Join the Club Collection includes ten perfumes representing ten different kind of virtual clubs. Fatal Charme is about elegance, glamour and fashion; Ivory Route is an adventure and travelling club; Marquee represents a theater club; Kind of Blue is all about jazz; 40 knots is a yachts club; Ascot Moon is a horse club; Birdie is for golf lovers; Comandante is for fine cigar lovers; Shunkoin is for meditation and More than Words captures the world of writers and poets.

The ingredients of these fragrances are to be kept a secret. However, each fragrance will have its identification card with a number which one could use to join the real club of the owners of these perfumes. That’s how the concept goes from virtual clubs to forming a real one.

The bottles of the fragrances are made out of authentic blue glass; not the tinted kind but the glass of which the production is limited and are very rare. Kind of Blue was launched in 2012.

Kind of Blue Fragrance Reviews

It’s a Xerjoff so the blend quality's there and this has more personality than the line usually delivers. It’s a very floral scent with touches of jasmine over a semi-oriental base and a prominent, narcotic narcissus center stage. The narcissus is the most fascinating part of it because it really does smell like they managed to synthesize the real thing quite well — and narcissus smells amazing. A good amount of character to this one, but it doesn’t offer much more than a natural-smelling floral with a creamy, C-11 style base. Exotic, rich, alluring, it reminds me a little of Tom Ford’s Shanghai Lily only way more amped up. One of the better Xerjoff’s to my nose.

This could be an interesting perfume since its inspiration club is a Blues one. But, i don't see any references to the golden age of Bluess, but maybe to the 80's blues era since this fragrance has typical shape of creations from this time. Unfortunately, this is not a well made shape, it seems the imitation of something classic on a tight budget project. Kind of Blue opens with a strong aldehidc aroma, one of those that makes of think of candles, and then quickly turn into a combination, roses, tuberoses and a background of strawberries/berries. This combination makes me think that it might have beta damascone, that was very used during the eighties and has all those nuances. I don't see any flower absolute here, the tuberose and rose accord doesn't hide at all their synthetic side (not a problem if it was well worked). Strangely, after this intense floral phase the fragrance disappear on skin after 2 hours. I don't know what goes here, but certainly i cannot smel.If this is the representation of blues club, certainly is not one on its glory days.

The opening of Kind of Blue is intriguing, a well-executed dense floral accord with a gloomy vibe and a dry-gourmand underlying accord of coffee-like notes, tonka, amber, benzoin, with a soapy-aldehydes roundness and a narcotic, rich heart stuffed with high-quality narcissus notes. I also detect a hint of rose and a subtle base creaminess which may be due to ylang or white musks. A microscopic hint of fruits. Thick and "overwhelming" at first, thanks to the majestic narcotic power of narcissus, which the softens and sweetens as minutes pass. After about a couple of hours it evolves on a powdery-aldehydes accord with still an "edible" side (the accord is quite similar to Xerjoff' Shunkoin, that sort of coconut-tonka-nuts mix, quite light here but still detectable). Overall I find this a well-made fragrance with a lot of interesting nuances and a general "consistency", with a peculiar Oriental-exotic vibe, not in the fruity sense, but rather of a sort of sacred mysticism, and more specifically, of buildings and statues. The powdery side has a in fact a slight "chalky" note which makes me think of temples and sacred white statues buried among branches, floral bushes and grassy landscapes. Finally there is also a nice, azure salty breeze, which may be a side-note of aldehydes, however it gives quite a nice-fitting "aeriality" and dimensionality to the scent, contributing in creating the evocative and quite clear "landscape" I referred above. The drydown is pleasant and persistent, a really elegant floral-aldehydes accord on a mellow, velvety powdery sheet, cozy and discreet. Not a masterpiece to be honest, but surely a great distinctive scent.

For me, it smelled like an old soap. Nothing I could enjoy. I couldn't even recognise that supposed high quality of ingredients that Xerjoff says they use. For me it smelled kinda cheap.

Very dissappointed with this house so far.

First time you heard jazz you either fall in love with, or hate it forever. I'm sure in only one thing: it will never leave you indifferent. That is why King of Blue Jazz Club doesn't have a bright advertising and not everyone will be able to show you the way to. But this is its true exclusivity, it seems to be open to everyone, but at the same time it's accessible only for a few connoisseurs of real art. King of Blue is not just a fragrance, but a blend of music, cigars, brandy and freedom. The ability to improvise, to not stuck on what is good and what is bad, that is accepted in society and culture, and that is not acceptable - it's the feeling that gives you a sense of freedom to be yourself. This feeling is your real club card which opens the doors of King of Blue Jazz Club.

Quando ascolti jazz per la prima volta, lo adori o lo odi per sempre. Di una sola cosa sono certo: jazz non ti lascerà indifferente. Ecco perché Jazz Club King of Blue non ha nessun cartello luminoso sopra la sua entrata e non tutti passanti saranno in grado di indicarci la strada. Ma questa è la sua vera esclusività, sembrare di essere aperto a tutti, ma allo stesso tempo di essere accessibile solo per pochi intenditori d'arte. King of Blue non è un solito profumo, ma una miscela di musica, sigari, brandy e la libertà. La capacità di improvvisare, di non avere dei dubbi su ciò che è bene e ciò che è male, il coraggio di non essere accettati dalla società. È una miscela delle sensazioni che ti portano un senso di libertà di essere te stesso. Questo sentimento è la tua chiave che ti aprirà le porte del esclusivo King of Blue Jazz Club.
