Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Bleu Powerful for men review

Pictured: Lacoste Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 Bleu Powerful edt fragrance for men c/o Lacoste

Lacoste has a fabulous, classic fragrance for men which would make the perfect staple in a man’s fragrance wardrobe. Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Bleu Powerful is a fabulous eau de toilette for men which is a crisp, fresh scent perfect for spring and summer weather.

This is the ideal fragrance for the man in your life who enjoys casual elegance; the finer things in life without being stuffy. That is the feeling Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Bleu Powerful edt evokes throughout its’ fragrance experience. Although initially this scent acts like a fruity floral, it has a masculine, woody base which keeps the floral notes from being sweet. The result is a complex yet sophisticated casual fragrance experience. Love that!

Top notes: Watery Fruits, Pink Grapefruit, Crushed Leabes, Clary Sage

Middle notes: Orange Flower, Pure Air Accord

Base notes: Amber Woods, Patchouli, Oak Moss

My husband is definitely enjoying this fragrance! He wears it to work, as well as on the weekends. It has a light to medium fragrance trail so he can sit in the theater, or at a meeting without the people next to him detecting his fragrance. Love that!

If you are looking to get a head start on Father’s Day shopping, this is the perfect gift! You can find Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Bleu Powerful EDT online here.
