    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?

    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

    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.

    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.

  31. #31

    Default Re: Lavender-Based Colognes?

    For me I'd like to recommend:

    Royal Scottish Lavender(if you can find it)
    Oxford and Cambridge
    Gris Clair

    And also for an unusual take Burning Barbershop by DS & Durga.

    Lots of lovely lavenders mentioned. I nominate Le Troisiemme Homme de Caron and second Gris Clair as the most suggestive.

    Default Re: Lavender-Based Colognes?

    The most often used lavender is Oxford & Cambridge. Its not sexy as in sweet or dreamy fougere like lavender, but is minty and and medicinal which I think is sexy. I wear it when I need a healing on my skin. I also like L'Occitan PH which is a lavender fragrance with equal weight given to pepper and then woods for a darker more serious take on lavender. Annat Fritz Classical is a fantastic green fragrance, one of my spring favorites, and a top 20 fragrance for me and I didn't know it had lavender in it until I saw it recommended by Rynegne above. These three are excellent.

    For the more dressed up fougere type lavender fragrance its hard to beat Penhaligon's Sartorial. Serge Lutens Encens Lavande is a super good dry transparent incense lavender, but it is very hard to find this one as I believe it is still Paris exclusive.

    Lots of variety in lavender fragrances out there. Still need to try Calvin K. Euphoria - I will look for it today.
