Game, set and match?
With the L.12.12 range, Lacoste serve up the perfect mixed double for summer
The worlds of fashion and perfumery have always been closely intertwined. Just as it is impossible to think of Chanel without recalling the iconic rose scent of Coco’s beloved Nº5, so too is Dior unthinkable without the semi-eponymous J’adore. It’s as if the world’s greatest tailors instinctively knew the value of engaging as many of the senses as possible in order to create visceral sensual stories around their brands.
It’s an honourable tradition that Lacoste nod to with this year’s release of two fresh, new summer fragrances from the L.12.12 collection. Inspired by the iconic polo shirt, created by René Lacoste in 1933, these ‘for him’ and ‘for her’ scents conjure warm summer days with strawberries and cream at Wimbledon.
Elegant and uninhibited L.12.12 Eau Fraiche Pour Lui is instantly recognisable from its sleek rounded bottle and light lime colouring. Emblazoned with the legendary green crocodile, the scent has a clean masculinity, highlighted by fresh limoncello over rich woody musks. Serving up an ace on or off the court in classic style.
The perfect partner for Lacoste’s mixed double, Pour Elle blends magnolia, lily and jasmine for a supremely feminine scent, underpinned with exotic Indonesian patchouli. All served up in a beautifully elegant opaque pink bottle, adorned with the classic champagne crocodile, this light floral perfume is game, set and match to Lacoste.
