Lavender is a fragrance note that I've long avoided. I acquired a bottle of Caron Pour Homme as part of a trade a couple of years ago, and it won me over with the vanilla dry down as a great casual wear. Today I found a bottle of Art of Shaving Green Lavender Cologne Intense at Burlington for $19, and I have to say, I can see myself wearing this one a lot. The green, citrus and woodsy notes really smooth out the lavender for me. It doesn't have that sweet vanilla note like Caron, and so comes across to me as more of a classy barbershop scent. I tend to keep my fragrance purchase on the bargain or bang-for-buck end of things, so this one was a very pleasant surprise and hit well above its price point for me.
