I was very disappointed with this fragrance as I usually like other fragrances by John Varvatos. This cologne had way to much woody musky tones to be enjoyable and sadly it actually lasts quite a bit. It reminded me of the old Gucci Rush with its woody musky tones and I wasn't a huge fan of that either.
This was my first order and i couldn't wait i smelled this in the mall awhile back but didnt get it.. I was skeptical bout this but for me personally im believer it smelled just as how i liked it.. and as the day goes by the better it settles.
I'm a fan of John Varvatos' Dark Rebel and this scent is also on my hit list but , to me, this scent is a little sweeter and less distinct than Dark Rebel. Another good cologne to wear for everyday use so I can save my Dark Rebel a little longer.
I liked this scent....not in love with it like a couple of the others from Varvatos, but it's a good scent to have to mix up your routine. Leather and wood give this a slight musky/spicy odor.
It's not a clean/crisp smell so would not recommend for office wear, but would seem appropriate for date night / night out.
Not really a fan of this one. I fell victim to the hype. It doesn't smell "bad" per say, but it isn't something I would wear on a daily basis -
especially not in the summer. Putting it on the shelf for winter maybe.
I've heard a lot of hype about this fragrance, and the only negative I will put down in writing is that the hype misled me.
It's a great fragrance, matches it's description well. I am a full-time Harley-Davidson rider, and it matches my casual leather-clad style very well. I receive compliments on the fragrance frequently. Woods with a light leather touch on top of a faint vanilla hint.
The hype made this seem like the music of all masculine musks, and I favor very rich musks. As such I was disappointed because I was misled by reviewers that don't know how to properly describe a fragrance. I'm not at all upset because I do love the fragrance. 8/10 will suggest to others.
I like most of John Varvatos's fragrances... the original and aqua would be my favorites but this one is right up there...I am kind of tired of the generic genderless scents that most houses are making.
Wildly complex scent: leather, charred woods, bold Tonka bean/sweet vanilla, oriental spices, violets and vetiver. Dry down IS powdery, but not too sweet. It's like CK's "Obsession for men" with new leather and a campfire. This one will be noticed by all.
