Reviews of Dazzling Gold

The esoteric names for the floral scents involved in both this and its sister, Dazzling Silver, don't disguise the fact that these are both synthetic, chemical florals. Dazzling Gold is bright and bold and in your face, while Dazzling Silver is more subdued, a bit drier with the hay-like addition of Sunflower.

Neither is distinguished nor interesting. Turin liked Silver (4 stars) slightly more than Gold (3 stars). As "calchic" summarizes, this is "just another run of the mill floral."

They seem to both be discontinued, which is a good thing. Ridiculous prices are asked on Ebay. Don't be fooled and for heaven's sake, do not blind buy.

This was awful on me. Just another cheap smelling, totally indistinct floral. It's very very flat and dull.

I wanted to love this perfume, but it smelled just like every other perfume out there. Nothing to make it stand out, but nothing to make it a true stinker either...Its just not one to wear if you want to be noticed.

Dazzling Gold is not exactly dazzling - more like burnished to a warm glow, if you ask me. It's also not entirely interesting; in fact, it easily falls into the class of just-another-fruity-floral-for-the-cooler-months type of fragrance, nothing to write home about. It is, however, definitely one thing - much, much better than its counterpart, Dazzling Silver, which should be subtitled "choker." Anyway, Dazzling Gold is a soft and relaxed scent and the honeyish fig topnote gives it some potential to be at least a little special, but that potential ends up being squandered on the pretty ordinary heart of lily and orchid. (Don't let the fancy names fool you - they're just lily and orchid.) Orchid, when left to its own devices, can bring down the more finely-tuned calibrations of any fragrance and I feel it does justthat here. It smothers all the other notes and just sits there being boring and heavy. Orchid doesn't even strike me as a very golden flower - instead, it brings to mind light mauves. And it also makes Dazzling Gold just another run of the mill floral. Too bad.
