I had this back in college years, it just reminds me a chill out time back then. Amazing burst of citrusy and fresh woody scent. Suit for everyday fragrance. It has a playful/sporty scent which is good for daytime use.
I definitely will recommend this fragrance to anyone who is looking for casual,fresh,playful scent.

Sillage:B Moderate, noticeable freshness
Longevity: B Not bad, lasted 4~6 hours on me
Compliment: B some say good, others doesnt seems to bother or nothing special
Value: B Price is okay to me, and worth a try. But somehow i like it!!

Very fresh, like you just got out of the shower. Almost a soapy scent. In my opinion, it's best to use just a few, light squirts, as it can be easily overpowering with a big squirt or two. I also have the body wash version of this, it's even better because it's more relaxed from being washed. Overall a good scent. Would recommend for guys in their 20s and early 30s.

I have the gift set with shower gel and deo. Have worn it a week straight hoping somehow at some point this would achieve some sort of breakthrough on my skin after wear after wear of disappointing performance. It's no use. Projection on my modestly dry skin has consistently been sub-par with Essential toning down quickly within thirty minutes into a skin scent that is very soft and takes a good deal of pushing my nose into my skin to pick up even after 4-5 sprays. It's a shame because I love the combination of black currant leaves and tomato leaf in this one, gives it a real spring-summer morning dew feel with a touch of the European countryside. This is a very linear, what you smell on top is what you get with a bit of rose entering the pictur after an hour and hints of woods in the dry down but with the tomato and black currant leaves still dominating. Essential lasts about 6-7 hours with projection soft. It is better suited for athletes who can't afford to be distracted by their colognes and the casual 20 something looking for something versatile that can be worn all seasons during the day.
I have finally given up trying to get performance out of this. The scent was very good and rather unique and distinguishing though it should never be used for formal events. Performance is very disappointing, odd considering how long lasting Lacoste Essential as Sport is.

Very distinctive scent, you know what it is immediately when you come across someone else wearing it thanks to the tomato leaf and cassia heavy composition. Fantastic for sports and spring, summer casual wear, very refreshing and soapy. Very green and citrusy, well balanced but unfortunately as much as I love the scent, my recent bottle from 2012 doesn't have the projection my vintage bottle had. This thing just doesn't project at all on my skin, even with 5-6 sprays within an hour I have to lift an arm to even get a whiff. Bear that in mind when considering this one for your collection. I hate to say it, but Belcam's copy of this called Ace is a bit too heavy on the cassia and tomato leaf and isn't as well balanced with the citrus and light woods, but its quite competent, much stronger and a better interpretation of the original formulation with excellent longevity and projection. If you are getting as poor performance as Legolas and I are, I highly suggest you look into Ace for about 1/4th the price. Longevity for me is about 5-7 hours, but rather faint quickly into application.

Although I voted to dislike this fragrance id really say im neutral to it. Its ok but nothing that really makes me like it but also nothing that makes me dislike it.

It has a very green,slightly sweet and slightly uplifting scent but really doesnt sway too much in any specific direction which is probably why I feel neutral on this fragrance. To me its really hard to describe. I will say I believe most people will like it.

Performance is average on this 1 in all categories. It projects just moderatly and lasts me 4-6 hours.


To me this is neither good nor bad which will cause me to give it a rating of 6.5 out of 10 !

A lot of people love this fragrance but to me its just average at best. With that said its not bad either.

I am surprised more people didnt put 'Love It' insread of 'Like it'..

Its spicy fresh, clean and enjoyable.. I dont wear colognes in a season , I think this is great all the time.. That being said it may be more of a fun scent rather than a serious, business, formal occasion scent...

Decent longevity and sillage.. I get hugs and compliments at the bar from the ladies..

A solid 8.5 out of 10.. Its my favorite from Lacoste.. I have a lot of colognes and would keep this if I had to get down to only a handfull...

