    Wow, that sounds absolutely amazing. I believe some of our Aussie members have already inhaled this one, will definitely add it to my splits once I procure a bottle as the Euphoria Gold was awesome, Euphoria Liquid Gold had the sandalwood and saffron of this offering along with black pepper and was also great so looking forward to this one.

    I really liked CK's Liquid Gold Euphoria when I tried it. I will eventually buy for the fall. I will give this Pure Gold a sniff around that time period. I gotta slow down on all these buys to a point where I can pay them off the credit card then buy another one.

    I bought this a few months back at Abu Dhabi airport, I'm glad they're finally putting the notes out as I couldn't figure out what I was smelling.

    Just FYI it smells nothing like any of the other CK Euphoria range, in fact if I didn't own the bottle and just smelled it I wouldn't believe it's from CK it's unlike any of their others

    At this part I imagined a look of sheer disgust in the Victorian style coming across your face at the effrontery of the sales rep. You know the kind that makes you clasp your cape to your chest as you recoil slightly at the sheer indignity, sort of like that.

    Yeah, I have an active imagination.

    Thanks for sharing. Not a CK fan, though might give it a sniff.

    I love the notes but I'm afraid Vanilla and Sandalwood (both so overused nowadays) will make this unacceptably sweet for me :-(

    This sounds amazing. I do recall somebody posting on the forums a few months back about finding this at a Duty Free I believe. He said it smelled amazing and he bought it on the spot, but couldn't find anything on the internet about it; so it was assumed it was a very limited edition release. Unless I'm mistaken, it looks like the same bottle as the one he posted.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Burberry Brit with a touch of synthetic oud and cedar swapped out for sandalwood? That's my guess!

    So is this an EdP across the board like Liquid Gold or a return to the normal CK form?

    Liquid Gold, while not quite my cup of tea, was in a different universe than the rest of the Euphoria line in terms of quality & performance. Took forever for it to show up stateside though, and was originally supposed to be a Middle East only release (I'm wondering if it didn't do so well there and they had a lot of stock to get rid of). I'd guess Pure Gold is the same deal and I won't be seeing it here for a long time.

    Yes, that was me as I was leaving Abu Dhabi airport in the 2nd week of January. At the time a Google search didn't bring up any results

    Seems consistent then with the Gold editions, none of which smell anything like the original, or each other.

    I sampled it today and I was impressed by it. this is a sweet spicy woody middle eastern style fragrance.
    I got some cardamom, a hint of rose and a touch of medicinal oud in the opening. it quickly started to sweeten up and that is when it started reminding me somewhat of ambre narguile. it is much less sweet though and more spicy. so maybe just 30-40% similarity there.
    the vanilla in the drydown is not too sweet and not too intense. i got more of the woods/oud in the drydown.
    now the performance could be just moderate or average.

    sampled it again today. the opening is very spicy and dominated by cardamom. a genuine cardamom smell.
    this fragrance gives off a similar vibe to that of guerlain santal royal.

    This sounds more and more awesome with each report as I've been looking for a genuine cardamom scent and the Santal Royal vibe is just icing on the cake.

    Let's hope it lands here quicker than Liquid Gold did which took nearly 2 years.

    in the late drydown of this fragrance it started to get more woody and slightly smoky yet sweet. this phase reminded me a little bit of the late drydowns of both dior homme parfum and amouage interlude man! the drydown of pure gold is so good but close to the skin (5 hours in)
    as i'm typing this message im watching the advertisement for pure gold on the TV which has been showing up very frequently in the past few weeks.

    Thanks, that was the same price that Liquid Gold was going for when it was an exclusive over there. Here's hoping it materializes at the importers with a 1/3rd off as the last one did.
