The french Mediterranean landscape of Provence has fragrant flowers blooming, lavender fields and mountain vistas. A joy for travelers to photograph or experience. Lavender or Lanvedula angustifolia as it is also called, come from the Latin word lavare which means to wash. It's fragrance has been used for centuries as perfume and is a key component in many soaps. Places like the town of Grasse in the south of France Alpes Maritimes region are famous for their fragrance industry, when driving through the area one can smell the various compounds that are used to make some of the world's best perfumes. Even now, some years later, every time I smell Lavender it take me back to the perfume factory tour I did in Grasse, France.
