    Default Bergamot based Fragrance

    I was about to pull the trigger on Le Labo bergamot 22 but Gallaguer's Bergamust caught my attention also. Any comments will be appreciated

    Bergamote soleil is nice and pretty affordable. I also like aqua universalis

    I love Bergamot

    Bergamot 22 is a beautiful, fresh, energizing scent tha I won’t be without.

    That being said, before you pull the trigger check out :
    Nio
    Dior Homme Cologne
    1872
    Radiant Bergamot

    You don’t have to break the bank to get a great bergamot. DHC and Radiant Bergamot really stack up in my opinion.
    To a lesser degree try Ice Man by Jimmy Choo

    Bergamot 22 is lovely, but it's not really a bergamot scent imo.

    The Different Company's Bergamote is the closest solo-bergamot I can think of. For the best of the best though - older Guerlains like Mitsouko or Shalimar (or even Habit Rouge) are the way to go. Keeping in mind that the topnote only lasts so long.

    Bergamote by The Different Company is also nice.

    Go with the Le Labo. It's a great fragrance and it really has the staying power some other fragrances in this genre don't have.

    I also enjoy TF's Venetian Bergamot, but out of all those choices, Le Labo would be my choice.

    Guerlain Bergamote Calabria, Oud & Bergamot and Orto Parisi Bergamask. Bergamotto Calabria by Acqua di Parma is pretty nice either.

    Venetian bergamot is indeed great, I already own Rive D' Ambre that is very similar so this is not a consideration, thanks

    Among those already mentioned, Bergamatto Marino by Gianfranco Ferre is very nice, for a less expensive option to 22, 1872, and Nio. Not saying it's as good, but good and less expensive

    Bergamote Soleil by Atelier Cologne. You can find it at Sephora, but Atelier Cologne sells samples on their website too. I absolutely love the way they constructed the bergamot note. It's surprisingly deep and rich.

    This. Don't waste your money on anything Le Labo. The Zegna is somewhat of a hidden gem.

    Another shout towards Atelier Bergamote Soleil.

    I've only heard good things about the Zegna as well.

    Bergamote 22 is the best one by some margin, in my experience

    there's a Zara bergamot frag which is pretty good & cheap which stacks up against some of the lower priced options mentioned (perfumer is Alberto Morillas) https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/...ota-42693.html

    i've tried most of the frags mentioned, couple of examples the different company one i felt came off way too feminine and candy like. the Atelier is a soap overload, great opening but goes mega soapy (in a bad way) on the drydown.

    Nio is amazing but it's far moree green than fruity.

    Another vote for the TDC Bergamote.

    Might be worth trying Chanel Rue Cambon. It's basically a chypre with no oakmoss base but it features bergamot really well in a classic chyprish style.

    The le Labo Bergamote shower gel, shampoo etc. are quite nice (I regularly deplete stores from a couple of hotels I stay at) but I bought a mini of the juice to try and don't see a need to replace it - it's 'okay' IMO.
