Can't believe I didn't review this before. A versatile, somewhat sporty scent, but in a crisp, outdoors fashion, rather than a ridiculously sweet or aquatic way. I remember it as good for work - fresh, but long-lasting. I'll have to try it again for old times' sake. A very solid purchase for the price. Flankers generally worth avoiding, if only to save on confusion.
Smelled this one today out of curiosity. It isn't a complete disaster but it is by far the worst scent I've smelled from Lacoste. It immediately reminded me of Davidoff's Silver Shadow with a hint of Armani Code. A warm, orangy, synthetic and far from modern scent. It's sweet in a strange, powdery way and more suitable for men in their 40s in my opinion, just like Silver Shadow.
No idea if it's true, but two saleswomen at two different stores told me that Lacoste fragrances aren't selling well, especially since P&G and that there will be less and less Lacoste fragrances until the brand vanishes from this market. I hope not, because I really like what they did with the L.12.12 series.
