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.

Masculine but Overpowering

My man doesn't often wear cologne, which is quite the shame because I think mens' scents are often much more enjoyable than their girly counterparts. This scent, however, wasn't my favorite on him (or on me). I was happy to see it in my box, but it just didn't work for us. I think it was too heavy of a scent.

Too heavy for a picky fragrance person.

I am very picky about my fragrances and this one is ok. I *like* the smell but it is too heavy for my taste. I recieved a sample in my BirchBox but wouldn't buy the full bottle.

Not for me

I like the scent but not one I would like for myself or boyfriend but this would make a great gift.

Subtle

My brother said this was a little too feminine but it's not a bad scent. He wouldn't have purchased it for himself though.

A little too feminine

It smelled a bit girly for a men's scent. That said, it wasn't offensive, just not for my guy.

This cologne was nice...but not spectacular
Sampled

Every once in a while my man lets me spritz him with scent in the hopes that I will find something that drives me positively wild with desire, so that way I won't pay attention when he eats all the trail mix in the house or doesn't take out the garbage. This isn't the cologne that makes me forget that stuff. It's only attractive in very small quantities on him and then it gets too spicy and odd, making a big bottle a bad expenditure.

Just average

There was nothing too special about this. Smells good, but not GREAT.

Just OK

I wasn't blown away by this. I didn't dislike it, but it certainly didn't blow me away. My husband won't wear it, so I will be sticking it in my dad's stocking this year. Hopefully he and my mom like it more than we did.

Good for women, too!

The scent was too citrusy for my boy friend's taste, so I started to use it for myself. I think it works as a nice daytime scent for women, too!

Nice scent

I do like the scent of this product, but I'm probably going to have a hard time getting my boyfriend to try it. He is very low maintenance and not big on cologne.
