    Default Searching for a manly lavender scent...

    The title says it. I've checked out several scents with lavender in it but yet to find any that suits manly-hood.

    It would be great if you have some suggestions to come up with and also if it has a pepper and/or wood note in it.

    Please help...if you can.

    Hmm...maybe not too manly like in Caron, more like lavender in heart/base note but not being tacky...thats quite a hard combination I think.

    You might have to mix up your own.

    Gris Clair - fresh lavender against a smokey bonfire.

    Oxford & Cambridge - uplifting lavender and mint.

    Or, if you can still find it, the discontinued de Nicolai Pour Homme - a lavender feast.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I love this one, and think it is definitely one of the manliest lavender-prominent scents (it can't be considered a soliflore, I guess).

    Puig's Agua Lavanda is certainly a masculine lavender - and inexpensive. More a scent than a fragrance, however.

    Czech & Speake - Oxford & Cambridge is brilliant.

    I find Lavender Palm to be unisex if not towards the feminine end of the spectrum.

    Gris Clair by Serge Lutens - Upon application, one is treated to a wave of fresh, clean lavender, with its somewhat camphoraceous and minty facets. This lovely herbal essence floats cloud-like to the waiting heart. Here, in the middle, standoffish iris commingles with the refreshing lavender, imparting its icy coolness. Whiffs of a campfire smokiness intrude to temper the cool melange with its dryness. This inviting mixture meanders to the awaiting base. The coldish brew intermingles with dry, woody notes as well as a restrained amber, with its hints of a musky and vanillic sweetness. An unworldly and ethereal incense showers the blend with its enticing and cryptic character. An alluring drydown ensues. This exhilarating composition is an all-season refuge, and has good projection and longevity.

    If you get the spray version (below) it wears nearly like an Eau de Toilette.

    Dear me, Swanky, what a nice-looking bottle. By 'scent', though, I just meant that it's not very complicated to my nose. I use it a lot - it's a _true_ eau, which means that it's good for all sorts of things beyond smelling pleasant. One can wash one's hands or hair in it, or whatever else. I've used so much Agua Lavanda that I suppose I no longer consider it a fragrance, but a hygiene product - something a little medicinal. Very wearable, in any case.

    My favorite lavenders right now are Hermès' Brin de Réglisse (licorice-lavender) and Dior's Eau Noire (spices-immortelle-lavender).
