    Question Cloning Lacoste Style In Play

    This is the only cologne that I ever really connected with personally... and it was discontinued a number of years ago. I'd love to try and make even a vague approximation. According to the community ratings at Fragrantica, here's what people feel the notes are :

    Green apple 31.67%
    Pine: 16.3%
    Thujah: 11.45%
    Jasmine: 10.91%
    White musk: 9.5%
    Patchouli: 7.27%
    Cedar: 7.00%
    Vetiver: 5.79%

    I got the equivalent essential and fragrance oils, just for the hell of it, to see what would happen. And I'm definitely picking up shades of the original, but I'm sure I'll need to dive more into aroma chemicals to really get close.

    Has anyone tried to clone this cologne or have some general advice regarding the particular notes involved?

    It was discontinued like, 4-5 years ago. It's all old stock and perfume does not have an indefinite shelf life.

    Decided to take your advice. Bought some from the most reputable dealer on eBay.

    I owned and used plenty of it while it was still in production. The bottle I just received is absolutely not usable, and way past its shelf life. The top notes vanish instantly, and the residual base notes have that distinct "old perfume" scent; dead flowers and stale musk. The old stock is useless.

    Again, it was discontinued in like, 2008 or something like that.

    So again, looking for any tips from anyone who used or remembers the scent!

    That was unlucky. I have many vintage perfumes and it is rare for one to be so off. Might worth another try.

    I smelled a Lacost today but it was the green liquid with just the croc logo on a white panel. No idea which that was, but it was very fresh and bracing. I would hazard a guess at some DHM in there.

    I own and regularly wear bottles of perfume that are 80 years or older. Many are fine as long as they were kept in the dark and sealed. You must have bought a bad bottle or were expecting the worst and fulfilled your own prophesy.

    That's interesting that you were even remotely able to get something similar!

    I'd love to do this for my Candies for Men.
