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.

Great idea for box addition, bad product
Sampled

I loved the idea of adding somehting in for men as I always open my Birchbox with my boyfriend and it was nice that there was something for him, but we both hated the smell of this. He said it smelt like "old salad".

Unacceptable.
Sampled

I'm beyond furious with Birchbox this month, and its not the first time I've felt this way. I received a half spilled oil in a scent I'm allergic to, a MENS COLOGNE, a hair product that smells awful and makes my hair feel like its going to break off, a nasty sticky lipgloss, and hand soap. You have GOT to be joking. One more month and I'm done forever.

Why would I recieve a men's cologne??
Sampled

Last time I checked, I'm a woman. I'm not married, single, no boyfriend - why would I pay $10 a month to receive a sample of men's cologne?? I really didn't see the point in this sample, and I'm only giving Birchbox another month before I cancel. I've been less than impressed the past 2 months, and this cologne sample put me over the edge as far as seeing this site as pointless. Really disappointed. Let's see if Ipsy is better...do you send men women's perfume samples??

I didn't like this smell very much, it just wasn't for me.

I gave this one to my boyfriend but didn't find this particularly attractive on my man's skin. However, the scent seemed to fade quite quickly.

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.

Didn't care for the scent...

Neither did my boyfriend. Reminded me of the scene in Anchorman, "It's rather pungent.. STINGS the nostrils." It was just a little too strong for both of us, but I may see if one of my gay husbands likes it :)

Not for me.

The smell was too harsh and masculine for me. I personally would not wear this scent. although I did like the packaging for the box sample

not for me

I'm just not into this scent. A little too manly for me. I may try to pass it off to my husband in his doop kit.
