About the name
Band moniker “The Bergamot” stems from a years-ago aromatherapy purchase at a health food store, according to Jillian Speece.
The Bergamot is an orange grown on the coastline of Sicily. Oil is extracted from the rind and is used in everything from saltwater taffy to Earl Grey tea to perfume.
“It’s revered as one of the most beautiful top notes that a perfumer can use,” Speece said.
