Reviews of Zegna Colonia

Very bland and not much use for it

Received it as a gift about three years ago and its been pretty much sitting without any use. The bottle is still almost full. I tried to use it every now and then only because it felt weird throwing out a lot of cologne at once but really couldnt wear it. It is not really repulsive in any way, its just that it has no character at all. Sorry I am not an expert and cannot break down the notes and such, I just know a good cologne when I smell one :) This one is nothing special and easily forgotten.

Somewhat disappointed with Lie and Andrier, they have an impressive curriculum and this perfume is not their best by any means. The same goes for Zegna, I expected more from that house than what is offered here.
It opens very italian indeed, a very orangy note supported by cardamom that is very pleasant, but then the horror of the heart makes its appearance, a clashing iris with violet that is plain and simple disgusting, luckily is it very short lived and then the cedar takes command for the rest of the life of the scent.
I like the opening, I like the drydown, but it is the heart that repulses me, and for that I cannot give this perfume a thumbs up.
Sillage and Longevity are adequate.

very watery but clean but no stamina. it's like a tiger that has been shot in 3 legs. not much more fight left in it. stays for less than 2 hours. barbershop vibe to it..

I bought the 4.2oz bottle thinking I'd love it. I think I've just been too optimistic with Zegna fragrances.

You know, Zegna loves their bergamot, and that's what hits you as soon as you apply it. It's fresh, but comforting--especially with the iris hits. Then it goes woody.

If Z Zegna grew up with enough money, but remained the boring, and stupid person he was as a child, this is what he would smell like. Nice enough, but just... boring. Unoffensive.

Zegna Colonia is a well-balanced fragrance of the barber shop genre.
Clean and fresh, I have received many complements while wearing this one.
Longevity is decent. Fresh Clean and a little woodsy.
Not original in it's notes, but it's balance and projection are worth giving this a try.

Light cedar smell with a few smoky tones due to resins added. The iris does give a little powdery feel.
Opens great but then it's gone within few hours. Subtle and close to skin.
