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.

Not Exciting

It's a clean scent, subtle, sort of a luke-warm citrus to me. It's not bad but I don't feel like asking my boyfriend to wear this either. I prefer spicy musk scents, just not my taste.

Boyfriend Wasn't a Fan

I liked the men's sample in this box, and I was hoping that my boyfriend might have interest in this scent. However, he didn't enjoy the smell. I, on the other hand, think it's a classic cologne scent and plan on giving it to one of my guy friends.

Like but don't love.

Enjoyed the "give this to a guy" aspect of this addition to the box. Wasn't blown away by the product but didn't hate it!

Hubby didn't like it

I loved how this smelled! However, when I gave it to my husband to put it on, he didn't like it! At all! But since I like it I will give it 3 stars! Thinking about passing it on to my Father In Law! Might be more his style!

I don't get It!

The weakest fragrances I've used . After promising subtle first notes this cologne dissipates completely in ten to fifteen minutes. This product line is not on my purchase list for myself or gifting!

smell doesn't last
Sampled

I liked the smell of this cologne, and my girlfriend does too. The only problem is that even if I put enough of it on to make my eyes water, the smell is gone twenty minutes later.

Too sweet

I received this scent in my birchbox and am not a big fan. I regularly use and have full size bottle the John Varvatos Star USA cologne and really like it, but it is a bit more woodsy than this scent is.

Might be good, if I could smell it

Got the sample and it seemed nice enough in the bottle, but no matter how much I put on, I could hardly smell it. The 3rd time I wore it I accidentally spilled about 1/3 of the sample bottle on my wrist and hand and even then it was only about as strong as most of my other colognes are after a spray or two. It's a nice citrus scent, but it's a bit boring and disappears so quickly, it almost makes me wonder if my sample wasn't somehow defective or really old or something. No way I would order it based on that experience.

works for a certain pH

This is a very sweet yet subtle cologne. By far one of the designers better smelling colognes. Keep in mind...for this kind of an investment, that the notes comprising this cologne work best with your own bodies pH.
