Historical notes:

Did you know that citrus fruits may have been the famous ‘golden apples’ in Greek mythology? It is said that citruses were the dowry of Zeus’s bride, Hera, who kept them hidden in the gardens at the ‘western end of earth’ (possibly Atlas Mountains in Morocco). They were guarded by three nymphs - Hesperides (‘Daughters of Evening’).  Each nymph safeguarded her own fruit: Aigle tended the citron, Arethusa the lemon and Hesperethusa the orange. In his eleventh labour Heracles stole the fruits – referred to as the ‘golden apples’ – from the garden and gave them to mankind. Is it possible the mandarins were there too…?

Perfumery note: top

Aroma: our mandarin essential oil has a very fruity aroma – it will make your mouth water and it will bring a smile to your face! It is the sweetest of the citrus peel oils and it smells just like a torn mandarin rind – fresh and citrusy, refreshing and uplifting.  It retains the sweet fruity characteristic as the dry out progresses.
