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.

Stinky, pointless add-on.

So. I love that Birchbox is $10 a month, and I am usually very pleased. But I don't like getting spare extras that they have sitting around in a box somewhere. I'm paying for products I can use. I put it on my fiance and it was just awful! Brassy, woodsy, and very overwhelming. Please BB, no more men's perfume. If I wanted it, I'd sign up for it.

Old mannish

It didn't occur to me to share this with a male friend, I thought it smelled old-mannish.

For Men?

I highly dislike the smell of this product, and I am not sure if it is intended for men or women...but either way, I won't wear or and I definitely wouldn't let my boyfriend wear it!

John Varvatos Cologne

Was not happy at all to see this in my box this month! Only receiving 5 little samples with one of them being a men's cologne was very disappointing... this is a women's box, so why am I receiving a men's cologne sample? This made my November box a waste of $10.00

Great idea for box addition, bad product
Sampled

I loved the idea of adding somehting in for men as I always open my Birchbox with my boyfriend and it was nice that there was something for him, but we both hated the smell of this. He said it smelt like "old salad".

Unacceptable.
Sampled

I'm beyond furious with Birchbox this month, and its not the first time I've felt this way. I received a half spilled oil in a scent I'm allergic to, a MENS COLOGNE, a hair product that smells awful and makes my hair feel like its going to break off, a nasty sticky lipgloss, and hand soap. You have GOT to be joking. One more month and I'm done forever.

Why would I recieve a men's cologne??
Sampled

Last time I checked, I'm a woman. I'm not married, single, no boyfriend - why would I pay $10 a month to receive a sample of men's cologne?? I really didn't see the point in this sample, and I'm only giving Birchbox another month before I cancel. I've been less than impressed the past 2 months, and this cologne sample put me over the edge as far as seeing this site as pointless. Really disappointed. Let's see if Ipsy is better...do you send men women's perfume samples??
