WHO KNEW LAVENDER SMELLED LIKE MUSK AND CHEMICALS
I have absolutely gorgeous smelling lavender body wash and shampoo, therefore I decided to give Yardley’s a try based on the lavender scent. Unfortunately, I did not find Yardley’s to embrace that beautiful smell that other lavender products I have represent. The smell to me is very musky, but off. I’m not one for colognes or perfumes that smell like chemicals and Yardley’s is just strange. I had heard so many good things about it, I thought maybe I got a bad bottle or something because I was shocked that I disliked it so much. There seem to be some lighter after-notes (did I smell vanilla?), which are more pleasant but the initial “lavender” smell is not. The good thing is that once it’s on, it doesn’t permeate everything so you don’t smell horrible all day. I didn’t really care for the bottle either, it’s pretty bland compared to some of the cool things they do with packaging these days. I think I’ll stick to my body wash (Dial’s Lavender and Twilight Jasmine is to die for) and my lavender shampoo. Too bad the Internet doesn’t have smell-o-vision, it could have saved me a few bucks.
Refreshing lavender! Stays long time! Its a classic!
I saw my mother and aunt using English Lavender, powder and soaps, since I was a kid. I myself just love lavender and use a lot of stuff, with lavender in it! I bought this, from an airport, while I was travelling. I am just in love with it! It smells so amazing, and refreshing, and the scent stays long time. Its a really nice lavender smell, which is not too strong but sweet! I think the price is really great for the size. Its a must try cologne!
Scent is different
Have to get used to the different type of scent it has to grow on you and I had to spray a couple times to enjoy.
Classic scent does not overwhelm
I place lavender soap in with my lingerie and sweaters. The cologne gives a gentle lavender scent from just a spritz.
I love all the yardley products; this smells very good if you like lavender; i also use the body lotion and body wash to go with it.
