Designer John Varvatos has captured the essence of all that is Mediterranean in his Artisan range of fragrances. Citrus, spice and fresh herbs mingle with woody undertones that are, above all, clean and fresh. Old-world elegance combines with a modern twist and we just love the hand-woven jackets that each fragrance sports.
Artesan has a hand-woven rattan cover and explodes with fresh citrus and spice. It’s the ultimate in masculine with top notes of Sicilian clementines mingling with Tangelo fruit from Florida, Mandarin oranges from Mexico, Wild Thyme, Ginger, Kephalis – the list is endless. Eau de Toilette Spray 125ml, £60, 75ml £43, deodorant stick 75g £19.
Artesan Acqua is the newest fragrance and completes the trio. It’s a cocktail of Tangelo, Mandarin and Angelica Root with Clary Sage, Lavender, Coriander and Geranium. Again it’s a masculine fragrance although floral in character. We think the woody base of Moss and Patchouli adds refinement and real interest. John Varvatos Artisan Acqua, Eau de Toilette, 125ml, £60, 75ml, £43.
Deeply contrasting, Artisan Black is fresh and invigorating, with chypre undertones and leathery accents. There are also a lot of citrus scents mingling with cardamom and coriander giving depth to it’s freshness. Eau de Toilette Spray 125ml, £60, 75ml £43, deodorant stick 75g £19.
