The scent of Bitter Orange is cross between the sweetness of Sweet Orange and the bitterness of Grapefruit. The resultant scent is fresh and uplifting and much much fruitier than standard Sweet Orange. Bitter Orange is derived from the same tree as Neroli and Petitgrain and therefore shares many of Neroli's therapeutic properties.
