The noble often takes place in the shadows
I've been lurking around this fragrance for a long time. So really he has not taken off here and it is also in doubt for me whether he is bought quite generally like. He is and remains very modest and unimpressive, especially for a floral fragrance. There is nothing opulent here. But just that makes him very sympathetic to me.
The composition is quickly explained: for me is actually not so much the lavender, but rather the noble cool rose in the center. The one has to imagine here of course not in full dove-netted bloom, but rather dimmed and understated. It does not shine out of a magnificent flower arrangement, but rather hangs down from a wild hedge, which the late summer has already bleached and dried a little. Here the aroma doesn't explode, here a withered hint of it shimmers nobly. You could almost call it bitter. The result is a very restrained aura for the perfume, which emphasizes the adult, timeless casualness through this dry aspect. I like that very much. British I find this here in any case.
But of course, there's also the lavender in this fragrance. He is rather sweet-tempered and gives the rose a bit of the fullness that she herself may not show. In addition, there is another co-player, an herbaceous accord, which makes the whole thing even more cool and sober. May it be mint or eucalyptus, something grassy or leafy green, it's not that discernible. In any case, it gives it that crucial twist. Those familiar with "You or someone like you" by ELDO may have found a much less gaudy, much darker relative here.
The base isn't particularly powerful. Wood is there, but in twig rather than trunk strength. It gives the thing the appropriate extension, but doesn't really prop it up. So the fragrance remains very fine in texture and doesn't get much heavier towards the end than at the beginning.
I just see that I wrote earlier: "The composition is quickly explained." It wasn't now. I can recommend "Lavender on the rocks" to all of you. A quiet, good representative of the thinly populated fraction of slim, slightly floral perfumes that also work very well on the gentleman.

It started so beautifully....
Lavender and rose- in itself a dream team.components that invite you to dive in. In this case, rather a bellyflop. Everything a tad too loud, too synthetic too hard - just not round enough for my dramatic nose. Too bad actually - I was so confident....
