    Default Lavender

    Hey,

    This may sound a little bit weird since I have about 20ml of Yardley English Lavender left, but I'm already worried about it finishing. I love Lavender. I think it's perfect for both summer and winter. it has this wonderful soothing scent. Unfortunately I've never really noticed it before I further delved into scents and fragrances. Most houses nowadays seem to dish out the usual synthetic rubbish, which is not so easy on the nose and which at times stinks. I love Yardley's "English Lavender" - however Yardley is not very esy to find round here

    I was wondering whether anyone could recommend more lavender-based scents (preferable non-niche since it's easier for me to get).

    Thanks!

    Shifts beat me to it - I was going to say this. Lovely and very affordable stuff. I wore some before bed last night, and floated away comfortably with whiffs of this wonderful and very natural lavender note. I will also mention that Lavender Water features a very sturdy musk note, under the lavender. It's quite unmistakeable (even to my nose, and I'm anosmic to certain musks) and I think it supports the lavender note quite nicely, but if you hate musk then steer clear of this.

    Another great lavender (not quite as affordable): Gris Clair by Serge Lutens

    Two lavender fragrances that I have tried and are really great for intense lavender purity.

    Encens Lavande by Serge Lutens - impossible to find in the US but can be ordered in Europe.
    Czech and Speake, Oxford & Cambridge - nice very pure almost medicinal lavender.

    Look out javagreen we're batting 100 today. The first thing that came to my mind was my favorite lavender, Fougere Bengale - a boozy spiced up lavender. The other is Cadley Island, which is a nice, nice lavender, but too boring for me.

    I must admit I have not yet tried Oxford & Cambridge, but the best masculine lavender I know is Creeds Royal Scottish.
    Caldey is great value for money if you want a straight version.
    For a soft lavender, de Nicolai's Haute Provence is a good one, and I just reviewed the beautiful Ulysse by Ligne St. Barth. For lavender, looking for oils or dilutions at organic/health stores can be very rewarding, there are many small producers who make charming stuff.

    Unfortunately I don't know many non-niche lavenders. Caron Pour un Homme would be closest I think, very nice blend with vanilla, a bit more on the herbal side. i Profumi di Firenze Terra di Siena is another nice lavender vanilla, somewhat more feminine, perhaps a bit minty (?) - smells just like those Lavender Vanilla dryer sheets.

    Encens et Lavande (Paris exclusive) and Gris Clair (export) are both superb. E&L is just what it says; reminds me strongly of church (not least because I've taken to wearing it there, because it's so meditative and appropriate). Gris Clair is a smooth, supple lavender, slightly sweet due to the tonka bean, and very much puts me in mind of light grey clouds and incense ashes.

    OK, I can't believe I'm pushing a Serge Lutens frag, since that's a house I generally think is over-rated and overpriced, but Gris Clair is by far my favorite lavender. I know the request was for non-niche, but if lavender is really your thing, you should get the best. I also agree with others about the quality of the Creed one and Caron's offerings, but my (distant) second choice would be Lorenzo Villoresi's Wild Lavender, which is not available in the US, but is easily and inexpensively importable from The Perfume Shoppe in Canada online. (I very much love the LV Vetiver, which has already been recommended by someone else, but it's not a strongly lavender scent the way the other ones we're discussing are.)

    What a cool thread! I love the smell of lavender as well.

    I recently bought Cool Water [and am wearing it now] because of the lavender. Smells great!

    Have you tried Perry Ellis Reserve? That's a great lavender-based frag, with some underlying musk and woods. But the lavender is very prominent and manages to remain masculine. I love the stuff. When it runs out, I'm buying a bigger bottle than my little 1oz.

    I second this...Lavender essential oil is very affordable and widely available because it is one of the most popular oils for aromatherapy and natural skin remedies (eucalyptus and tea tree are two others).

    Lavender essential oil can be used full strength on the skin by most people, and if the oil is a high quality one, it will smell great. The only other oil that can be used full strength is Tea Tree, but it smells very medicinal, so it is not as aesthetically pleasing to wear as a scent.

    In addition, lavender bath and body products are great--L'Occitane and Mistral have wonderful lavender scented soaps, lotions, etc. I do not like the Crabtree & Evelyn lavender products as much as L'O and Mistral as it smells a bit more synthetic to me.

    I think this is a very sensible way to go.

