I’ve always been fascinated by how fragrance can trigger memories and emotions. I’ve had countless situations when I’ve brushed by people and their scent has transported me to my past and reminded me of people and events (all good of course!). The same happened when I first sprayed the newest fragrance by Ermenegildo Zegna. I was instantly reminded of my recent trip to Southern Italy. Having such fond memories of this trip, I find this fragrance conjures up feelings of excitement and happiness for me with each spray.
