Lacoste Femme Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Delightful Fragrance, Bargain Price...
Disadvantages: Not available in a bigger bottle.
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...
