Lacoste has clearly been spending time in the lab lately. But while most of the brand's selection of fragrances are all about florals, citrus, and grass, L.12.12. Red (named for the first generation Lacoste tennis shirt) is a dynamic departure, a woody and fruity concoction. It opens with powerful aromas of red roiboos tea, mandarin liqueur, and juicy mango. Then it turns spicy with notes of black pepper, ginger, and cardamom. The warm base follows with benzoin and acacia wood. "Unlike the other woody, spicy, or powdery scents on this list, Red is a youthful, sporty aroma perfect for casual wear," Harrison says. [$39 for 1 oz spray;]
