Our Orange Blossom Absolute (Neroli Absolute) from France is a beautiful benign hexane free extraction with a very tenacious and intensely rich, warm, floral and sweet aroma all rolled into one, complimented by a brightly green, soft fruity floral honeyed white floral accord. A discerning perfumer specialty oil! Adds decadence, sensuality, and opulence to Chypre, Citrus, Floral and Oriental fine perfume accords. This exceptionally fine Orange Blossom Absolute has an intricate depth of character closest to the fresh orange flower.
The undiluted aroma is deep, rich, complex and powerful. In order to fully appreciate this complex oil revered by master perfumers we recommend using in low proportions. Lower concentrations allow this remarkable absolute to unfold and expose a warm and radiant, provocative and sultry sweet floral heart note that beckons to be embraced.
Orange Blossom Absolute is benign solvent extracted fresh flowers from the Bitter Orange Tree (Citrus aurantium). Flowers from this tree when steam distilled produce Neroli essential oil. Different extraction methods create vast aromatic differences, although Neroli and Orange Blossom do complement each other harmoniously in blends.
This Orange Blossom Absolute has a reddish-orange to brown mobile syrup-like consistency. It is easier to work with when liquefied to a less viscous consistency. Gently warm to liquefy.
