Ok but not signature scent worthy

I was a bit disappointed. I got comments but not compliments when both times I wore the scent. I found it ok but not enough to wear regularly as a signature scent. Of course fragrance is different on everyone so I would certainly suggest trying it for yourself, that is the only true indicator for fragrance.

Great design for a great fragrance
Purchased

I bought this cologne for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it. It is such a nice clean smell that it's hard to wear too much of it. The packaging is really cool, too. He's already talking about converting it into a flask once he uses it all!

This was a wonderful surprise in my December box! My husband has been using the sample almost everyday! I love the scent and he liked getting something from Birchbox!!!!

Classic

John Varvatos created this classy scent that can worn by men or women. Like in the description it gives off the scent of being easy going. I also love the style of the bottle!

Subtle, but good

I liked it, but it definitely isn't something I can smell after a few hours without being REALLY close :)

Nice!

I gave this to my fiance to try on, and he is SUPER picky about his colognes. Though he's not a big fan, I like it on him! Maybe he just needs to get used to it :)

better than most samples

I'm not a perfume person, but I thought this was tolerable. I wore it for a few hours and thought the scent was nice.

smells like a dream!

I loved this sample I got, it is a perfect gentlemans scent. I gave the sample to my boyfriend in his stocking this year for christmas. He really enjoyed it as well. It is suble but smells great!

Surprisingly pleasant

I am very picky with scents. I received a sample of this in my November box I believe. I gave it to my boyfriend to see if he wanted it. He is not a scent guy either. He put it on and at first I wasn't so sure but the more it wears and the more I am around it, the better I like it. It's not overtly masculine, but not androgynous either. Strong citrus notes. Rather earthy undertones.
