While most famous for its impeccably crafted luxury men's suits, Ermenegildo Zegna also makes some of the world's finest fragrances, extending them the same level of meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail that they do their fine clothing. To mark the launch of their new Essenze Eau de Parfums Collection, inspired by distinctive Italian style, The Rake partnered with Ermenegildo Zegna for a truly stylish celebration at The Arts Club in London's Mayfair.
Editor of The Rake Tom Chamberlin and Training Manager of Zegna Fragrances Stacey Kitt talked guests through the scents, educating us on the nuances of the ingredients and the fragrance-making process. Each of the fragrances - Madras Cardamom, Florentine Iris, Italian Bergamot, Mediterranean Neroli and Indonesian Oud - were on display, available for guests to sample throughout the night as they were treated to canapés and cocktails. All in all, the evening provided a delightful treat to all the senses and was a most wonderful introduction to Ermenegildo Zegna's Essenze Eau de Parfums Collection.
