If you read through the notes on many fragrances, you'll notice bergamot is listed a lot. What exactly is bergamot, anyway? BERGAMOT
Bergamot is a citrus-scented essential oil extracted from the Citrus Beragamia tree, a native of Southeast Asia, but can now be found primarily in Italy and along the Ivory Coast. It is a popular aromatherapy oil and widely used in perfumes and colognes.
Bergamot is used to treat stress, depression, anxiety, anorexia, and a number of infections including skin infections like psoriasis and eczema. It is used to stimulate the liver, digestive system and spleen, and provide an overall lift to those suffering from a general malaise.
Popular fragrances that include bergamot are: Chanel No. 5, Shalimar by Guerlain, Angel by Thierry Mugler, Black Orchid by Tom Ford and Burberry The Beat, just to name a few.
