The bitter orange tree's exquisite white blossoms, which have a beautiful orange fragrance, are used in the production of perfume ingredients such as neroli and orange blossom.
Orange blossom, with its distinct citrusy freshness, is commonly found in the top notes of chypre and floral oriental fragrances. Explore a variety of perfumes with a robust orange blossom scent in the list below.
But first, let's delve into the essential oils derived from bitter orange blossoms.
Essential Oil of Neroli
Extracted through steam distillation of the white blossoms from the bitter orange tree, neroli essential oil has a strong orange fragrance. It's a premium ingredient due to the large number of petals required to produce a small amount of oil. Neroli boasts a honey-sweet floral fragrance with a touch of citrus, extending the life of other scents it's combined with due to its fixative properties.
Aromatherapy Oil of Orange Blossoms
Orange blossom oil, with a sweeter, citrusy scent, is produced through solvent extraction of the fresh flowers. This oil evokes the authentic aroma experienced when orange blossoms bloom on the trees.
