Lacoste Eau de Lacoste Noir for Men

With Father's day a little over two weeks away (June the 16th) you may be on the look out for a gift or two for ol' daddy dearest or you may be a little like myself and known to dabble in the odd aftershave or two.
I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that they have stolen a quick spritz of their boyfriend's aftershave? Heck I have even been known to purchase men's fragrance's with a personal favourites being Diesel Only the Brave and Paco Rabanne 1 million - just don't wear 1 million out on a Saturday night or you will smell like half the club.

Lacoste Eau de Lacoste Noir is described as "The spirit of a warm summer night now captured in a bottle" and is of course an evening fragrance so it is a little stronger than your typical day time offering. Despite being an evening option it is still a clean and casual scent that is not over powering all the while being refreshing and slightly fruity. I wore this today and will admit that it is probably a little too masculine for a little 5ft woman like myself but it's staying power is second to none. 

The only thing I dislike is how sloppy the bottle is - they have literally taken the embroidered trademarked crocodile that you see on every pretty boy's chest and slapped it on a plain black bottle. Lacoste would have never have gotten away with this had it been a female offering. That aside I do rather like Lacoste Noir and think it is a pretty unoffensive fragrance that most men will enjoy.
