Neroli is one of the shining stars of the perfume industry, and has been for the past 500 years since it became a popular simple fragrance in Venice. This oil has a dry, heady scent, and is not so sweet as Neroli from Sicily or Florida. It is thought to be one of the secret flavouring agents in Coca Cola.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
