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 Awful...
Sampled

The scent of this cologne is pleasant, not too heavy. I will be giving it to my brother.

clean and fresh
Sampled

I know this is supposed to be a men's cologne, but that's just advertising in my opinion, and this is subtle and clean enough to be worn by a woman without anybody knowing. I tried this on myself, because my husband isn't that into cologne. I will give it to him to try out anyways. It is very clean, green, and refreshing. Something I would wear in the summer, or a winter day when I wanted to be reminded of summer. I like it, but I don't love it.

not manly smelling!
Sampled

Loved the smell of the calogne, but it is not very masculine smelling. Seems more like a unisex scent than for men.

smells ok

The smell is not bad, but I can't quite decide if I like it. It's definitely not something I would wear.

Liked the smell in the container; hated it on skin

In theory, this scent was wonderful. But for some reason, once it was on my skin, it smelled like the cheapest, grandparents' cologne. Perhaps this is just my body chemistry, though.

Didn't care for the scent...

Neither did my boyfriend. Reminded me of the scene in Anchorman, "It's rather pungent.. STINGS the nostrils." It was just a little too strong for both of us, but I may see if one of my gay husbands likes it :)

Not for me.

The smell was too harsh and masculine for me. I personally would not wear this scent. although I did like the packaging for the box sample

not for me

I'm just not into this scent. A little too manly for me. I may try to pass it off to my husband in his doop kit.

OK

This scent reminded me of being outdoors and of he warmer weather although I think it was a little too strong and a little to sweet for my personal taste
