"Gold Jay Z" is his first fragrance developed for men and composed with the help of Firmenich perfumer Ilias Ermenidis.

Top notes await us with a union of ginger, grapefruit, blueberry and cardamom. The heart emphasizes masculine vetiver incorporated with pink pepper, lavender and violet leaf on a base of amber, peace, teak and vanilla. Its olfactory character is described as a white fougère and it really has that scent, quiet, fresh, elegant and serene, gently heated with the warmth of amber and vanilla. Jay Z Gold will be available in bottles of 15, 30, 50 and 90 ml EDT, accompanied by perfumed products for face and body. The outer package completes the new edition's glamor with a golden relief surface. Gold was launched in 2013.

You know,I'm the minority about this frag.

I LOVE IT! Sure, it's not exactly new but it is a very pleasing scent and projects not great but decent.

I have smelt this frag before, but was at the mall yesterday.. tested it out, and BAM i fell in love.. got home and oredered it.

Scent: 8/10
Lasting Power: 6/10
Projection : 6.5/10
Unique : 6/10
Versatility : 9/10

Overall 3.5/5

I think you can wear this year round, almost any occasion.

Do i recommend? Yes! It is a definite try, don't let the name push you away. Jay Z is a very successful man, so saying I'm wearing Gold by Jay Z isn't gonna be hard for me! Im a Hov fan lol

This isn't a scrubber, it's a flusher! (LOL) Seriously, it's not a bad fragrance...just sweet and generic like so many other colognes. It's worth no more than $20 for a 100ml bottle IMO.

To my surprise - a very pleasant perfume! I assumed it was a fragrance for women when I smelt it. Warm, sweet, and likeable. A girl could wear this easily.

Mmmh, that smells good on the strip! Original and clean smell I had to sniff the whole time on the strip.

But I was always perfumed everywhere (knees, hands, clothing) and had no place anymore for testing on the skin. Adorable and valuable bottle.
Edit: On the skin it smells long time clean and fresh, oh, very beautiful. For men only!!!

Jay Z Gold. A sweet, fruity, woody, fresh fresh fragrance.
The box is preety cool. It seems like I found it buried with other treasures, key on the name.
The bottle is very simple with most of the attention on the lid. The lid is very reminiscent of ushers fragrance tops.
In short, the fragrance's more prominent notes that I get are grapefruit, vetiver, and violet with Amber and vanilla.
The scent is nothing different but still incredible
This fragrance is perfect for anythime of the day. It is one of my favorites and I hope Jay z releases more.
Lasting power about 8 hours
Projection moderate
Box 10/10
Bottle 7/10

It smells good.

Synthetic blueberry holds sway for the early going, with an all-too-common "violet" "cardamom" combo in the heart (ed hardy love & luck, ysl l'homme, curve, burberry touch, etc. etc.). Spices and woods are well-nigh non-existent to my nose. As it dries down, vanilla, lavender, and generic Firminech amber accord #XXX come forward and it turns into something powdery and fruity-sweet which could be branded "Beyonce" just as easily.

It doesn't smell like anything distinctive or even interesting, but still, it smells good. Safe. Versatile. Crowd-pleasing. Lasts a decent while, projects well. I'd recommend it to college age or under just as I'd recommend any commercial release designed by focus groups.

Yet another fragrance ruined by the ozonic, metallic accords that produce the chemical trash scent. Scrubber.

When I first tried it, I had assumed it was a woman'' s fragrance,as it was placed next to other feminine scents, it smells nice, sweet, aromatic, I didn't think it was for guys! Now, I guess for men out there who don't like over spicy, dry, strong scents , this would be nice, very nice, in the soft category, this isn't in your face masculine and dense, this is light, fresh and kind of distinguished..i can see my husband or one of my sons wearing this!!

I love this scent, and I am buying it for my husband - who will most likely immediately give it to our son as he is not a frag guy, though I keep trying things on him! And that's fine. I think it's elegant, understated, and it hits all the right notes for a sophisticated masculine scent. It is office friendly and it's great for casual and formal dates too. I definitely get citrus and lavender and pepper, and the teak wood. It's definitely a fougere at heart with a suggestion of vetyver. Projection is a foot or so, though my skin just drinks any perfume, with a quick fade out; about an hour and it's gone.

I think celebrities can sell more bottels without putting their name on the fragrance. Who would buy a fragrance called Jay-z or Britney Spears ? It is sooooooo cheap.

I didn't want to like it. I figured it was just some junk that Jay-Z put his name on. I was looking for a cologne while doing some Christmas shopping, and smelled nearly everything at Macys and Dillards. I picked up GOLD just out of curiosity, and was surprised at how much I liked it. It was very mellow, and not to sweet or musky. After smelling nearly everything else, I kept going back to GOLD. Eventually, I found a gift set that included a bottle of aftershave along with the cologne and bought it. I still love the smell a month later, and my only knock is that the scent doesn't seem to last very long.

