The Golden Rule
Take an old rotting wooden log. Set it to dry near a fireplace. Hollow it out, fill with dry dirt, whole vanilla beans, cinnamon bark and warm spices. Hide the log in the throne room of a sultan, let years of frankincense and sweet myrrh suffuse the wood. Heat the log over a fire and spoon some whipped cream on top.
Now step back and smell it as a complete scent: this is 24 Gold.

It wasn't love at first sniff, however. At first I worried that I'd received a dud batch or perhaps the oud note was not nearly what I expected. But I gave it time, first resigned to a bad blind buy, then cautiously optimistic, then enraptured! Gold is a good name for it, fitting in both hue and value; 24 Gold is one of few fragrances I have considered stocking up on just in case they decide to discontinue it, gold ingots stashed away from prying eyes.

It's not as much of a sillage monster on me as some others have described, I would actually prefer it to be stronger. It fares better sprayed on clothing but I enjoy it more when activated by body heat, so there's a trade-off. I do wish the bottle was a little transparent as due to the weight of it and the opaque metallic coating it is difficult to judge the level of perfume inside.

On a more personal note, I enjoy washing my hair with my coconut and Marrakesh oil conditioner and then liberally applying 24 Gold. Generally I avoid mixing perfumed products but they mesh together well. It encourages confidence and sensuality... I feel warm and mysterious, a desert priestess making libation.

Harvest for the Gold
Ok guys, here is my own story, just today 17:10PM with 24 Gold.

15:45 PM - I logged out from work and will head to post office to check on my perfume orders. My male co-worker that is logging out by 16:00pm ask me if I want a lift going home. I said sure then we can meet some place outside office after I checked my p.o. box. Deal! He said.

15:50 PM - I arrived at Post Office, heading to my box then went to the counter to claim. Postman gave me the box, I read the sender, expecting to get the Agent Provocateur or Le Dandy edt &/or edp.
But the seller was from Amazon which means, this is 24 Gold.

I opened the package, and saw the gold and black classy 24 Gold and checked the authenticity, serial no. etc. It all match, an assurance of authentic purchase. Now my last test would be, to spray it. Gold cap was great, easy and tight at the same time. I tried to spray once, no perfume came out, another, still nothing. Then I am solved that this is the real deal.

15:57 - 1 spray to back hand. Oh sweet first smell, reminded me of Paco Rabanne Ultra Red and 1 Million. Very vanilla, creamy top, a little powdery but very pleasant, could be guaiac wood but definitely no oud, yet. Powerful projection.

Three minutes after oud is slowly manifesting, subtle and very pleasing equally combining with jasmine which astonished my nose, making me convinced that this is wonderful indeed. After 10 minutes, its sweetness lessen and oud/floral combo much detected now. Such a beautiful scent that is sensual, well blended, transforming and very oriental but not cloying.

16:10 - The projection outside the post office is outstanding. The cold winds enhanced the fragrance. I was walking to meet my co-worker at the pharmacy, to ride with him and with just a spray on my back hand, the scent is a massive cloak in a winter afternoon.
Just amazing to experience it.

16:15 - I hopped in to his car and whoa, he smelled it already and told me what scent was that? It is strong but it smells very good. So I told him the brand and he wants to see the bottle and he smelled the sprayer and said, it is different from how it smells on me, different but very good aroma. He asked me where I bought it coz it is the first time he heard about this perfume.

So that was it, my actual experience with 24 Gold that ended with an immediate compliment.

My two cents: I felt the presence of oud, floral, balmy, vanilla, woods, some spices and powdery effect. But my over all take is that this a beautiful perfume that will surely earn compliment especially to women. It is really powerful but never cloying. It has the qualities of a well refined, unique, sensual and classy perfume that has some slight resemblance here and there with other known perfumes (Ultrared, 1Million, Tobacco Vanille, Armani Code, Fantasy) but able to hold the oud that pops in and out. This is a hell of a thrill ride that is worth its price. I can say it will have a following even for those who are into niche perfumes. This is a blind buy for me but a successful one, With a luxurious fragrance & a high class bottle & box, my precious...

K.O. in the 1st round
Don't want to lose so many words others have already described the fragrance in detail.

Smells for me actually only like penetrating synthetic vanilla, that it becomes only bad of it. You can see the oud a little bit in the background, but you don't notice it because the vanilla has knocked out the oud already in the first round.

