Unadulterated Bergamot essential oil has a characteristic aroma with oily, herbaceous and/or balsamic, earthy undertones. The oil comes from the fruit of a small, delicate tree famously grown in southern Italy. Bergamot is most commonly used to flavor Earl Grey tea, however the scent of the essential oil is different from the more floral flavoring of Earl Grey tea. Bergamot is also largely used in perfumery, especially men’s colognes.
