Maillette lavender is a fine lavender that does not reproduce by seed germination, but by vegetative propagation. It is a clonal lavender that is widely cultivated in Provence on sunny mountain slopes between 600 and 1700 meters. Maillette lavender is a gray-green, dense, evergreen bush that produces long stems topped by flower spikes. The very aromatic, blueviolet flowers form tubular calyxes and give off a pleasant, characteristic odor when rubbed or crushed.

Maillette lavender is distilled in a truck box. This technique was invented in the 1990s to increase productivity and entails roughly crushing the botanical raw material and ensiling it in a truck box. Distillation takes place immediately after the harvest, in the same truck box in which it was collected, with no intermediate handling.
