    Default Xerjoff to launch new line: JTC (Join The Club)

    not much infos on the lines yet but here is what I got to know from their presentation at Fragranze 2012...

    New Xerjoff series coming: JTC (Join The Club)

    10 new fragrances with an "high concept and profile" to be sold at a "low price". They define the new line as the Xerjoff "entry level"...Probably they should have called it "Join The (austerity) Club"

    From their presentation: "10 excellent perfumes, each one associated with a high-level activity from simple recreation to a degree of real passion.

    Just for an exclusive Club moment, Xerjoff JTC has created an iconic selection which harks back to the concept of selectivity that takes moments in life to their most intense aspects
    ".



    The bottles come with the tipycal Xerjoff golden cap. They're coloured an indigo blue and look halfway between a diamond cut stone and a pear. Actually not bad but the only fragrance I tested (called something like "Comandante") made me instantly loose any kind of interest. I'll try to give them a chance on a second time but, admittedly, I'm not among the biggest fans of Xerjoff...

    Perhaps sales of their pricey lines are languishing too much they had to 'join the club' and peddle mass market frags? Still I'm hopeful for a gem or two.

    Thanks for the info Alfarom, I wonder what Xerjoffs definition of a low price is going to be.

    Probably the same as if Maserati or Ferrari would release an utilitarian....

    Hmmm. Wonder if the quality will suffer. Definitely will have to try. Kobe is one of my favorite summer frags.

    I like this analogy

    These could be great! I believe there are more than a few offerings out there which are priced way out of their league based on the merits of their ingredients or the perfumer making it. I believe that amazing composition are possible without using the finest Thaqueel oud or the rarest sandalwood essences. I will definitely consider these "capable of excellence" -- till proven otherwise.

    Great Scoop Al... you are so knowledgeable!

    Ill try anything, at least, once.

    Xerjoff is not bad. All they need is some fine tuning and they'll end up with very good perfumes.

    for swap/sale:

    I guess they're adding five oud attars to the line also.

    Sweet Assam (a classic oud)
    Java Blossom (woody oud)
    Sukar Aswad (with rose)
    Oud Luban (floral)
    Warda al Oud (with rose)

    Will have to see how far they go to capture the mainstream.

    I received a few samples this morning..

    JTC - 40 Knots
    JTC - Birdie
    JTC - Kind of Blue
    JTC - Shunkoin

    I'll throw up some impressions in a few days. I had a quick sniff of Birdie which is supposed to conjure up an image of a Vetiver laden Golf Course??. Its got a very harsh opening but as it settles to a nice herbacious peppery patch/vetiver combo. Nothing thats wowing me but the quality is there so I've some hope for the others.
