Reviews of L.12.12 Blanc / White

The initial accord is a soft, freshish, plastic aroma that is pretty much enjoyable. It’s a clean, texture-scent of the kind that is available in all kinds of products now days. The accord is principally accomplished by a fresh, light, almost-creamy cedar and cardamom combination on a light, creamy floral from the heart. The translucent, creamy cedar is the dominant note throughout the run of the fragrance, even though the base where it joins with vetiver and suede to continue the smooth linearity.

L.12.12 Blanc is an adequate scent. Its fresh, synthetic ambiance is pleasant and non-obtrusive, and it actually projects a little more than one would think for such a quiet, fresh scent, but it a little short on longevity, which is not a surprise for such a quiet, fresh…

Initial chemical smell may turn some off.
Fresh, citrusy, clean is the impression. Good for casual daily wear especially outdoor activities when you don't really have a need to burn through your more expensive scents. Makes sense for the gym. I do wish it had less of a synthetic smell but let's get real about the price range we are looking at here.

A good fresh, summer scent! To people around you, they're not entirely sure if it's a fragrance or just a super awesome body wash, as it gives off a very clean vibe. Like a "just showered after hitting the gym" sort of sporty scent with an extra hint of effort. Only a little effort, though. This scent is safe and doesn't scream for attention. Pretty much impossible to over-spray this one, since it's so light and inoffensive. I got this fragrance through a recommendation from the sales girl, who was very young. Figured young girls would like it more, until I got my first compliment from a middle-aged waitress. The next compliments I got were from younger ladies (another waitress at a sushi place, and one of my students.... haha). Like I said, clean vibe. People like clean!

Let's see..... definitely starts off with strong grapefruit. The dominant notes I get on the dry down are wood and leather. But still fresh. You never really lose that citrus note, even though it's more subtle after a while.

This is a rather nice, safe scent. I'm really digging the herby, green vibe. I think that would be from the rosemary note. At first application, I was reminded of Himalaya by Creed. After drying though, the Himalaya vibe is gone. I'm not certain what else I'm smelling, but it is composed well. I'd buy this one if I found it for ~20 USD.

Blanc/White is one of the best from the house of Lacoste! This fragrance is safe, inoffensive, and definitely a compliment-getter. While it's nothing ground breaking, it is pleasant and does the trick. Citrus woody scent with prominent sweet grapefruit note. The drydown is really fresh and invigorating. Good casual scent or "dumb reach" and younger ladies love this one. I think you can sample at Kohls and some department stores.

This is probably the safest scent that i own after Chanel allure edition blanche. I love this one for being such a beautiful scent that makes me sniff my hand again and again.
