Vince Camuto – Bella : A Perfume So Full of Summer Fun Your Suntan Lotion Will Ask You To Wear It
When Summer finally arrives, you aren’t looking for anything more than freedom, sunshine and a place to go to find as much of both as you possibly can. You’re completely over having to worry about a schedule, a deadline, or how many layers you’re going to need to put on just to get the car started for work.
And the same goes with the style of scent you wear. Summer is a great time to wear perfume, because it’s the one time where simplicity and fun are exactly what you want in your life, so light, sweet, and energetic scents are the way to go.
So perfumes with a lot of citrus or tropical notes but not much else are your best bets. They have a lightness to them that will stand up to the heat, and an energizing quality that will help keep you out with friends later.
One ideal Scentbird pick for summer is Vince Camuto’s Bella. To be honest, there’s no better way to describe it than just by saying it’s delicious. This is simple perfumery done well – no major transitions, no complicated-sounding notes from exotic forests, just a refreshing, thirst-quenching dose of nectarines, bergamot and jasmine.
Bella is a ripe, round, tantalizing perfume. It’s a scent born for summertime – for wearing after long tanning sessions at the beach over big crazy drinks on the deck, and being awed by the sunset.
It’s both tropical and sweet, but not boring. The nectarine and jasmine pairing is as luscious as it gets – you can almost feel the skin of the fruit break and the juice bursting in your mouth right from the start.
It’s also definitely a weekend trip, “throw-and-go” style of scent. It’s designed to be gushingly sweet and fun to wear, and not a scent you have to think about all that much. It might work better in the late afternoon or early evening than as a morning option, and it’s better worn casual than formal.
But what it does, it does well. The yummy tropical fruit blended with that milky-sweet jasmine note is something your nose will never get tired of experiencing.
Which is good, because Bella will keep steadily providing that experience until it fades from your skin. There’s no real change from start to finish here – just the perfumed promise of a great trip to some part of the world where it’s always warm, bright, and fun to stay out late.
There’s a touch of amber in the base, but the drydown is still very much about ripe fruit and sweet white flowers all the way through. Vince Camuto’s Bella is what your suntan lotion is hoping you’re going to wear to the beach, and it won’t surprise you in the least when that’s only the first request you’ll get for this scent.
