Gentlemen, request inputs on software on the above 2 scents. I am looking for soap /cream and aftershave balm/lotion /aftershave milk to match the fragrance.

I have Barrister & Mann Lavanda and Castle forbes lavender cream in my mind on lavender front. Any other better options pls?

On tobacco notes I came across ABC tobacco aftershave milk. Is there a soap /cream to match it Pls?

Any other fragrance which goes better for you pls feel free to share.

I would post a WTB thread in hopes of spring TSN LE Saponificio Varesino Flying Mango Soap. It is the only one I can think of with my knowledge that may be of interest.

Cold River Soap Works Lavender or Savon No.1 (my choice) are two excellent options. As for tobacco scented, sorry can't help you there, not a big fan of that genre.

B&M Latha Lavanda is an excellent choice. For a pairing aftershave I would suggest the upcoming Fine Lavender pour Homme, or make your own by adding some glycerin and menthol to Puig Agua Lavanda.

I'm not familiar with ABC Tobacco, but some of the more popular tobacco scents are Razorock Santa Maria del Fiore, Chiseled Face Sherlock, and Henri et Victoria Cognac & Cubans.

Yes it is expensive, but it is worth the expense.
I couldn't find a retailer to ship directly to India but smallflower.com MAY be able to.

Well if you're not hung up on spending a lot, WSP Rustic Tobacco is quiet nice and even the Mahogany works well with tobacco scented a/s
Lavender wise if you can find a Yardley that still has it's scent probably as best as you can do for a Lavender based scent along with Oxford & Cambridge, and Castle Forbes is a very nice straight Lavender

I'll throw in a vote for Mike's natural lavender. Nice soap, simple, lavender essential oil.

For tobacco scents:

Mickey Lee Soapworks - Grand Havana. Ita a little on the sweet side, but excellent performance. 

The Shaving Shop - The Savoy : this obenaufs made by Henri et Victoria for The Shaving Shop. It smells similar to Mickey Lee Soapworks Grand Havana, I prefer the performance of Mickey Lee Soapworks though. I've not smelled Cognac and Cuban Cigars, though it crossed my mind they may be similar.  


For lavender:

If you can find it, Barrister & Mann Black Label Lavender is outstanding. Since Blacl Label has been discontinued, you'll either have to find someone parting with one, or settle for Latha - Lavanda. It's the same scent, just a different soap base. I prefer Black Label, but Latha is no slouch. 

Martin de Candre Original is Lavender. Some don't like the price, or performance. I think it lasts a VERY long time, which mitigates the price. I personally like the performance, but that's relative.

Castle Forbes was the first lavender I tried and to be honest, it spoiled me. When I had finished the pot I was loathe to spend the big money (comparatively) to replace it, so I bought a tub of TOBS at roughly a third the cost. I am not saying in retrospect that the TOBS is only a third as good as CF, it really is not bad, but when it runs out I will be throwing my money back at CF. As for a matching scent, I don't mind Cella eau de lavender.

Lavender is one of my favourite scents in soaps and cream.

My favourites are:
Tabula Rasa Dark Lavender (my number 1 lavender)
Castle Forbes Lavender
Barrister & Mann Black Label Lavender/Latha Lavender
Marrtin de Candre Original
Cold River Soap Works Select Lavender
Cold River Soap Works Select Savon No.1
Czech & Speak Oxford & Cambridge (Not a true lavender though, but nice)
Penhaligon Endymion (Not a true lavender, but very nice too)

Further down the list:
Truefitt & Hill Lavender
DR Harris Lavender
AOS Lavender
TOBS Lavender

Regarding Tobacco scented soaps and creams, while I love the scent of pipe Tobacco, I can not envision it work very well in a soap/cream for shaving, since it's quite a strong pungent note, just like leather - but I have a few, that has tobacco scents hidden in the composition and also some that use the tobacco leaf, which is more mild than actual tobacco:

Cold River Soap Works Select Bergamot & Bay
Tabac (there IS tobacco hidden in the background, but it's well hidden, but it's there)
Mondial Green Tobacco
DR Harris Marlborough soap & cream
Barrister & Mann Roam
Caties Bubbles Le Piment de la Vie (I get a spicy pipe tobacco in the background from this soap)
