Ermenegildo Zegna are one of the most renowned luxury menswear brands to hail from Italy, and have managed to achieve a most sort after status of being the embodiment of a fusion between tradition and luxury. Founded in 1910 in Trivero, near the Italian Alps, a young Zegna dreamt of creating an ethically renowned textile company using only the finest of materials. Today the company is still run by the fourth generation of Zegnas, with the brand being available in over 100 counties globally and was pioneeringly the first luxury brand to have the vision to venture into the Chinese market back in 1991.
As the latest installment of the Essenze Collection, they have created three handcrafted, signature scents inspired by amber, incense and musk striking the perfect balance of sensuality, strength and masculinity. All three fragrances are distinctively paired with exclusively grown Zegna Italian Bergamot from Calabria, Italy – the common thread that unites all of the scents of the Essenze Collection. But each fragrance uses a complex and sophisticated composition of ingredients to return to the art of rich, deep, and long-lasting scents, which supplies the essence of the gold collection.
Amber Gold is the first addition that highlights stunning variations of the universally timeless Bulgarian Rose, in a richer and darker interpretation, with a perfect sensual union of undulating Amber. Exceptional notes come together through a special artisan extraction. With mid notes of Lavender Seillan Essence, the dry down is balanced with a duet of precious Ambranum and Benzoin Siam woven with Sandalwood, Patchouli and Vetiver for texture.
Incense Gold is the second addition that expands upon the intoxicating incense note with a multifaceted freshness of an aromatic complex of citrus notes, creating personality that envelops your presence. Perfect for layering, Italian Cypress and Italian Lemon blaze forth as top notes, while White Flowers, Jasmine Sambac Absolute and Lotus Flower enrapture as mid notes. The smoky Incense signature note weaves its way through rich Leather and Saffron, enhanced by the richness of Cypriol and Sandalwood to create an utterly captivating dry down.
Musk Gold is the third ultra-sophisticated addition inspired by the sensuality and mystery of Musk. It opens with vibrant accents of Black Pepper and Coriander, heightened by wild brushstrokes of Saffron. The heart is a modern fusion of textured Moroccan Cedarwood, warm Carrot Seed Heart LMR and magnetic Myrrh, reinforcing the fragrance’s deep and mysterious aura. Underneath, the hypnotic and sensual power of Musk is unveiled as it cascades over a powerful finish of dark Patchouli, rugged Leather and opulent Oud.
