John Varvatos Artisan 2.5 oz

Gift someone special this subtle, summery eau de toilette from Motor City designer John Varvatos. It’s the cologne 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.

Smells great...for a guy
Sampled

I was pretty disappointed to receive a men's cologne sample in my Women's Birchbox. Granted, the citrus scent COULD be unisex, but John Varvatos is a men's only brand and this cologne is definitely advertised as men's only. I gave this to my boyfriend and he liked it so at least it wasn't a total waste of a sample!

A mens cologne in a womans sample box?

I had to look this up to see if it was for a female or a male. Found out so I have it to my husband to try. I was not to thrilled with it. Didn't hate it, but not going to run out and buy it.

I didn't like it at all because it is a men's perfume.

Overwhelming
Sampled

It was very strong and gross smelling. I would not find it attractive for a man to smell like this.

Stinky, pointless add-on.
Sampled

So. I love that Birchbox is $10 a month, and I am usually very pleased. But I don't like getting spare extras that they have sitting around in a box somewhere. I'm paying for products I can use. I put it on my fiance and it was just awful! Brassy, woodsy, and very overwhelming. Please BB, no more men's perfume. If I wanted it, I'd sign up for it.

Old mannish
Sampled

It didn't occur to me to share this with a male friend, I thought it smelled old-mannish.

For Men?

I highly dislike the smell of this product, and I am not sure if it is intended for men or women...but either way, I won't wear or and I definitely wouldn't let my boyfriend wear it!

John Varvatos Cologne
Sampled

Was not happy at all to see this in my box this month! Only receiving 5 little samples with one of them being a men's cologne was very disappointing... this is a women's box, so why am I receiving a men's cologne sample? This made my November box a waste of $10.00
