I've said it before and I'll say it again...It just wouldn't be Christmas if you didn't buy a fragrance for someone would it... Sometimes Christmas shopping for men can be difficult but the one thing that's sure to be a winner every time is an aftershave, I mean guy loves to smell nice, right??? So today I've got a gorgeous smelling aftershave by Lacoste that will be a sure hit whether your buying for a family member, a loved one or even a friend. So say hello to Lacoste's L.12.12 Blanc Eau De Toilette*!
Like all the Lacoste L.12.12 fragrances, Blanc is inspired by the Lacoste iconic polo shirt, this range acts as a tribute to the founder Rene Lacoste himself, its said that if you team the coloured fragrance with the same coloured polo shirt it will make the most out of the fragrance and intensify it, which I think is a rather cool/quirky fact!!! The Lacoste Blanc fragrance opens with a fresh, woody and herbal blend of grapefruit, rosemary, cardamom and cedar leaf to create a clean and aromatic scent which blends beautifully with its masculine yet floral heart notes of tuberose and Ylang-Ylang. If I had to describe this scent personally I would say it's a very clean, fresh, sweet fragrance and perfect for the younger generation, to me this isn't really a mature scent so maybe not one for your Grandad but more for your Brother or Boyfriend.
After testing Blanc out on my boyfriend, its clear to see or should I say smell (he he) that Blanc is very long lasting and lingers all day without being strong or overpowering at all. The packaging of Blanc is very simple and comes in a white glass bottle that is completely opaque and has Lacoste's trademark embroidery crocodile on the front of the bottle which I think is a really nice touch, it would certainly sit nicely on any mans bedside table. I hope you enjoyed my Christmas gift idea for the man in your life beaut's, you really cant go wrong with an aftershave can you!!!
The Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc Eau De Toilette is priced from £29.50 and is available HERE.
