    Default Collection, meet John Varvatos; JV, meet my collection.

    My 2.5oz John Varvatos arrived today. I know that the prevailing opinion here on John V is ďho-humĒ, but I really like Tamarind though (Iíve even got tamarind hard candy) so for me this juice is unique enough to justify $24 for a bottle. Iíll post a review after Iíve had a chance to really wear it. Iíve only dabbed with my 7ml mini up to this point.

    Meantime, has anyone sniffed JV Vintage?

    There is no Nose....

    Where did you find it for $24?

    I like my mini alright, I use it for generic 'going out' occasions.

    On ebay. Pretty standard price from the more reputable sellers out there. S&H was $7.

    "Ho-hum"? Really?? John Varvatos was actually the runner-up for best new frag of 2004 (right behind B*Men) in the annual Basenotes Fragrance Awards.

    For the record, I love John V!!
    David and Becca forever!!

    I like this fragrance. Wearing it today I believe I've noticed some resemblance to Boss Bottled, another fragrance that gets the "ho-hum" treatment but that I really like.

    Actually i've whiffed JV-Vintage and i find it more comfortable during the winter months than JV-org (although this can be worn all year round). I've been told that women are digging the Vintage over the original much more. I wish that i can recall the structure of the scent but to my nose it's more pleasing.. Sorry I wish that I could get more in the depth with my reply. Perhaps someone else can indulge.

    I like JV too ... but I get absolutely no longevity out of it ... and the Vintage was even worse. I "ebay-ed" it after one wearing.

    They really need to do a JV "extreme" or "intense".
