Lacoste did it again. They were able to convince me once again to buy their perfume. This time, I bought their newest fragrance – Lacoste Essential Sport.
Lacoste Essential Sport is a variant of Lacoste Essential which I also mentioned in PGG’s Four Picks on Men’s Scents back in 2009. I now have both fragrances and they both smell great. I initially thought that the two variants would smell almost the same but I was wrong. They smell differently. I realized that Lacoste Essential Sport has a stronger masculine scent than the original Lacoste Essential which has a “citrusy” smell. If you ask me which I like better, I won’t be able to decide because I love them both. But for now, I think I’m liking the “Sport” variant more due to the more manly scent that women like.
Lacoste Essential Sport was officially released last March 2010. According to the salesman of SM Department Store, this fragrance came out locally less than a month ago and SM was one of the first to carry the brand.
The perfume is available in 75 mL and 125 mL. I bought the bigger 125 mL because Lacoste is currently giving away a free messenger bag with every purchase of the big bottle.
Aside from the bag, I also received a free pocket-size perfume applicator which I can refill and take to a party so that it wouldn’t be such a hassle carrying the big bottle around. I guess I got myself a pretty good deal if you ask me.
One last thing. In case you are still wondering – yes, the smell of Lacoste Essential Sport is worth it!

The biggest question is… how much?
In your opinion, is it better than the original Lacoste Essential?
yep oks smell ne’to.. though pinili ko pa rin ang kenneth cole- black :p
wala pa rin kupas ang loyalty ko for bvlgari! 🙂
Yes.. How much?! i mean there are alot of nice perfumes/scents out there for men.. that’s not very expensive… 😉
Kilo/Dhon – 75 mL costs 3K+ while the 125 mL costs 4,100 Pesos
Adrian – it’s hard to compare them. They are both good. The difference is that Essential Sport has a more masculine scent. You can request for a sample at department stores so that you can find out which one is best for you.
Dumont/angelo – ok din bulgari. di ko masyado matandaan amoy ng kenneth cole. hehe
which sm branch did you bought that from?? gusto ko yung libreng bag and vial, baka walang ganyan sa ibang branch.
bosss – got this at SM Makati. Try to check if they still have the bag and the perfume applicator. 😉
Got my Lacoste Essential Sports din. 🙂 bango!
caloy – wow nice. kailan ka bumili?

Believe me, i tried everything but i keep going back to issey miyake, lately, i find the new D&G mens acceptable to my liking but after a few days, i’m back to my old issey miyake, nothing beats it!

Chris try mo sa cash and carry makati. Almost 50% less ang prize compared sa mall ng mga perfume but they don’t issue O.R…. 🙂
Jerry sige I’ll check. Bakit mura sa kanila?
I’m curious to find out what blog system you have been
using? I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I’d like to
find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?

Bryan – Bulgari Aqua is awesome. That’s my brother’s favorite.
