      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      One of my first fragrances and pleased with my purchase.

      I came over Lacoste Red when i was at the perfume shop down the town. I wanted to purchase my first fragrance and i was attracted to Lacoste when i smelt the tester at the shop. I've been wearing Lacoste Red for nearly a year now and thought i would review the fragrance.

      Introduction :

      Lacoste Red is a woody Floral musk fragrance for men and the was launched in 2004.


      The Packaging

      Lacoste Red comes in an ordinary cardboard box which is red in colour with the Lacoste logo and word written in white on the front.

      The bottle

      I love the bottle of Lacoste Red and i find it very unique to other fragrance bottles. The bottle is made out of glass and is almost oval shaped and smooth in texture, the edges are rigid on both sides which are designed to make holding the bottle easier. The Lacoste logo and and word is written in white on the bottle. The bottom of the bottle is red and clear at the top. The cap at the top of the bottle is silver.

      Price

      Lacoste Red can be bought in three different sizes:
      50 ml, rrp. £26
      75 ml rrp. £36
      125 ml rrp. £46

      It is generally cheaper to buy the aftershave on the internet and at the moment as i write this review the cheapest price i have seen for this fragrance is £20 for Lacoste Red 75ml from the Purfume Shop.. http://www.theperfumeshop.com/

      However the price always changes and it is worth shopping around. I bought the 75ml size in a gift set at Christmas from Boots for £20 which included 2 free shower gels which was very good value.

      The Fragrance

      Top notes are green apple and thuja; middle notes are pine tree, jasmine and cedar; base notes are patchouli, vetiver and white musk. The scent to me is fresh and is not overpowering.

      This fragrance i think is aimed at the younger market hence why i bought it and i love the scent of the fragrance. The longevity of the fragrance i have had no trouble with, the scent is strong but not overpowering in which i know some fragrances are. I usually spray my neck around three times and it the scents lasts throughout the day. I have received compliments from my friends when wearing the fragrance and i feel more confident when i wear it.

      I am happy with my purchase and i would buy another bottle of Lacoste Red when it runs out. The only downside i find to any aftershave is the price but Lacoste Red is not an overly expensive fragrance compared to may other designer fragrances. I would recommend this fragrance in terms of the scent and value.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      excellent value for money

      Well this is my patners signature scent. I introduced him to it, as a christmas gift a few years ago, after smelling a very enticing tester of it, in my local The Perfume Shop.

      I purchased the 75ml bottle on special offer for £18.99, the first time and have at christmas time each year since usually been able to get the same sized bottle for around the £20 mark, having paid £25 as my dearest purchasing of said scent. It is also available in a 50ml, and a 125ml, and is available in a gift seft compromising of the 75ml bottle and an aftershave balm stick.

      The packaging, is an average rectangular cardboard box, which is read and silver tye dye, almost, in colouring, and has the lacost crocodile logo to the front, in white, the inner of the box, is stiffened red cardboard, to hold the bottle in place.

      The bottle itself, is quite striking. It is almost oval in shape, with ridged indents on either side, and has dark red glass to the bottom, getting lighter, until leading to clear glass at the neck of the bottle. he top is silver metal, with a red ring around it, which pull off easily, to reveal the atomizer spray below.

      The scent, is very enticing, and I love the smell of my partner when he wears it. It has an extremly freh, and sexy, captivating aroma too it, and is definetly one the lady in your life will like, as it is very sensual.
      Although this fragrance comes in EDT instead of EDP, it is still very long lasting, with only a couple of squirts, I can still smell it on my partner long after returning home from a night out. It is pleasent from first scoosh, and not over-powering by any means, and unusally the scent remains the same and does not seem to fade over time.

      The scent comprises of :
      Heart notes:
      Jasmine and cedar
      Top notes:
      Apple and maclura fruit
      Base :
      Cinnamon, sensual woods and patchouli

      Lacoste market this aftershave as 'Modern, Spontaneous, and Youthful' and they definitely hit the nail right on the head with this description.

      This one deinitely gets the thumbs up from both my partner and I, so is definitely a winner in my book, with its great fragrance, and intriguing price tag...

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      long lasting

      Lacoste red mens eau de toilette is a very good aroma for me. I find it goes on my skin and suits it. As soon as I spray this on it gives off a masculine aroma that I like.

      The bottle that my lacoste red for men comes in has a short curved chunky look and I think it suits the style of the fragrance. The bottle is in a smooth glass which has patterned strikes on it and makes the bottle easy for me to hold.

      I spray this on to each side of my neck and it goes on well with plenty of spray and power. I don't need to spray it more than once each side as that is enough for me.


