CAUTIONS: Absolutes should be avoided during pregnancy and never ingested (taken internally) and should be kept away from children and pets. No medicinal claims are made for this product and the notes above are provided for guidance purposes only. Absolute Oils are powerful plant extracts and should be used with extreme caution. You should seek the advice of a qualified practitioner should you be in any doubt.

It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance – particularly the rare and exotic notes – become lost.

Neroli is usually purchased as a rather expensive essential oil. This absolute is extracted from the unopened flower bud of the Orange Blossom exclusively using a solvent and as such none of the delicate and tiny quantities of perfume contained within the bud is detroyed by the heat process used in extracting the essential oil. The resultant absolute is rich, luxurious, thicker and much more lingering than the essential oil.


Considered an essential constituent in around 38% of perfumes today, this is a must for any perfume house to own and include in its floral range

Neroli oil was discovered in the late 1600s and it was said to be named after Anne-Marie, Princess of Neroli, in Italy. The Roman god Jupiter gave an orange to his sister Juno when he married her, and brides have carried the blossom to calm nerves ever since. By the end of the 17th century, Anne Marie Orsini, duchess of Bracciano and princess of Nerola, introduced the essence of bitter orange tree as a fashionable fragrance by using it to perfume her gloves and her bathwater. Since then, the name of Neroli has been used to describe this essence.
