For as long as I can remember, Lacoste Touch of Pink was my all time favourite perfume. So when Love of Pink was released, I immediately wanted to try it!
The perfume comes in a milky white bottle but appears pink due to the perfume. It comes in a pretty pink box which looks very girly, not tacky or cheap like a lot of perfume packages do. I paid £25 for the 30ml bottle, and much like it's companions Touch of Pink and Joy of Pink, it retails at approx this price for 30ml, then approx £40 for the 50ml, and anything from £45+ for the 90ml depending on where you shop. If you hunt around you could probably get it even cheaper.
The scent itself is very feminine and sweet:
The top notes are: Blood Orange, Lemon Peel
The heart notes are: Pink Magnolia, Quince Flower, Stephanotis
The base notes are: Cedarwood, Vanilla
When I first spray the perfume it does smell very strong even with one squirt, but it soon fades down to a more reasonable (but not too subtle) scent. It is very much a sweet scent (vanilla maybe?) but you can definitely smell the floral notes without it being too floral - like the kind of perfume your granny might wear haha.
The downfall is that it doesn't have much staying power. After a few hours I can barely smell it, if at all, which means I have to top up very often and as a result, the bottle really does not last very long in comparison to most perfumes. However, the scent is young, feminine and sweet and I am absolutely in love with it, so I will continue to buy it anyway! I would say it is more of a daytime scent as you wouldn't really want to carry it around with you and it doesn't last long enough to be a night scent. Having said that, I once had a small 'travel size' bottle of this and did carry it around, so if you can find it, it's worth it!
All in all, it's not as strong as Touch of Pink, but it is just as girly, pink and great smelling. If only it had more staying power...
By far my favourite from Lacoste's "pink" collection, Love of Pink offers a sweet and girly fragrance which can be worn for any occasion. This fun fragrance starts off at first spray smelling like bubblegum, but softens down into a fruity and refreshing scent which is great for the summer time. With top notes including blood orange and passionfruit, this is definitely one to spray on on those scorching summer days. The staying power of the fragrance isn't amazing, but it is light enough to spritz on throughout the day. The only downside for me is that I'm not a massive fan of the bottle as it doesn't do my dressing table justice but beggars can't be choosers!! Definitely go and smell this fragrance, along with the rest of the Lacoste range, because I think it is subtle enough to be generally well liked, yet it has the sweet kick for all those sugar loving girls out there!!
This is the first perfume my boyfriend gifted me with which I am not completely satisfied but it has not have many faults. Why don't I just start with the faults to get it over with, the scent wears off quite quickly so you will have to carry it with you to freshen up the scent. The cap on the bottle, although it looks awesome, seems to allow more evaporation of the perfume.
And now to the good part. This one is meant for young or young by heart consumers so if you find yourself in any of those two (we all can) this one may appeal to you. The notes in this perfume include blood orange, passion fruit, citron, pink magnolia, quince blossom, stephanotis, white cedar, musk and vanilla. It smells sweet with a pinch of citrus fruit scent to it, as it evolves it gets a light sweet vanilla smell (jet still a bit fruity). The scent is very subtle so this perfume can be worn at any time of the day. As far as the smell goes I am very satisfied with it since I am not a fan of sweet perfumes but this one got me hooked (as far as the scent is concerned).
It comes in a milky white transparent bottle but the perfume liquid is pink so this give the bottle a nice chic look (well at least when the perfume is full), the cap is transparent and is like a ring that you put on the pump (there is a hole through the cap), it looks nice but I am not sure it is really effective. I got the 50ml bottle but I think you can get it in a smaller amount and also in bigger.
I do like it for its scent but hate it due to its durability. I am happy to have it and as far as scent goes my boyfriend got it just right but won't be buying it for myself in the future.
Quite a while back I requested a sample of this perfume and immediately fell in love with the scent on the cardboard sample that arrived shortly afterwards. I'm not really big perfume user but I do like to have one available to wear when I go out and persuaded my Mum to get me a bottle for my birthday.
The top notes are: Blood Orange, Lemon Peel
The heart notes are: Pink Magnolia, Quince Flower, Stephanotis
The base notes are: Cedarwood, Vanilla
Whenever I first spray this perfume, I'm usually taken aback by how strong it smells at first, to the point where I now only spray it once (or twice at a push). When I spray it on my wrists I can detect a strong citrus (the lemon peel maybe?) smell combined with a sweet smell that I can't quite pinpoint but when it's sprayed onto my neck, it's the sweet smell that dominates.
The initial strong smell dies down quite quickly on me and I only get a whiff of something sweet every now and again after that, which I'm assuming is the vanilla. If I'm being completely blunt, it's not that dissimilar to a body spray for the first hour or so. I've been using an Impulse spray this week and notice quite strong whiffs of that on a seemingly random basis and this is very much the same in that after about half an hour, I can barely smell it and it's only being able to smell it here and there that reminds that I'm wearing it at all. I find that quite disappointing compared to a Body Shop scent that I often wear, which is much lighter than this and yet seems to have better staying power.
