Zegna Intenso is the third fragrance for men of the Italian house Zegna. The first perfume demonstrated Italian elegance, the second Z Zegna is a fragrance for younger audience, and the third Zegna is entirely about seduction.
The perfume composition is created on the contrasts of light and dark notes. Such (visual) technique is called chiaroscuro what in Italian means ‘light and shadow (dark)’. If you are tired of the warm day’s bright light, just close the blinds, as the darkened room relaxes your eyes and awakens your imagination. The Intenso bottle exactly reminds of the play of light and shadow in a room with closed blinds. The sensual chiaroscuro play can be seen on the ad poster. The same principle Daniela Andrier applied in the perfume composition.
The light notes are: mandarin, lemon, cardamom and pink pepper at the beginning. The dark and sensual notes lie in the heart and the drydown: iris, vetiver, cedar wood, amber, sandal wood, vanilla, Tonka bean and musk. The perfume was created in 2007.
The nose behind this fragrance is Daniela (Roche) Andrier.
