I wouldn't worry, Scentfanatic1631. I've yet to try Gold, but just from reading I got the impression it is a highly controversial scent, wether to be worn by a man etc. I also read the word "baby powder" or just "powder" many times in this context. My "advise" would be just to try it in a while again - I sometimes make the experience that I "understand" a fragrance better after time.
A less challenging fragrance from Amouage could be Jubilation XXV, a rich and exotic fragrance based on the theme of incense (to put it in a banal manner). I find it really not hard to like, it feels very "contemporary" and lighthearted to me. Good luck on your journey to Amouage! (...though I find it possible that more or less everyone has at least 1 "niche" house he just doesn't "get"...)
