Summary: Artisan Aqua, launched in 2013, was produced by perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux of Givaudan. It is mainly an EDT spring/summer men’s fragrance and is sold as 75ml/2.5 oz and 125 ml/4.2oz versions in handmade rope enclosed bottles. It is not a flanker of its antecedent, Artisan. In my opinion this version is an “aquatic” with mainly citrus and aromatic herbs & spices.
Excerpt: I've bought 2 other John Varvatos fragrances and this one is yet another great smelling cologne of his. I do prefer J.V. Vintage over J.V. Artisan Black but this is a great cologne to add to your collection also. It's starting to grow on me the more I wear it. Give it a try.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sexy
