Mandarin Red Super Concentrate E.O
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.
How is this produced Adam ?
Concentrated citrus oils are obtained by fractionation via vacuum distillation. This one-time distillation process results in the terpenes content of the essential oil being reduced so as to obtain a concentrated product that equates to ¼ of the initial essential oil amount (for a 4 fold material).
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.”
