Our Lavender Maillette essential oil from South of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, near Digne-les-Bains, France is steam distilled from cloned cultivar of Lavandula angustifolia. Lavender Maillette grows in abundance throughout the Provence and paints the sunset sky with beautiful shades of lavender blue. Lavender aficionados and professional photographers flock to the area in mid to late July through August, cameras in hand, ready to capture spectacular images of vast lavender fields that seem to go on as far as the eye can see. It is truly a beautiful sight you should try to see if ever the opportunity arises!
Lavender Maillette essential oil has a deep aroma that resonates with perfumers. Many find the subtle green and woody somewhat spicy back note amid its sweet herbaceous aroma superior to other types of Lavender. Perfumery uses of Lavender Maillette include herbal bouquets, chypre, fougere, sacred and floral creations.
Lavender Maillette is the type of Lavender to slip into a bath with and unwind, or to diffuse and curl up to fall asleep reading a book. Aromatically, other than our Lavender High Altitude from Bulgaria this is the next sweetest of all. The smooth sweet aroma of Lavender Maillette comes from its high level of linalool and linalyl acetate. Our current batch is just shy of 42% linalool and 39% linalyl acetate. Lavender Maillette is quite simply…exceptional for relaxation.
