Commercially produced Red and Yellow Mandarin essential oils often contain a slight “fishy” note in the top note aroma, due to a natural constituent that is formed at high temperatures. Our artisan produced Red Mandarin essential oil is entirely free of that “fishy” topnote, and has a beautiful, very light floral quality to the aroma.
