Reviews of Incense Gold

Incense Gold opens with a lemon and saffron note that is wonderfully exotic and deep for saffron and is an aggressive incense opening. This saffron is the leading edge of a cold steely cardamom, incense, juniper, peppery leather body of dryness that has a dark incense feel. The character of Incense Gold is dark and rough but clothed in a rugged elegance - you don't take your eyes off this presence if you pass it on the street. A bold statement. A rating of 7.5 of 10.

What we have here is an intensely woody fragrance from the same mould as Montale's challenging Dark Aoud. Incense, saffron and Cypriol pepper accent the woodiness.

It opens with nice but fleeting soft citruses. Within a minute the unisex floral heart introduces itself and keeps things relatively friendly and complex for the first hour, always expressing itself through the woody base. Gradually the intensity of the woody base comes to the fore, and by the three hour mark the base has grown dark, dry, bitter, brooding, intimidating. Not an easy wear, and far from a compliment getter. But if the fragrance matches your mood, it may be a worthwhile wear.

I don't get any plush Leather or white musk, so don't let the presence of these notes in the pyramid mislead you. They are more a reference to this fragrance's intense musky woods than anything approaching leather or white musk.
