By nature I’m a fairly low-key, modest kind of person but indulge me for a moment if I blow my own trumpet briefly to tell you I was thrilled to win 1st prize in a competition at the Lacoste ‘Eau de Lacoste L.12.12’ fragrance launch last Friday.
Part of the swanky launch event for the new Lacoste men’s fragrances, the competition asked people to come up with their interpretation of ‘Unconventional Chic’ using a classic Lacoste L.12. 12 Polo Shirt. You can see my ‘unconventional’ approach to the competition here.
Anyway, a huge thank you to everyone who cast their votes for my entry on the night – it was an excellent evening (obviously!) and I can’t wait to raid the Lacoste shop with the vouchers I won as my prize.
The evening was also a great opportunity for everyone to sample the three fragrances – Blanc, Bleu and Vert. Blanc is the signature fragrance but of the three Vert – with its fresh, woody greenness and outdoorsy freshness – is my own favourite, though there’s something there to suit every man’s tastes – whether he’s unconventional or not.
PS. The cake you see was part of the goodie bag. And welcome it was too – especially for soaking up all the fancy cocktails I sank on the night!
