Vince Camuto Eau de Parfum is the debut fragrance of the self-described "fashion footwear and lifestyle designer." The perfume launched exclusively this month on the HSN channel and website. Camuto appeared to promote his signature scent with wife Louise Camuto;. Both were involved in the development of the fragrance through what sounds like a selective process, rather than a perfume development from scratch. One day finally, as Louise Camuto was wearing a new sample unbeknownst to her husband, she provoked an aha reaction in him. Vince Camuto, who had been rejecting mods after mods, that day ondered what that great smell was in the room.
I never even knew Vince Camuto made perfume, I've always used his makeup brand, but I was super excited to try out the perfume. Vince Camuto has been in the footwear industry for 30 plus years (he was a co-founder of Nine West). He started the Vince Camuto Collection in footwear and then launched his collection into a lifestyle brand. The bottle is super gorgeous, and I knew this was my kind of scent. Even before I smelled it. Fit for a princess, the bottle is a sleek gold flacon with a red ribbon. The top is shaped like the logo of the company. This is how all perfume bottles should be designed. Classic yet fresh and stylish.
So what does it smell like? I'm having a hard time explaining exactly what the smell is, but I know i love it. It smells of glamour and romance, but there is no musky or dark strong scent, I get a strong whiff of leather and nectar, (which is the top note) It smells similar to Dior Cherie, which is one of my all time favorite perfumes, maybe that's what I'm so drawn to this one.
Vince Camuto describes this parfum as "sophisticated, sexy and contemporary"
Notes are: Top: rum absolute, osmanthus nectar. Heart: Bulgarian white rose, rich leather and night blooming jasmine. Base notes: vanilla absolute, sensual patchouli, warm amber Brazil and skin musk.
I can't stop wearing the new Vince Camuto Eau de Parfum. It is in my top 5 in my stash, and I am super picky when it comes to perfumes. It's either a hit or miss for me, and this is a major hit. The smell is just as great as his eyeshadows and handbags which I've always been a fan of.
Vince Camuto Eau de Parfum is available in department stores and on VinceCamuto.com for $60-$78
