I used to have this and gave it to a charity shop.
It's horrible, unwearable, harsh synthetic trash. Utterly foul.
Somebody gave me a sample of it yesterday. Smelling it again reminds me
just how much I dislike this kind of chemical soup. The sample has gone in the trash.
This fragrance is a fabulous summer scent...flowers , citrus crush , candy floss ...get your shorts on and polo shirts, spray some if this and hit the beer gardens. Wonderful longivity and projection that settles into a clean linen after 6 hours.
While absolutely starting off with citrus notes this tones down dramatically within moments presenting more floral and fresh scents. This is. Everyday general purpose EDT nothing earth battering thy has not been done before, but he key is Lacoste did it very - very well ! It is a great every day scent around he house, shopping or in a toned down office setting. Honestly the scent makes me feel good. It is similar to the noir but less citrus notes. I wold recommend this over all he others in the oil ours series. This really was a surprise !
Surprisingly a solid little citrus fragrance, with a great ruby red grapefruit accord. This one was just ok at first, then it really grew on me. In the opening I pick up on the grapefruit, paired with a sweet tangerine, cardamom, and rosemary, blended very evenly, with the citrus notes a little more on top. I'd say the grapefruit is quite synthetic smelling though, as it smells more like some type of grapefruit soda or citrus candy, as opposed to just grapefruit. The heart notes make the fragrance more floral, with a subtle blend of tuberose and ylang-ylang, but I also get some type of ginger like note. The base is your pretty typical cheap smelling cedar, although a little more depth here than other cheapies, as the leather and suede notes are quite noticeable, not only in the base, but far sooner. It makes for an overall citrus fragrance, with more substantial notes than the norm, and balanced very well, suave.. smooth. I was able to obtain a .25 oz spray from amazon for 5 bucks with free shipping. A great deal at this price, but certainly not worth retail. This does remind me of True Religion, and even Polo Sport, but with more citrus, and no moss. I hear this lasts all day on many people, not on me though, I get 4-6 hours, maybe 8 hours on a more humid day. Projection is about average. I will be buying a full bottle of this, once I use up my small one.
I look forward to eventually sampling the rest of this line, since it's long overdue. Hopefully this lineup is more promising than the horrible Big Pony line from Ralph Lauren.
