Novak Djokovic Scent: 2 Colognes He Wears

World No. 1 in tennis, Novak Djokovic is the ambassador for French brand Lacoste. Lacoste started in 1933 and is one of the leading brands in the world.

He first teamed up with Lacoste back in 2017 an has extended his contract up to 2025. This deal is worth million of dollars.

But, despite all this success, Novak is a grounded family man who believes in the simplicity of life. So, here are the 2 colognes Novak Djokovic wears;

1)Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc Eau De Parfum For Him

Novak Djokovic wears L.12.12 Blanc Edition Eau de Parfum( for him), is a timeless classic that wins in both presentation and packaging. This fragrance captivates from the first spray.

The top notes feature Green Notes and Finger Lime, complemented by Eucalyptus and Cardamom in the middle, and anchored by Pine Tree and Cedar in the base.

The longevity isn’t pretty awful I’d say, you get a solid two-hour max. Despite the brief longevity, its refreshing scent effortlessly blends with bad smells of morning breath, sweat, and testosterone( yapp)

It really does the job, bringing in that tropical vibe with some fantastic added depth vibes. The inclusion of green notes (I’m a sucker for those) enhances the overall appeal.

Plus, it’s a safe bet for all warm weather occasions, just be mindful not to go overboard on the sprays. In a nutshell, it’s just fantastic-smelling stuff. I totally vouch for it!

2)The Soft Lawn Imaginary Authors ( Unisex)

Fragrance TypeAromatic Green
GenderWomen and Men
Launch Year2012, New Version 2021
PerfumerJosh Meyer

The second fragrance associated with Tennis is Soft Lawn Imaginary Authors. This fragrance has quiet a story and here is it’s story. Josh Meyer, the perfumer and founder of Soft Lawn, Imaginary Authors and an avid tennis enthusiast, crafted this cologne from his Wimbledon inspiration( quiet a genius if you ask me).

Reflecting on the genesis of Soft Lawn, Meyer shared that it all started with the vision of sitting at Wimbledon and enjoying cucumber sandwich.

That is where it all began from. But wait, did this cologne exist years back? Yes, Soft Lawn made its debut as part of Imaginary Author’s inaugural product release around a decade ago( 2012).

In a recent version update( 2021), Meyer retained the same notes and materials, ensuring a consistent scent experience.

Despite all these years, this fragrance remains a prominent and much-discussed scent within tennis sport industry. Meyer attributes its enduring popularity to the incorporation of fresh tennis ball .

If you love the smell of fresh tennis balls, you will love Soft Lawn Fragrance.

My Personal Experience: I was surprised by how little green it had. It’s incredibly light, floral, and refreshing. The sweet undertones of yellow florals stand out, and there’s a subtle hint of a “tennis ball” note that’s not too overbaring, lending a touch of rubberiness. I believe this could make for a delightful room fragrance.

A friend’s Experience: so my buddy snagged this cologne last year, and here’s the lowdown comparing the old and new ones.

Old one:

Kicks off with a hefty linden blossom blast—super green yet sweet yellow floral. Personally, it’s intoxicating, but not everyone’s cup of tea. Gradually melds into a mix of green ivy and damp laurel leaves. The background vibes? Picture beautiful deep moss and earthy vetiver. It captures the essence of a hot tennis evening at the local country club. Fantastic but a bit trickier for casual wear; shines better in formal settings compared to the new one”.

New one:

Opens with a cool grapefruit and linden blossom combo. Think cooling green, yellow floral, and bright citrus, perfect for a spring or summer morning. The freshness vibes extend to laurel, ivy, and laurel leaves, still the core of the fragrance. That unique tennis ball accord is there, but less overpowering with the added freshness. In a nutshell, it’s super fresh, effortlessly unique, and evocative. Same scene as the old one but more romantically portrayed with a morning-fresh twist, making it a daily go-to”.

Both pack a decent punch in projection and performance on my skin. Nearly finished both bottles, and it’s a bummer they don’t stock the old formula anymore. In short, both are absolute gems.
