Don't know about those soaps, but my personal favorite lavender AS is Agua Lavanda Puig.

It used to be Latha Lavanda ... until MLS Jefferson Square came along.
For as, it was Chatillon Lux Champs a Lavande until Jefferson Square was released.

These two are my favourites: 

Castle Forbes Lavender

Tabula Rasa Dark Lavender

I will have to add Mike's Hungarian Lavender after using it today for the first time. What a marvellous scent in this Mike's Hungarian Lavender.
And I also forgot about Meißner Tremonia Lavender de Luxe, just like Czech & Speak Oxford & Cambridge, which also is fantastic, Lavender de Luxe is not a true lavender, but the mix is just so wonderful in this soap/paste (I own both the paste and soap)

The Gentleman who also mentions Atkinson Lavender, is correct. I also forgot that one. The same manufacturer, that makes I Coloniali cream and soap, also makes Atkinson Lavender shaving cream, and this is just a so relaxing nice lavender. You have to try it. Performance of the cream is formidable too.

Forgot this one, which I own in both the cream, hard soap and the shaving stick version: DR Harrris Lavender - I love it !!

Another "of course" statement!  O&C is top shelf for certain.

Top lavender soaps in regards to performance and scent, Mike's Hungarian Lavender, Castle Forbes Lavender or B & M Lavanda. I can't tolerate peppermint but you don't mind it, Czech and Speake/Fine Lavender Pour Homme.

I also own and love Czech & Speak O&C, but to me it's not at pure lavender, but more of a lavender mix, and a fine one.

For aftershave, take a look at Art of Shaving. Expensive, but I think their balms are moisturizing, and very soothing when you need it. If there is one near you, then stop in and try it out (they have testers)

I LOVE lavender, and unfortunately, I will also have to say "none of the above"....

For artisan, I would choose:  MW Jeff's Lavender, Mike's Hungarian Lavender, Meißsner Tremonia Lavender De Luxe. 

Non-artisan:  CF Lavender, Atkinson's Lavender Cream, C&S O&C (one of my favorite scents of all time although not a true lavender-only scent).  

For AS, any of the matching AS's for the non-artisan ones I mentioned.
