Lavender essential oil is characterised by its aromatic, floral and powdery facets. It opens with fresh and sparkling notes, with camphorous and medicinal undertones. The top notes further develop into floral and herbaceous facets, reminiscent of the sweet and delicate character of the flower itself. The high content of linalyl acetate in Lavender oil makes it a good candidate when used with bergamot, to bring fresh and bitter tonalities to woody accords.

Lavender is a traditional ingredient of the fougère family. It adds complexity to a fragrance when blended with citrus, woody and spicy notes. Lavender is often used as a top note, in combination with bergamot, lemon or orange, to create a fresh and aromatic fragrance. Lavender can also be used as a heart note, with opulent florals such as rose or jasmine, or with woody notes such as cedarwood, to convey a more sensual dimension to the fragrance.

Regenerates, tones and soothes the skin, purify the air and help you get a good night’s sleep.

Lavender grows at high altitudes, from 800 to around 1,200 metres above sea level. The plant’s production of essential oil is stimulated by the sun’s rays in summer. Lavender is productive from 2 years. It can last up to 10 years.

Harvesting takes place when the flowers are about to turn ‘grey’. The harvest lasts over a month, from July to August. Following the harvest, cut lavenders are left to dry for two or three days before distillation.

Once the drying step is complete, the cut plants are steam distilled for 45 to 90 minutes to obtain the essential oil. Approximately 150kg of lavender is required to produce 1kg of essential oil, representing a yield of 0.7%.
