Well after getting my partner into wearing lacoste red aftershave, I decided to treat him to another aftershave in the range for his birthday, and this time is was lacoste essential.
This one comes in a square cardboard box, of green and silver, with the lacoste logo to the front. The inner of the box, is a lime green colour stiffened cardboard which hold the bottle in place.
The bottle is this time, made from clear, transparent glass (the liquid inside however gives, of a slight light green hue to it) and is a rounded square shape. The lid is again the usual metal lid, accustomed to lacoste aftershave, and pops of easily to reveal the metal atomiser spray below.
The fragrance comes in sizes of 40ml, 75ml and 125ml. I purchased the 125ml, on special offer in Superdrug for £28.99. There is also a gift set available compromising of the 75ml bottle of fragrance, and a 75ml aftershave balm. It comes in EDT form, meaning it is more concentrated than an EDP, however, this is not a fast fading aftershave, and provides a long lasting aroma.
The scent has a real fresh, citrusy feel to it, but it slightly over-powering on first scoosh.
The fragrance comprises of tomato leaves, citrus,fruity and watery top notes.
The heart notes are a combination of black pepper, and a floral accord including rose notes.
Sandalwood and patchouli, are this fragrance base notes.
It begins of rather citrusy as I previously stated, but fades into more musky, masculine notes with time.
Lacoste market this aftershave as a 'citrus, fruity scent for men, for everyday wear'.
This scent is widly avaiable, as it was introduced to the market by in 2005, and can be picked up for bargain prices. This one has been a bit of a hit and a miss, as I personally like the scent, but my partner claims it to be too feminine when the citrusy notes are storng, so therefore rarely wears it.
But I'd say give it a try, if you like fresh citusy scent then this ones for you...
Lacoste Essential - Eau de Toilette for men
Contents: 75 ml
Lacoste is a brand which comes originally from France and was founded in 1933 by Rene Lacoste and André Gillier. It is a brand which focuses on selling among other (expensive) clothes, shoes, watches and perfumes and stands out for the logo of a crocodile. For me, the brand is best known for its polo shirts and is known for the sporty but expensive nature of its products. I do not buy it often, but just had to get this scent.
A little bit about the look, because I do not think it's the most important about a fragrance. The bottle looks good and appealing. The bottle is transparent and looks very natural of what really suits the scent itself, which is nice and cool. The box where the scent comes in has a striking bright color and is indeed is green with the logo in white. On the back you will find further product information.
The smell is pretty strong, but is especially notable for its freshness when you put it on. You notice the smell, but it doesn't turn your stomach. It is fresh and sweet at the same time, for me a good combination. This fragrance can also be used in any situation because he is not too strong. Sometimes you have very heavy smell that can only be good for the evening. This scent can also easily put on for going to work. The smell stays for long enough during the day.
The combination of freshness and sweetness, I think is a perfect fragrance every situation like going out of even going to work. It gives you the feeling of freshness and give you just a little boost you may need after you've been to the gym. I think this scent for every man is appropriate, because the smell is not too heavy. But it is a scent that remains during the day.Definitely a must if you are looking for a refreshing scent!
My boyfriend wears this scent and been a fan of it for a few years. Although I like this smell on him I don't think this is something I would have picked out myself.
This is a very masculine scent, it has woody, fresh smell with fruity undertones. I can always tell when my boyfriend has applied this aftershave because it is very distinctive and it lasts a long time.
I think that a lot of aftershaves on the market have a feminine smell to them but you can definitely tell that this scent was developed for men. I'd describe this as a classic aftershave that has a modern kick, so I'd buy it for any male between the ages of 15 and 40. I like the fact that it is so masculine and I think this smell would suit a 'man's man.'
I recently picked up a 125ml tester bottle of this on eBay for £18.50, however you can pay up to £40 for the same sized bottle on the highstreet so make sure you shop around.
I do think that this aftershave is worth the money, because it is long lasting and you don't need to put much on for the scent to be noticed. Depending on how much you apply, a 125ml bottle could last you over a year.
I don't think men really care what their aftershave bottle looks like, but this one is good because it isn't too fancy or over the top. The bottle has the Lacoste crocodile embedded into it and it is a fairly wide, sturdy bottle.
So ladies, if you are looking for an aftershave to buy your other half this Christmas, you won't go wrong with this.
I bought Lacoste Essential eau de toilette because I use organic deodorant, which doesn't really smell of anything except plants, so I wanted something that had a nice smell that I could wear at the same time.
I wouldn't normally comment on packaging, but I feel it needs a mention in this case. The box it comes in is a really nice shiny green color, simple but very stylish. The bottle is gorgeous, again simple but stylish with a brushed aluminium top and big crocodile logo embossed into the glass.
