This Fragrance Smells Like…
Perfumer Andrea Casotti creates a warm scent where rich spices meet a layering of woody tones. Golden Powder opens with top notes of nutmeg and cinnamon that are warm and inviting, remaining prominent as the fragrance dries down to the finished cacophony of warmth. The fragrance heart enhances the initial spices, adding in layers of wood: sandalwood, guaiac wood and cedarwood for an earthy feel. The base introduces the perfect pairing of vanilla and Burma oud, a rising warmth that creates depth and a layer of sweetness that uplifts the entire scent. Musk and tobacco blossom feel almost smoky though the labdanum twists the base to have more of a spicy ambery feeling overall, which is completed by the coumarin as the final layer of warm spice. The woody elements feel rich without overpowering the craftsmanship of spices layered throughout the scent.
