Product Description

Launched in 2004, it makes use of a wide range of rich notes including tamarind tree leaves, medjool date fruit, leather essence, auramber, indian ajowan, clary sage flower and coriander seed flower. This scent perfectly portrays the ideals of the contemporary lifestyle of men today.

By wearing this cologne , you get to have a scent that embodies masculinity, elegance and boldness, the set of qualities that portray the lifestyle of a successful gentleman. Packaged in a very elegant and manly design, even at first glance you can only expect from the brand. So, does the cologne live up to my expectations?

Composition: Once the fragrance opens up, you can really get that masculine scent that has a rich oriental and woody scent. It is a sensual and a very appealing fragrance, the kind of scent that appeals to my taste. Top notes include tamarind tea leaves, Mediterranean herbs and medjool date fruit.

The heart of this fragrance is made up of nice aromatics that give this scent just the right softness and sensuality using fragrance notes like Coriander Seed Templar, Indian Ajowan, Coriander and Clary Sage Flower. The bottom notes include vanilla, auramberand, balsams, and black leather.

The scent of this cologne is really unique. It is bold, modern and its oriental woody scent adds that sensual appeal that everyone should like.

Best Use: Given the over-all quality of this scent, you can wear it in almost any occasion. From your daily work to special events, you can never go wrong in selecting the John Varvatos Eau de Toilette Spray.

With its woody, sensual and striking scent, you have a fragrance that will surely draw attention at any time of the day. It is a versatile fragrance suitable for any occasion.

Longevity: After personally trying this scent in my day to day work and when I attended a few night events, I must say that this cologne is long lasting although that may not be the case for others.

Some may have a different opinion but in my case, it lasts for about 6 to 8 hours which is already a good thing. But if you want a scent that can last for a really long period of time, you might want to search for other fragrance options.

Final Verdict

Weighing the pros and cons, I can still say that the John Varvatos Eau De Toilette Spray is a good choice. The over-all scent quality is excellent, the kind of fragrance that will surely embody the modern men- strong, gallant, sensual and appealing.

It uses a combination of top quality ingredients that give you the oriental and woody scent which makes it a perfect wear whether you are on the go or whether you are going to attend a special event at night.

The only downside is that it does not last long especially if the weather is too hot and you are engaging in highly physical activities. But apart from that, this cologne is superb.

Will I still repurchase? Yes! In fact, it is one of my favorite fragrances.
