Lacoste Love of Pink Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Sweet and feminine fragrance, would suit lots of different age groups
Disadvantages: Not the longest lasting perfume I've ever used
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.
