Acqua di Parma Bergamatto di Calabria

It's quite hard to go wrong with Bergmot in fragrance, unless of course you are one who dislikes Bergamot. Me, I love it. I even used to grow it on the patio.

Acqua di Parma's newest fragrance , Bergamotto di Calabria, harnesses that bergamot, an Italian staple , using bergamot D.O.P which is certified by the Consortium of Reggio Calabria. What this means is- it's the top purity.

The company's Blu Mediterraneo line is a series of fragances designed to bring the Mediterranean to you ( not a bad thing at all) and most are citrus based in some way, light , sparkly and sunny. Needless to say I love them. I already own Arancia Di Capri, a burst of fresh squeezed lemon and orange, and Mirto di Panarea with Myrtle.

Bergamotto di Calabria is obviously very bergamot. It is also though, very vetiver. In fact to my nose it is a bergamot/vetiver blend. Not as many other notes stand out. This may be citrus but it is very dry due to the vetiver and even though unisex, leans a bit more to the masculine side. It's not overly unique but it is quite nice. If like me, you are all about the citrus, then you should like it. It is typically very sunny and uplifting.

Other notes include: cedar wood, ginger, benzoin and musk.

Acqua Di Parma Bergamotto Di Calabria is available now at Neiman Marcus only and will launch at Saks and online at in March.
