Lacoste Elegance Cologne by Lacoste, An oriental-inspired scent, Lacoste Elegance by Lacoste was first released in 2007. Its top notes open with juniper, thyme and peppermint, which are balanced with warm, spicy notes of black pepper, nutmeg and cardamom. Masculine base notes include musk, sandalwood, amber and chocolate. This unique fragrance is aromatic, yet subtle enough to make it appropriate for day or nighttime wear. It packs enough staying power to last for several hours without overwhelming. The cologne is packaged within a minimalist glass bottle design and navy blue box.
