    Default Niche alternative to JV Artisan Blu?

    I love the scent of John Varvatos Artisan Blu but it's really bipolar when it comes to performance. One day in the cool it lasted 8 hours. Then in the heat only like 4 hours. Any ideas on a niche alternative that smells similar?
    Top fragrances of all time:
    1. Mancera Aoud Lemon Mint
    2. Frederic Malle Carnal Flower/Iris Poudre
    3. MFK Oud Satin Mood/Dior Oud Ispahan/Roja Dove Amber Aoud
    4. Roja Dove Enigma Parfum Cologne
    5. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Forte
    6. Acqua di Parma Colonia Club/Amouage Beach Hut Man
    7. Zoologist Bee/Roja Dove Sweetie Aoud
    8. Armaf Club de Nuit Intense Man/Club de Nuit Milestone
    9. Nasomatto Baraonda/Gallagher Fragrances Rosé All Dae
    10. Geo F. Trumper Eucris/Penhaligon's Sartorial

    Hey, I'm not familiar with this frag but a popular fragrance website has Mandarino di Amalfi Tom Ford as a "This perfume reminds me of".

    Try Acqua di Parma Colonia Club, Marly Galloway, MFK Gentle Fluidity Silver. Their quality are much better than of Artisan Blu.

    Maybe also (not just because of the naming, far more due to a certain summery fresh, clean, light main theme) Hugh Parsons Blue.
    With more than decent and more than 4 hours performance as well while also reasonable value for money, at a more affordable, almost borderline inexpensive niche pricing.
