Summer Scent: Ermenegildo Zegna Uomo

Summer is the time to look dapper, feel good and smell great. Stick by this three-point rule and any discerning gent is sure to do very well. But to look after the third of these factors requires the discerning gent to find a summer scent that oozes masculine essence yet is still light enough to pass off during the warmer summer months.


Well it looks like Italian fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna has struck the right notes with the launch of Uomo this summer. Literally meaning the Italian for ‘man’, the latest scent based on the quintessentially manly notes of bergamot, cedarwood and patchouli is the one you’ll need this summer.


Ermenegildo Zegna cultivates its own bergamot in proprietary fields in Calabria, Italy, which combines its zesty notes perfectly with the grassy vetiver and the strong violettyne captive (an intense violet extract). The classic masculine note of cedarwood completes the union to provide a warm yet light scent that’s perfect for summer.


The vertical glass pillar design of the Eau de Toilette bottle with its polished silver collar and striated grey cap is a bold and powerful vessel. It’s the fresh fragrance the discerning gent will be frequently reaching for this summer.