      The box that I got my lacoste red in was one with red bits on to match in with the red of the bottom of the bottle. I think it works well and looks very striking. I don't have the box anymore but is was well made.

      I bought my lacoste for £29.99 and I know this is not cheap but I got plenty for the money. As the bottle had 125mls of the fragrance in it does not all go too quickly even if I use it lots. This can cost more up to £40 plus so I got a good price.

      When I wear this I can detect cedarwood and patchoulli which give this depth and the cedar gives my fragrance a good spiced smell too. There is also apple in this as I clearly smell that when I first spray this on.


      I always get very good comments when I wear this and I know it suits me. It goes on strong but over the day it gets lighter but I can still detect it and so can other people. It has very good staying power.

      This is a confident smell for men to wear that is modern and young and I like it a lot. I would recommend this as everyone seems to like it when I have it on and it smells great.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A must have aftershave for me

      A friend of mine was wearing an aftershave that I liked, so after asking what the fragrance was, I promptly went out and bought my own bottle of Lacoste Red. That was quite a while ago and I am now on my third bottle of it.

      Packaging
      The box that this aftershave comes in is bright red with the Lacoste logo and the word Lacoste written in white across the front. The top and bottom of the box are black. The actual bottle is glass which is red at the bottom, and clear at the top. This makes the aftershave inside look like it is coloured at the bottom. The bottle is an oval type shape with a flat bottom. The Lacoste logo (a crocodile) and the word Lacoste are both printed on the front of the bottle in white. Both sides of the bottle have ridged edges. The lid is silver with a red stripe running round it.

      Cost
      I paid £24.99 for the bottle I have at the moment which is a 75ml bottle and I bought it from a local Supersaver Store. I have looked online and you can buy this aftershave from and the prices are; £24.99 for 50ml and £28.99 for 75ml. I have found this item cheaper online if you buy it as a tester bottle where it comes without the box.

      The Aftershave
      This is one of my favourite aftershaves. I would say that this aftershave is quite light and fresh but somehow quite musky at the same time. According to the website, Lacoste Red has top notes of fresh green apples and subtle floral scents. It has middle notes of jasmine, along with a blend of cedar wood. And finally, it contains base notes of precious woods and white musk. So I guess the main scents that some through are the sweetness of the green apples and the musk from the white musk. The aftershave has quite a decent staying power. I usually apply a few squirts of aftershave in the morning and I can still definitely smell it on myself still at lunchtime.

      Conclusion
      As I already mentioned, this aftershave is one of my favourites. I like that fact that is still smells masculine without being too overpowering. I find some of the men's aftershaves smell far too overpowering but this one isn't like that at all. Compared to some of the other named brand aftershaves available, I think that this aftershave offers quite good value for money. I think this aftershave is suitable for everyday wear as it isn't too obvious and just kind of lingers in the background. Certainly a product I would recommend.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A young medern scent but extremely sweet smelling

        Lacoste red is an Eau De Toilette from Lacoste the clothing brand and is targeted at a younger market than their classic Por Homme.
        The bottle is very stylish looking with a heavy glass bottle that is red on the bottom and the sides taper in and become "knobbly" it has a spray application with a silver lid and has the famous crocodile and the name lacoste on the front. All in all a very nice looking bottle that should appeal to its target audience.

        I was surprised to find out how popular this fragrance seems to be and I seem to be in the minority here on dooyoo with not thinking it is one of the best men's fragrances available with everyone else giving it 5 stars.
        For me the first thing I notice when I spray this is just how sweet the scent is. It is overpowering and sickly sweet but luckily it does calm down and become a little more subtle but still remains strong. This is good news for those that like the smell but not so much for me who wasn't overly keen on it. It has heart notes of Jasmine and Cedar, top notes of Apple and maclura fruit and its base notes Cinnamon, sensual woods and patchouli.
        I will say the scent does smell fresh and clean but for me the sweetness just over powers everything else but for its target market of young men I can see why this is popular, I can imagine a someone going to the gym and using this after a workout.

        The Eau De Toilette is available in 3 different sizes, 50ml, 75ml and 125ml but like all aftershaves its hard to give an accurate price for the bottles as it can be found much cheaper if you shop around the cheap internet sites and shops such as semichem you will be able to get a good deal. On the high street expect to pay between £20 for the small bottle and £45 for the largest one.
        You can also buy matching shower gel, aftershave balm and deodorant and they are usually available as part of a set which makes them a good deal. Although Lacoste red is not one of my favourites I can see why it is so popular and I think the sets would make a great gift for someone.

