Lacoste Essentials by Lacoste gives out a crisp and clean fragrance that has a patented time-release technology which slowly releases tinges of fresh yet energy-filled top notes of tomato leaves, bergamot, cassis and tangerine. The scent this combination provides is made to stay for the entire day.
Also, there are additions to the fragrant concoction that makes Lacoste Essentials a new unique experience to remember. These additives were the perfume’s base notes, namely, patchouli and sandalwood, which in turn, are the two best woody fragrances.
Although Lacoste Essentials’ scent is not awful, it is not something that is original. Some hate it, saying that it is fragrant for someone who likes to smell bug spray all day long.
The scent it emits is unparalleled when it comes to uniqueness and sophistication. However, many have stated that the scent only takes a short time before disappearing into nothingness. But other than the perfume’s short life span, Lacoste Essentials is a fantastic scent.
Some of the testimonies seem to contradict with one another. Even so, every opinion must be listened to and taken into account for improvement.
Lacoste Essentials is also an oil-based perfume. This means that once it is not handled the right way, it could leave big yellow stains on the clothes, which are even more noticeable if the shirt is colored white or something light. This is why men should wear darker colors when wearing this perfume.
The perfume’s box is relatively big with a glass sculpture that pops out. This sculpture is the infamous logo of Lacoste, which is the Lacoste gator. After turning the bottle around, the word “Essentials” can be read in all capitals. The bottle has a very attractive look, but not as attractive as perfume bottles for women hold. This is because men do not look for sexy bottles as much as women do.
The only bad thing with this perfume’s packaging is that the nozzle built for the spray is not as secure as it should be. In fact, for most of the bottles of those who own one, the nozzles are not there anymore.
What the customers have to say
For most Lacoste Essentials buyers, this is certainly the perfume scent that can impress anyone who is in the immediate environment. In other words, Lacoste Essentials has the ability to turn heads and get some smiles.
Although the scent is not as yummy as other fragrances, it is still addictive in its own manner. Actually, one tiny little spritz of this wonderful smelling perfume is enough for the scent to be sniffed from a mile away. It has a very attractive aroma.
For some, however, they had to spray the perfume on them a couple of times before they actually got a worthy whiff of Lacoste Essentials.
This is probably the biggest dilemma of those who are big fans of Lacoste scents and Lacoste Essentials, specifically. This is so because a single bottle of the aforementioned perfume costs around $70.00. Others complain that this kind of pricing is not worthy of something that smells a lot like bug spray.
Although some testimonies say that the scent of Lacoste Essentials easily withers, some still say that they have tried spraying a little on their skin one night, and end up waking up to the exact same scent on them.
