I'm quite a fan of L'Occitane perfumes because many of them work on me (no matter whether they're for female, male or unisex) and they're usually quite affordable. Eau de L'Occitan is the second of their male perfumes that I tested and I have to say I prefer this compared to the other one I tested earlier, Eau des Baux. L'Occitane is clean lavender with a touch of woody notes. I personally love it; it's very clean and fresh, with not much potential to turn cloying. I have particular avoidance against cloying perfumes and Eau des Baux sadly tends to turn very cloying in hot weather, but L'Occitane thankfully doesn't! It mellows down quite considerably when it dries down and it's generally quite soft, but I think it's perfect that way. Such a clean smell doesn't need to be a scent bomb--it'll ruin the cleanness.
If you love lavender you will love this. I think this is a very authentic perfume. I do not have a fetish for lavender, but its is very well made!