My Mum initially wanted to get me the eau de parfum but she was struggling to find it anywhere for a reasonable price and got me this eau de toilette version instead. I believe that she paid around £22 for it but having had a quick search around it seems that you can now get it from around £16 for the 30ml bottle depending on where you shop for it.
If you're not a fan of scents that smell overly sweet, this probably isn't going to be your thing as that's what comes across mostly strongly for me. Despite being much heavier than my Body Shop scent especially at first, I find it to be very much a daytime scent as once the strong smell dies down, it doesn't have all that much staying power on me and not enough to last for a whole evening.
I like doing competitions and have been quite lucky recently to have either won or been a runner up in lots of beauty comps. This bottle of Lacoste Love of Pink came in a small runners up hamper and although I've never been keen on the Lacoste brand I do like to use it as an everyday perfume.
The box is different, but please be aware that the bottle this perfume comes in is almost identical to their Touch of Pink offering. It's a very pretty bottle but it would be quite easy to grab the wrong one off the shelf and accidentally douse yourself in Touch of Pink, which is a nice fragrance but not half as sweet and feminine as this Love of.
In my opinion this is a beautiful perfume. It's designed for younger women and I don't think you'd go far wrong if you were to include a bottle in your teenage girls' Crimbo pressie sack, the overall design from the frosted glass bottle to the actual scent would appeal to teenagers and this would actually make a very nice first perfume for many girls.
The scent is gorgeous, it's like a cross between floral and fruity which brings the perfume bang up to date and also gives it a very pretty smell. I wouldn't say it lasts very long on my skin as once the initally strong fragrance dies down Love of Pink is actually very subtle. This is effective as a day perfume as it means I can't be smelled from across a crowded room, but those who are allowed into my personal space can definitely smell the sweetness of my perfume. And that's just how I like it!
Love of Pink has a deliciously sweet fragrance, throughout the life of the perfume I can smell vanilla and although this does peter out slightly towards the end you will still be able to detect it as a sugary smell which is extremely feminine and attractive. This perfume just doesn't take itself seriously, it has a playful fragrance which I think is fun and uber girly but is also classy enough to wear even for a special occasion. The floral tones come from pink magnolia and passion fruit and it's when these die down that the fruity fragrance comes through, along with the stronger vanilla and a more musky smell which adds a sexiness to the perfume. And yeah, yeah, yeah I know passion fruit is a fruit but in this blend it does bring out more of a floral fragrance to the perfume due to its tartness.
After you've been wearing Love of Pink for a while you may notice a slight citrus fragrance, at first I thought it was blood orange but looking at the fragrance notes I can now see that it's lemon peel. This comes through with the vanilla scent and together they create a gorgeous candied fragrance which is actually more sweeties than citrus, I adore this part of the perfume but unfortunately it doesn't last long.
This is an Eau de Toilette, which explains why it isn't as long lasting as other perfumes I have used. Depending on your skin type you can expect a good five hours wear from Love of Pink, this is from the first time you spray it on until the scent gets so faint that you have to shove your wrist under your nose just to get a whiff.
£36.50 from The Perfume Shop.
I had smelt the original Lacoste touch of pink perfume and thought it was quite a nice fragrance so when I saw that Lacoste were offering a free sample of the new Lacoste love of pink fragrance I applied and was delighted when I saw that mysample towlette had arrived in the post attached to a post card.
The perfume comes in a very similar packaging to the original Touch of Pink perfume. It comes in a long, sleek glass bottle which is tinted pink. The traditional Lacoste logo is on the top of the bottle with "Love of pink" written vertically up the middle of the bottle.
After browsing online I have found a description of what the perfume is intended to smell like: "Love of Pink is the complete expression of femininity and romantic vitality. With a delightful sent which builds on the emotion and character of Touch of Pink, Love of Pink is a girl s perfect companion towards experiencing the feeling of love. Combining a touch of blood orange and the fresh sparkle of Lemon Peel, followed by a sensuous, feminine touch of Pink Magnolia, Quince Flower and Stephanotis, the feminine energy it exudes is prolonged by a refined dry-down of Cedarwood. It is finally completed by a dreamy, lingering kiss of vanilla, making it a captivating elixir of love"
So do I agree with this?
When I first wiped the towlette onto my wrists I have to say I was not impressed, it was quite strong and overpowering, it was definatly not a subtle fragrance. I actually found it to smell quite cheap.
However I have now been wearing the perfume for about 20 minutes and it has certainly changed. It is now a blend of floral elements and vanilla. The vanilla accompanies the floral elements very well and to me is the most obvious scent.