          Lacoste Red - Eau de Toilette for men

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

          Brand: Lacoste
          Gender: Men
          Contents: 125 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 its sides ribbed, providing a better grip. The color is red and becomes darker the farther you go down. On the back you'll find information about the product and at the front you will find the name of the brand. Quite a nice bottle to see, so you don't need to hide from others.

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

          I think the smell of Lacoste Red is delicious. It's a nice and fresh scent and when you apply it, it doesn't come off to strong. I find that hard to determine, but it smells a little bit as a apple, nice and sweet. I don't feel that people can smell it from afar, but only up close, what is a good sign. Also you don't need to spray a lot to get it noticed.

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

          I don't normally buy the lacoste brand, because frankly I find them to expensive to buy, but I really enjoyed this smell. So I also bought this smell because 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!

            Try it out might find something you like

            Lacoste red for men is a popular fragrance for many men across the country, but is it the right after shave for you?

            I received this fragrance as a free gift with a magazine subscription and it instantly became a winner with me. The most important thing about an aftershave is the smell which it gives. The smell from this Lacoste aftershave is very sweet with touches of fruit about it. The good thing about this aftershave is that it is not too sweet and fruity and it doesn't overpower you. This also means that it goes quite far where one or two sprays will last you the entire day keeping you smell fragrant.

            Due to it being a sweet and fruity smell it means it is more suitable to the younger man who isnt afraid of his feminine side. It is suitable for any situation, going to work school or university or going out for dinner or to the pub. However this fragrance is not suitable for the older gents, due to its burst of fruitiness and sweetness it just gives off the air young and freshness and may not be suitable for the older man.

            I do like the look of the bottle which the aftershave comes in. I like the red on the bottom of the bottle, which kind of reflects through the liquid as the light goes through it which gives a nice effect. The shape of the bottle is also good, the glass is smooth and feels nice on your hand. The shape of the bottle and the ridges on the side also allows you to pick the bottle up easily and grasp it in your hand.

            Over all this is a nice after shave. It is the perfect fragrance for young men with its bursts of fruits and sweetness. Perfect for any young man.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              My fav smell and one i'll keep of buying for a while !

              This is the most attractive smell know on the face of the planet.

              It comes in a box oblong shaped with a deep fading grey on the top and middle and a vivid red which other wise covers it completely.

              The glass in which the liquid comes in is a kind of oval shaped glass with these smooth ridges along both of the sides. It also dents in slightly. It fits perfectly in the grasp of your hand also.

              When you take the smooth little grey top off , you are exposed to the obvious and classic spry shaped nozzle that ejaculates the spray. It bursts out a decent amount.

              The smell is the sweetest fruit like smell I have smelt yet but at the same time keeps a powerful, manly enriched odour that does stay with you. It's a smell for a younger male that is able to potentially show his feminine side as the smell in a way could be mistaken for a ladies at first. However, do not fear the smell is actually more that women really, really enjoy and I have had many complements about it

              I have had it for around 5 years and will continue to buy it as it is by far the most interesting and seductive smell for a man yet.

              One of the best eau de toilettes i have ever brought, great product

              After buying this my son for Christmas I feel obliged to write a review on it. I paid £38 for a 75ml bottle and it was worth every penny. He absolutely loves the scent it gives and it is very long lasting.

              He wears it every day and thinks it smells lovely. I think it is a very good product for people aged 16-30 as it is definitely a young persons fragrance

              His girlfriend loves the scent of it. She even asks him to wear it every time he sees her. She thinks its a great eau de toilette and i think her opinion proves just how good this product is.

              The product is very good value and I have no hesitation in recommending it. There are many other eau de Toilettes available but none seem to compare to this

              The product can be found in all leading fragrance shops like Boots, Superdrug and The Perfume Store

              I'd buy it and im female!

              LaCoste Red and Eau Du Toilette for men, can be found in most leading drug store such as Boots and Superdrug, my favourite smell ever, nothing can ever take over the great smell of this aftershave.

              I first came into contact with this smell when i was dating about 3 years ago and since then its become a smell i cant do without, I know that I'm a female and its not made for me, they have lacoste pink for ladies but to be honest this smell is just amazing.

              i have bought it for myself and i do wear it i believe that if its made for men to wear and girls to like then why cant girls wear it as men like the smell also.

              Other leading brands just cannot compare in my eyes really, you have other ladies brands and top names like Britney Spears and Kate Moss but they just smell cheap and flowery, unlike this one.

              Bought at a reasonable price i've got the little bottle at £20,00 and they do rise in expense but it is much worth the money! so go on live a little ;) you wont regret it!

