Lacoste, the French fashion house famous worldwide for the polo shirts and less memorable for some scented products, happens to own some really interesting fragrances. One of these perfumes is Elegance, a masculine oriental fougere introduced in 2007.
I’m not so into Lacoste perfumes, nor their line of clothing (I like Ralph Lauren!), but when I first sniffed Elegance, it gave me a nice impression. The time was nearly at the end of 2007 and one of my friends had just bought this and naturally praising its smell. The logical outcome is that I needed to test it, in order to see for myself.
And because I did not had a blotter available I sprayed it right onto my wrist. On my skin, Elegance behaved from the start pleasant and quite pungent, thanks to the top notes of juniper, thyme and peppermint. Later, in approximately 20 minutes, I was greeted by a heart, imbued with spicy accords of black pepper, cardamom, nutmeg and finally raspberry. And the final part brought forward a hint of gourmand note, embodied by the chocolate, amber, musk and sandalwood accords.
The video advertisement for Elegance is quite simple and it seems that the accent was placed on the bottle and the packaging box. The flask was designed by Denis Boudard, the famous French designer and features a sophisticated combination of glass and silver materials, in which one half is cylindrical and the other one rectangular. The second part of the presentation package was authored by Lutz Hermann Design.
