Z Zegna Extreme Fragrance Reviews

Here's another fragrance I used to own a handful of years ago. It was pleasant, sweet and a tad woody. It works great for the hot weather but it's a bit simple in my eyes. I liked it but I had to overspray like a maniac just to get any kind of sillage where I felt comfortable that others would smell it off me. It's not a bad fragrance by any means but I don't think it's all that special. If only the fragrance was more potent then maybe I would love it but because the strength is somewhat tame I can simply like it.

When I first tried it in an airport duty free shop, I thought the opening was horrid! I don't think I can repeat my exact words to the sales assistant that sprayed it on me!! But I bought a 50ml bottle within a few minutes. Why? Because the dry down was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! I didn't know much about scents back then, but the patchouli, cashmere wood and vetiver base just made me think this was the most masculine scent that I had ever smelt. I kept going back to my hand all through that flight and I did not regret getting a bottle. The opening really was harsh - it reminded me of Joop PH to some extent. I could just about make out a rose note in there, but otherwise there's a very metallic vibe to the opening.
The bottle was awesome too. The silver/metallic bottle combined with the rubber edge was just very cool and sporty.
The negative side about this review? Well, can't you see it's written in past tense? Sadly, this gem of a fragrance is no more. It's in the fragrant history books now. What a shame. Would have bought a lorry full if I'd known...

One of the finest fragrance i ever had. Simply incompareable to another scent, though so many others but this juice is just the best. It is long lasting, when you wear it you feel extremely confident because you know there will be people around you on a busy day but your scent just stands out.

I feel that good cologne from Zegna should be like this, i would give 9/10

The chrome/rubber bottle is out of this world and perfectly reflects the juice inside. ZZE contains some weird icy-metallic notes that make the scent appear very cold and uninviting to my nose.

There is a lot going on here, but I have never found out exactly what. It might be the gin note - something seems strangely out of place and makes it impossible for me to become friends with this fragrance. Too bad, since the bottle looked fabulous on my shelf.

Best of the Zegna's of all I've tried. Not so woody, not so musky. Just perfect!

It deserves 10/10

Really great. Refreshing, boozy opening with a great metallic rose note. Drydown becomes fresh- spicy and woody, with just the right amount of powdery touch. Not extreme to my nose. Very pleasant, unique and full of character and style. This is the best from Zegna, a hidden pearl, very underrated.

Zegna fragrances have switched from YSL beaute to Estee Laudeer and rumour is that Zegna Extreme will be discontinued. I hope not.

Sillage is average. Longevity yes could be better but not terrible. Around 4-5 hours. I highly recommend Zegna Z Extreme.

Sprayed on a tissue, this eventually morphs into a unisex fragrance. I thought this unwearable in the summer after buying blind, but now it's like unwrapping a surprise gift that lifts your spirits. It is a "broken mold" scent; really special and inspiring. Moisture/humidity must change the chemistry.

I finally got this today after smelling it a couple of years ago at an airport. It is as wonderful as I remembered it. The juxtaposition between the manly spice and barber shop rose makes for a unique scent. It's a shame zegna doesn't get more recognition for their quality products.

I just smelled the cap and the spritzer, and it reminded me of Terre d'Hermes. It's very woody, kinda spicy, and just almost a borderline of being bitter. It's quite nice, deep, manly, but not my must have.

Very manly and IMO unique to some extent. It lasts no more than 3 hrs on my skin, though. Maybe the best Zegna out there.

It is fresh and strong at the same time. The rose has a metallic tone which I detect very clearly. Not much into the rose note, even if well done, I pass.

Here's a serious one. Stern and sophisticated. Classy and mature. Categorized as "woody-spicy." A little old-school, a little modern. I'm lovin the touch of cashmere wood. So distinct. It's best to own the .33 oz tubes, because then you can carry it with you and re-apply as needed. Such a great scent shouldn't fade so quickly.

One of my favorites. Very spicy, sophisticated, I would recommend it for suit and tie events.

At first the longevity seemed bad, but it's reasonable. Could be better though.

4/5 from me (.5 points off for lack of longevity)

z zegna is a very casual and masculine fragrance. the fresh edition is aquatic and simply brilliant. this one, however, is too strong for my taste. if you haven;t tried any of the z zegna perfumes i suggest you try the fresh which is a limited edition..
