Neroli Essential Oil, (True), Tunisia is a sweet floral aromatic oil also referred to as Orange Flower oil. Highly sought for its high notes, various factors contribute to the excessive cost. First, gathering the flowers is labor intensive and they must be distilled immediately after harvest. In addition the yield is less than half a percent. The Neroli oil does not keep well and has a short shelf life compared to other florals, like Jasmine. There are significant variations in the aroma of Neroli depending on the country of origin and the distillation methods and procedures. Ideally the flowers alone are distilled very near or at the point of harvest. France, Italy and Tunisia are the leading producers of Neroli in terms of both quality and volume.
