Cosmetics are just like men and play an important role in our lives. In order to love someone, you must first judge them. At least you can ask the same questions to judge a man either your cosmetics.
Hunter Niels went on a date with Ermenegildo Zegna’s ‘Zegna Uomo’.
When I think of Ermenegildo Zegna I think of suits, rich fabrics and especially wool. Ermenegildo Zegna is known for the way they use the wool fabric. For that reason I expected a warm, masculine sense. However the fragrance pleasantly surprised me with a way more fresh and light smell.
2. Where does he come from?
Ermenegildo Zegna is an Italian luxury fashion house. Zegna is specialized in men’s clothing and was founded in 1910. Currently the fourth generation is running the business, which is still fully family owned. The fashion house is known for the luxury fabrics, and does not only produce for themselves but also for fashion houses as Gucci and Tom Ford (former Creative Director at Gucci).
3. How would you describe him?
Fresh, masculine and summer-ish. Citrus is one of the key notes, together with bergamot which gives it a bit more serious and masculine smell.
4. What attracted you the most about him?
It’s a very fresh fragrance, perfect for summer, but has a masculine twist. A very seductive mix. It makes me think of the hot summers I spend in Puglia, the Southern part of Italy.
5. What is his financial status?
A 100 ml bottle costs about €85,-
6. Where did you meet him?
The Zegna Uomo fragrance is available via the webshop of Ermenegildo Zegna, or beauty shops as Douglas and Ici Paris XL.
7. One night stand or long term relationship?
Zegna Uomo makes you curious. You want to smell it more and more. A super fresh, and seductive fragrance. Perfect for hot, mysterious summer nights.
