Aroma chemists find plum-violet amber blue gold. But how are perfume names created?
If violets are considered to be the little man's roses, plums can be seen as the down-to-earth sisters of the more ethereal and sensitive peaches. If you swallow that and read on, we'd like to explain 'The Scent of Gold' as a noble Italian gourmand answer to Mitsouko. Their filigree Art Nouveau flacon has been transformed into a solid metal container, the delicate moss peach into a powerful cinnamon-violet plum, and the finely woven Guerlain base into a stable, gourmand amber vanilla. Comparisons are helpful. They profile any objects and sensory impressions better than solo portraits. But this comparison was far-fetched (don't have any alternative plums in the house or brain...).

We are dealing here with a sweet, but reasonably well-articulated plum-violet & wood scent. The top notes and heart notes are slightly synthetic and therefore rather nice than beautiful. But its base is a warm, creamy tobacco-patchouli-amber vanilla. Which makes this fragrance altogether a (even for non-sugar spoiled perfumes) well wearable one. This Scent of Gold is therefore a possible, better substitute for Empörio Armanis '(Not) Stronger with you'; for that unfortunately often encountered, contourless, flabby sweetness
So, now the children are in bed, driven out of the text by sweet-bashing and awkward phrasing. So let's get to the exciting question for advanced and insiders: How do the new perfumes actually get their names? We sometimes ask ourselves this question. And one wonders: Do the manufacturers throw dice? Do they employ house poets? Do they use hallucinogenic drugs?

With new brands, it was often enough to add the name of the brand plus a gender: e.g. Horst pour Homme, or Woglinde Women. Untimely, the manufacturers still limit themselves to 2 genders, whereas 57 of them are now in circulation. We expect to see some innovative gender niche names here in the coming years (Rainer Maria for those converted from X to Y, Kim-Leo for undecided, etc.).

But for now to the state of affairs and the results of our research on the secret files (behind closed curtains) before the bottle baptisms. How do names like this one come about? The smell of gold? Is that when the inflation-phobic perfumer spent weeks sniffing at his gold bars in the cellar and then composed this plum-cinnamon-violet amber orgy? No. It wasn't like that!
If you do research in Rüsselsheim in the well-known sanatorium for deserving perfumers or those exhausted by nose-burnthrough, or if you occasionally listen in the Fragrances-Bar in Berlin's Ritz-Carlton at the regulars' table of highly paid perfume creators, what the creators of the perfumes tell about fragrance baptisms, you will learn - amazing things. Monstrous. You'd never guess it without research
Fragrance composers prefer to name their works after perfume authors
Because their texts are - logical! - their home cooking, a must read for all perfumers. Comments, statements and blogs, even the most minimal aperture nuances and flacon positioning of the photographers, adore and fear the perfume creators. Parfumo words carry weight here! Punctuation mistakes or photo colour nuances decide about fame and money or EdeKa (end of career). That's why perfumers often want to name their freshly hedged, nameless babies after the most important perfumo/a/s. The history of these successful and unsuccessful dedications is long; here are just tiny episodes from it.

When Caron planned her second men's fragrance as a classic, it was soon clear that it could only be named after our two-legged fragrance encyclopaedia with the face of Hölderlin, Yatagan. The well-deserved Turandot is the dedicatee of several fragrances. Often, however, according to the never-ending complaints in Rüsselsheim and the Fragrances Bar, planned dedications fail. Leimbacher and Pudelbonzo should have been dedicated dozens of fragrances; the same applies to the mischievous Hasi and the neroli and linguistic genius Fittleworth. But for years now, the marketing people have always intervened and prevented these more than deserved name donations with their veto: too bulky. Allegedly not marketable for the people of the stammers and moans.

FvSpee, grandmaster of long commentary and fine nuances, has - nobody knew how until now - become the namesake of a leading detergent brand in the East. There is no doubt that these extremely useful products smell very decent and solid. But it is still unexplored, which marketing genius was able to make the old maxim of the eastern economy, 'overtaking without catching up' come true for once. Guerlain like Marly, monastery water manufacturers and niche perfumers came too late with their christening wishes. The name was already taken. Since FvSpee, with its own Christian humility, is not vain enough to sing the praises of the millions of products bearing his name in detail here, we have the desideratum of olfactory research.

Of course, according to our research, the most considered dedicatee is our dear colleague Gold. Her fame outshines everything. Hardly any perfume house has yet decided not to dedicate a tribute to her. Hardly a well-assorted perfume cabinet is not at the same time a shrine to her homage. Parfumo soon boasts 1000 fragrances that carry her name around the world. These statistics (not trophies or perfumo points) show what counts in the end. Speaking with Hölderlin's 'souvenir': "But what remains, donate bottle baptisms".

I like to wear Trussardo's 'Scent of Gold' occasionally (in weather conditions up to 25.3°C) - and, as befits the occasion, I always think of the meritorious writing and educational work that the honored dedicatee has been doing for years (but also many others here, who for many reasons were not considered by the perfume creators and distributors by name).

