What I like most about this fragrance is…the bottle.
Its basically in a shape of a gold bar and each bottle has its own serial number and I like this bottle a lot! It’s like spraying gold dust every time You use it, pretty cool.
There is two primary sizes of this cologne available in the US, 50ml and 100ml bottle
Because it is so popular fragrance – it’s highly copied so be very careful where you buy it from, stick to well known fragrance shops and highly rated amazon and ebay sellers and if the price seems to be too low – investigate it further.
But to the point.
This fragrance is very sweet, very fruity, very spicy and extremely powerful. The strength of this stuff is intense, and let me tell you, one or two sprays is more than enough to keep you going for the whole day so be easy on the trigger.
I can’t really recognize the two top notes mentioned above, neither grapefruit or orange seem to be easily recognized from the top of it. Instead you get something more like candy-bubble-gum-kinda opening.
As for the occasion, this fragrance is more like date/club/night out scent and not really for work or casual wear. It’s perfect for young adults, anyone below 30 years old can wear it all year round. It drags people’s attention so be prepared for lots of questions and compliments (ask yourself first if you can handle this:)
Who wants a candy?
