the best classic lavender
I love lavender so I can be biased... however Atkinsons lavender is one of the best for me. I've tried several over the years and I always found something I didn't like (often the sweet bases of coumarin or vanillin or musky and powdery) and it made me move on to the next one. I rediscovered the Atkinsons one (because a relative used it years and years ago and it is with her that I had the imprinting with the scent of this aromatic herb) a couple of years ago and it was immediately love. It's an almost usual lavender, if it weren't for the dry woody notes in the background, a very light geranium that gives it "movement" and nothing else. It is linear, herbaceous, cold and dry, not sweet at all and it is precisely this last characteristic that makes me love it so much. I find it perfect after the shower but also to use in the morning, on sunny and mild days, to be sprayed inside the shirt and on the neck to feel clean and fresh. Obviously for many it may seem like an "old style" perfume, in the sense that nowadays those sweet and nauseating filth that are masculine (for a lover of classic masculine like me) are in fashion, so perfumes of this kind are "out of fashion", but sticaxxi...
