Today it's:Norfolk Lavender Cologne
by Norfolk Lavender (vintage juice)
As I posted before, this one was not love-at-first-sniff. I like many lavenders and even the basic ones usually have something to offer that I can enjoy, but this one has a very disruptive, brutal musk note that comes charging out of the gate, right away. The lavender is basic, nothing special, non-medicinal...it doesn't smell synthetic (thank goodness) but it's not stellar quality either. Today, I really doused myself with it, to see if it wore any better. As a result the room where I sprayed it (my office) was saturated with smell (oops). It's been an hour and while this is nice, it's nothing to get excited over.
Oh well, I have another vintage lavender (Crabtree & Evelyn) I bought from eBay this week, on it's way.
