Change is in the air at Ermenegildo Zegna with the appointment of a new artistic director and a revamped brand direction. The newest fragrance in the Z Zegna collection is said to coincide with the brand’s updated vision, which is all about the evolution of the urban man whose life combines technology, sport and fashion.
Fragrance Name: Ermenegildo Zegna Z Zegna Energy
Fragrance notes: mandarin, lemon, galbanum, Angelica root, lavender flower, Geranium, hedione, sandalwood, vetiver, ambergris, and musk.
Described as: Sporty, fashion forward and energising. The fragrance opens with refreshing citrus notes that provide a sparkling introduction, before revealing earthy green accords and settling on the skin as a sophisticated woody scent.
Wear it: Day or night to compliment your urban or sporty look. This fragrance is suited to most occasions and is ideal for wear during the warmer months or when the sun is shinning. Wear it to a casual lunch, running weekend errands or when catching up with mates.
Price: Ermenegildo Zegna Z Zegna Energy 100ml EDT, RRP $110. Available from Myer, David Jones and Sephora stores nationally.
Verdict: For a refreshing fragrance it lasts on the skin. Z Zegna Energy travelled with me to Bali recently and I found that even in hot and humid conditions, this fragrance lasted on my skin for up to six hours. There is nothing better than a fresh scent that lasts all day especially in sticky conditions.
