    Lacoste (original) by Lacoste

    The height of cleanliness, I imagine this to be a 1980s very French take on a sports scent by Lacoste.

    A simple and well-constructed fresh scent which suffers slightly from its limited staying power, otherwise this is an excellent adaptable choice for casual and formal wear. Lemon and bergamot are crisp in the opening if not long lasting, with pine continuing the shower fresh sensation amidst the florals that comprise the manly, spicy heart. This dries down fairly quickly to a smooth, masculine base of delightfully fragrant sandalwood, which reminds me of the sandalwood bars of soap that are ubiquitous to bathrooms all over India.

    Medium silage and short longevity in all weathers, don't be afraid to reapply liberally. Nevertheless, this is a must have and puts the modern interpretation of a 'sport' scent to shame.
