Bergamot essential oil
Bergamot essential oil (FEMA# 2153, CAS# 8008-75-8) holds odor characteristics from fresh bergamot peel depending on the grade of maturation of the fruits. At the beginning of the crop, when the fruit is green, the odor will be refreshing and raw. When bergamot is yellow, by the end of its maturation, it will have a floral scent. Suggested applications include perfumery, in which the essential oil extracted from bergamot at the beginning of the harvest is most used.
