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.

Love this scent
Sampled

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.

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
Sampled

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.

Nice cologne

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.