By the way, I would have suspected that Gold personally (who of course can't and doesn't want to accept the hundreds of dedication requests ALL) finds this scent a bit too sweet and too synthetic. That, as everyone knows, she prefers roses to violets. But as I descended to the deepest statement about 'Scent of Gold' during my research on the fragrance and the mysterious naming process, I found Gold's early statement about the fragrance at the bottom of this page, in the deepest mine gallery. Which we are happy to promote to the top again here:
"Patchouli, cinnamon, plums, lots of amber vanilla, not new, but harmonious, soft, cuddly, enveloping. My candidate for the winter?"

Finally, the big question remains: What did the dear gold wear in the winter of 2019 and 2020? Was the candidate Trussardi - rated an astonishing 8.5 in her primaries - elected (often)?

Edit: Inquiries now want to know if 'Mouchoir de Monsieur' is a dedication of one of his favourite houses to Monsieur Teste's handkerchief. No, he's not that old yet. Some younger dedicatory fragrances ('Bravo Monsieur' by Ganso, or 'Monsieur Dada 18' by the Krigler house, and also 'Monsieur le Prince Elegant' by Princesse Marina de Bourbon) can be understood as dedication requests. Because of other criticism and homage obligations I have not yet come to taste these dedication waters. And I ask myself at the princess, if behind it is the oldest high nobility or a fraudulent Bourbon-Whisky..

The Tango of Gold and Fahrenheit
Degrees Fahrenheit, a unit of temperature, and gold, a chemical element, fused together to form a bottle? Can't it work? Yes, it is! It's possible!
Scent of Gold specifies the gold tone as the body. Inside the gold body there are about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. When leaving the protective flacon, it even gets more, because there the heart of the fragrance is allowed to beat, its soul is allowed to fly and the mind is allowed to be exposed.

With the first spray, it's off to the dance floor. With a single stroke the light goes out and a single beam of light from the ceiling floods a conical aisle into the darkness. Two figures seem to be trapped in it.
The bergamot-like, slightly herbaceous scent cloud of hot Fahrenheit floats lightly and semi-transparently above the dance floor, fanning air with a seductive look to appearances as it slowly transforms into feminine contours. Meanwhile the atmosphere is already changing. A powerful yet finely tuned cinnamon cloud of it blows into the audience's face. Some people still perceive a touch of ripe plums in it. This constellation will take over, seduce longings and awaken hidden feelings.
The first bars of a modern remixed tango wrap the room in exciting, atmospheric sounds. Fahrenheit, lasciviously moving in the music, is now completely morphed and curvaceously built, densely covered with scent molecules and ready to surrender to the gold in the dance. Breitschultrig approaches Gold and pulls Fahrenheit jerkily to the opening embrace. Both look deep into each other's eyes. Fahrenheit sprays jasmine and violet into their mists of life, enveloping the stately contours of gold. He counters with an energetic movement of his head, which in turn, and in the following weighing step, releases tobacco. Everything instantly melts into a kind of elixir that befuddles and numbs. Full of energy, the two bodies flow into the tempo-setting music as they merge into the promenade, side by side, vibrating with the air and with passion in their eyes. In the intoxication of the enthusiastic applause of the enthralled audience, Fahrenheit and Gold perform their tension-filled turns, their seemingly fought-out battles and the subsequent reconciliations. Fahrenheit knows about their charms and repeatedly brushes Gold's angular contours with their curved veils of scent. Honey-golden pearls form on Gold's forehead, giving off a resinous, balsamic nuance to the already dense and shimmering air. To the rhythm of the modern stylized accordion sounds, the couple rotates, interrupts and continues. Always illuminated by the glistening cone of light that follows them at every turn and never misses any of their impulses. Behind the serious expressions and under hot veils and seemingly cool glass the passion of the two dancers bubbles. With every step they take, their longing for their counterpart grows, their desire is celebrated breast to breast and eye to eye. The veils and legs of Fahrenheit prance around the thighs of gold, go between them or wrap around them, always accompanied by smooth hip movements. The hall is boiling, the air is burning and the floor on which we dance glows. The closer the two of them come, the more Gold perceives a hidden scent of Fahrenheit, which he had not yet noticed until then. Their excitement is released by patchouli, which lends the dense cloud of scent from before a very special sensual and elegant note. A kind of rearing up of the fragrance before it reaches its most beautiful point and then comes to an end.
One last powerful turn!
Then..... big nothing!
The played instruments fall silent immediately. Fahrenheit lies bent back in Gold's left arm. With his right arm he holds her raised leg at his side. For a moment time seems to stand still, while the two of them breathe exhaustedly but still remain in their final figure.
Under the frenetic applause of the audience, which has long since jumped up from its chairs and is completely beside itself, they slowly release their position.
Breathless and radiant, they embrace each other and then turn to the applauding people, who cannot see them in the dark, but can hear all the more. The darkness celebrates these two artists in the light, who have given everything during their time together. They have given themselves to scented music in harmony with themselves and their surroundings. Who seemed to slip away from space and time for a moment and to celebrate this slip away with themselves. They had long since forgotten that they were dancing in the midst of strangers. They were one with the music, their scent and themselves
When they later walk through the hall to the other side and to the exit before going home, they still perceive the scent of during the dance. But it has become a little quieter. Instead, a pleasant hint of vanilla mixes in, which gives the room a pleasantly sensual warmth and security.
Fahrenheit looks gold in the face, smiles gently and caresses his smooth, matte gold glass as she slowly crosses the dance floor at his side to the other side.

