Vermeil Black Cologne by Vermeil, Vermeil black, the namesake creation of vermeil, is an excellent scent for any man to have on hand as he goes about his everyday business. The key scent notes that really define this fragrance are tangy bergamot and a soft jasmine that contrast nicely and make an almost tobacco-like scent. Middle notes include violet leaf, patchouli, and black currant, which add a little more spice to the deliciously mellow overtones buyers first experience when opening the bottle. The bottle itself adds to the manly, rustic charm the scents attempt to impart. It’s shaped like a rustic cigarette lighter, a fact that goes perfectly with the tobacco like smell of the various combined scent notes that went into making this unique creation.
