I don#t know what to say about this one... I bought it because someone told me they liked it in their teenage years. I was pretty disappointed with it. It only smells sweet, i can barely recognize anything in it... it's just isn't mine.
Lacoste Pour Homme by Lacoste, 2002
In style and smell reminds of Burberry Men, despite the apparent lack of originality, a very good scent. This fragrance is incredibly "friendly" which can't be said for many frags. The tea note and spices are strong, the tea note being stronger than in Burberry Men and also musk is quite more dominant in Lacoste PH. As the drydown slowly creeps in, one can easily get reminiscence of Bvlgari PH Soir albeit without that certain mediterranean character Bvlgari PH Soir contains. In any case, I'm pleasantly surprised by this scent, despite the fact it's not "original".
Figured someone needed to break the chain of negative reviews on this one... Lacoste PH is essentially versatile sophistication in a bottle. Right off the bat it seems like a fragrance for the office and casual-business. However, when worn a few times, one will realize that it is not that inflexible. Rather, it is a sophisticated fragrance, but "fun" at the same time. It is masculine, with a subtle sweetness (not the sweetness you would get from Rochas, A*Men, etc., but instead a more natural sweetness that you would get from any fruit). It is a tad bit synthetic, but definitely worth buying, if not, at least trying.
LuciusVorenus' review says it all, but anyway I'm going to add that I found Lacoste pour Homme metallic, synthetic, overly sweet and headache-inducing. It's just too much of a good idea. Rum? Who the hell wants to smell like rum? With grease and brown sugar dissolved in it?
This scent is utterly useless. As long as the original Jaguar exists, this should not. Fruit opening with some spice notes in the middle that run away like from skin like frightened cats within the hour, leaving behind a sort of lemony vanilla drydown that makes banality seem desirable. P&G seems to have given the Lacoste fragrance line the full 'New Guy in the Prison' treatment.
Purchased this in my early twenties, it fell out of use over the years, and I recently rediscovered it in a drawer (now in my early thirties). I gave it a test on my skin and found it was just far too sweet and the vanilla/fruit too strong for me now. I tried to wash and scrub the fragrance off my arm several times, but it was very persistant. It is not pleasant for me on my skin, the odor just got to me. Very long lasting and decent projection if you find that it works for you. I gave this bottle away to a co-worker with a college bound son. Surprisingly, almost universally, women liked it, too bad I couldn't bear it myself.
That's a lot of ingredients! Actually there's only apple vanilla and juniper if you search for it. Smells VERY cheap. I tried it beacause some people said it's fruity. Not true. Smells old, boring and actually weird. What a composition - sweet vanilla and juniper which reminds me of forest. Plus the synthetic a'la hugo boss apple. I don't recommend it, very disappointed.
Lacoste Pour Homme is a very well constructed and balanced citric aquatic that though not innovative or uniquely original in conception, is outstandingly executed and one of the best aquatics on the market. The beautiful opening of citrus and apple integrates very well with the juniper and cinnamon that never offends and manages to hold a very reserved and balanced personality without ever overwhelming. One of the best uses of apple I have come across in a fragrance, it seems to give the grapefruit a bass from which to balance it against the spicier middle notes. Incredibly pleasing, becomes somewhat linear once the vanilla ripens over the middle and top notes, but the vanilla only seems to add a creamy note without losing its balance or becoming overly assertive. The sandalwood and cedarwood make for a light foundation that allows the vanilla and musk to come through unmolested. This give Lacoste Pour Homme a lighter feel but because the scent is so well balanced it doesn´t detract from the overall scent in the slightest. Incredibly versatile, pleasing and refined. Longevity is not bad, 5-6 hours is the standard, though on some skin chemistries this one never goes beyond a skin scent after the initial thirty minutes of application so a blind buy may not work for everyone. The epitome of well executed, well blended and organically based.
Was a great free acquisition. This scent is my go to when I don't know what to wear from my collection. This scent has great projection and longevity. It can be worn all year round just be easy on the trigger during the hotter months. I smell the plum, apple and vanilla through the entire scent. It gives me a mysterious feeling. I was completely surprised by this Lacoste fragrance. I wouldn't go out and buy another one but it was easy worth it for free. Overall 8/10
Very deep and rich fruit, pepper and vanilla scent. It's the best Lacoste I've smelled so far and it's one of my favorites of all time. Excellent projection and longevity on me. If it's a bit colder you can wear this anytime. Relatively safe, but different as well! :) LOVE IT!
