This is a solid choice for fall!

If you're looking for a cologne for fall and winter weather, this is a great choice! It's a clean fragrance with a lot of hints of spices that remind you of this time of year.

Nice manly scent
Purchased

Not only is the packaging lovely but this unique refreshing scent is really nice. My son who doesn't like cologne wears it so I bought it for my husband. All the men in our family now wear it. I'm thinking of borrowing it!

Perfect scent for everyday use

I absolutely love this cologne. I use it most of the time out of the 9+ colognes I own. I use it day or night because I like it that much.

Great scent! Wears quickly.

Got a sample in my Birchbox and liked it a lot. Got a full bottle as a gift and wear it almost everyday. The scent is light still has a woodsy quality to it.

My only gripe is that the fragrance wears quickly and there isn't really a trace of it by late afternoon.

Everyday Cologne

A fragrance with a spicy oak aroma, it has become one of my favorites. It provides a long lasting scent that can be used for almost any occasion. It is not an over the top cologne but does get the job done on a night out.

Not Overbearing

This is a good everyday type of cologne. It is not overbearing in smell and you will probably not win over anybody with it, but it very light and refreshing. I have bought John Varvatos colognes before and some have been a little too harsh in smell.

I don't get It!

The weakest fragrances I've used . After promising subtle first notes this cologne dissipates completely in ten to fifteen minutes. This product line is not on my purchase list for myself or gifting!

One of my favorites

This is one of my favorite colognes in my collection...a nice refreshing smell that isn't overpowering...especially great during spring/summer months but works well any time. A manly smell is a must and this cologne gets the job done.

LOVE this scent

Fresh and subtle. Maybe too subtle. I bought a bottle and it takes a LOT to feel it was worth the effort. But based on the scent alone this is A+++
