About the Product

Fragrance Family:

Citrus

Scent Type:

Citrus, Aromatic, Fresh Spicy, Herbal

Notes:

John Varvatos Artisan Pure cologne is a potent citrus scent for men. It opens with an eruption of citrus fruits like clementine, mandarin orange, lemon, and bergamot. These are blended with the warm and aromatic combination of thyme and marjoram. The spicy herbal feeling continues as it enters the heart, introducing petitgrain and ginger middle notes. Tenacious orris root, smoky wood notes, powdery musk, and sweet amber make up the base of this fragrance for a rich and rugged dry down.

Hey, everyone. Justin here. And today, I'm reviewing Artisan Pure by John Varvatos. This men's scent was released in and is inspired by the hills of Xalapa, Mexico, which are full of citrus groves. Clementine and petitgrain dominate the scent with other citruses, and marjoram supporting the top of the fragrance, ginger spice at the heart, and a base made up of wood, amber, musk, and orris root. I'd recommend this one for spring and summer day wear in particular. That is all for now. I hope you enjoyed this review. And please don't forget to follow FragranceX on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat. And please subscribe to our YouTube channel.

FAQ

How Do You Apply John Varvatos Artisan Pure Cologne?

John Varvatos Artisan Pure cologne for men performs best when applied to pulse points like behind the earlobes, in the elbow creases, or behind the knees. This is a potent fragrance, especially the opening, so you only need 2 sprays. Apply it to clean, dry, and fragrance-free skin to avoid muddying the notes.

What Season Is It Best For?

The burst of citrus and spicy aromatics make Artisan Pure an excellent Summer fragrance. During the day, the heat and humidity enhance the notes. While you can wear it casually at night, it may be a little too sunny for evenings with friends or intimate dates.

What Does Artisan Pure Cologne Smell Like?

This men's cologne by John Varvatos starts with a bomb of citrus and herbs that leaves you feeling awake and refreshed. It’s a scent reminiscent of a bright Summer morning calling you to go out and see where the day takes you. The subtle spiciness fills you with confidence and inspires you to try new things, while the woody and powdery base notes give you a rugged, masculine edge.

How Long Does Artisan Pure Last?

This fragrance for men has moderate longevity and will last between 3 and 5 hours, depending on your chemistry.

Why Does It Smell So Good?

Artisan Pure by John Varvatos is a fragrance that gets better and better the longer it’s on your skin. The initial citrusy opening gives you a heady rush that will immediately awaken you, making it perfect for daytime application. The fresh herbal notes keep you calm and confident as you move through your day, and the masculine base notes will give you an alluring air.

Great cologne. Great for your collection

Great cologne gentleman. I'm not a professional but I read a lot about it and have collected a significant collection of cologne over the years. Bottom line. It's definitely a cologne to add to your reservoir. It's crisp, clean, not overbearing, subtle, and fresh. It reminds me of the smells you

would experience at the beaches in the Caribbean. It lasts for 2-4 hours tops, as you would expect from an Eau De Toilet. It has a nice fresh opening that dies down after 20-40 min (depends what type of clothing your spraying it on), then finishes with a subtle earthly base for the remainder. It's unique and that's the biggest thing about this cologne I really enjoy. I haven't smelt anything like it as of yet. So, it's worth having in your lineup of colognes, men. I would use it more avidly in the spring/summer as it doesn't have the sort of robust punch you may want to experience in the fall/winter. So gents, definitely a spring/summer fragrance but of course it's subjective and wearing it all year is acceptable indeed. This cologne reminds me of my vacay's in the Caribbean!

look for projection and longevity which it does not have on me. I get about 3 hours longevity on my skin; projection is intimate. With all that said; Fragrancex is reliable when it comes to delivery. Thank you. I'm in South Africa and got mine three weeks after payment.

Niche quality citrus woody masculine scent & great Value!

One of the most magical openings of a fresh citrus scent ever, for me its niche quality. Yes, its synthetic but smells natural - a high quality blend, masterfully done. Don't know Xalapa but do know Amalfi Coast and Italian citrus groves and this is what this makes me smell and feel like - citrusy, clementine, ginger heaven with a masculine woody dry down finish. Fantastic alternative to the popular sweet/blue boy summer scents. Highly versatile, I wear it to the office occasionally but it's best in the sun (weekend/outdoor, beach etc). Longevity ab. 6 hrs, 3 hrs projection but gives a nice sillage bubble and pleasant whiffs. Different, unique and definitely one of my favourite fresh scents along EN Sport, Dunhill Icon/Century and Mercedes Benz Silver. Worth consideration - for me it'll always be part of my freshies rotation; it's a feel good Scent!

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

Fresh Clean Citrus Smell

I truly love this scent. When It's first sprayed on it has a spicy with citrus smell in the opening. On the dry down the spiciness settles into a wood and citrus smell. Almost reminds me of a tropical setting of sitting on the beach. I have received some compliments when I have hugged or approached people. I would give it a try it doesn't disappoint.

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

Will not purchase again

So many reviewers said that this is the strongest of the John Varvatos line and really performs in the summer, at least for me it does not open up in the heat at all it actually almost doesn't exist unless I touch my nose to my arm to smell it...

No, I would not recommend to a friend.

Great summer scent

I have more than summertime fragrances than I need but this is always my go to for compliments. It's not as widely used as other in the market so it really catches people's attention. It opens With a nice fresh, citrus and slight floral notes. The opening only lasts around 40 to 50 minutes for me. After that I get a very subtle musky/wood sent from it. I love the unique and complex notes but wish it lasted longer. For the first hour and a half I get pretty good projection from it however after that it stays a little closer to my skin. I only get about 4-5 hours from it so I wish the longevity was better. This is a great fragrance to add to your collection for the summertime. Hands down my favorite fragrance from the Artisan line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

I would recommend

The scent is fantastic, very light and fresh. Smells like summer or vacation in a bottle. I find myself wearing this a lot and it's not overpowering, so it works well for an office environment. Projection and sillage are about what you would expect for a warm/hot weather fragrance. This was a blind buy based on reviews and I would buy again.

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

I ordered Artistan Tester Version from them and I'm pleased with it. So, I ordered Artistan Pure and it arrived with the sprayer didn't work and the ordour is also like too much Sprit.

this is a good fragrance for summer especially for day time. I have hundreds of perfumes and wore this fragrance only once. I still can't say much about it but from the only one time I wore it I can say It is a good floral perfume for man.