The smell when you first put it on isn't great, but once it's dried it's fantastic. It's unusual and quite addicitve. It's fresh, zesty, woody and invigorating. It's got a kind of crushed up leaves and flowers smell. If you use too much it can be a bit sickly, so be careful. The smell lasts all day, but does wear off slightly in the afternoon.
I think it's well priced and does last a long time. I will definitely buy another bottle when my current one runs out..
Lacoste: Essential is one of my favourite aftershave I have ever used, also my girlfriend loves me more when I use it lol.
Well what can I say about this aftershave, well it isn't the most expensive, with price range from £20-40 depending on size of bottle.
This aftershave has a unique smell to it that will always attract women, with compliments all the time. It can be worn for any occasion, whether for work, a night out or spending time with someone it is always a winner.
The smell stays on for quite a while which is good. I think a lot of people would agree with me that the smell is just too good, and would be a gift that most people would like.
As it is my personal favourite I would recommend every guy to get this or even test a sample at a fragrance shop, you will not be disappointed!!!
lacoste essential the ultimate aftershave for the modern male..with it`s strong but not overpowing smell, you shall b wooing the women in no time! as i have both this 1 and the red 1 in my fragrance collection this is a personal favourite and it`s head turning aroma is why i wear it out all the time.
Lacoste Essential aftershave is a simply wonderfull fragrance. The modern and fairly new aftershave is a great product from their range. It is a very sophisticated fragrance but has an element of freshness and sweetness to it that i simply love. The smell is very strong and recognizable amongst other aftershaves but still holds an element of disguise about it.
The sweet and refreshing smell of lacoste essential keeps me going throughout the day with lectures, and just smelling my shirt or jumper is all thats needed to put a smile on my face. I have compliments day after day, from everyone, as is the same with all lacoste aftershaves.
The freshness of the fragrance is beautifully aromatic and subtle, which is perfect for work, going-out and just sitting at home. Honestly, this fragrance is perfect for anywhere and everywhere. Simply LOVELY!
Lacoste essential will make your body feel fresh and rejuvinated from the moment you spray it on, whether youve been working out at the gym or had a hard day at work. Perfect for romantic evenings out with a girlfriend or a night on the town. It suits all types of men from any different background, and as some people associate lacoste with the youth culture of today, it's really the opposite.
The actual smell of the aftershave is very sweet and succulent with a fresh and light undertone. With a couple of sprays the aftershave will last all night and well into the next morning. I've woken up on quite a few mornings and wondered what that wonderful smell was, and then realized that it was the lacoste. However, if over used, the smell of the aftershave can become quite strong and powerful, like hugo boss for instance, and almost becomes a little bit too sickly.
Can be bought in just about any cosmetic shop like boots and also be purchased off the internet pretty easily. Also would make a great present for a dad, son or brother for their birthday or christmas time.
From £25-£50 per bottle of 75ml spray it is pretty pricey but well worth the expense. I would reccomend it too anyone. The bottle itself has a very nice design and comes in a beautifully presented green rectangle box.
Following on from my review of Lacoste Pour Homme I decided to review another of my favorite fragrances and again from Lacoste. Lacoste Essential was my first Lacoste Fragrance and one of the nicest fragrances I have owned. There are a few Lacoste Essential products available, they are Eau de toilette, Shower Gel, After shave and balm and finally a deodorant stick. There are three different sizes of the eau de toilette bottle, 40ml, 75ml and 125ml and you can expect to pay around £15-£40 depending on which bottle you choose.
I think that this fragrance comes in a very nice bottle, the bottle has a picture of a crocodile which is the sign of the Lacoste brand.
The shape is a bit different to most bottles but I like the look of it. It has it's own character. I'm sure you will have seen the advert for this fragrance with the unmistakable voice of Feist with her massive 1234 and the guy in the green polo shirt by the sea.
Once you have sprayed some Lacoste Essential for men begins as a lively, fresh and woody fragrance that is an invigorating and energetic blend of green notes, such as blackcurrant, grapefruit, lime and tomato leaves. There are also hints of a woody fragrance and it's a very invigorating fragrance.
This Lacoste fragrance is very relaxed and fresh and is just perfect for all occasions whether you are working, playing or on a night out It will keep it's fragrances for hours. I would recommend this fragrance for younger men but It also fits with older males although it is a younger fragrance.
You can buy this fragrance from all the major places like Boots and Perfume Shop aswell as the likes of Superdrug. You can also get some gteat deals online with ebay, strawberrynet and fragrance direct springing to mind. So If you are on the lookout for a nice fresh fragrance that is good for the anytime of the year especially summer then pick up one of these. You won't be dissapointed.
