Perfumed Alphabet: L is for Lavender

lavender

 

It’s versatile, familiar—

A smell most people recognize—

Yet surprisingly trickier

To work with than one might realize.

I’ve heard this is because one batch

Varies from the next; they don’t match.

 

It’s associated with calm.

No wonder lavender is found

In several products, from balm

To pillow stuffing, and you’re bound

To encounter it in perfume.

In many genres it’s subsumed.

 

 

Luxury or practicality? Floral or medicinal? Classic or contemporary? Do you have preferred lavender fragrances?

  1. I LOVE lavender, in all forms including perfumes.

    My most favorite lavender perfume is hard to recommend for testing: it’s extremely rare (in terms of going to the store and testing it) and very expensive to buy a sample. Perfume itself is also not cheap but not completely out there compared to many modern high-end perfumes. After such introduction, finally, the name: Lieber Gustav by Krigler.

    My second favorite would be even more obscure: Kiki by vero profumo: it’s next to impossible to get after the perfumer’s passing away.

    An easier obtainable, SL Gris Clair.
