Bergamot Terpenes Natural Isolate

Eleonora Scalseggi has this to say “Finding genuine Bergamot Terpenes (07/03/21) offered for sale to the general public is far from being an everyday occurrence, even less so offered in relatively small amounts, so generally an artisan perfumer who wants to use citrus terpenes will have to make do with orange terpenes, far easier to come across. A real shame, because orange terpenes do not possess the stark elegance, the sparkle, the floral notes, the pristine clean, dry tartness that only true Italian bergamot shines for.

If you are after timeless elegance there is no citrus like true bergamot and if you need citrus terpenes – a real staple in perfumery – bergamot terpenes are the best possible choice. Even when a decided citrusy character is not desired, bergamot terpenes will deliver impeccably, imparting just lift and freshness to the composition, and no obvious citrus notes. A relatively inexpensive proposition compared to the much more prized true bergamot essential oil.

Bergamot terpenes are a genuine top note, this is because they possess little staying power, lasting only a few minutes on the skin and a just a bit longer on the smelling strip. Perfectly liquid and colourless, this material is both alcohol and oil soluble, and will maintain longer its freshness if stored in the fridge once opened.”
