Perhaps no scent is more closely associated with a sense of calm than lavender. The floral fragrance finds its way into candles, cleansers, and even hand sanitizers. But a great lavender perfume? That’s harder to get right.

“Lavender is a very distinct note and depending on the dosage used and the other notes in the formulation it can create or evoke a soothing, almost powdery effect to something sharper, more medicinal,” says Mona Kattan, fragrance expert, founder of Kayali Fragrances, and life-long perfume collector. “Whenever I think of lavender, it reminds me of bedtime or aromatherapy treatments as it is often used for stress relief and relaxation.”
