Reviews of 1 Million Absolutely Gold

I prefer Absolutely Gold to the original 1 Million or the more recent Intense or Cologne flankers. While many maintain that the original was strong enough, I found it fleeting enough to not be particularly worthwhile, with clones like Cuba Royal or Antonio Banderas The Golden Secret serving as perfectly suitable substitutes, and to that purpose, I own both. However, Absolutely Gold is truly the stronger, more intense, more refined version of the original, a sweet/citrus/floral combination.

Many offer that Absolutely Gold is more floral and less spicy than the original, and I agree, and certainly enjoy this floral/sweet pairing more than the original. The vanilla amber aspect identified by one reviewer does resonate with me, as the sweetness is pure enough to be vanilla, perhaps. Some of the bubblegum scent from the original (that's amplified in 1 Million Intense) is present, but not as prominently.

Certainly the notion that it's a pure perfume / extrait is validated by its strength in terms of projection and especially longevity. I'm still not sure I'd buy this but it's definitely the best of the 1 Million lot, to me.

Being such a hater of the original version as I am, can only say that this EDP (who are they kidding with the extrait excuse?) is less sweet, more manly, darker, and even pleasent. Has average longevity and projection for its concentration. Less synthetic and cheap than the previos version (yes, talking about the juice only here), is pretty decent for a massive brand. A true woody, this time, so won't run away from a man wearing it (unless have to look directly to the bottle).
