    Default Amouage Gold Man Blind Buy

    Sorry for another Amouage thread.

    I just blind bought Amouage Gold Man for a pretty good price. I've never smelt this. What should I expect when I get it? From all the reviews I've read its pretty polarizing.

    I do like Amouage Ciel Man, Interlude Man, Tribute Attar and Epic Man. Probably going to purchase Interlude Man in the next week or two.

    Thanks

    It's awesome but completely different from the others you mention. It's the best that I've tried from Amouage but I can see why some wouldn't like it. It's an incredibly rich, floral, heavy, projection beast.

    This smells grand and expensive.

    Gold Man is about the only one I find questionable. I have had a sample for years and still not sure I would wear it. Just not my kind of thing, extremely floral. Think baby powder + floral.

    Gold man is my favorite Amouage, and I love it. It is an enormous, rich floral. Think the power of Tribute, but with a floral-incense-resinous structure. And by flowers I don't mean the rose of Epic, but a big bouquet of narcotic flowers, from jasmine to tuberose to rose to what else.

    But, as you state, it is a polarizing frag. Many people are turned off by florals for men; also, it has (or at least my version had) plenty of dirty animalics like civet, which again turns some people off.

    Might depend if it's recent or old stock, if the female one is anything 2 go by - compliance & all that.

    I sampled the amouage line and gave them all full wearings on different occasions.

    I bought Amouage Gold Man after that challenging journey. It doesn't mean that it's the best from that line but it's the only one IMO that is worth the money as it is that rich and powerfull.

    I love it. If you like Boucheron Homme Jaipür EDP then this one should be your taste too.

    I don't find it to be a good idea - just from my own experience. Just like someone above, I have a sample for about 4 years, once one a quarter-year I spray it on my wrist, just to see if I've changed or the juice did so. Never any of us

    Floral and rich, total opposite from other amouage line. If you like jubilation and epic you will love interlude.

    It's a bold blind buy, to be sure.
    The opening blast is the most acrid I've ever smelled - it quite literally causes a burning sensation in my throat.
    Even though I consider myself to be a big fan of floral, powdery and animalic fragrances, Gold Man just smells too powdery and floral for my liking.
    TLS is right in saying that it's an opulent and deep fragrance, but it just smells awful to me.

    But hey, when we blind buy we often force ourselves into liking the fragrance at first instance.

    The stankiest rose imaginable. It smelled almost rotten to me.

    My bottle of it should arrive in a few days. Based on everyone's opinion it sure seems like a love it or hate it no middle ground.

    I was so not impressed by this. Johnson's Baby Shampoo with a little baby powder is what I got from it. I was expecting something far different than what I received.

    If V Putin wears this then good for him but If I was his stylist I would have advised him against it.

    I was hoping for an opulent ANNUCI when I read that it was a heavy hitting floral but that was not the case.

    My advise to u is dont through it at the first sniff
    Because that what I did and i regret it later.
    A truely amazing scent
    But you need to be patient to understand it
    and later appreciate it.
    Dont over spray though

    I strongly against buying blind Gold Man. The drydown is very very bad, I mean it stink, imagine you do not brush your teeth for a week then you spit on you hand. The smell of that dry split is Gold Man. The opening is powdery/floral/soft but the drydown is extremely ugly. The worst I've ever smelled

    I love to blind buy. But when it is such an expensive fragrance, so old, and so strong, I simply cannot bring myself to do it. If it were considered a classic like Shalimar, I would risk blind buying it. But it is not.

    I am trying to get a sample of it. Someday I will try it and will decide.

    IMHO Gold is a classic.
