Neroli is an instrumental album by British musician Brian Eno, released in 1993.

Conceived as a single piece, Eno describes it in the liner notes as "to reward attention, but not (be) so strict as to demand it". Single notes resonate throughout the piece in a seemingly random but harmonic pattern that shifts quietly for close to an hour. Thanks to the calming nature of the piece, Neroli has been implemented in some maternity wards, both to instill a sense of calm as well as enhance the organic nature of childbirth. According to the notes accompanying the CD, Eno intended to release a longer version for just that purpose.
