Princess Bath
the first association: a bath soap (lush) with many fine gold particles. When you step out of the bath, your skin glistens like an oriental princess.

first most expensive soap: bergamot, pepper, rosemary
then it nestles quietly into the skin, becomes warmer, more transparent, with a bright, shiny fragrance.
a little plush now and quickly evaporated.

10 minutes later a lukewarm, subtly spicy water.

after another 10 minutes nothing more there.

lasts less than a lottery win and actually only smells clean. No reason to kill, really not

Solid "Gold"....
Gold opens with a brief splash of bergamot combining with gentle black pepper and dulled mandarin orange before transitioning to its heart. As the composition moves to its early heart, fine floral jasmine and slightly sweet benzoin join a significant thickening, smooth, suede-like leathery castoreum and labdanum tandem with hints of the earlier dulled mandarin orange now remaining in support. During the late dry-down, woody vetiver enters the mix, with the composition also adding slightly powdery vanilla to remnants of the suede-like castoreum and mildly sweet benzoin through the finish. Projection is average, but longevity is outstanding at over 20 hours on skin.

Gold is a composition created by a perfumer I have had gobs of problems with in the past to put it mildly. It goes without saying that when I heard Antoine Lie was behind the composition that I was highly confident I would dislike it, even scared to *try* it... I am still somewhat in shock as I write this, but can safely say that Gold is the best thing I have sniffed from Lie, and certainly different from his usual style. In truth, while the perfume may be a tad polarizing, the superb mix of the floral jasmine with the suede-like accord paired with the woody vetiver and slightly sweet elements all play perfectly against one another and the result impresses more and more over time. After multiple wearings I now can say I love the perfume and have bought a bottle. The bottom line is the $190 per 17.5ml bottle Gold is quite a positive surprise from perfumer Antoine Lie, earning an "Excellent" to "Outstanding" 4 to 4.5 stars rating out of 5 and a strong recommendation (even to people like me who usually don't care for Mr. Lie's past work).