I agree that this is primarily suitable as a summer fragrance (it's generally for that purpose that I've bought it a couple of times now) but I am not convinced that it particularly deserves to be classed (and, in some cases, written off) as a young man's scent. It is no generic aquatic (no aquatic at all), nor does it scream sexuality in a way that might be no more fitting for a more mature user than for an inexperienced teen. Although I find the sillage and longevity only fair anyway, to my nose and/or on my skin the combination of aromatic (I hesitate to say pungent) green/leafy notes and the pepper accord seems to work well with the woody and spicy base elements (not least the patchouli) to balance or hem in the citrus notes of a kind that I might expect to be more prominent in a fragrance exclusively suited to the sporty younger man. This is, at any rate, a scent that I remain quite happy to wear after around seven or eight years' familiarity with it. That is not something I can say for fragrances such as Lacoste Red or Burberry Brit, both of which I quickly found too floral, with too little of anything I might regard as masculine depth in the base, for me to want to wear them. That said, in my opinion, this has little or none of the dark, earthy or smoky masculinity of many scents based around oakmoss or vetiver, for example. In summary, I find this to be a very fine, green, adequately fresh summer fragrance with just enough spice, depth and refinement to save it from the fate of being undeniably and exclusively a young man's scent.

Adds a good combination of citrus,grass, and wood to make a very masculine, modern fragrance. I find this to be VERY wearable and unmistakably masculine. Good all year round, but better for spring and summer.

It was a blind buy for me.. which became my signature eventually. Really good refreshing fragrance. Just awesome. And amzingly stays 8-10 hours easily on my skin. I just love the tomato leave and citrus combination. Very well made. It is refreshing MALE(both men and boys can carry it really well) fragrance. And can be worn by any age group.

I do only 2 sprays of this. Just works well for me. Soon will be buying new bottle for myself. Will hand over older bottle to my cousin. As he also loves this one.

One more thing can some one suggest a fragrance which smells mile tomato leafy and green notes in it?

A lot of people bash this one, saying that it doesn't last, that it's generic...but you know what? This lasts longer than acqua di gio and gets loads of compliments!

On a hot day, put this on and enjoy. Girls love it...smells refreshing and green.

If your looking for an average sports cologne or casual cologne this would suit well! This fragrance opens up with a tomato smell with a hint of tangerine in the background! Smells very green and casual to me! Longevity is about 7 hours with weak projection! I have not received any compliments wearing this. Overall a decent fragrance but nothing to hype up

Aggressively green and fruity up front, like a watermelon limeade, then settling in with a little spicy patchouli. A bit simple. Moderate sillage, longevity moderate, characterized by a fast attack that fades within three or four hours. Better for a younger person and a little pricey for the degree of interest and sophistication the bottle. Not bad but not my thing.

Green, green and green. This fragrance is green. Yeah, green. A pleasant scent, but smell a little bit like disinfecting product, little bit synthetic. It has a very poor projection and longevity, last about one hour on me, noticed only by a few. Keeping that in mind, it can be used for casual or office, that about all i see for it, because i prefere acquatic scent for hot summer days. If I have to choose between it and Lacoste essential sport, I choose sport edition without hesitating. Here with the score:

Smell: 7/10. Not bad, but their is a lot of better scent for that price. Very green smelling.
Longevity: 1/5. Rude, but true. Last maximum 1 hour.
Projection: 1,5/5. Notice by a few only.
Versatility: 3/5. For daily use only. If you don't like acquatic scent, that might be good for hot summer days.
Overall: 12,5/25. Not a bad smelling fragrance, but lacking in projection and longevity, and you have to like green scent to appreciate it. It is a pass for me.

The top notes are really fresh, sporty and fruity. Reminds me a little of Ribena(blackcurrent juice), I guess thats from the cassia. Too bad they don't stick around a little longer as this scent becomes quite unrecognizable after about an hour. The dry down is slightly woody and green and that is the only way I can find to describe it. You know you're wearing a fragrance but its so faint and in the back round that it would be hard to distinguish it from other brands.
At first this kinda annoyed me but then I realized what kind of scent this is. A purely casual, sporty fragrance to throw on when showered after a game or even just chilling at home. This is for people who want to smell fresh and clean not looking for attention or compliments.
So is it versatile, no. The projection and longevity are poor too. I certainly don't buy into this 'time-release technology' marketing hook Lacoste throw at us because I have never gotten more than 3 hours with this stuff.
I personally find Lacoste Essential quite overrated, but if you're looking for an inoffensive, casual, moderately priced fragrance then it may be for you. 5/10

Fleshy and green, slighty soapy and powdery. I smell something slightly sweet. Maybe it's the cassia. I don't get it strongly though. Cassia smells like cinnamon. I mean it's also called Chinese cinnamon. Also no tangerine or rose. I find this fragrance very nondescript.

