Fragrance Review

Ermenegildo is one of my favorite designers and this is sustained not solely by the fact that I bought myself 2 fragrances from this house over the years (Essenza di and Intenso). On top of that, last summer, during my vacation in I sampled the latest creation from , called Forte and my conclusion was more than favorable (I published this review at the beginning of March).

Z Zegna is the second perfume launched by (from a collection that’s exclusively masculine), which appeared on the market in 2005. The scent belongs to the olfactory group and was developed by , and . I sniffed it soon after its apparition, occasion on which I discovered a nice fragrance, based on a few special ingredients.

Z Zegna starts off with a blend of Sicilian bergamot, rosemary, Casoar fruit (encountered in New Guinea and comparable to blueberry) and Mirabelle plums. This combination of fruits bestows upon the perfume a Mediterranean touch. Later, in the mid development, the scent turns spicy, thanks to a mixture of white pepper, nutmeg and iris. The dry down arrives much later, and feature accords of Cashmere wood, oakmoss, white musk and patchouli.

The bottle that holds Z Zegna exhibits a modern and masculine look, in a combination of glass, steel and black rubber. The transparent glass reveals a blue shaded liquid, while being enfolded by the black rubber with the logo”Z”  engraved on it and topped with a steel stopper. Overall, Z Zegna is suitable for a dynamic man, characterized by a classic style.
