Curtis Jackson known as 50 Cent will present his first perfume created in cooperation with Lighthouse Beauty this autumn. Name of the perfume is Power by 50 Cent, and Curtis himself participated in design. The fragrance will arrive in exclusive sale at Macy's in autumn 2009.

The composition starts with accords of lemon leaves, black pepper and artemisia, a heart of dark wood, coriander and nutmeg and base notes full of patchouli, musk and oak moss. The flacon was created of dark, blurry glass, with a silver, metal stopper inspired by design of 50 Cent's favourite watch – Piguet. Power will be available as 50 and 100 ml EDT. The nose behind this fragrance is Harry Fremont.

Perfume rating: 3.75 out of 5 with 168 votes.

This is a solid celebrity fragrance. In fact, one of the better ones. You can pick up a bottle of this juice for under $15. Do it. I like but don't love Power. As my tastes continue to be refined I will spray this liberally but not replace the bottle when it's gone. It's a solid, low cost fragrance and I recommend working your way through a bottle and seeing where it gets YOU.

Power by 50 Cent has a fresh opening from which I get mainly an appleish accord, even though apple is not one of the listed notes. The opening is pleasant, but it's in the drydown that I'm confused by where it's going. I'm left with a mix of musk, woods, and unappealing fruit that I cannot really stomach. Overall not a terrible scent but the dry down is just undesirable to me. Projection and longevity are limited but that's to expected at its price (about $15 for 100ml on FragranceNet). Not a recommended fresh cheap option from me but it does seem to have favorable reviews which is why I blind bought it, myself.

Does this flacon look like a watch to you? Looks rather like a grenade to me.
So, I bought this killer to my hubby for his birthday.
It was completely innocent, blind buy then.
And now I can't get enough of him...Oh, dear...What if I run out of you?!
In panic I purchased four more bottles of that leathal weapon in one go on sale: two for him, and two for myself indeed. Phew!
2Tea Room 222, Please....
Utterly my cup of tea! Love it! The opening is sparkling, spicy, citrusey and coniferous too. I can't believe that there is no juniper in the recipe.
It's getting darker, woodier.Then, a naughty patchouli and messy musk steal the show...
Very erotic. Sexy. Lasts long on my skin and is sophisticated enough not to be accused of being pornographic.
Unisex, definitely, my vice, and only....

At this point, you can find this for just about $10 100ml. Probably in the clearance section online and in stores. Bought mine for $13 at Ross a yr ago.

Really a pretty decent frag and excellent for the price youre paying now. I get good longevity and projection. Has a Black XS vibe, swapping the "strawberry" note for lemon verbena.

While I can see teens wearing this, I think this can also work for older folks 30 and above. Just disregard the fact 50s name is attatched to it.

Green, spicy, and aromatic. Very masculine - patchouli and black pepper bomb.

It smells "older" like something from the 80s. It's just missing the nasty "civet" notes that the 80s powerhouses have - WHICH IS A GOOD THING!

It'd be a nice gift for someone 35+ in age.

I liked the review by BrooklynBigAl below but I do take issue with his complaint that the flacon and cap represent a revolver. The cap is modeled after the Audemars Piguet wristwatch that 50 Cent is known to prefer.

The fragrance is very nice. Surprisingly so. At least for me, since my expectations were pretty low. Pleasantly, I discovered that this has a nice opening of green-woodsy and spicy notes rather than the sweet gourmand or aquatic notes that are marketed to younger buyers.

***EDIT*** After giving Power by 50 Cent a longer trial, I am less enthusiastic than my initial impressions. As so many others have noted below, longevity is quiet weak. After about an hour I am left with little more than a soapy skin-scent. The woody and green aspects of the scent dissipate quickly, and I am left with a somewhat more aquatic accord, but with a hint of cinnamon perhaps? There's also a chemical harshness to the remaining soapy scent. Realistically, the scent is so faint after the second hour that it doesn't matter any more.

Scent: 6/10
Sillage: 7/10
Longevity: 2/10

Overall: 5/10. Not the best bargain blind-buy on the shelves, but not the worst either. This won't get you much attention, either negative or positive.

So I was browsing through the reviews looking for something cheap and good to add to my collection as an everyday banger; the kind of scent you wear to work for the benefit of the same chumps you see on a daily basis and not the good juice that you break out when you're meeting an important client.

