I'm a huge fan of Lacoste's fragrances, can you remember the iconic 'Touch Of Pink' perfume, well that was my very first perfume growing up and I still love it now to this day, so when I heard Lacoste where releasing a trio of new L.12.12 Pour Elle scents I couldn't wait to smell them and give them a whirl. Lacostes three new scents are inspired by the freedom of movement and elegance of the classic tennis skirt, and reflect the three moods of a Lacoste woman – natural, elegant and sparklingly playful.
Out of the three, I have been testing out the 'Sparkling*' scent and I'm in absolute love with it! If your into your sweeter scents then your going to love this one because it's so girlie, sweet and playful and I think the packaging really reflects that too. Macaron and Cotton Candy are at the heart of this fragrance so as you can imagine when wearing this you smell good enough to eat, however even though this is such a super sweet scent I never find it sickly and the fruity top notes and musky base notes really do help to balance this fragrance out!
Top Notes: Mandarin, Red Apple, Blackberry
Heart Notes: French Macaron Accord, Cotton Candy, Lily of the Valley
Base Notes: Patchouli, Vetiver, Cashmere, Musk
The wear time for 'Sparkling' on me is great, it's not too strong or overpowering and it sits on the skin (or your clothes, as I go mad and spritz all over sometimes ha ha) exactly how it comes out of the bottle, and I really like that about a perfume. I've also found it to be quite a complimentary perfume where a lot of people can smell it on me and they seem to love it and ask what I'm wearing, and my Mum absolutely adores it too so I will be buying her a bottle soon I'm sure.
Overall I LOVE this new scent from Lacoste and I definitely want to collect the other two as well, I have been into store and had a whiff of the other two scents and liked them both but Sparkling is the definite favourite for me. I think it's well balanced sweetness won it for me and I find it to be the perfect daytime scent for me too.