A rather harsh lemon and alcohol opening made me instantly regret spraying this on, but only moments later it rounds out as other notes appear at either side. One note is slightly green and I'm assuming this is what they are calling the "tomato leaf" note. It also claims to have blackcurrant (cassis) in the topnotes, and while whatever note is here does not smell all that true to actual blackcurrant absolute, there is a slightly sour note pinned under the 'green note' and I'll play along with the marketing and call that blackcurrant.

The initial impression of this is actually quite similar to YSL's Live Jazz, although I like the green notes more here. They smell less 'salsa like' than the notes in Live Jazz, and despite this fragrance being a bit 'rougher' around the edges, it all seems to work so far with the sporty vibe. Of course, I'm wearing this in my air-conditioned abode, and not in any kind of sporty setting, so keep that in mind. I've no idea how this holds up in the heat or with a bit of sweat.

And so now I wait, 30 minutes into the frag, and nothing has changed. Well, this accord as is is nice enough, but if nothing is to change for the life of the fragrance I'd be disappointed. I'm looking forward to the supposed rose and pepper in the heart, and patchouli and woods in the drydown. I'm trying to remain optimistic, but am beginning to wonder why I didn't wear something I'd know I'd enjoy today. Is this all due to the patented 'time release technology?' I suppose only time will tell.

Fresh, clean, with an interestingly round green note.. what else do you have to offer, Essential?

[into the dry down now...]

The scent has rounded out and gained a bit of a powdery/soapy note, and also has grown sweeter.. so I'm thinking the rose in the heart contributed to this, although there is no easily identifiable rose note to point out per se. The full effect of this is a very round and clean smell, the green aspects have been muted. It smells very faintly of sweet grass, but more than anything smells like a freshly laundered towel. It has a certain 'plush' aspect to the scent - the roundness that I spoke of in the topnotes was further fleshed out by the sweet and powdery notes and this creates a truly plush feel to the scent. Clean and inoffensive. Does the fresh thing better than Hugo XY - better than most fresh scents I've smelled in that it stays clean and fresh and relatively non-synthetic. It's just too bad I've smelled this same accord a thousand times in the laundry detergent aisle.

Not a bad frag by any means. But while the top notes suggest something potentially interesting, the heart ventures into cliche territory. Absolutely great if you want to smell like a fresh towel. I know a lot of women love that smell...

At the opening Lacoste Essential is quite sweet and feminine, but then it sattle down and becomes more woody and masculine. It's youthful, and it smells very green and refreshing. I suppose, thats because of ingredients like tomato leaves and other green herbs:)
This is one of my favourite summer fragrances. In my viewpoint it's already classic and it's perfect after shower on sunny summer days!
I give it 8/10 but it could be 9/10 if it was more versatile

If you're not sure about original or fake bottle, there are some good comparassion between them on youtube.

This is one of my favorite everyday colognes because it is simple and performs well. It really radiates on a hot day or when my body gets hot which is exactly why I like it. Say you're having a BBQ and you start throwing a football around casually and start to sweat a bit....well you might be worried you're going to start to smell a little but the essential just seems to kick in and you start smelling even better than before. It's a nice, simple cologne you can count on the entire day no matter what you're doing. Clean and fresh.

This is an exceptionally fresh and enjoyable scent to wear.

It is not sexualised at all. It is tame and innocent.

le petit philosophe.

This one was the first actual 'fragrance' that I ever owned, it was a gift that I had received for christmas when I was 15. I had no idea what it would smell of, I was just attracted by the slick marketing campaign (that television advert featuring the Feist song and the handsome fellow in the green polo jumping along the ocean tide). Although I do remember loving it when I first sprayed it on myself. It was pleasant and just complex enough, although coming back to it now I don't like it nearly as much as I somehow remember. And so, just like that, it is relegated to the mental back shelf that is nostalgia. It really is a young man, ahem, boy's scent. And it was perfect for what it was back then, in a very specific time and place (come to think of it, it was probably there with me during my first kiss). That being said, I wouldn't wear it now.

Note wise, I get a wonderful opening of somewhat undecided greens, a handful of tomato leaves and that bitter bergamot; quite lovely actually. But it soon dries down into a cloying and rather synthetic scent. I don't really get the rose as much as a rather peppery and synthetic woody accord that actually came across as quite cloying to my nose when I walked out of a department store with it sprayed on my wrist again the other day, for old times' sake.

