Lavandula angustifolia.

From Bulgaria.

Bulgarian Lavender

Bulgarian lavender is typically drawn from a cultivar of Lavandula angustifolia.

Key cultivars of Lavandula angustifolia in Bulgaria are Hemus, Druzhba, Sevtopolis, Yubileinа, Raya, and Hebar.

The oil generally contains less camphor compared to others and contains a slightly deeper scent with fine herbaceous notes. This results in an aroma that it less woody and an agreeable ingredient for use in perfume.


Farming Lavender in Bulgaria

In 2018, Bulgaria surpassed France as the world's largest grower and supplier of lavender essential oil. This has been largely due to advancements in propagation techniques and cultivar improvement and research programmes.

The neighbouring Black Sea provides a moderated climate while the Balkan Mountain Range, passing though the country, protects cultivated plants from the harsh northerly winds.

Bulgarian lavender is generally grown in lower regions, such as Shumen and Dobrich, which makes it easier to cultivate compared to high-altitude lavender in France.
