Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Black is a scent for the life of the party

If your man-scent of choice happens to be Carolina Herrera’s iconic 212 VIP Men, chances are you’ll love what the American brand is rolling out this month. The latest addition to the 212 VIP Universe (alongside the feminine counterparts of 212 VIP and VIP Rosé) is the 212 VIP Black. A masculine cocktail that’s made for the manly man who’s typically the life of the party, it is a scent you’d wear right before hitting the town in your best threads. A new collaboration between Carolina Herrera de Baez, creative director de fragrances at the House of Herrera and perfumer Carlos Benaim, the fragrance’s story is deeply rooted in the city that never sleeps.

“I’ve created 212 VIP Black thinking of these new generations of men in this city who don’t think about boundaries or are afraid to express themselves. Youth culture moves about a new and impulsive environment; these millennials [are part of] a new and extraordinary generation,” says Benaim.


Echoing the seductive spirit of the 212 Universe, the 212 VIP Black defies conventions with its sensual yet bold concoction of amber and wormwood. A hint of lavender along with warm notes of vanilla and leather round off the fragrance in an adventurous way, cementing its status as a compelling scent for a certain type of man who dare to wear it.