All of that aside it's still a well made scent with greater than average longevity and it projects nicely enough. The bottle is a gorgeous piece of minimalist design with those curved glass lines and brushed stainless steel cap- I was considering reintroducing it into my collection merely to have it present, but upon revisiting it I cannot foresee myself ever reincorporating it into my current rotation or wearing it nearly as much as I did all those years ago, if at all. Although there is that adage stating that "you never forget your first". Forget? Maybe not. But needless to say, I have moved on to different, if not greater olfactory adventures.

How should a teenage boy smell? Ideally, like Lacoste Essential. When my son reaches adolescence I will buy him a bottle of this. It seems right for an active young man. It's not overly sexual, just fresh and aromatic. Lots of green leaves in here. It gives the impression of an outdoorsy male who has been playing ball in the park all day with his buddies and then goes home to grab a quick shower and throw on a new tee shirt before going to meet his date. Easy going, no fuss, a clean grassy scent. I find this quite appealing and youthful.

I really tried to like it, but whenever i wore it, it felt like someone's cooking gone bad. I smelled green apples and cardamom which is ok and nice on its own, and then comes the Tomato leaf monster which overpowers all the other elements giving it a very bitter accord. It is green in nature and hints at being sporty but cant seem to make up its mind in which direction to go. The fragrance lasts quite well on my skin but thats the downside who wants to smell like a tomato garden.

Nothing special about this one, but nothing to hate about it either. Hardly "essential". Many colognes use bergamot as a main note, including this one, but I don't detect much else going on for it to stand out. Could just as easily be named Lacoste Mediocre.

Can't say I really like this one. The smell is a shade feminine to me, and it smells really cheap to my nose. My wife was not a fan either, her comment was that it smelled like something she would spray around the house as air freshener. While overall not a bad smell, this fragrance has nothing to offer compared to the other options available for warm weather fragrances. Pass or try, but do not blind buy.

Before I started getting into fragrances, essential was really the first scent that I smelled that I immediately loved. I don't know what it is about it, but it smells so fresh, clean, and good to my nose. To me, essential smells exactly how it looks in the bottle. This is certainly for the spring and summer days, and I would put this fragrance in the category for the younger guys. If you like citrusy and/or fruity scents I'm sure you'll love this one. I've heard that plenty of ladies like this scent too, and if we are going to be honest with ourselves guys, that's the main reason we buy these liquids that we do. Also, for some reason every time I smell this I get the picture of green grass haha. It's essential that I always have a bottle of essential.

Lacoste Essential is a great spring/summer fragracne that is essential in freshness and has nice citrus vibes and dries down to a nice masculine sandlewood vibe. Perfect for casual every day use when you're on the go. This is way bette than the flanker Essential Sport

This is a nicely blended fresh citrus. It's almost identical to Byblos Uomo 2001 on me.

Essential has fresh green notes and a lovely sweet citrus background and I can just smell the rose too. I can't particularly smell tomato leaf though. (If you like an amazing tomato leaf note try Sisley's Eau de Campagne)

There is no problem with longevity or projection.

I actually prefer Essential Sport slightly but this is a really nice summery and very fresh scent.

I like it.

A decent fresh, fruity and floral fragrance which is a good choice for a guy who don't has any fragrance in this genre and he want something pleasant and safe to wear casually in spring and summer.
But if you already have great fragrances in this genre, save your money!
The opening of this fragrance is a sweet, green and fruity smell which is light and transparent.
This sweetness is smooth and OK. it's not that strong.
The fruity notes are not that fresh and citrusy. in my opinion the fruity scent smell more like juniper berries instead of bergamot or tangerine. but all and all, it's a sweet fruity scent. it's not citrusy. don't let the citrusy notes fool you!
In the mid the green vibe of the scent settles down and now the rose scent join in and you have this scent to the end.the rose note here is sweet and light but it's not feminine.
Average projection and weak longevity on my skin.
يه عطر خوب و خوشبو كه اگه تازه با دنياي عطر و ادكلن آشنا شدين و ادكلن خاصي ندارين اين ميتونه يه گزينه نسبتا خوب باشه. چون بوي خوب و عامه پسندي داره و شما ميتونين هر روز تو بهار و تابستون ازش استفاده كنين
رايحه اوليه اين عطر يه بوي نسبتا شيرين و ميوه اي هست كه كمي حس گياهي و سبز تو رايحه اش حس ميشه. بوي ملايم و خوبي داره و اصلا آدمو اذيت نميكنه
در ادامه بوي سبز و گياهي ضعيفتر ميشه و شما همون بوي شيرين و ميوه اي رو دارين به اضافه بوي گل رز كه به راحتي به مشام ميرسه
همين بو تقريبا تا آخر ميمونه و تغييري به اون صورت نميكنه
در كل عطر خوشبويي هست اما اگه عطرهاي تابستوني خوبي تو كلكسينتون دارين بي خيال اين شين چون هيچ چيز خاصي نداره و يه عطر معمولي و عاميانه هست كه بوي خيلي معمولي داره
پخش بوش متوسطه و ماندگاري زياد خوبي نداره

