plays a prominent role in his clothing, footwear, accessories and fragrances. Before launching his eponymous fashion house in 1999, John Varvatos worked for Ralph Lauren
for seven years, then went to Calvin Klein
, where he was appointed head of menswear design and oversaw the launch of the men's collection and the cK brand before.
His style has always been masculine and his first fragrance (simply called John Varvatos
) evokes that masculinity. This is a woody vanilla fragrance
with a slightly sweet scent. The hidden detail is dates. Very masculine, luxurious and a bit spicy and as to dry down, it takes a leathery turn for a stunning finish.
The follow up, John Varvatos Vintage
highlights tobacco and leather as well as spices, creating a fresh and sweet scent
Interestingly, nearly all twenty of the John Varvatos fragrances released incorporate the element of leather (as both John Varvatos and the brand’s perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux love to wear leather jackets!)
2009’s John Varvatos Artisan
, was the fourth (after a women’s fragrance John Varvatos dedicated to his wife) and is still one of the most popular fragrances in the line. Mr. Varvatos wanted to add a scent unique to the collection that would evoke the feeling of escaping the city in a convertible and trading your leather jacket for a fresh, white cotton shirt. 2017’s John Varvatos Artisan Pure
is another example of this new, fresh outdoorsy direction as is 2016’s Artisan Blu
, which is a vibrant aromatic and aquatic scent
with fresh citruses.
The John Varvatos glass bottle is easily recognizable and are similar in its oval shape. The heavy, metal cap and medallion, both engraved with the John Varvatos logo, give it an air of class and value. The John Varvatos Artisan collection adds details like the bottle being wrapped in thin ropes, like something you might see on a boat. Every bottle in the John Varvatos Artisan collection is handwoven, so that two look exactly the same.John Varvatos jv x Nick Jonas
was his first celebrity / client collaboration in 2018 which continues through 2021. It was not composed by Rodrigo Flores-Roux but by perfumer Harry Fremont (the perfumer who created the renowned CK One
). Still, it has that urban flair.
