Vince Camuto has been perpetually impressing me. From their first perfume, to their chic clothing line, and now their newest cologne: Vince Camuto for Men. All pretty remarkable from a company known best for first making their mark on footwear.
In now what I expect from the brand, every part of this cologne was well-thought out. From the packaging’s royal blue interior, to the bottle encased in classy black leather, to of course, the Camuto family crest in gunmetal, it’s something I’d expect to see on a dresser belonging to, say, James Bond.
The cologne has notes of black pepper, nutmeg, musk, and yes, leather. Mix in vetiver and patchouli, the woody scents dominate. It’s a very refined, grown-up scent…much less for when he’s wearing his jerseys and drooping jeans and more for the ones in suits and cufflinks. I probably wouldn’t get it for your pre-teen bro (unless he’s basically Manny from Modern Family), and save it for one who means business because this one leaves an impression.
Vince Camuto for Men eau de toilette sells for $57 for the 1.7 fl oz, and $70 for the 3.4 oz on their website vincecamuto.com and major department stores.
