Scent of Gold by Trussardi

Scent of Gold„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....

White Soho by Zara

White Soho„I've Got You Under My Skin”
First things first, Abelmoschus moschatus also known as ambrette seeds, Musk mallow, or Musk seeds is an aromatic and medicinal plant native to India. The ambrette seeds have a sweet, flowery, heavy fragrance similar to that of musk, and derives its name...

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.

The accord from iris and ambrette is so noble and brave, they are like the Beauty and the Beast, excellent for one another, and earthy iris.

The Beauty without the Beast. A powdery iris, patchouli, and tonka-bean-based fragrance that's incredibly sexy and will last all night long.+1

Delightful opening of grapefruit and apricot, a creamy-woody heart full of santal, and a "Diorish" ambroxan base with sweet tonka and musk.

Ain't no groundbreaking, a deja-vu apple-based scent liken Boss and Paco Rabanne. Not my cup of tea, all too sweet.
Citrus, vanilla, pineapple and just a hint of coffee. Smells a little bit like Stronger With You but not as spicy and Eros but not as minty+1

You're welcomed by sour citrus and berries, then gluttony cocoa and resinous juniper, all wrapped by velvety leather and "Diorish" ambroxan!+1

A sexy woody scent with juicy citrus, spicy, and earthy freshness. Miles away from Dior Homme, this is like a t-shirt over perfect jeans.

Surprisingly pleasant smell. It could be the lemon, or the florals, or the oakmoss. But then again, it could be all of those blended nicely!
It smells fresh and clean, but not in a fruity, ephemeral way. It's very unisex, almost soapy and chilly powdery. A blend of cool and warm.

Elysium„ZARA, the Thunder Feel, and the Metallic Spirit”
In late 2018 ZARA released to the market a couple of colognes classified as masculine, in EDP concentration, a great package, a heavy and magnetic cap, a superb sprayer, and a plentiful 120 ml bottle colored with translucent shades outside and liquid silver inside... which almost justify the higher price...

Ever since I was young, I have always loved to smell great. Cologne head all the way. Now that I am older I still love going to the mall or local shops to smell the latest fragrances. Always looking to make my collection of scents larger :)

Hello Elysium, Thank you very much for your reading and your kind comment on my blog article! I myself do not always write affirmatively about a scent if it left negative impression - frustration, incompatibility - especially failed blind purchases w/o testing opportunity, relying on praising reviews by other people; I then try to add my experience hoping to spare anyone else that might repeat the same mistake I did, only because no one else mentioned anything else than positive things. Still, I try to honestly describe and explain why I perceived something differently and what I personally did not like about it (there are few exceptions like some very low quality "dupes" that really just smelt of chemical liquid). I appreciate reviews sharing sincere feelings and thoughts, as you said, (the same for everything else in life) and find that is what makes a review valuable and authentic. With best wishes to you, Anessa
