What Does Floral Lavender Smell Like

The scent of Dossier's Floral Lavender perfume is a fascinating fusion of both masculine and feminine notes, making it a gender-neutral fragrance that defies conventions. It opens with a bright and sunny citrus blend of mandarin, neroli, and orange blossom. These notes provide a cheerful, energetic opening that is quite compelling.

The heart of the perfume reveals warm jasmine hints, contrasting beautifully with the crisp citrus opening, adding a layer of floral depth. It’s here that lavender enters the scene, a note often considered masculine, but in this context, it seems to soften the floral heart, adding a layer of complexity to the scent.

As the perfume settles, the base notes of vanilla, amber, and musk emerge, providing a warm, comforting finish to the scent. The vanilla adds a hint of sweetness that marries well with the warmer amber and musk, grounding the floral and citrus notes.

The perfume is reminiscent of YSL's Libre, capturing its essence of freedom and boldness. It marries the softness of feminine florals with the sturdy masculine lavender to create a scent that is distinct, memorable, and pleasantly different. This perfume encapsulates the insubordinate spirit of Libre, providing an olfactory experience that is both vibrant and warm, pushing the boundaries of traditional gendered fragrances.

Review of Floral Lavender

The Floral Lavender perfume from Dossier, drawing inspiration from YSL's Libre, strikingly echoes the bold and free-spirited ethos of its muse. The distinguishing feature of this dupe is its affordability, retailing at just $29, a significant budget-friendly alternative to the original priced at $106.

The scent profile of Floral Lavender, similar to Libre, is a harmonious blend of warm and fresh floral notes with an androgynous twist. The initial sunny citrus burst, courtesy of the mandarin, neroli, and orange blossom top notes, is reminiscent of Libre's lively introduction. The scent's evolution into warmer jasmine and vanilla is equally smooth, mirroring the essence of Libre while still preserving its own unique character.

Floral Lavender, true to its name, brings lavender to the forefront. This is a bold move, considering lavender is often associated with masculine fragrances. However, Dossier handles this with finesse, marrying it with feminine undertones, creating an intriguing unisex appeal.

While Floral Lavender is a commendable replica of Libre, it's important to note that it's not an exact match. The perfume's concentration is 15%, which might not pack the same punch as Libre's Eau de Parfum version. The longevity may also differ based on your skin type and the environment.

This vegan, cruelty-free perfume with clean ingredients is definitely a solid choice for those yearning for the spirit of Libre without burning a hole in their pocket. Dossier's Floral Lavender, with its playful gender-fluid twist, is a worthy contender in the world of perfume dupes. It's an accessible way to experience the essence of a luxury perfume, and perhaps, even make a bold, individualistic statement of your own.
