Description of Petitgrain Oil S.A.
Petitgrain Oil is steam-distilled from the leaves and twigs of the Citrus aurantium tree, which grows abundantly throughout the tropical and semi-tropical regions of South America. Paraguay is the most well-known producer of petitgrain due to the nation's consistent quality, as well as its widespread availability within the growing region. The aroma of Petitgrain Oil is fresh and sweet, with a refreshingly floral top note that gives way to woody and herbaceous undertones. In fragrance, petitgrain is often used to balance citrus or floral colognes. It is also used in flavor work, where it imparts a subtle sharpness to sweet profiles such as honey, apricot, and peach.
