My other favourite from the bunch is Z Zegna, which is such a delicious hypnotic scent. Very fresh and clean this is for Mr tall, dark and handsome city type of guy. With an indulgent base of cashmere, wood and patchouli the crisp notes of white pepper, iris and rosemary makes for a very interesting intriguing blend. I also love the little added touch of the magnetic lid to the Z Zegna bottle.
Zegna Forte has a dark ombre’d bottle. This is a lot lighter then the other two scents and has a sweeter undertone. Strong vanilla, pink peppercorns and lemon notes layered with a lighter base of musk and sandalwood. I really liked how one could actually pick up each note and admittedly I would wear this scent myself. It has a really clean sweet scent and is very refreshing.
Zegna Intenso is the more oriental of all the scents with green mandarin, cardamom and pink peppercorn. It comes of delicately spicy and quite fruity without ever becoming too sweet. This is perfect for a sporty man and even though it is called Intenso it is rather light.
All Zegna men’s fragrances are available at Edgars Red Square.
