Grapefruit Flower Oil

Posted: October 5, 2011

Berje Inc.’s grapefruit flower oil (CAS# 90045-43-5, also registered as 8016-20-4) is from a North African natural essential oil produced from the blossom of the grapefruit tree (Citrus paradisi). Similar to neroli, but with distinct nuances, the yellow- to amber-colored oil features a sweet, floral and honeysucklelike aroma and blends well with citrus oils, floral absolutes, and fruity components. It has applications in both fine fragrance and flavor, with the aromatic strength to stand alone, but also add a complex floral note to specialty flavors and men’s and women’s fine fragrances.
