Bergamot is een citrus fruit whose size is somewhere between a lemon and a lime. The essential oil from its peel is often used in aromas (Earl Grey tea) and of course for perfumes. Bergamot is frequently present in eau-de-colognes, citrus, fougère and chypre fragrances. It is the favorite ingredient for many perfumers to add freshness to their creations. It smells sparkling and cheerful, less sour than a lemon. Energetic and aromatic, with a slight peppery accent.