This is nothing more than a cheap alternative to Paco Rabanne One Million. It smells virtually identical and even the "gold" theme is a blatant knock off. That being said, it is actually a pretty decent facsimile. The initial spray has a lighter, slightly more "fresh" scent, but with more alcohol and synthetic notes. The dry down between the two is almost indistinguishable, except that longevity and sillage are somewhat weaker in Jay-Z's formula. Gold is also a bit less complex, but that is to be expected considering the price difference. I wore One Million on one arm and Gold on the other for a day, and these are the only noticeable differences I could find between the two. Considering this will probably turn up for cheap in bargain bins at TJ Maxx soon, I would actually consider buying a bottle as an inexpensive alternative to One Million.

I was with my brother in a store when I helped him choose this fragrance. When I smelled it I was really surprised at how nice a cologne it really is. It does have some spicy notes in it. When I think of spicy scents I think of ones that have the potential to be overpowering. However, Gold is a great and subtle cologne. It is an especially good choice for younger guys who accidentally apply too much scent out of habit. :)

As expected gold is a nice smooth fragrance I haven't bought it yet but I will I smelled a sample of this today at carsons and it's nice as another reviewer said it's a year round casual scent it has a little fruity muskiness vibe to it it's a nice manly scent it's definitely worth checking out trust me if you can't find it in a store near you and thinking about blind buying I say go for it you won't be disappointed my girl and her buddies approve that this is a nice scent for a guy I like womens opinions when it comes to fragrances

I must admit, I do like trying celeb fragrances, and with this one fellas, you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

I just got GOLD JAY Z, it is a fruity opening but mixed with an herbal, spiciness which the three together balances nicely.

GOLD JAY Z is very masculine but not overtly so, noticeable, but refined and classy; perfect to wear into the office. GOLD JAY Z sillage, wears close to the skin to moderate, a good balance of refinement and notice ability but won't scare others away.

I feel GOLD JAY Z is a year round scent, and can be worn for ALL OCCASIONS; from office, to date, to dinner or for casual wear on the weekends...it fits in anywhere; and any age group can wear it as well.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ADDING THIS TO YOUR FRAGRANCE WOREDROBE!!!

the scent is great. but the longevity really sucks. It goes away within 15 minutes.
I wonder if their marketing/sales thoughts were that if you use it up faster you'll buy more?

If I can't even smell it on myself, let alone having someone else smell/notice it, I might as well just spray water.

I think this is nice.
I'm surprised to see the big dislike bar. Could be a "celebrity fragrance" thing. Could be I have crappy taste. Who knows?
Anyways, Jay Z Gold is rather fresh/ozonic on me but with some warm cardamom and myrrh. I don't get a strong vanilla presence, though there is a certain sweetness to this fragrance.
As with a lot of male fragrances it vaguely reminds me of a bunch of other stuff, but it is likable with discernible notes and not just a general "clean laundry", "shower gel" or "man musk" scent.

Very pedestrian and boring. Poor longevity and in essence a watered down Spicebomb. It will be at your local TJ Maxx within a month.

Sweet and pleasant, but didn't last long on my wrist and hand at all - about 1 1/2 hours. Also, there's nothing distinctive about it. If you're just looking for a "same-ole same-ole" fragrance that doesn't last long, give this a try.

wow, I'm surprised.

I tested it at Macy's this morning at 10:30 am. 2 sprays on my hand and 2 sprays on my wrist.

It's 11:48 pm now and I can still smell it.

This is now available at Macy's so if you're curious to sample it, check online to see if your local department store is caring it. I just asked the sales representative to open up a box to make a tester and she kindly obliged. Now I don't want to sound too critical but this fragrance is just nice. It's very light with a pleasant smell of fruit and really light wood (teak) and vanilla. It's almost like a body spray - I can't see this lasting more than 3-4hrs. While its nice enough, I was hoping for something with a greater identity or character. This isn't a cologne in my opinion. It's more just a pleasant smell. Maybe others will find it more interesting but I'm underwhelmed. The sales go to a good cause so if you find it enjoyable, as I know some will, then know your money will go to a good place.

Most detectable notes: grapefruit, blueberry, vanilla, cardamom, teak

@sharmap14 It actually is available. My local Dillard's has it for sale and I was able to get 3 samples of this stuff. I know the internet says it's coming out later this month, and I thought Dillard's was putting out this frag before the street date, but a lot of other people are saying they to have seen it at stores around them. But the review i did is not fake. I wore the frag for 3 days testing it out. and i still stand by what i say about this beautiful stuff.

I'm not sure why a lot of people are hating on this but I actually really enjoy this fragrance.

I get the smell of lemon at the top and smooth vanilla, some pink pepper and lavender are in the mid. In the dry down it really brings in that smooth vanilla and stays there. The vanilla is a big part of this fragrance.

It had okay projection and it lasted on my skin for about 5 hours. I've gotten 2 complaints in about the first 2 hours of wearing it which it projects a ton but after that it really comes closer to the skin

All and all this is a safe buy, it's not to daring but it is something nice to have.
The bottle is actually nice. I love the cap with its different textures and it is weighted well so it feels good in your hands. I'm also a sucker for white bottles and i enjoy the gold trimming that is in it, hence the name.
