Esprit de Lavande, a discontinued Penhaligon's offering, is a simplistic lavender-laden gem among so many imposters. EdL is clear, concise, and of good quality though it is nothing more than a simple lavender water with an herbal, floral, and tonka component. Per its namesake, it just this, a spirit or tincture of the lavender flower. It is a bit dated, old-fashioned, and out of date, but nice. The tonka and herbs are a bit strong and the fragrance overall is a bit thin though quite vintage. Try it if you get a chance.

"Esprit De Lavande is classified as a green herbal fougere unisex scent. Enjoyed by men and women.
Fragrance Notes: A blend of lavender, basil, canella (white cinnamon bark), black pepper, Clary sage, oak moss, musk, moss and vanilla."

Aromatic and dry lavender... obviously. This is a green-herbal lavender scent, and the opening is very good. Lavandula has basil, canella (white cinnamon bark) and black pepper, and since EdL has a spicy-wood aspect perhaps they are here too. Perhaps also clary sage which is a musky green scent. Actually, this becomes more green-herbal and less lavender as it develops. Then oakmoss and musk emerge, with a bit of vanilla. This has a fougere-style ending. Nice, quite old-school. The musky moss dry-down gives it a Victorian aura, charming but a bit dated. And it is discontinued.
