    I think Gris Clair has been getting quite a bit of notice as well. A unisex smokey lavender scent.

    L'Occitan is powerful and smoky, lavender with a hint of wood smoke.
    Two simple, dry lavender scents are Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Water and Geo. F. Trumper Lavender.
    And I must mention Czech & Speake's Oxford and Cambridge. Very nice stuff.

    I just wish it didn't have that minty (camphorous) note in it.

    I like that minty note! I'll have to add my voice to the many for Gris Clair instead, though. It's my favorite in this category. I really don't care for Caron PH.

    I'll have to go along with the Pour un Homme de Caron recommendation.

    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

    As an afterthought on a less traditional lavender, what of Parfum d'Empire's Fougere Bengale? (Copied from Lucky Scent)

    "Inspired by the Bengal part of the Ancient Mongol Empire, the warm and animalic notes of Fougere Bengale recount the famous Bengalese tiger hunts in the heart of the Assam jungle where the humidity is permeated with the odor of hay. With Fougere Bengale, Parfum d’Empire also reinterpret the fougere genre by adding to the traditional blend of lavender, tonka bean and oakmoss a sensual and honeyed tobacco accord and a mouthwatering gingerbread note. Is it a fougere? For sure! But the sophisticated, subtle gourmand-ness adds a surprising and extremely enchanting twist to the classic composition. The fragrance opens with the freshness of lavender, so popular with the English dandies. Then, the dry warm notes of hay take us to Bengal, to the Assam tea plantations. The mild tobacco, a glimpse of the British officers’ cigarettes, mingles with the animalic scents of the Indian brushlands. Finally Fougere Bengale welcomes us to an oriental palace where the enigmatic patchouli, vanilla and tonka bean evoke silk and cashmere. This suave, mysterious scent with animal sensuality, a blend of traditional and modern, will be equally adored by lovers of the impeccably classic perfumes and the offbeat, unusual contemporary creations."

    Lavender, tarragon, patchouli, geranium, tobacco, tonka beans, vanilla

    For a more traditonal, the fougere Arome Trois by Parfums D'Orsay...(yes, I know...he was not a perfumer....)

    Oxford and Cambridge, by far, as it is the most natural smelling scent that isn't listed as all natural, that I've ever smelled.

    A blast of very natural, linalool heavy lavender, along with some camphor (rosemary) and a cool bite (menthol from the mint), over a warm and very rich, very natural oakmoss base. Simple and wonderful, and best of all, it truly has the aromatherapeutic qualities of the oils present in it (which can't be said for most lavender oriented scents out there).

    Roger Gallet Lavande Royale. Make sure you get a fresh bottle. The soap is among the best soaps I've ever tried, too. It's pure, fresh, straightforward. Just great stuff.
