Apparently, I tried two different versions of Pure Gold. The first one (a decant from MUA friend) was a dense, opulent woody floral with a rich patchouli note. I was smitten, bought a bottle on E-bay - big disappointment! I thought I bought a fake one. After getting a decant from another MUAer and getting a sample from Lucky Scent I found out that my bottle didn't have an extra shot and the decant did. I wish Montale was more clear about his scents...

A discreet fruity / light floral scent, nicely composed, nicely balanced between fruit and florals – I can’t quite distinguish the particular fruit and floral notes because it presents itself so lightly to my nose. Pure Gold smells a bit soapy and ends up with a light aura of white musk and a soft vanilla. It’s not the kind of fragrance that I admire but it might be one for a person who desires a soft, well-made, feminine fruity floral.

As far as fruity florals go, Pure Gold is a very fine example. Unlike the typical designer offering Pure Gold is restrained and classy, and Montale obviously employs good materials in production. This isn't a groundbreaking fruity floral but it's certainly worthwhile. I get quite a bit of jasmine and mandarin, but the composition is not overly sweet. For a fragrance that contains mandarin, and neroli it is not a citrus overload - the orange blossom adds enough 'green' to tamper that sweetness. After an hour or so a touch of light, musky patchouli enters the picture, but the orange-ish central accord never fully recedes.

Pure Gold isn't something I'd reach for or purchase, but if you're looking for a restrained fruity floral with very good longevity give this a check.

Pure Gold is gorgeous. If you're familiar with Chanel's Coromandel and enjoy it, you'll love this. It has a number of new elements, including some berry notes and other juicy aspects. After the first 20 or so minutes, it transforms and becomes a wonderful experience of patchouli and vanilla. I'll be buying this shiny one this week!

It's an ordinary, soapy floral. A bit of apple and iris. It's a feminine scent through and through and ordinary. Closely resembles several $30-or-less bottles. You won't find a more forgettable bottle for over $50. Still, I'm not making it a negative on its incredible price tag alone. Just take this as a fair warning - you don't need to spend $150 or $200 on something that smells like this.
