    Default Scentstory 24 Fragrances. What are your thoughts?

    I would like to hear what others think of this line. Sponsored by Fox. Its bit of a weird concept.

    Me too, I want to know if they can compete with the more popular designer bottles.

    24 Gold is the best in that line IMO. Perfect for Fall and Winter. I get about 9 hours easy with this one.

    Let me guess, your work friend owns these ones to, right?

    I've only tried 24 Gold. It's a very strong woody rose fragrance. Unisex. High quality for the price.

    I like 24 Gold. I get a white chocolate and raspberry thing from it, with a lot of amber in the dry down. It's very powerful and lasts forever. A true gourmand fragrance. The one thing I don't like about it is the Oud in the opening, which smelled of some type of synthetic rubber, like a new basketball or something. But that goes away quickly. Easily worth its price.

    Actually have hundreds of employees, many of whom are my friends and collect scents. Actually this friend isn't even employed in my company that had these four scents. Thanks for the interest!

    If you are a legitimate fan of gourmands, 24 gold will compete with everything you probably have tried/owned before.

    It's literally a niche quality scent at an indie/designer price. My top 5 scent for winter and i even prefer it over DHI.

    The regular 24 and the 24 platinum are okay but not near the sparkle and potency of 24 Gold.

    The Go dark is also okay . It shares big similarities between L'instant de Guerlain Extreme, but is less complete and less rounded than the latter. It's missing something IMO.

    So to sum it up for you, if you ever want to try/order one, 24 Gold is the one.

    My man tdwctdwc pretty much summed it up. For those that don't know Scent Story has released Oud specific editions of 24 Gold and 24 Platinum. For the price these fragrances are awesome and can compete with many higher priced fragrances.

    Thanks for the responses, guess I'm sold on a sample at least, since gourmands are my favorite

    Off Topic a bit..
    I find 24 Gold to be more Floral than Gourmand

    It might be the combination of Jasmine, Ylang -Ylang and vanilla that is giving that prominent floral vibe on your skin.

    For others, that trio combination of notes has translated into a Raspberry vanilla smell.

    But i can certainly see where you coming from when you mention the "floral" vibe.

    For me, It's a sweet amber/vanilla powerhouse with some woods in the background, that keeps going and going and going and going and going....and going on my skin.

    I have a close friend that is a 24 and Jack Bauer fanatic, so I got him a bottle of 24 Gold for his birthday. He loves it, he's gotten compliments on it, and I like it too.

    I've thought about getting a bottle of it for myself at times.

    Gold kind of reminds me of Interlude Man. anyone else think so?

    That's probably because of the oud and incense. I see where one would think that.
