Five Stars!
One of the best scents I’ve tried so far! Clean, fresh and not overpowering or “musky.” A scent for the 21st century man. A new go-to scent!

Earthy...organic...clean
non-imposing scent. Sneaks up on you smells very relaxed. The fruit/floral undertones soften it (tangerine, tomato leaf, rose) sandalwood, patchouli pick it up to a classy make scent

Not my taste
Smells too floral and green for me and probably suits a middle aged man way better. Definitely not a fan of this cologne.

My favorite.
This cologne is my favorite thus far. If you are wanting something different, I recommend this. The initial smell has a vibrant ting to it. Something I’ve never smelled before. I’ve had a monthly subscription for nearly two years, and receive this cologne at least three times a year.

I got this for my 1st perfume. I didn't pick it and it was sent to me. It is very musky and a strong masculine sent. Not for me, obviously because I'm a lady lol. Might smell better on a guy :/

Fantastic Cologne for Everyday Use
This is a great scent and perhaps one of my favorites. It's complex in that it's both fresh alluring, sweet and masculine. It'll most likely be my go to for the summer months.

Lacoste essential
Enjoying this cologne so far. Have known about it and knew the fragrance but never got around to purchasing. I feel like it's a more of a spring or summer scent though. Will definitely purchase in the future.

I like this scent. Actually own it myself. The opening I get a lot of citrus .Smells like lime and orange to me. The tomato leaf lingers in the background. Little bit later I get a spicy smell from it too. Dry down is more woodsy on my skin with a little floral type smell. I'd also recommend their Essential Sport fragrance as well.

This service rocks. The colognes are real and last. Great selection of high end colognes. I can sample all the big name brands without dumping loads of cash buying big bottles. The collapsible, mobile, compact dispenser is great. Lasted the whole month. La coste essential is ny current cologne and i love it. The descriptions of each cologne on Scentbird website made it easy for me to make my choices. Dudes..u should get this.

Fairly light and artificial smelling, like one of those bad drug store colognes. I would only wear this after I have rubbed most of it off, then I am left with a light laundry sheet smell.