This cologne here is summer in a bottle. This reminds me of that smell of fresh cut grass for some reason but i like it. Its nothing too amazing but its a safe ordinary summer scent. The compliment factor for this one is moderate. Its not gonna be a head turner but you might get a few compliments here and there with it. Nothing amazing but definitely a solid scent for the collection. I would say try it out

It is another generic scent formulation that doesn't deserve high praise. I like Lacoste Essential for its simplicity and will purchase a bottle when my two other downtime fragrances (Burberry Summer and Lacoste White) run out.

I have a sample vial of this. While I like it, I wouldn't purchase an entire bottle of it. First off, it's marketed as a masculine fragrance, which I can understand, but I think I'd prefer it on me rather than on a man. I picture a boy (not a man) somewhere around his late teens/early twenties...someone who wears a fragrance not for personal enjoyment but "to get the ladies". It's an inoffensive, generic scent from the ubiquitous "sporty" cologne genre.

A sporty-barber shop frag, which goes all musky and damp...

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0 - 1 Hour. 3.5 inch projection Classic barber shop with sporty feel, not nice IMHO. Dated and should have been from the 90's

1 hour - 3.5 hours - 2.5 inch projection. Goes more damp and muksy and smells like something I would not want to mention for bad taste purposes.

3.5 hours - 7.5 hours. 1 inch projection

One of the yuckiest I have ever smelt

Cheapy, safe designer. I expected something very fruity and aquatic for some reason, so was surprised from what I got was a very green type scent, like leaves, vegetation and some powdery fruits. Like being in a strange greenhouse, steamy/humid tomato/vegetable leaves and the fruity vibe combined.

So basically the tomato leaf here really puts me off of what was a relatively generic, boring start. Creates a strange 'greenhouse-green' stuffiness that messes with the whole formula.

And also, very cheaply blended, the 'powderyness' stands out here, like Elegance and Challenge, also by Lacoste. Bad. I thought it may, because the bottle is very nice!

Very subtle, nothing was loud, with no real discerning quality, I was disappointed alright! Woods were so, so, every fragrance has them!

As one experienced reviewer put, if I may kindly quote 'Absolutely unessential'.

A scent is a scent right, and Ok, maybe forgive me for sounding snobbish? But look past it, there are far more involving works out there, and not half only in the niche game!

2/5.

Ok guys, here's my story....I was out with a beautiful female friend of mine & after trying out many different fragrances, she adviced me to purchase this. Personally I wasn't a fan. Too much of a leafy smell, just smelled like a bunch of minty green leaves, bushes, & trees to me. I really didn't like it, but she insisted & insisted. So I said what the heck, what's the worst that can happen?.. Now, I'm a 1/3 done with the bottle...guys EVERYTIME I walk in2 a room with this the girls are like "you smell soooo good!" or friendly smiling at me asking "Wow, is that u with that scent?"...and I mean just about EVERYTIME... It's come to the point where if I don't get a compliment, I think something is wrong w/their sense of smell!.. It still smells like a green minty forest to ME, but WOW, I am becoming a fan, besides who am I to tell these woman "Hey your wrong, & I'm right about this fragance?".. I think I'm just gonna keep on wearing it & keep my mouth shut :)

this one is very refreshing, green scent. Somehow gets me in a good mood. Last very long, 8+hours
**Before byuing this, I recommend trying Hugo by Hugo (1995). It`s quit similar in that its fresh, clean, green, but much more sophisticated, smooth and a bit more mature scent. Once you compare you will see that this is like a mint candy compared to Hugo. Hugo also outlasts this one by a couple hours in my opinion

If you're going to pick a 'fresh' scent this is a great choice. Essential manages to be light but still have a distinct personality. It adds a green 'edge' to a fresh scent base. Cassia, lime, pepper; these are all star players, and just a hint of rose at the bottom keeps the perfume serious enough to wear at pretty much any time of the year. Understated, masculine, and full of the energy of Spring - wear this one to feel motivated.

