Lavender Fields Forever

The warm weather in England this Summer has brought forward our lavender harvest by a few weeks. Yesterday's visit to the Cotswolds' fields proved not only timely, but offered a rare opportunity to compare the olfactory profiles of some 20+ varieties of living flowers. In addition to the more common agrestic, green and camphorous/medicinal notes associated with the Lavandula genus, I was delighted to discover in some species very fleeting fruity top notes including in one variety, banana.
