Artisan Black tempts the senses with rich, dark and juicy Mediterranean citrus, with its opening of Meyer lemon, Italian red grapes, and tangerines. The heart combines the plush cream of jasmine sambac with the fiery spice of cardamom and coriander, cut with neroli and orange blossom?s soothing bright charm.

It?s a very light cologne but lasts for a long time. I?ve got many compliments from people I deliver to, I work for ups, and for some reason it?s always a topic of conversation. I would highly recommend trying out this scent.
This sent was amazing, it has a nice spice to it and is perfect for those with a more refined sense of style. It does -not- smell too musky which I was worried about when I initially selected it. Colognes with a lot of musk smell way too dated in my opinion. Overall it's a nice fall/winter sent that gives a refined/classy vibe and I'd recommend it for anyone looking for that sort of look.
This particular scent is one I can wear just about every day before I leave... Mixes well with hard work, unfortunately the scent does not stay with you the whole day so be prepared to bring it with to freshen up for that meeting after work... For that reason I'm giving it 4 stars
Not a real favorite. When I first sprayed it on it snelles like a mixture if leather and a citrus which I personally didn't like. When it layed on the skin I got slight hints of the leather. The longevity was about 3 to 4 hours so you would have to keep reapplying. Not a top 10 favorite.
Wasn't sure what I thought about it when I first got it, but as I put it on for the next few days the scent really grew on me. Its a subtle lingering scent that is fresh, and I enjoy very much. My two go two colognes have been Armani Code and Versace Eros, this will go in my collection as another favorite.
I really like the scent of this cologne. It is very clean and very distinct. Whenever I get a new cologne it takes me a while to learn how many sprays are needed. This starts strong but the top notes just fall. You spray this and it smells awesome, but very soon the scent fades away leaving a mellow undertone. Don't get me wrong I love them both, I just want that initial strong scent to last...and it doesn't. Great scent though!
This is a pleasant enough scent. It's not really dynamic to me though. I'm sure many people will enjoy the subtlety, but it's not my favorite. But I would recommend it a very wearable and familiar in a lot of ways.
