Neroli oil derives from bitter orange trees and naturally gives off an aroma that is a blend of spice, citrus, and floral scents. Marie Anne de la Trémoille, the princess de Ursins, is said to have popularized neroli in the 1800s after she infused her gloves and baths with bitter orange essence. Since she was the princess of Nerola, Italy, the scent was given the "neroli" title.
At once full-bodied and light, neroli is one of the most unisex and versatile scents out there. The orange notes brighten the scent, which aligns with the overall vibe of summer—but neroli's zesty edge also allows it to easily transition into a fall scent that's cool, sexy, and quite relaxing.
