Citrus aurantium var. amara, known as the bitter orange tree or the Seville orange tree, is native to Asia Minor. It was introduced in Europe, specifically Spain, by Arab merchants in the 9th and 10th centuries. In the 19th century and start of the 20th century, the bitter orange tree brought great renown to the southern French towns of Vallauris and Golfe-Juan.
The bitter orange blossom takes its name Neroli from a 17th-century duchess named Anne-Marie de la Trémoille, also known as Princess of Nerola. She was particularly fond of this flower and used it to scent her gloves and bath water.

Orange blossoms need the winter cold to bloom in the spring, but the trees cannot tolerate frost. Come springtime, the blooms are hand-picked, one by one, and swiftly processed. The flowers are processed into essential oil on site. The trees begin producing five years after being planted in the ground, but do not become fully productive until they are a decade old, after which they can produce for more than 40 years.
