Lavender Angustifolia – for it’s softer, sweeter scent, English lavender is not from England at all but from southern Europe, where it is cultivated for the perfume industry. The perfume is comfortingly familiar, fresh, clean, floral and soft and it blends with most other oils. Tarquin Lavender is Australian made in Toowoomba, south east Queensland using Lavender from local Australian farms.
