I’m sure it’s quite wrong to review perfumes by assessing the bottle but hey, our blog, our rules.
This is the latest launch from Lacoste, Eau De Lacoste Sensuelle, which is a sexy, pick-and-mix sweet, rosy fug, with a tiny hint of blackcurrent and the ubiquitous pink peppercorn to toughen it up. it reminds me very slightly of a more earthy and less sophisticated version of Jo Malone’s Velvet Rose & Oud
But what I love is the stylish midnight blue bottle, pleasantly heavy, wrapped with a pale pink satin thread and topped with a dark navy top that’s embossed like the Airtex fabric from which the Lacoste T shirt is made. A nicely grown up design that would hold its head up in any perfume wardrobe. Go easy with it, a little goes a long way. Available here from £32.
