          Mandarin has a lovely sweet fruity citrus aroma that is sweeter than sweet! Mandarin has relatively low limonene compared to Orange or Tangerine for a more powerful aromatic scent and perhaps one of the most relaxing.
          Mandarin was original cultivated from Tangerine but over time and careful cultivation has developed into its own sub species.
