Vintage blends the exotic astringency of juniper, patchouli, and lavender with the cool reserve of fir balsam for an Old World, polished feel. A satiny layer of jasmine adds a layer of plush floral elegance in the heart, while a base of tobacco and suede accent the herbs with private club sophistication.

Leather and Tobacco
This makes you smell like you're in an old-timey library with high back leather chairs, smoking a gentleman's pipe, and drinking scotch in black jeans and harness boots. Sophisticated, yet also worn and rugged type of manly.
Oh my goodness.
Oh my goodness
Smells good initially
Smells good when you spray it on but scent doesn’t last.
Musky, Spivey, leathery with a hint of floral
Really nice every day scent. Not too bold, for every day wear
This is a great scent for wearing to work. ITs clean and light, and not too overpower or bold, but incredibly pleasant.
Not too overwhelming, not a sweet smell but last a decent amount of time. I wouldn’t wear for someone I was trying to impress.
Wasn’t my style
Smells just like one of my grandfathers cologne he wore before he passed I love it!
it smells fantastic, definitely going to buy again
I like it, but think there are better scents that fit my preferences better.
Subtle scent, complimentary to my personality.
Light fresh smell
Great fresh masculine sent, The combo of scents work together perfectly, Definitely recommend :)
I like it, though it’s a little bright and crisp. I tend to lean more towards spice and warmth
Very happy with this product, smell good and the woman love it
smelled like it was vintage, too strong and not in my scent profile
Smells clean, but not like detergent. My only knock, I don’t feel like it lasts as long as it should.
An amazing and intoxicating scent
The balance of tobacco and the other spices is perfect in this scent. Adding this to my list of favorites, it's such a unique scent that gives me the edge i need.
It gave me a headache
It gave me a headache but everyone else loved it
I was given a bottle of this a few years ago as a gift. It was just as good as I remembered.
The scent was not too overpowering which is something I’m concerned about. The scent was perfect and makes me feel like sitting down with an old fashioned 👌
Exactly what I wanted got lots of compliments
Your scent bird
So far everything I have gotten is great I like it a lot from yous. Some aren't very strong and have a slight fruit smell but the musky manly like scents seem to go well with me.
Got a lot of complements and liked this scent. Classic and warm scent.
old MAN getting the LADY'S
yup get those lady's stuff
My husband enjoyed the scent
smooth and sophisticated
The scent was really fresh with a slight musk!
By far my favorite one so far. Can’t go wrong with it
A bit too musky for me
Pros and cons
The sent was good but i work in a medical clinic and cant wear it all the time. But when i do it last all day and gets stronger with my body heat so i have to spray very very little after the shower.
Not too strong
Very gentlemen like smell
Great sophisticated scent
Bottle should be bigger
I like the smell its just like the description
This scent was very strong. I do like the scent, but feel this is something my dad would wear when Tammy mother out on a date.
Really good for business meetings, a very formal scent for sure. Would not where this for a date though, the scent is not sweet enough.
Wow, this is what a man cologne should smell like.
Wow.. this is a perfect smelling cologne. This is exactly what a man's cologne should smell like...
Cologne smells wonderful just it says
Didn’t make the cut
My first impression of this scent wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. I figure it was going to be a light smoky smell. but it was Very over bearing and it more to your Cigar smokers￼ if you ask me. A Gentlemen of a certain age
Not for me
too spicy for my taste
It is very hard to rate what other people think about the scent, because we are all quarantined in the house. I liked it very much!
When you are quarantined in your apartment, you can’t get other people’s opinion. I liked it very much, because it was fresh and not overpowering. I have other scents that are very overpowering and people have complained about the smell. This scent is great!
has a great smell and has a lot of product you dont need a lot
reminds me of my uncle that passed gave me a nostalgic smell of being younger
Love this one, lasts most of the day, great combo of tobacco and suede.
Again, I get these for my boyfriend so he can try new scents. This one reminds me of the nineties, maybe early 2000's. It has a very after shave effect but can also be sophisticated.
It was what i expected and works well with my body chemistry!
The smell was very firm but no over powering, so i can use 2 squirts and it will last the entire day.
I had no expectations
Ready for a new scent
A little more spicy scented than I usually prefer but still very pleasant.
Bought a bottle of this right away. Great for a date night and very unique. Perfect balance of fresh notes and spice. This scent says, “I’m a distinguished and established man!”
My girl just couldnt get enough of the sexual fragrance appeal of thus cologne.. its a must have to my collection.
Not bad, just not what I expected
Was great for work or play
I never received my product
I never received my product in the mail.
Really enjoyed all day
Has a soft gentle smell.
Nice fresh and clean fragrance
Met my standards and I’m very happy.
A little more jazz and tobacco
I liked the spicy notes, but I was looking for more tobacco or jasmine notes.
It's good while it lasts
Smells great but does not have any longevity.
Everyone loves this one
Good cologne, will become staple scent for me
Smells great and is exactly what I had hoped for in the musky category
One of my favorite
I loved it and more importantly my wife loved it!!!!
Old man smell
It smells like your grandpas house, Tabasco scent too strong. I did not like it at all.
Really like this scent!
It’s too strong for an every day. This would be best for a night time or weekend. Too loud for 9-5 space
Great smell, very sophisticated ! Not the most versatile but very masculine.
John Varvatos vintage
Very overpowering at first but lasts all day. Smells great and I recieved many compliments
It just wasn't enough.
I liked it. It just wasn't enough.
turned alot of heads
its good it has a nice smooth scent to it nice
This is me all the way!
if you could send me 12 bottles of this i would be perfectly happy!
This scent was right in line with the fragrances that i like. It has very pleasing scent to me and a lot of women i am around commented how much they liked it
Fresh spring scent
It smelled sweet and spicy all at once! Loved how it mixed with my body chemistry
As a collector...
I collect and sample many colognes. This smelled as advertised and vintage similarity but smelled like a couple of nostalgic musky colognes from the 90s. The suede and juniper smells together kinda saved it from getting a bad review. For the younger guys this is similar to what your father would wear back in the day...
Very good scent that lasts fairly well
It wasn't long lasting.
Nope! Not so much!
Not at all.
Nicely arranged scent and not to overpowering!
Very happy with this scent. Just what I was expecting. Its perfect 👌
I didn’t dig the scent of this, it smelled like a cheap cologne I used to wear when I was in middle school. Just not my preference.
I like this cologne, but scent is different than I was expecting.
Too expensive for what you get.
Too much money for what you get not worth it.
Smells soo good wife loves it.
I like it!
Might make you smell like an old man but but I think it's going to make you smell intelligent.
kinda cheap smelling..
So maybe this one doesn't match well with my natural oils. I really like other colognes from this brand. This is good quality, just as i said doesn't match as well with me
nice and woodsy!
My husband smelled delicious everyday this cologne lasted. I would definitely buy the full size bottle.
My least favorite so far in the JV lineup
like a sweet pine. masculine, date night.
This scent has a spice yet sophisticated smell. It’s fresh and fancy. From afar it smells like cedar and close it’s a warm yet indulging smell
This scent says "I'm a man of the world who knows what the FFFF I'm doing." Sophisticated ruggedness with a touch of "Join me for a night cap in the study."
smell doesn't last long
Smells good, but best for an older gentleman.
Great scent. Tobacco and rum come through but in a warm, sweet, and inviting way. Can't really describe it any other way. My girlfriend loves it. I put it 2nd place to Versace Eros--totally different type of scent but in terms of personal preference.
reminds me of the 40's
