Is Xerjoff copying Chanel?
This question may sound quite provocative, but I'll come to this later, because I didn't recognize this connection myself until after a while of testing.

With Amber Gold, Xerjoff did not create a heavy amber scent, but a light, friendly one, which I would classify as elegant and unisex with a tendency towards stereotypical feminines. Two notes stand out right in the top note: the orange blossom, which succeeds in creating a delicate and powerful effect at the same time, and the coriander, which in combination evokes the association of star anise (see Kankuro's statement). I don't think of orange blossom as a banal white bloomer, because it often carries a note that I would describe as chewing gum sweetness. (At least since Le Male we all know that men can also wear such an unusual touch.) The hay-like tobacco blossom also adds a slightly green facet, but the most exciting thing is yet to come.

Amber is not known to be a certain note, but rather a chord consisting of different resins, mostly in combination with vanilla. I wonder why neither one of these notes, nor Amber, is listed here, because both the vanilla aspect in Amber Gold is obvious to me, as well as the light, resinous impression left by Benzoe. Because of the interplay of these notes with a soft, earthy patchouli, I feel strongly reminded of Chanel's Coromandel. The Eau de Toilette of the same is for me one of the best and most elegant Patchouli perfumes.

The difference that Xerjoff makes clear here is in the brighter orientation. Orange blossom gets plenty of room to unfold to give Amber Gold, unlike Coromandel, a strong floral accent. Patchouli, on the other hand, is used more sparingly. This is why Amber Gold has an optimistic, spring-like aura with a certain lightness. Only for the summer the sweetness should be a little too present.

Coriander, almond and orange blossoms, define the boundaries a light amber trail for this scent. It's quite nice but not a blazing oriental.+3
