(MALIN+GOETZ) Bergamot description

(Malin + Goetz) Bergamot is an uplifting, brisk, spicy and approachable perfume. It has one of the most effervescently pleasing openings of anything we carry – a bright profusion of bergamot, lemon, mandarin, lime and grapefruit, spiked with a bracing green bell pepper note. And what’s even better is that these notes don’t quickly disappear at the start, but stick around for several minut

Pleasant but too citrusy
I wish the scent had other layers that blended well with the citrus, but the citrus ends up being much too strong for me.

Overpowering
I was excited to try this since bergamot is one of my favorite scents! However, the only thing I can smell in this is the green pepper. Even after wearing it for a while, the green pepper is all I can detect. Not something I really love to smell like.

I’m not big on strong or over powering scents and this one is perfect. It’s my go-to for everyday wear. I get compliments on it all the time.

Intense Scent
Starts out really spicy but settles into an intense citrusy smell with a hint of spice. Not a huge fan of the intensity.

Not Sugar but DEFINITELY spicy.
This fragrance reminds me of my grandmother's house every Sunday before we went to church. The fragrance's smell was in direct correlation to my grandmother's personality - temperamental, and strong! While it is a good memory to hold of my grandmother, I don't think I would use it as I am branding myself.

Iffy about this one
I am not particularly impressed with this one as much as the others. My partner and I tried the Cannabis cologne by Malin+Goetze and it was great, but this one I do not really enjoy the scent, as it is really light and not noticeable after a few hours.

Fresh scent perfect for warm weather
Bergamot has delightful, citrusy top notes that are perfect for spring and summer. Backing up the citrus is something a bit spicy, a bit mysterious. What I was pleasantly surprised at is the amazing staying power of this perfume. The first day I wore it, I applied it around 8 am on a day when I didn't get home till 8 pm. As I was standing in the kitchen, my husband came up to me and just started nibbling on my neck, exclaiming how nice I smelled. You can bet I'll be getting Bergamot again! ;)

not my cup of tea.
The top notes are overpowering. Too strong, too much citrus notes. It feels to me that this is just a super cheap soap that my grandfather used to like. The smell is just too dated. Absolutely for mature people. (over 60). Dry down is much better.

for the fella
I sampled this one with my husband in mind as I love bergamot fragrance in general. I am so glad I tried it, I am absolutely in love with it and so is my husband. What more could you ask, right?! It is bergamot strong, with the black pepper coming through, and just enough citrus to balance. Long wearing you ask? I kid you not, it was still going strong after he gave our dog a bath!!

Great smell, horrible performance
The smell of this cologne is amazing. It reminds me of a woody citrus clean smell. My only complaint about this cologne is the projection and longevity of the smell is horrible. I sprayed 4 sprays on my neck and I still could not smell the cologne when I left the room I sprayed the cologne on. Don't know for sure but I think it may be watered down or something. The only reason I am giving it two stars is for the projection and longevity. The smell is great, just wished it wasn't weak.

Doesn't last long
I really love the smell of this! Bell peppers, lime, and lemon. Very citrusy. It just doesn't last long enough for the full price. The sillage is good for about 3-4 feet for about an hour tops. The scent actually lasts about 2-3 hours. Which isn't long enough for me.

Strong initial scents include pepper, bitter citrus, lime. Not overly pleasant at first but it fades to a much more pleasing lime scent after a few hours.

