The master's handwriting..

... it is simple, unfussy and somewhat distant. I have a few fragrances by Jean-Claude Ellena in my collection - it may be a coincidence, but they all have one thing in common. They strike me as a highly stylized take on an idea from nature. I think of ikebana, the elaborate Japanese flower arrangements with their precise minimalism, subject to strict rules. A voluntary self-restriction to the essential, which I like very much.

Bergamote by The Different Company is no exception for me. At the center, artfully placed in the light, is the eponymous bergamot. Now you could remark somewhat sarcastically, that's actually it, but that would do this ethereal fragrance structure then but injustice. The bergamot was placed by the master of understatement some delicate pastel helpers to the side, a brush stroke of ginger spiciness, a dab of green, a touch of flower, a touch of acidity.
This added acidity is what I like least about the scent. At the beginning it seems almost vinegary-sour, the pyramid identifies it as rhubarb, funnily enough it reminds me more of the smell of vegetable aspic as it progresses. After some time, this for me undesirable component moves into the background and a translucent, restrained fragrance remains.
Sensation is unlikely to attract with him, the sillage I estimate as practically non-existent. On days when I'm a little fragrance tired or after a restless night through he is but a perfectly balanced and thus soothing companion.

This fragrance opens with notes of ginger, rhubarb and various citruses. The resulting accord is perfect for hot summer days; rhubarb and ginger emphasise the tartness of lemon and downplay the sweetness of orange blossom, creating a very refreshing experience. The scent calms down considerably in its mid-development as green and woodsy notes emerge. A faint trace of bergamot is present throughout the whole progression until the dry down. Unfortunately the fragrance does not last very long on me, after only two hours it is gone.

Ginger Citrus Cologne
When I saw that this sample cube read BERGAMOTE, I had pretty low expectations for a fragrance bearing the name of a note found in 33% of all perfumes and usually not playing a starring role--perhaps for a reason?

Those expectations were met and exceeded. There's certainly more than bergamot in this refreshing citrus cologne. The ginger blends in to produce a tonic which reminds me for obvious reasons of Bond no 9 NEW YORK FLING, also a citrus-ginger composition.

In a side-by-side comparison, I find NEW YORK FLING certainly more declarative but also more interesting than BERGAMOTE, probably because of the touch of florality and basil mingling with the wood. I also think that as a straight-up citrus, BERGAMOTE does not really stand out from the crowd and has poor longevity even in this category notorious for evanescence.
