Bohemian rhapsody of floral notes bringing a real time feel-good sensation. In times where linear fragrant compositions are in vogue, Eau De Lacoste defiantly evolves, transitioning from classically influenced tart citrusy/pineapple opening to modern, woodsy-oriental fusion.
While leaning heavily towards the customary Lacoste line, Eau De Lacoste sets out on a mission to explore the thoroughly modern flourishes in perfumery.
The perfume opens with pineapple lime custard note, generously sprinkled with caramelized sugar and seasoned with lemon peel. It is an energized jolt, an instant rush of adrenaline in a tired, dull body.
In the heart, the main pineapple note dances with Sambac jasmine and orange blossom one tune at a time.
In the dry down, the pineapple never leaves the main stage, but it is blended seamlessly, ensuing a delicate, soft, comforting effect.
All of this is achieved through the base notes: peru balsam, sandalwood, vetiver and vanilla.
Since winter is that time of the year that asks for heavier perfumes, I suggest you to break this “tradition” and start a new cycle of perfumes that float effortlessly around you, like this light, sweet, fresh concoction.
My only problem with this perfume is its sweetness. While being a massive fan of pineapple note in any fragrance, I cannot help but feel intimidated by the syrupy feel of the pineapple. Due to this overtly sweetness, I dare to label the perfume as balsamic and soapy, although the label clearly clashes with the freshness the perfume provides.
All in all, a true fragrant delight for every pineapple scent lover!
