    Default Powdery lavender scents

    I'm a big Old Spice fan and I recently layed out money for a cologne that was on my wishlist...1987s Night Spice. I ended up loving it. But it's discontinued and is getting increasingly harder to find with a reasonable price tag.

    To my nose, its very powdery and lavender. Just a little bit of spice. I'd say it's quite unisex. Very simple and unique. Are there any affordable fragrances out there that are basically powdery lavender?

    I'm a huge fan of 1725 by Histoires De Parfums. I realize that's expensive, but, many people seem to think Deauville is similar to 1725. That could be an affordable option.

    Caron Pour Un Homme de Caron would be an example. Guerlain Jicky and Heritage also come to mind. A little bit pricer but still affordable.

    Lavender Extreme is a nice but incredibly outrageously priced fragrance that fills this need. Caron Pour un Homme or Jicky is what I'd suggest personally.

    I find Beu de jour by tom ford to be an excellent lavender with a very slight powder edge. I have the one in the Brown square bottle.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Oxford & Cambridge by Czech & Speake. So powdery, yet still masculine.
