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.

How fabulous are the three piece above! Although the booties are from fall, they are still perfect for early spring when the weather isn’t always warm. I love how all three of these pieces sparkle and shine. They are fabulous! I am eyeing those mules for spring. Love!

The Donald J Pliner spring 2017 launch event at Santana Row was so much fun! The shop offered yummy bites, Pliner Punch, and live music. We also got a in-depth tour of the spring 2017 collection; which is fabulous of course!

It was really fun to meet up with my friends Dawn and Rommelyn. I also loved meeting local blogger Erica Luo, she was so nice! Be sure to check out all of their blogs too! They all embody our local style here in the Bay Area.

Nautica Voyage Sport edt for men review

nautica voyage sport edt fathers day gift idea

Pictured: c/o Nautica Voyage Sport EDT for men

Nautica Voyage Sport EDT is a new flanker fragrance to popular men’s fragrance Nautica Voyage EDT. This fresh take on Voyage by Nautica is a nautical, woody scent which offers an ideal fragrance experience for men on warm summer days. Love that!

The zesty, green top, and middle notes, combine with the woody, musky base to create a nautical fragrance experience with a slightly warm, woody base. It is ideal to wear throughout the summer on a daily basis. Nautica Voyage Sport EDT is light enough to wear to the office, and sporty enough for weekend activities. It is quite versatile!

Although most eau de toilette’s disappear after four to six hours, Nautica Voyage Sport EDT lasts throughout the day. It is long-lasting, and complex; a joy to wear throughout the day! My husband loves it! Of course, I like it on him 😉

 Top notes: sea spray accord, sea salt, coriander

Middle (heart) notes: citrus zest, geranium, green peppercorn, apple, palm leaves

Base notes: Brazil wood, musk, patchouli, vetiver

If you are looking for a fabulous gift for Father’s Day, an upcoming birthday, or late graduation gift, Nautica Voyage Sport EDT is the perfect choice! This is also a great gift idea to keep in mind for the holiday season later this year 😉

Hopefully Nautica will come out with more products in the Voyage Sport scent. My husband would love to see an after-shave, shower gel, and travel size spray. Perhaps a gift set will come out for the holiday season! Fingers crossed 😉

 Nautica Voyage Sport EDT can be found online here.
