Lacoste To Release L.12.12. White, Blue and Green

Lacoste L.12.12Lacoste is set to release three new men’s fragrances next year, inspired by the iconic Lacoste polo shirt, created by Réne Lacoste way back in 1927. Coded as L.12.12, (L for Lacoste, 1 for the material, Cotton Petit Piqué, 2 for the style, short-sleeved and 12 for the version number finally selected) Réne’s short-sleeved breathable cotton shirt was something of a revelation for tennis players at the time who were more used to stiflingly hot long-sleeved blazers.

While Lacoste polo shirts are currently available in thirty eight colours (from flamingo pink to majoram green and everything in between), these latest fragrances will be available in just three versions:

L.12.12 White
Simple, fresh and elegant, White opens with notes of grapefruit, cardamom, rosemary, cedar, enhanced by natural extracts of Mexico tuberose, and ylang-ylang. A base of sensual leather, suede and cedar wood runds this one off.

L.12.12 Blue
An intense masculine aquatic with extracts of peppermint and grapefruit, complemented by notes of aromatic sage, orange blossom, patchouli, amber and oak moss.

L.12.12 Green
Representing nature and well-being, Green opens with Italian bergamot, grapefruit and melon ice followed by extracts of verbena, lavender blue, thyme, birch leaf and fig.

L.12.12 White, Blue and Green is scheduled for release in February next year and will be available as a 30ml and 100ml eau de toilette.

Can You Name 5 Fragrances Containing Rum?

Bacardi RumAt this time of year it seems like we need little excuse to put rum into everything from Christmas cake to custard. So to keep in the ‘spirit’ of things (did you get that?) here’s a list of 5 fragrances that contain rum.

Lacoste Pour Homme
Elegant, fresh and a little bit dark, Lacote Pour Homme is a fragrance based around the mysterious scent of Dark Rum. A winning dash of fruitiness is added to the mix with Apple and Plum.

SJP NYC for Her
A stylish scent mixed like a cocktail. Addictive, fruity and colourful notes of Wild Strawberries, Bergamot Rose Damascena and Vanillary Rum celebrate the never-ending vivacity of the Big Apple.

Carolina Herrera 212 VIP for Her
A heady blend of unique notes to celebrate the talent of New York’s young creatives. Includes Rum, Passion Fruit, Gardenia and Vanilla to evoke their attitude, their originality and their style.

DKNY Red Delicious for Men
A tantalising and exotic mix of the fruitiest of aromas. Deep, mesmerising and intoxicating, DKNY Red Delicious blends notes of Cognac, Saffron, Apple Liqueur and Rum for a lasting impression.

Hugo Man
A fresher interpretation of Rum with crisp Lavender, Green Apple, Mint and Pine Tree. A dose of mystery for a scent that is otherwise as clear as day. Undeniably masculine and clean.

Lacoste Launches Joy Of Pink

Joy of PinkLacoste has launched a new addition to the popular Lacoste Pink Collection in the form of Lacoste Joy of Pink. This exhilarating new scent is inspired by an exotic Curaçao cocktail: colourful, sparkling and full of energy. Joy of Pink retains the same musky undertones of its predecessors but opens with an uplifting grapefruit note followed by cedar wood, peony and of course Blue Curaçao.

Lacoste Joy of Pink is available as a 30ml, 50ml and 90ml eau de toilette.
