Amouage Gold Man Eau de Parfum Spray is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ruum from A trend-setting scent; try before you buy! As the first men's fragrance by Amouage, Gold Man set the scene for just how revolutionary Amouage's scents would end up being. A completely new theme for a men's scent in the early 80s, Gold Man bears a close resemblance to Chanel No. 5, at least in the opening stages. But do not be fooled by the development of this scent, which is so drastic, it could easily be classed as 3 scents rolled into one. The opening is full aldehydes and florals. Jasmine makes an early appearance whilst slightly veiled by the aldehydes, but the rose that introduces the middle stages takes the scent into a completely different direction. It's almost as if the Chanel No. 5 has been spiked with roses. Some more powdery notes enter at this point, before musk and frankincense join to create an opulent and long-lasting dry down. Older bottles had a nuclear civet note from about the mid point, which contrasted beautifully with the rose. This has been neutered in more recent bottles, but the overall aldehydic, soapy, floral-musky accord is largely still intact. A scent that is sure to turn heads (sometimes for the wrong reasons), it is one that simply must be sampled thoroughly before committing to a bottle. Ladies should not be afraid to wear this one, as it is largely unisex, perhaps leaning more to the feminine side of the spectrum.

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)
