Lavender Essential Oil – L. angustifolia Avice Hill


Lavender cultivar Avice Hill produces an essential oil balanced in favour of the ester compounds, up to 50% of the total chemistry, and away from the alcohols which together, and including, the signature lavender compound linalool do not exceed 25%.  The refined fruity floral sweetness typical of high levels of linalyl acetate (on average above 40%) is subtly tempered by a herbaceous & woody undertow contributed by a slightly elevated level of terpen-4-ol  (3.5-5.5%) and a corollary of deeper sweet compounds present in higher than average concentrations, cis-ß-ocimene (7-13%), trans-ß-ocimene (2.5-6%), ß – caryophyllene (3-4%), 3-octanone (2-3%)and α –santalene (0.8). Together these compounds hint at a complexity of musk, honey, pepper, and wood.   This oil is sweet but has complex back notes. Not classic lavender.
