John Varvatos Artisan Pure
Artisan Pure complements the beautiful collection of handcrafted and distinctly packaged Artisan fragrances. With its clean, bright and almond hue color scheme, the Artisan Pure bottle captures the light, natural and laid-back vibe by which the fragrance was inspired. Sandblasted for a clean, frosted look, the iconic flask bottle is wrapped in durable hand-woven rattan stem. The cap and foot of the bottle is inspired by natural driftwood adding a touch of rugged luxury to the overall design.

UOMO Salvatore Ferragamo
UOMO Salvatore Ferragamo is a charismatic oriental woody creation that leaves a lasting impression, just like the man who wears it. An elegant embodiment of masculinity where vibrant woody notes interplay with invigorating gourmand notes of pure seduction. A fresh and cool opening, infused with an irreverent sense of charm using unexpected ingredients of Black Pepper, Cardamom and Bergamot. The heart of the fragrance is built around an iconic and classically Italian ingredient, the Tiramisu. The combination of Orange Blossom and Ambrox, perfectly represents the duality of Italian men: strong, confident and roguish, yet seductive and sweet. Cashmere Wood and Sandalwood seal the fragrance with a touch of Tonka Bean, leaving an indelible mark with enormous long lasting qualities
