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.

I know it's supposed to be for boys but...
Sampled

I kept this. Sometimes I like more manly fragrances. This one in my opinion should be unisex. It smells really fresh and clean. I recommended to a friend to buy for her boyfriend who has another John Varvatos scent.

Smells great...for a guy
Sampled

I was pretty disappointed to receive a men's cologne sample in my Women's Birchbox. Granted, the citrus scent COULD be unisex, but John Varvatos is a men's only brand and this cologne is definitely advertised as men's only. I gave this to my boyfriend and he liked it so at least it wasn't a total waste of a sample!

husband liked!

I gifted this sample to my husband, who is REALLY picky about the scents he wears, and he really liked it. I thought it was nice and would even consider wearing it myself!

Very nice
Sampled

I put this cologne on before I knew it was a men's cologne, and I really liked it. It has a nice masculine smell, but it is not too strong. Very nice smelling cologne, and I would enjoy being around someone who is wearing it.

Fresh

November was my first birch box so I was excited to look at every product. I was surprised there was a men's cologne in there but I gave it to my fiance to try. It isn't too strong or too light which is nice. It smells 'clean & fresh' in my opinion sort of like a shower gel so not something that he would personally wear but nice to try.

Nice smell

This was a nice surprise in my box. I gave it to my fiance and he really likes it. I think it's a great light scent that's not too over-bearing

A world of better-smelling men.

I'm not currently dating anyone, but if I was... he'd be wearing this stuff. It's intoxicating. I'm a big fan. Hooray, Birchbox, for making the men in our lives smell better!

Made my guy less irritated about me paying for samples
Sampled

My boyfriend watched me open this (my first!) Birchbox as was a bit wary about what I would get. I immediately handed him the fragrance and suggested he wear it. It smelled great and lasted a long time. He has been looking for a new scent and I've had to put up with Axe in the meantime. Definite upgrade!
