Amouage Gold Woman is the signature scent for Amouage. The classic French Perfumer, Guy Robert, was hired to design this scent using classic Arabic perfumer materials with a classic French twist. Amouage Gold Woman can be daunting - it is impossibly elegant and rich-smelling, and you feel like you need a Bentley and a chauffeur to be able to wear it. You don't. It smells rich because of the luxury raw materials that go in, but it becomes soft and beautiful, and you don't need any of those signs of wealth because this scent will make you feel like you could have all of those things, maybe for a few hours, and then you can put down the mental champagne glass and go back to your normal life. This is the Extrait.
Now Smell This - "Gold Woman is the ne plus ultra aldehydic floral. Basically, it makes Chanel No. 5 look like a street urchin who chews with her mouth open. Gold Woman is huge, symphonic, and loaded with hothouse flowers and diamonds. At first sniff, my nose fills with the champagne-fizz of soft, fruity aldehydes back-loaded with a seamless blend of floral notes leaning especially heavily on the crisp, elegant edge of the spectrum. Clean green notes push the fragrance away from guest soap territory.
For a full half hour, Gold stays sharp, clean, and brittle. Then the fragrance softens into a pillowy aura of quiet wood, sweet incense, and still those wondrous flowers. Gold sheds its diamonds, but keeps the marabou stole. It becomes a perfume that inhabits personal space without calling much attention to itself. It rests sheer, flattering, and whisper-light on skin kind of like — well, like a 1950s, nude organza coat."
