About Bergamotto di Positano / Bergamotto Positano

The company say:

A unisex fragrance with a heart of a warm Mediterranean sea breeze, sunshine and shimmering water. A true summer citrus marine Eau De Parfum with the dance of the wind as it passes through coastal lemon trees, picking up weight and confidence of the spices and amber of the umbrella trees, rooted into the cliff face. An entwine of fresh bergamot, mandarin and warm marine notes brings instant refreshment. The heart is a vivacious combination of orange blossom with a hint of vanilla that brings a smooth character and creamy note to complement the initial sparkle. Base notes of wood, amber, ambrette and ginger give the fragrance a mellow warmth reminiscent of a Mediterranean evening.

Reviews of Bergamotto di Positano / Bergamotto Positano

Bitter tang of citrus and bergamot heavy in the opening. I had to work hard to smell the marine notes, even a second application didn't bring them much to the forefront. Settles into an odd green tea and vanilla mode for a long while. I agree that this is more of a light green tea and lightly spiced cookies scent than anything. It's not bad, but the name is so misleading (granted I've never been to the Mediterranean Sea, just the Bosphorus....but still).

I do like this one, very light and gingery after some time, more like an airy ambiance that I can fit into the 'tea' or 'tisane' category.

First, just a note to say that all the other sources available include the "di" (of). As mentioned in the previous review, this is an ill-named fragrance and those after a refreshing, summer scent with a Meditteranean tinge are liable to be very disappointed. Rather, this is a melange of more substantial notes that might forgivably be categorised as a gourmand. Ginger, vanilla, and some florals / blossoms predominate. Not altogether a failure, but a) not for me, and b) not what it says on the tin. Surely you have to make the name not completely misleading if want to maximise the success of your product?

I will only give this a neutral rating. Even though it is not my style, I could have given a slight thumbs up. But the scent style is so different from what is promised that I have to take that into account. This is not a warm breeze off the ocean. It is a cozy tea-and-cookies scent.
Starts with a green-tinged citrus note. Tea notes alternate with a marine (slightly rubbery, but pleasant) note. Then spices and a warm buttery/vanilla chord emerge and carry the scent for a while. This is foody. I don't like that style but this is OK. The vanilla is not obvious, and the scent smells like a very tasty, freshly-baked cookie. Surprisingly, some hints of the tea note and even the marine note persist. Suddenly, there is a flourish of the awaited orange blossom -- surprisingly late in the game but welcome.
Overall, a little too sweet for me. Gourmand-ish. Pleasant. The elements are good, nothing offensive here. Just not my style.
