Named after the Italian city of Bergamo, the Bergamot orange is a small citrus fruit. Its delicious oil is used to flavour foods and beverages such as candy and tea.
Bergamot essential oil is also used in aromatherapy to help treat depression and as a digestive aid. The sweetness and mild spice of the Bergamot peel makes it a perfect note to energize water, mossy woods, chypres and leather fragrances. Its fruity zing is charming when paired with crisp green notes. Approximately one third of all men’s and half of all ladies fragrances contain a splash Bergamot.
Sarah Jessica Parker released NYC Pure Crush in 2011. It is an exotic blend of fruity citrus notes, most predominantly, Bergamot, and a coconut twist that will transport you to tropical islands and sandy beaches. The sparkling Bergamot breathes life into this fragrance, making it a refreshing and invigorating blend.
Hugo Boss employs the vivacious nature of Bergamot in their fragrance, Boss Orange for Men. This woody oriental fragrance is a celebration of happiness and the top note of Bergamot reflects the joy of spontaneity. A base of vanilla and woods perfectly rounds balances this fragrance.
