Reviews of Artisan

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.

This was given to my husband as a gift. It made the rounds at our gathering and got the approving oohs and ahhs of a delightful fragrance-- I fear I'm the only person who doesn't like it!

It is incredibly feminine, so much so that I came online tonight to google and PROVE to my husband that he was wearing a perfume intended for women! (He wears it despite the many times I've told him how I feel.)

I'm floored to see that I was wrong and that it is indeed meant for men (though I can't even imagine what type). To me, this smells like an older woman and not in a good, sultry, experienced way. It's more like a 'Hey, Y'all! I'm Paula Deen!" attention grabbing sort of way with a big fake and bright white smile.

I sincerely fear for my husband's masculinity.
