New. Favorite. Candle.

This is my new favorite candle from (Malin+Goetz). Neroli is the scent. 

Neroli oil is a plant oil produced from the flower of the bitter orange tree or citrus aurantium or Bigardia.  Its scent is sweet, honeyed and somewhat metallic, in the best way. 

By the end of the 17th century, Anne Marie Orsini, duchess of Bracciano and princess of Nerola, Italy, introduced the essence of the bitter orange tree as a fashionable fragrance by using it to perfume her gloves and her bath. Since then, the term "neroli" has been used to describe this essence. Neroli has a refreshing and distinctive, spicy aroma with sweet and flowery notes.
