Middle of the road, another office fragrance really. Strongly reminds me of dSquared He Wood.
In my review of the dSquared fragrance, I said it smells of sherbet refreshers - this is pretty much the same.
Citrus, light, but just... strange.
Perhaps Zegna ought to stick to clothing. I remember Zegna doing one or two passable fragrances in the ‘90s, but this latest masculine release is just depressing. It starts out on a pleasant, if unexciting, citrus top note, but soon turns harsh and chemical, with a hackneyed “aquatic” note, violet leaf, and grating artificial woods competing in some kind of infernal olfactory cage fight. Nobody wins – least of all the poor guy who gets stuck wearing this stuff.
Zegna Uomo is a great summer scent. It opens very citrusy and dries down to a sweet violet. It smells fresh and clean. Perfect for the Florida heat and humidity, since these two factors make it project even more. I get 6-7 hours when I spray it on my clothes. I love it!!
I didn't care for this much at first, thought it was just a simple bergamot fragrance, but boy was I ever wrong.
Without getting into too much detail, this smells like a better version of Donald Trump The Fragrance, mixed with old school Fahrenheit. I never got the Fahrenheit leather jacket, motor oil smell until using 1/4 of a bottle. This may even be better than Fahrenheit, because it's more versatile.
It starts off as like a pickle/cucumber/citrus, reminds me of this Gatorade drink flavor Cucumber Limon. It dries down into something much like Fahrenheit.
The more I wear this, the more it goes up in rating for me. It went from 3 stars to a high 4, maybe a 5 soon. I'm pretty strict with what gets 5 stars too. Really digging this, bought back up bottles, just in case it goes MIA.

I don't understand the hate its getting on here, in my opinion it smells good and unlike anything I have ever smelt before, which is why I like it as much as I do. A bit synthetic perhaps, but still amazing!
