Reviews of Bergamote / Divine Bergamote by The Different Company

There are 26 reviews of Bergamote / Divine Bergamote by The Different Company.

Hmmmm... Yes, there's bergamot, and somehow it combines with the ginger to simulate candied lime. It's also kind of sour, hinting at a chypre smell as well, and there's something else in there (verbena? green tea?) that gives a hint of tea smell.

As stated in other reviews, it behaves like an old fashioned citrus cologne and just sort of fades away quickly. In all, this feels passable, but not special or anything I'd pick, given the many citrus cologne options. Meh.

Many have given
Youth serum to bergamot
But Jean-Claude's stuff worked.

Well its bergamot alright, the question is whether it's a nicer smell than good quality bergamot oil itself. I'm not presently convinced of that but I'm reserving judgement.

As with all citrus eau de colognes, the purpose is fleeting and so by volatile composition is the juice.

This is a perfectly decent eau with fizzy top notes of lime, lemon and bergamot - Tania Sanchez correctly recalls Lubin's 1955 delight, Gin Fizz - morphing into orange blossom and finally a rosy rhubarb and musk dry down.

Completely inoffensive, delightfully refreshing, and constantly uplifting as any eau should be. Its cost is not justified, however, as there are dozens of similar eaus out there at half or a quarter the cost.

For those seeking the citrus/rose blend, I recommend Agraria's Lemon Verbena, at much lower cost.

Smelled it today and it is just a citrus lollypop what you are smelling and this is a expensive niche fragrance,i am shocked,just move on people....

Divine Bergamote

Two things

Firstly, I'm glad this isn't typically citrus-woody. Its citrus-green.

Secondly, spraying it is like misting yourself with sparkling water at the beach.

What makes it unique is that, I feel, it's (bergamot) a step up from lemons.

Don't get me wrong I love lemons. I love a good squeeze of lemon on biryani, Lemon and mint juice, lemon tart and lemon sorbet. But it's a bit less dimensional than bergamot.

Bergamot feels a bit more complex in nature. Not on the level of geranium or jasmine complexity but more complex than other items in the citrus basket (lemons and lime for example). I get this aromatic vibe from it that makes me feel like I'm smelling an aromatic herb but instead of it being herbaceous , it's citric.

I went back and forth between Divine Bergamote and Bergamote 22 Le Labo but finally settled on Divine Bergamote. The green facet really appealed to more than b22's woody-citric approach.

The epitome of refreshment.
