Gold Star, or Fool's Gold?...
Or Star opens with an orange bergamot and slightly green peppery floral freesia before gradually transitioning to its heart. As the composition reaches its early heart the bergamot fades, leaving the freesia to pair with supporting jasmine, synthetic smelling musky woods, patchouli, and a sweet tonka bean and slightly powdery vanilla accord rising from the base. During the late dry-down the florals vacate the composition as traces of the synthetic woody musk remain to meld with the vanilla and tonka bean combo through the finish. Projection is above average, as is longevity at 9-10 hours on skin.

Or Star was a blind buy that came with super-high expectations after its sister 2014 (re)release, Or Black, highly impressed. I am sad to say that Or Star is not going to receive any gold stars in this review. On the contrary, the composition turned out to be incredibly disappointing from the get-go featuring a very sweet synthetic bent that while not entirely unpleasant is far from alluring. The unending base driven sweetness mixing with its cashmeran-derived patchouli infused faux musky woods in the key heart accord is particularly hard to endure. Things don't improve much in the finish either as the cashmeran while never overpowering (to the perfumer's credit) remains, and calls undue attention to the corner cutting (and dare one say cost cutting) the composition utilizes throughout. The bottom line is the 69 Euro per 100ml bottle Gold Star is nothing more than fool's gold by the same company that released the outstanding Or Black, earning it a "below average" 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5 and a mild "avoid" recommendation.
