To represent the serve, the fragrance opens with fresh and energetic notes of orange and lemon augmented by a burst of aromatic lavender.
The middle accord features precious rosewood, representing the delicate touch of the drop shots and lobs with Lacoste used at the net to wear out his opponents.
Finally, just as the legend was renowned for his stamina at the base line, so the solid woody base notes of teak and ebony are powerful, steady and consistent.

An inspired inventor, Rene Lacoste continually made innovative adjustments to his rackets to make them more efficient and easier to handle. In the 1920s, he shipped hundreds of rolls of sticking plaster from the US to wrap around the handle of his racket to improve the grip. The idea quickly caught on and soon became used throughout the sport. The Lacoste Challenge flacon is directly inspired by this remarkable innovation. Emulating the shape of a tennis racket handle, the solid glass bottle is encased in a lustrous black ‘soft touch’ grip emblazoned with the iconic Lacoste crocodile logo, while the juice is a bright, eye-catching yellow. The overall result is a striking, modern reinterpretation of the brand’s youthful, sportive image.
