In the beginning of 2016, Atelier Cologne adds to their collection another fragrance dedicated to citruses, celebrating their elegance and tradition of citruses in eaux de cologne. According to the brand Atelier Cologne, the citruses were blended with the most precious ingredients for the first time, to provide them with extreme longevity, thanks to highly concentrated essential oils.

"They drove all night long taking turns... The minivan was the same one they had when they first met. He spotted it instantly, driving along the line of bergamot trees leading up to the villa. The table was already set for lunch. He wasn’t surprised to see them. It was as if they had always been together. This moment was a blessing and a reminder of so many treasured years."

Composition of Bergamote Soleil opens with Calabrian bergamot combined with bitter orange from Ivory Coast and ambrette from Ecuador. The heart of the composition accentuates Egyptian jasmine, Provencal lavender and Guatemalan cardamom, while the base consists of Haitian vetiver, Slovenia oak moss and white amber.

Bergamote Soleil is available as 30ml, 100ml and 200ml Cologne Absolute. It also arrives in roll on flacon 8ml. The fragrance can be purchased as 30ml, 100ml and $ 200ml.

Perfume rating: 4.21 out of 5 with 100 votes.

Bergamote Soleil Fragrance Reviews

Last week I bout a bottle of this fantastic fragrance and here is my opinion:
Totally a Citrus pefume with Spicy notes. I can smell Bergamot and Orange scent mixed with Vetiver and Lavender. The longevity is great and the projection is good. I think it is a good perfume for Summer and Spring. Nice perfume at all.

Atelier Cologne's citrus fragrances are always my favorite.
And this time, Bergamot Soleil won my heart again.

There are too many perfumes named "xxx soleil", but only few of them can make me feel the sunshine in the aroma.What should a "sunny" fragrance be like?At least in my view, it should be fresh and clear, without any dark side, and it should have the ability to bring us delight.Therefore...only(again, this is just my personal opinion)...only the citrus fruit have this power.Because the scent needs to be juicy enough, so it could immediately catch your attention.

Well let's talk about this fragrance——even though it was named "Bergamot", I agree with many reviewers here that the bitter orange scent has actually overwhelmed the bergamot.Unfortunately I am a super bitter orange lover, so it's pretty hard for me to be...completely objective.But I still have to say that...the bitter orange here is not really a "distracter" but a special way to make the whole scent more limpid.

That's what "soleil" should be...like in a warm autumn day the sunlight flows through the leaves and falls in a creek...then shines like hundreds of topaz...pure beauty.

To me this one opens with a very nice, fresh bergamot. Very vibrant. Then, after a few minutes it becomes a tad powdery which is something I wasn't expecting and I didn't quite enjoy. I can also smell a bit of the lavander. However as the hours go by, the bergamot fades along with the kinda sorta powdery smell, and the biter oranges take the stage along with a small hint of lavander. The orange is tart, quite juicy, sweet but not overwealming. I get a bit of the "soapy" smell on clothes but not really on skin.
I really like this one, although it needs more testing.
So far the sillage has been good for at least the first 4 hours and then starts getting closer to the skin. Still I get wifs of it every so often.
Longevity is good for me, but all the Atelier perfumes I have tried seem to be long lasting on my skin. Been there for 8 hours and still going.

As a side note, this one reminds more of Orange Sanguine than to Cedrat Enivrant. The opening does remind me to Cedrat, but it a way less "masculine" form. However the heart and drydown are closer to Orange Sanguine, but also on a less "masculine" form.

Shower fresh kind of perfume, I like it!
Natural and simply wonderful!

This starts out with a pure bergamot note, not as masculine as some others. Sparkling, refreshing...and lasts for about 30 min on my skin.
Then, sadly, the scent turns very soapy on me. Disappointing.

Sniffing from the cap, I found Bergamote Soleil very similar to Cédrat Enivrant and I was very confused. But once sprayed on skin and compared side by side, these two have indeed a few differences.

Bergamote Soleil opens with a herbal, slightly aromatic citrus peel smell. It's gently sweet and devoid of the pith's bitterness, which smells very much like the edible kumquat rind. In comparison, Cédrat Enivrant suddenly feels more soapy, and more herbal, bitter and tart. With time, Bergamote Soleil also turns a bit sweeter, brighter, and maintains an overall warmth, matching perfectly with "Soleil", while Cédrat Enivrant feels cooler, more zesty and invigorating.

The sillage is moderate to close, and the longevity on me is around 6 to 7 hours on a hot sunny day. Although overall, Bergamote Soleil and Cédrat Enivrant are both relatively realistic tart citrus fragrances, they do exhibit slightly different mood and characteristics, with Bergamote Soleil being more sunny, sweeter and less soapy. I'd recommend it, especially if you happen to find Cédrat Enivrant a bit too masculine.

