Product Overview

Our exceptional Neroli essential oil from Tunisia opens with a very etheric, uplifting, fresh, sweet, intense, voluptuous white floral aroma with green and rather unusual, fruity-jammy backnotes; it is our most seductive Neroli, possessing unmistakable yet demure, come-hither indole nuances. Arctander points out that Neroli essential oil is probably one of the most frequently used florals in perfume compounding[1], cost not withstanding due to the fact that it takes 2.2 pounds (1 kilo) of blossoms to yield only 1 gram (about 1 milliliter) of essential oil.[2] It is found in the top notes of some of the most famous classic perfumes.[3] Precious oils like Neroli are the most likely to be adulterated, therefore we now verify the chemical analysis through a third-party testing lab.

The blossoms come from the Bitter Orange tree (Citrus aurantium var. amara), a resilient evergreen that belongs to the Rutaceae family; these are the same flowers that are used to extract Orange Blossom Absolute. The Bitter Orange is also the source of expressed oil from the peel, and Petitgrain essential oil steam distilled from the leaves. Two constituents present in Neroli in minute amounts are worth noting: N-methyl anthranilate - with its sweet and fruity nuances, and indole - a compound found in animal feces that perfumers use in imperceptible amounts for its erotic nature.[4] Flower oils truly represent the highest expression of beauty the botanical world has to offer.

Orange Blossom (Neroli) was first introduced as a fashionable scent near the end of the 17th century by Marie-Anne de La Trémoille, Duchess of Bracciano, later known as the Princess of Nerola. She loved the scent of orange blossoms and used it to perfume her clothes, gloves and bath; since then, this beautiful essence has been known as Neroli.[5] Today Neroli essential oil is widely used in perfumery and skincare, particularly in formulations for dry and mature skin. The comforting aroma is lovely in nighttime sprays, relaxing baths, massage blends and diffusers.

wonderful

Rating

neroli has a wonderful scent on its own, and 10% or less solutions in ethanol work fine, otherwise it is too concentrated and 'noisy'. thank you, EB for this neroli and for a fair price.
