Bergamot, prized by perfumers for its freshness and elegance in fragrances is the inspiration for Tom Ford’s latest Private Blend- Venetian Bergamot.
The blend reimagines sun-drenched citrus from Italy’s South and Venice, the city of grand palazzos, canals and the famous confluence of trade in rich florals, precious woods and warm spices.
Fresh and citrusy, Venetian Bergamot opens with bergamot essence from Calabria, wrapped with luxurious citrus notes. A spice trio of black peppercorn from Madagascar, pink peppercorn and ginger essence supports the top notes with warmth.
The mid note consists of rich floral essences with Madagascan ylang yang and its spiced floral note, magnolia from China and Gardenia.
The base of the fragrance is rich, solid and resinous, with two species of Cedarwood; Pepperwood®, a unique molecule, contributes a green-woody dimension with nuances of black pepper and milky Sandalwood extraction from Australia which offers a melted, skin-like warmth. Roasted tonka enhances the coumarin-vanilla warmth while amber notes and a cashmere accord bind the fragrance to skin, extending and prolonging Venetian Bergamot’s mark.
