I love the smell of this cologne as does my girlfriend. It has a clean subtle smell that isn't over powering. The only advise and recommendations I would make is the latch to open the top is nice to look at but becomes a cumbersome extra step after the novelty wears off.
I bought this for my husband and this is by far the best smelling cologne he's ever worn! It doesn't take much to smell great and it lasts all day, too. The best part is that it's not nearly as common as other colognes, so he doesn't smell like everyone else.
This stuff is a winner. It is a solid daily fragrance for the workplace or casual environs. The subtle scent suggests that you have taken care in selection of an appropriate fragrance that is pleasing but not overpowering. I get asked all the time what it is I'm wearing when standing in lines (no I don't wear too much) and folks really seem to like it as much as me. Just the right blend of citrus and manliness.
Nice, but I prefer the original
I already use the original John Varvatos cologne so I was excited to try this, and it is really nice, my wife agrees. I think I prefer the original though, maybe just because it's my usual smell. Creature of habit I guess.
My wife loves John Varvatos Star U.S.A., Therefore I love it! It is a refreshing scent that lasts all day and is not overpowering like a lot of other colognes.