Minimalist uncluttered TRUE bergamot
I have a great deal of fondness for Malin & Goetz, though I recognize that their scents can be polarizing...it seems they inspire a love - hate dichotomy rather than a more inclusive continuum from love , working down degrees at a time to hate. I had been incredibly eager to try cannabis, having already been familiar with many of the M&G products, and while I enjoyed it, ultimately I had been more enamored with the IDEA and the description than the actually scent. Ac- I suppose...undeterred and fueled in part by a very true, lifelong love of real bergamot essential oil, I tried their version- IT DOESNT disappoint. I found it to be straightforward and unpretentious. The bergamot scent doesn’t get obscured or overwhelmed by unnecessary or competing hues. Minimalist, natural, straightforward, and uncomplicated. Classic and clean and accessible. Furthest it could be from low quality/ cheap, but neither is it an overwhelming, heady sickening attempt at smelling pretentious and sophisticated. ( let me allow a few qualifications- a caveat -should you forge ahead reading...I cannot say I fully subscribe to the idea that words can ever accurately convey smell in a truly precise or meaningful way relative to the person reading the description. Everyone’s personal experience, and the perspectives they adopt-a sum accumulated through a lifetime of very subjective and rich amalgam of every sight, sound,texture, smell, though, ETC AD INFINITUM, that they’ve ever encountered -inevitably will shape and color what’s I’ve written to fit their schema, in ways I can’t anticipate or prevent. If it helps at all to give my review context, in a nutshell...I’m an avid traveler, reader, live music enthusiast, unabashed hippie, activist, in love with the cósmic journey and everything in it. One love, no judgment and getting in sync with the flow of the universe. My faves are Histoires des Parfums 1969, patchouli, Amber, bergamot, Marc jacobs marc Jacobs, MJ Honey, Gucci Rush, gap grass, Givenchy simply irresistible, etc<<<<my hope is that may make my review more readily understood >>

This is a bright, clean, citrusy scent that’s not to over whelming and it develops well throughout the day. It’s great to wear during warm weather months. It’s a perfect scent if you’re going out with friends in a causal setting.

Really, really nice...but not what I’m looking for
I’m conflicted about this one. It really is lovely - happy, bright, yummy even. I think that’s the problem. The mentioned bell pepper note that makes this so fine, also makes it almost food-like. And I am just not into gourmand fragrances to wear. If you are - JUMP on this one! It’s mighty fine. But I was brought up cooking southern/Cajun/soul food, and everything begins with “the trinity”, of which bell pepper is a huge part. I’m looking for sexy, not good enough to eat! lol 😂

Crisp, clean citrus
I really like this scent. It’s a nice, clean, crisp smell, and it’s a very pleasant bergamot. I’m wondering if it will smell better on my husband though, but I do really like it for myself. It’s definitely a year round fragrance, in my opinion.

Time for salsa dancing!
The second I spritzed this, i immediately felt my feet start moving and i really wanted to salsa. Spicy and sexy, this is definitely not a work place fragrance. The best time to wear this is to go out dancing, as this a fragrance that gets better mixing with your sweat due to the mandarin, green pepper and grapefruit notes. I would definitely buy a bottle of this. If you love feeling a little extra when you go out, this is the fragrance for you!

We need more Lemon Pledge
I wanted to like this but the over powering scent of Lemon seems to destroy any hint of the other ingredients. There are no subtle overtones just LEMON PLEDGE. My wife agrees and also noticed it doesn't fade away as you wear it. It just stays lemon pledge until it dissipates after about 3 hours, then it gone and I mean like you never had any cologne on at all... no hints... not residual... nothing.

Refreshing - Easy to Like
Wonderful Bergamot fragrance! Extremely likeable. Only 4 stars due to slightly weaker projection, sillage, and longevity. Scent is like cutting into a fresh piece of fruit and the zest filling the air. Summer - Day - Casual/Office/Hanging Out Total = 4 stars

Zesty
I love the smell of bergamot and earl grey tea, so I’m always looking for something that has that feeling. This doesn’t so much have that warm tea feeling but it is very fresh and zesty. The smell of the pepper really comes through and it reminds me of spending a warm afternoon in the garden as a little kid.

Citrusy & good for summer.
Really like the fresh critus & bergamot notes along with bell and black peppers. As others have noted, it lacks legs and fades pretty quickly. Glad i tried it but wouldn't purchase a bottle of this stuff. For refreshing citrus I'd prefer acqua di gio or lacoste (yellow bottle).
