It’s Monday! So, in the hopes of making your week easier through finding a perfect Father’s Day gift, I thought I would share Lacoste’s great new scent Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Jaune. Inspired by the brand’s iconic polo shirts, Eau de Lacoste L. 12.12 Jaune is a gorgeously summer appropriate scent which is perfect if your dad is a shower-and-go, low maintenance kind of a guy. Although the name is a bit of a mouthful, it’s got a really interesting backstory – L.12.12 collection is inspired by the yellow polo shirt. “L” stands for Lacoste, the number 1 symbolizes the “Petit Piqué” material used, 2 represents short sleeves and 12 is the number of prototypes made before the final product. Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Yellow—Jaune is a scent that triggers optimism, joy and positive energy. So, now you know!
I’m in a bit of a love affair with citrus scents, so Eau de Lacost L.12.12 Jaune is smelling pretty awesome to be right now. When first applied, it’s a light citrus which smells seriously clean and shower fresh. The top notes of Grapefruit and Tonic Water are amplified by pink peppercorn, and it just smells like the embodiment of summer. As the scent warms with the skin, notes of coriander and red apple become more apparent, and really round out the fragrance. After an hour or so, the base notes of vetiver, cypress wood and amber give the scent a real sense of strength and longevity. This is such a great fragrance, I guarantee your dad will be reaching for this all summer long!
Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Jaune is priced at £47.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
