Ambrette - a pleasant amber blast that is well executed greets me right from the start. A touch of brightness is accentuated by the lack of any dark or sharp edges in this opening phase.

The drydown introduces the other core component in the development of this creation: a lovely iris, quite typical and fairly rich in texture, very clean.

The base introduces cashmeran tones that are enriched by the ambery core that remained from the top notes, and with the iris gradually retreating the woodsy-ambery are the main accompaniments to the cashmeran in the base.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and a splendid thirteen hours of longevity on my skin.

Whilst this rather simple autumnal scent is not hiding a considerable use of synthetic notes, they are done not too badly, and they are very smoothly blended. Together with the very good performance this is one of the better products of this house. 3.25/5.

It's a bit like Timbuktu or Sables but drier. The Iris really keeps the wood from being too rough around the edges. This one grows on you.

Nice stuff this. Camphor in the background surrounded by masculine woods. Overall effect is a slightly icy masculine woods with hints of oriental-ness and musk.
It's a bit narcissistic but lovely nonetheless.

Cashmeran or cashmere woods almost always gets a bad press in reviews but here it is more judiciously used, meshing seamlessly with the starring ambrette seed to create a transparent woodsy musk, with faintly animalic nuances and an oddly compelling glue-like note. The featured iris is regretfully too transient but it offers a suede-like introduction to this unconventionally attractive scent. A sexy sleeper IMO.

I like this fragrance, but I had to work at getting to "like". Its a fragrance that needs instructions for application to deal with the odd combination of notes. A combination that is objectionable if applied too heavily and can not be smelled if applied too lightly - so just right is one spray spread out over several areas. Ambrette is a vegetal musk note that is a very expensive ingredient but packs quite a punch for its tiny inclusion. This is no animalic musk but has high pitched hazy almost woods like aroma that reminds me of the smell of latex paint. Ambrette is rolled into an earthy package with orris root and iris giving the overall tone of an earthy iris scent. The iris/ambrette is fronted by bergamot and mandarin pleasant entry and followed by gaiac and cashmere wood for dry resonating wood toned base. The bergamot and iris is almost becoming a house note for Zegna as this is exactly like the opening of Florentine Iris by Zegna and the same bergamot lemony opening is present in all of the Zegna Essenze. Peruvian Ambrette is distinctive, high class musk woods that is a drier earthier version of Florentine Iris for a unique aroma. This may not be the standout from Zegna Essenze (Haitian Vetiver, Javanese Patchouli, Indonesian Oud) but it is an excellent fragrance.
