What does Bergamot smell like?

As you indulge in the scents of Aroma Island’s 'Private Island' Candle, you're transported to a seaside location of your dreams. One note that stands out in this luxurious, island-inspired fragrance is the invigorating scent of Bergamot. But what exactly does Bergamot smell like? Let's delve into the sensory world of this fascinating fruit.

Bergamot is a citrus fruit, much smaller than an orange but slightly larger than a lime. It is most famously known as the unique flavoring in Earl Grey tea. The smell of Bergamot is complex; it's citrusy and fruity, sweet yet subtly spicy, and elegantly floral.

When you first smell Bergamot, the top note is often a bright, fresh citrus scent, similar to a sweet lime or a less sour grapefruit. This note is immediately invigorating and uplifting, capturing the essence of a warm, sunny day in the Mediterranean, where the fruit originates.

As the scent deepens, you begin to detect a subtle sweetness with hints of spiciness, adding a layer of complexity to the fragrance. This sweet-spicy duo is what makes Bergamot a unique scent among the citrus family.

Lastly, Bergamot has a distinctive floral quality that sets it apart from other citrus fruits. It's this floral note that adds an element of sophistication to the scent, making it a popular choice in luxury fragrances.

In our Private Island Candle or Reed Diffuser, Bergamot is masterfully blended with other notes like grapefruit, melon, rose, amber, and cedarwood. This creates a rich, exotic fragrance that transforms your home into a private island oasis.
