Lavender

Freshly cut

 

Lavender has been known since ancient times. The Romans already used it to perfume their linen and baths.

From the 13th century onwards, it was used for therapeutic purposes. It is often found in the medicinal plant gardens of monasteries.

 

In Provence, lavender was used in the Middle Ages to make perfumes and medicines, but it was not until the 19th century that its cultivation developed.

The boom in French production of lavender essential oil is linked to the establishment of perfume factories in the Grasse region.

 

Lavender is harvested before the flowers open, from late July to late August, in the case of "true" lavender. 

Harvesting takes place in summer, as the high temperatures encourage the essence to rise in the cells and secretory glands of the flower. The sprigs are more fragrant if they are picked just before the flowers open.

 

It's this precise moment that we've captured to bring you a unique olfactory experience.
