This absolute is relatively thick. I don’t know if it’s due to its dark colour, but for me it smells very dark, dense and deep. It’s far from the scent of lavender essential oil and it's rather difficult to describe. It’s aromatic, with herbaceous notes. It’s green but floral (not in the usual floral way though). It’s an herbal floral, dark floral. It has a demanding and reflective smell. I imagine a field of wild flowers with a rustic mix of spicy and green notes. I have a sensation of sticky sap or nectar spilling from those wild flowers. It is one of the most intriguing scents I’ve smelled. It is calming and complex. I love it so much, and would rate it more than 5 stars.

I was so happy to have this particular and precious absolute made available at such a fair price. It is a dream of a substance, both to behold and to smell. There is a comforting completeness to this lavender, which is not present in even the finest EOs. Both appearance and consistency are beautiful, and unlike many other abs, this is easy to work with. Adding lavender ab to perfume brings a roundedness to the finished product that simply cannot be achieved with any lavender EO. Truly dreamy.

A UNIQUE LAVENDER PRODUCT !
We purchased this absolute as an experiment in order to add some depth & interest to our lavender soap blend - we were not disappointed! Customers are loving the soap, it is currently one of our best sellers.

Woodsy lav. abs.
This is a wonderful absolute, slighty thicker than the essential oil and with a grass-green tint. It has a coniferous, mossy, and coumarinic scent, "greener" than the e.o. and with not as pronounced a floral note. Toward the finish it there's a lingering, subtle esteric, "whiskey" element. Very masculine in a relaxed, reassuring manner. Thanks, Camden-Grey for making this available.

I will definitely be ordering more of this lovely AB. I like the softness to it, no harshness in this one at all. Some I've used have a chemical effect to my nose I just couldn't enjoy. The color is a dirty purple, but in liquid dilution doesn't seem show. Not sure how it would color up in a lotion, soap or balm though. I'm certainly coming back for more of this one.
