Natural lavender oil is a top-note and as such tends to be quite fleeting. Artificial lavender can last longer but tends to smell synthetic - I wanted to create something that would feel natural and last well too.
Part of the answer is lavender absolute - longer lasting than the essential oil and even more true to the scent of fresh lavender, the amount in the blend is limited by its strongly green colour. Together with some top-quality lavender essential oil, in Lasting Lavender this is supported with rose geranium, crushed violet leaves and a little rosemary.
A complex base of white musks, ambergris and subtle woods with some special ingredients to improve longevity keep it fresh, feminine and floral for hours and hours, staying lovely even after the lavender starts to fade.
