Lavandin Grosso



DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION


A hybrid plant bred from crossing the “true” lavender plant Lavenduala Officinalis with the aspic lavender known as Lavandula Latifolia, Lavandin Grosso Pure has remained a remarkably popular ingredient since its initial inception in the late 1920s. With a potent herbaceous odor and extremely fresh-smelling camphene-like topnote, this oil is commonly used in all manner of perfumery, from dish soaps to fine fragrances. The rich, woody nuance of the oil’s body makes it one of the most versatile ingredients within the realm of fragrance, capable of blending perfectly with natural and essential aromatics alike. The plant's disease resistance and high-yielding flowers have contributed to it being the dominant variety of lavandin produced today, allowing it to grow in the low plains of France and Spain.
