Orange Bitter essential oil comes from cold pressed peels of the non-edible fruit of Citrus aurantium, the same tree Neroli essential oil and Orange Blossom Absolute (from flowers) and Petitgrain Bigarade (from the leaves) originate from. Orange Bitter is used in aromatherapy the same as Orange Sweet.
Orange Bitter is a radiant top note that articulates Orange Sweet and Grapefruit aromas with finesse. In perfumery Orange Bitter essential oil adds a tart fresh citrus top note that can be found in many designer perfume creations by Hermes, Van Cleef & Arpels, Chanel, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Fragonard, Cartier, Dior, Lancome, Lagerfeld, Atelier, and Chopard. This is a must have staple essential oil in a perfumers repertoire of aromatics.
