The Vince Camuto brand is relatively new here in South Africa but gaining strides because of their beautiful shoes, handbags and fragrances. Vince Camuto was an American women’s footwear designer, best known for co-founding the brand Nine West. In 1999, he sold Nine West and in 2001 started the Camuto group. In 2005 he launched his namesake footwear line, Vince Camuto. In 2014 the brands worth was estimated to be over $1 billion.
My favourite Vince Camuto shoes
While I’m a big fan of the shoes and bags, I’m really smitten with the fragrance line. Below are some of my favourites that I am also giving away so you too can try them.
Amore Vince Camuto
“I wanted to create a scent women would fall in love with and would make others fall in love with them. There is something beautiful and alluring about a strong woman’s sensuality that inspired me to launch Amore, it is a dedication to love,” says Vince Camuto when chatting about his inspiration behind the fragrance, Amore.
Amore Vince Camuto (R1655 for a 100ml EDP) limited edition is inspired by passion and romance and opens with sweet and juicy notes of frozen clementines, passionfruit and blackcurrant buds. The heart notes are supremely feminine and include freesia, orchid, lotus and lily of the valley. The base notes are warm and comforting and contain cashmere wood, sensual crystal amber, musk and sandalwood that leave a warm, creamy trail on the skin.
Fiori Vince Camuto
Fiori Vince Camuto (R1655 for a 100ml EDP) was inspired by the blossoming delphiniums in Vince Camuto’s personal garden.
I adore the luminous and bright opening notes of pink grapefruit drops combined with luscious white nectarines in the first accord of this lovely scent. The heart of Fiori is enriched with elegant iris and fresh freesia while the base is composed of a blend of creamy sandalwood and blue cedar. I’d best describe it as a soft and contemporary scent.
Vince Camuto Femme
Vince Camuto Femme (R1655 for a 100ml EDP) is a modern fusion of femininity and confidence and is best described as an oriental fruity fragrance. Elegant florals of jasmine, rose and iris and spicy citruses and pink pepper take one’s breath away. The warm, sensual drydown of patchouli, amber, vanilla and musk leaves one wanting more. Of the three fragrances, this is my favourite.
Vince Camuto Homme
Aside from the clean, luminous and very refreshing juice, I just adore this flacon that’s covered in navy blue leather.
The Vince Camuto Homme (R1485 for a 100ml EDP) really evokes a Mediterranean vibe thanks to its opening notes of tart lemon, ozone and gin. The heart of fennel, blue cypress, juniper berries and French lavender give the scent quite a sophisticated feel. The base of cedar, hot musk, white birch and Artemisia add a subtle sexiness to the fragrance.
