Maybe I am a little obsessive about the gym and my 8.5, but I wear it to the gym because it smells so good with a healthy dose of sweat!
Here is a professional breakdown of 8.5 Fragrance I think this will help explain the actual scent
8.5 has been compared to Tom Ford’s Oud Wood, Tobacco Vanille, Marc Jacobs’ BANG or anything by Robert Piguet Fracas,
8.5 fragrance notes
Leather: A proprietary blend of fragrance oils that recreate the essence of modern leather, invoking the essence of fetish gear or motorcycle jackets.
Coconut: a mixed blend of coconut and Tahitian vanilla that sweetens and deepens with wear. Giving a warm and sensual mid-note that offsets the hard top notes of the Black Leather.
Rare Woods: A secret blend of exotic woods that include Cedars, Balsam and Cypress. These oils are very therapeutic and soothe and heal the skin as well as give 8.5 it’s deep natural base notes
These fragrance oils are sourced from all over the world and some are aged over 2 years to increase the depth and complexity of the scent.
The design concept was to create a fragrance that invoked a highly masculine and intensely sexual scent that adapted to the individual wearing it.
Beyond the novel packaging, the scent itself is a sophisticated fragrance that responds to the wearer’s natural body chemistry and creates a lingering evocative essence.
Notes: Masculine, Sexual, Clean, Earthy, Hypnotic, Modern, and Youthful
From the Time Out article
“I’m wearing one of my Mykki Tees. I like this shirt because it’s irreverent and forces the viewer to change their perspective on something they’re already familiar with. You’ll never look at cartoons the same way again.”

Dubbed as “a unique sexy, dirty fragrance that is activated by a man’s natural scent, creating a hypnotic, narcotic essence that people will crawl across the room to get closer to” might sound contrived, but it literally is the case with 8.5 by Matthew Camp. I’m a fragrance aficionado – particularly when it comes down to anything darker, musky and rich whether it is Tom Ford’s Oud Wood, Tobacco Vanille, Marc Jacobs’ BANG or anything by Robert Piguet Fracas, so when I first experienced 8.5 (at 4am in New York last week) my mind was blown. The oil-based scent varies tantamount from person to person and acts as a genuine aphrodisiac tapping into the (im)purity of humanity. It’s almost beyond description. Watch the NSFW campaign film below which only begins to give you a taste of what you can expect. You can order online here.
