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.

not bad
Sampled

While it was different than what I would normally choose, I did like it. I'm going to have my husband put it on tomorrow and we'll go from there.

Surprise!
Sampled

This was so fun to receive! My husband was quite excited to get in on the goods, and I was excited to share. What a fantastic surprise! It's nice, but we are Chanel for men fans!

fresh androgynous scent
Sampled

This is a fresh scent, I actually have no idea if it's supposed to be for men or women. I think either could get away with wearing it, as it is a "clean" scent sort of like CK One, from back in the day. There seem to be some floral undertones, as well

So-So

I thought the scent was a bit feminine for a man. I would not recommend it to the men in my life.

More for a woman
Sampled

This smelled ok. Very light and doesn't last long but definately not very manly smelling. At least not what I like to smell on a man. It was ok for me though esp combined with a flowery lotion. Still if its in my sample box I want it for me so next time but a woman's perfume sample in the box.

Nice

I like this scent and gave it to my husband. It's light and fresh, but I won't be buying it because he rarely wears cologne. Too bad.

Nice Scent

Nice scent -- enjoyed getting it in my Birchbox. I typically would not have purchased this, but its a great winter fragrance.

Ehh

The scent was just alright, my husband has been wearing Kenneth Cole Black for awhile now & I much prefer that to this sample, but it was fun for him to try something new!

A matter of preference
Sampled

Thought it was a bit awkward to just give this to a coworker or friend, may be easier to give if you have a significant other. The smell is more musky/manly i guess, it's not high in bright citrusy notes... more of slow warm musky smell. So really just depends on the guy and what you like on the guy. Have to smell it to really make a judgment, but it's not the typical axe-smelling / fresh / sporty kind of smell.
