    Default Jay Z is lauching Gold for Men

    Parlux had this to say:

    "From the beginning of recorded history gold has been associated with royalty, purity and strength. Gold is precious and valuable, a standard by which the value of other things are measured. As expressed in the gilded cap, GOLD JAY Z symbolizes SUCCESS, POWER, CONFIDENCE, COURAGE, STRENGTH and PRIDE.

    Everything JAY Z touches turns to GOLD."

    Top: Ginger, Grapefruit, Blueberry, Cardamom
    Middle: Vetiver, Pink pepper, Lavender, Violet leaf
    Base: Amber, Teak wood, Vanilla, Myrrh

    Perfumer: Ilias Ermenidis, who is also responsible for Tommy Bahama for Men, Jil Sander Pure for Men, Boss In Motion Black.

    Does it sound golden to you?

    It looked somewhat interesting until I read the base notes.

    It's only the blueberry, violet leaf and maybe the teak that differentiate this list of notes from any other slapdash modern release, and I'd wager that they won't be very prominent in this fragrance.

    Even with it's ginger,pink pepper and vanilla generic note listing that a ton of modern releases seem to have, I'll still give it a try if I come across it

    Everything Jay z turns to Gold BS yeah more like angel dust lol ( he was a crack dealer in his youth)
    Never a fan of hip hop fragrances along with other celebrity fragrances, it just feels cheesy owning one. Another thing with hip hop fragrances in particular they all serve the purpose of feeding the egos of meglomaniac rappers.

    Not all hip hop artists were crack dealers. In any case all of Jayz's fragrances are pathetic. The only decent hip hop fragrance was Sean John's Unforgivable ( knock off of MI) which has been discontinued now along with his other fragrances.

    I'll check it out. I have all the Rocawear fragrances (OK - bought every one on discount, but still). They're among the better mall frags IMO. Yes, Unforgivable is the standout classic of the hip-hop fragrances, but I really feel that Evolution was almost on par with some very respected designer fragrances like Body Kouros, Polo Double Black, and a few others. Could this one be nice? I'm willing to give it a sniff to find out!

    You would think for as much wealth as he has acquired, he could have went to Creed to have something made for him to market. So this fragrance thing is getting saturated it seems. From Sean John/David Beckham/Jaguar/Mercedes Benz/Ferrari/Bentley/Jay-Z...... Okay?!

    Well I'm sure someone will purchase it; I suppose.

    I said nothing about hip hop artist, I said who wasn't, meaning everybody, globally. Please forgive my use of the lowest form of wit, sarcasm. I stated that to basically say that it is a non-issue and is irrelevant to the topic at hand, which is fragrances. That he sold whatever or stabbed whoever has no bearing on a discussion about fragrances, nor is it any indication of the quality of the fragrance composition that he has chosen to attach his name to; it's just a jab, a poke at his person, that adds nothing to the commentary about fragrances.

    FYI - notes are not the same as ingredients. I don't think that any of the things listed as notes are actually used to make this fragrance, with the possible exception of lavender. There are synthetics than smell sort of like all of those things. If you already knew this, sorry for misunderstanding.

    What does Jay Z stand for exactly?

    No, that's not what I meant. Magnus said that he doesn't believe in what Jay Z stands for. I was asking because I don't know. I'm assuming it's some deeply held fragrance-related belief, of course. ;-)

    Definitely haha. But tacky is not just how it looks. And while it looks tacky (because of the all white with the lame lettering and gold cap), I also see that cap and bet it will be cheap plastic like that Christian Audigier bottle, which contributes to its tackiness. Also, Jay-Z's mug in the ad doesn't help either.

    Edit: Notice I'm not hating on the smell though, cause I haven't smelled it yet! I bet it will smell decent, as I doubt Jay-Z would just throw crap out there without having smelled it himself first. He's a business, mannnn...so I bet he's making sure it's appealing enough to sell a ton of.

    But the people behind the fragrance are important. We are consumers of these products and we help to finance these people and their enterprises. In a capitalist society the consumer does have a responsibility to be aware of which businesses one is supporting.

    If Saddam Hussein had brought out a fragrance, you can bet many people would not have bought it no matter how good it smelled or who the perfumers was. Remember that uproar not too long ago concerning Duchafour's work for some dictator's daughter? There were posters claiming they would never buy another of his perfumes and other's even went so far as to say they would rid their collections of his work.

    Back to the fragrance, I think it will be generic and I would never even considering trying or buying it. A waste of time. Maybe that's foolish for someone who is interested in fragrances.

