Citral can be colorless or a pale, yellow liquid.
It has a strong, fresh odor of lemon peel, and we use it as a fragrance material.
It is widely found in essential oils we use, such as bergamot, cardamom, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, lime, neroli, and sweet orange.
Used as an ingredient, it gives a fresh lemon odor to perfumes. In soap perfumery, it helps to develop rose notes. We use it in our Karma and Bohemian soaps.
