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.

Fantastic Unisex Fragrance
Sampled

I tried it and loved it as a scent for myself-- it isn't overpowering or cloying, just light and woodsy.

Just average

There was nothing too special about this. Smells good, but not GREAT.

For the professor or bookish type in your life.
Sampled

I bought a similar JV scent for a guy I dated once, and I highly recommend the cologne (though not the guy). Perfect for those professor/bookish types in your life.

John Varvatous cologne
Sampled

My husband actually already owned this before the sample. John Varvatous is a great brand and their colognes smell great. A must buy for any male in your life.

Pleasant
Sampled

Gave this to my boyfriend. I was unfamiliar with the brand, but our guitarist was familiar with it and was suitably impressed. I rather liked the scent. It was light and pleasant while still being masculine.

Just OK

I wasn't blown away by this. I didn't dislike it, but it certainly didn't blow me away. My husband won't wear it, so I will be sticking it in my dad's stocking this year. Hopefully he and my mom like it more than we did.

nice smell

My husband likes the smell and so do I. But I don't know if I would run out to buy a big bottle.

WHY????
Sampled

Very disappointed in this sample. I can get this free at the department store counter - what am I paying for it for?! and why is it for men?! I get sharing for Thanksgiving but come on Birchbox, let me decide.

Fresh, tangy and Clean!
Sampled

I really enjoyed this product. Although it's designed for men, I don't see why women can wear this fragrance as well. It's fresh, tangy and clean! Perfect fall scent!
