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.

it was a nice scent, but not much else to say about it besides its nice. it didn't really impress me, but then again it wasn't overly strong or offensive.

didn't like the smell at all. My husband wasn't in to it either.

I gave the sample to my husband to use. We were both indifferent to the smell.

Don't like it!

Really, really didn't like the way this smelled. Didn't want to share it with my husband, for fear of its turning me off of him!

I gave it to my fiancee when I got it from my monthly birchbox. It's not a good sign that he used it and then immediately made an excuse to take a shower; then gave the small sample to his brother....

Didn't last...

The scent was nice - totally unisex and fresh. But like some of the other reviewers said, the scent seemed to just evaporate after an hour or so. I would have liked if it had lingered a little longer.

Not my kind of smell

I thought it smelled ok, until I really took a whiff. I'm not a fan.

If you like Musky it's for you

I thought the smell was very musky and heavy. I prefer lighter perfumes. It almost smells like a mans cologne

Eh

The scent did not linger like a good cologne should. It also kind of smelt like a girls perfume. Not something I would want to give to my boyfriend.

not for me

When I received this promotional sample in my box, I followed through with the instructions to give it to a male friend. I think it would be better to have said friend rate the scent but, in my opinion, it was too alcohol-y and musky. It did not have a clean, fresh scent. Further, I was a little bummed to give up space in my box for a guy's product. I already promote the box to my friends (both genders) and would rather get fun girl items for my month's samples.
