Aroma is superb
I do lots of house sitting, and so sleep in many different beds, I mainly use the lavender On my pillow and in the room for a relaxed night.
I already have NZ Lavender and this one is quite different. I prefer this one. Not sharp
Has a really great smell, which is good because lavender oil can sometimes be a hit or miss
Excellent scent and consistency
