Perfumed Alphabet: B is for Bergamot

colognes

 

A hallmark of classic colognes,

That burst of clean, fresh—bergamot!

As a top note, very well known;

Though citrus, edible it’s not.

 

It greets the nose with zing and zest

From tops of fragrance pyramids.

Then, after a half-hour at best,

Heart notes tell you that it’s vanished.

 

With many hearts it’s played, and well

The florals, spices, fruits, and greens

All vouch that bergamot is swell

In perfume, as in Earl Grey tea.
