    No mate, you won't find in UK Retail. You can order from here > [email protected]

    Prices are as follows:
    - 24 Classic/Gold/Platinum/Go Dark 50ml: USD 40
    - 24 Classic/Gold/Platinum/Go Dark 100ml: USD 55
    - 24 Gold/Classic/Platinum Pocket Spray set: 100ml + 24ml pocket spray USD 59 - this is 24ml of product in a flat and fancy container for just 4$ more than price of the 100ml.

    + shipping charges (10 to 20 USD depending on weight).


    I bought option 3 and it ended up being about £45.00 delivered for the 100ml + 24ml (leather pouch)

    Thanks for the post. I've never tried this one, but it looks like one I'll have to try.

    Cheers,sounds ok but I'm not up for any blind buying unless it's dirt cheap. (ebay used works well for me.)

    After reading all the hype online over this stuff I decided to try it out. Don't know if my expectations were too high or what but I was expecting an awesome gourmand but to my nose it was pretty synthetic which I couldn't get past. I ended up selling my bottle.

    I tried it, but it dried down to a spiciness that I didn't like. The opening is rich and sweet, with a nice balance of spice, but the dry-down spice was bland. I give it a 5 because it is inexpensive and has decent longevity. Not on par with Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille but not as expensive either.

    Im sorry to say this but after i bought 24 Gold...i sold it in 2 days.
    I was expecting a gourmand bomb...but what i received was something else.
    I bought the 100 ml + 24 pocket spray version from FragranceX, on my skin, the longevity was very good 10 hours + but the sillage & projection was weak, after 2 hours the scent was close to the skin, projection was weak from the beggining but after 2 hours it was very very close to the skin, props to longevity...but it was not the beast i was expecting for.
    The smell is unique, oud + raspberry, sweet and dark, but at 50$ you can get a better gourmand, IMHO.
    Soo i sold my bottle, this was a big dissapointment...the hype is not real, belive that, YES it has very good longevity, YES it smells unique like nothing else on the market....but the sillage and longevity are very weak.
    And you can say its my PH...my skin, but i tested the perfume on 3 other persons...and it was the same, dont belive the HYPE guys, i rate this 7, because of the smell and longevity, maybe this is a good office scent, but its not a monster for clubbing or dating, sorry 24 Gold.

    It's a very unique gourmand of above average quality, best used sparingly and during the colder months.

    I would rate it an 8 out of 10.

    Holy hell! You get weak longevity and silage. Jesus, I get over 24hrs and even then I struggle to get rid of it in the shower. My wife can also smell me from the top floor in our house when I wear it!

    I don't know why I find this post funny. How do you know it doesn't project? Did someone test it for you? Did the person also test your scent trail?

    You can get amen now for $50 I think. There is something off putting about 24gold that I don't like. I love pure malt and amen so I don't hate gourmands.

    Exactly, A*Men is much better in the same price range. You want another example...Blue Sugar 3.4oz is about 30$, another great gourmand.
    @Granola: I asked many persons if they detect my fragrance, and they had to get up-close to smell it, soo yes...projection was weak on me. Longevity as i said, very good, 10 hours...not 24 hours like others.
    Maybe the batch on FragranceX has some problems, i dont know, i know many people ordered it from Scentstory, directly from the source on facebook...who knows, maybe i had the wrong batch.

    And i had another problem, my batch number on the box was not the same as the batch number on the bottle, that is weird no?

    Though I also don't like oud... Smells like vomit a little.

    Pretty nice scent but a full spray is way too strong for me. My climate can't handle it.

    great scent; fortunately on my skin is not all that sweet as many other complain. I get a lot of amber + spices. Longevity is outstanding and projection seems to be very good as well. I give it a 9.

    I gave it a 5.
    Its ok, not that special, and not hype worthy.
    The only thing it has going for it IMO is sweetness and strength.
    A vanilla/amber bomb + oud.

    Similar scent? Comptior Sud Pacifique - Vanille Mokha.
    The CSP is better IMO.
    I have left Basenotes due to excessive childish behavior by community members.

    The Fragrance Shop sell it cheap online and in bricks and mortar in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

    I don't find the scent that amazing to be honest but I've only ever gave it a quick sniff.

    Yeah, Fragrance shop sells it for £20 for 100ml!!!!! Amazing deal, they usually send it with '24' styled free gifts as well such as travel holdel, ipod holder etc.
