Reviews of Gold / Yardley Gold

Wow this is a blast from the past ..think bullseye..pubs closing Sunday afternoon..Liverpool winning major trophys..holidays in Skegness etc etc etc, this aftershave is in that list ..very nostalgic like aramis it is bold and unforgiving..If people don't like it then it's pretty much tough luck as the scent is so strong you'll stain the room long after you have left it , however if used sparingly it is a nice clean masculine addition that will have people's attention in some form or another.

I bought a bottle of this about 25 years ago, when it was still made by Yardley. Recently I had the opportunity to buy another bottle. It is not very common here in Australia, though from what I can see, it is quite common and cheap to get in England. To me this is a great budget fragrance, that is well worth the low price. Is is somewhat like Aramis mixed with a fougere like Worth homme, with a little powderiness thrown in for good measure. It is warm, rich and although it may not be anything ground-breaking, is still worth owning. The projection is good as is the longevity.

I had a bottle of this before the re-branding. I have not tried it since then as I remember not being able to get used to it at all and ended up pouring it down the sink. It is very strong and old fashioned and will clear any room. There is a very overpowering musk,mixed with floral notes and leather, which is very dated and harks medallion man and hairy chest wig.
It is a bit like the powdery baby talc stink bomb that is English Leather, but with more citrus added. It reminded me of the smell of an old leather hangbag my mother had, when we were having a clearout. I sniffed it before putting it in the black sack and the stench ingrained in it with years of lipstick, perfume bottles and blusher, which it had carried if strained out would give you Yardley Gold.

Warm, spicy but overall very generic scent. It has a certain 70's attitude, it is definately more potent and even a bit over the top rather than restrained, on the good side long lasting, but also fiery in a slightly overdone way. Even the drydown is so 70's- animalic, sensual, almost intoxicating. It should have either had a very exotic/ Oriental name, one hinting at its heavy ingredients or one marketing party mood, glam, excess and funk or disco feeling. Tough made in the 80's and named after one of this materlistic decade's most widespread obsession and status symbol, it smell like it should have been launched one decade earlier.
