Citrus aurantium - Tunisia
Monara’s extraordinary True Neroli essential oil from Tunisia starts with a very etheric, uplifting, fresh, intense, lush white flowery aroma, then combines woody undertones with a delicious orange top note.
Highly sought after for its delightful high notes, Neroli (sometimes referred to as Orange Flower oil) has a magnificent sweet aroma. Interestingly, Neroli is derived from the same tree as Petitgrain. The flowers of the tree are cultivated to produce Neroli while the leaves and twigs are used to make Petitgrain.
Quick fact: Neroli oil was named in the 1680s when the princess of Nerole perfumed her gloves, stationery, shawls, and bathwater with the scent. For centuries, Neroli has been added to cosmetic products, colognes, and perfumes.
