The scent of lavender can be described as having a slightly floral overtone. It truly is one of the most versatile oils in nature and because there are dozens of different varieties of lavender, grown all over the world, they all smell different according to the environment they are grown in. In the perfume industry lavender is used widely to add a top or middle note and is described by professional sniffers as having ‘a green, hay-like sweetness’. Lavender is widely grown in England and in the Provence region of France for commercial use particularly in perfume, essential oils and luxury scented candles.
