Overview
More
The Distillery Bleu Provence is a family business bought by Christine and Philippe Soguel in 1994. Wanting to support this industrial heritage of Nyons, and enter into modernity, the Company chooses innovation in order to continue the tradition of cultivation and distillation of lavender and aromatic plants in Drôme Provençale. An interpretative centre of 150m² devoted to lavender and aromatic plants, presents landscapes, the botany, the cultivation, the history and the distillation. Our guides will show you it thanks to two guided tours (1h00) and two workshops (2h00), certified Secrets de Terroirs – Drôme Provençale and Tistra.In 2011, a shop about essential oils and well-being opened and a herb bistrot.

Nice working distillery with a shop and museum. You can take a guided tour or you can, as we did, take a tour with a tablet on your own pace. They still distille the lavender on the spot.

The distillery Bleu de Provence is one of my favorite places. First, it smells wonderful. When they are distilling, you can smell it from quite a distance! Second, this is a small producer boutique and they generally sell their products such as lavender buds and...More

This distillery produces fragrances, oils, and soaps focusing on lavender and aromatic plants from Provence. The extensive selection makes it very easy to buy little gifts for family and friends.

Chance to visit a small herb distillery and buy all kinds of essentials oils, with a focus on lavender, but also others (calendula, thyme, etc.). An aromatherapist's delight! Right on the Promenade de la Digue, right near the center of Nyons.

It is a lovely little place that gives you a real insight into the fragrance industry. What starts with a humble shrub becomes the world most wanted scents. A rummage through the shop leaves you speechless. The abundance of products is both inspiring and invigorating....More