I have to say I could not really smell any of the citrus elements to this perfume to begin with, this could be just the way the perfume developed on my skin as every body is different. Afer a couple of hours I noticed the perfume had become quite tangy but shortly afterwards the perfume seemed to fade away and was not really noticeable.
I completely agree that this is a girly, flirty and romantic fragrance and after around half an hour it changed from the initial overpowering scent and became quite light.
So who is this pefume suited for? Well, in my opinion this is more of a perfume that is suited for younger women due to its sweet and tangy scent.
As I sit here smelling my wrists I am thinking when would be the best time to wear this perfume, and I would say that this is more of a daytime fragrance. The notes of vanilla make it quite subtle but enough to make people recognise that you have a wonderful scent.
Personally I do not think that I would buy this perfume for myself. Don't get me wrong it is a lovely scent but it is not really the style of perfume that I would generally go for.
This is an absolute bargain of a perfume, a 30ml bottle can be purchased from Debenhams for £22.50. Considering the prices of other designer perfumes that are on the market I think this is not a bad price at all.
If you like your perfumes to be flirty and girly then this is a nice perfume. I tend to like these sorts of perfumes but for some reason possible the tangy citrus elements this just didn't tick the right boxes for me. I think the free sample offer is still on so if you want to try it for yourself just apply. I would rate this 7 out of 10.
==Also On Ciao==
Given my love of Lacoste's touch of pink, I thought I would give this a try.
Looks: the frangrance comes in an eye-catching baby-pink and bright pink box. The bottle itself is long and thin and made of frosted glass, and is light pink all the way to the top, which is silver, and the lid is a clear plastic. Overall this gives quite a nice impression, although again I have to say it is not the prettiest bottle I have ever seen. It does however look very feminine.
Scent: it's a great everyday kind of scent, but be warned, it is VERY citrusy! It's very feminine, but seems to me to be more suited to active girls. For anyone who's interested: top notes are blood orange, passion fruit and lemon peel; heart notes are pink magnolia, quince flower and stephanotis; and base notes are white cedarwood, musk and vanilla.
Price: similar to the rest of Lacoste's perfumes: £37 for the biggest 90ml bottle, which seems pretty reasonable, and around £12 for the very handbag/travel-friendly 15ml bottle. It also comes in 30ml and 50ml bottles, priced within this range.
Overall: a little disappointed given that I'm a fan of the original Touch of Pink. It just seems a little too citrusy, and a little too girly for me personally.
When I first got this perfume I wasn't sure wheter I was going to like it. However when I tried it I loved it and it has became one of my favourite perfumes to wear.
****Price And Packaging****
The perfume comes in a gorgeaus frosted glass bottle in a cylinder shape with the top and bottom curved outwards. The perfume is of a pink colour which is really sweet. It has a beautiful silver spray top.
30ml will cost on average £20
50ml will cost on average £25
90ml will cost on average £45
When I first smelled this perfume it was very floral and feminie to me but when I put it on the scent it was light fresh and sweet. However it then went from being over poweringly sweet to a orange zest. It also went really tangy. The fresh zest is softened by a suttle underlying floral scent which is very light
In my opinion the first scent you smell doesn't last very long and changes quickly. I prefered the first smell but it did turn out nice in the end too.
This particular smell is achieved by using ingredients such as:
Show the more zesty side of things
Show the more suttle romantic feminie aspect of the perfume
I really love this perfume and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a zesty yet feminine perfume. I think it would be great for all ages from teens to adults. It is a soft daytime fragrance so it is totallly wearable.
A great perfume and I would suggest you buy it
I have to say that I was slightly disappointed with this Lacoste Love of Pink Eau de Toilette and having spent the best part of £35 on a 50ml bottle from Fragrance Direct it is not a purchase that I will be repeating.
The main fault I have with the product is that the smell is not very long lasting and as such you will find yourself having to top it off a couple of times in a long day which in my opinion does not make it good value for money.
It is a simple design with regards to the packaging the box is a mix of different shades of pink with a light background and then a darker central pattern, the bottle itself tapers into the middle and then widens again and is pink in colour with a fairly typical spray top.
It has a fruity fragrance to it with hints of lemon, orange and tropical passion fruit, whether or not these are what I can actually detect I'm not sure, it is certainly a fruity smell and quite fresh smelling as well. However this fruity smell does not last long enough in my opinion and you are left with a rather weak floral smell that is not very strong at all.
I would certainly class this as a daytime scent however it is not one that I would recommend as there are a lot better scents on the market.
Compared to it's predecessor, 'Touch of Pink'. 'Love of Pink' is by far the winner. New, improved and an all round fresher, cleaner smell, this fragrance takes the floral sweetness of her sister and adds fruity, zestiness which blasts you with a tang! There's more depth and more feeling to this one; if 'Touch of Pink' was a young twenty-something, 'Love of Pink' is a confident, wise woman in her thirties yet still retains a playful, flirtiness.
