Van Cleef & Arpels Néroli Amara

Nicknamed “the perfumer’s tree“, bitter orange issues several essential fragrance ingredients, including neroli. This is named after Anne-Marie Orsini, Duchess of Bracciano in the 17th century, known as Princess of Nerola, a town near Rome. Totally in love with the perfume of Amara orange blossom (bitter orange), she began using it to perfume her gloves and her bath.

THE INSPIRATION

“For this creation, I tried to intensify all the emblematic facets that make neroli so exceptional. That’s why I combined orange blossom absolute with a trio of citrus fruits – Italian lemon, mandarin and bergamot."
Quentin Bisch, Perfumer.
