Fresh and More than Acqua Scent (9.125/10)
Fresh scent. Feels like a combination of citrus scents and musky scent. The scent is more than an acqua scent and its unexpected.

The hold of the scent is medium.
For non 4-seasons countries, it is very suitable on day and summer season. The longevity can hold for only 2-4 hours.
For the 4-seasons countries, the longevity is better which can be around 5-6 hours.

The performance is good on top notes. But fades away gradually within middle. Surprisingly, the base notes hold better even the scent is not so strong, but it is still there.

The sillage is medium. The effectiveness is not enough.

The uniqueness is on the bottle rather than the scent. Because it is in the family of John Varvatos Artisan, the scent is quite similar from each other, but the bottle is unique.

Bottle Design
The design is unique and attractive. With the mixture of modern design and traditional craft, it is a superb design of the John Varvatos Artisan Acqua fragrance bottle.
