Italian Bergamot fragrance notes

Reviews of Italian Bergamot

A mild thumbs-up here. Nothing earth-shaking or mind-boggling, but a solid scent with good ingredients, well executed.
Opening is citrusy and green (of herbs). The scent is genteel and reminds me of the Aqua di Parma line, a version of that classic EdP scent which properly never goes out of style. The scent stays at that stage for a while, no new developments. The dry-down is a bit grassy and adds new green notes, courtesy of the vetiver.

WOW! The more time I spend with Italian Bergamot, the more I grew to love it. Nowhere is the line's signature note more perfectly showcased than it is here, all balmy and breezy, with herbal nuances giving it a quintessentially Mediterranean character. While the central citrus accord is not quite as zesty as the one in Sicilian Mandarin, the overall scent more than holds its own, coming across confident and suave, like a classic Italian gentlemen's cologne, particularly as it coasts towards the dry down.

To the legions of Armani Eau Pour Homme fans, I'm issuing a mandatory sniff recommendation on this fragrance. Get ready to splash the cash.

Gorgeous translucent exotic minimalistic combination of bergamot, probably ginger, neroli and vetiver plus aromatic patterns (mint, basil??) and woods. Bergamot and quality vetiver are in Italian Bergamot combined in to a vaguely salty breezy and "windy" combination in the "The Different Company"'s style with a more than vague "recall" about an ideal blend of Divine Bergamote and Sel de Vetiver. All the elements are extremely balanced, bright, airy, freshly citrusy, slightly rosey, elegantly combined in to a classy mediterranean sparkling balance. Utterly recommended.

A gorgeous and beautiful Italian style citrus fragrance.

I had initially written this off as the least interesting of Zegna's Essenze collection and therefore I didn't think it was full bottle worthy. Well after much testing and sitting on the fence, I went ahead and purchased a full bottle of this (and Sicilian Mandarin).

This really is gorgeous and I can detect each and every note listed in the publicity. It comes across as being in the style of a classic Italian cologne, like ADP Colonia, but it definitely has its own character. I also get a sense of a fresh non-sweet eucalyptus type of note, like freshly scrunched eucalyptus leaves, but it remains firmly in the background. This is not a very complex fragrance, but I get the feeling that it isn't meant to be.

For a citrus based fragrance the longevity and sillage are pretty good, although not near Zegna's Indonesian Oud. It's a little expensive, but if you are looking for a beautiful citrus that not everyone is wearing, you could do worse than this. As with all the Essenze collection, the presentation and bottle are stunning.

Pros: Exclusive, fresh, classic, and reasonably long lasting.
Cons: Not very complex (but I don't personally find that to be a con)."
