Odor Description:Fresh, fruity-bergamot, sweet, herbaceous, clary sage
Arctander describes it like this: “Mentha citrata oil is a pale yellow or pale olive colored to almost water-white liquid of a sweet-herbaceous, somewhat fruity-fresh odor type; it resembles bergamot, but is distinctly more harsh in its terpenic topnotes, less rich in body, and without the oily-sweet, candy-like undertone of good bergamot oils. On the other hand, mentha citrata, oil presents a certain bergamot note without the citrus notes. This makes the oil more interesting in the lavender-fougere field. Its dryout has some resemblance to sage clary, but lacks the richness of that oil.”

Odor: characteristic
Use: Adam Michael has this to say “Bergamot mint has a somewhat confusing taxonomy and morphology resulting in varying opinion regarding the botanical name. Personally I refer to this material by botanical name as Mentha citrata Ehrh. However as this material is a cultivar of M.aquatica some are of the opinion the correct botanical name is Mentha aquatic L. var. citrata (Ehrh).

Notes:
Like most other mints, the Bergamot Mint, the plant Mentha Citrata, originated in central and southern Europe. However, the only present day cultivation of the plant and distillation of oil of commercial importance is carried out in the far western United States, particularly in the states of Oregon and Washington. tsca definition 2008: extractives and their physically modified derivatives. mentha citrata, labiatae.
