Reviews of Cabotine Gold

There is one review of Cabotine Gold.
Cabotine Gold is not glittering, but shimmering with an understated elegance, both in design and its content. The watery-sweet, honey-dewed melon at the beginning only shortly reminds of J'adore, before citrus turns on the lights and pink pepper adds the sparkles. The warm, almost effervescent scent evokes a certain feeling of festiveness - be it New Year's Eve or any other celebration which finds a certain excitement in the air, anticipating the unknown.
The similarity to Coco Mademoiselle with the citrusy-spicy patchouli is indeed undeniable; but Gold is much more subtle, without the claim for an oustanding statement. The white florals, matching with the gold and light beige theme, are tastefully placed in the background to add to the splendour; they do not show any clean/soapy nor sharp characteristics and harmonise well into the whole picture.

Had there not been the one note that often spoils it for me, I would've found another gem with Gold: Vetiver, rather temperamental on my skin, turns strong in its bitter facet ("shaving cream"), and together with amber, the pachouli and a sweetness either coming from tiare or the melon, it develops into a sweetened, spicy scent that I rather would smell on a man than on myself. Unfortunately, Gold remains this way all through the dry down, while maintaining a moderate sillage, before it departs with a tired sweetness after almost half a day.

While Gold did not work on my dry, hot and slightly acidic skin, it showed and retained its beauty throughout on someone else - and so, it will stay in my record, another well-done, sadly discontinued fragrance by the house of Grès. At this point, it can still be found for a very reasonable price online for anyone who wishes to try out.
