In this ‘sub-family’ of chypre scents, the airy and fresh top notes are played up. Bergamot’s almost always one of the ‘pillars’ of a chypre; you may get even more of the sparkling quality of that note, in a fresh chypre. It almost goes without saying that anything described as ‘fresh’ is going to be a bit lighter; a fresh chypre may not last as long as a woody or chypre leather, since its focus is in the airy top notes rather than the longer-lasting base notes.
