I got a free sample of lacoste challenge in the mail and my husband loved the smell of it. It's not too overpowering and is a very simple smell, which is the kind of cologne we like. So he requested that I would buy a full bottle (oh, that's why they send out samples!) I got it for him for Christmas (you can find great prices online). When we first opened the package I thought "great, they give it a huge cap so you think you're getting more than you really get." So I was pleasantly surprised when my husband took off the cap, and there was more cologne that I had originally thought. I felt like we got a good price for it after seeing the size. It isn't as strong as I remember the sample being, but it has a nice smell and my husband really likes it. It isn't overpowering either, which is good since I am pretty sensitive to some smells. Overall, I'm happy with the price and my husband is happy with his cologne!
