    24 is a great underated frag. This juice is definitely a sleeper (more for us). Don't go too heavy on the sprayer though. Enjoy!

    It's good but really synthetic to me...but for the price great buy!

    Tried this but didn't care much for it. Agree quite synthetic and to me pretty generic.

    I presume you mean 24 and not 24 Gold? There's nothing generic about the Gold version!

    ok, here's my take on 24 gold... as I expected the initial blast starts of with a loud sweet vanilla, raspberry, and chocolate note... think of raspberry jello, tobacco vanille and back to black... that's what I get with the initial blast... the dry down is very interesting... the raspberry and chocolate note is toned down...and now I get a woody, vanilla, and amber scent, and close to the skin now... what i get is a YSL M7 and Amber Absolute kind of dry down... overall, I really like this fragrance, but it should not be sprayed on the neck or close to the nose, because it will knock you out! the only hold back on this fragrance is that I don't smell it much anymore after 4 hours... it's kind of weak now...

    My grade for 24 Gold after one wear is a 9/10... this would be a 10 if it last longer....

    4 hours? This stuff lasts over 24 hours on me. It's probably the most potent scent I own.

    I received a sample yesterday... I just don't get it -- why is there so much love for this? It's so sweet and feminine (and I only did 1 spray!). It doesn't seem to change much either. I'll try it again today.

    It's not bad but rather sweet/unisex/young/ and dare I say feminine. I happily wear (old) women's scents but this and things like Lolita Lempicka (original) I find too girlie and/or youthful to wear, associating them with typical, popular women's scents. Also I found, whilst the top notes are nice and strong, it did fizzle out after a while. Didn't seem to last that long on me.

    I think my 5 ml samples will last me for a while... it's a powerhouse fragrance for the first 4 hrs

    Tried it again and have to say I don't particularly care for it. Too sweet and syrupy; to me it smells like something that would be more suited for a woman. But I have 10mls of this stuff, so I'll keep trying... haven't worn it outside yet so perhaps I haven't experienced the development.

    Just out of interest... what is it about this fragrance that you love? What do you get out of it?

    If 24 Gold lasts less than 12 hours on you, you're doing it wrong.

    It's an amber bomb so I can see why some see it as feminine. I don't get the comments about it being generic or not lasting. In my opinion it's quite different and is a beast on my skin.

    I put on 24 gold again today.. one spray to the chest and it lasted for 12 hrs + i think i got a grasp of this fragrance now... here is a list of similar niche fragrance notes that smells like 24 gold.

    The raspberry note of tuscan leather

    The vanilla of tobacco vanille

    The amber of amber absolute

    The sweet wood from oud wood

    The spices of jubilation xxv

    All wrapped in one....

    A hell of a fragrance man. Enjoy!

    This is also a good frag for oud lovers. I can definitely detect it in this. Oud and raspberry.
