Provence, South of France. Immense fields of lavender spreading around their unique, fresh perfume. Captured into natural oils or dried blossoms, that perfume can last for years into a drawer full of linen and bath towels. To me, lavender has always been the scent of my grand-mother super-white and richly embroidered linen, hanging in the courtyard to dry in the sun. For those who have been in Provence, that scent is the scent of the whole region. For those who dream of going there, sooner or later, the only chance to breathe a bit of the local atmosphere and poetry is buying a lavender-scented little ‘something’.
But take care, there are a lot of imitations and ‘fake French lavender’ around.
For those who like to paint their nails with this mysterious and elegant color, there’s the Kiko Nail Lacquer in the shade #337 Periwinkle Violet.
The Pupa Princess Palette will give beauty queens and princesses that sophisticated lavender touch on the eyes that looks elegant and extremely beautiful on everybody.
