“...Aroma strongly fragrant. Monsieur Maillet was a respected small farmer from the Valensole, who had 'judged oils derived from plants which he had selected continuously for the last thirty years’ (Paulet, 1959). It is highly probably that 'Maillette' was one of his own selections and not from Pierre Grosso as stated by Tucker (1985). It appeared to be quite widely planted in the 1950s."
