Eau de Lacoste L.12.12. Magnetic

1/27/2017


Never underestimate the power of perfume as it does show that extra effort and it never goes unnoticed. When smelling good comes to mind, these two fragrances have been such a discovery. Husband and I have both used Lacoste fragrances in the past. I've bought him Lacoste Essential as a birthday gift while I used to wear Lacoste Inspiration (a gift from my dad). When these two intensely, deeply colored bottles came into our hands, we really had no idea what to expect. The names suggested an impressionable pair of scents - and so they were.

Lacoste L.12.12. Magnetic for Her EDP is very unique in the way how fruity, even tropical notes were combined into an alluring and adult perfume. Imagine mango, clementine and orange in the opening - fruity yet suprisingly warm. No zest, no lemony freshness - just juicy, sweet and feminine opening. Then you have heliotrope, jasmine, rose and violet leaf in the heart of this fragrance. Heliotrope is dominant and gives an alluring and creamy quality. Finally, vanilla, tonka bean and patchouli are a solid base. 

This fragrance has an incredible lasting power - it stays on my skin, hair and clothes for over a day. I can feel it tomorrow from the ends of my hair and it's such a yummy, good quality and vibrant perfume - as is the magnetic purple bottle it comes in. Bottles are great made, heavy glass, great spritzer with medium strong mist and the cute Lacoste crocodile on the front is such a nice detail. Suitable for all seasons and places.

Lacoste L.12.12. Magnetic for Him EDT is quite different as this isn't a linear fragrance - it evolves and shifts from one character to the other throughout the day. The vibrant blue bottle suits it so well as it appears strong, solid and traditional - but not quite. This is one of the more unique fragrances and I'd describe it as aquatic at first but after fifteen minutes, I get a woodsy-musky goodness radiating from the skin. 

It opens with notes of juniper, bamboo and artemisia. I thought it also has cucumber or lotus flower as the aquatic vibe shines through but the heart of tea, violet and geranium takes over quickly making it more of a tea/geranium combination. Base consists of patchouli, vetiver and amber whilst patchouli here is faint and you certainly get the vetiver and amber close to the skin. At first, it seems like a rebel, something a non-tradiotionalist would wear but after only ten minutes it does transform into a gorgeous manly scent. Never cloying and quite appropriate for daywear and the gym. 

  • Ne potcjenjujte moć parfema jer njegovo prisustvo zaista pokazuje da je uložen dodatni trud, što nikada ne prolazi neprimjećeno. Kada su dobri mirisi u pitanju, parfemi koje vidite su definitivno zaslužili svoje mjesto na blogu. Suprug i ja smo par godina unazad koristili Lacoste parfeme. Ja sam mu za rođendan poklonila Lacoste Essential dok sam ja nosila Lacoste Inspiration (bio je poklon od tate). A kada su nam ove dvije intenzivnno obojene staklene bočice zazveckale u rukama, nismo znali šta da očekujemo. Prvi dojam je da su ovo parfemi koji ostavljaju utisak - i to su svakako uradili.
  • Lacoste L.12.12. Magnetic parfem za žene (25 ml | 86,05 KM, 45 ml | 115,40 KM, 80 ml | 156,45 KM) je unikatan zbog načina kako su voćne, tropske note usklađene sa ostatkom parfemske piramide. Rezultat je privlačan, zreo parfem. Otvara se notama manga, klementine i narandže - slatko, bez primjesa svježine. Dosta "sočna" kombinacija mirisnih nota na koju se nastavljaju heliotrop, jasmin, ruža i cvijet ljubičice u srcu parfema. Ovdje je heliotrop dominantan (blago karamelno/vanilasta nota) što parfem čini kremastim i maznim. U bazi mirisne piramide se nalaze vanilija, mahune tonke i pačuli. 
  • Trajnost ovog parfema je nevjerovatna - na mojoj koži, kosi i odjeći se zadržava duže od 24h. Sutra ujutro ga osjetim sa krajeva kose i oduševljena sam koliko je ovo jedan kvalitetan parfem, pun karaktera - oslikanog u intenzivno ljubičastoj bočici. Maleni Lacoste krokodil sa prednje strane bočice je simpatičan detalj. Ovo je parfem za sva godišnja doba i sve prilike.
  • Lacoste L.12.12. Magnetic toaletna voda za muškarce (50 ml | 107,55 KM, 100 ml | 146,70 KM) uopšte nije linearan miris nego se mijenja kako vrijeme odmiče - kao da mu se mijenja karakter. Vibratno plava bočica mu uistinu odgovara jer je ova toaletna voda više nego solidna, snažna i tradicionalna. Ali možda i nije? Originalnost leži u akvatičnom otvaranju da bi nakon petnaestak minuta sa kože isijavale drveno-začinske note. 
  • U otvaranju su prisutne note kleke, bambusa i artemizije. Meni se učinilo da osjetim lotos ili krastavac, pošto ima neki akvatični prizvuk koji se lijepo nadovezuje na note čaja, ljubičice i geranijuma (leže u srcu ovog mirisa). Geranijum se jasno osjeti i sjajno se slaže sa mirisom čaja. U bazi se nalaze pačuli, vetiver i ambra s tim da je pačuli dosta blag. Uz kožu i u posljednjim trenucima ostaju vetiver i ambra. Pomalo buntovnički, miris za nekog ko nije tradiocionalan tip da bi se priča promjenila a nosnice ispuni divan, muževni parfem, Nikada naporan, nikada težak, dugotrajan i pogodan u svakoj prilici (čak i za odlazak u teretanu).
