    Lavender “Avice Hill” NZ ALPS P&N is an incredibly fine lavender angustifolia variety grown in New Zealand at the foothills of the rugged and wild Southern Alps (pictured), located in the South Island.  The lavender plants are raised on glacial water which takes thirteen years to travel down the alpine slopes in the form of purified ice.

    Because every second counts when working with cut lavender, our partner farm distills the oil-rich flowers in under one hour of harvesting. No other producer boasts this speed and the resulting oil is the best in the world.

    In comparative testing against the finest lavenders from the fragrance industry, this oil comes first every time. When other lavenders dry to a dusty or earthy note, our Lavender “Avice Hill” maintains is superb floral character with a sweetness and intensity not found in any other variety. The near-mythical lavender Barreme is the oils that would have been the closest match to the sublime scent, longevity and elegance of this pure New Zealand essential oil. Tragically true lavender Barreme is now extinct due to French growers adopting genetically modified varieties to replace the old wild lavender fields due to higher yields of oil - an oil inferior in quality.

    Lavender “Avice Hill” is astonishingly high in linalyl acetate content giving it a more elegant and refined floralcy than most. This is the mark of true quality in lavender. Our partner farm neither spikes nor blends across harvests to meet commercialised standards. With Lavender “Avice Hill”, What you get is what nature gives … and nothing more.

    Once you try this oil you will never use another.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    A wonderful lavender. Far superior to large-scale commercial crops.

    Best Lavender EO

    Having tried a few lavender eo this is by far the best I'd recommend. it's bright, herbaceous, uplifting, and most importantly clean. the only lavender eo id be using now ;)

    Worth it

    Very impressed with the long, sweet dryout of this oil on skin; it got to the point where I assumed it was starting to fade out and then it just kept going. Comparing directly to the Barreme oil, I'd say the Avice Hill topnote is a bit earthier, warmer, fruitier and less ethereal-citrus-powdery-clean. I prefer the Bareme at first, it's finer, but after several minutes this stuff becomes more coherent and they converge a bit, with this fruitier/rounder, slightly woody, and the Barreme more ethereal/powdery. Further into the drydown this becomes still cleaner and now has the edge in terms of presence, displaying a coumarinic sweetness and fruity aspects not present in the Barreme. I'll be using this going forward and am happy to have found a worthy substitute that lasts so well.

    Extremely floral lavender

    This is a stunning lavender ! I've been collecting lavender oils from all over and I am truly impressed with that one. It's just so clean and bright...The floral aspect really shines and I find it more versatile than most of my other oils. You can tell that great care was taken in the distillation of this oil. Another amazing quality natural from Fraterworks !

    Crystalline lavender

    It's quite impressive how clean and clear this oil smells and - even more fascinating - how the scent remains almost unchanged during the hours on the scent strip. This lavender reminds me somehow of Yardley's 'English Lavender' (vintage version). Lovely!
