Adam Michael has this to say “Petitgrain mandarinier essential oil s a truly unique aromatic experience. This material is produced by steam distilling the leaves of the Citrus reticulata tree, yellow in colour and the fruit of which produces mandarin essential oil in its varying forms. The aroma is bitter mandarin fruity, very fruit-leathery, with shoe polish notes. The heart note smells of new leather, salted cashew nuts, mandarins, with animalic and sweet grape undertones.
The composition of this leaf essential oil consists largely of monoterpenes, most of which are in trace amounts, however p-cymene, limonene and y-terpinene can account for more than 40% of the essential oil. Another major constituent is a sesquiterpene known as – methyl N-methyl anthranilate, present at approximately 40% of the oil and this isolated constituent has a full bodied fruit aroma.”
Arctander has this to say “Mandarin Petitgrain Oil is a dark olive-green liquid of intensely sweet, rich, deep-fruity, grape-like, floral odor in which a distinct mustiness is characteristic, and a plum-grape-like fruity undertone lends a peculiar and very powerful, perfumery sweetness. For perfumes, the mandarin petitgrain oil is equally interesting, e.g in fougeres, Oriental bases, chypres and in modern aldehydic perfume types. It lends excellent body and undertone in neroli bases, and it is worthwhile noting that methyl-N-methylanthranilate does not discolor or form condensation products in the presence of aldehydes (compare: Schiff’s bases with methyl anthranilate). In pine fragrances, the mandarin petitgrain oil produces a most attractive effect of natural forest sweetness with oakmoss, pine needle oils, fir needle absolute, coumarin derivatives, aldehydes, etc.”

So I’m wondering how it will develop. Amazing juicy Green mandarin at first, but sharper, which in general is no harm, because it can bring interesting results. I added jasmine and orange … it could be a delicacy. I can also imagine with some woods, frankincense, maybe patchouli. I think anything else.

My goodness this stuff is potent, full of fresh citrus greens and also a fruity sweetness. I’m loving it.

This is quite an essential oil. This oil has something of a dark character it is potent and refined. It otherwise exhibits all the olfactory characteristics that one would expect from a top quality Petitgrain Mandarinier EO.
