Lacoste Challenge Cologne by Lacoste, The thrill of competition sets the mood for the French sportswear company Lacoste's 2009 release of Lacoste Challenge cologne for men. To the winner goes the spoils, and this winning combination of citrus, light floral and wood takes all. Exhilarating citrus top notes of tangerine, Amalfi Lemon and bergamot ignite this zesty blend with a bracing jolt. The heart is soft and inviting with florals of lavender and violet leaf enticed with a slight tickle of ginger. The bottom is firm with roots of ebony and teak wood settling deep into the earth. With modest longevity and silage, the fragrance draws attention without trying too hard.
