What Reviewers Say:

Men and women alike love this fragrance. Seriously. Here's what they think.

  • Before this I had Burberry (original), but was never really in love with it. I did some homework on what to look (or smell) for in colognes and went shopping for something new. The few I picked out were Dolce & Gabbana The One, Armani Emporio, and John Varvatos Artisan. The Artisan is citrusy yet musky and has a much more 'relaxed' scent than any other I tried, which is good for those of us who have office jobs and dont want the 'overkill' smell. If your looking for a strong scent that has a 'nightlife' kind of feel, then maybe you should try something else. However if you want a simple, masculine scent for daily wear, try this, it's awesome!
  • This stuff is pure gold. On the spectrum, it's got an overall aquatic feel to it, and the dry-down is fantastic. Supple enough to wear all day (though it shines the best during the day), but strong enough to stand out. The base notes are most definitely aquatic, but this isn't some soft, breezy, fluffy aquatic - this is a firm, Mediterranean, strong aquatic, with notes of masculine spice, scruffy sunsets, and citrus, packed in the back of a Sardinian pickup truck.
