Reviews of English Lavender

This is a very natural lavender with a hint of zest. No sweetness at all - just like squeezing a cedrat and natural lavender together. Slightly woody as it calms down but the lavender is always the star of the show.

I tried this as an alternative to l’Occitan thinking they’re both billed as more natural / herbal but they couldn’t be more different. L’Occitan is much better balanced and blended, richer and more complex - it does have a slightly astringent lavender opening but it mellows quickly, receding into the overall herbal accord. The other big difference is the bergamot in EL vs l’Occitan is more woodsy.

It’s not that EL is a bad fragrance - it’s just more of a freshy vibe, but there are fragrances that do that far better for me.

Am I smelling the same fragrance and everyone else? I get no lavender from this whatsoever. It's very green, bright, soapy, citrusy—almost a touch too fruity. It immediately reminded me of the first fragrances I tried, which were all vetivers (Jo Malone, Mugler and Creed).

That's not to say it isn't pleasant. It's very pleasant, and strong too—in the good way. Not overpowering, but very long lasting. It doesn't have much development, which is fine by me. The drydown is essentially a subtler version of the opening. I applied a couple of sprays to my arm to try it out, and that has lasted all day long.

Unforgettable: it was my father's lavender, a lot of years ago, but I used to wear it as well. A very sharp and fresh fragrance, a great classic, a real English lavender without compromises: if you're looking for a smooth kind of lavender, with some sweet drydown (like Caron's Pour un Homme, I mean), don't look for this. Here you'll find a well composed bouquet of lavender with a background of other herbs and citruses, for a very dry and clean aroma.

A stable in the wardrobe of many gentlemen and the unforgetable scent of my grandfather's brother, my grand-uncle Gino that for 27 years had lived his exotic life between Italy and Venezuela. I was an innocent child at time he came back with his grease on gray hairs, the white linen clothes and the herbal/aromatic English Lavender over. I catch similarities with several traditional Creed's creations and I see the association with the Royal Scottish Lavender that Naed Nitram previously underlined. The fragrance starts with a marvellous citrus-lavender aromatic accord to die for. The accord retains an herbal feel along the trip because of the addition of clary sage and rosemary. The latter is great with its bracing aroma of hight mountain. The evolution slides towards a mossy woody aroma with the smoked touch of seasoned tonka plus hints of fir resins. The outcome is light, woodsy and uncompromisingly virile and while being basically dry it tends to soften towards a sort of soapy muskiness despite the declared absence of balsams, vanilla or myrrh. Ethernal fragrance that many will never intend to pull apart.

Atkinsons English Lavender is exactly what is says: a dry, herbal, astringent, spicy English lavender that is far removed from the sweet vanilla/tonka syrup of Caron PUH. The opening is a fresh blast of lavender that is followed by a spicy heart of clary sage and clove backed up the resinous spice of rosewood. The base is a light tonka-moss-musk accord. Worlds drier than Caron and not as dirty as Oxford and Cambridge. English Lavender is very masculine and quite simple is comparison to more complex lavender fougeres like Arome 3 and Patou pour Homme Prive. I'd like to think of Atkinsons as a lavender dominated bay rum almost. The scarcity of Atkinsons products does not help their cause one bit! Try their Gold Medal Eau de Cologne if you can.

When I was pregnant I used to shower with a bar of a lavander soap. I tried to find the same clear relaxing and self aware scent. English Lavander is not only a clean scent but ends up with a woody drydown that makes a classical lavender something more distingushable and original. What I like about it is that can be layered on any other lavander product (soap, talc) adding to the mix an distinctive note. I feel good when I wear lavender but I am always afraid of givin an unsofisticate impression. This fear is minimised wiht English Lavender.
