Description
Dark Rebel’s unbridled masculinity roars out from the first note to the last. Tobacco, black leather, Jamaican rum, black pepper, and resinous woods fuse into a pitch-black shadow of smoky, sinuous male energy. This powerful fragrance can take a punch, but won’t take any prisoners.

John Varvatos Dark Rebel description

John Varvatos himself has said that Dark Rebel is “his most personal scent to date,” and this perfume is not only personal but in your face about it.

Dark Rebel is a boozy, hyper-masculine scent from beginning to end. It’s a Brando movie, a blazing guitar solo, and a pirate ship all blended into one clenched fist fragrance.

Dark Rebel is the perfume your parents never wa

Very heavy, masculine.
Very heavy, masculine smell. Smells fabulous on the hubby - but will say its more of a winter/date night smell.. not something I can picture him at least wearing everyday. Happy we know of it, but probably wouldn't buy a whole bottle of it. A little goes A LONG way.

Love the scent
I really enjoy the scent. It’s a really mild cologne not too over powering. For me the tobacco come in really nicely. The one down side is it doesn’t last long, it would be five stars if it lasted longer.

This is a Keeper for me.
Really enjoyed this scent from the house of Varvatos...at least for the first hour or so, then, just ok. Definitely masculine...the only thing I don't get is that for everyone else they say the leather comes in the dry down...uhhh, nope, I got it straight away in the opening lol. Now everything else I pretty much agree with. This is a definite man fragrance. Opening is amazing and then the dry down...like many have said before...is average spice at best. Not bad, mind you, just nothing spectacular. Performance for me seems to be better than most say, but I agree with others that it lasts longer when sprayed on the clothes as well as the skin. Make it do double duty, skin and clothes, and the performance is more than adequate.

Very manly, sort of old school
Most definitely a winter scent, and quite manly. I say old school because growing up it seemed as if all mens cologne had that type of profile. Wasn't really a fit for me, verified by my wife's reaction to it. Certainly not terrible, but was worth a try.

A bump in the road
Overall scent doesn’t blend well with itself. Has a woodsy smell that over powers anything else in it that you should be able to smell and boy is it strong. So strong that it’s off putting. So off putting that I’m afraid to use it for anything.

Brooding
Mature manly scent with a bold punch off the very first spray. Unique for cooler weather. Leathery rum that dries down to something entirely different with unique spice performance. Ideal for outdoors and for those wild nights out. Lacking longevity as it doesn't stay on as long as I'd like.

Fades quickly
I enjoyed the scent, just fades quickly. I paired it up with john varvatos vintage and that made the perfect scent for me. Vintage by itself was sweet smelling and it last a bit longer. When you pair dark rebel with vintage it brings down the sweetness and makes it more masculine. I recommend pairing the two!

Boozy and Mysterious
I ADORE this fragrance. On the initial open, I get a strong smokey incense kind of scent. That fades nicely into a tobacco and rum blend that is intoxicating and distinctly masculine. The leather doesn't really come through until it's been on for a while. The fragrance is strong at first, and has pretty decent projection. After about an hour or so, it starts hanging closer to the skin. There's still pretty good projection, but it requires someone to get a bit closer to really smell it. Personally, I love that kind of scent. It's definitely a confident, "masculine" fragrance. A bit more butch than I would normally wear, but the rum makes it just sweet enough to still work with my chemistry. It also tends to drive the men crazy. ;-)

Great Scent
This cologne is a great scent however I don't think the smell comparisons best describe it. There is definitely a cinnamon scent to it, which wouldn't be too bad when going out to the club or something. I wouldn't personally wear this as an everyday cologne.

Very deep and warm. I can definitely pick out tobacco. I like wearing it any time, but would probably be most appropriate for a night out. It very much mellows out, so don't be put off by the intensity at first.

I really like this fragrance a lot. At first it smells like rum and cigars out in the woods. My wife prefers the dry down on it, which is sweet with a wood and leather smell. All-in-all, it is great for everyday wear in the cooler months of fall and winter, but i suppose could be worn all year.

Smells too feminine
I thought it'd be better I mean with the name such as it is. I figured it would be masculine and strong as the day went on. But by mid afternoon it had started to wear off, I was glad though bc it smells too much like what a woman would wear. I don't recommend this one.

LOVE this cologne. One of the better mixes of masculinity and sexy softness I have ever found. It's not overpowering, but wears well, although the deep notes wear off, leaving a softer sweetness. Perfect for date nights, your lady with love it.

I smelled it and thought it was nice. As soon as I actually applied it, I immediately regretted the decision. I know it’s a men’s cologne, but it smells like an old lady perfume to me. If I thought I could get a refund, I would ask for one.

I have tried dark rebel in stores and I was unsure about it. But after using it the past week I am really liking it. It's a good attention getter. It's a nice strong leather smell mixed with the out doors. Its a great cologne to try and see how you like it. You won't be disappointed.

