Reviews of L'Homme Lacoste Intense

Why do companies keep releasing weak skin scent fragrances that have a great top note to trick the customer into buying the fragrance, knowing it doesn't last? Then they release an 'Intense' version that is mildly stronger in the opening, but still doesn't perform beyond average, if even that well. Well, sadly, 'L'Homme Intense' by Lacoste is another designer scent in this category.

The opening of rhubarb, citrus and subtle woods smells great. Very high quality ingredients, good blending and balance. I got so excited and thought, wow, this smells VERY similar to Azzaro's 'Pour Homme Night Time' but not so heavy on the rhubarb note and less synthetic smelling. Wonderful. This should be good. Err, well no.

As it calmed down, the rhubarb and woods takes over and it smells somewhat fruity, musky and woody all at once. But, about an hour in, I noticed the scent was dying down fairly fast and thought, maybe its just nose fatigue. No, its not, as I'll explain further. The base of slightly fruity woods came quickly a couple hours in and remained that way until it died down dramatically fast not long after.

With eight sprays (neck, shoulders, chest and forearms), longevity is between four to six hours maximum. Projection is solid for the first hour, but dies down to a skin scent with soft sillage within three hours. I sprayed over clothes and fabrics to test it as well, but it was barely detectable after four to six hours as well unless you bury your nose into it. Not very 'Intense' at all.

If you like the smell of this, pick up Azzaro's 'Pour Homme Night Time'. It smells about 90% similar to this but has above average performance, good projection and is actually cheaper. You could substitute that juice for this and get an 'Intense' rhubarb, citrus and amber layered woodsy scent.

The house of Lacoste is becoming known for making fairly weak fragrances, so I might have to put this brand on my 'never blind buy' list when I am shopping at discounters and online. You have to go heavy on the trigger with this to get an 'Intense' experience, and even then, it won't last past four to six hours. This smells great, but has some performance issues. Not recommended.

I donít like using the word Ďgenericí to describe a fragrance, but itís hard to avoid using it here. This smells like the epitome of the Macyís menís fragrance counter. If you got a cup and just ran around the counter spraying everything you saw into the cup, this is what it might smell like when you finished. Really. No personality, just an anonymous modern blend. Itís fresh, itís kind of sweet, itís kind of woody in that synthetic amber-y way everything is nowadays, thereís some unidentifiable fruit up top, it moves from tart fruity freshness to ambrox woods and sweet lavender amber tonka. It really seems like an attempt to be as derivative as possible. But itís not bad. Everythingís put together pretty smoothly and it has a polished, albeit completely synthetic feeling. I know for a fact that nobody will tell you you smell bad while wearing it, and youíll probably even get a few compliments. But I think this is best for the 25 and under crowd. It just smells so much like the mall, ya know? If I was a kid in high school Iíd be perfectly happy using this one as my every day all around go-to scent. Unfortunately, Iím not, and having tried many fragrances in my lifetime, I can safely say that this one has been done hundreds of times before in one variation or another. If youíre a connoisseur, avoid this, as it will surely leave you bored and shrugging your shoulders. Otherwise, itís okay. Safe and modern and containing many popular smells and ideas. Final rating: 6.5/10. Add a point if youíre just a casual shopper looking for something modern and decent to wear; take one away if youíre like me and donít need another Dylan Blue meets Legend meets Sauvage meets invictus. Oh yeah: performance is solid for both longevity and projection.

Smells great, just like the original. Great is very subjective if you haven't smelled the original, so to explain better, it's pleasant and clean like the original but with less citrus and a bit more wood and spice.

Performance may be slightly better with the Intense version but it's nothing great or amazing. Projection is average for the first few hours while longevity is improved into the 6-7 hour range, but if I can't smell it other than right against my skin, so not sure if longevity matters in that case.
