    Default best bergamot scent

    looking for a bergamot dominant fragrance , something that matches le labo's bergamote 22 and xerjoff's nio's quality but more budget friendly and with decent performance.

    l own dua's clowns for those two and they are pretty good , also own bergamote soleil by atelier and love it.
    what is the ultimate bergamot?

    One I enjoy is Bergamote by The Different Company

    Jo Malone Oud & Bergamot is nice and cheaper than those, but is a bit different than Nio or Bergamote 22 because of the oud. it is quite nice though.

    I mean... Sauvage? right?
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Acqua di Parma Bergamotto is amazing but lasts all of about an hour.

    The Zegna Italian Bergamot is a very good one.

    Wow really? I am one who normally gets bad performance on my skin and i feel like it lasts longer than that for me. Definitely not a big time performer though, compared to other options.

    I dont know if Dior Homme Cologne fits the smell you are looking for, but it last a surprisingly long time for a super duper freshie of the citrus kind. If I spray it four times under my shirt it performs subtly for 8 hours plus and holds on to top notes for most of that time, and on open skin it can go 5 or 6 hours sometimes 7, it just hits the deep dry down faster.

    TDC Bergamote is good, also Eau de Guerlain BUT bergamote is a 'top note' so neither lasts long. Atelier do citrus styled stuff with a bit more heft - worth checking out their line.

    the guys on fragrantica say it has poor performance , and it has been compared to the smell of lemonade by some youtubers , I'm looking for something like bergamot 22 which is bergamot centric smells natural has good performance and affordable

    Sorry I misread. But a decent cheapie by Pierre Bourdon is Ferre's Bergamotto Marino. A favorite of mine for years. I need to rediscover it again.

    To be clear, the Zegna Italian Bergamot I referred to was launched in 2012 and is an EDP concentration. It is not to be confused with the Acqua di Bergamotto. I get impressive performance from it relative to many of the other bergamots I have tried.

    Sad if it is. A very good scent if it is still circulating on e-bay.

    I know they are not the same, I guess I got the wrong information regarding the concentration though...

    Acqua di Bergamotto by Zegna is a good lower priced bergamot that I think performs really well and is less than half the cost of Zegna Italian Bergamot - as good as.
    Probably the best bergamot cologne ever made was by Edmond Roudnitska created in 1966 for Dior Eau Sauvage is a great lemony scent of bergamot and todays version is still very similar to the original - reasonable price.
