Summary: It doesn't seem to fade like others have said. I do about 3 sprays and I can smell it still at the end of the day. Not sure what the other reviewers got, but mine seems just like what I sampled in the store.
Summary: I hear compliments all the time about this fragrance. It is not strong or overbearing. A very fresh scent that goes well in about every occasion. Whether you are indoors or outdoors, but it definitely is not a lingering smell and I highly doubt it offends anybody like some very strong scents that are out on the market these days.
Summary: I ordered the Lacoste Essential Sport directly from Amazon, which was also shipped by Amazon (not a third-party seller!). The box arrived and the plastic wrap around the box was already open on the bottom. I also noticed a second bar code sticker that had been stuck to the side of the box (under the plastic wrap!) that was obviously not part of the original packaging. Additionally, there was a long strip of the inside of the box which had been sloppily cut out.
