About Artisan Pure

The company say:

John Varvatos Artisan Pure is inspired by the verdant and lush hills of Xalapa, Mexico and its vast coffee and citrus groves. Redolent, luxurious citrus notes bring an understated elegance to modern, sun-warmed woods. The fragrance is a crisp, woody citrus scent, as refined as it is cool. Highlighted are three distinct types of petitgrains, which use all elements of the citrus tree: leaves, branches and tender fruit; as well as the best quality of orris.

Reviews of Artisan Pure

What a shame. At first this appears a fresh lemony blast without that awful sweetness and barbershopiness of other similar scents such as G Eof Trumper Cologne. Is this a cheap version of D R Harris Windsor which itself is lovely and fresh but disappears in a wisp of disappointment after 20 minutes? No it smells like those lemon anti mosquito tablets or something similar. Puts me right off. Such a shame.

I really like this cologne. I went through a 4.2 of Artisan and its longevity problems drove me not to buy another. But I'm fond of the creativity that comes out of House Varvatos so I bought this one blind.

Seriously. This fragrance is marvelous. It has a bright and bitter citrus opening that reminds me of neroli but is noticeably different.

In the drydown I find a deep, woody note and a jasmine note that delicately dance with one another without overpowering one another.

The notes listed on Varvatos fragrances always make me laugh; there are far too many to count, and they always seem really embellished. I feel like I'm looking at a brunch menu.

Here's what you need to know: it smells good, it's somehow both a fresh aquatic and a complex and masculine oriental.

I'm in my office wearing chinos, a chambray, and a pair of beaten leather shoes. And I'm wearing this. It's a great pairing. I get a good 5-6 hours out of it which, for a Varvatos fragrance, is outstanding. Objectively? It's OK.

You can wear this to the beach, on a date, on casual Friday. Avoid wearing it with a suit. There are better fragrances to choose for close encounters.

Scent: 8/10

Longevity: 5/10

Reminds me of a sharper version of Voyage d'Hermes. I did a side by side spray on skin comparison. Voyage d'Hermes comes across softer/smoother/more refined/less synthetic. Voyage d'Hermes also seemed to have more depth and the dry down was better. I do like Artisan Pure though. The sharpness is likely from the citrus in Artisan Pure that Voyage d'Hermes lacks. The similarity I guess is from the angelica/cedar. When I purchase Artisan Pure I will see how different the two wear over a longer period of time.

Very nice citrus blast in the opening, fueled by the usual bergamot/petitgrain combo. Instead of neroli, it's lemon and orange, but the effect is still the same. Very refreshing, sour, bitter green citrus fruits.

Later into the drydown you get a spicy cumin note. The base is soft and woody with just a little of the bright green opening hanging on. It's reminiscent of high-end hotel or spa toiletries.

Seems like a great summer scent. Perfect for casual but it's also refined enough for some formal wear.

Projection is good during the first couple hours and then it settles down on the skin. That final phase lasts up until 4-5 hours.

Wow!

Instant sunshine burst of citrus in a bottle.
Comes across as grapefruit but must be more because that initial blast is so strong and complex.

A true flanker: smells like the original Artisan but engulfed in a bright citrusy mix.

Perfect for hot sunny activities, including beach and other water sports.

Quite nice this!
