Thread: Best Lacoste?

    Default Best Lacoste?

    What might the best Lacoste Cologne for men be? I've only tried Booster which I found to be horrible.. I would like to try more from their house though. They seem to be particularly popular amongst younger men, which often means they're light with poor longevity.. but hey..I'm willing to try everything.

    You're not the only Muppet.

    Lacoste Land is the only fragrance from this house that I have found worthy of a full bottle.

    The cucumber in essentials might be a hit or miss and I didnt particularly care for it, either, but a lot of folks do like it so you might want to check it out.
    I, personally, had a somewhat undefined fling with Elegance, found it very nice and distinctive.

    The very Green feel of Essential is exactly why I like it, to each his own. Its on my 'to buy' shortlist for this summer.

    I've not tried Land or Booster, cant find anywhere that have them to test. Lacoste Original is quite enjoyable too, most others are 'meh', Essential Sport is ghastly!

    I am pretty fond of the Grey Bottle, Pour Homme. It's a really nice scent that a lot of reviewers on this site tend to hate. Its pretty sweet, so you have to be ok with that. It's like a dark vanilla. Almost comes off smelling of caramel, but really a really deep and dark version. Dries down smelling like a new wooden chair with a hint of vanilla still, of that makes any sense.

    I'm going to have to add my vote for Lacoste Original. I recently purchased a big bottle for old times sake and it is a very nice fresh sporty fragrance, nothing complex but it does its job when you want something fresh and uncomplicated.

    Lacoste Style in Play seemed really light and nice.. but I couldn't smell it after an hour. I've tried that and Essential.. both were unremarkable.

    Pour Homme, an understated office scent.
    Original Lacoste is very good, too, but there are better in the large field of lemon scents.
    Challenge might be worth a full test wearing after sniffing it on a test strip.

    My first Lacoste was Booster, which I bought when I was 16. But that was a small bottle, I think it was 15ml. I finished it in a few months and moved on. For the past few years I have bought Essential, Lacoste pour Homme (light grey bottle), Style in Play, Cool Play, Elegance, Land, and Challenge.

    But, recently, I revisited Booster and have grown to like it more than before. It really suits the weather here. The opening is very refreshing.

    Anyway, I think Land is a better fragrance, while have yet to try the original Lacoste.

    Essential isn't really my cup of tea and although Challenge isn't bad, It's so common it hurts...

    Essential is quite nice. A very green and inoffensive scent. Perfect for the really hot days of the summer.

    I started my frag journey many years back with Lacoste frags -- the first frag I finished was a tall green bottle of Lacoste Eau de Sport Vivifiante (launched in '94 I think, most here have prolly never seen it) -- I still have fond memories of it, the closest to it might be Lacoste Original. I've owned and finished Lacoste 2000 also. Not really keen on the house's other releases except for L.12.12 Blanc and Essential Sport (the latter being a sillage bomb, which I liked, but haven't pulled the trigger yet for a full-bottle).

    Booster is my favourite. I love the natural eucalyptus in it.
    Second best for me is the original Laoste. A simple but gorgeous soapy lemon.

    Essential is easy to recommend. It's on my list of maybes for next summer. L.12.12 Blanc is one I'm kind of fascinated by. Something about it keeps me coming back to sample again even though it's not the kind of scent I go for.

    omg lol.

    Original post was like "you're not the only muppet".. I totally forgot.. this was when BN turned all of our avatars into Muppets for April Fool's! LOL I thought I got hacked or something.

    Anyways..
    Now since being more experienced with their line. I have tried:
    L.12.12 White
    L.12.12 Green
    Booster
    Challenge
    Essential
    Essential Sport
    Elegance
    Lacoste pour Homme
    Style in Play

    I do own Elegance, and absolutely love it. Very underrated stuff.

    I find Lacoste pour Homme, Essential, Style in Play, and Booster to be ok, not bottle worthy unless at a low enough price.

    The rest of them are bad, Essential Sport opened up nice, but dries down very bad and chemical smelling. Challenege's record speaks for itself I think.. total waste of alcohol, glass, and atomizers lol.

    Not too much left of this house for me.. Wouldn't mind trying Cool Play, and the rarely spoken of Hot Play. I might get samples of the rest of the L.12.12 line, next time I am at Sephora.

    Elegance is a real good stuff and I love it. Highly underrated and hard to find.
    I tried all from the new L12.12 line and only found the Blanc (White) one better than the others. Bought it as the salesman pushed it too hard and gave it a at a good price along with a couple of Shower Gels (250 ML Blanc & Challenge), few sample vials and a complimentary Laptop Bag from Lacoste. But now I find it very loud and overpowering. I never spray it twice. Just one spray is enough for the whole day. I never fades..never. Very high on silage and AWESOME longevity.
