The aroma of our Egyptian Neroli gives the sense of walking through orange groves at night. It has a voluptuousness that combines sweet, white floral with a slight powdery note for an aroma that is soft, yet full-bodied and intoxicating.
The blossoms come from the bitter orange tree, a resilient evergreen which belongs to the Rutaceae family, and are the same flowers that are used to extract Orange Blossom Absolute. Oils and absolutes are produced using very different processes, rendering oils with somewhat different aromas and textures. The absolute is solvent extracted, amber-colored and more viscous than Neroli essential oil, which tends to be lighter in color with a more delicate aroma.
Neroli was first introduced as a fashionable scent near the end of the 17th century by the duchess of Bracciano, princess of Nerola. It was said that she used it to perfume her gloves and in the water used for bathing, and this beautiful oil has been known as Neroli ever since. Today Neroli essential oil is widely used in perfumery, skincare, and in blends to help promote relaxation and relieve stress.
If you are unsure of which Neroli to order, we offer a sampler pack so you can experience each one prior to committing to purchase.

- Not as delicate as organic Neroli Review by L2013
- This Neroli from Egypt is okay, but not as fine or delicate as the organic version. This is fine in a blend though I wouldn't wear it on its own like the organic Neroli. I say spend a little more and splurge on the organic. (Posted on 2/14/13)
