Our lavender essential oil comes directly from farmers’ cooperatives in Haute-Provence and is always P.D.O. certified. P.D.O. stands for Protected Designation of Origin. That preserves the purity of the ingredients, a commitment we cherish at L’OCCITANE.
We source our essential oil of P.D.O. fine lavender from Haute-Provence directly from farmers' cooperatives in Sault and the surrounding area.
The A.O.C. label (now the P.D.O. label) was created in 1981 to protect French products in the face of competition from foreign sources. It guarantees a very high-quality product. It is important not to confuse fine lavender with lavandin, which is a hybrid made by crossing lavandula officinalis with spike lavender.
Brightened by the radiant freshness of citrus fruits, the Lavender Eau de Cologne is a fresh and light fragrance with a lingering, captivating, woody musky trail.
