Holiday Must Have: John Varvatos from Elizabeth Arden #Giveaway

A popular gift to give around the holidays is fragrance and colognes. I love stopping in at the beauty counters to see what gift sets, or gift with purchases are available close to the holidays.

This year, Elizabeth Arden has a lot of fun gift sets out for both men and women and I got the chance to try out a new holiday set by John Varvatos on my husband. I was both excited and a little nervous because he is particular when it comes to scents and does not like anything that is overpowering.

The John Varvatos Classic Holiday Scent comes complete with a John Varvatos Eau de Toilette Spray and Deodorant in a black keepsake box. The scent is fresh, warm and subtle. I have to say, I love it. Not only that, my husband really likes it too. He says all we need now is a baby sitter so he can put some on and take me out.

Taken from the website, the cologne scent has the following composition:

Introduction:
Crisp, Masculine & Inviting

Heart Notes:
Rugged Trio of Rare Aromatics

Background:
Rich Woodiness with balsamic, ambery and leather undertones

Finale:
Malt and touches of Vanilla extract

This holiday collection set is available at Sears, The Bay, Holt Renfrew, Murale, Sephora and Ogilvy for a suggested retail price of $100.00.

For making my husband smell as good as he looks, John Varvatos makes my sixth day of my 12 Days of Christmas list.

One lucky This Bird’s Day reader will win a John Varvatos Holiday Men’s Collection (Eau de Toilette Spray and Deodorant) from Elizabeth Arden ARV $100.
