A sweet little lavender
I recently procured a Coffret Découverte from Molinard of their Les Fleurs collection at the princely sum of 19 Euro for a set of 5 10ml spray bottles. I have had the desire, of late, to try a few 'unadorned' florals so this was the perfect opportunity.

Lavande is a simple, sweet little lavender with hay and tobacco nuances undoubtedly provided by the addition of Coumarin, a chemical component of the odor in Tonka Beans. This Molinard offering in Eau de Toilette strength is exactly that, a floral water best used for refreshment or relaxation, rather than a serious contender as a fragrance. My sillage and longevity ratings here are on the low side, but that should not be taken as a negative ... simply a reflection on what this eau is supposed to be. One cannot take away its skillful blending and use of superb ingredients. That these fragrances go for a song is indeed no reflection on their obvious quality. I could well imagine spraying this on my sheets, pillows and myself as a relaxing prelude to sleep ... a use Lavender is well known for.
As a note, Lavender is gainfully employed in the pyramids of two of my favorite 'masculine' fragrances, Versace The Dreamer and Gaultier's Le Male. In both of these, it provides a somewhat sharp but sweet character to both ... giving one the impression of vitality.

Molinard's Lavande is never going to be a 'top ten' fragrance for anyone, but it does come with the noble distinction of being created by one of Europe's oldest perfumeries. After more than a century in the business I'm quite sure they know what they are doing :).
