Had never tried anything from John Varvatos before receiving this sample. Really liked it - casual and not ultra-feminine but really appealing. Especially nice for summer.
Mmmm...my man smells so yummy! !!
I had never heard of this cologne before Birchbox. If I remember correctly I received a sample and my hubby said he liked it (I was shocked since he's so picky), so I ordered a bottle. He hasn't worn anything else since this order. I am so glad Birchbox carries it because it isn't easy to find in our area. Thanks Birchbox, for bringing us new and hard to find gems.
Nice manly smell
This is a great scent - clean and spicy. It smells heavenly on my husband, and he is asking for more. And the full-sized bottle is really unique looking.
Great everyday fragrance.
Loved the JV Artisian. This is a subtle scent but unique and suited for everyday use particularly suited for spring and summer. I have received many compliments on this understated fragrance.
Bought for my son and he is always getting compliments from women. Will buy some for my husband's birthday
really great smelling. Packaging is also fantastic
Excellent gift idea
This is one of the best smells and can be a great gift. Unique in what it looks like. Try it out and see what you think.
While I really like the smell, it's worth mentioning that this product doesn't smell natural; it is very manufactured smelling. I tend to prefer "real" scents. Otherwise, I enjoy that the smell doesn't fade too much. Throughout the day I occasionally catch a whiff of myself, and can tell that it hasn't rubbed off like other colognes.
Makes a great gift
The package, the smell and everything about this product is very laid-back and trendy. My husband says he is a big fan of the "coolness" of this product. You can't go wrong buying this as a gift!
I liked it but my husband didn't
At least, my husband never bothered to try to wear it because he felt the sample size was too small. He's spoiled. I really liked the smell of this and need to find a way to dump it on him fresh out of the shower. The bottle looks really cool too.
Liked the smell in the container; hated it on skin
In theory, this scent was wonderful. But for some reason, once it was on my skin, it smelled like the cheapest, grandparents' cologne. Perhaps this is just my body chemistry, though.
