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.

Very stong smell

Wasn't a favorite :(
This EDT had a VERY overpowering smell. My husband compared it to Lemon scented Lysol. It wasn't for us.

A light bright fragrance for all you natural beauties

I found John Varvatos Artisan eau de toilette to be a nice addition to my regular go-to perfumes. Light and summery this scent is practical and not to fussy. It has a top note of citrus, a slightly herbal/ floral mid-note, and it finishes with a woody earthy layer. It is unique and airy, and fresh. I do not feel as though the scent was very unisex, it's fairly floral and delicate, very feminine. And much like the description states: it's very much like slipping into your favorite skinnies and a classic white tee. Hope you enjoy!

from light to sweet in 0.5 seconds!

At first, this smells nice. It seems light and refreshing, like that "fresh out of the shower man" smell. Then after a couple seconds it becomes overwhelmingly sweet smelling, especially for a guy!

This was a man's scent?
Sampled

I received this in my December Birchbox. Had no idea that it was a man's scent until I came here to write a review. I suppose I could see a man wearing it, but I think it's perfect for myself. Of course, I prefer the more 'masculine' scents in the first place.

This 'cologne' is the perfect balance between woodsy and citrus. I can't stop smelling my wrist. Bonus? It doesn't give me a headache! I'm very sensitive to chemical smells, so I'd say quality ingredients were obviously used. Top notch!

Superb Scent

Awesome fragrance from John Varvatos! Clean, fresh, woody, and dangerously subtle. My girlfriend loves it and I love it. It has a tendency to make you feel like the worlds most interesting man.

He already had it

I gave this to my boyfriend and he said he had previously owned it and it is one of his favorites. I really enjoyed it too.

Not my favorite

I love the smell of mens cologne, but this one wasn't my favorite. At first smell I kinda liked it, but then it almost started to smell like bug spray after the scent had settled into the skin.

This was a nice scent I ended up giving to a friend. It's appropriate for everyday wear.
