    In Melito di Porto Salvo (25km from Reggio) there can be found two treasures — the first is the holy image of the Madonna of Porto Salvo, and the second the locals call "Green Gold"… Bergamot Melito.

    The finest bergamot in the world grows in the Calabrian region of Italy and Melito di Porto Salvo is home to the most revered crops. For that reason we present it here in its purest form. This is not bergaptene or furocoumarin free. This is 100% pure and natural green bergamot oil and you will never find better.

    Hand selected by Fraterworks, this is the very same quality bergamot used by master perfumers such as Jean Carles, Ernest Beaux, Edmond Roudnitska, the heads of the House of Guerlain and many others.

    Fortunately, while IFRA restricts the amount you can use of this oil, it is still perfectly permissable up to 0.4% of your finished fragrance. Max it out and then top up with our superior Bergamot Oil FCF Calabria which is, in itself, a masterpiece of modern citrus meets molecular science.

    Origin: Melito, Calabria (Italy)
    Part: Peel
    Method: Cold pressed at source

    Appearance: green liquid
    Longevity: 4 hours on a smelling strip

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 0.4%
    IFRA 49: 0.4%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...

    Label Requirements

    Ingredients may need to be listed as per your local legislation based on data found in the EU allergens report.

    Additional Requirements

    For Trade Use Only

    Bergamot Melito from Capua 1880 : One of the best and very usefull citrus oil

    A full body bergamot oil, with nuances of fruit and sweet. It can mask and round of harshness of synthetic meterials in the composition and make the compound smell natural with fantastic and unique top notes.