              Great fragrance

              Lacoste Red is one of the nicest fragrances available today. Having sampled many of the different fragrances out there, Lacoste Red was comfortable one of my favorites. As I have stated in my review of the general Lacoste brand, it is a very fashionable brand and definately popular among the youth.

              This spray is good value for money as it is not too expensive by comparison to other brands such as Armani etc. The box set is a very good value and would make an ideal Christmas present for any man. Not only that but its a treat for those around them as the fragrance is great.

              Amongst its notes are Maclura Fruits, Jasmine and Vetiver. It has a sweet smell and has a good degree of strength that will keep you smelling nice for hours. Great for a night out such as going to a club where smelling top notch is important.

              Amazing Fragrance

              I own many aftershaves in my bathroom but i have to say that red lacoste is one of the best i've ever had. I first purchased red lacoste about a year and a half ago and from trying the first spray i simply fell in love with it.

              It has a very sweet, suculent smell to it, that is perfectly light and fresh compared to Hugo Boss or Joop. The aftershave is quite underlying, and it dosent shout out with a strong scent. However, i think this is really quite a nice characteristic to the aftershave and different to the other ones out there.
              I have three bottles of 30ml red lacoste and i wear it for just about every occasion. Lectures, work, dates and night clubs, and at all of these places, compliments come flying at me. I have guys asking me where i got it from and that they would want some for themselves.

              These reasons are why i wrote a review because i thought i would share my feelings for the aftershave. However, I suggest that you should go and test the aftershave out at a shop before, to see whether you like the fragrance, as £30 is a lot of money to spend, especially for students!
              Overall i love it and always will.. One of the best aftershaves for men around at the moment.

              Disadvantages

              Great Fragrance.

              ...Introduction...

              Following on from my recent reviews of Calvin Klein's CK One and CKIn2U I have decided to review another very well known fragrance brand in Lacoste and their Lacoste Red fragrance for men which is one of Lacoste's most well known fragrances.

              ...Lacoste Red...

              As you can see from the picture with this review Lacoste Red is supplied in a clear bottle which has red at the bottom and the spray inside is a reddy colour. There are a variety of other items included in this range and they are the following items of Shower Gel, Deodorant spray and stick and aftershave spray and finally we have the Lacoste Red aftershave balm. It comes in a very stylish modern looking bottle with a grooved side which helps with holding the bottle when you spray.

              ...The Eau de toilette...

              This is although not my favourite Lacoste fragrance it is still one of my favourite fragrances overall and you can buy the eau de toilette spray in two different sizes of bottle, these sizes are as follows 75mls and 125mls. The prices of these will range from around about £20 for the 75ml bottle and around £35 for a bottle of the 125ml size which is what you would be expected to pay for most fragrances of this kind.

              ...The Fragrance...

              As I mentioned in the last section this is one of my favourite fragrances and although beaten by the Essential fragrance is still one of my favourite Lacoste fragrances. This fragrance has a really lovely clean scent which has hints of apple and has a very floral scent mixed in with the Apple. It also has hints of cedar wood which make this a very distinguished fragrance which suits males between the ages of 18 and 35.

              As you woul expect from a fantastic fragrance brand like Lacoste this fragrance is very long lasting and will suit a variety of different occasions. It is great for a night out on the town and is also suitable for everyday use for work and home. I have liked all the Lacoste fragrances I have tried and this is certainly one of the fragrances I have on my checklist for my next fragrance purchase.

              ...Run up to Christmas...

              I really expect this fragrance to sell very well indeed in the run up to christmas as I expect all the mens fragrances from Lacoste to as they all have great gift sets in stores now with great deals. So if you are thinking of getting a fragrance gift set for someone this Christmas then look no further than one of these packs as I'm sure it will go down very well with whoever you buy it for..

              It would also be a good idea to search around on the internet for some websites which sell this as you might find a really great deal that would be stupid to pass up. And really I would say that for any fragrance in the run up to Christmas as wholesalers offer great deals on places like ebay.

              ...Overall...

              This is a fantastic fragrance and one I have loved for around four years now. I have never owned one yet but It is certainly on my checklist. Also check out Lacoste Essential in shops and the internet. I will be posting a review of that fragrance at a later date so keep checking back.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Have a try.

              This is nice.It is also long lasting,and can still be detected on my clothes after a night out.It is also quite popular,as people seem to recognise what I am wearing,usually by saying that they or if it's a female,their partners have it,or I smell gorgeous!! I have had no bad comments wearing this,and have also noticed a drop in price since it was first released,probably due to a blue version being released.Get a bottle,it's going to last,and wear it anytime.Get a spray at the counter if unsure,because you will get the smell that you will carry for a good few hours.
