lacoste touch of pink



This scent is light, sweet with a touch of vanilla to it. It's girly, youthful and feminine without being overpowering or nauseatingly sweet. Lacoste touch of pink perfume is uplifting, bright, and cheery, classic but modern at the same time. It opens up quite orangey, but then I get notes of vanilla, jasmine and peach. It's fairly fruity but balances itself out once it's dried down. The staying power isn't really there, lasting between 3-4 house before needing reapplication. Overall I like Lacoste Touch of Pink, However it's forgettable and not really a masterpiece in terms of notes. However I'd imagine it would be a safe, inoffensive choice for most people. I heard somewhere that the Lacoste Touch of Pink gift set is one of the most given gifts during the Christmas period! The price is good for what it is and there is genuinely nothing wrong with it in terms of scent! I liked the fragrance overall but felt like it was something I'd smelt before, with no unique selling point.

  1. It's a pity it has no staying power, often the downfall of many nice perfumes

  2. I think Lacoste killed this perfume with changing the advertising campaign every five minutes when it was just released! Shame about the staying power, if it doesn't linger on my skin after a couple hours i always feel it's a waste of money...pretty bottle though! x

  4. I wish perfumes would last longer, they're so expensive and get used up so quickly because of constantly having to re-apply them:(

  5. This perfume reminds me of being at high school. Kinda like Britney Spears' Fantasy if you know what I mean? Its nice and girly, just affordable enough and quite light as well so its a bit rubbish that it reminds me of being 17 haha! :(

    Much love

  6. I liked this when I was younger, but my Mum said it smelt like cleaning products on me :/ To my nose it didn't, but I worried to everyone else it did and stopped wearing it!

  10. I remember all the girls at school wearing this, it followed the Hugo Boss Deep Red trend - consequently I can't really stand either, I'm afraid! The constant ads were super annoying, as someone above mentioned. x

  19. You're right- I work in Perfume and this gift set sells out every year! I think it's the easy option for most people, however something similar like Britney Spears "Fantasy" tends to last longer and is way cheaper!

    Insightful post x

  26. I agree completely, it's not a nasty scent... but it's such a plain boring scent for me that wont get people thinking "Ooh what's that perfume"
