Mandarin orange is a juicy citrus fruit also known as mandarin or mandarin. The botanical name for this tropical and sub-tropical plant is Citrus reticulate. Mandarins originate from China, where they have been historically regarded as a symbol of good fortune, having a significant sacral meaning in Chinese New Year celebrations.
Mandarin essential oil is equally valued in perfume manufacturing where it makes great addition to floral compositions and colognes. Mandarin essential oil is distinguished in a fragrant composition by its sensual and floral, neroli-like trail. This uplifting and sensual scent blends nicely with other citrus oils as well as with spice oils such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. In the terms of aroma, it is very sweet, fruity and citrusy with a light floral undertone. The scent is very relaxing and calming, and suitable for mystical fantasy fragrances. The smell of mandarin orange dominates the top notes in a gourmet floral composition of Little Joya and the Hotel Platter.
