Golden sparkle(r)s
Gold is not glittering, but shimmering with an understated elegance, both in design and its content.
The warm, almost effervescent scent evokes a certain feeling of festiveness - be it New Year's Eve or any other celebration which finds a certain excitement in the air, anticipating the unknown. The opening citrus turns on the lights and pink pepper adds the sparkles. The flowers are tastefully placed in the background to add to the splendour; they harmonise well into the whole picture without claiming too much attention. The minimum of sweetness comes from fruit and flowers, and the overall composition feels weightless - lucent and airy, thanks to the lack of the usually omnipresent cast like vanilla, musk or synthetic woods that would pull it down to the ground.
After the quite enchanting introduction, vetiver with a slightly bitter, boozy note shows up with a facet I call the 'shaving cream', turning the whole into a sweetened, spicy scent that I rather would smell on a man. Unfortunately, it remains this way for the longest part until reduced to a faint amber sweetness in the sixth hour.

Gold ultimately did not work on my skin which tends to bring out the base notes fast and most, but it retained its initial beauty when worn by another person.
While I agree about its resemblance to other famous fragrances with a spicy, citrus-patchouli combination, I find this Cabotine flanker of a more subtle and somewhat relaxed nature, the latter characteristics true to the essence of the original Cabotine. Discontinued and the largest bottle available for the price of two one-way tickets. I recommend trying if you like fragrances of the above-mentioned type.

Long-lasting floral oriental in the style of "Coco Mademoiselle"
Excellent staying-power, fantastic sillage, a very low price coupled with an attractive vessel and a brand I used to love (thinking of Cabochard or Cabaret)- yet I rated this fragrance with 50%. Why? It's a knock-off, a floral oriental which smells like a cross between Chanel's "Coco Mademoiselle EdT" and Yves Saint Laurent's "Elle". Since there are many gals and guys out there who LOVE "Coco Mademoiselle" and/or "Elle", I can only recommend you test "Cabotine Gold" as long as it is still available. I paid 7 Euros for my 100 ml bottle. There are many "Coco Mademoiselle" - copies which smell much worse, don't last and come in awfully ugly vessels. This said - why has the house of GRES gone down the drain? Since the release of "Cabaret" in 2003, they have stopped producing anything outstanding.

Smells more expensive and like a mix of J'adore+CM in the opening. Vetiver plays the dreaded shavingcream on me, otherwise an overlooked gem+3
