The True Story
"I have looked for him in the smell of freshly cut plants, in the memory of the distillers gestures and in the beauty of the alchemy that goes with them. Lavender is distilled in Provence in big copper stills, these are passed on from father to son, and the powerful scent of freshly cut lavender mixes with the peppery and nutmeg scents of burning wood. In this, I recognize my Provence, its fierceness, its mysteries, its light. It’s this whole world of scents and colors that I reproduced in L’Occitan."