A sparkling fresh citrus aromatic that is so realistic that it takes my breath away.Bright and cheerful, this is one that will lift your spirits on a humid summer's day The citrus is tart at first but mellows as it enters the floral heart stage of the development. The dry down is earthy and warm. Silage is moderate, longevity surprisingly good; I applied yesterday at 4:00 PM and at 8:00 AM I could still smell the basenotes on my skin. I highly recommend this as a worthy addition to your warm weather stable of scents.

Don't have much to say about this. To me they all smell the same: Lelabo B22, TF Venetian Bergamotte. It all comes down to performance and price.

Oddly reminiscent of Atelier Cologne Pomelo Paradis, which I just tried out this morning, Bergamote Soleil is a little fresher and a little less tart but at its center is, similarly, a citrus that is more toward the tart side. The bitter orange seems to fit, though it isn't that bitter, and I do get some of the lavender in the heart that gives it a bit of added, albeit different freshness. The vetiver/oakmoss/amber base works well, though--I like that aspect of it far more than the expression of bergamot at the top, which isn't as tart as the pomelo in Pomelo Paradis, but it's still pretty tart, a little too tart for my liking.

Performance is on par with most of the Collection Originale, nothing to write home about it, so as with many of the Ateliers, it comes down to whether you really like scent, and like Pomelo Paradis, this one falls short for me but it could be a unisex winner for many.

One of my favourite fragrances, I love it, it last on my skin more than 10 hours, it projects very good on my skin more than four hours.

My new favorite Atelier. So very much like cedrat enivrant but with less masculine base. Opens with crisp sharp citrus peel, a far better bergamot than I have sampled in a while.

Very summery, lovely bergamot & orange combo. Fresh, natural, relaxing, very pleasant. A good companion for every spring and summer day.

The scent perfectly matches the perfume color: bright yellow. It's like summer and sunshine in a bottle, and it reliably brings a smile to my face.

Bergamot and other citrus notes (mandarin oranges?) are immediately obvious and bring a smile on my face -- it smells like happiness.

I do get some lavender, enough for that soap-like scent. Jasmine shows up at around the same time as lavender.

It's not too sweet, not too fresh, not too citrus-like. Great light summer perfume -- or a winter one if you want to feel nostalgic about summer days.

I get almost no longevity with this. Maybe an hour on a good day -- just enough to get some base notes on my skin if I sniff diligently.

It's light enough that you can keep spraying it on, of course, but I would like some better scent payoff for the price.

Pomelo Paradis part deux. To me it opens with grapefruit rind and bergamot mixed with some spicy green aroma, like a lemon leaf. Lavender appears but it's like a natural lavender, slightly dry and elusive. It feels at this point like a grapefruit soda, not sweet, just effervescent.
Then the cardamom paired with lavender take this composition to a calm zone. Things settle down, the citrus symphony is tamed and now we are left with a subtle and clean landscape. A afternoon in Provence or a sunset in Amalfi.
Not thrilled, but not disappointed either.

Peppery bergamot, powerful sulfur citrus orange/grapefruit at the opening surprised me quite a bit. Where is the jasmine? Ah, it follows right after the acidic cloud fades away. It's clean, elegant, tea-like, contributes a lot with the team of lavender and spices to strengthen the volume and power of the perfume.

Overall nice, but I must be hyper-sensitive to white florals because I smell jasmine for a long time in this one.
The opening bergamot is bright, juicy and realistic but unfortunately this burns off fairly quick (though a very light citric feel remains throughout). There's also a bit of spiciness noted in the 1st hour, I'm guessing from the combination of ambrette, musk and cardamom.
From about the 1st-3rd hours, jasmine and lavender start to become quite noticeable to me. The drydown on my skin has a bright soapy (almost detergent) vibe and reminds me a bit of Prada's Infusion d'Homme: white floral with a touch of vetiver, but this is not as powdery.
It all died down and became a hovering skin scent after say 4-5 hours, yet it was easy to sense if I got my nose close for a long while (mileage will vary on skin type and application).
Rating: 6/10 (nice but nothing new)

Here, in the subarctic area, January is called the ox month since it's dark around the clock, all the money has been spent on Christmas celebrations and the closest thing to a vitamin source is a softened potato. That's when you start longing for snappy greenery, citruses and warmth. Stumbling on Bergamote Soleil under such circumstances is a rare success. The fragrance is indeed sunshine in a bottle.

The bergamot scent is very balanced, not at all bitter, but still vigorous. There's a metallic hint that pushes the fragrance forward, making it acute and elegant. This sort of stylish effect is surprising since the notes and the straightforward composition connects to easy, rural expectations. The composition presents the bergamot as if it carried the scent of the other notes inside itself. And since the green fruit is so dominant here, it's clever to allow characteristics associated with it to be mediated by other notes. Thus, this seemingly simple solinote expands while remaining insidiously rustic. Somehow there's a special feel to this perfume that I, for lack of proper words, would call oxidized. Jasmine, lavender and lush mandarin shine as attendants. The downside is that the fragrance is so short lived that I don't really get to experience the effects of the basenotes.