The bottle shares design with 'Touch of Pink' but the bottle is frosted and all grown up. I am far happier to give £35.00 for my 50ml of fragrance. The smell is long lasting and bearable, I dont get bored of it and enjoy when I get unexpected whiffs of it throughout the day. This is one that I would only wear in the day though, its far too fresh and friendly to wear of an evening!
I just love this perfume which I picked up in the duty free shop on the way to Orlando. I spayed and sprayed and sprayed it while on holiday so the bottle went down very quickly. I found it to be quite similar to the original Touch of Pink which I also loved.
It has a very fresh and fruity scent with floral undertones which I simply adored. A real spring/summer fragrance. Definatley very feminine and quite passionate. It didn't smell too strongly of vanilla which I often find makes a fragrance too young for a lot of women to wear, however there is a definate hint in there somewhere
The bottle is definatley girly. Very very pink in a gorgeous frosted glass bottle with clear lid. Looks nice and clean - very modern looking.
Overall I would say this is a lighthearted and fun fragrance suited to most age groups.
Lacoste Perfume ::
I was watching advertisements on the television and i came across the Lacoste firsty advert that advertises Lacoste touch of pink. It looks very nice and the packaging is very chic and sleek, this would be a good product for girls who love pink & love perfume. The perfume is sold for about 29.99 and a small squirt you are left in a cloud of sweet smells. Its extremely easy to use and it looks to have alot to hold inside the bottle. It is about 15ml that holds and can be found cheaply on amazon. It was announced on Feburary 2009 and the churpy fruity smell leaves you sensious and sexy.
One of the downsides is that there is not alot in the bottle and it runs out quite easily but i guess its because i used it alot because i loved the smell. In my opinion its not worth the money, but if you want to try out this fragrance, its a thumbs up from me.
Lacoste: Love of Pink, Eau de Toilette!! A needed fragrance for all ladies.
This was a gift and i was so so happy with the product. It is stylish, smells lovely and of course it's pink! The smell is light and sweet its not to heavy or stings your nose!
This is very handy as it can fit into your handbag with discreation unlike some chunky bottles currently on the market! lacoste should have gave this fragrance a motto: A small spray goes a long wasy! It lasts all day, you may have to have an extra spray for night time although you can still smell it!
This is a fantastic buy and the bottle lasts for ages so you are saving some pennies along the way. This fragrance come in many different size botles so there is something suitable for everyone and their price ranges. Prices tend to range from £20 upwards.
Overall great product, you certainly get your moneys worth. Please try it its lovely.
Lacoste - Love Of Pink, Eau De Toilette.
This perfume was a valentines day present from my other half this February. At first when I saw it I was already smiling at seeing the bright pink box as pink is my favourite colour.
I was very happy it was a Lacoste as I am a big Lascoste fan. I was very impressed at the smell of this perfume. Its a perfume I can wear day to day as it is not too strong. A few sparys on my wrist and neck will last me all day so no need to reapply. The bottle is a good size so it fits well into my handbag and I can take it places with me is needed, which is good is I have been to the gym or swimming where I have had a shower and need to re-apply.
I am going to continue using this perfume and when it runs out I will buy myself another bottle, from looking online it looks like a bottle this size will set you back around £20ish, not too bad for a designer perfume.
My son has just returned from a trip to Marbella and on his return he presented me with a bottle of Lacoste: Love of Pink, Lacoste perfumes would never be my first choice but not because I do not like them just because I am a bit set in my ways.
This particular lacoste perfume is very nice, the scent is one of a sweet but floral nature, it lasts long and is not too overpowering when first applied as a lot of long lasting scents tend to be.
The bottle it comes in is very attractive as is the box that surrounds the bottle so it is a nice thing to give as a gift as it immediately looks nice and also appears expensive although some research soon told me it actually is not.
You can pick up a bottle of this here in the UK for around £22 that is for a 50ml bottle although 30ml and 100ml bottles are also available.
Since starting to use this only a few days ago I have had comments from a few friends on how nice it is and also my daughter thought it was a really nice scent so although I am a much older lady than this is probably aimed at, it is clear that it works for people of different ages, my daughter is only 24 and I am a LOT older!
This is a lovely fresh scented perfume that I would definitely recommend to anyone (well female anyone's)!!
Lacoste has launched Love of Pink, a follow-up fragrance to 2004's Touch of Pink and 2008's Dream of Pink. Like the earlier scents in the series, it is intended for 'young consumers'. The notes include blood orange, passion fruit, citron, pink magnolia, quince blossom, stephanotis, white cedar, musk and vanilla.
