Lacoste Original

This 1984 Fresh Chypre from Lacoste opens with a terrific spicy citrus with lavender. The more I wear this fragrance, the more I like it....especially the opening. There's a very deft use of Clary Sage here and is indicative of the period.

The heart is a slightly spicy floral accord that is the perfect amount of "green". This comes courtesy of Galbanum and the mysteriously listed "green note" usually found in accords. Basil jazzes this up just a hair to keep the edginess going.

It takes my skin awhile to give up the base of amber,cedar,vetiver,moss and musk......and it maintains a low volume in comparison to the initial accord progressions. In other words, the fresh and lively opening accords are a bit louder and project more than the bottom heavy hitters. It's a formula that works well with Lacoste Original. Big thumbs up for this underrated 1984 masculine.