Essential by Lacoste


Lacoste Essential is a good, casual, Spring and Summer day-time fragrance. For the average guy, this will do the trick without leaving any negative impressions or having him smell like everyone else out there. At the same time, it fits right into the mainstream.

The top notes are fruity and slightly sweet. The pepper and woods in the background become more apparent after a couple hours as the scent settles down and help add a little depth. However, I would not classify this as a woody or spicy scent, instead it is fruity, with a transparent aura and an aquatic edge.

It has a nice smell. While synthetic, it is well done and never obnoxious or cloying. It's lightness and transparency keep it pleasant at all times. The scent does not change much over time, the fruitiness eventually dies down and transitions to a smooth, though typical, woody base that remains close to the skin.

Essential is perfect for warmer days when you just want to smell fresh and nice and aren't trying to make a statement or stand out. But people will notice it and enjoy it. It' can be used at the gym, for a casual date, the office, or for just hanging out with your friends.

It's also a great first cologne for younger guys looking to buy something.

Still, it's appropriate for all ages, especially the 30 and under crowd. Relatively inexpensive and easy to find, I would choose this over other popular fresh fragrances that can be found at drugstores, like Versace Eau Fraiche, D&G Light Blue, or CK One. Overall it's much smoother--no sharp edges or unpleasing qualities.

Longevity is good, 4 to 8 hours depending on the weather and where you apply it.

Projection is not strong, though it is apparent.

Fairly versatile with exception to nights out and formal events.

The opening is fresh, fruity, green, clean, bright, casual, lighthearted, friendly.

It's like stepping out of the shower on a spring morning, opening the window to your blossoming garden and letting a mild breeze dry your body while you're having a fruit salad for breakfast.

The drydown is somewhat woodier while retaining the apple note.

Start similar to azzaro chrome but in a less synthetic way and to a green side.
Then after about half-hour it turn too a more green smell and remind me of 212 carolina herrera.
Good for casual use in spring and summer.
It lasted very well for that type about 7 hours.
It's good but there is better.

This may be another generic aromatic green, but it is enjoyable none the less. This is one of those scents that i wouldn't necessarily want to own, but wouldn't mind keeping a 5Ml decant around :).
Personally i appreciate, and almost EXPECT every house to have their own personal version of the "generic green cologne". Sort of like a tongue in cheek kind of thing saying, "everyone else made one, we can too!!".

As i mentioned this is very enjoyable.
The sandalwood in the base is blatantly apparent throughout the entire piece, and gives that "seashore" ocean rotted wood smell, which is extremely memory jogging (i went to the beach every summer when i was a kid)
In the top i get an extreme bergamot kick, but oddly enough it doesn't burn my nose with it's acidity (maybe a different aroma chemical?) with some semi-sweet mostly bitter mandarin orange meat/rind.
Keep in mind, the top notes in this one are hard to dig up, but when you do, you'll really find this to be nice.
In the middle i DEFINITELY get the pepper, dry and aromatic, connecting the spazmatic base notes to the fleeting top notes, along with some soothing juicy floral rose(just a tad).
Did i seriously forget to mention the greenest part of this fragrance...the LEAVES..oh lord the LEAVES. They're very genuine, and in like a few of my reviews, i will also suggest you go out and smell the leaves in THIS fragrance to fully understand their HULK GREEN attitude!

I approve (love my decant)

I never liked the whole aqua craze, even when my dad was wearing Cool Water (yuck). This is a welcome departure. And it's tame enough to not offend the boss man. On me it lasts quite a while even though I have dry skin. It might just be because of all that Floridian humidity. Not terribly original though. It smells too similar to old spice et al body wash. But at least this one can be smelled outside of the bathroom.

This fragrance smells like "first job", not to manly-man, not too feminine. Ideal for 20s something males. It´s very clean, fresh and perfectly sweet. Not woody at all.

Despite of having nothing special, the basenotes, patchouil and sandalwood are great and last about 6 hour. The fragrance has good projection and wouldn´t bother anyone even if you exagerate on sprays.

