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.

Beautiful light scent

Thoroughly enjoyed the scent. It was light and perfect for work but also could wear it out on the town. I would recommend this scent for those looking for a light classy scent.

Yummy for the Hubby!

I gave this to my husband, and we both agree it smells great! He usually wears Burberry and would consider purchasing this after that runs out- which is saying something coming from him!

My bf now smells yummy

Got this in the November BB and gave to boyfriend. Subtle scent but very nice. Not very strong (have to be close) but that could be from applying from a small vial vs. a spray from a full size.

Overpriced

My boyfriend liked the 'fresh out of the shower' scent but it's nothing distinctive that will blow your socks off. We also noticed that the scent tends to change over time and doesn't necessarily smell bad but we were surprised since that issue is normally associated with cheap fragrances. For the steep price tag of product I've found better colognes but suppose its a matter of preference. I do like the product just think the price tag exceeds the quality.

Very stong smell

Wasn't a favorite :(
This EDT had a VERY overpowering smell. My husband compared it to Lemon scented Lysol. It wasn't for us.

A light bright fragrance for all you natural beauties

I found John Varvatos Artisan eau de toilette to be a nice addition to my regular go-to perfumes. Light and summery this scent is practical and not to fussy. It has a top note of citrus, a slightly herbal/ floral mid-note, and it finishes with a woody earthy layer. It is unique and airy, and fresh. I do not feel as though the scent was very unisex, it's fairly floral and delicate, very feminine. And much like the description states: it's very much like slipping into your favorite skinnies and a classic white tee. Hope you enjoy!

from light to sweet in 0.5 seconds!

At first, this smells nice. It seems light and refreshing, like that "fresh out of the shower man" smell. Then after a couple seconds it becomes overwhelmingly sweet smelling, especially for a guy!

This was a man's scent?
Sampled

I received this in my December Birchbox. Had no idea that it was a man's scent until I came here to write a review. I suppose I could see a man wearing it, but I think it's perfect for myself. Of course, I prefer the more 'masculine' scents in the first place.

This 'cologne' is the perfect balance between woodsy and citrus. I can't stop smelling my wrist. Bonus? It doesn't give me a headache! I'm very sensitive to chemical smells, so I'd say quality ingredients were obviously used. Top notch!

Superb Scent

Awesome fragrance from John Varvatos! Clean, fresh, woody, and dangerously subtle. My girlfriend loves it and I love it. It has a tendency to make you feel like the worlds most interesting man.

He already had it

I gave this to my boyfriend and he said he had previously owned it and it is one of his favorites. I really enjoyed it too.
