Far from flashy hues and bold patterns, this season’s menswear staples go back to the classics.

Classic Yet Modern

Meet the latest offering from menswear designer John Varvatos: Artisan Blu, a fragrance that masterfully marries the crisp aquatic breeze of the Mediterranean Sea with an invigorating blend of citrus, fresh herbs, and woody characteristic. Top notes of citrus and earthy elements such as bergamot and bitter orange give way to a masculine heart of palmarosa, French clary sage, and Florentine iris, all underscored by woody notes of patchouli, cedarwood, and pistachio tree resin. The limited-edition fragrance’s packaging is similarly Mediterranean. A handcrafted rattan bottle, finished with an antiqued cap and engraved tag punctuate the azure blue and silver-accented bottle. A modern statement from John Varvatos, on your dresser and on your wrist.
