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.

If you like Musky it's for you
Sampled

I thought the smell was very musky and heavy. I prefer lighter perfumes. It almost smells like a mans cologne

Eh

The scent did not linger like a good cologne should. It also kind of smelt like a girls perfume. Not something I would want to give to my boyfriend.

When I received this promotional sample in my box, I followed through with the instructions to give it to a male friend. I think it would be better to have said friend rate the scent but, in my opinion, it was too alcohol-y and musky. It did not have a clean, fresh scent. Further, I was a little bummed to give up space in my box for a guy's product. I already promote the box to my friends (both genders) and would rather get fun girl items for my month's samples.

Not great - although packaging of full size is nice.

This scent is really woodsy. I don't get the "subtle" or "summery" part that is advertised. I think it smells like Ivory soap, if Ivory soap was a cologne. Individual chemistry might vary the effect. but I don't really like it.

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.
