Review: New-Look Zegna Bergamot is Intense!
Ermenegildo Zegna has revamped its luxurious collection of men’s fragrances which have been created to complement today’s, modern man. Introducing the new Zegna Essenze Eau de Parfum Collection, featuring all the classic fragrances with the intensity taken up a few notches, adding further longevity to this sophisticated and finely crafted collection of scents.
Each fragrance showcases a single precious ingredient blended with Zegna’s private reserve of Bergamot hand-harvested in Italy’s Calabria.
I was a huge fan of the original Italian Bergamot so I decided to try out the latest edition to see if I could notice any major changes to this much-loved classic.
Name: Ermenegildo Zegna Italian Bergamot Eau De Parfum
Fragrance notes: Bergamot, Pepper, Rosemary, Neroli, Vetiver, Tonka Bean
Described as: A bold an iconic fragrance which is energising and refreshing.
Wear it: Anytime especially in the warmer months. I enjoy wearing this fragrance in Spring and Summer, especially during the European summer! This scent is quintessentially Italian and transports me to the coast whenever I wear it. Think Positano & Amalfi!
Price: Ermenegildo Zegna Italian Bergamot Eau De Parfum 100ml $305. Available exclusively in selected David Jones, Myer and Ermenegildo Zegna boutiques.
The verdict: I’ll admit I’m always a little cautious when a brand reformulates its classic fragrances, in my experience their not quite the same. I’m happy to report that’s not the case with Italian Bergamot. The scent still has its bold, refreshing hit of bergamot which I enjoy most about this fragrance. While I wouldn’t say I noticed a huge change in the intensity, I did notice it lingered longer on the skin than the original and still had a good hit of citrus. Whether you’re spoiling yourself, a mate or even dad, Italian Bergamot will be a hit for any gent in your life this spring and summer.
