It gives off a fresh, sweet slightly rose scent in the top, which transitions to a more citrusy scent in the heart, although the rosy aspect persists right down to the base. Citronella, like lemon, is often associated with cleaning agents, which is why it is rarely present in a perfume in large quantities. Citronella oil belongs to the cheapest group of essential oils, including orange oil.

Citronella fits well in a green or rosy citrus top note, for example in a green perfume. Mixed with cedar oil, it is a classic mosquito repellent. It can be used well in soap, where the pink of the scent is especially evident.

Nothing has been added to the oil, it is 100% pure essential oil.
