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.

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.

Scent disappears

I received this in my box and even though it's a male fragrance, I tried it for myself (I often wear men's colognes). I loved the smell, but unfortunately, it just wasn't noticeable enough - even with a good amount of the small sample bottle on me! Honestly, the scent was so faint. Too faint, really.

Love it on my husband

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.

Good, but not great

This scent is "subtle," but almost too subtle... it kind of feels like you're spraying on oil for a second and then the scent fades quickly.

Gone too fast
Purchased

This is a great cologne but it goes fast. If I had to guess I think the fancy thatch covering is a way for them to hide that they only fill up the bottle half way or something cause I don't spray a lot when I use it and it was gone in no time. A bottle of the same brand but different fragrance that is the same total oz. is still half full and I used it just as often. What's the deal Mr. Varvatos?

For My Man?

This smelled like boy, and maybe that was the point? I gave it to my husband to use. I don't think he has, but I know I wasn't

Gift for my husband
Purchased

I got a sample of this way back when & had my husband try it out. We both liked it so much so I got it. It is fresh & perfect for summer. So far so good! I want to try the other John V colognes on him :)

Clean, relaxed and sexy

I'm very picky about men's fragrances. I don't like spice so it has to be clean, sexy and it has to make me remember it. This has it all! He wears it every day and I still love to lay my head on his chest and breathe it in.
