Masculine recommendation that disappears quickly
pleasantly masculine scent mixture, which hardly changes from the first perception to the final flying away after only 2-3 hours. A cheap, recommendable surprise when testing some fragrances.

The all around EDT for men
This John Varvatos EDT is full of happy contradictions: bold and relaxed; subtle and sophisticated; masculine but delicate; day elegance and night sensuality.
There is a couple of notes - fig/fig leaves and Tamarind - that blended with plum, tobacco, leather, thyme, amber, vanilla and not to much oud, make a unique marvelous, sweet, creamy scent. It's a very well crafted fragrance. If it would last more it would be a real masterpiece. The dry down although a bit subtle it's very pleasant.

Clearly in my top 20

The bottle is very masculine and elegant.

My 125 ml John Varvatos costed me 26 Euros
My rates were changed (with batter performance) after the following recommendation:
Apply 2 sprays above your ears, 2 sprays in the neck/chest and 2 sprays in your clothes. It does not stain. The longevity of the "normal" 2 sprays behind each ear, will double and you will get a good 4 hours projection, 2~3 feet sillage and >8 hours longevity. More than enough performance!

Quintessentially American
Scentrack
Sheryl Crow – My Favorite Mistake

John Varvatos for Men is at first sniff a generic fragrance, but beneath the simple surface are numerous dark and bright layers. All these layers are perfectly polished and harmonized to create an olfactory balance. Brighter fruity notes of plum and fig are juxtaposed to darker and plushy suede accord fortified with some woodsy notes. This main juxtapose is accompanied by the short lime note in the opening, and spicy notes of pepper and cinnamon in the heart. There is also some, to my nose, unidentified darker herbal entity. The summarized composition is masculine in a classical manner, yet so modern, clean and wearable. In my European eyes, a quintessentially American.

Rating: 7/10
