Roman conifer forest in summer
The novel Wood is the first new publication of the 20's in Zegna's Essence series Four kinds of conifers make you sit up and take notice, and all woods and their associated needle leaves deliver a warm, elegant scent embedded in Italian spices.
Whether it actually smells like this in Roman forests is something I cannot judge. But you get an idea how such a conifer forest could smell in sun and drought.
For me there is a certain bond with the Italian Cypress, although it seems to be much darker to me.
The Roman Wood is characterized by more sun and warmth and a more harmonious finish. But both stand next to each other, both have their authorization.
The Roman Wood starts with fresh spice, The Cypress is not superficial, but is well balanced with Sage and Rosemary, which is closely related to Sage anyway.
The coniferous wood note intensifies, although olfactorically I cannot distinguish whether pine or cedar are in the foreground. The otherwise so often attempted pencil association is not served here.
The pine adds another typical coniferous note, but far from everything we know from mountain pine oils. The fragrance becomes warmer and softer with vanilla and musk, but without losing the woody and spicy base.
Roman Wood is a fragrance for elegant gentlemen over 30, it is not a lumberjack scent, nor is it anywhere near the smell of a sawmill.
The heavy, somewhat unwieldy and dark bottle is refined with a noble label of fir green and gold. The heavy magnetic cap fits to the valuable overall picture.
The scent does not want to excite or make announcements. It is rather made for understatement and that is why I like it.