Not a very good scent
This scent lingers for a long time, which can be good with some fragrances. I would have to say that doesn't apply to this scent. It was too strong at times and very spicy. Too spicy. The different notes start to smell weird. Most people didn't​ enjoy the scent when they were to comment on it.

Its like wearing a new leather jacket while drinking rum on the rocks..
John Varvatos 'Dark Rebel' is: smoky and masculine. The initial burst is smoky and woodsy (with a splash of spiced rum! Yo ho ho! ). The tobacco gives it a sultry vibe. Longevity is around 4 hrs before it becomes a skin smell. My girlfriend remarked: "its unlike any cologne that shes smelled." She LOVES this scent on me and always gives me compliments when I wear it! Honestly this fragrance makes me feel sexy

This is not a cologne that you want to cuddle up with your man once he sprays it on... It's very earthy smelling and definitely stays with you all day long. It is a very different type of smell ! The cologne is almost confused at what it is supposed to be in my opinion... It has a very sleek,sexy rugged feel to it but once sprayed it has a fruity smell! It's very confused!

I love this! Definitely a cool to cold weather fragrance, it's an extremely manly scent in every sense. In my experience my wife seems to not mind it but she's definitely not falling all over me for to smell it or cuddle me when I have it on. I would recommend this for a lowkey guys night but if you have single friends or you are single and your going out to try and get lucky this isn't the one. This is extremely masculine like chopping tree's, driving fast classic cars or Harleys, and wearing leather bomber jackets. This cologne will be appreciated by mens men.

This scent is dark and sweet and lasts all day. It's a very sweet but masculine scent. I put it on before I leave the house at 6 am for work and my fiancé still complements my cologne when I get back from the gym that night around 8 or 9. I don't need to reapply. And while the scent is lasting, it's not so strong that the whole office can smell it, even when I first apply, there's no cloud of overpowering cologne that follows me.

Great cologne. Smelled it first on a magazine scratch-n-sniff ad in Men's Health and knew I loved it. I wear cologne for me and how a scent makes me feel, so I haven't asked anyone's opinion on it yet, but I love it so I'll order it again or buy a bigger bottle. I'd have no problem wearing it daily.

I love Varvatos' scents, but this one didn't do much for me. It's masculine, but has a bit of an "axe" quality to it... which... is not a positive. Longevity is the weakest aspect of this one- seems to be gone within an hour or two. It's a decent scent- just nothing special.

Like a dry smoky incense or candle that smells like leather with a slight rum/tobacco scent behind it that makes it pretty polarizing. Predominantly leather and incense notes. Personally, not a favorite.

Not really dark; more like purple. Not much rebel; more like pimp. If you always wanted to smell like the maitre d' at a Fat Albert-themed steakhouse, you've found your dream scent. Spicy, but in a velour jumpsuit kind of way.

This is my favorite cologne that I've ever worn by far. I've had random women standing next to me at a concert tell me I smelled yummy. I've heard the word 'sexy' describe it, when I've worn it. I bought a large bottle of it before I was finished with my scentbird sample. I did not want to run out! If you want to be a little mysterious, sexy, and smell yummy, then get this.

Great scent overall, doesn't last the whole day for me personally, but that could be due to the fact i am not 100% on my scent profile as yet. I love the combination and adaptivness of the scent as it goes on strong but relaxes into it's light woodsy yet aromatic subtle profiles over the course of the day. Great scent, however for me it doesnt last quite as well as i had hoped. But I am new to the realms of finding your profile and scent . Could just be my aromatics have not found the right fit thus far? But my wife loves it!

This is one of the most unique colognes I have ever used. I imagine that most people will either love it or hate it -- there will be no in-between. Has a very woodsy and smoky aroma -- rich spices mixed with the smell of a fine cigar. One of my favorites.

For me, it's way too overpowering. It's a 'masculine' scent in terms of being woodsy, spicy, rum-like... but I don't enjoy having it on nor would I want to sit next to another guy wearing it - which to me, says a lot. I guess it's true to it's name, 'Dark Rebel', in that it smells like a cowboy/biker on the run who had a rough night, woke up in a cell and just hopped back on his bike and landed at a saloon. I'll be giving this one away to someone I don't spend much time with... #SorryNotSorry... but I still like the Scent Bird service very much! I just chose the wrong style cologne this time.

I have mixed feelings about this one: Though I do find it rich and multi-layered, the acerbic, creosote-esque elements seem a bit strong for me, Also, when you only catch a whiff, most of the sweeter and more complex notes fall away and it just smells almost exactly like you're wearing Off bug repellant. Not bad, but I don't plan on running out to buy a large bottle either.

This is one spectacular cologne, let me tell you. I feel like tobacco and leather are starting to get way overdone in men's colognes these days but this is a very unique blend. The tobacco is dry and only a little sweet while the leather is true to its name and not at all plasticy. The bamboo gives it a nice freshness that lingers all the way to the dry down, which is dry and spicy. I cannot get enough of this stuff! It is pretty strong, so don't be heavy handed when applying.