Durability was not to be expected otherwise very good, would have done well to reduce them a bit.

Not only does he share the flacon's design with 1 million but also its perverse dirty sweetness.

An instant hit!
24 Gold by ScentStory is one of those fragrances that proves that in this industry, as far as the consumer is concerned... all that matters is the juice inside! In other words "never judge a book by it's cover", and that really sums it all for this one! People thought that "how could a fragrance inspired by a TV show be any good?". Wow! How everyone was pleasantly surprised! Again, this really shows how much we value "brands" and "big names"... I mean if this was put in an exclusive flacon and released by a huge French fashion house (or by someone like Tom Ford) then we would be all over it! But instead it comes from a small company from the middle east and inspired by a TV show! Who would've thought it? Again it just shows you how quick all of us are to judge a book by it's cover!

So how does it smell? Well it is primarily an amber based fragrance (and a sweet one at that)! You have a combination between an amber softened by vanilla and musk (and also by the soft & creamy "woody" notes here like sandalwood, guaiac wood and oud - the last one in small quantities). I do actually detect the oud, but it's faint, and it doesn't overpower the fragrance in any way as the main notes of amber and vanilla dominate the scent.

Bottom line: This is a perfect scent for so many different occasions! I see it mainly as a cold weather scent, but if you spray very light it could be used for summer nights. It is (well) worth the money, which is very cheap for this level of quality in a fragrance... and it even puts some well established so-called "designers" to shame, by offering a borderline niche scent at half the price of a designer perfume! I would recommend this to people who like sweet amber or vanilla perfumes, with a woody background. It can be used casually, but I think this works best when you are out to "impress" in a formal setting (like a restaurant or high class bar), or an expensive banquet or something. If you can't test, and you like what I have just described, then don't be afraid to buy it. It is a sweet, woody, almost musky smell. Very warm and sensual. Especially good for winter and colder seasons. If you can't try it, buy it!

Simple, pleasant snug fit
At first you can perceive a fine rosy note, which brings with it a very subtle smoky hint and is due to the guaiac wood.

At the same time, a delicate, sweet, light floral note can be perceived, which melts into a whole with the guaiac wood and I can very well imagine that through the interaction with the jasmine a sweet raspberry can be perceived, but that it disappears completely the closer I smell to my wrist, but I can also be completely wrong and indeed raspberry was used in the head note.

Completely in the background and rather only on the skin findable, is a dark, very deep and densely working woody note noticeable, which one can absolutely attribute to the Oud.

Additionally I would like to comment on the Sillage right at the beginning, instead of always at the end of my comment as usual.

24 Gold must be carried absolutely correctly, because on my wrist the Sillage moves 3 hours with Ach and noise on a good half arm length, if one carries it however correctly, the Sillage is conceived in the first 2 hours in such a way that one is very clearly noticed at the 1.5 meters and then oscillates 2.5 hours on a very clearly perceptible whole arm length, before it reduces itself up to the discharge of the smell in quiet steps
The top note is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

A very fine bitter and aromatic sweet note is now perceptible and comes from aniseed.

The anise is accompanied by a light spicy and subtle creamy note, which ensures that the fragrance simply appears pleasantly cuddly and comes from the sandalwood.

These two notes are enveloped in a soft woody nuance, which gives the fragrance a beautiful accentuated supple hint and is due to the cedar wood.

The heart note is perceptible on my skin for 4.5 hours before the base asserts itself.

A delicate, smooth, lovely powdery note blends with a beautiful sweet spicy note to a wonderful, light gourmand cuddly aura, which is accompanied by a very delicate sweet flowery nuance and comes from Madagascar - vanilla in combination with amber and ylang - ylang.

24 Gold is a great companion in the autumn and winter months for women and men over 25 who are looking for a sweet, rosy, floral, woody, tart, aromatic, spicy, creamy, floral and gourmand scent to simply wrap themselves in a pleasant cuddly aura.

In total the fragrance lasts 9 hours on my skin.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Mydarkflower" for the rehearsal.

Sweet, creamy, spicy and woody scent. The oud is slightly smoky and medicinal, the vanilla is gourmand. Ambery, cozy and alluring.

If it wasn't for the oud, this would be an exceptional amber fragrance. I kept going back and forth, but in the end decided it was a no-go.

Creamy sandalwood drowned in vanilla custard and sprinkled with the odd wood shaving.
