Hayden Christensen Loves A Lacoste Challenge

Hayden Christensen Loves A Lacoste Challenge

Check out these new pics of Hayden Christensen going for a backhand volley on the Lacoste tennis court in Geneva, Switzerland taken a few weeks ago.

The 28-year-old actor was featured in Lacoste’s ad for the brand’s latest fragrance, Lacoste Challenge. Check out the bottle below — it emulates the shape of a tennis racket handle!

Top Note – THE SERVE

The fragrance opens strongly with fresh and energetic notes of tangerine and lemon, augmented by a burst of aromatic lavender – one of the most classic ingredients in masculine perfumery – which works to sustain the citric zing of the top notes into the heart of the scent.

Middle Accord – THE VOLLEY

The energy of the middle accord is driven by spices including ginger, aptly representing René Lacoste’s formidable skills at the net, which he used sparingly to sting opponents when least expected, bringing an exciting kick to his overall game play.


Just as the legend was renowned for his stamina at the base line; so the base notes are powerful, steady and consistent. Precious rosewood brings a modern edge to the scent, teak has an almost antique quality that reinforces the distinguished heritage of the brand, and the blackness of ebony corresponds to the slick modern design of the flacon. Together they create a sustained strength, giving the fragrance its solid foundation.

    Wow he looks 38 not 28 and the whites look awful on him. I smelled the cologne it smells very feminine, like an old woman trapped in a cedar closet.

    So where’s Rachel? They were pressing out their marriage on Lacoste’s dime in Paris last month at the Open where these pics were taken.

    Seems that JJ has now stuped to advertising for D listed actors now. The cologne has been out in some places for awhile the smell is Ok but, compared to Versaci or Armani even DG there is nothing special about this. When there is bigger name actors like James Franco, John Rhys Meyers etc selling the bigger name cologne I see this one getting lost in the shuffle. Guessing LaCoste wants more press and HC isn’t willing to do it so this is what JJ and the rest are reduced to doing giving 6 week old pictures showing a man who looks more middle age then in his prime.


    He isn’t married to Bilson as of yet and if it happens well he can kiss his career away. Not that he has much of one anyway.

    He looks so good in the tennis whites. He was supposed to go to university on a tennis scholarship before going into acting. Looks like he was having fun in those pictures. Thanks JJ.

    Rachel must have taken the day off so we get to see old pictures of Hayden. I’m surprised that she wasn’t mentioned since she is a star here if nowhere else.

    HC is way too skinny. Smoking doesn’t help. This guy eats organic food but keeps smoking like hell.\

    His supposed girlfriend is so blah…..aren’t they any other cool chick in Canada near his farm?

    He should beef up a lill bit, get some meat on his bones, and bring back his sexy curls……….oh yeah quit smoking!
    He is aging badly and looks older than 28…..too bad cos I like this dude!

    Hate to tell you the cologne is already out in stores like Macy’s I don’t know why they said August but, in most bigger names places you can locate it. Take a trip to Nordstroms and Macy’s you’ll see it on the counter.

    Curious Says:

    shud have got a real tennis pro, loadsa really fit pros out there. Dunno why Lacoste wud want a d-lister to do the promo for their man scent. Most men prolly wont buy it coz HC dont have the right image and a lotta men think he’s a bit of a poofter. Lacoste have backed a loser with this one, me thunks.

    He kinda of has credibility. Rachel Bilson has none. I would sign a petition to get rid of any and all coverage of her! I saw one episode of
    O.C. and wanted to throw up. Her acting was beyond bad. Looks like she’s done nothing productive since then. So tell me… why is she treated like an A-list celebrity? Get her out of here! It’s enough already. I’m sure she already has a complex.

    I would sign a petition to turn off the comments in Rachel’s posts. Some people would need a support group to cope with that.
