When I first heard of Bath & Body Works' French Lavender & Honey eau de parfum, back in the Spring of 2014, I was intrigued. Alas, life got in the way, and I haven't really had the time to truly sit down and evaluate the scent until today.
French Lavender & Honey opens with a blast of green melon -- perhaps honeydew, and then is quickly tempered out with the smooth honey and herbaceous lavender notes. The lavender in this perfume is not very prominent; instead, it is there to lend support, and prevent the rest of the blend from smelling overly sweet.
After a few minutes on my skin, a very pleasant note of hay-like sweet grass enters, rounding out the rest of the perfume. The final result of French Lavender & Honey makes me feel as though I am in the vast and green countryside somewhere, with the cool breeze carrying the scents of a lavender field, and honey being harvested while a farmer nearby has just cut open a fresh, ripened melon.
French Lavender & Honey is a very soft perfume, yet not weak. It stays close to your skin throughout the day, and while it doesn't smell intense, you will find yourself catching whiffs of it at the most unexpected moments.
Something about French Lavender & Honey reminds me of Marc Jacobs' Daisy, but without being as floral; it's more like the two perfumes are sharing a spirit, although the scent of French Lavender & Honey has an elegance that Daisy lacks. If you enjoy Daisy, however, you might enjoy French Lavender & Honey.
