The aromatic characteristics of Mandarin Petitgrain are highly variable in my experience.
Over the years I have procured samples from S. Africa, Egypt, and Italy and all of them shared a delightful fruity/floral undertone but often displayed a rather uninteresting green slightly rubbery topnote. The Corsican organic Mandarin Petitgrain though immediately opens up with a fresh, tangy, intensely sweet, rich fruity-floral note. It has exceptional radiation. A clear sweet fruity, green, tangy note remains deep into the dry-out


In natural perfumery it is used in colognes, fougeres, chypres, oriental bouquets, tropical perfumes, high class florals, neroli bases, forest notes, geographical perfumes; culinary perfumes
