With so many fragrances launched each year it's hard not to be
underwhelmed by the heady glut of average scents that hit the
market. But when we recently had the opportunity to put our noses
to five new fragrances by Ermenegildo Zegna Essenze Eau de Parfums,
we were blown away by the quality of the notes. Each brilliantly
composed scent showcases an individual precious ingredient - those
being Bergamot, Oud, Neroli, Cardamom and Iris. The bergamot, for
example, which runs throughout the collection, is harvested from a
single field in Italy’s sun-soaked region of Calabria. We could
give you the marketing spiel and be done with it, but we'd rather
give you our word - these fragrances genuinely impressed. Each of
them boasts layers of subtle complexity and have great staying
power. What really strikes you is the quality of the signature
note, very natural yet powerful, soft yet structured. We're
delighted to be able to offer Rake customers access to this
exclusive collection (Harrods is the only other place you will find
This bold and iconic fragrance is tailored around Zegna’s
signature Bergamot, a noble citrus grown in Italy’s sun-drenched
Calabria region exclusively for Ermenegildo Zegna. Bergamot’s
brilliant, effervescent edge has been heightened by the energy of
spicy pepper. A burst of aromatic freshness from rosemary evokes
the crisp lines of sharp suiting refined by the glow of neroli
woven with vetiver. A base of lush tonka bean deepens the
composition with a luxurious layer of warmth.
Bright. Elegant. Expressive.
Three expressions of iris converge in a fragrance of sumptuous
warmth. Velvety and complex, iris’ rich texture is enhanced by
intense violet. Jasmine and musk lend modernity, while crisp violet
leaves add a sense of intrigue. A bright splash of Zegna exclusive
bergamot brings sophisticated freshness to the virile strength of
the signature. Finally, deepened concentrations heighten the impact
to create a fragrance that is truly unique.
Bold. Refined. Sensual.
Oriental Woody Amber
Magnifying the intensity of precious Oud Wood, this luxuriously
dark and mysterious fragrance opens with a wave of Zegna’s
exclusive bergamot set against the backdrop of opulent Rose.
Sensual patchouli deepens the blend with rich complexity and
lasting dimension while Zegna bergamot continues to thread
freshness throughout the bold, masculine composition.
Intense. Exotic. Sophisticated.
Category: Citrus Amber
The sparkling citrus note of Mediterranean neroli and the herbal
freshness of estragon illuminate an elegant heart of warm spicy
saffron and labdanum. Smoky incense with a touch of benzoin add
power, sensuality and long-lasting signature to a sophisticated
composition of light and dark.
Vibrant. Rich. Transportive.
