Lacoste L!VE Eau de Toilette Review

Lacoste L!VE Eau de Toilette Review

If you’re a fan of Lacoste L!VE Eau de Toilette or are keen to try it out, then you’re in the perfect place. If you’re new to the fragrance, I’ll tell you all about it here. Or, if you’re a loyal fan who wears Lacoste Live as their signature scent, then I’ll be filling you in on the changes it went through for 2022. Read on to find out more with my review…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

If you wear Live by Lacoste, you might notice it looks different. Yes, it got a new design for 2022, but the scent itself is exactly the same as the previous version.

But what does it smell like, exactly? It packs an energetic punch from the very first spritz. It’s a zesty and tart blend of fresh lime, balanced by a layer of warmth provided by saffron. The heart creates a dew-drenched leafy tone as it pairs together green leaves with fresh aquatic notes. Finally, the fragrance settles into a soft, creamy warm woody tone as sandalwood and guaiac wood take on a new dimension as the unique, instantly recognised the scent of liquorice joins the mix.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Live Eau de Toilette is made for the creative individual who chooses their fashion look with authenticity; they’re confident in who they are, and their style reflects that.


You Will Love This If…

If you love tangy, vibrant fragrances that burst with energy to begin with but settle into warm, sensual, woody tones as the day wears on, then you’ll love this.

If you already love this scent, I hope that – like me – you’ll love the new design even more so.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Live has a similar energetic citrus tone and warm woody base as Only The Brave by Diesel – thanks to the saffron, you get a touch of warmth a lot sooner here.


Is Lacoste Live Unisex?

Technically, it’s marketed as a fragrance for men, and it does have a typically masculine ‘aftershave’ vibe, but it’s definitely got universal appeal, thanks to its fresh, vibrant tones. And of course, you should wear a fragrance because you like it – not because it’s marketed towards you.


What’s The Longevity Like?

This is certainly long-lasting for an Eau de Toilette. It lasted around six hours on my skin.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

It’s a new bottle following a 2022 update. The old block style is gone, and it’s been replaced by a slim, clear glass bottle that allows you to peek at the blue-tinted liquid within. There aren’t any size variations for Lacoste L!VE Eau de Toilette anymore – Lacoste has streamlined, so they’re just offering the one 75ml version going forward. Of course, the instantly recognisable Lacoste croc still gets a feature, though.
