About Madras Cardamom

The company say:

A masculine and mysterious fragrance expressed through intense spice. Aromatic spice notes of cardamom, pink pepper and Zegna’s exclusive bergamot tantalize the senses, while coffee Santos, vanilla bean and ambrox add sensuality and a gourmand warmth. A sense of depth and character Is revealed through the smooth textures of Virginian cedarwood, vetiver and citrus absolute. Pair it with a warm suede bomber jacket rocked with rich leather sneakers.

Reviews of Madras Cardamom

There is one review of Madras Cardamom.
From another source, the notes for Zegna Madras Cardamom are top notes: Cardamom, Pink Pepper and Bergamot; middle notes: Coffee and Virginian Cedar, base notes: Vetiver, Labdanum, Vanilla and Ambroxan.

I have worn this fragrance for a couple of years now and never realized it had coffee as a note until writing this review. I categorize this fragrance as a BIG SPICE, and thats what I like about it. The cardamom dominates the spice blend with a hard dark metallic density that covers the light scintillating Baies Rose/ pink pepper for a single note of dark warm spice. The spice warmth comes from the labdanum and vanilla at the base with sparkling bergamot heart that together with Ambroxan propel this dark spice to soar. Madras Cardamom is a reliable dark spice, winter friendly fragrance. Like many of these Zegna Essenze fragrances distribution is weak and it is very difficult to find a bottle of this nowadays. A very good masculine spice blend. Rating 3 / 5.
