Description of Orange Oil Bitter Brazil
Orange Oil Bitter is cold-pressed from the fragrant peels of Citrus aurantium fruits, which are mainly produced in Brazil. The botanical is endemic to Southeast Asia but rapidly spread to many regions throughout Europe, Africa, and the Americas during the early 20th century after becoming popularized as an ingredient within fragrance. Orange Oil Bitter is also a key component of many different orange liqueur and soft drink flavors, as it imparts a rich body and bittersweet twist to traditional sweet orange profiles. In perfume, Orange Oil Bitter pairs well with lavender, rosemary, and clary sage.
Aroma & Flavor of Orange Oil Bitter Brazil
Aroma is intensely fresh and rich, with a bittersweet top note that imparts a unique “dry” quality to citrus perfumes. As time goes on, the aroma becomes sweeter and more floral, with pungent undertones of ripened citrus fruit. The flavor of this oil is similarly fresh and bittersweet, retaining a distinctive floral quality that separates it from other citrus oils.
