Agraria Bitter Orange

The scent of clove, zest of bitter orange and a touch of cypress warms any room that it is lit in. From its earliest days in San Francisco at the shop where it originated, to Henri Bendel’s in New York, where the scent floated out onto the sidewalk–Agraria bitter orange has always signified a level of good taste. The New York Times calling the unique, spicy fragrance, “uplifting, mysterious and androgynous in its appeal.”
