Adam Michael has this to say “This is not your regular red mandarin essential oil offered online by every tom, dick and harry. This is Italian four fold Mandarin oil, a material that is super concentrated and bursting from the seems with sweet, wet, thirst quenching juicy fruity qualities throughout, the ultimate material that provides a master class lesson for what keyword descriptors such as refreshing, juicy, fruity and tangy can all actually mean. I have been involved with Hermitage since I was 24 years old, I am now 38 (November 22nd 2019), I have evaluated easily a thousand plus naturals and I say with confidence, this is the greatest mandarin oil in existence and arguably the most high impact, most “WOW” citrus material of all time. I adore green mandarin and I thought citrus oils did not get better than the Japanese yuzu experience. Yet this red mandarin is a citrus game changer for me and I suspect you. Without question I love this citrus oil more than any other. Yes this is a citrus and not some complex aromatic beast like wild vetivers or ouds but so many businesses online neglect getting citrus oils right, and its embarrassing as they are low cost and the basics that every online reseller should be getting spot on.

I encountered this material I think around March or April time this year. The actual boss from arguably the most famous and most loved Grasse based French company came to visit me at my home. Myself and Eleonora sat around our kitchen table with this big boss and his entourage. He showed me this concentrated mandarin oil and it was instant love. I could not stop sniffing this bottle and my mind was working overtime, I realised so quickly that not only did it make what we carry look so boring and dull, it also made me realise I had to get it.

Now the beauty of living in Tuscany is this, unlike all my online competition, I get to bypass all the official distributors these world class Italian citrus producers use, and as such, I was able to buy this direct. This means my pricing has a real unfair advantage over my online competition, which is good news for you and for us.

If you are a hobbyist, a perfumer or an aromatherapist I encourage you to think beyond what a material should cost and instead look at this as an experience, as an education, a treat, as a way of being able to access and enjoy arguably the best mandarin oil in the world.

Great for adding increased richness to citrus materials, especially single fold orange oils, useful for building neroli accords, pairs very nicely with champaca, bergamot, peach, osmanthus and ylang ylang oils. Also offers interesting effects when added to aldehydes.”

    This material is super concentrated, it is so concentrated that it feels candy like and slightly liquorice, as a result it looses a little the sense of naturalness and I would not describe it as juicy or fresh mandarin so much. You also get a slightly minty after smell which is more natural and I like it. I did not like it in the beginning but I start liking it now a bit more. It is unique.
    The downside with this material and a few other from hermitage oils is that they expire very soon. This mandarin for example expires in 10 months and I am not sure i will be able to use it, sometime they might be weak etc.
    It would significantly help customers if expiry and production date is advertised with the material on the web. This will offer exeptional customer service in my opinion. High quality of a product of course depends on the material itself but 50% is down to the freshness of the material as well, in my opinion.

    Hello Apostolos, we owe you a sorry and thank you as your comment made us realise that the expiry date on all bottles for this product (batch n. RSC001) is incorrect. The correct expiry date is end of March 2021 so 31/03/21. Therefore, the writeup here above will be amended to inform all who have purchased this of our mistake. On a general note, however, it is important to note when handling aromatic materials that not all essential oils age at the same rate, nor well. Citruses for example age quite fast, expiring within a year or less especially when their terpenes content is high. Other materials instead (especially base note materials) tend to improve with age (think patchouli for instance). That is why expiry dates can vary greatly reflecting the unique characteristics of the oils. On a final note, the shelf life of citrus materials can improve keeping the oil out direct light and heat sources, and it can be further increased by storing the citrus oil in the fridge. Thank you, Adam 🙂

    This smells unmistakably like a fresh, very juicy Mandarin. Just smelling it from the bottle is a treat! It’s a bit difficult to work with since Mandarin doesn’t necessarily blend as well with other oils like Bergamot, Orange or Lemon does (not in a scientific way but when creating good-smelling perfume). Nevertheless a high-quality material, I would recommend it!
