UseLavandin absolute has a spicy lavender scent, with sweet undertones of hay. The smell is medium strong, making a dilution is therefore usually not necessary. Typical use is in fougere and lavender accords. You usually use between 1% and 10% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It combines well with other spicy scents, as well as wood and citrus. It is mainly seen in perfumes as a heart or base note, but is also definitely active in the top. It is stable in many products including soap. Some consider lavandin to be a kind of cheap lavender version, much like a synthetic rose oil. That's not really fair to the lavandin, it's really a different substance with different applications. For example, you can use the lavender extracts if you are looking for a more floral scent and the lavandin for a spicier scent. Keep cool, dry, dark and out of reach of children.
