Scent could last longer
The longevity of the scent last for about 2hours and not as long as I would wish it did. However the first spray and 30minutes later it smells amazing. Definitely something to wear to church, or a small occasion, wouldn’t recommend wearing to work, or if you’ll be out for a couple hours and want to smell good. It is a very manly smell and that attracted me to it. The smell is amazing, just wish the scent lasted longer.

I feel like this is a casual date night, or even to the office kinda fragrance. Doesn’t last extremely long, but reapply and you’ll be good to go. I get a very clean woodsy spice smell out of it. Layered it with Coach for him, and wow. Sex appeal

This is the kind of scent I want to wear out on a date when i'm looking to impress. This is the kind you put on and feel sexy walking by everyone else when you see them look up and think "damn, what was that smell". Highly recommended, I'd buy a bottle of this for sure.

This stuff is the stuff of women’s dreams.
Ever wonder how James Bond smells while drinking a Vesper martini, playing high stakes poker against Le Chiffre in the Casino Royale, AFTER killing two assassins in a stairwell? He smells like John Varvatos.

My new daily driver. Some colognes may be more seasonal than others but the top notes don't over power the rest of the notes that include tabacco, suede, juniper berries, and lavender.

Awesome fall/winter scent
This is a great fall scent that isn’t too heavy! I really like it, and I’ve been mixing it with Prada’s Luna Rossa, I think it’s called. They go together so well, because this scent is slightly more “masculine” and it mixes well with the lavender in luna rossa.

I like the woody, sweet rich scent. It's not overly fruity like some of the other colognes. It's also not harsh, excessive and overly masculine. It's sophisticated, understated and will be envied by everyone who can experience this smell. If you're still reading this, trust me; try it because you may just have to buy a bottle next.

Smells so good but it doesnt last
Great sweet, leathery, woody scent but it doesn't project and doesn't last more than 4-5 hours. So frustrating as i really like the smell of this. I may just have to use more sprays i guess. One of the best of the JV house along with Vintage and Dark Rebel. Wish Scentbird had Artisan Pure to try.
