    I prefer slightly denser lavender compositions instead of lavender waters like Caldey Island..

    C&S Oxford & Cambridge is top notch stuff...a dense, moist lavender creation with a base which feels alive.

    Another fragrance which is must on these 'lavender' lists is Creeds Royal Scottish Lavender for its slick lavender, amber and spices accord...its like a superior, better balanced, and higher quality version of the uber powdery somewhat monotone Caron pour homme.

    Antiheros by Etat Libre d'Orange is a fresh, clean lavender that is very reminiscent of cheap lavender soap, definitely worth a try, it's one of my personal favourite scents.

    I might get ridiculed for this, but I'm a huge fan of lavender and I really, really enjoy Azzaro's Pure Lavender. There's not much to it, and I do realize it's obviously not "pure lavender," but it's a lovely fragrance none-the-less. It's one of those frags I like to spray on my sheets for it's aromatherapy-like traits. And cheap too!

    No ridicule from me. Although it's not my favorite lavenders, it is quite a nice fragrance.

    Royal Scottish Lavender is probably at the top of my list.

    Surprised to see Plat Egoiste listed ... I get a half-decent lavender note which is much obfuscated by sage and rosemary, and a smoky cedar.

    Esprit De Lavande is my fave for its purity and slight, crispy-sweet moment but is not readily available.

    Lavandula is fantastic. It's warmer and more complex than the above. I rarely mention other products that incorporate a scent but The Lavandula classic candle is amazing.

    Slightly off-topic update:

    The best lavender scent I ever sampled, NOT just in a fragrance but in general, belongs not to any perfume, but to a simple,
    albeit high-end bar soap:

    Nesti Dante, Le Deliziose-range, lavender-scented

    Now THIS is a scent truly deserving to be released in EDC/EDT/EDP/extrait or any other regular fragrance strenght,
    as it smells just flwaless to me, just linear, straight-ahead alavender, very clean, very unisex, yet at the same time very exquisite
    and exclusive, suggesting through its fragrance the sensation, the feeling of being in the midst of a seemingly endless lavdender

    Lavender is one of the few notes with which I have a problem. That said, one of the very few lavender-prominent fragrances that I found fairly bearable is Nicolai Pour Homme.

    My daughter recently doused our dog with lavender essential oil to keep fleas off. She (the dog) is the most animalic lavender I've yet encountered. I'll still stick with Nicolai Pour Homme.

    I honestly can't say I've tried (or really wanted to try) many lavender based fragrances, not an appealing note to me.

    Having said that, those who know me will know that I cannot get enough of Oxford & Cambridge! I love this stuff, in my top 5 easily. Unfortunately I find it hard to wear as the initial lavender/peppermint hit is too much for me and makes me feel a bit nauseous! A shame!

    Not because it is not good, but because it is not so well known: Santa Maria Novella's Lavanda Ambrata = Caron pour un Homme less its animalic vanilla replaced with a light(er) amber in the base. Also smells like a lighter variant of Arome 3.

    Certainly not the best lavender, but worthy of more mention.
