    It is almost impossible to put into words how truly incredible this Lavender “Signature” Absolute is. This is so rich it is a solid mass, not a liquid. There is not a single bad note here, just 100% pure lavender. This is so universally loved by our staff that we keep a small container in the laboratory so we can have the pleasure of smelling it through the day.

    We have tested many lavender absolutes from all the top French houses and this is not just better than everything we sampled - this is better than anything we ever imagined possible with a lavender product.

    A single sniff transports you to the middle of Provence where the scent of lavender soaks the air. This absolute is rich with notes of dried fruits, tonka beans and herbs.

    There does not exist under the sun a more profoundly beautiful expression of French lavender.

    Pair this with Lavender “Avice Hill”  (nourished by the glacial waters of the Southern Alps), our exquisite small batch Lavandin, Grosso Oil, and the classic De Laire Foin Coupé base for a truly sublime fougère.

    NOTE: this absolute is very thick and pasty but can be added directly to your fragrance compound as-is. If you wish to work with a solution, it will dissolve fully in Benzyl Benzoate (we recommend natural) at 10% and at 10% in ethanol — with some slight murkiness. Use it as normal and remember to chill and filter your fragrance prior to bottling. 

    Origin: Provence, France
    Part: Flowers only
    Method: Solvent extracted

    Appearance: Deep green solid
    Longevity: Lasts > 24 hours on a smelling strip

    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.

    IFRA 51: 0.17%
    IFRA 49: 0.17%

    Lavender heaven

    I’ve already had the pleasure of smelling this truly amazing lavender absolute. As a hardcore fan of lavender raw materials, I can confirm everything Jamie has written. Yes, it’s a solid mass and intensely colored, but the smell… pure lavender heaven. Dreams of coumarinic-sweet, soft, and multi-faceted lavender come true when smelling this absolute!
