Bergamot Blossom comes across as a bold spicy fresh scent, to my nose more sustainable on a man than a woman (in general, I do not share my gender observations but given the name of the fragrance might be somewhat off putting to a man, I am here to say "give it a try boys!"). Very hard for me to tease out a solitary bergamot note in this concoction, but what I do get is an overall sense of high quality ingredients and high concentration absolute of labdanum & bergamot which give an almost 'oily' and slightly boozy impression. I see this as not particularly mind blowing stuff, but eminently wearable and well constructed. The sillage is about 8-12 inches (20 cm+) off my skin for well over 4 hours. So if you're balking at the aristocratic price tag, consider that this is good strong long lasting - like Grapa versus Pinot Grigio, for example. This has the potential to be a day into evening transition scent, as it opens up further after the first hours into a bit more resinous and sultry spiciness. Bergamot blossom could easily be somebody's effortlessly stylish year round signature because I definitely would wear this more in the Fall and Winter versus Spring and Summer and many others have rated this as more of a Spring and Summer scent- so year round, for sure. Bergamot Blossom's fresh spicy top reminds me a little bit of D&G Anthology "Le Fou" with out the violet, juniper and minus the woody base notes. It seems to be a modern streamlined eclectic take on the traditionally complex bergamot compositions...not bad at all.
