Just towards the end of August 2011, L'Occitane en Provence launched a new fragrance in the Eau-de-Cologne genre called Eau de Cologne Lavande. While one can find extremely cheap lavender colognes in supermarket aisles, the L'Occitane offering presents itself as a more upmarket version of that simple scent, especially in the European price range...
Yes, there is apparently a price war going on because in France the Eau de Cologne Lavande is priced at 45€ (= $64), while in the US, it is available for $35 (= 24,29€.)
The jus is composed with notes of citruses and a woody-musky finish. The impression of lavender it gives is that of oxygenated lavender.
"Brightened by the radiant freshness of citrus fruits, the Lavender Eau de Cologne has a light, breezy scent, underlined by a woody, musky base with a captivating trail.
This vibrant Cologne is a celebration of summer that captures the sunshine and brightness of Haute-Provence."
Official notes are:
Top Notes: POD Lavender, Bergamot, Peach
Middle Notes: Freesia, Marigold
Base Notes: Benzoin, Musk
The 300 ml bottle can be used either as a splash and spray flacon (after having virtually disappeared, there is a return to splash bottles in some quarters.)
