Well this is a perfume I have been a fan of since my teens. I got it as a xmas gift of my parents, when I was about 14, and hadn't bought it since, having forgot about it. I then seen it on special offer in Bodycare the other day, and couldn't resist having it again. I definitely think this is going to revert to being my signature scent once more though.
Anyways enough babbling, on with my review.
Pour Femme was one of Lacoste's first signature scents for women. It is designed for Lacoste by French perfume expert Olivier Cresp.
The packaging is rather plain and simple to be honest, definetly not one of those fancy ones that will catch your eye, from a shelf of pretty packaged bottles, but the scent inside will definitely make up for this.
The box is plain beige coloured cardboard, with silver trimming, text and logo. The box is also textured to match the feeling of the Lacoste 1212 pique polo shirt.
The bottle is also quite bland in appearance. It is made from transparent glass, and is a rectangular shaped bottle. The silver crocodile logo, is emblazened on to the front in silver, along with the perfume branding, and text.
The rounded bottle top, is made from steel brushed aluminuim, and is delicately engraved with a fancy textured steel pique pattern, that like the box, is intended to represent the signature Lacoste Pique Polo Shirts.
The fragrance inside the bottle gives of a light almost golden glow, to the glass.
The fragrance itself is delightful, and although it is more an evening perfume due to it's sophisticated and enticing arom, I have on occasion worn it during daytime too.
The fragrance is an exotic blend of:
Top Notes: Jamacian Pepper Accord, Purple Freeshia Accord
Heart Notes: White Heliotrope Flower Accord, Iranian Jasmine Flower Accord, Hibiscus Flower Accord, Bulgarian Rose Absolute, Ambrette Seed Absolute.
Base Notes: Himalayan Cedarwood Accord, Velvert-Skin Accord, Sandalwood, Mysore, Incense.
The woody musky fragrance character is key to the scent, the delicately peppery, floral notes, quickly subside to reveal a deep, velvet-skin like muskiness facetted by the gentle, persistent woody notes of Sandalwood.
In honesty I can't notice all the ingredients included, but the woody and floral tones, are notable, and create an ambient blend, and delightful scent.
Staying power in this perfume, is the main draw, this easily lasts a good 8-10 hours, with various notes becoming more apparent as time goes on. This is one of those perfumes, that doesn't smell down-stated, but also doesn't smell over-powering in anyway.
This perfume is an EDT instead of an EDP, but that doesn't appear to make a diffrence with this specific perfume, because of the staying power I have already fore-mentioned.
The perfume only appears to be available in a 60ml, (pity there isn't a 100ml bottle available), which is a bit of a downside, my only downside really. As I said at the begining of the review, I bought this the other day once more, because it was on offer, at a bargain price of £12.99 ( so basically, you're getting a stunning perfume, for a fraction of the cost you would usually pay).
There is also an accompanying 50ml roll-on deodorant, a 150ml body cream, and a 200ml shower gel, although I personally cannot comment on any of these, as I haven't tried them myself.
I hope this review will be useful to you, as by selecting this fragrance, you will not be disappointed...
I was given this perfume as a present . When I first opened it and seen the name Lacoste I was a bit hesitant as I associate this name with the younger generation, althought may I add, I am not over the hill yet, however I need,nt have worried. It is gorgeous. To me it has a fresh, flowery, sweet smell but certainly not sickly sweet. Bearing in mind that I usually favour Chanel No 5 and Obsession I was surprised myself that I liked this so much. It is a perfume that could be worn day or night and a few quick squirts can last all day. My bottle was 90ml and it does last quite a while. You can buy a 50ml bottle for about £30.00. Although I think perfume is very much down to personal taste I do not think that many people could fail to dislike this scent. I have had lots of good comments from both men and women whilst wearing it. The bottle and packaging are quite plain however stylish and would make a great present.
I'm particularly fussy about the perfumes I wear or buy and I only have one or two on my dresser but Lacoste pour femme is one of them.
I fell in love with this fragrance by complete accident when a friend brought me some back from holiday (duty free) as a gift and I've kept a bottle of it with me ever since.
The bottle came in a lovely light yellow and silver box with minimal design on. The bottle is heavy glass with a square base and a beautifully textured silver steel cap (which was inspired by their famous 1212 polo shirt). It was designed by German designer Lutz Herman who has also designed the packaging for Dolce and Gabbana 'the one', Kate Moss 'velvet hour' and Kylie 'sexy' to name but a few.
The scent combines top notes of Jamaican pepper and freesia, heart notes of Iranian jasmine and Bulgarian rose and base notes of Himalayan cedarwood and sandalwood.
