The larger bottle of this handsome cologne makes the perfect wow gift for a lucky gentleman.

John Varvatos

Birchbox Breakdown

Dads and younger brothers alike dig this dapper scent. Housed in smoky glass with a spring top reminiscent of a vintage beer bottle, John Varvatos’ cologne, like his designs, exudes a combination of off-kilter downtown cool and elegant prep. Also available in a 3.4 oz version.

How it Works

The manly scent combines red ginger essence from Laos, juniper berries and cedrat from Sicily, blue spruce, green cardamom, osmanthus, vetyvert, belambre, and tonka bean from Venezuela.

How to Use

Men can’t go wrong with a spritz behind each ear at the end of their grooming routine.

Amazing
Purchased

This cologne for men is one of the best smelling colognes. It is not to strong, but lasts and has a wonderful scent and an awesome manly bottle it comes in. It is worth the price for a great cologne.

Smells great!
Sampled

I recent,y found this in my stash of sample perfumes and gave it to my boyfriend. He really likes it and every time he came over I found myself saying "you smell SO good"! It's a very sexy scent, and the price is reasonable! Definitely buying as a gift!

A Little Too Industrial
Sampled

This is a little too industrial looking and heavy scent for me, but I can see why the edgy tin look would be appealing. Just didn't do it for me.

This is my go-to scent on a night out! Smell is great and not overpowering. The bottle can be a bit tricky at times :/

Nice

It was a nice scent. I don't know that I liked it enough to make a full size purchase. It could be mostly because it would take a real standout to counter the drawer full of cologne bottles the husband is currently hoarding.

Refreshing scent

My husband loves how it smells and used up the free sample quickly. He will be getting more for Valentine's Day :-)

smells amazing

The june box was the first birchbox i had ever recieved and i was a bit disappointed when i opened it and saw a mens fragrance...until I smelled it, that is. It is a delicate fragrance with amazing staying power. I immediately asked my boyfriend to try it and he loved it as much as I do. I will be purchasing the full size as a gift for him.

Lovely scent!

This was a great addition to my birchbox. My boyfriend loved the scent, and the scent did not wear off fast which is always a bonus! In my opinion this is a pretty universal scent for all ages

Not a bad fragrance....

I didn't love it, but it wasn't horrible either. It's a very clean scent, and to me it's not as strong as some other men's cologne.

Good scent, but a little strong.

I liked this scent, but it was a little powerful (which can also be a god thing!) Only a spray or two is necessary, so the sample will last a long time.
