    both of those sound good….
    but I’m skeptical.
    I guess that is being snobby but idc 2bh

    • mals86 says:

      I’m with you, Krok – they sound nice, but will the finished product stand up to the promise of the notes? Only one way to tell…

      Not that I’ll bother. The Family CEO says he has “more than plenty of cologne, thanks.” He’s working down a bottle of Acqua di Gio, which I actually like on him, plus a few other small bottles. And he’s also got a partial small bottle of Jovan Sex Appeal for Men, which I still like on him but which he’s tired of. He won’t even try the sample vial of Czech & Speake No. 88, which makes me all swoony. (It puzzles me – why wouldn’t he want to make me all swoony?)

      • krokodilgena says:

        maybe Kevin will tell us.

      • Daisy says:

        LOL—are you scaring the CEO? if you give him a “look” and say “rrrrrrrrrr” does he run? Has he been known to utter the words “what’s gotten into you???”

        • mals86 says:

          No! ‘Nuff said.

          • mals86 says:

            I was really commenting that in true farmer fashion, he thinks that the bare minimum will do. Except when it comes to Red Sox tickets.

          • Daisy says:

            well, no, of course not….Sox tickets are important….

      • krokodilgena says:

        btw I still need to send your stuff out

        • mals86 says:

          What?! You mean you haven’t mailed it? You evil Opium-wearing harpy! I shall hate you forever and ever… JUST KIDDING. I’m not mad. :) Actually, you made me laugh.

          • Daisy says:

            “opium-wearing harpy”???? ohhhh, the gloves are off!

            Only here would that be a comment that could practically draw blood. lol

      • Robin says:

        No 88 is a great scent!

      • Joe says:

        I love the question “why wouldn’t he want to make me all swoony?” HA!

        Maybe you should pose the question to him as bluntly. ;)

  2. krokodilgena says:

    I would make fun of the “it smells like success” but those notes do sound like they’d smell like success to me. I’m still skeptical though!!! But I’ll try it if I come across it.

    • Robin says:

      The notes sound good to me, but that doesn’t mean much.

  3. bergere says:

    Does anyone else think the bottle for Power looks like a screwdriver handle?

    • Daisy says:

      Yes! I was just thinking it should say “Craftsman”

    • Robin says:

      Yes! Might look cool in person w/ that cap though. Hard to tell.

    • mals86 says:

      Ha, good one! Power Tools fragrance!

      • Daisy says:

        I’m sure Comme de Garcons is working on it.

        1 tsp– WD40
        5 wafts of “hot electrical smell” (you know the one I mean)
        16 unrepeatable curses
        1 roll of duct tape

        • Rappleyea says:

          I don’t know Daisy – sounds more like a CB I Hate Perfume scent! LOL!

  4. Rictor07 says:

    I have never bought a celebrity fragrance. Cant say id be excited to start with 50 cent, unless i can trick a sales person into giving it to me for 50 cent.

    • Robin says:

      Best of luck with that ;-)

  5. Amanda says:

    Patrick Dempsey 2?
    Wow; they stretched their imaginations to come up with the name…

  6. Amanda says:

    It does sound good though. Maybe something I’d even wear in the winter….

    • Robin says:

      It’s not a great name. I thought Unscripted was a pretty good name…would be better even if they’d called it Unscripted 2, although still they could do better.

      • Daisy says:

        “Still Unscripted”

        • Robin says:

          LOL..works for me.

        • mals86 says:

          Where Is That Darn Script, Anyway?

          • lilydale aka Natalie says:

            I’m behind on all the perfume news and just zipping through the posts and comments, but I had to stop and say THANK YOU for making me laugh!

          • Daisy says:

            Script? there’s a script? who cares…
            just let me look at Patrick Dempsey

  7. kirstw says:

    i expected a bit more from 50 cent. the bottle should be bling lol :)

    • Robin says:

      As usual I only just vaguely know who he is, so I expecting nothing ;-)

      • alltheprettythings says:

        I only know the skits on SNL and MAD TV that portray “Fiddy Cent”. Those are hilarious.

  8. “success” smells suprisingly generic…

    however, I like the Patrick Dempsey bottle quite a lot! not that i’ll ever see it in person.

    • Robin says:

      It’s a handsome bottle, but I’ll never see it in person either.

  9. platinum14 says:

    Nothin’ says dangerous-piece-carrying-gangsta-killa-with-pants-below-yo-ass… like having your own fragrance.
    I can visualize 50 Cent smelling the assortment of mouillettes to determine the right notes: “a little more violet leaves, a little less rose de mai”
    I could have seen a line of grills coming form 50, or even a line of guns or bullets…. but a frag!!!!!
    That just made my day!

    • Robin says:

      LOL!! You clearly know more about 50 Cent than I do.

  10. Dagmar says:

    What does it say about me that I’d be into the Fitty Frag, and I think the bottle is sorta cool? It’s really… industrial-looking. Would love to wear it to karaoke…”Been hit with a few shells now I walk with a limp (I’m a’right)”

    • Robin says:

      And ditto…you ALSO clearly know more about 50 Cent than I do.

  11. thenoseknows says:

    That Power Bottle is simply Laughably Ridiculous! Screwdriver INDEED! and note-wise it is too close to Unforgivable (P. Diddy’s Terrible First Scent) Hope it is better than that scent or Fitty’s Rap Flow!

    • Robin says:

      If it’s a dupe of Unforgivable then it truly is the scent of success, LOL…

  12. owengreen says:

    I really think power would be brave. Be able to bend the rules a little bit. I mean, fifty cent was made (at least in part) famous by the fact that he got shot several times and survived.

    He may not have any real talent (he rhymes ecstasy with ecstasy). But he was shot and lived.

    So please tell me why they didn’t put a few small bits of guaiacol in there for gunsmoke? I mean, just a little something. Add a little bit of “power” to something that should have otherwise been named “short-guy-who-works-at-the-mall-and-drives-a-buick-on-a-lift-kit-when-he-goes-out-on-friday-to-get-his-drunk-on”

    • Robin says:

      Perhaps he is saving his bravery for things other than fragrance ;-)

  13. monstabunny says:

    I think Fiddy Cent should do a flanker called Delusions of Power and it should have crack in it.

  14. jojofan says:

    I liked Dempsey’s Unscripted, so I will be checking the second one out too. He’s so dreamy.. I want to smell dreamy too. I get suckered into these celeb fragrances. :P

  15. jojofan says:

    They sent me a marketing email to rate cologne ads, and one of them was Patrick Dempsey 2:

    • Robin says:

      Odd expression on his face!

  16. BuffyDaLipGlossEater says:

    Smells like success?

    Nah, hate to break to Fiddy here, but I’m not exactly creaming my panties.

    Plus, the look on Patrick Dempsey’s face seems to say, “I can’t kiss her with that huge cold sore hanging from her lip!”
