    Our opinion

    The difference between Petitgrain and Neroli is mainly in the olfaction, in terms of note and intensity. Petitgrain is also less exclusive and can be combined very easily with other essential oils, such as fine lavender.

    The most renowned quality comes from Paraguay. The "organic" certification indicates that it is produced by the Amerindians of this country, who can thus live decently from their environment and maintain it.
