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.

Smells like Desinex
This was my first cologne sample to give as a gift to my boyfriend. I'm not sure I like it as it reminds me of foot power. I gave it some time to change but it retained the same smell. Can I return it? PS. I gave it to a coworker and it smells great on him. I know scents can change from person to person, but wow!

Good smoky scent for the holidays
I?m becoming a fan of JV and their colognes. This one has an initial spice when sprayed that mellows out and let?s the fir and tobacco settle in. Good for the winter season

Compliments keep coming in. I am so glad to check the reviews from other users before I pick a fragrance. Reviews are helpful to decide, so I went ahead and picked this John Varvatos, Vintage EDT. Indeed, it's the Old World smell, and enough to get an invitation to a small gathering with co-workers. Kudos!

I love this fragrance by JV, it has a spicy sweet smell that is not obnoxious and is pleasant to smell every time you get a whiff. This is also a mature fragrance as it would go well on grown man that wants to smell like he's not trying too hard and knows what he likes, in other words it smells to other people like you've been wearing this scent all your adult life; something in the ingredients triggers your nostalgia center in you brain.

This scent is by far the best scent John varvatos has. It's not to strong and it smells sweet but masculine "vintage" is a great name for this smell.

i enjoy this scent it is neither spicy nor citrus like most popular cologne. The woody scent is a more pleasant scent.

It really doesn't take it's true shape until about an hour of wear. It is a mature scent but I wouldn't say it smells old either. Lasts long and becomes more complex the longer you wear it. At first I got a lot of juniper out of it but that seems to fade after time. It's difficult for me to rate this scent because I don't think I would ever pick it for myself just based of my first initial impression but, after a few wears I have grown to appreciate it more and more. Being in my twenties I think it's more suited for someone just a little bit older but I'm going to rock it for the month.

Not crazy about it when I first put it on, but after about an hour it starts to take shape. The longer the scent is on the more elegant it becomes. Long lasting and complex.

I had high hopes for this fragrance. I was a little put off by the scent initially after I put it on. I have heard that many other of Varvatos scents are really good. I ordered this one based on the other reviews. For one reason or another this was just not a good scent for me. I have always worn Chanel Allure Homme, but they changed the original formula and it is just not the same. I guess my quest for a spicy, woodsy scent will continue. This might be a home-run for some, just not my scent! Too strong!

I got this for my husband, who I thought would enjoy this scent as his natural scent goes really well with more spicy, woody, strong scents. This delivered. It's the sexiest scent I think I've ever smelled on him. You can definitely smell the patchouli right away, but once that note settles you get the leathery pepper notes with just the right amount of pine to propel that scent all the way to dropped panty status. I really like this one, so does he. It's strong enough to wear on date night, but not so strong he can't wear it to work. I am only giving 4 stars because I feel like the scent doesn't last as long as it should for being as strong as it is. Hopefully the full size I get will last longer.

I enjoyed this cologne right down to the very last drop. Had a spicy, leathery scent to it. Definitely a cologne to wear at work but may be too potent for a first date.

I love the way this smalls on my husband! It smells manly and not cheap. I know about this smell. I used to work at the Macy's cologne counter and I'd go take a whiff coz I love it. It smells warm but not too rich. But it is not over powering.

It's unique and I love the spicyness. I wish it had more of the leather and tobacco and less spice, but it's a good break from musky or floral scents. Blends well with tobacco smoke too.

Got this as a gift for someone. At first it has an almost aquatic sporty vibe to it, sort of reminiscent of an old aftershave...but the dry down is amazing. Slightly spicy (think Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb), slightly classic (think YSL L'Homme) but with a definite twist that makes the name of this scent appropriate. It feels timeless, but contemporary. It's unique from any other scents I can compare it to. Not overpowering, medium sillage that turns into a cozier more intimate scent you need to be closer to person for, but still manages to give off a little hint of something attractive to those not super close to you while walking by etc. Overall a lovely and versatile scent that feels age appropriate for men of all ages, college to older men. I really enjoy JV's scents (except one), a nice roundout scent for a cologne collection, if you're looking for another scent to complete a growing collection it is a great choice. Feels all seasonal as well, a scent I would not mind encountering in warm or cold weather.
