Lacoste Elegance is a perfume that many love for being very nicely done. The blend of fragrances works, which means the amounts of notes that were concocted were just right. But if the desire of the man is something that is overwhelmingly powerful, then Lacoste Elegance is not for him, because it is more subtle than strong.
It is much more popular for its herbal and spicy scents with an edgy kind of sweetness to balance things up.
The perfume’s opening is regarded as the one that holds the most attraction. There is a cool and herbal blast of thyme, juniper and mint. The thyme is in its finest form as a top note and works well together with mint, which works as the last note for the top tier of notes.
After twenty full minutes of smelling, the dry phase sets in. There is a fruity sweetness that is somewhat low-key.
And while the time continues to go by, the scent gets dryer and dryer. There are noticeable notes of woody cedar as it surfaces before the sandalwood and the amber.
Since this perfume contains more ingredients than the other perfumes that somehow smell a little like it, it is a more complex rendition. However, being more complex does not necessarily mean it is more dynamic.
It is the gourmand.
Lacoste Elegance might not be an outright gourmandish scent. It, however, contains gourmand elements that have been meshed with one another in order to come up with a hybrid type of fragrance.
The perfume’s sillage part is only moderate, which is right. If it was more powerful than it should be, then lots of people would be overpowered by nausea. The dry and woody incense-like smell does not irritate people.
Best among the rest
According to perfume critics, Lacoste Elegance is, by far, the best fragrance Lacoste has ever come up with. Contrary to what others are reporting, this perfume does not contain any notes of mint or chocolate. Perhaps they should have tried smelling the scent first before doing criticisms.
The notes that are most noticeable because of their dominating stance are cedar and sweet raspberries. The word dominating in this context is not at all negative. It only means to say that Lacoste Elegance is definitely elegant with just the right amount of power and domination.
Not for the pretentious
It is not pretentious unlike other perfumes. Lacoste Elegance is a real perfume suitable for real people. And since its lasting power is not as long-lasting as other perfumes, spraying some more on the skin and clothes could help in making the fragrance last longer than usual.
Although this scent smells really great, it is not bound to turn heads. Still, men, including the women in their lives, enjoy this perfume’s mild, woody and sweet scent.
Many agree that it is, indeed, quite sweet. However, it lasts for only a maximum of one hour before the fragrance disappears from the skin. The amber notes are more praised than the citrus notes because the soft amber fragrance is much more suitable for anywhere and anytime. For instance, amber notes are best used for summer evening so that the soft scent is retained and there is no whiff of the bug spray odor.
This scent has its own touch of femininity which most men are not big fans of. Although the entirety of the fragrance is very unique, the fact that it is more feminine than masculine bothers a big part of the male population, making them not include Lacoste Elegance in their top list of perfume to-buys.
