The Bitter Orange tree (Citrus Aurantium Amara) is thought to be a hybrid between the pomelo citrus fruit and mandarin. It is native to Asia and is now grown worldwide including in the Mediterranean, North Africa, and the Americas, with Italy leading worldwide cultivation. The essential oil extracted from the peel of the fruit by cold pressing the rind.


Bitter Orange Essential Oil has a complex aroma that is both citrusy and bitter. It is often described as being similar to sweet orange oil, but with a more herbal and floral undertone. 


Bitter Orange Essential Oil has a wide range of uses, including:

  • Aromatherapy: Commonly used in aromatherapy, where it is believed to invoke feelings of freshness, cleanliness, and energy.

Its versatility allows for creative blending, contributing to a wide variety of captivating fragrances. Perfumers leverage this to create fragrances that evoke a sense of optimism, vitality, or a carefree spirit.

  • Top Note: The primary use of bitter orange essential oil lies in its contribution as a top note. Due to its volatile nature, the oil evaporates quickly, after creating the initial impression of the perfume. Bitter orange essential oil's citrusy and slightly bitter aroma adds a refreshing, invigorating, and uplifting character to the fragrance. This initial burst can set the stage for the middle and base notes to unfold.

  • Balancing and Sharpening: Perfumers often use bitter orange essential oil to sharpen" a fragrance. The oil's distinct bitterness can help cut through heavier floral or oriental notes, adding a touch of complexity and preventing the perfume from becoming overly sweet or cloying. It can also balance out other citrus notes, creating a more nuanced and interesting citrus accord.

  • Evoking Specific Emotions: The aroma of bitter orange essential oil is often associated with feelings of freshness, cleanliness, and energy. Perfumers leverage this to create fragrances that evoke a sense of optimism, vitality, or a carefree spirit.

  • Blending Versatility: Bitter orange essential oil blends exceptionally well with a wide range of other perfume ingredients. Here are some common pairings:

    • Citrus: It complements other citrus notes like lemon, grapefruit, or bergamot, creating a bright and cheerful citrus accord.

    • Florals: Bitter orange essential oil can add a touch of zest to floral notes like jasmine, rose, or neroli, preventing them from becoming overly powdery or sweet.

    • Woody and Oriental Notes: A small amount of bitter orange essential oil can add a touch of freshness and lift to heavier woody or oriental base notes, creating a more dynamic contrast.

  • Personal Care: Bitter Orange Essential Oil is used in soaps, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, aftershaves, and other skin and hair care products not only for its fragrance, but also for its potential nourishing benefits.
