You should really try this one, if you haven't, because opinions on it are somewhat divided. I personally think it's a perfect gentlemen's lavender and far superior to what is now sold as Caron pour un homme - certainly in terms of the lavender quality, but I also prefer the composition. I fancy it with a classic English country suit - it does emphasize the herbal, masculine side of the lavender and has that "British" feel about it with the barbershoppy clove. I probably dont wear it as often as I should because I like Arôme 3 by d'Orsay even better. Easily the best perfume from that line, if you ask me. Haute Provence by de Nicoclai is a softer, but equally satisfying taked on lavender and even if it's hard to find, you should ast least sample Patou pour homme privé once in your perfumista lifetime. That's getting way beyond plain lavender, but that opening is the Platonic essence of the purple herb.
