Fiori Vince Camuto description
Vince Camuto’s Fiori is a limited-edition skin scent with notes of nectarine, grapefruit and an almost dessert wine feel, as if you’re perfuming yourself with expensive dry Riesling or Moscato. It’s a very subdued scent, ideal for attending weddings or on a visit to a major museum – really, any event needing a touch of reserved sophistication.
Fiori means “wildflowers” in Italian and there is definitely a little bit of the outdoors in this fragrance as well. The iris and freesia floral notes in the heart add a wet sidewalk shine to the cool nectarine tones drifting down from the top.
But even in the heart, a quiet restraint is present – Fiori stays very close to the skin, and it’s charms lie more in the feel and texture of the scent than in the power from the notes themselves.
There’s no operatic floral drama with Fiori – its artistic twin at a museum might be a Dutch Still Life, or a portrait of a young woman in a white dress carrying a basket of freshly-picked flowers. Each note stays pitched to stay close - there are no sudden shifts in tone or depth. Fiori is not so much a “Look at me!” scent, but more of an “I noticed you looking this way just now…” perfume.
It might be an ideal pick for a more introspective woman, one who appreciates fine details over showy statements. Fiori has a hidden depth to it, but one that you might have to spend more than a single evening exploring to fully appreciate.
The blue cedar and sandalwood in the drydown add just enough nuance to frame the floral heart. There’s a hint of dry sharpness from the cedar, and a slight lushness from the sandalwood, but nowhere near the tangy, creamy lushness you might expect.
Fiori ends just like it starts – with subtle hints and an inner calm that’s best worn when you want to be fully noticed, but are completely comfortable not being the main event.
