Bergamotto de Calabria


Pin It Fancy
Our return journey to our homeland - the sunlit Italy of the Phoenicians, Greeks, Arabs and Normans - begins with Bergamotto di Calabria: a cross between a lemon and a bitter orange, this citrus fruit is the prince of perfumery, found in almost all the most popular formulas today.

But because of its volatility, this particular prince has never received the honour it deserves. So we went right back to extraction, following its ancient traditions. A curved knife is used to remove the pulp and leave the peel behind, also known as “Bergamot sponge”. It is then passed over a natural sponge to collect the essence. The fruity base and delicate floral notes of Jasmine in our Bergamotto di Calabria draw inspiration from our return to the past.

Its decidedly modern, invigorating freshness comes from additional exotic touches and our lengthy experiments with Bergamot to make it persistent and zingy.

Notes: Top notes are Bergamot, Petitgrain Paraguay, Pink Pepper and Pepper; middle notes are Orange Blossom, Neroli and Jasmine; base notes are Haitian Vetiver, Sandalwood, Iris and Musk.
