Apparently Lavender = Lemon

All in all, if you already know what pure lavender oil smells like and you like it, you'll probably like this. The scent isn't the longest lasting and it's a little pricey, but it can be worth it if you know what you're getting into.
Minimal ingredients, Theoretically relaxes and soothes
Scent definitely isn't for everybody, Scent doesn't last long, Fairly pricey

extremely useful review


So in theory, you would use this spray to "tantalize" your senses, leaving you serene and calm, with a fresh, clean scent and an aura of luxury. It claims to perfume your environment and help you face the rigors of the day and relax. Well, probably not so much.

If you like the scent, you could spray it in the air in whichever room you wanted to relax and chill out. Unless you're allergic to lavender, then you should definitely avoid this.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

In the bottle it sloshes around just like water. If you've ever got the cap unscrewed for whatever reason, be very, very careful. It will spill easily, and probably stain whatever it spills on.

It comes out of the spray in a fine mist. If you spray it in the air as directed, you shouldn't have any problems with it leaving marks on anything or landing on anything in a large glob. The closer you spray to a surface, the larger the globs that land will be.

I haven't noticed any greasy or sticky feelings, but I've also avoided getting this on my skin while it was still wet.

Taste / Aroma

Don't taste this. Just, don't. It doesn't smell like anything you'd want to taste. This comes in lavender, lemon, and peppermint. I've got the lavender, and honestly, I thought it smelled a lot like lemon, at least at first.

My husband took a whiff and immediately thought of sour lemon drops candy. I smelled lemon Pine-Sol. I passed it around for a few more opinions, and my mom (who has experience with actual lavender oil) confirms that it does smell pretty true to lavender oil but with a hint of tea tree oil. The more I sit and smell it, the less like lemon it starts to smell, and I start catching hints of Eucalyptus. It's a very complicated scent.


I've sprayed this stuff a few times, each time hoping to like the scent more. Thankfully, the scent didn't last that long for us, since I would spray it before we would go take a shower, and the bedroom didn't really smell like anything different when we got back. I kept forgetting that I had sprayed it at all.

I haven't had any problems with seeing oily residues on anything, but I also made sure to spray way up in the air and only had some of the spray land on a very dark comforter. If you're going to get this, try to avoid spraying it on anything, since you might end up with spots.


It comes in a clear 4 ounce bottle with a spray pump on the top. While you can smell the contents if you're near the cap, it doesn't actually leak, which is very nice. I've also had no issues with the spray pump either, it's worked well for me every time I've used it. I'd feel comfortable traveling with it.

There's nothing terribly risque about the bottle either, unless someone is familiar with System JO, since it does say it fairly noticeably. It also lists the scent, the ingredients, which for the lavender is purified water, alcohol, and lavender oil. There's a little section pumping up the product and how awesome JO says it is, as well as directions and cautions. First, shake it well, then spray in the air of the desired area. You should avoid spraying directly on any surfaces or near open flames.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense


I did a little bit of research on lavender, and I found some interesting stuff. According to folk wisdom, infusions of lavender soothe and heal insect bites and burns. Bunches of lavender can repel insects. If applied to the temples, lavender oil can soothe headaches. In pillows, lavender seeds and flowers can aid sleep and relaxation. It's all stuff I had heard before, but hadn't ever actually put any real thought into.

I got this more on a whim than anything else. I had a coupon and was paying with gift cards, so if I didn't like it, I realistically wasn't out anything. After opening and smelling it, I realized that I definitely had the wrong thought as to what lavender smelled like, and later realized that I was thinking of lilacs instead. However, the scent has grown on me more and more, although I'm far from loving it. If you've had experience with and enjoy the scent of actual lavender oil, I think you'll probably like this.
Follow-up commentary
While the scent was growing on me, I just never found myself using this at all. A good friend of mine absolutely loves the scent of lavender and happily took this off my hands for me. I still stick by my initial suggestion of only getting this if you already know you like lavender.

    I might have to try this. I love real, true lavender. I find so many manufacturers try to add things to their lavender product make them smell...different somehow. Always baffles me because it needs no enhancing, in my opinion. Thanks for you review.

    I am intrigued by the true lavender scent. I love the smell of lavender but most products have that "fakey" smell. Thank you for the review.

    Haha I know right! I always feel bad throwing out stuff I barely used, so if I can pass it on to anybody, I'm normally more than happy to do so.
