    Default Review of: Monsieur Lanvin Lavande Aftershave

    I bought this more out of curiosity, and a sense of completion rather than anything else. Since I already have Monsieur Lanvin, Monsieur Lanvin Vetyver (original formula), and Monsieur Lanvin Figaro, I wanted to complete the set. I was really looking for Monsieur Lanvin Lavande EDT, but thats very hard to find. The aftershave is hard to find also, but I grabbed it.

    Its rather a disappointment, actually. I've never really smelled lavender, but I can't smell anything sweet. Rather, it smells kind of bitter. I don't think its turned, but this is not a comfortable smell to me. It smells more bitter than vetiver, and I've smelled Monsieur Lanvin Vetyver, which smells almost exactly like the original formula of Guerlain Vetiver. I enjoy the smell of vetiver, but this Monsieur Lanvin Lavande smells rather rank and bitter to me. Thumbs down.

    Lavender does not smell sweet.

    Lavender is in the mint family and has a somewhat herbaceous and medicinal fragrance.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    Thanks, Simon Moon. Then, I suppose that this is real, unadulterated lavender.
