Aromatherapy oil smelling perfume

I love the smell from essential oils, the best way to describe it would be 'This Works' pillow spray.
I find Clinique Aromatics a bit too strong, with a slightly bitter dry down. Does anyone know if any other perfumes exist with an aroma smell that has good staying power?

The pillow spray lists lavender - vetiver - chamomile. Aromatics is a chypre. A fragrance family even closer to your pillow spray is aromatic fougere - a classic masculine mix. Spritz around in men's department? For straight-up lavender, try Caldey Island Lavender.

Slumberhouse Pear + Olive smells like a holistic yoga studio, but very pricey...

Is it specifically the pillow spray you like? The main oils in that are lavendar, patchouli and vetivert. Can you pin down what you like about the smell? Patchouli and vetivert are both quite dark, earthy, "dirty" smells, whereas lavendar is floral/herbal.

I like the herbal and mossy smell if that makes sense!

That sounds like the lavender and patchouli.
