The Lavender Mob


Think of lavender and 
your mind will probably drift to the soaps that gathered dust on your grandmother’s dressing table.

But back in Victorian times, lavender (the genus of the mint plant) was a common ingredient in men’s fragrances, incorporated as the fresh and uplifting top note to scents, long before citrus notes took the limelight. Its clean and calming nature was at the heart of many masculine classics, and would fill the air in barbershops the length and breadth of Europe.

Put into context, it isn’t so surprising, then, that this distinctive floral note has found its way back into the masculine psyche, spearheaded by Tom Ford’s Lavender Palm Private Blend scent and Chanel’s latest Les Exclusifs formula Jersey.

Embrace the fragrance revolution with our selection of the finest lavender-based scents around.