This here nasal-spray caught my eye but I wasn't going to buy a scent by 50 Cent (50 Scent?) just because it had good reviews and it was supposedly "on sale" for $15. As I'm sure we all know, celebrity scents all wind up in the bargain bin eventually anyway when a star's light begins to dim in the eyes of the public. In other words, they can tell me it retails for $60 and I'm saving $45 'til they're blue in the face but if you ask me, I know it's really a $15 scent and it's not the kind of thing I would blind-buy unless the $15 fair-market-value is reduced to $9.99 or less. The great reviews were not enough to push me over the edge either, there are a lot of other sub-$20 bangers that smell great and get a lot of attention. So even though the combo of low price and good reviews piqued my interest, I was about to take a pass...until I saw the nose behind it.

I won't go into biography mode like some of the scent snobs who write reviews here as if they are personal friends with the perfumers but I will say that I know a little bit about Harry Fremont. No, we don't Summer in the Hamptons together, but at some point during my olfactory expeditions I happened to find out that he is the nose behind my high school signature scent (Polo Sport--which I still wear 20 years later), one of my old single-days favorites (CK One), and one of my newer favorites (Tom Ford Private Blend Noir de Noir ). When I found that out, it was an "a-ha" moment because even though I've worn and loved a lot of fragrances through the years, apparently this guy's sensibilities seemed to be in line with what I like. Kinda' like if you're a fan of General Tso's Chicken and you find out that he also invented pork fried rice of which you are also a fan--you'd be like, "damn, this General is the best!" So anyway, I paid attention to the coincidence, read some articles about the dude and even explored some of his other scents based on his name alone (like Kenneth Cole Black which I also loved). Anyway, the point is, I'm a fan.

That being said, I didn't start a Harry Fremont Fan Club or anything so I don't get notice when he's about to release an odor upon the world. So "Power by 50 Cent" came (and went, apparently) and I never knew he was the nose behind it...until, as I mentioned before, I was trolling the reviews looking for a cheap and well-rated banger.

Blind bought it from Amazon. I got 3.4 oz. for sub-$16. I'm not really into spicy scents but there are plenty of other notes for me to like so that it was worth the buy.

Gave myself a schpritz on my hoodie as soon as I got the box and WHOA, the pepper jumped out STRONGLY. It was almost too strong and I was having that "topnote buyers remorse" but then it settled down. I decided that I would take a late shower to wash off this morning's Versace Pour Homme and apply the new juice to my skin for a fair review.

The pepper jumped out first again but faded a lot more quickly (thankfully) from my skin than it had on the sweater. It settled into the bitter-orangey petitgrain which was nicely balanced with patchouli to keep it both "bright" as well as "earthy"--this my friends is 100% Fremont. That combo of opposites--rather than being a juxtaposition--created a Yin Yang amalgam that was a scent unto itself and it was altogether nice...comforting...and all the other things the other people said. Being the genius that he is, he and his team of nose nerds at the "old factory" (see what I did there?) often combine diametrically opposed ingredients into winning scents. Yeah, I know it's the job of any perfumer to combine disparate notes into something redolent just as a composer combines notes into something harmonious. But most composers wind up with a point-counterpoint composition instead of something mellifluous--and most perfumers wind up with something discordant to the nose. Anyway, Fremont is a champ when it comes to "settling down" citrus or "brightening up" woodsy if you catch my drift.

And speaking of woodsy...there was not so much (on me, anyway). The aforementioned orange-in-the-dirt gave way to a little wood but more coriander and then, finally, moss-and-musk...and then it was gone. Fades fast as others have mentioned (unless you get real close) but for $15 you can reapply.

Overall, very balmy as others have noted (I hate to use that term since things don't smell "balmy"--rather, balms smell like something. Which is to say, a face balm might smell like fragrant woody soap but you wouldn't smell a pile of wood and say, "this smells like a balm.") What was I saying? Oh yeah, this scent is balmy but it's not quite "the bomb". Hehehe, get it?

And speaking of bombs, I wonder if Harry Fremont regretted the bottle design here which is CLEARLY the cylinder of a revolver (but they gave it 8 chambers instead of 6) and the cap is CLEARLY the rim and primer (the bottom) of a bullet. Moreso than Fremont, I think whatever company marketed this regretted the design choice since they probably would've given more of a push to (and had more success with) a classy-looking bottle rather than a gangsta'-looking bottle--what with all the school shootings, etc. over the last few years. Had this very-decent fragrance passed on the way-too-easy "inner city violence meets...class" theme which would have given it the opportunity to be properly marketed, it might have prevented it from failing so quickly (something tells me the input that Fitty' had in this fragrance was more in the sizzle than the steak itself--but that's a good thing, Fremont cooked up the steak and it's a perfect medium rare.

