John Varvatos Artisan 2.5 oz

If you’re rocking a fragrance inherited from your old man, or relying on a goopy deodorant stick for your olfactory game, it’s time to mix things up. Kick off your new scent strategy with this subtle, summery eau de toilette from Motor City designer John Varvatos. It’s the fragrance equivalent of your favorite jeans and a just-washed tee: classic, cool, and easy-going. Even the packaging—a flask wrapped in hand-woven rattan—exudes laid-back class.

For My Man?

This smelled like boy, and maybe that was the point? I gave it to my husband to use. I don't think he has, but I know I wasn't

Not a fan

Not exactly a fan of this cologne, it smells a little bit musty to me. I was sort of confused as to why I was getting mens cologne in my birchbox.

Not My Thing

Unfortunately I really didn't like this fragrance. I wouldn't really want to smell it on a guy, and since I'm a girl, I'm not going to use it. Not my favorite thing to be included in a Birchbox.

My husband used the sample. I didn't care for the fruit smell.

I really disliked this perfume sample. It smelled so strong as soon as I opened my Birchbox it was really unpleasant and off-putting. I don't know if it leaked, it didnt' look like it did. I wouldn't gift it to anyone

smelled like a man

I think I will give this to my boyfriend as a stocking stuffer... Neither his or I liked it... It reminded me of the indies - weird..

Confused

I'm just confused. Based on the scent, I feel like this is for a man, so why is it my women's Birchbox? Also, the same is the same as the one I could get at a department store's cosmetics department. I am underwhelmed.

I didn't like the smell at all. It just didn't work with my chemistry. I wouldn't buy this one. Notable fan

WHY????
Sampled

Very disappointed in this sample. I can get this free at the department store counter - what am I paying for it for?! and why is it for men?! I get sharing for Thanksgiving but come on Birchbox, let me decide.

Just not for me
Sampled

I gave this sample to my boyfriend to try. Unfortunately, the smell was just too much. Too strong, and not quite earthy enough for our tastes.

I could see how someone else might really like it, though.