Pretty good at start, but it gets a little annoying when using many days in a row, although is a honest perfume.

Final Score: 6,5 / 10

Lacoste Essential is a fresh and clean scent perfect for Summer. It was 95 degrees here today when I tried it. I like it. It instantly reminded me of beer spilled on a beach towel and left in the sun to dry out and sour. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as this scent triggers fond memories of days spent at the lake in my twenties. I might have worn this back then. It does make it a unique scent. I like the woody dry down as well. It's not bad at all. That being said, it's a little one dimensional. Nice and safe but nothing special.

Very beautiful, fresh fragrance. This is not a typical watery-citric scent. Laurent Bruyere's creations are always special and different, that includes both sexes. He's done an amazing job with L'Original from Decléor making it one of the best fragrance, and this one is another winner.
Like his previous fragrances for men, Lacoste Essential is not overwhelming and does not irritate. You can put a lot and it won't really bother people. This is very subtil.
One thing though I have to mention, if anyone wants to try Essential in a store, make sure you try it first before any other fragrances because you may find that the "tomato leaf" aroma is a bit strong. But if you start with this one, it won't bother you.

I love it. It's fresh and green with a rosy background. Don't be fooled by how it was packaged. At first, judging by the color of the juice, I thought it was just another lemony scent.

Yes, it's fresh but there's more to it than just that. The only con I could think of right now is if this is everyone's signature scent.

i liked the initial smell, it wasn't fabulous, but was a nice citrusy smell. It wasn't until the end of one evening when I kept smelling that hair salon smell, and realized that it was this scent on my skin. So, probably just a chemistry issue, but I certainly didn't enjoy the fact that I smelled like a hair perm.

This is another one of my failsafes. I reach for this when I want a no-nonsense, clean and manly scent. It is superb for sporty, active types yet also suits work settings well. It is very much a daytime affair however, as it lacks any depth or complexity.

I really love the clean note here, it's like a sweet green tangerine(!)It projects well enough on me to turn heads but then something happens like a boozy/alcoholic note? I couldn't work out where it comes from but this is the spilled beer/sour note which people have mentioned. I didn't find it a problem and it is quite masculine.

Unfortunately then it's all over. I think this is because in terms of brand image, Lacoste can never release a dark or mysterious scent. The image they go for will always be young, light-hearted and sporty so this is bang on target as far as I am concerned.

What can I say? I got a sample in 2009 summer at the airport and i smelled it a few times on the airplane and i really like it. I haven't bought it yet but this week i got a sample again and there is a note which is freaks me out. Kind of brings me a headache and becouse of this note it smells like a cheap plastic one. I don't know what to say, seriously. Not bad, but i can't say that this is a safe choice. I like aquatic fresh frags and i'm not a fragrance guru who says "it's lame, not unique, etc.." every time, but this is really a bad one. There are a lot of better ones on the market, still in the Lacoste house.

Definitely my favorite from the frags I own! Great longevity (more than 12 hours), great sillage. Girls love it. I really can't find a flaw in it. The only thing is that it's quite sweet and with strong projection, so it might get irritating to you at the end of the day, but only if you overspray.

Surely 5/5 from me

Lacoste Essential is one of those scents that stays and smell better on test strip but not on my skin. The scent is still pretty good overall and stays fresh and sweet; perfect for hot breezy summer day.

I also own Paul Smith Extreme Man and I am surprised that PS Extreme Man and Lacoste Essential smell very similar. The only obvious difference is Lacoste is fruitier, juicier, and much sweeter at the beginning while PS is a little dry. I also detect rose in Lacoste and geranium in Paul Smith.

The lasting power is about the same, which is not very long. I would be lucky to get more than 6 hrs, but usually I can manage to get around 4 hrs on both of these fragrances unless I use a lot, of course. I suggest testing this on the skin and then decide if it meets the expectation. For the price point, I think it is still on the expensive side. Luckily, woody aromatic fragrance is pretty common, so be sure to look for alternative and shop around for the best value.

A pleasant EDT. Input your notes are rich in shades of green and citrus notes leading to the dominant aroma of roses, but roses manly after all. Its base notes tend to be combined with the fresh wood aroma of roses.

