Vince Camuto Original for Men description
Vince Camuto’s Original is one of those men’s scents that does a little of everything well, without grandstanding or trying too hard to smell great. There’s a little spice, a little citrus, some leather and a tidy dry down of solid masculine notes like vetiver, musk, precious woods and patchouli.
The spices are the strongest in the mix, with the black pepper in the top notes, the nutmeg and leather in the heart and the patchouli in the base creating a firm backbone of crinkly spices.
The citrus is very light and subdued up front, with translucent wisps of mandarin and bergamot drifting like slow morning mists behind the black pepper heat.
The lavender, nutmeg, and leather that make up the heart notes are sleek and interlaced well, so the soapiness of lavender disappears into nutmegs sharp aromatic edge. The leather is supple and soft, like a new jacket that lands on your shoulders with a whisper. The heart of this fragrance combines tried-and-true masculine scent notes in a very cosmopolitan and complimentary blend. Sometimes the best statement is an understatement. Vince Camuto’s Original unfurls into an artfully refined scent after the top notes fade.
The dry down is equally sedate and sophisticated. The precious woods accord, patchouli, vetiver, and musk are all tuned as low as possible, so only the auras of their aromatic, green spices show through. All the notes in Vince Camuto’s Original evidently have their own bespoke tailor.
And speaking of tailoring, guys, this is the scent to wear when you really need to sweat the details on how you look. The method perfumer Harry Fremont uses in this perfume to gloss each note with such refined reserve demands you follow suit. Having said this, you can just as easily wear this scent casually, but it will truly up your scent game if worn with the best gear you’ve got.
