Artisan is awash in Mediterranean accents. Siciilian clementines, Spanish marjoram, and Greek lavandin introduce a temperate heart of North African orange blossom, and ginger extracts. Notes of Indian murraya, and orange jasmine tree take this juicy floral further into the heat of the Mediterranean night.
How it works
Rebottled Artisan, rebottled by Scentbird, Inc., an independent bottler from a genuine product wholly independent of John Varvatos Scentbird, Inc., New York, NY 10001
I have to say I was very impressed by this cologne. It smells so fresh and clean. It?s citrus and crisp. I would definitely recommend it, even if it did not last all day on me. Either way this cologne is for every day casual use and won?t disappoint. By the way giving it a 4/5 only because in my particular case I wish it had lasted longer, and that wasn?t the case but the fragrance is on point.
Very citrus and fresh cologne. Perfect for the office or going out. I do however find its longevity to be kind of short and its aromatics to shallow fairly quick. This is a perfect cologne if you're looking for something light and fresh.
Very fresh without being synthetic or linen-y
-Also more dimensional than the typical "fresh" scent like Dolce and gabana' s One Sport which I've also tried.
Casual, day scent (perfect for just wearing around)
Good spring/summer scent
Smells ok, but I would not wear this regularly. I little to floral for me and I don't smell any citrus or ginger in this. I would say it is more feminine or unisex....maybe. I keep thinking of a type of fabric softener when I smell it. Not horrible though.
As some other reviewers have said, this is indeed an almost androgynous scent. It does register just this side of masculine, though, and it actually layers well with woodier more masculine scents if you wanna go a little crazy. It's a nice choice for summer.
This one is just far too flowery for me. Smell is not very complex. A big contrast with Artisan Acqua, which is actually really a really great, attractive, masculine scent. Hard to believe these are even in the same family of colognes.l by John Varvatos.
