    I tried it, but have blocked the memory from mind. I personally would never purchase anything associated with this individual.

    it starts like a greener, more masculine Givenchy Play, but then quickly morphs into insanely sweet fruity bubblegum.

    I heard it smells like Dunhill Desire. If that's the case, than count me out!

    Guava Bubble gum and strawberry kool-aid, flanked by a few masculine synthetic notes, smells wholeheartedly better than defecation. But I share your underlying assertion.

    Thankfully not - I imagine it is about as good as the music.

    Ditto.
    Except for the trying it part.

    I would not spend a dime supporting that ignorant, illiterate and talentless piece of human excrement. Even if everyone said it was the most amazing scent launched in a very long time, I wouldn't even try it.

    Oh yeah. I wish that dirty scumbag lil wayne (I refuse to capitalize these so called "artists" names) would stay in prison and become the plaything of some huge 6'5 guy!

    I'll be contrary and say that I absolutely love Power. It's a wonderfully versatile scent that's never too heavy, but has a commanding presence. It's great in any situation, and would be an amazing signature scent.
    I refuse to sink.

    ..Don't need to double post but I don't understand how some phony punk ass like 'Fiddy' gets his name slapped on a piece of clothing or fragrance. His name would be better suited on a toilet plunger.

    Like so many of the "celebrities" who have stunk-up the mass market perfume counters lately, he is the last person I'd want to associate myself with. Even if I loved the smell (fat chance) I wouldn't wear it on principle. Same goes for Usher or skank queen Mariah Carey.

    I never was into rap that much.
    Ice-T and Cypress Hill were good though.

    Tried it today. Like many have said in another thread, Power is reminiscent of some 80s powerhouses - smells like them but doesn't last like them. Personally it reminded me of Cerruti 1881 and maybe Grey Flannel. I do applaud it for not being run of the mill, but I must also say I don't really like the scent. There's a lingering harsh note that is off-putting to me.

    Damn, so much hate for 50?

    I dont care if your a hip hop fan or not i respect what he does. I doubt that hes an illiterate and talentless peice of crap. His talent is making money and he does a damn good job of it. People hate on everything nowadays and it drives me sick

    Actually, not to turn this topic into hatin' on 50 cent or anything, but he recently posted a tweet that said something to the effect of "If you are over 25 years old and don't eat pu**y, then you should go and kill youself" right after the string of gay suicides. Kind of disgusting if you ask me. Anyway obviously that doesn't have ANYTHING to do with his scent, but I probably wouldn't try it after reading that anyway... :/

    +1. I made a special effort to try it and it was not worth it. I literally have blocked the scent memory out.
