Dressed in Gold
Bold, fresh, luxurious and sensual, is a versatile masculine leather fragrance for today's renaissance man, the rare example of a scent equally comfortable on the beach, at the bar, or in the boardroom. Jump-started with an electric crackle of citrus and spice set against a smooth, compelling lavender, Black Gold soon develops a rich floral heart, kept masculine with the refreshing saltiness of oceanic notes and a perfectly balanced patchouli. And as it dries further, the leather- not too smoky, nor too soft, but with a quiet, confident ruggedness- takes control, lingering for untold hours at just the right volume to carry you from morning to evening, no matter the setting. A signature scent must balance versatility, sophistication, and that so-hard-to-define Wow Factor that can turn heads and make a special someone weak in the knees. After smelling Black Gold, we get the feeling more than a few modern men have just found a signature.

Gold like hidden Treasures
Now I understand the "Gold" in the name - it literally tells you what a treasure it is

Up first I have to say you have to smell it by yourself, its just so unique. Nevertheless let me give it a try describing it...
In the opening you get some classical fresh fougere vibes. Lavender, a touch of violet and citrus in the back - Chopard Heaven or Joop Nightflight is the closest I can imagine of
Further into the scent you get fruity notes flickering trough, more on the tropical side... maybe banana? More candied sugary than ripe authentic banana. If you smelled Calvin Klein Escape you maybe know what I am talking about.
It always hold a perfect balance between fresh, sweet and fruity. The marine notes listed is more of a ambergris like aroma that helps it keep a modern appeal.
The rose is not really detectable by its own but gives it a powdery texture, similar to how its done in Aoud Blue Notes - actually you can detect quite a bit of similarities between the 2 but I can't really tell where they are coming from, just the overall feel
In the drydown you get a masculine and clean vetiver/ blond woody combination with the tiniest touch of cold smoke.
For me its an all year round scent but it especially shines in the colder ways where it almost developes a eucalyptus mintiness in the air.

Its quite a rare occurrence that you encounter a unique fougere that is modern, long lasting, mass appealing, not dated, has a absolutely stunning bottle and is affordable.

This is all you can expect from a blind buy - it is one of these treasures I found throughout my fragrance journey that keeps me exploring the wast ocean of undiscovered gems!

Gold at its best!
My honest opinion is that this fragrance is very beautifully composed, it has everything a fragrance of this caliber needs. Sharpness,sweetness,depth and so on. After 1.5 hours on skin, this transforms into something sexy masculine stuff, i am very happy i Got this.
Although i Can feel that it is very potent, it does not last more than 6 hours on me.
But i generally have problems with perfumes. So i dont Think it is the scents fault, because like i Said: it is POTENT ! I sprayed 2 sprays on neck and 2 on T-shirt and i could smell it a lot for 1,5 hour. My wife could definitely also smell it 4-5 feet away .
Overall, i give this 8/10.
Very Nice.

Creamy, woody & floral but also dark, leathery & animalic. My kind of frag. I recommend tag on it. A mix of Princess Lea & Darth Vader.

Nice aromatic. A little bit daring in the first 15 minutes but it starts to settle down into a nice creamy woodsy and floral scent.

Citrus and floral opening bomb (for me lots of lavender) drys to a woody floral scent. Nice but reminds me of other manceras. Good stuff.

One of the most powerful perfumes I have ever experienced. A good combination of heavy animalic parts and cute floral scents.

This can be looked up as a girlie oud (Feminine "energetic" Nepalese Oud) or as a dark Unisex. I prefer the later description.
