I was walking through the fragrance section of one of the department stores in downtown Toronto the other day. As I passed the John Varvatos counter, a small atomizer caught my eye, and for some reason I decided to enquire about it. The SA told me that is the unreleased Artisan Black by John Varvatos. He didn't know the actual release date but showed me pictures of the bottle to be released. Same style and shape as the original Artisan, but all black, which made it look very interesting. The scent itself is very pleasant as I got a whiff from the small decant. Definite similarity to the orignal, but obviously deeper, richer. Perhaps an oriental version of it. I really liked it, but I also really loved the orignal on first whiff, but then became easily tired of it after buying it on impulse. Has anyone else encounterd Artisan Black? Impressions?
