Reviews of Artisan

Mmmm, What a lovely clementine - I mean cologne. It's not really clementine, it's more like a mandarin tree was grafted to a pomelo & orange hybrid then the product was genetically merged with lavender by mad scientists because why the hell not. What you get is really good. You know when you have the first whiff of a mock orange blossom and it smells so good because it's fresh, fruity yet floral, and zesty. I like that.

After the head note fades from the spotlight you begin to notice the complimenting scents of jasmine and other herbals, but why should I talk about them when I can talk about the clementine scent. Ah, clementine. I love the floral citrus scents. They remind me of when I was I child and I went picking them from my Uncle's tree.

I rate this Clementine out of 10.

Well, on this one I don't have anything new to add... It's pretty much been stated in a lot of previous reviews...just to echo...starts out promising with a juicy/fresh/aromatic burst of awesome orange smell...quickly turns somewhat generic/synthetic musky wood smelling with a little touch of orange flower/blossom, and then...poof!!!!...disappears, hardly even a skin scent left...I honestly get maybe an hour tops out of this...disappointing as it does start out promising, and then it's downhill from there...

Smells like Versace Dreamer and Burberry Weekend mixed together. Horrible longevity(barely any, but strong all at once, then fades) :(. Almost smells like Play Doh. Not gross, but not purchasable(unless it's pennies).(I was lespritz on here till my email got hacked. :()

Synthetic orange in a wicker basket, then the orange is gone 20 minutes later, and your left with a mild wicker basket smell. Nice smelling for 10 minutes then pointless.

A pleasant mandarin citrus opening with a kitchen herb note leads to a somewhat exotic drydown, dominated by gentle spices and floral impressions. The base has a woodsy flavor. Never exciting, this is a nice, solidly crafted scent with decent sillage and projection on my skin, but an abysmal longevity - no, shortevity on me of two hours. Nevertheless, pleasant it is.
