This cologne was created in 2004 in cooperation with Rodrigo Flores-Roux. Made out of Indian fig leaf, fig fruit, coriander, clary sage, leather, lime and plum, it is spiced with cinnamon, pepper, along with wooden accords of cedar and sandalwood. Most would agree that this is a Fall, Winter, and Spring fragrance.
I like this one a fair bit. John Varvatos has strong scent to it, sharp and spicy. Later it cools off with scents of leather and just a hint of sweetness which could be the Medjool Dates coming out. I could wear this everyday just to transport myself out of the job and onto the beach of some South Pacific island!
Update: I still love the heck out of this scent. I have nearly gone through my entire vial I got from Scentbird! My only complaint is that it only lasts about three or four hours on my skin at best and then it is gone. But no problem there, reapply and enjoy once again 🙂
This is definitely one that I am adding to my full bottle collection, which is starting to get large.
Cologne can become rather expensive but now that I am starting to enjoy experimenting with it I have found that Scentbird is something of a godsend. With them you can get a vial that has approximately .27 oz in it which is worth about a good 100 sprays or more for 14.95 at the lowest subscription rate. There are two more rates to look at which give you even better deals. So it is honestly a rather cheap monthly subscription for the ability to test run a scent that you would like to try out. They have a large selection of men’s and women’s cologne and perfumes to choose from so if you get the middle subscription which is 2/month for 25.00 you can get one for yourself and one for your lady. Hmmm wouldn’t that be nice? So just follow the link below and enjoy yourself, I know I am. Scentbird
You can also get this on Amazon for a decent price John Varvatos Eau de Toilette Spray, 4.2 fl. Oz. mens cologne. Totally worth it.
