    Default Anything out there like John Varvatos?

    I really like this frag but the longevity is not very good on me. I would like to find something similar that has better longevity. I believe I actually just need to get a bottle of pure malt.

    You could try Body Kouros. Similar sweet smell. I think JV has a little bit more spicyness than BK but same family of scents, and YSL fragrances last.

    Someone told me Cuba Hollywood is an exact clone of JV. I'm gonna try it out soon.

    John Varvatos smells really good although I agree with the longevity issues and more importantly the scent progression. It gradually becomes dull when the initial hour or so is amazing. It's pretty disappointing but as far as similar smells go, Le Male is very similar although lacking the leather and spiciness and using vanilla instead of dark cherry. Obession Night, and even The One gives off a somewhat similar vibe. There's not much like John Varvatos, it uses quite a bit of unique scents. Body Kouros is similar as well but using benzoin and eucalyptus instead of leather and dried fruit and it lasts a lot longer and the progression is great.

    Cacharel Nemo is a great alternative to John Varvatos.

    Burberry London, kinda. I have both. that's what MY nose says...
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
