste are a company that seem to subtly change their bottle for each fragrance and as you can see with Lacoste Elegance they have gone for a more common shape than say Lacoste Essential for instance. The word Lacoste is written down the front of the bottle and the darker golden coloured fragrance shines through. I feel that the bottle shows that usual Lacoste quality which they show with their line of fragrances.
Now we come to the all important scent test. I have always liked Lacoste fragrances for their good quality scent and their staying power. They aim to again combine these two attributes here and here are the results in my opinion. This is a fragrance that is quite refined yet has Lacoste's trademark sparkle and fresh fun scent. This has become one of my favourite fragrances from Lacoste for it's freshness and also for it's suitability for a number of ocassions.
This fragrance kicks off with bright and fresh notes of peppermint, Juniper and tyhme to give a minty scent which is very pleasant and has the absolute right balance between freshness and powerful scent. The top notes typically last around 3-4 hours before blending into the middle or "heart" notes.
This gives the fragrance an interesting blend of fruit with Raspberry but also a muskier tint thanks to the inclusion of nutmeg, black pepper and cardamom. This gives the fragrance a spicy yet sweet tinge which just works so well. The heart notes last well for around 3-4 hours before blending into the final notes.
This fragrance ends wonderfully with the combination of sandalwood, cedarwood with ambery and more musky notes which is topped off with a subtle chocolate scent. The base notes last for around 3-4 hours before gently fading into a light scent.
**Using the Fragrance**
I would recommend this fine fragrance for men who like a nice fresh, varied fragrance that is suitable for many ocassions. This fragrance goes as well on nights out as it does for days at work or everyday use. This fragrance suits a wide age range of men. This is also a fragrance that women should love on their man. This has been a popular fragrance since it's release in 2009 and it's not hard to understand why.
This is another big hit from Lacoste. It combines staying power with a very fine fragrance which has already proved a big seller. There are some great deals on this fragrance at the moment so go and try this fragrance in the store and then grab yourself a bargain. This has reminded me just how much I like Lacoste fragrances. It may have the same effect on you if you like them too. This has been very highly praised in the field.
lacoste elegance is my current fragnance . personnally i thinhk its great . to be honest i have a had a fair few girls tell me that im smelling good and thats allways a good thing isnt it. it was a fairly simple case deisgin but as soon as you look at the botttle you know why its called lactose elegance . it all looks very professional if you ask me , and it has quite a sweet smell but i like it . lacoste do have a lot of aftershaves / pefrumes on the market and if you want to splash out then buy the elegance but if you dont want to splash out then i advice you buy lacoste red . its been out for a while but if you havent tried it then definatly get a tester from the high street and make your own mind up .
