(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

very citrusy
I added this one to my queue because I love the smell of Magnolia. There's something about this perfume that makes me like but I don't love it. It's very citrusy almost like fresh squeezed lemons or orange peels. It comes off very acidic then tones down and you can almost get a whiff of the floral. Very summery like drinking a margarita. Probably wouldn't buy it again.

Very Different
This perfume smells like a tequila shot. Or a margarita. Top notes of lime, yet very salty?! Which is odd and pleasant at the same time.

Not my favorite
I don't love this fragrance. It smells slightly acrid and seems heavy on the alcohol. It's very citrus forward and fades quickly. I like citrus-y scents but this one is kind of artificial and flat.

Love this scent. Woodsy and natural, great for everyday wear and honestly any occasion. I love briskness of it. Stays for a while and is still very pleasant as it fades.

This is one is was interested in because I love bergamot but to be honest, I’m either going to give it away or throw it away. To me, it’s not a pleasing scent at all.

good everyday scent
This is nice for an every day scent. I like to wear it to work because it isn't overwhelming and people seem to like it. It is a little spicier than I expected but overall a nice clean citrus scent. I feel like it's a more grown up version of Clinique's Happy

Spicier than I expected
This scent was stronger and spicier than I expected. I definitely smell more of the green pepper and pepper than I expected from a "citrusy scent." It's nice for when I'm looking to wear something sassier with more of a kick to it but like some other reviewers mentioned, I felt it faded within an hour or so. I won't be ordering a full bottle or second sample.

I'm loving the fresh scent of this perfume, but there is some sharp spice to it that I can't put my finger on. I like it but I'm not sure if I will buy it again.

Too much Lemon
I was not really feeling this scent... it was nice at first, but after a few sprays of it.. the citrus was a bit over powering. (Smelled more like Lemon Pledge the more I wore it)

I love citrus, but am used to cloyingly sweet overtones. This was so light and genuine! I'm going to France the first week in April ...I'm going to reorder this scent to bring with me.

fantastic scent with no legs
I absolutely adore this scent! It starts out smelling exactly like lime, then settles down to a more mellow citrus scent. The only problem with this fragrance is it has no legs whatsoever on me. The scent is pretty much gone in an hour.

Unapologetic and fresh
This vibrant citrus scent doesn't pull punches. It adamantly refuses to invite any other scent families to play as if doing so would compromise the passionate showcase of bergamot, grapefruit and green pepper. It comes on strong and lingers with an aggressive dry down but doesn't last the whole day. I would hesitate to reapply mid-day unless I was at home-- a single spray immediately fills the room with sharp bergamot and may overwhelm a delicate nose.

Use sparingly
At times it smells very citrusy, other times it smells more musky. There's an undercurrent of something that lingers longer than the initial scent. I cant wear it everyday but its pretty nice on a colder day.

Citrus with spice
I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this, I'd heard good things, but typically I'm not a fan of bergamot scents, but I decided to stick with it anyway. This is definitely one of my favorite scents now. While it does have that citrusy bergamot scent up front, it has a very masculine spice that becomes more apparent after the dry-down. Really like this scent.

Not a fan :(
I thought I was going to really like this because of the bergamot and from the reviews, but it definitely is a strong citrus, floral smell that I just can't get into.

Fruit Loops
I was very much looking forward to this scent, for me, it has a very chemical citrus fruit smell that is reminiscent of fruit loops.

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.

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.
