Shoe designer Vince Camuto is readying to launch his first women's fragrance bearing his signature, Vince Camuto Eau de Parfum. Not only does the scent bear his seal of approval, but his coat of arms as well, which is a recent addition to his design portfolio...
The fragrance, to be launched in September 2011, was composed by perfumer Steve DeMercado of Fragrance Resources and developed with licensee Parlux Fragrances Inc. It will be introduced more officially to the industry in the venue of the Tax Free World Association duty free convention in Cannes, France, in September.
The scent is billed as a floral chypre. Key words are "contemporary, sexy, and sophisticated."
The perfume opens on top notes of rum absolute and osmanthus nectar. The heart rests upon Bulgarian white rose, rich leather and night blooming jasmine. The base is anchored with vanilla absolute, sensual patchouli, warm amber Brazil and skin musk.
A men's cologne is in the works to follow a year after.
"The scent will be available in 1.7-oz, eau de parfum spray, priced $60; a 3.4-oz. size for $78, and a 5-oz. body lotion for $40. A 1-oz. size of the edp is on the drawing board for overseas distribution, Camuto added. In the U.S., the fragrance will be shipped in August to 1,000 doors including those of Macy’s, Dillard’s and Bon-Ton."
