BERGAMOT has a very old history in the world of perfumery. It is the part of the olfactory pyramid of 90% of perfumes. But without being the protagonist due to its volatility.

BERGAMOT is native to South Asia, but the most important production area is the South-West of Italy, in Calabria, along 140 km of the Ionian Coast. BERGAMOT is a hybrid between a bitter orange and a lemon. To obtain 1 kg of essence, 1,500 fruits are necessary. The best quality is offered by those recently matured. Its aromatic notes, like those of mandarin, lemon, orange and lime, are known as hesperidiades. It is obtained by squeezing the fresh peel of the fruit.

There are 3 varieties of BERGAMOT: Femminiello, Castagnaro and Fantástico.

The BERGAMOTTO DI CALABRIA contains the precious raw material between "sponge bergamot", whose extraction is still carried out through a manual process, cutting the fruits in half and removing the pulp with a special curved cutter. Next, the skin of the fruit is compressed in a natural sponge, through a rotary movement the essence is collected.

The essence that is obtained is the best part, more delicate and more complex compared to the one that is extracted with the peeler and has characteristics of fruity and floral notes of jasmine. Going back to the origins and traditional extraction techniques, has allowed us to obtain the best of the raw materials to achieve a bouquet that encloses the freshness of the BERGAMOT, leaving a persistent and energetic fragrance after a long work.
