Found and grown exclusively Calabria, the bergamot is a hybrid between a bitter orange and a lemon. Bergamotto Di Calabria contains an extremely rare material called the ‘Bergamot sponge’. Even today, the extraction is still done manually. First, the fruit is sliced in half and the pulp is manually removed with a special incurved knife. Then the rind is gently pressed on a natural sponge in a circular motion to collect all of the precious oil. The essence accumulated is vastly different from your traditional bergamot essential oil. Bergamot sponge is the most delicate and complex of all and resembles a fruity and floral note of jasmine and is the flagship ingredient that makes Perris Monte Carlo’s Bergamotto di Calabria truly unique.
Head Notes: Bergamot Sponge, Petitgrain, Timur Pepper and Pink Pepper. Heart Notes: Orange Flower Water, Neroli, Orange Blossom and Jasmine. Base Notes: Iris, Sandalwood, Vetiver and Musk.
