John Varvatos Eau de Parfum is described as belonging to the family of floral chypres. According to WWD,
"In addition to aromatic grappa, the scent's top notes include Georgian apricot, Damascus plum and golden mandarin. At the heart of the scent are accords of rubrum lily, Indian mango blossom, Egyptian jasmine and Turkish rose. The base of the scent includes oakmoss, patchouli, tonka beans and wild honey."
The shape of the flacon designed by Doug Lloyd and made by the Pochet manufactures is inspired by a Grappa bottle, just like the men's scents were inspired by flasks.
The release of the perfume will be gradual starting in February of 2008 at Saks and unconventionally in parfum concentration with 50% of oils, 0.5 oz. for $125. The eaux de parfum will follow in the spring, for $92 and $70.
Varvatos is said to be working on a third masculine scent to be expected by 2009.
