    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.

    I am surprised no one here has mentioned Agua Lavanda by Puig.

    For a fresh lavender summer scent, check out D'Orsay Arome 3 Tradition.

    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!

    Other than what's already mentioned, there's also a new one from L'Occitane called Eau de la Recolte Bleue - Lavender Harvest

    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.

    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

    1. Creed Royal Scottish Lavender
    2. Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge
    ^Those 2 are no doubt the pinnacle of lavender-dominated scents imo.


    Honorable mention to 2 that have substantial lavender in them:
    Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    Acqua Di Parma Colonia

    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.

    Encens Et Lavande is stunning, but I haven't tried the other Lutens lavenders. It's a note that I like but don't really go out of my way for.

    Nancy Boy Signature Scent Body Spray. Concentrated combo of Lavender, Peppermint, and Rosemary. You can feel it tingling for a while after application. Simple, but I really like it.

    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
