Neroli and beyond
Neroli oil is an essential oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree. Its scent is sweet, honeyed and somewhat metallic with green and spicy facets. Orange blossom is also extracted from the same blossom and both extracts are extensively used in perfumery.
According to the most durable of legends, neroli oil derives its moniker from Nerola in Lazio, Italy, and particularly its 17th-century princess, Anna Marie-Anne de La Trémoille, wife of Prince Flavio Orsini. It was she who introduced the essence of bitter orange as a fashionable fragrance by using it to perfume both her gloves and her bath water. She loved the fragrance so much that she became known as “Princess Nerola.”
