Not bad per se, but this has nothing to do with lavender. This is a really mellow, smooth, even sort of pleasant blend of anisic-aldehydic musk and vanilla; soapy, sweet, ambery, and with that peculiar sort of "dusty gassiness" provided by aldehydes or something like that. I think I also smell some really light and subtle hint of something rubbery, like a really synthetic imitation leather note. Shortly a "grey" synthetic scent which as other reviewers said, probably would work better as a room spray than on skin. Nothing green, or aromatic, or floral as one may expect. But I get Azzaro's clumsy attempt to connect this to "pure lavender", as it has indeed some "laundry" feel thanks to musk (which also lavender may have, as a minor side nuance). I wouldn't consider this a bad scent though, as it is decent and crisp overall and almost smells like something Comme des Garçons or Andrea Maack could have come up with; it's just completely wrong for that name.
i enjoy the opening of good quality of soft lavender , heaven of lavender with soft touch , the dry down is mostly vanilla & Tonka beans , just elegant and casual perfume
is like Minotaure but more Lavander (of course) and less citrus... Pure Lavender is more sophisticated and Minotaure more casual
Why, o why have you been discontinued...
I agree with WavingWheat. This is the only fragrance I have ever worn that feels like a second skin. The fragrance starts out quite floral, but turns into a wonderful, warm, smoky lavender musk that usually makes it impossible for me to get through the day without coworkers, cashiers or cabbies sniffing and asking whether I am wearing cologne.
When I say yes, their next question is whether I would mind if they smell me.
And I always let them, because I am just generous that way.
Pros: Long-lasting, warm, complex scent
Cons: I can't get any more"
There is one 'Pure Lavender' and that is Caron 'Pour Un Homme': this is his dull chemical brother in law.
