The oil produced from steam distilling the leaves possesses a powerful, fresh, pungent green-leafy, lemon-lime/yuzu type of aroma-a very distinct bouquet. As the initial impact of the top-notes softens, a softer, sweeter, balsamic, juicy citrus bouquet comes to the forefront-(at approximately 45 minutes into the dry-out)and intermingles with the greener leafy notes. Occasionally one may also detect a delicate coumarinic note arising in the later stages of the dry-out.

In perfumery could be used in geographical essences, culinary perfumes, colognes, chypres, fougeres, green accords, tropical bouquets