BUY IT. If you're not averse to smelling clean, balmy and earthy, you can't go wrong with Harry Fremont in the bargain bin.

Anyone familiar with Harry Fremont's resume knows he is quite adept at finding ways to blend the aromatic and spicy into unique expressions of fragrance in which his niche seems to be a brilliant balance of classic 1970s variance with 21st century simplicity and minimalism. Power is another one of his very underrated efforts that is one of the most interesting in the whole category of aromatic spicy because it manages to be both fresh and dark, earthy and clean, strong yet subtle.
A blast of oakmoss on top for the first 30 seconds starts Power off; as to signal from Harry Fremont a proper ode to the classic 1970s; before diving into the aromatic and spicy elements that dominate the rest of the way through in a very clean and fresh way. The petit grain on top gives this a soapy and fresh vibe when paired with the pepper and balanced by the artemisia. You would assume from the pyramid this would be a spice and herbal bomb, but the whole way through a fresh, cool quality pushes against a dark and warming pulse that cuts into the impact of the spices overwhelming the wearer. Surprisingly the patchouli is actually rather subtle here despite the fact it gets so many votes here. On my skin the pepper, petit grain, oakmoss and woods really come through the strongest, but none of them dominate.
If you love fresh spice, this one is a must own at its price point of about $10 for a 1.7 oz. this a very finely crafted balance of the aromatic and spicy with a nice background of woods that follows a rather formulaic concept but pulls it off in a very unique way. This is not a scent that will blow people away, but it's one that projects masculinity, personality and originality.
Longevity is solid at 4-7 hours and projection seems subtle because of its chemistry but its actually very reliable and a solid moderate well into the dry-down. If you are tired of the same old aromatic with citrus on top and woods in the base, this is a great change of pace cologne that is worth the $10 asking price.
Scent: 4.0
Longevity: 3.25
Sillage: 3.25
Versatility: 3.0
Uniqueness: 4.0
Overall: 3.5 (good)

now that i finally got rid of my bottle 'performance by jaguar' which i appreciated but was glad to have finished, i just blind bought a new bottle of performance but now named 'power by 50 cent' and that is just 2 much...performance is good for once in a lifetime but it keeps on being a cheap ok mediocre hot weather fragrance....result : i now kinda dislike both 'performance' and 'power'..no extra quality here at all... pretty generic stuff

To me, this is a good casual daytime/early evening scent. I got a 3.4 for $12.99 at Ross. For that price, it's a well worth it. I remember when it first came out it was $50 at Macy's. I remember smelling it and thinking it was nice.

IMO the name doesn't match the scent, but hey, what do I know...?

I picked this up for not very much $ and I have to say I really love the scent. It has a pretty linear smell throughout but whatever the dominant note is (I see lots of votes for patchouli), I find myself sniffing my arm to get another whiff of it. For me the sillage and longevity are pretty average, maybe 3 or 4 hours. For the price you can't go wrong with this juice. I give it 8 out of 10 stars.

I'm sad this wasn't named '50 Scent'...

But that's only because I think I'm funny.

But onto the serious part of the review. This is a surprisingly good scent for a teen market. It's fresh and spicy with a woody base. I found that the patchouli was a little overpowering and was disappointed that the Artemisia didn't really come through that much. Still it has an interesting bottle design and at a such a low price at the moment it would make a great staple for younger men.

I paid less than $7.00 on eBay for 1.7oz bottle including shipping. Figured it was a decent blind by since I love a few other scents by the nose that did this one.

Needless to say, I am considering stocking up on this juice if I can find that deal again. It has good projection and longevity - not on par with my DSquared He Wood Rocky Mountain but this was 20% of the price too. Every man should own a bottle of this juice if you're under 40 and want a woody, musk for evening or colder weather.

I bought it to my beloved in winter season. He give it a try and couldn't smell a bit of it! The scent was so weak! We could smell a little bit of it only somewhere around us in the room. Scent was ok for both of us. But we thought it would not suit for white man, because black man made it or etc.
Now, when spring (almost summer) came, we give to it second chance. And... wow!!! We are in love with it now! We can smell citruses and tobacco in it. Its weird though, because notes are not indicating such things :)
Just perfect for swagger man :)

This one has the potential to be overlooked as being 'just another celebrity scent'. It is,however, a little better than most. Rather than just being another variation on the generic citrus based colognes it relies more on spices and woods. It opens with a citric pepper and the other spices work together as a whole to give an impression where none of them dominate. The patchouli is not very prominent to my nose, which is a pity as I feel it would have benefitted by having a little more in it. If you can buy this cheaply it is a worthwhile prospect, but I would not pay 'top dollar' for it, $10 for 50ml seems about right.

