Diva lavender production is recent. Its fragrance is more camphorated than that of baby corn, although the rate of camphor remains consistent with that of lavender. Its rate of linalyl acetate is very high, often above 45%. Given its resistance to disease, this production is growing and currently reaches 6 tons. The SCA3P produces 3 tons.
Most often, Diva lavender is used in blends with other clonal lavenders, and the perfumery sector is the main consumer.
