    Darn

    It looks like the prices aren't as good as they used to be.

    I'm still intrigued though....

    I have it too. I got it cheap as can be. A refreshing salty citrus eau de cologne. Very uplifting, and great value too.

    A review that I read on-line (not on this site, though) said that it resembles Diesel Fuel for Life (Men's version).

    Anyone agrees?

    I don't know. I'll try the Diesel the next time I see it in a store.

    I'm thinking about buying BM blind from a fellow BN member. Does it indeed smell like Fuel for Life? I already have that and don't like it as much now as I did in the store. Anything else it can be compared to?

    Didn't smell like FFL to me, not as fruity and sweet, it's more of a lemony cologne. For me they did share the characteristic of being slightly annoying when worn though. Wasn't for me, this one.

    Does anyone know if this is also worth owning next to vintage Extra Vieille by Roger & Gallet?
    I own a 200ml spray of that one and find it excellent regarding smell and longevity (edc-wise) but was wondering if the smell of Bergamotto Marino differs enough to own both?! (thinking of blind buying BM)

    I stand corrected. I just found a single bottle available on Amazon..... for $126 !!!
    And there is not the slightest chance I will pay this much for a blind buy.

    I did a blind buy on this for $40 on Amazon for the 200ml. The presentation is gorgeous, heavy glass bottle, rubbery black cap, simple sticker. The opening floral blast is a bit much for my taste. I was hoping it would be more bergamotto marino out the gate. However, the floral blast does die off and the base is better/interesting. There is something familiar I haven't been able to put my finger on yet about the base. This is a classy/subtle unisex fragrance that is different from the standard designer aquatics. Smells better blended/more natural for sure. I'm not sure I love it, but I'm intrigued enough to keep it. It does not smell like Le Labo Bergamote 22. I actually don't like that one. It's overpriced and boring IMO. I think Ylang 49 is a better choice although a bit sweet/floral. Sorry if this isn't super helpful, but I would say if the $40 is no big deal to you give it a try. If you don't like florals in your fragrance at all I would say this is a deal breaker.

    By far the biggest thing for me is the presentation. What a beautiful box & bottle.. minimalist, tasteful and high quality.
    +1 - The floral note is a main player and I wish it was as the title suggests that the bergamot was the main player.
