Review: Ermenegildo Zegna Z Zegna New York
There are some cities in the world that you visit and leave their mark with you forever. For me most recently this city was New York – the city that never sleeps. From the trendy Meat Packers District to the creative streets of Broadway, the glamorous 5th Avenue and the light filled Time Square – New York City does have it all. To celebrate this diverse and captivating city, Ermenegildo Zegna has released a limited-edition fragrance which is vibrant, creative and unique to compliment this intriguing and compelling city.
Fragrance Name: Ermenegildo Zegna Z Zegna City New York
Notes: Rum, Davana Oil and Patchouli.
Described as: This woody oriental scent is masculine and modern. Designed for the young travelling man in mind, it blends intoxicating rum with aromatic Davana Oil to give this scent it’s creative edge. The base consists of woody patchouli to leave a lasting impression on the skin.
Wear it: Day or Night. Z Zegna City New York is well suited to New York’s cooler weather and can be worn during most seasons but may be a little too heavy for Summer. This scent lends itself well to most situations and can be worn to the office, a night out or a sunny afternoon catch-up with mates.
The Verdict: While this scent is said to be created with the younger gentleman, I was little surprised that it wasn’t a refreshing citrus scent. Z Zegna City New York is modern and stylish and has a masculine and almost yesteryear familiarity about it. It has a pleasant warmth to which reminds me a lot of Tom Ford’s Private Blend Italian Cypress, which is one of my personal favourites, so this fragrance had me at first spray. Regarding its strength on the skin, I found Z Zegna City New York lasted for a few hours without needing a top up.
The limited-edition Z Zegna City collection also features two other captivating scents, the fashion forward city of Milan and buzzing Shanghai.
