Rather like grapefruit, its near-relation, pomelo is a brilliant, vibrant top note or heart note which adds citrussy sparkle to many perfumes, especially Colognes.  Mostly, pomelos are grown in South and South-east Asia:  pale green to yellow when ripe and juicy, with flesh that doesn’t have grapefruit’s bitter edge.  In aromatherapy, pomelo’s used for energizing – which is exactly what it delivers in a perfume. (We think of it as cheerfulness, bottled.)
