    Default Lavender-Based Colognes?

    Hey guys, can anyone recommend any really sexy cologne--like CK's Euphoria for Men in terms of "sexyness"!--that has lavender as a base?

    A Taste of Heaven By Kilian is much more expensive than Caron's, but also classier & smoother

    Seconding especially Caron pour un Homme. Another fragrance worth testing may also be Endymion by Penhaligons: a very interesting, non-linear and unpredictable gourmand with a certain hint of lavender behind the mocha-fudge-chocolate-sage (and other herbs)-suede dominant impression.

    +1 (LeMale)yes although last years is great also as it's infrastructure (skeleton) appropriately remains the same IMO....and even if you get a vintage bottle what's the guarantee that it has been well kept, obviously regulations after introduction has reduced potency to an extend but like I said the skeleton remains intact ...great juice IMO

    Not the sexiest one (or better said, I don't know what a "sexy scent" is), rather the BEST ONE: Oxford & Cambridge.

    Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Anat Fritz Classical is a really good lavender-based scent...masculine as well - Lavender, vetiver, cedar, sandalwood. Really good stuff.

    Royal scotish lavender is as lavender as a lavender can be. So natural smelling. Great stuff....


    Als, try Robert Piguet Cravache. it's very nice stuff with a natural lavender vibe to it also.

    Caron Pour Un Homme is a great lavender-prominent one.

    Have you tried Diptyque eau de Lavande, just released this year? It has cinnamon and nutmeg in it, although a couple of reviews said it's weak.

    Scottish Lavender is a great scent, but has been discontinued. LV's Uomo is a very nice sophisticated lavender.

    Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge, 1725 Casanova, and Gris Clair are excellent.

    Epiphany by House of Matriarch is also great for a smoky Lavender.