The scent to me has a liquorice hint to it along with the peppery floral notes and slight vanilla muskiness which is clean and sophisticated. Being an eau de parfum, it lasts with you all day and it great value for money as you only need a one spray on a morning to last you right through.
There are two sizes of eau de parfum available, 50ml at approx £20.00 and 90ml at approx £30.00 (prices from Superdrug.com) as well as a body crème, shower gel and a roll on deo (prices unknown).
I think this perfume is really unique, it sits beautifully on my skin and is chic and sophisticated without being heavy, making this an ideal all round fragrance for day and night.
I totally agree with the statement from Lacoste that this is 'style on skin'
I have tried Lacoste touch of pink before and found it too over powering so I thought I would try this one. I find this perfume very refreshing and think it is a great summer perfume. It is a very subtle perfume that lasts all day long. The smell is musky and seductive and has a very warm finish. The bottle is nice and sophisticated and I think that the perfume is well worth the money. I feel that out of the perfumes I have previously had this has lasted me the longest and is one of the best out there. I would recommend this perfume to everyone I know and it would make the perfect gift for a loved one for birthday or Christmas. I would defiantly go out and buy this perfume again unlike many of my others I have. I hoped you find this review helpful in some way!
Those of you that know me well know that I have a penchant for expensive perfume! It is one of my many vices. To me, fragrance is a very individual thing, and you may want a few different perfumes to suit different moods and occasions. Unfortunately this can mean having to spend quite a bit of your hard earned cash. It is always a pleasant surprise to find a favourite scent on special offer or to discover a good quality product which is priced to please the bank manager! Lacoste for women is a very reasonable price for a top quality perfume. I discovered it at Christmas when looking for something for a change. I thought that my significant other might be getting bored with the all too familiar whiff of my usual favourite and thought something else might be nice. Did he notice? Did he heck! but that's men for you! Mind you, I am a great believer that you should sometimes do things just for yourself and my perfume buying habit is, it must be said, mostly for my own gratification. I am sure most women would agree with that. Lacoste for women is the first female fragrance produced by Lacoste.They have been in the male fragrance market for some time and finally decided to give the ladies a look-in! It is rather a good first attempt. It costs £14 for 50mls of Eau de Toilette. I managed to get mine on special offer with a roll on deodorant thrown in. At the time of purchase I had my reservations about the staying power of a perfume which was so reasonably priced. My worries were unfounded as it easily lasts all day and doesn't "turn" as some less expensive fragrances do on me! You are probably wondering what it smells like? It is quite an unusual smell, very clean and rather seductive. It is a fresh, natural smell rather than a flowery or heavily musky one. It is a real mixture; there are fruity and spicy tones made up of orange juice, pear, pineapple, pink peppercorns and green apple. You could b
e forgiven for thinking that you might pong a tad of fruit salad! Not so! These fruity aromas are tempered by a slightly green and floral note. This comes from white roses,white tulips, green moss, sandalwood and linden blossom. Surely now you smell of fruit salad next to a vase of flowers?! No! To make the smell more sexy it has an infusion of iced tea, carrot extract and just a hint of white musk. ( I am not awfully sure why carrots and tea should be considered sexy, but there you are!) It is a large ingredient list and I would not be at all surprised if you were to think it must be a very heavy smell. Strangely, it isn't. Lacoste has the balance just right. It is a sensual fragrance and is quite light without giving an air of prissiness or fragility. This is an ideal perfume for a woman who likes to exude strength and yet retain some femininity and sensuality. It would be ideal for a lady with some authority, perhaps! Over all it is a clean and slightly spicy smell, and could possibly just get away with being unisex for perhaps your less macho man! The packaging is simple and understated. It comes in a slightly opaque bottle with Lacoste written down the side and a chrome top with integral atomiser. It looks very smart and of high quality- something to be proud of on your dressing table. It is different from my usual perfumes but I really like it. You can also get shower gel or mousse to match, spray or roll-on deodorant, which I found very effective, and a very nice body lotion. I took a selection of perfumes to the Bristol meet last weekend for my chums to sample and KarenUK was especially taken with this one. So you get two recommendations for the price of one! I bought mine from the Perfume Shop, but having looked around have found very little variation in price. This is possibly one of the best value perfumes I have ever bought. It is definitely worth trying! I have had a few posit
ive comments on it, even if somebody else didn't notice it wasa diferent from usual!
With top notes of Jamaican pepper and purple freesia; middle notes of white heliotrope, Iranian jasmine, hibiscus, Bvlgarian rose absolute and ambrette seed absolute and base notes of Himalayan cedarwood, sandalwood and incense /
