The essence of Provence.
Too often confused with hybrid lavender (lavandin), lavender aspic, and sometimes even rosemary, true French lavender is a rare find and has a delicate, herbal, slightly tangy scent enhanced with floral notes.
Origins and culture
Native to the western Mediterranean Basin, lavender has been used extensively in Provence to create perfume for centuries, as far back as the Middle Ages. Widespread cultivation began in the nineteenth century.
For our collection of natural essences, we’ve selected an Orpur quality of essential oil sourced from the Givaudan Foundation’s partnership with harvesters in Drôme.
