Mandarin essential oil - Citrus reticulata Blanco - Italian Type
In contrast with tangerine, mandarin oil has an amine-type topnote. Although sweet, its odour is not as fresh or refreshing as other citrus oils. Its application in flavourings is mainly as a modifier for citrus beverage compositions, such as orange and bitter orange.
