    Gold Man looks like it should arrive today. I ordered a 100ml bottle of Interlude Man last night.

    Blind buying Gold Man is risky business. It was one of the fragrances I've been wanting to try out in my big sample pack that arrived yesterday.

    My verdict: it smells very strong, anussy (animalic) and reminds me of a cheap shower gel i used to have long ago when i didnt know anything better. If it wouldnt have been an Amouage I'd thrown the sample into the bin.

    But it might be a gem to you. Let's hope so.

    I hope you enjoy gold man, because it took me many wears of my samples to understand gold man... pretend you are a Sultan living in a royal palace and you will comprehend gold man...

    Well my bottle of Gold Man arrived today. Unfortunately I'm battling a sinus infection at the moment so my sense of smell is pretty much gone.

    I did one spray to chest and one to my wrist. Mostly what I'm getting is a powdery smell maybe some frankincense can't really pick any notes out. From what I barely can smell of it I think I'm going to enjoy it.

    You must have one hell of a sinus infection to not be able to smell GOLD ;-) I know you will enjoy it!

    Take care!

    I wore it again yesterday but still battling a sinus infection so my sense of smell is still very low. I'm mostly getting a powdery incense smell with the civet making itself more pronounced hours later.

    Gold was my first Amouage and although my taste has changed a bit,
    I still wear it regularly and I don't find it powdery at all. You'll like it.

    My smell still isn't back yet but I did enjoy it each time I tried. I think I'm going to purchase Amouage Silver today.

    Glad to hear you like it (and that it's still good). I like Silver too, but remember that it is quite different. It is supposed to be a fresh, almost eau de cologne type of smell, except that it's based on rose, and has a strange, but interesting, metallic edge. And it lasts much more than a regular fresh eau de cologne.

    I ordered a 100ml bottle of Silver today along with Interlude Man shipping today. Should also be receiving samples of the Opus line with my order.

    Now I own Gold, Silver, Ciel, Epic, Interlude, and Tribute attar.

    I've been really enjoying Gold Man. I mostly have been wearing it in the evenings. There's no soapiness that I'm picking up but there is definitely a powdery smell.

    Glad I purchased it.

    It's a KING IMO! Glad you like it. It deserves some more love here on BN.

    Good lord, I would NOT blind buy this. Only Amouage that I cannot stand. Possibly the worst fragrance i've ever smelt. Maybe tied with Kouros.

    Smells like the cheap soap & cheap air freshener you find in a public toilet... While IN a public toilet. Couldn't wash it off my skin quickly enough.

    I love Amouage Gold. Its a masterpiece to me.
    I love Civet and on my skin this is a Civet-Floral-Incense bomb.
    On other skins it does turns powdery, on mine though its musky Civet sandalwood.
    Its a scent which for some, will require a learning curve to be appreciated.

    It also has 1930s and 40s rich man vibe. A loud yet introspective fragrance. It does quiet down after 2-3 hours.
    If you like Kouros, Jicky, Ungaro II, MKK, this is a great addition.

    Thanks for starting this thread. I'm really getting into florals, so I gotta try Gold. Love the Wizard of Oz lion reference. Too funny.

    Since purchasing Gold Man last year it has probably become my most worn Amouage. I wore it a lot during the summer and thought it worked great.

    Amouage Gentlemen's EDT and Cologne are also great if you can find a bottle.

    Great you were able to find it at that price Rev and have enjoyed it so much. Gold like Dia turns to powder on my skin so I it's not for me, but Amouage is by far my favorite house. Have you gotten into any of their other fragrances?

    I own 19 fragrances from Amouage at the moment. Top three probably are Epic, Gold, and Tribute. My least favorite is Reflection.

    Best place to sample is ParfumsRaffy. Official samples cost around $6.
