Amouage Gold Man Eau de Parfum Spray is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FlorianK from Not for everyone Prior to reading this review I must ask you all to think differently about men's perfumes. This would most likely be classified as female by most people out there; but in my opinion it is one of the best musky, floral perfumes for men out there. There is nothing to match Gold's opulence and sheer splendour. It is like a spell from long-gone times. But to the perfume itself: Gold opens up with a bright, aldehydic note of jasmine and I definitely smell a good dose of Civet. This develops into a more complex composition by the minute. Soon after spraying the Lilly of the valley and a very slight resinous, sweet (but hardly detectable) accord appear. All of this is carried on a good dose of the Amouage signature not, frankincense . Now if you imagine something smelling like a bunch of flowers in a church, think different. Gold is lively and in its own right sexy. Especially the dry-down is godly. After hours and hours the musk and myrrh take over and a very sensual scent develops. Gold is not easy to wear due to its effects on others. Some will not understand its grandeur and royal appeal whereas others will love it. The longevity is unbelievable. I got more than 12 hours!! Projection is also monstrous so do not ever spray more than twice. For those that prefer more earthly perfumes that are less challenging try Ciel by Amouage (more ordinary men's perfume) or Interlude (very good incense with amber and a little oud)

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheMax from OTT A pungent soapy fragrance that lasts hours, a little stifling even after one spray, if you like this scent a bottle will last months n months of constant use. I rarely use this as you really have to fancy wearing this, not much in the way of individual ingredients stated in the line up comes out on my skin, myrrh Frankenstein and rock rose, hence the monster stifling statement. Amouage have many great scents ......... This one not so much in my opinion. Try this one out on your skin first you may be loved by this fragrance, alas I was not, (it tried to kill me after two sprays)
