    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?

    Pass. I personally don't find anything interesting about this fragrance.

    Would have gone with different notes for 'golden'.

    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

    My guess? Smells nice, but mediocre longevity.

    In general his fragrances aren't bad, so I'll try it. I'm not expecting much, but you never know.

    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.

    Plenty weren't. They also didn't stab a record exec in the stomach and get off without jail time. Feel no desire to line his pockets on this one, or anything else he does.

    There's simply no way Creed would ever consider doing that.

    'Gold for Men'... Boring and unimaginative name, just like the guy himself...

    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.

    Ingredients look good on paper, I guess this will be mainstream but actual blend of composition and artistry is another thing when we actually take a sniff at it...well see

    eventhough I don't approve of JZ, and what he stands for ....cheerios

    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?

    A little off topic, no?

    Kidding! You'll sometimes see him referred to as Hova, so Jay-Hova = Jehovah, the God of rap. I've no idea where the Z comes from though.
