Alas, that modern knowledge should have destroyed all faith in old legend! The fabled fruits of the Hesperides turn to oranges in the hands of our wise men, the death-dealing dragon becomes Wad Lekkus itself, so ready even to-day to snarl and roar at the bidding of the wind that comes up out of the south-west, and the dusky maidens of surpassing loveliness are no more than simple Berber girls, who, whilst doubtless dusky, and possibly maidenly as ever, have not inherited much of the storied beauty of their forbears. In spite of this modern perversion of the old tale I find that the oranges of the dining-table have a quite rare charm for me to-night,—such an attraction as they have had hitherto only when I have picked them in the gardens of Andalusia, or in the groves that perfume the ancient town of Jaffa at the far eastern end of the Mediterranean. Now I have one more impression to cherish, and the scent of a blossoming orange tree will recall for me El Araish as I saw it at the moment when the shroud of evening made the mosques and the kasbah of Mulai al Yazeed melt, with the great white spaces between them, into a blurred pearly mass without salient feature.
Morocco, by S.L. Bensusan

The wild harvested Sweet Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis) from the West Indies(cold pressed) is the most unique in aroma amongst the sweet oranges that I have had encountered.

It is an orange liquid with a distinctive  fresh, sweet/punguent fruity-citrus bouquet. Its overall bouquet is more intense in the above described notes than any other sweet orange I have smelled.

In natural perfumery can be effectively used in culinary perfumes, top note in floral compositions, colognes, fougeres and chypres, fruit accords.