I just smelled it today and what i get is a sharp fresh citrus vibe from this where the notes warm it up and give it a definate edge. The nutmeg, pepper and coriander in this fragrance are really designed to give a deeper and more refined citric tone rather than a fresh chemical lemon, bergamot, lime, orange smell prevalent in many fragrances.

In the end, this fragrance fell short due to it's lack of depth and character and in my opinion i think it is a very decent fragrance but nothing unique or head turning and would more likely recommend this to a younger person rather than an older person.

50 cent did an A+ job of appealing his scent to the younger crowd and teenage crowd of people who love his music, but for an older person I really think this will smell "basic" and I honestly have better colognes like hanae mori, montana red, body kouros, terre d hermes, usher on my mind for the next purchase

This is truly surprising..sampled it at the mall cause I read that harry Fremont worked on it. I later bought a 3.4oz at marshalls for around 16 dollars (16.05 to be exact). I cant quite get my head around it. I love the scent, smells good, and is cheap...I know its a celebrity scent, but it is much more complex than the other ones ive smelled (say usher-he, p. diddy, tim mcgraw..etc etc). I know its not much of a review ive given...I guess just sample and see the confusion for yourself.

I don't know why I was so surprised that this was an interesting and very noteworthy scent. I guess I tend to lump "celebrity" scents into the "just trying to make a buck for nothing" category...not too mention that, for whatever reason, this flacon looked very cheap to me. Silly, how we/I judge on looks, but there it is. There is no denying that marketing is very important and can shape impressions.
Power is very earthy out of the bottle, with a fresh cucumbery note very prominent. Very vaguely reminds me of NR for Him, but quickly begins to show its spices. As the drydown continues, it begins to take on very minty qualities on my skin...cool and refreshing. This is not a linear scent, in fact it is more complex than I ever would have imagined.

@ FreddieFingers - I think you are very perceptive to be questioning what season this fragrance would fit best. It clearly has some very cooling qualities and could be worn on hot summer evenings, while at the same time has a wonderful earthy spicy quality that would fit autumn very nicely. In the end, I would say this is very versatile and you should wear this fragrance whenever you feel like it. Wear it well, my friend. It's hard to go wrong with this one.

I definitely noticed that when I read reviews and ran the cursor over avatars, many were wearing this scent. It made me curious, and I have been rewarded for my interest. This is different from any other scent, and there are not many in the Spicy Aromatic category. This fragrance definitely belongs in that category, and I have a new healthy respect for "celebrity" scents. I will try to get a handle on my snap judgements, as they are clearly causing me to miss out on some interesting things.

Another 'nuffin spesh' celeb scent.
Starts with a very powerful fruit, if it's the lemon then it must have een a very sugary lemon because it's not sour at all.
Now that the scent is drying down, the sugar has worn away and the lemon is more lemon...ish...anyway, the moss and musk maybe a lil weak, I get no patchouli, personally, but still nice. The spices don't do much, maybe too subtle.

Slightly reminiscent of Black XS, but only for the sweet-spice. Closer to the same sweet-spice Armani Attitude has.
Overall, the scent's nice enough. Could be above-casual of casually corporate.
I've smelt this kind of thing before, but as mediochre as I find this scent to be, I was still very surprised it wasn't, instead, very generic and cheap, which is about all
I'd expect from celeb gimmick scents.

Got to admit I am really impressed with this celebrity scent. At first when I sprayed this on it reminded me of Rochas Lui and a mix of Paco Robanne XS Black for men.

I can detect a slight almond note in the dry down with berries and spices. Nice and woody and not too peppery. This is a great fragrance and the projection and sillage is fantastic. I purchased a 100ml EDT for £15 which was great value for this scent as it smells very expensive.

Power is not your average celebrity scent. it's dark and masculine. Anyway, here's the four ratings that matter to me. remember this is my opinion.

Scent: 8/10. i usually like aquatics or sweet fragrances but this stuff if really good.

Longevity: 7/10. on my skin at least it lasts 6-10 hours

Projection: 8/10. People notice me when i wear this and you will get complements.

Drydown: 9/10. A great drydown. it is simply one of the best dry downs (in my opinion) that i have smelled.

overall: 8.5/10. give this one a try!

It smells as it's a spicy version of Lanvin L'Homme Sport. It's more herbal, a bit dry, and Just as sweet. I also smell something lemony that just comes and goes like it has mind of its own. I admit the scent is much nicer than expected, and the projection is pretty good. Maybe I will get one when it's on sale or when I am out of Lanvin.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first smelled this on a sample page in Details magazine. Finally, a celeb-scent that smelled different...