    Lavender essential oils are much more rounded as fragrances than some perfumes are. I notice there have been some recommendations for Pour Un Homme by Caron. I sold my bottle of this because I couldn't live with the violent assault on the nostrils which came from what I feel is an overly harsh and astringent lavender opening (plus I find the vanilla ending sickly sweet).

    Thanks! I've got samples of LV's Vetiver and Wild Lavender - so I shall be trying those. I'll also try and get samples/decants of the other recommended scents. I'm starting to think that you can never have too much lavender.

    The Caldey Island Lavender sounds fantastic too and I have a feeling this is something I'd usually go for.

    The idea of natural essential oils is also something I'd try. Sometimes there's nothing better than the real thing - undiluted and pure.

    It may be of interest for you to know that Yardley's English Lavender is sold fairly cheaply down here in Australia in just about every chemist shop for about A$20 for a 100ml bottle, and then often is on sale for only $12 a bottle. It's a more unisex scent than most similar lavenders - my wife thinks it's more feminine than masculine.

    Sharper, more masculine lavenders in the same raw style as the Yardley's one include Atkinson's English Lavender and the more expensive Aqua Di Parma Lavenda Tonica.

    My favourite designer lavender scents, which are more refined/less raw than the above three, are Lanvin L'Homme and Azzaro Pure Lavender (but it's not really pure lavender).

    HDS, I also get that "nostril searing" from Caron pour un Homme. However, think it is a genetic abnormality--what I say smells like a sharp ammonia, others cannot detect!

    For a non-violent version of a very similar scent (i.e., lavender vanilla), By Killian A Taste of Heaven is great, although very expensive. And, there is always one of my favorites--Jicky.

    I don't know why, but we have more Yardley stuff in Chemist shops down here, than what Yardley have on their British website. From my other postings, it became obvious that they're not commonly available in the US either.

    As I said, it's often on sale - I bought big 250ml splash bottles of Yardley's Sandawood and Yardley's English Fine Cologne for $13 each. A 100ml spray bottle of Imperial Vetiver for $10, and seven or eight 50ml tester bottles of English Lavender for $2 each. I've given most of these away as presents, but have a bottle of the lavender permanently in my car.

    Wow 250ml of both Sandalwood and English Fine Cologne?! I actually haven't heard of any of these fragrances but they sound really nice. For some strange reason I really like Yardley's range.

    Their website isn't very helpful. It only lists part of their range.

    "Caron pour un Homme" by Caron if you want an inexpensive full fragrance (my current favorite fragrance!)
    "Caldey Island" if you want a holographic lavender (I do understand the musk - reminds me of a traditional citrus cologne, but with lavender rather than citrus)
    "Taste of Heaven" by Kilian if you want a very expensive smelling fragrance that is like a rich relation to Caron's offering, or if you find Caron too astringent!
    "Jicky" by Guerlain if you like Civet with your Lavender
    "Hypnose Homme" if you want a (well done) synthetic lavender
    Royal Scottish Lavender" by Creed if you want Creed's take on Lavender

    If you want lavender, and lavender only, Caldey Islands Lavender Water by monk bros is the one to go.

    For best incensy lavender: Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande. Czech & Speake Frankincense and Myrrh is a close second (clear lavender top, with a base of high quality incense).

    For best old world ambery lavender: Creed Royal Scottish Lavender. Others in this category: Caron pour homme (simpler, unbalanced to my nose: too heavy on vanilla) and Villoresi Wild Lavender (similar to Royal Scottish Lavender in its use of clove and vanilla, but spicier and less coherent with a less striking lavender note).

    For best butt-crack lavender : Guerlain Jicky, for its expert use of civet under a lavender top.

    if you are lookin for somethin inexpensive...KL Photo could be an option...the benzoin content makes it a lil darker, but the intial blast to midnotes maybe just what you were looking for....

    also, Pure Lavande by Azzaro, its true to the smell of lavender, but may come across a lil awkward and synthetic...but this one grows on you with each wear...not one of my fav's but definteily for anyone who appreciates lavender. a misrepresented scent and an underrrated one too.

    I guess my obsession with Lavender has got to stop! I just got a DVD called "Ladies in Lavender" (probably the Lavender has nothing to do with the story line) and I've decided to get a whole range of Lavender soaps, shower gels, bath foams, talc and drawer liners. It's just the most relaxing and (I dare say) fresh scents around!
