    Default Bergamot

    I have really been enjoying fragrances containing bergamot this spring (L'humaniste, Dior Homme Cologne, EZ Italian Bergamot). What are your favorite fragrances that contain this note?

    Yes, my apologies for not stating that. I forgot to mention Nio, I love that stuff! I have been testing Bergamot 22 and loving it. I have yet to try the Roja Dove and Dior. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Carthusia Via Camerelle, Bergamot, Lemon, Seamoss and Cedar. An exceptional accord IMHO. I've never smelled anything quite like it. Not at all feminine BTW, one of the guys has it as his SOTD the other day. Go for the EDP if you want it to last though. The EDT is very fleeting.

    I really enjoyed RD Vetiver. I had a 10ml decant of it and I hate myself everyday for swapping it away!

    You're quite welcome! As has already been noted, Roja Dove's Vetiver Extrait is brilliant. Certainly a masterpiece, but probably not bergamot dominant.

    As I have mentioned before, It seems that we have similar taste doug, so I will definitely seek out your recommendations. I absolutely love Zegna Italian Bergamot but the longevity is absolutely horrible on me. How does it perform on you?

    Yeah, I think generally we do seem to like many of the same things.

    As far as Italian Bergamot, it's not the longest lasting scent for sure, but I do get a good 6 hours from it. However I usually spray under my shirt and a spray onto my shirt also, so that may help.

    Bergamote 22 by Le Labo - fresh light and lively
    Italian Bergamot by Zegna Essenze - almost as good as the Le Labo
    Florentine Iris by Zegna Essenze - the iris with bergamot opening extends it into a sublime combination - mystical - buzz.

    I sampled EZ Italian Bergamot and too find it to be nice. Though the Bergamot is not as forward as some of the others, I really like Kilian Prelude to Love.

    I looked at Via Camerelle today out of curiosity and the "seamoss" looks like it is actually Oakmoss which is listed on the ingredients label .
