Bergamot is one of our favourite fragrance ingredients here at A&B. This surprisingly versatile citrus note comes from the essential oil of the bergamot orange, an unusual green relative of the lemons, limes and oranges we’re more familiar with. While you won’t find bergamot in the fresh fruit aisle, you might recognise its flavour – it’s one of the ingredients which go into creating the classic English taste of Earl Grey tea. Aside from its tea-making uses, bergamot is also a highly prized scent in perfumery as it creates as a complex citrus note which pairs well with fresh, floral and aromatic elements for a unique and pleasing effect.
