Lacoste, more commonly known for its sportswear, is a French clothing company that was established in 1933 and it is a brand where you will find high-end clothing, accessories, footwear, watches, eye-wear, and fragrance. This year, with all the excitement of the Summer Olympics, Lacoste released a limited edition to their most popular selling fragrances.
Many people don’t really think about it, but the sense of smell is a huge part of our existence. It plays very important part in the making of memories. Our sense of smell transports us back to pleasant and not so pleasant experiences in our past. Fragrance has a way of also setting a mood or creating an impression. Lacoste’s limited edition fragrance campaign, “Celebrate the Beauty of the Game,” can apply to the 2012 Summer Olympics, as well as to life in general.
At the end of the day, I like the Lacoste 2012 fragrance for its herbaceous combinations. We get a mix of grapefruit, cardamom, rosemary, cedar leaf, tuberose, and a few herbs as well as some cedar wood. By layering notes of spice, woods, fruits, and a touch of floral, Lacoste attempts to capture the “essence” of the sunny season. That said, I only really picked up on the top and the heart notes after several applications. Maybe it’s my persistent summertime congestion getting in the way, but the scent in general seemed to dissipate a little quicker from other eau de toilette I’ve used, e.g. Polo Blue.
