A Scent To Calm The Soul
Lavender has long been cherished for its calming, refreshing, and alluring properties. The flower dates all the way back to ancient cultures like the Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans, who valued its scent as well as antiseptic and healing qualities.
From skincare to haircare and, of course, perfume, lavender’s many coveted properties make it the perfect ingredient for a wide range of beauty products. Even today, its popularity as an essential oil shows no signs of waning. It doesn’t matter where you shop for lavender perfume, you’re sure to find it among the best-sellers. And for good reason – lavender perfume oil has countless benefits for the modern person, including anxiety relief, sleep promotion, and a whole host of aromatherapy benefits.
What does lavender smell like?
Lavender, especially English lavender, has a very recognizable smell. But despite this distinctive quality, it doesn’t smell overpowering or pungent. Instead, it carries a more natural sort of delicate sweetness along with herbal, balsamic, and woody nuances. When mixed with certain concoctions, it might take on soft, powdery, or spicy notes as well.
Modern lavender fragrances are highly androgynous. Case in point – we see the floral note being lightly used in more ‘feminine’ scents, but also in plenty of men’s perfumes and colognes, where it adds a much-welcome sense of woodsy freshness. It pairs well with many notes, too. Vanilla, for example, can add a touch of sweetness to the powerful scent of lavender, softening its powerful aroma. On the other hand, traditional florals such as rose and jasmine provide a softer character to any lavender perfume, while woodsy notes like vetiver, oak moss, and patchouli deliver an earthy, sillage-boosting edge.
