This really doesn't smell like lavender at all. Though it does smell good. Like someone else reviewed, it smells like a cologne I know, but I can't quite place it. Though I really like the way it smells, I'm giving 4 stars because it smells nothing like lavender as the name suggests.

We did experience slight acceleration but no separation. Once we achieved a light trace, we stick blended just a few seconds more and ended up with a thick trace. The batter poured smoothly into the mold at this point. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had reached a full gel and the bars had discolored to tan with a purplish hue. The scent was very strong. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a light tan and the scent was strong. If you plan to do a bit of detailed design work it may be best to hand stir in the fragrance at a light trace to make sure you have plenty of time to work.
Like many, on the hunt for a true lavender scent. This is the closest I’ve come to it but still not what people expect or are looking for.
Ive been looking for a great lavender scent for a while now. this one smells great, but still not what im looking for :( to me, personally it smells more like driftwood w/ a tiny hint of lavender. I suggest adding a little bit more lavender for all my lavender lovers like me! other than that i do like it!
Absolutely gorgeous and complex fragrance!
Not sure I get much of the Lavender but it definitely smells like an iconic 90's cologne.....my scent memory is bad so my guess is CK One is what I'm thinking of. Love it though and will enjoy blending it with other fragrance oils!
I haven’t put this in wax yet but out of bottle I just love it. It smells like lavender drifting on wood down a river. It’s really nice. I’m trying not to compare to white sage and lavender because I love sage but I think I like this one slightly better.
I'm not a huge fan of the scent of lavender but I had chose to check this out to replace my lavender & Sage fragrance oils in case I like it...and oh my god it smells amazing! I didn't think id like it so much. The green leaves top note is very obvious, but there's a light sweet note of lavender after. This scent is definitely a keeper. I'm glad I've decided to try it out. :)
I personally HATE lavender and I really like this fragrance! The lavender is really subtle, it’s definitely more driftwood. If you’re looking for a strong lavender scent this is not the one for you but if you’re a fellow lavender hater I’d give this a try!
Smells like heaven!
I am not really a fan of lavender, but I like this lavender driftwood fragrance. I don't smell much lavender in it, definitely more driftwood. Hopefully when my candle cures, I can smell a bit of lavender in it.
Smells wonderful. I am not a Lavender fan but I love this OOTB. Will update review once I have made a candle.
OOTB this immediately reminds me of the hair-washing station at a fancy salon... the driftwood almost has a soft, lathery almost lotion-like quality to it. I'm sure it will smell differently when thrown hot. you could always make it more lavender forward by blending more of CS's straight lavender oil. I think it's a great blend as is though, will just have to see what it's like when lit.
The first thought I get when smelling this is "briney" so I believe the "sea" or "driftwood" was captured. However, I am wishing for more earthy/woodsy notes (just personal preference). While this is a lovely, fresh fragrance, I am not enjoying the lack of Lavender and the overpowering "briney" scent.
