John Varvatos Artisan 4.2 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.

Straightforward cologne.

This is a nice, competent, fresh citrus fragrance. It doesn't last very long, but that's something it shares with most all classic colognes. Nothing harsh or unpleasant about the scent, but nothing really striking either. It does nothing wrong, but nothing really well. Very safe bet. Three stars.

Not bad

Very light scent. Not overly manly. It reminds me of the unisex scents that some other companies have come out with. I didn't hate it but I will also not buy it for myself.

Pretty good fragrance

I really like the fragrance, even though its not the best I've tried. I would recommended for everyday, particularly if you work in a very casual environment.

androgynous scent

when I first smelled this, I was on the fence about it actually being a men's scent. As a female, I enjoy how men's cologne smells on me; it has a distinct scent that women's perfume doesn't quite reach sometimes. This one, however, seems like it could pass as feminine or masculine, depending on how it reacts to your body's chemistry. the bottle looks interesting and I do enjoy the smell.

OK

I don't know if I like this or if I'm neutral! I'm not even sure how to describe the scent!

My husband is definitely on the fence on this one - just not in love with the scent.

Just so so

I gifted this sample to my son, who thought it was clean with a citrus smell. It didn't smell strongly of anything to me. Although he found it reasonably pleasant enough, it wasn't one that would make his rotation.

Nice scent

This was nice. My husband liked it. I was just okay with it. It didn't wow me. Perhaps that is the point...easy-going was a descriptor.

Not bad!

This cologne has a great scent that isn't too heavy....is it terrible that I use it instead of my husband?? (Not that he didn't like it - he just isn't a fragrance person)

Nice!

Okay - I'm guilty of wearing men's cologne. I'm a fan of musky, deeper scents. I think this cologne is both musky and refreshing with the citrus notes.

I think this cologne is best when worn in the spring - it seems a little light for the fall and winter. I'd recommend this scent to my guy friends.
