A fresh scent with authentic roots, the herbal and citrusy notes of Artisan Blu result in a rich aquatic take on the previous Artisan and Artisan Acqua fragrances. The Mediterranean Sea inspired Artisan Blu fragrance brings the same authenticity, intricate design aesthetic and distinctive hand detailing reminiscent of both the designer’s Artisan fashion and fragrance collections.
Artisan Blu bears the imprint of John Varvatos: the signature mix of old world craftsmanship and the sophistication of modern technique. Much like a man’s wardrobe, each John Varvatos fragrance represents a different sensibility to suit the wearer’s attitude, mood or circumstance. Artisan Blu embodies the casual elegance of the Mediterranean lifestyle.
Artisan Blu embodies the craftsmanship and attention to detail of the John Varvatos Artisan fragrances, with radiant crisp notes that take you to the Mediterranean.
TOP NOTES: The fragrance opens with a mix of citrus and earthy notes such as Bergamot, Bitter Orange, and Fresh Lavender. Chayote and Basil bring a fresh green harmony to the opening notes of the scent.
HEART NOTES: Herbal accents of Palmarosa and French Clary Sage compliment the notes of Egyptian Geranium, Florentine Iris, and Orange Blossom Absolute resulting in a sensual masculine floralcy.
BASE NOTES: A woody base of Patchouli, Cedarwood, Parasol Pine, Tamarisk, and Pistachio Tree Resin lingers, bringing a refined and artisanal touch to the base notes of the fragrance.

Artisan Blu compliments the beautiful collection of handcrafted and distinctly packaged Artisan fragrances. With its azure blue color scheme with silver accents, the Artisan Blu bottle resembles the color-saturated sea the fragrance was inspired by. The attention to detail and craftsmanship seen in John Varvatos garments and leather goods are brought to life in the fragrance packaging, with each bottle being handcrafted from natural materials for a one-of-a-kind creation. As a result of the meticulous attention to detail and high quality craftsmanship, each fragrance possesses its own eclectic character and an unmistakable sense of crafted luxury and charm. As with the Artisan and Artisan Acqua scents, the clean lines and casual elegance of a traditional flask inspired the handcrafted rattan bottle, and is finished with an antiqued cap and artfully engraved tag. The Artisan profile echoes the contemporary silhouette of the John Varvatos Collection fragrances, with each scent presented to employ different textures, creating a striking new design and identity.
