    I like Gris Clair too. I also tried a L'Occitane lavender fragrance that I liked; I think was called VOP Lavender? I'm not sure of the name, but it smelled very nice.

    Right there with you on this, Strollyourlobster. Three classic scents but the Nicolai is the one I turn to most often.

    ++ for Gris Clair, which seems to work in serious heat and humidity, and Taste of Heaven, which is perfect for a luxe black tie sort of events altho I am beginning to get a little wary of it's tenacious, (verging on eternal), relentlessness . . .

    My fav is Brin de Reglisse though. It's clean and streamlined - basically just lavender, black licorice and hay (lots of coumarin).

    I'll +1 to Gris Clair, can't wait for a larger decant of that stuff.

    C&S O&C - I found the mint opening a little too overwhelming for my tastes, interesting, but would I wear it... I'm not so sure.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Caron 3rd Man for taking Pour un Homme's basic elements and making a more interesting frag out of it. Also, L'Occitan gets a lot wearing when autumn rolls around.

    I don't mean to derail the thread, but can someone recommend a fresher lavender? I don't really care for the super sweet and/or smoky variety. While I do like A Taste of Heaven and the like, it strikes me as something which I would wear very infrequently.

    mtg, I think Oxford and Cambridge is what you are looking for. It's very fresh with the herbal lavender, mint, and rosemary that make up the opening and early heart. Later, it segues into a quiet and restrained, and very natural oakmossy drydown that is soft and a bit salty, and still has hints of lavender (a lavender absolute, I presume - sweeter and more floral and coumarinic than normal lavender). Oakmoss is listed in the ingredients, and its easy to tell that there is a lot of the natural variety in here.

    AdP Blu Mediterraneo Cipresso di Toscana is another very fresh and natural scent with a pretty big lavendar note.

    I find both of the above scents to be fresh, natural, and they both have a healing quality that I've rarely found in any other scent.

    Try the easy-to-find Lavender Water by Crabtree & Evelyn and/or the hard-to-find Fourreau Noir by Serge Lutens.

    Thanks to both of you guys Mike and SOS. I lost my sample of O&C, and unfortunately didn't give it enough time when I had it, because the mentholated topnotes scared me off. I'll look in to reacquiring a sample, and also try out the C&E and SL scent Mike recommended. Thanks guys.