This begins with bitter green artemisia, lemon leaves and what I feel must be white pepper, as it is not too spicy. Smmoooth...but sharp enough to get your attention. From there it becomes an blend of herbal corriander and smooth sweet nutmeg with a dark woody feel, like a cool dark forest in autumn. Despite the herbs and spices and the woods, this stays very 'clear' smelling and never gets too pungent. I guess one could compare the end of this to PB, but then again moss, patchouli and musk are quite common in mens scent-bases, and though this is very well executed, it lacks the smooth suede of the PB. The musk is very clean to me, and the moss and patchouli blend into a 'raw' earthy accord that is very intruiging but refined. I agree with another member, in that, this and Zen for men are two of the best fragrances released in 2009...

Sillage: very good
Longevity: above average
Overall: 4.25/5

This is one of those things I sampled and HAD to have, but when I got to Macys, they were out of stock :-( ,so I got Versace Signature. This was actually a blessing in disguise becuase now (6 months after it's release) it is available in 30 ml EDT in _-Mart and TJ has 3.4oz 3 pc giftsets for $24.99(!).

I think some people are too hard on celeb-scents, and everyone has the right to their opinion, but this does deserve a decent sniff...and if it was by Guerlain or Miyake, it would probably have all good reviews, something to think about...

OK LET ME TELL U!!!!!! this smells nice from the SAMPLES but u MUST test it first on your skin because the samples are not really the real thing there just designed to promote this stuff

as for a celeb scent they made a pretty ordinary scent that lacks character or a punch which makes it NOT worthy of purchase

the bottles at dept stores and other dealers are a weaker version than the tester vials you might get as a gift, and the tester vials are nice smelling........and used to promote this gimmick

did i smell the same bottle of cologne at the counter? the power i smelt was pretty weak. it was like a kryptonite-poisoned superman. Plus, the little hint i was able to get gave me the impression that whoever made this just slapped it together. There wasn't any flow to it. As an artist, i've never really took 50 seriously. like jay-z said: "nobody is scared of 50 Cent." but i wanted to keep an open mind. in conclusion: I don't give his scent props either.

Smells unique at first with a blend of berries, artemisia. After an hour or 2 this turns EXACTLY into Polo Blue. Smells damn near identical

Just picked this one up last night at Macys. I didn't even go to buy cologne but I sprayed this one on and 20 min later, I bought it. This is a different smell than any other cologne. Not too much citrus (thank god),snells like dark berries, a hint of lemon(from the leaves), and a base of woods (not spicy at all). I love it bc it is unique, and smells sexy.

I smelled licorish at first. Very astute and bold. However, areal man doesn't need to be that bold in my mind. If so... it should be a graceful bold, not all in your face. I do like Givenchy Xerius Rogue, but this one isn't 1/2 as good.
It was fun smelling it though.

The composition starts with accords of lemon leaves, black pepper and artemisia, a heart of dark wood, coriander and nutmeg and base notes full of patchouli, musk and oak moss. The flacon was created of dark, blurry glass, with a silver, metal stopper inspired by design of 50 Cent's favorite watch – Piguet. This is selling for $68.50 @ Macy's for a 100ml EDT. (I like how he charged 50 cents with the $68 lol

I'm loving this new cologne by 50! I received a sample of this in his cd, and I couldn't put it down once I sniffed the scent. 50 did his thing, when he created this scent to it's fullest! I am a female don't have a boyfriend, but if I did, this would be the one of the gifts I would give to him. Hell, I might just buy a small bottle for myself, and bask in the ambiance of this fragrance all day long! LOL!

Tilemovic, the way you speak, you sound like some kind of drug dealer who makes a nice amount a money a day, destroying the lives of others, so that you can look good. This cologne is a perfect price! Only you would want to pay $250 to make an impression! Who really cares about how high the price of something is, unless your showing off? Oh, i'm sorry! That would be you!

I'm a dissable man and because of my economic situation I cannot afford to buy this excellent cologne for men.....Is absolutely different....with a mix of spicy citrus and patchuli combined.....a delicious result for the man that know the best.

This scent is not one of the carbon copy citrus celeb scents.

It is very dark unique and rich very dense in patchouli and oak moss.

Kudos to him for launching something very diffrent on the market. This is going to be a love it or hate it scent.

Agree with andy
50 Cent reminds me to something strong, masculin sexy and exotic with spicy notes.
The bottle looks like an engine or motor
Yes! First Impression in his MV 'In da club'
