A Gentleman’s Musky (Dis)Illusion.
While looking for a fragrance that I wanted on Fragrance Net, I also filled the cart with fragrances that receive a positive reception from consumers who purchased it.

I tried out Fujiyama Gentleman, a fragrance from the 1990s that was a clone of Jean Paul Gaultier’s Le Male.

Keep in mind that I do not compare a clone to the original in a review. Instead, I will determine whether the clone can stand on its own as a reliable fragrance.

----

The first thing that comes to mind is that I like the bottle, which is a gradient with a unique art déco-like design reminiscent of older skyscrapers in New York City, such as the Chrysler Building. If I did not know better, I would not think that the fragrance cost less than 20.00 USD.

The opening smells great, as Gentleman starts with a soft and powdery violet that blends with the calming freshness of lavender with a light touch of vanilla.

As the opening fades, the scent becomes very different. A heavy cloud of white musk becomes the dominant scent for most of the heart note.

Afterward, the musk fades, and what remains is a base note that is significantly calmer and smooth vanilla and cinnamon mixture with a light musk.

I like the open and base notes, and the fragrance overall adds to the feeling of a classic era where men dressed sharply on a night out and showed chivalry to everyone.

However, I am not a fan of the heart note because of the heavy white musk. I have never been a fan of white musk as it becomes cloying to my nose.

That said, while it is not for me, individuals who love musk, and like classic smelling fragrances, it will not disappoint you at all. The fragrance smells like something that came from the post-WWII era or the late 1970s when musk became more prominent.

Finally, Gentleman as a name may show that the fragrance is masculine, but the scent is unisex. A woman can wear this with zero problems.

----

In terms of performance, Gentleman is a potent fragrance that performs beyond expectations.

The sillage and projection have a moderate range. Gentleman may light up a room upon entry, but it is a head-turner. Anyone passing by or staying nearby will notice the scent.

In terms of longevity, the fragrance lasted about eight hours on my skin, which goes beyond expectations for an Eau de Toilette. Gentleman can hold the line for an entire day, or an entire evening without a respray.

----

In terms of social scenarios, do not expect Gentleman to be a daily scent that pulls compliments with little thought or effort. This is a highly situational fragrance.

I do not recommend Gentleman as an office, or summer scent, as musk can become cloying. In addition, using Gentleman as a gym or active scent is a crime against humanity; the musk makes body odor more unpleasant and worsens the cloying effect.

I also cannot recommend it as a date night fragrance until you know your significant other likes musk as a fragrance note! Absolutely leave it at home on a first date.

Then again, it probably should be at home for different reasons. If a person confirms that a date or significant other likes the fragrance, then it becomes a fantastic date night fragrance. It will truly shine brightly if the date night involves a carnal and passionate encounter.

Gentleman is also a fantastic choice for anyone looking to stand apart from modern fragrances. It does the best work as an evening scent and is a solid choice during the winter when it breaks through the cold.

Also, while the fragrance has a classic feel, anyone of any age can pull it off in the right situation. (I will reiterate, please do not use this in a gym or office!)

----

Overall, if I somehow did not make it clear by this point, I am not a fan of Gentleman because I am not a fan of the white musk that dominates during the heart note.

However, I can also see the other side. There are people who like musk as a primary note. This fragrance sings to their beat.

If someone wants a unique fragrance for special nights with their significant other, a fragrance with excellent performance, or a fragrance that is drastically different from modern fragrances, Gentleman is an absolute steal.

Good alternative to JPG Le Male
I've purchased this fragrance for around 8 Euro. This fragrance is very similar to JPG Le Male, the opening is very synthetic (not my taste ).

The longevity is average on me 6-8 hour's. The bottle looks great.

The overall opinion is that if you wish a cheap alternative to JPG Le Male, this can be for you.
Or you can check Milton Lloyd - Bondage (4-5 euro for 50 ml) and also Mustang - Performance (around 10 Euro for 100 ml)

Gentleman=JPG Le Male
SOTD: Fujiyama Gentleman: As of 12/24/18

Purchased this at TJ Maxx over a month ago, for $9.99 is a great value, for a clone of Le Male. To my nose I scent the vanilla, cinnamon, anise and lavender, if you don't want to spend a Le Male price grab Gentleman by Fujiyama.

Scent: 6.5/10
Value: 9/10
Presentation: 7/10
Performance/Longevity: 8/10: on my lasted for 8-10+ hrs
Overall: 7/10