It is eminently a youthful fragrance, I think is not suitable for anyone over 30 years, is too fresh and youthful. His season of use is perfect for summer, leaves a trail nice but subtle. Its use for special occasions I think is limited and does not go beyond the casual meal or night out at the nightclub. It has good length, up to 6 hours. Recommended for young users (teens and men up to 30).

Now 100+ degrees everday in Nevada and the title alone, "Essential," suits the purpose of this cologne. If you like green herbal cologne, this holds onto 'the green' for a good 3-4 hours then takes a subtle dry down into a tamed, pulsating sweet woody scent. This is truly only a summer scent as the longevity in cooler months is spotty.

I give it a 7/10.

REALLY nice! Citrusy, bright, fresh, and sporty. When I hear a reference to the "fresh, clean-from-the-shower" trend on men's fragrances, Lacoste Essential is immediately what my mind jumps to. Fresh from the shower, cleanly shaved, with a crisp white collared shirt. Exactly what I imagine.

One more thing - I don't find Essential to be masculine AT ALL. It smells just like a fresh aquatic or woody women's perfume. Especially when the drydown comes through. I'm sure it would smell nice on a man, but I think it would smell even better on a woman. Just saying.

For me Lacoste Essential opens with a fresh, sweet, but very synthetic burst. Not synthetic in a bad way, though if I overdo it I find it gets a little irritating (a little bit like Chrome by Azzaro).
Longevity is moderate, about 5 hours. Projection is pretty good. In hot weather it cuts through the heat and leaves you with a sharp but pleasant scent.
I own Essential and I do like it, even so, I hardly reach for it. It just doesn’t have the character of some of the other fresh summer scents.

smelled this and although its a total citrus fruity forgettable scent its well done

its a perfect summer and hot weather scent and can be worn by ANYONE but i prefer fierce, archaic, world extension, thallium sport over this one

very light perfume. Ideal for discreet and self-effacing men. The first note is just a very little aggressive but it's fresh and simple after

Great spring/summer scent. Perfect for a sunny or rainy day. This is a great scent to wear to work. Very light and inoffensive. Very green. This will be in my rotation for awhile.

Fresh and sporty. All very accurate. I imagine soccer fields when I smell this for some reason.

And even though it has that fresh scent, it has managed to not smell too much like a body wash. It's just clean.

Think active.

this alligator juice smells good and has a nice fresh feel to it. sorry that it is citrus based and everyone is kinda sick of the conventional citrus balanced with wood, spice.

Once I called it bland, but I was wrong. Can be cloying, and you don't have to spray too much to get this efect. It is long lasting, and it may has a sporty aura. But I just don't like the smell that I am almost sure is the tomato leaves.

I so love it because of the fine,light tomato leaf note in it:) Fresh,not synthetic, I think... Since that Joop! What about Adam is hardly available and discontinued it is the best for me with this note :) I want more fragrance with tomato leaf :)

Perfect for sunny days. Lacoste Essential changes according to temperature, just like a chameleon. Doesn't last that long on me though but i still love this cologne. Wish it could last a little longer. Smells like freshly cut grass. You should have this in your collection. Nice Fragrance.

I don't quite know exactly what, but this particular fragrance seems full of memory and brings back memories of old friends and relatives long gone.I spray it and float back several years and envision myself in a field of freshly cut grass at a big family picnic on Easter, hunting for eggs. Essential has by far been my most favorite cologne. Though the longevity could be a little longer. I can still remember by step grandmother saying "ooh, you smell good," every time i gave her a hug. I first got it in a sample along with another Lacoste sample for women which i gave to her. I like how it begins with a spicy citrus tone and retains that refreshing citrus all the way to the end, ending on a sandalwood (i think) base. This is a summer scent i would think, but is enjoyable all year round.

I love the top notes (tomato leaves + citrus). I'm not very fond of the peppery spice in the middle notes though. Longevity is below average (below 4 hours). Sillage is personal. Great for office wear. Yup, I can detect the sourness if I over applied this scent. Frankly, pepper is not my favourite notes.

LACOSTE ESSENTIAL is the male signature fragrance from Lacoste. Designed for today's modern man, ESSENTIAL is a light, easy-to-wear frragrance incorporating Lacoste's unique time releasing technology so the scent can be reanimated on the skin long after the first time it is sprayed.
This masculine scent possesses a blend of tomato leaves, citrus, fruit and watery for the top notes. The middle notes include black pepper and florals. Finishing off with patchouli and sandalwood.
it's a citrus fruity scent for men.
