      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent scent for the gentleman out there.

      PRICE AND SIZE

      This is a premium brand fragrance (Eau de Toilette); therefore expect to pay around £25-£33 per a bottle of 100ml in size. I would recommend purchasing a large a bottle as possible as the price per 100ml goes up the smaller size that you buy (e.g. 50ml is around £20).

      The bottle itself is a transparent rectangular shape, with a silver lid which is slightly studded, giving a simple yet elegant look to the product.

      WHERE TO BUY IT

      Item was purchased from a local fragrance store (not a large retailer), and it widely available in most of these type of stores, as well as duty free shops in airports which can offer large reductions in the price depending on availability. Be wary when purchasing from online sellers, as this market is targeted particularly by fraudsters selling fake goods at a premium price, so make sure you check out the website before committing to a purchase.

      THE FRAGRANCE

      The fragrance itself is quite strong, but not too over-powering (use in small doses), with an almost-fruit hint to it which is given by the top notes or ruby grapefruit and plum. While some men may find it odd to have the fruity element, this still gives the fragrance a genuine masculine feel. I also find that the fragrance tends to align itself more with evenings out/formal occasions rather than general everyday use, given the subtle use of the fruity notes and its sophisticated scent.

      Top notes: ruby grapefruit, plum accord, Italian bergamot and apple
      Middle notes: juniper, cardamom, cinnamon bark & berry pink peppercorn
      Base notes: Jamaican rum, agarwood, sandalwood & vanilla bean

      MY VERDICT

      As mentioned above, I tend to use this fragrance for more formal or evening occasions, rather than general day to day wear as I think it is more sophisticated than some other fragrances I own. That said I do feel this fragrance is an excellent product at good value in the current market, and an excellent addition to your fragrance range. Four out of five.

        Lacoste Pour Homme - Eau de Toilette for men

        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------
        General information
        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------

        Brand: Lacoste
        Gender: Men
        Contents: 100 ml

        -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------
        The brand
        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------

        Lacoste is one brand which comes originally from France and was founded in 1933 by Rene Lacoste and André Gillier. It's a brand which focuses on selling among other (expensive) clothes, shoes, perfumes and watches and all have the logo of a crocodile. For me, the brand is best known for its polo shirts, it's sporty look but also it's expensive nature of its products. I don't really buy products from this brand but couldn't resist this smell.

        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------
        The bottle
        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------

        Just a little bit about the look, because I don't think it's the most important about this product. The bottle looks good and attractive. It is a glass bottle with a flat bottom and it just looks very masculine. The fragrance is available in the sizes of 50ml and 100ml. The spraying button is very easy to use and I feel that it gives the right amount, but that's just very personal. Just a very functional and easy to use bottle.

        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------
        The smell
        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------

        I really enjoyed the scent of the Lacoste Pour Homme. It's a nice and fresh scent and when you apply it, it doesn't come off to strong. What I like about the scent is that it doesn't loses the smell after a few hours and it stays with you during the day. The smell gas a hint of apple and grapefruit but also Jamaican run, vanilla bean and cinnamon. A really nice and light scent.

        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------
        My opinion
        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------

        I don't normally buy the Lacoste brand, but I loved the Lacoste Red and since then I love to buy the Lacoste fragrances. When I tried out this fragrance I instantly loved it. I liked the combination of freshness and sweetness. Due to it's freshness you can really use it in almost every situation. This allows you to wear it at work, but also during the night. It's not a strong smell, but it smells very nice and soft. Definitely recommended!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        good value, great smell

        Lacoste usually produce fragrances that have a distinctive smell and ones that are definitely unique and not like many others - they have succeeded again and this fragrance is very much a unique smell. It was first released in 2002 and since then I have bought it three times. This is unusual for me, as I like to try new after shaves as often as possible, but I keep getting drawn back to this.

        The good thing about it being a bit older is that you can usually pick it up for a good reasonable price. In fact I was walking through my local shopping centre about two weeks ago and saw that House of Fragrance had the small 30 ml bottle on sale for £11.25, which I jumped at. I was glad I did, I have not had this after shave for a while, but was as pleased when I first bought it.

        As I mentioned the smell is very distinctive. iI would describe it as 'medium', by which I mean it is not really light, as the smell definitely has lastability, but it is not so strong that it is overwhelming. In saying that, you do not need a lot on for it to last most of the day. I would classify this as a day time fragrance.

        The bottle is quite sleek, kind of smokey glass with a silver top. Even though it is smokey glass you can clearly see when the bottle is nearing the end! I have always bought the eau de toilette as I prefer a spray.

        I have also owned Lacoste Essential, the green one, which is a lot lighter in tone than this. I prefer this one. Apparently it is made with juniper berrys, but it does not smell like gin!

        Have to say I would definitely recommend this! A great smell and great value for money too.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great fragrance

          Of all the fragrances I own, Lacoste for men is my favourite. It is simply a lovely smell. If I am to describe it, it is almost like the smell of cream soda mixed with a little liquorish and some marshmallows, but in a gentle form.

          The good thing about it is that it can be used wherever you are..of course you can do that with any fragrance. But I usually have fragrances I only use when I'm going to a party, or say another one for college...Yes I'm aware I sound like a loser. But the Lacoste smell works well pretty much anywhere you are, it's not overpowering and is a nice light smell to use at whatever social event you are at.

          The bottle is also nice, and it is practical being in a spray form unlike many other fragrances which you have to carefully pour onto your hands.

            Great fragrance

            I have reviewed several of my favourite fragrances here on dooyoo and here is my latest review of one, It's Lacoste Pour Homme. I have had one other fragrance from Lacoste, Which was Lacoste Essential. I loved that and I am very fond of Lacoste Red as you might have read in my review of it which I posted quite recently. As you will probably know Pour Homme means ''For Him'' in French.

            Lacoste Pour Homme is available in two different sizes of bottle 50ml and 100ml and they range from about £28-£40 depending on where you look. The fragrance comes in a nice see through glass bottle which allows you to see when it is running out. The spraying button is very easy to use and gives just the right amount of the spray each time you press the button.

            Anyway onto the smell now and you won't be dissapointed by the smell of Lacoste Pour Homme. It has a great balanced smell which is a long lasting fragrance that doesnt lose any of it's spark for hours after you apply it. The smell has hints of ruby grapefruit, plum accord, Italian bergamot & apple with middle notes juniper, cardamom, cinnamon bark & berry pink peppercorn amd the base notes of Jamaican rum, agarwood, sandalwood & vanilla bean

            Other products in this range from Lacoste include after shave balm and deodorant. You can also buy gift sets which come with various combinations of the products in this range. You can pick up some great deals on this range if you look around in some of the onliine stores.

            Summing up, this is not their best fragrance but it certainly is a very nice fragrance indeed and it is great for everyday use aswell as on night outs. If you havent tried this fragrance then try it and see what you think.
