Composed by Guy Robert, the master of the sumptuous, sophisticated floral aldehydic genre, “Gold Woman” is created in the purest grand classical French way and it wouldn’t go amiss amongst the other iconic fragrances of the same style.
But there is a difference : “Gold Woman” might possibly be the smoothest, most polished out of them all and the thin, silvery threads of frankincense and myrrh elevate it straight into the sublime.
There’s a shimmering quality to it, a soapiness that is fizzy like champagne but at the same it’s so soft that it brings to mind the glow of sequins seen through gauzy layers of golden tulle. The florals are rich, yet somehow understated and blended so well that it’s hard to smell the delineations between rose, jasmine and muguet. They all merge into a cloud of abstract and poignantly beautiful floralcy. A hint of powdery orris and the aforementioned sacred resins add another dimension of trembling, subtle olfactory waves. It is a bit like the effect you notice when it’s very warm, the air starting to shimmer in a mirage blur.
And the drydown it’s worth an Amouage crystal flacon weight in well, gold. It is an absolutely divine, silky, sensual veil of mellow, musky, creamy woods with the merest suggestion, again in grand French tradition, of the intimate under frothy lace petticoats.
In the words of the great perfumer Guy Robert, its author, Amouage “Gold Woman” is the crowning glory of his career and we say one of the greatest perfumes ever made.
Amouage fragrances have reflected the wonderful heritage and mastery of perfume creation for over 30 years. The brand is renowned for creating some of the world’s most finely crafted and exotic fragrances.
The French perfumer Guy Robert created the first fragrance in the collection in 1983. Exceptionally talented and steeped in the traditions of fine French perfumery, Robert embraced the gifts of the Magi to create an exotic and masterful fragrance based on gold, frankincense and myrrh. Using these storied and valuable materials, he created a composition that included over one hundred natural ingredients from around the world. The result was Gold by Amouage, an exquisite fragrance for the ages that stands as a masterpiece to the art of fine perfumery.
Since the launch of Gold, Amouage has developed into a contemporary and global luxury brand holding strong to the high standards set from the beginning. Under the creative direction of Christopher Chong, the brand has continued to create trendsetting fragrances of the highest quality through collaboration with the finest perfumers available from Grasse, Paris, New York and Geneva.
