    Land by Lacoste is a very warm, somewhat sweet fragrance with a prominent citrus on top of a smoky, woody base. The Citrus, of a sharp Bergamot variety, is very bright and crisp within the first 30 minutes of application. Sadly, it quickly fades after that mark, almost vanishing completely within the first hour. All is not lost however, as one is left with a powerful yet relatively smooth base combination of what smells similar to Palo Santo wood, Indian incense, and even a hint of Juniper and Cumin. If there are any rough edges to this base, they would be on the Cumin, which shows itself every once in a while bordering on savory spice and armpit sweat (as it usually does to my nose). I canít say that Iím put off by this slight acridness, as I feel it keeps the fragrance interesting and a tad rebellious, but some people may be more sensitive. After about 5 hours or so, all that remains is a sweet, slightly peppery and smoky Palo Santo wood. Once again, very warm and smooth.

    There are many fragrances of this variety, but Land is one of my favorites. It is quite direct and simple, with high quality, mostly natural smelling ingredients. The peppery, sweaty cumin gives it a welcome bit of dirty flair. The only aspect I can fault this fragrance on would be the short lived citrus (which is common). The notes that do stick around are still very fun and enjoyable. Itís not at all something I could wear every day, but it never disappoints when called upon. Quite a strong, grounding, and masculine fragrance it is.

    I love Lacoste Land: To my nose, its opening, has a beautifully defined niche quality. The opening aromatics, where the Artemisia or the galbanum (more likely the galbanum) provides a strong fresh and dry presence along with the citrus elements, is transparently gorgeous. It is an exceptional accord ó it has me sniffing for as long as it lasts. The middle accord is not quite as compelling as the opening, but it is a solid floral / spice accord which retains its aromatic qualities with its judicial use of pepper and juniper. To my nose, the middle floral is essentially rose and the dominant spice is a mild, gentle nutmeg. The important thing about the heart notes is that it holds steadily to the wonderfully delicate aromatic qualities established in the opening. The dry down is rich, masculine, solid, and very comfortable to wear, with enough sage to continue the aromatic quality of the scent. This is a great scent, but it has a down side ó it does not have enough longevity. In all, I find this is an intriguing scent well worth my purchasing. Too bad it is almost impossible to find.

    An unforgettable fragrance cant find it anywhere these days. A complex creation, very potent, long lasting frag much appreciated reminds me of Giorgio Armani Pour Homme.

    Dissapointing early nineties launch that didn't stay in production that long. Reminds of Hugo Boss Elements, both in concept and actual smell. Grab the terrific Booster from the same company instead!
