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.

Wasn't for me
Sampled

This wasn't a fragrance I was too fond of. I shared it with my husband, but he doesn't really wear cologne very often. The fragrance wasn't gross or too strong, just not a combination of scents that appealed to me.

My husband loves this!

We bought a bottle of this exact cologne for my husband a year or two ago at Sephora and I am addicted to it. He wears it for date nights, and it drives me wild. It's the perfect "man" scent. Dark, woody, and not overwhelming. If anyone is looking for a good cologne to give to that special man in your life, Artisan is it!

I'm a Fan

I love it - for me! (not my fiance). It was feminine but not overly flowery or fruity. It is a very fragrant everyday smell. I am a big fan!

Hmmmm

Smells nice but no idea why a men's cologne was included in the women's box. I would have liked something for me. Don't plan on buying this cause my hubby never where's scents anyway.

Woodsy and citrusy.

I splashed this on my boyfriend and really enjoyed that when you're smelling it, you don't automatically think "cologne!" Not your stereotypical strong cologne smell - it's a more natural warm smell with hints of fresh smelling citrus.

Nice fragrance

My fiance enjoyed this very much. It's a great scent for guys who are more casual. I'll end up buying a full size for him for Christmas.

Masculine but Overpowering

My man doesn't often wear cologne, which is quite the shame because I think mens' scents are often much more enjoyable than their girly counterparts. This scent, however, wasn't my favorite on him (or on me). I was happy to see it in my box, but it just didn't work for us. I think it was too heavy of a scent.

Too heavy for a picky fragrance person.

I am very picky about my fragrances and this one is ok. I *like* the smell but it is too heavy for my taste. I recieved a sample in my BirchBox but wouldn't buy the full bottle.

He smells great

I gave this to my fiance to try, and it smells great! He likes wearing a scent that's not too powerful and this suits him perfectly
