Impossibly bright, deliriously fresh, and enticingly nostalgic, Bergamote Soleil is the latest triumph from Atelier Cologne's consistently excellent Collection Originale of elegant citrus-based colognes absolues. Based around a very high concentration of superior bergamot harvested from the island of Calabria, Bergamote Soleil effortlessly weaves a narrative of old friends and joyful reunions against the sun-kissed coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
As the name (or any familiarity with its Collection Originale siblings) would suggest, Bergamote Soleil is all about the citrus. And what a citrus it is, a gorgeous Calabrian bergamot that overflows with crisp brightness and a just-right hint of bittersweet peel. Lush touches of ambrette and white amber lend gentle smoothness, while lightly spicy vetiver and cardamom give character without excess body, all atop a casually sexy oakmoss base. Joyous, refreshing and wistful, Bergamote Soleil is another exceptional cologne from an exceptional fragrance house.
