Artisan by John Varvatos
For as long as I can recall, I have been a sucker for orange. Whether or not it's the theme of a fragrance or a well implemented rendition of the note, I suppose I like what I like. I also own my fair share of these and have a few stockpiled for future use since everything is reformulated these days. If any fragrance becomes popular enough to keep in production, there's no telling how many times it will be "changed" over time.
On my skin, Artisan delivers citrus, spice and musk all blended in such a way as to showcase the Orange note. The other players are there for the ride, but play a subtle and important role. They give the citrus a different edge, plus allow for a comfortable sensuality to manifest later in the wearings.
I like this scent. Sillage is tuned exceptionally well and longevity is approximately 6 hours on my skin. Not too shabby for a citric dominant fragrance. Thumbs up from Aromi for John Varvatos and his Artisan release. A sample wear is highly recommended.
