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.

Didn't care for the scent...

Neither did my boyfriend. Reminded me of the scene in Anchorman, "It's rather pungent.. STINGS the nostrils." It was just a little too strong for both of us, but I may see if one of my gay husbands likes it :)

Not for me.

The smell was too harsh and masculine for me. I personally would not wear this scent. although I did like the packaging for the box sample

Mehh

I gave this to my boyfriend and it smells, well, just ok. He has worn it maybe once. There is just something a little too musty about it.

Love it!
Purchased

I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift after sampling it. We both love it, and the packaging is really unique. Looks great sitting out on the vanity!

Light and crisp

Love this scent. Simple and crisp without being overwhelming. Perfect for those on the go, that don't want to spend all day reeking of cologne and instead like a subtle scent that lasts all day. Never overpowering, and I really enjoy it. Definitely on my "to buy" list.

not for me

I'm just not into this scent. A little too manly for me. I may try to pass it off to my husband in his doop kit.

Men or women's?

I received this in a women's Birchbox, but I'm pretty sure I've seen this in the Men's fragrance section at Nordstrom. I'm all about trying new fragrances and some men's fragrances are nice on my skin... but I think I would have to give this one to my boyfriend. This should be in the Men's birch box :) Very cool packaging, though! I wish it was a parfum.

Citrus and Summer

I'm very happy I got this in my box or else I would have never tried it. You can really smell the citrus undertones in this cologne which makes it great for the summer time.

Obsessed

Obsessed with this scent, definitely purchased after finishing my sample. It's not too girly and perfect for those who want a more ambiguous scent.

Like it very much!

I thought the fragrance was not overwhelming, and I really liked the fact that I could wear it to the office without overpowering people. Overall, I liked it, but I wasn't in love with it enough to buy it.
