Peruvian Ambrette by Ermenegildo Zegna. I had always ranked this release amongst my least favourite from the Zegna Essenze line, and I had dismissed it as (at best) a soft amber/woody scent, and (at worst) a touch unpleasant/animalistic. I had bought this blind back when it was first released, as at that time I had the complete Essenze collection and couldn't conceive that Zegna would have a mediocre release. Unfortunately, my first impressions were exactly that; a somewhat boring amber/wood. Well, imagine my surprise today when I took this from the back of the wardrobe on a whim to give it another go. I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice this is! I detect a pleasant combination of amber, iris, musk, and wood. At first, it's a bit cold and stark feeling, but soon transforms into a warmer comfortable cashmere cloud. I'm unsure if my tastes have changed over time or if this has somehow improved over the years by sitting in the dark at the back of my wardrobe? Regardless, I'll have to re-think my rankings of where this sits in my Zegna Essenze collection.
