    Essential by Lacoste

    This is another inoffensive fresh scent that like so many of its brethren fails to leave any lasting mark. There is nothing about this Lacoste creation that is bad per se; it smells fresh, crisp and nice enough. But there is also nothing really that good about it either, and certainly nothing about this makes it essential to one's wardrobe.

    The citrus topnotes blend with something green and slightly herbaceous before fading away to leave a lightly spiced floral heart. This soon fades into a base of patchouli and sandalwood. The longevity of Essential is about 3 hours and it has a decent projection.
