Maurizio Cerizza's Sheltering Jewel
The more I enter the cosmos of women’s fragrances, and the better known are the masterpieces created by perfumer Maurizio Cerizza. After Rubino, which I have already reviewed here in this community, yesterday I discovered another creature built up for the designer Roccobarocco: Gold Queen. Also, in this case, it was love at first sight, after having felt it directly on my skin. The golden capsule that closes a multi-faceted bottle cut like a precious stone enhances the richness of this project. It thrilled me from the first time I smelled it! Sure, you smell the gourmand notes, but not as intense or nauseating. It is also very delicate and sweet, but not annoyingly sweet. The scent is so well composed that the sweetness does not bother at all.

Gold Queen is nothing more than a luxurious floral-greedy composition that envelops me with an explosion of fruity and spicy notes. The fresh and juicy delicacy of the flirty nectarine dominates the initial phase, with a peppery touch, and just a hint of citrus and sweetish mandarin under my nose, more than vaguely sour, almost bitter for a while. A shot of wormwood, with slightly medicinal nuances, prevent the peach from becoming overripe and holds the composition together. I don’t get any notes of figs; I miss the dry, milky tones of fig leaves, fruit or the tree which is quite curious as I immediately recognize its presence. The sparkling pink pepper enhances the lively nuances of the fruity notes. Initially, this may smell very sharp, but it becomes gorgeous, sensual and musky after a while.

The overture intensity is overwhelming at first, but then in some time it settles into a greedy heart, still relatively fresh but not as intense as earlier. The caramel and coffee follow the brew. It reminds me of Shea butter with its mild scent that is earthy or nutty. Not at all too sweet, instead smoky, buttery, and milky. The caramel vibe reminds me of the Dulce de Leche, which is an Argentina’s traditional dessert made over many hours by caramelizing sugar in milk, deeper, richer, and thicker in consistency than caramel. It’s a delicious, gooey caramel sauce, impossible to resist for those with a sweet tooth! Instead, the coffee subdues, not like an Italian espresso we can feel in Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo for instance. The more the scent enters the middle stage, the more powdery it gets, thanks to the dusty yet graceful iris. Instead, I do not catch the fragrant rose, which usually stands out when added as a heart note. Perhaps there is a hint of rose in it, but the powder does not faint.

Gradually a warmth comes in, like how expensive whisky smells after a while! The base is an amber, woody, slightly warm, with a soft finish and just a hint of vanilla. Flowery accords melt in a tender and sensual dry down formed by woods, mainly creamy sandalwood wrapped in heady cashmere wood nuances. The combination of amber and musk intensified by roasted Tonka beans completes the scent, making it lively and exciting. A light undercurrent of vanillic tonka sweetens the juice slightly, just enough to bring a counterpoint to the potentially more jarring effects of a natural blossom liqueur. An ambery, myrrh-like facet also plays with the air and is never apparent immediately. The dry down phase reveals that dry, herbal and woody aspect better. The overall scent creates something very British.

Gold Queen doesn’t smell like any of the oriental or fruity flowers on the market and takes leaps and bounds from your signature date scent. It’s clean and a little floral if you really put your nose into it, but it’s also sweet and soft. There is a disjointed creaminess, almost as if there are two different ideas in the bottle, intertwined: a smooth caramel paired with a slightly jarring, almost chemical peach accord. It smells like the body-care interpretation of the skin, but the scent wears forever—I can still smell it on my skin the morning after applying it. Wearable anytime, whether it is a moment with friends, a busy day at work or a dinner date, the scent will not disappoint you. However, I feel it could be more suitable for evenings and nights out because of its sensual, heady and sexy feel—a cold-weather fragrance, suited for Fall and Winter seasons.

This review bases upon a 100ml (3.4 Fl. oz) I own since September 2020.

Dancing queen
It's funny, but the first moment I saw this new perfume on my usual drugstore shelf I thought of the famous hit by ABBA "Dancing queen": many times I imagined how it could be without smelling it because there wasn't a tester available. Finally, just today I tested this fragrance: it's really "golden", not only outside, but inside too for the caramelized character it owns, perfect in the colder season.
The opening is bright and fruity with a peppery touch, as "happy" as the ABBA's song . Then, you smell a warm cloud of coffee and caramel, extremely cocooning ....I'm already addicted to these gourmand notes!
At the base, a soft but noticeable accord of Woods, cashmere and a sweet amber, not at all medicinal.
I decided: this one will be my new love in this autumn! The longevity is average as well as the sillage. It isn't a strong scent, so it can be worn at the office too and whenever you go to crowded places. The bottle is nice and quite refined : multifaceted and with an elegant golden top.Nice to be shown on the perfumes shelf.
The price too is interesting because not expensive . Everyone can be become a queen for a day wearing this scent!

A fruity-sweet "cocooning" fragrance ,Young and pleasant but not so longlasting . We are far from the old Roccobarocco's masterpieces
