Eau Sauvage. No dominant but good.
Thread: Lavender+Lemon fragrances?
After wearing Le Roy Soleil Extreme, this appears to be my favorite note combo. What other fragrances have a dominant lavender+lemon?

Vintage Dolce Gabanna Pourr hHomme is the only of this sort I have in my mini collection, but Id say its worth trying out!
Azzaro Pour Homme L'Eau.
Actually have a bottle on the way. Haven't tried the Le Roy Soleil Extreme, but the ApHL is similar to the original only brighter and more citrusy. Very classy though, and going for great prices online lately.
My Current Top 10:
Rive Gauche Light (2004)
Paul Smith Man (2009)
Burberry London (2006)
Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
Live Jazz (1998)
Eau des Baux (2006)
Midnight in Paris EDP (2010)
Arpege pour Homme (2005)
Eau Duelle (2010)
Mouchoir de Monsieur is great - if you don't mind a dollop of civet. Penhaligon's Racquets Formula is a cleaner option.
Annick Goutal Eau du Sud fits your description
If you ever want something creamy that is very heavy on the lemon and vanilla with a hint of lavender try Hanae Mori HM.
I get both lavender and lemon even from the regular Azzaro PH.
Blenheim Bouquet. Lemon, Lavender, Pine, and Black Pepper.
Edit: Just remembered another - Lanvin L`Homme Sport.

Caron Pour Un Homme has dominant lavender and lemon in the top; vanilla enters the stage later.
Perhaps Lavande & Vetiver by Jeanne en Provence.
I like the suggestions. Thanks.
I've also come across Lomani Pour Homme. http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/L...omme-3114.html
and Axis Blue Caviar http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/S...iar-13205.html
and Azzaro Pure Lavender

Simplex Sigillum Veri
Robert Piguet Cravache. Love it
When I tried it, I had some trepidations, expecting overly stinky, civet-heavy composition (based on all the reviews) - alas it turned out to be a classic lavender/citrus/vanilla combo. Very aromatic, yes, but not stinky.
Lavender is not my favorite note, but I can tolerate it or even like it in some fragrances. For example, Penhaligon's Sartorial does lavender well - it's still got that timeless/old-school charm, yet doesn't feel like grandpa cologne. No lemon per se in this one, but if you are after nice lavender - it's worth at least trying this one.
