    HELLO GUYS,
    I received Guba Gold and want to share with you my impressions. I quote you because I think you described very well this item on your posts. It is rich as you said, and didn't recall a cheap frag at all.
    I wouldn't say it is totally similar to le male, I find differences especially at the end, but of course it is similar....
    A guy said in a post I found here making a research that he found similarieties with Body Kouros. Personally, I can't find any at all, because BK has (beautyfull) incens drydown that CG hasn't. But for me CG ends in a very good way, very "slowly"....I would say CG ending notes reminds me JPG fleur du male starting note, on their feminine note, sweet but in a "strong msculine way" at the same time....
    Anyway, I like this cuba very much, its longevity is amazing, you have sillage assured for 4-5 hours, and later up to 8 hours at least you can still smell it if you put your nose where you sprayed. And I think it is suitable not only in cold time but, only in the evening and only if used just a few bit, in summer as well (althought of course not freshness at all). Just impressions from a newbie nose.

    Glad you're enjoying it. Haven't tried BK because it seems like something too similar to stuff I already own, so I can't pitch much into that; but, I agree with your words. For a "noob nose" you seem to know what you're talking about.

    Well, I smelled Cubano Copper today and that one has the GIT vibe but with a little bit of powdery tones added underneath.

    Dont know Cuba gold and personally don't like this kind of scents but, le male is definitely better than 360 white general quality wise. 360 white is poor man's le male imo.

    I have yet to try 360 White or Le Male but I own and have worn Cuba Gold. I have changed my opinion of it to a negative. Last try evoked a sense of synthetic and unnatural sweetness bordering on nausea.

    Bought a bottle of 120ml Cuba gold for 9.99 at TJmaxx. Its amazing how similar it is to Le male. I have only tried it on my wrist so can't say about longevity but after 6 hours on my wrist, there still hints of it.

    Cool Re: Le Male vs Cuba Gold vs 360 White

    I can't stand either.

    Le Male is a masterpiece---of gay ad copy. Yes, you may look up my review, sailor.
    Cuba Gold---is Le Male with diabetes, but at a cheaper price.

    May I humbly suggest:


    Mont Blanc Individuel
    Laura Biagotti's Roma
    Paloma Picasso's Minotaure
    Cacharel Pour Homme

    I could mention others, but at least with these we're in the same ballpark price range.

    360 White - you can't get a better copy of Le Male than that. The top notes are a mess, but after three minutes on skin it settles into an almost-exact replica of the Gaultier. It may even be better because there is a little less of the Male sweetness in that powdery vanilla part. Frankly, I dislike anything that smells like Le Male. But this is a good one.

    Last time I wore Cuba Gold, about two years ago, I got some on my shirt. Several hours later there was a candy-like smell (with a little that bit of an artificial mint quality) wouldn't quit, and after that I couldn't wear it any more. The comment about diabetes rings true for me.

    hahah funny how things change.

    that was in the begining of my fragrance journey when Le Male was stolen from my car and i was lying to myself that i didnt need it. how far weve come

    So I have an exam to write in about 10 days, so I am trying to keep my fragrance the same for that duration (due to smell > memory connections etc). Out of my collection I didn't want to really use GIT Rochas BodyK or even Zara Sprint for that duration seeing as it is almost a waste in that I won't be around other people to share my joy of the fragrance (shallow I know), so I decided on Cuba Gold.

    I am a Le Male lover, my favorite fragrance of all time by far. This said I can state that Cuba Gold is wonderful in its own right. It starts off as a sweeter Le Male with hints Tobacco, and settles off as Versace Dreamer. What a great combo and a happy realization! Longevity is a good 6 hours or so, Silage is pretty decent as well.

    Now, here is the amazing fact about Cuba Gold... to the best of my knowlage and limited searching, it is The Cheapest Mens Fragrance

    Perry Ellis White on the other hand, I owned, and didn't really enjoy - far to powdery, didn't work for me and I would pick Cuba Gold over it 9 out of 10 times.

    Le male is still amazing and fully worth the price you pay - don't get me wrong. Between Le Male and Cuba all other things being equal, I would still take Le Male.

    Edit: Another great Cuba Gold bonus! The Sprayer is wonderful! Stiff with a consistent spray - Better than my Creeds.

    Please don't consider this to be a knock against you - I am just amazed with so many posts you haven't tried Le Male, one of the more popular fragrances of the past 20 years. Any reason?

    Well I def retract my statement about Cuba Gold's longevity, it surely is a beast in that department. Everything else, I feel about the same with. Neil's conclusion is about the same as mine.

    Le Male - A classic, the phenomenon that started it all. If there was no Le Male, there would be no Cuba Gold, and I would be disappointed as it's an essential part of my collection.

    Cuba Gold - Similar to Le Male, but darker.. I think the lavender is the star here as well, the vanilla isn't as up front, nor is it as blended as LM

    360 White - Just a mess. Horribly synthetic lavender, overly powdery, nauseating.

    The one major thing I notice that they share is they all have either no or a very laid back mint note. I don't get it in Cuba Gold, and it may be there in 360 White, but I doubt it.

    Right on the spot. Cuba Gold, Le Male, 360 white are all fine fragrances. To me 360 white however is surely the best pick due to
    - Le Male's pricetag and a bit too much added sweetness
    - Cuba gold being perceived by woman frequently as a cheap knock off, as it has this femine low-price-feel added in the drydown

    I bought a 1.13oz, or close to , of cuba gold and have found that it is less of a copy of le male as it is a twist. Cuba gold has a darker feel to it with the tobacco note and it dials back the sweetness of the vanilla. All in all it wouldnt feel foolish to own both le male and cuba gold, as they have different feels to them. I am unfamiliar with 360 so i cannot say anything about it.

    Is Cuba gold and Cubano Gold the same fragrance or they smell different, and where we can see the notes in them. Which one i should buy? Cubano or Cuba. but Cubano is cheaper.

    I just saw a giftset of 4 60ml bottles of Cubano at TJ Maxx last weekend (Gold, Copper, Bronze, & Silver) for $19.99. I'm thinking I'll pick it up if it's still there this weekend. I understand Gold is Le Male, Copper is Cool Water, and one of the others is similar to Polo Sport.

    fleur de male by JPG is one of my favorites, I also have cuba gold and I find it more of a knock off than similar.First off when you buy for $10.00 the ingredient used to break the oil in most cases is acetone.Most often you will get scented oils, this is one of the reasons for its short life on your skin.So beware of the wolf in cheap clothing.
