"lavender perfume, lavender eau de toilette/fragance"


Explanation:
Como mi respuesta anterior para "colonia fresca", la traducciñon será "lavender perfume, lavender eau de toilette", debido de que para mujures, normalmente no venden lavender a los hombres!

Eau de toilette es un poco más sofisticado debido de que del orígen francés, también es fragance aunque eso se dice más en los estados unidos.
Perfume es lo mismo como en el castellano.
Espero que le ayude.