That was both of her nights, her dance and her moment.

That was the Tango of Gold and Fahrenheit.

Note: The fact that I inevitably perceive a hint of Dior Fahrenheit is certainly due to a few notes that include one or two of the many waters from the diverse series of them, which also appear in the Scent of Gold. Somehow, even with the addition of other aromas, the blend manages to get a bit close. Just in such a way that the fragrance not only prances on the masculine side, but also knows how to move skilfully in the feminine field. This results in a wonderfully tingling tightrope walk, which carries very sensual-soft and also vibrating echoes with it and thus also a very special scent pattern.

It Smells Like Jet Fuel To The Uninitiated
I tested the Scent of Gold on a friend of mine and it appeared opulent for a designer scent. I deem Trussardi has done something delightful with this whole line of niche-like offerings, which further includes Amber Oud and The Black Rose. I ended up purchasing all of them since I wanted to own the entire collection, and I perceived this to be freakish. I knew this brand with its products that have the "old" atmosphere, and this is one of the best new ones.

First things first, the Scent of Gold bottle is very elegant, has the typical shape of Trussardi perfumes, similar to a flask, the color is light gold, while the cap, the sprayer, and the two sidebands are in rosy metal.

What to say about the perfume? The Scent of Gold welcomes you with an unexpected slight sour blast in the first few minutes but it disappears rapidly. I assume it's induced by plums or better prunol. There is a boozy accord that evokes the Slivovitz, an eau-de-vie distilled from plums, a sort of old-country grappa produced in Central and Eastern Europe. Prunol smells like candied and dried plum with its floriental balsamic gourmand accord similar to that of the orchid. It has a deep sweetness that feels like brown sugar or molasses. There is creamy bergamot blended with spicy true cinnamon bark, which has a mild, subtle, citrusy and zesty aroma, ain't no strong as in Potion by Dsquared2, which is plenty of coumarins. Though the opening is unmistakably plummy, the jammy sweetness of stone fruit tempered by mild notes of bergamot and cinnamon, but not dominant.

The lovely dried fruit accord tones down in a while and lets room for sweet-smelling tobacco and floral nuances of jasmine and moistened violet leaves. It is not all too sweetish, but opulent and mysterious. At this stage, I catch an aspect that is present in TF Black Orchid, unless Scent of Gold is not a clone of that.

Roughly half an hour later the tobacco turns dry and becomes truly pleasant. The vanilla starts raising but does not take the gourmand vibe, ain't a gourmet bourbon vanilla as in pastry cream, yet a more sensual one, moderated by modern patchouli and smoky, balsamic, and resinous rock rose. The former two are clearly perceivable if you put your nose almost close to the skin, while the latter is the amber aura that surrounds you for a few hours.

Both sillage and longevity are moderate. It might start slightly overpowering, but then it calms down and does not disturb people around you. It will be a great choice for days and evenings in cool weather.

Scent so discreet that almost non-existent
Then how is gold supposed to smell? In my opinion, for nothing, perhaps for a touch of imaginary luxury...

For me, the fragrance smells cinnamon, fruit and tea right from the start, hardly noticeably floral and with rather little sweetness. A little later coming tobacco makes it harsh and it merges harmoniously into the gourmand earthy. But everything is so incomparably discreet, that not even the biggest perfume enemy notices anything of it. This decency integrates itself seamlessly on the skin and in the course of one's own body odour is suddenly great by itself and free of all kinds of animal odor, although as if unperfumed.

The silage is non-existent for me, I have to keep my nose about 1-5 cm away from the spray spot to feel something. Therefore also the course of the scents is not clearly definable. But the decency has perseverance and remains so for at least 8-9 hours.

Champagne - red gold colored flacon has preserved optics of hip flask, is comfortable in handling, only unfortunately opaque.

Personally, I like more solid scents rather, but out of consideration for all perfume enemies in the family / environment, I will keep this quite enjoyable scent. And I don't want to miss the unique feeling of suddenly smelling elegant on my own

All ingredients are sweet, so not good balance. But it reminds me of the scent that my mother once wore at the past.

Unmistakably plummy, the jammy sweetness of stone fruit tempered by mild notes of tobacco ad rock rose. Gold as a type of kingship on earth.

Gorgeous tobacco sweetened by cinammon & vanilla. An oriental delicacy with a good longevity for Trussardi. A turnaround from recent years.
