Puss, don't run away, after all, the smell is expensive!
Hey, guys, how you doing? I'm writing another fragrance report for you today and I decided to use my samples to create a fresh scent, now that it's still warm and such scents are easier to describe in summer than in winter. But in the end this is probably just an excuse for me to keep on talking and writing here :)

Anyway, today it's about Bergamot of Roja. The fragrance was then called Bergamot Extrait, but today it is available as a new edition under the Heritage Collection. And yes, I know that many people might be a bit sceptical about fragrances called Bergamot, if they appear as a luxury fragrance, because such fragrances are known to be quite weak on the chest and not very durable, but as a perfume of a luxury brand they still cost hundreds of Euros. But more about that later.

Bergamot or citric fragrances are one of my favourite scents, and I don't say that because I'm Turkish and we only use every reason to pour litres of cologne over our guests and to be covered up ourselves, so that we couldn't live without it anymore :D
And yes, that's a joke, we ourselves currently only have pandemic colognes at home, and we only bought them in the spring when there was no more disinfectant available. Otherwise, we traditionally do not have colognes at home, but I can tell you one thing: Next time I'm in Turkey, I'll bring a whole collection He he he :D
And I will probably be buried there again, like every time I visit somewhere there...

But back to the scent, let's see how this scent smells here and especially if it is worth the money. Anyway, the cat doesn't like it, because he doesn't like citrus scents as usual, no matter how expensive the scents are. And I think the more authentic a citrus scent is, the further away he runs that philistine... :D

The smell:
The fragrance starts with a nice mix of citric bergamot and tangy-scented lavender, which makes the scent look quite classic and reminds one of many such fragrances like 4711 Colognes or other barbarshop-like scents. Something weakly sweet could come from jasmine, and you can also smell a little oakmoss, which is almost to be expected with this kind of fragrance.
A little later it still smells of bergamot, lavender (now increasingly strong) and oakmoss. The sweetish one from jasmine remains weak, but mixes a bit with musk and other sweet flowers, which I can't identify further. I even got a hint of mastic resin, but that could only have happened to me. In the next moment this impression finally disappeared again.
In the base, the fragrance hardly changes any more and actually continues to smell as it started, only with the difference that all fragrances now radiate much weaker.
A nice, but also rather inconspicuous scent, which also seems all too familiar.

The Sillage and the durability:
As expected, this fragrance is also not very strong in its aura, but it is not soo weak at the beginning either, as lavender and oakmoss clearly enhance the scent. These scents are also responsible for the longer shelf life, otherwise the fragrance would probably have fizzled out after only two hours. But this way the fragrance lasts for six to eight hours, but in at least half of this time the scent is quite weak.

The bottle! The bottle is solid and of the same high quality as always. According to the descriptions, the gold-plated metal elements contain real gold particles to make everything more precious and luxurious. The cap also contains fourteen Swarowski crystals, all of which are white or transparent in this fragrance. A beautiful flacon.

Conclusion:
Soo, that was Bergamot of Roja. The smell isn't bad. Yes, it smells good, although slightly old-fashioned for my taste, just like a classic chypre scent. But the thing is: Most of these scents smell almost the same! Well, the one from Roja here may have a slightly more authentic look in terms of scents, but unless you compare the Roja scent arm-in-arm with other chypre scents with a similar scent composition, I don't think you'll notice it (not to mention that even among the cheaper scents there are authentic scents). Therefore, most other good made scents have the advantage that they cost only a fraction of the Rojas.

I mean, of course Roja is a pure luxury brand, and some of its fragrances are pretty good, too, but just under 425 euros for 50 mL is a lot of money for a fragrance like that, I think. But to each his own :)

For me, this scent might be worth a test, but it's not a must-have. Otherwise, as described, it can be worn well in summer, as it leaves a fresh and clean impression despite the tart notes. It can be used as a day scent, for work and so on. But for going out it is much too unspectacular and boring, even if it should smell quite nice because of the sweetish scents.

And well, that's that. I wish you all a nice evening, ... and I'm going to bring the cat back in :D
See you :)

Roja Dove Bergamot does a good job for an essence which is commonly used without being a common fragrance. It smells rich, the citrus part last a good 1-2 hours. It starts with a floral touch that becomes more intense as the time goes by. The opening is more bitter, fizzy, with a lemon aura, and then the refreshing and more sweet side of citrus accord gets in evidence. Later, the scent shows its chypre side, but more in a modern way, very intense in the jasmine and with a musky and patchouli edge. It's unissex, but maybe more in the feminine side than masculine one. If you want a rich and expensive citrus chypre fragrance, this one is a great option.

Kinda opens like Oceania and Harrods PPH but drys down to a candy like citrus.

Very loud projection. For myself personally - any more than 2 sprays is suffocating.

As is the case with some other (especially earlier) Roja creations, this fragrance has some radiant crystal clear quality.
