Fragrance Of The Month: Ermengildo Zegna Acqua Di Bergamotto EDT

Here’s why you need to know about Ermengildo Zegna. First of all, it’s a family owned and operated Italian fashion house—four generations and counting, yo, taking you back to 1910—that concentrates on crafting high-end men’s clothing and accessories. Second, they’re the largest menswear brand in the world, producing exquisite fabrics and designing them into suits for Tom Ford, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Dunhill, to name a few. Third, they create outstanding men’s fragrances.

Which brings us to the point of this article: introducing you to the couture house’s Acqua di Bergamotto EDT.

Inspired by the citrusy notes featured in previous eaus, Italian Bergamot and Sicilian Mandarin, this equally Mediterranean-esque scent is as fresh, zesty and aquatic as its name implies. What you won’t expect however, is the unique juxtaposition of the juice’s floral-herbal notes with its salty-marine ones. And they’re divine. Why? Because the overall effect is not overpowering, yet lasts all day and well into the night. It’s clean and refreshing with an undercurrent of raw sexuality and its strikes the perfect balance between emulating a sea-air breeze with alluring warmth.

The bottle holds classic appeal, too with it’s solid square flacon and weighty silver cap.

So while the Zegna line remains strong with decades of time-trusted tradition, this liquid incarnation provides a contemporary and spray-worthy twist. And that, is the fourth thing you need to know.

Ermengildo Zegna, Acqua di Bergamotto EDT comes in 50 ml for $110 and 100 ml for $135. It’s available at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada.
