In 1933, the first Lacoste brand name logo was stitched on the front of a garment and was inspired by Rene Lacoste's love of the strength of the crocodile.

Each Lacoste fragrance is distinct but still maintains a brand image, of strength, wearability and creativity and as such is an integral part of the Lacoste brand.

The success of their collaboration led to new developments with the famous perfumers of the 1920's and the 1930's: Roger & Gallet, Houbigant, Molyneux, d'Orsay, Molinard, Worth and many others. However, Rene Lalique remained faithful to the philosophy of the Art Nouveau movement, aiming to balance the needs of Art and Industry and created his own perfume range as homage to himself and his own ideals.

This is the extract or extrait of a fragrance and represents the scent in its purest form. This often creates a smooth and round texture, which is hard to achieve with the dilution represented in the other concentrations of fragrance.
Eau de Parfum or EDP is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. Eau de Parfum contains between seven to fourteen per cent of fragrance oils and perfume elixirs and is the second strongest, and longest lasting means of wearing a fine fragrance.
Eau de Toilette or EDT is fast becoming the most common means of wearing a fragrance or perfume. EDT’s are not as highly concentrated in oils and elixirs as an EDP or Perfume would be and contain one to three per cent of fragrance oils. This impacts the ability of the fragrance to last and around eighty percent of the oils in an EDT fragrance will evaporate within three hours of application.
Eau de Cologne’s or EDC’s were first popularised by Napoleon. These fragrances are often constructed in a different manner to the traditional French Model and are formulated in one single burst. As a result of this process, EDC’s or Eau de Colognes last the least amount of time on the skin and can dissolve within a couple of hours. EDC’s should be worn as a invigorating spray.
