    Smells GREAT! This is 100% PURE Lavandula Officinalis. It smells exactly the way it’s supposed to. This is REAL lavender.I see some reviewers complaining that it smells “watered-down”, altered, or different from other oils they’ve bought. Be sure to check that you weren’t buying a lavender hybrid in the past, known as Lavandula x hybrida, or LAVANDIN. It’s commonly marketed and sold as real lavender, as companies can claim it is a “type of lavender”. While it IS technically a TYPE of lavender, it differs from real lavender in a few ways.Most Notably: the scent of LAVANDIN is much stronger than that of REAL lavender. It’s medicinal properties vary somewhat as well. REAL lavender can be used to help heal burns, while the hybrid can actually worsen them!LAVANDIN is used because it’s easier to grow, and therefore cheaper. NOW Lavender oil is NOT the hybrid, but the real thing. I believe it is a superior product, but for those of you that prefer the stronger smell, look for Lavandula Hybrida, or “Lavandin” instead. If a bottle doesn’t list which “breed” it is, you can’t be certain which type it is. Maybe you could call whichever company that is selling it and find out? I would hope they would tell you, at least! NOW, however, actually lists the name on the bottle as being Lavandula Officinalis, or “official lavender”. It can also be called Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula vera, among other names. There are dozens of different species of Lavender, so you may come across other names as well. The way to tell the difference between real and hybrid is this: if there is an “x” between genus and species names (Lavandula x intermedia) then it’s a hybrid, and should smell stronger. Hope that helps. :D

    lavender galore I use this product all the time and it is good for many uses, but was surprised that the larger bottle does not come with a dropper. This is why I didn’t give it a five star. Pouring it directly from the bottle can cause a lot of waste from pouring too much and spilling it.

    Good Oil Good quality.If you mix a few drops of this with olive oil, it’s a great anti-wrinkle face oil.
