Neroli, Egypt - Organic
Our organic Neroli from Egypt is our most complex Neroli. It combines lucious white-floral notes with rich, slightly smoky undertones. It is tenacious and adds a unique depth to your floral blends.
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.

- Most Amazing and Unique Neroli Review by Brady
- This Neroli has such an amazing and unique character to it. It seems like most Neroli you find is very one dimensional and very floral, this Neroli on the other hand is very multi-dimensional. Just like its described, it is very deep, with base layers all the way up to very high florals. Yet embedded deep within is almost a candy like sweetness with citrus highlights. I am super impressed and to be honest didn't know what to think when i first smelt it. This was because i have only smelt the basic Neroli that doesn't truly match up to this superb oil.

- The best version of Neroli EB carries Review by L2013
- This Neroli is super delicate and beautiful. It's suitable in a blend and it's also good on its own. Mix a few drops in a small amount of pure organic jojoba oil and rub on pulse points. A great, simple perfume. (Posted on 2/14/13)