    Remember the artists almost never have anything to do with these fragrances. They just endorse the checks. This seems to be a result of a handful of mass marketers approaching celebrities for sales appeal. Can you imagine if this was common 50-75 years ago?

    Hitler pour Homme: Layer it with any scent and Hitler will overwhelm it for a few hours only to eventually surrender.
    Stalin pour Homme: Not wearing this monolithic scent will get you free travel to a pre-selected undisclosed location.
    Milosevic EDT: An anachronistic smoky powerhouse of days gone by that everyone wants to forget.
    OJ: The smell of blood and concrete, but he'll deny it.

    I'll try it, but I've seen those notes in many fragrances. I think with the name "Gold", he should have gone with less generic notes, and gone a little darker, woodier, etc.

    No need to work from memory. The notification is still there in my email inbox. You said:

    "Wow @ the haters. That is all. If it was some unknown European Anglo Saxon pretentious bulls**t, many that are "passing" would be inclined to keep an open mind. Yes, I said it."

    And then you deleted it.

    How many unknown *European* Anglo-Saxon pretentious celebrity fragrances do you see people fawning over pre-release? Could you name a few?

    You're quick to think the worst. There may be some prejudice at work here, but for the most part this seems like people being justifiably skeptical about yet another celeb fragrance that sounds like any other designer crap fragrance out there.

    I got to try it today - in some ways, almost expected, but in other ways, not.

    Closest things it reminds me of are two Bonds that I own - I<3NY For Him and Harrods For Him. They both share a strong creamy, slightly powdery accord that reads "white", like the bottle. But on top of that, when it opens, is a very distinct, sharp, but not unpleasant note that is a LOT like the central theme of Creed MI and SMW. My favorite part is a bit of tobacco-ish stuff that seems to stay with it for quite a while.

    I'll be tempted to get this, but I'd like a full wear. I suspect that the base is going to be better than the Bond I<3NY For Him, where the wood is a bit raspy. This seems to be staying very smooth as it heads toward the end.

    Interesting cap. Reminds me of a lot of certain lettered metal artworks that I like. $70 for a big bottle plus travel size (15 mL).

    Crazy! This is available at Macy's? That seems hardly to believe considering it was written somewhere that this wouldn't be available until Black Friday at retailers other than Barney's. Either way, I'll reserve judgement until I smell it. And to the comment that celebrities don't get involved with the creation - that's a false generalization. Many have been very involved: Madonna, Jay-Z with this particular project, 50 Cent, Donald Trump & Sarah Jessica Parker just to name a few. But the extent of involvement depends on the celebrities actually interest in fragrances.

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace

    Love & Luck by Ed Hardy

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    It's very mainstream, and comparable to a lot of scents that were not well loved on here for that reason.

    Looking back again at the listed notes:

    Top: Ginger, Grapefruit, Blueberry, Cardamom
    Middle: Vetiver, Pink pepper, Lavender, Violet leaf
    Base: Amber, Teak wood, Vanilla, Myrrh
    The opening is a bit complex and interesting in a typical designer masculine way: I can see how it's probably ginger, grapefruit, blueberry, pink pepper, and violet leaf.

    The white stuff feels like cardamom and vanilla, warmed up by the amber and myrrh. The vetiver and wood are there, but not really standout.

    The reality - like all designer men's fragrances - something built around a woody amber!

    I too tried this yesterday at Macy's in Northeast Wisconsin (if they have it here, it must be everywhere!). The SA came over to me and seemed embarrassed when she said "here is the new Jay-Z cologne" (I was look at the Issey Miake) "It smells very similar to that" (ummm?) Anyway on first scent, it was actually very nice, a warm peppery shot with a hint of floral lavendar underneath. I said it was "alright" and went on my way. I smelled the paper card about 2 hours later and all I could smell were the base woody scents of Gold. By the time I was done with work (5 hours after initial spray) I couldn't smell anything on the card. If the top and mid notes could last more than an hour and the scent itself had better longevity, It might actually be worth something because the initial spray is quite good (I was expecting a "bug spray" smell). During christmas shopping I'll probably stop by and try it again without any other scents on and walk around for a while with it.

    Smells like a cheap Spicebomb copy. Just like I predicted. Smells like 50 other frags released in the last year.

    Tried it at Macy's. Rather mainstream. Doesn't have a stand-out character, but not a bad fragrance at all. Skin scent after an hour; lasted 3-4 hours. Musk not mentioned...but I got something musky at dry down. Oh, nice bottle.
    Hard for me to buy because there are so many other fragrances that "sticks out".

    I smelled this today. Good for a teen. Longevity is indeed suspect. And as a hiphop fan, those two assessments also fit as statements about his music.
