Botanical Name : Citrus Bergamia

Country of Origin : Italy

Olfactive Family : Hesperide

Harvester : Capua 1880

Harvested part : Zest

Main application : Diffusion

Essential oil of Bergamot is obtained through an ancient extraction process. It consists of splitting the fruit and then pressing the zest onto a sponge stored on top of a jar. A magnificent know-how whose result promises a sparkling essential oil ; delicately lemony and resolutely tangy.

Of ancient origin, Bergamot is a citrus fruit that comes mainly from the province of Reggio Calabria in Italy, more precisely along the Ionian coast. A kind of large lemon with a much more penetrating aroma, it is the basis of many perfumes and cosmetics. In the food industry, it is used in particular to flavor Earl Grey tea. It’s also the only citrus fruit that is not consumed directly.

Bergamot essential oil is an excellent fixative in perfumery. It is used in particular during the constitution of bouquets to bind together the fragrances of the various flowers. Bergamot is finally at the origin of the creation of “aqua admirabilis” recognized as the first cologne.

Perfumery

OLFACTORY DESCRIPTION

A great classic of perfumery, Bergamot essential oil transcends the citrus note as we know it. It settles on addictive herbaceous, zesty and marine notes. We note that the extraction process, expression of zest, ensures a much greater richness in the head space : the aromatic depth is undeniable, evoking the small green and peppery grain, but also lavender and other fresh flowers such as lily of the valley. The fragrance gains in roundness on a more gourmand note, we think we can distinguish a bit of candied ginger, and gradually the whole fades with elegance.
