Whether you want to impress your boss or attract a potential partner, a great fragrance like this one is the way to go. It will make you a memorable man to all those to happen to come across you.


This limited-edition fragrance for men is of high quality, and quite contemporary. Commercial, but with that fleeting sense of utmost specialness.

As the official announcement of John Varvatos Artisan Man Eau De Toilette goes, the top notes are chayote (edible fruit from the family of cucumbers and melons), bitter orange, basil, lavender, and bergamot.

The heart features clary sage, orange blossom absolute, iris, palmarosa, and geranium, while the base combines tamarisk wood, resin from pistachio, pine, patchouli, and cedar. It was characterized as aromatic-citrusy.

Summary of Amazon Customer Reviews


One user says it sounds nice and maybe he would buy it. The blue color made him think of a water-related nightmare but the ingredients sound pretty good for summer. He would not seek it out but he would wear it as a breezy and generally easy scent.

Another user says the blue put him off initially, but the thought of the lavender note reassured him. The fancy bottle and the blue color made him think of old houses in the northeast that have their windows lining up colored bottles and that brought history and antiques to his mind. Yet another user says he would recommend this product. It is, according to him,

How to Use it Properly?

John Varvatos Artisan Man Eau De Toilette is designed to last about three hours. However, you should never reapply the moment you stop noticing the smell, as that may happen with smells that have been around us for a few hours but are still noticeable to others who come to us. That said, it is perfectly all right to reapply once during the day and once during the evening.

This is a high-quality perfume so you can use it whenever you want – as much or as little as you want – and keep it for up to five years. Please put it in a suitable place, for example, avoid storing it under direct sunlight. You can lengthen the life of your perfume by storing it properly and with care, so store it not on your dressing table, but in a dark, dry place.

Final Verdict

John Varvatos Artisan Man Eau De Toilette is the perfect fragrance for you to buy if you want a summer smell that will fly your heart and mind to the breezy Mediterranean at a moment’s notice, not to mention getting you noticed by all the beautiful ladies.

Again, if you are a woman reading this, wondering what fragrance to buy for the man in your life, go for the versatile Artisan Blu with your eyes closed. He is going to love it for the way it makes him feel fresh and manly.
