I love the perfume bottle, it's gold with a black cap. The reason I bought this fragrance is because I was told it smelled like a fresh cut Lily. While it does have a lily note it is proceeded by this rancid grass scent that throws the whole thing for me. Might pass it along to my sister or something, because this definitely does not agree with my chemistry.

What a beautiful masterpiece this is!
It caresses the skin with molten gold nectar
and meaty Casablanca lilies. I am totally
blown away by its heady, rich array of notes.
I get more lily than jasmine and just enough pepper to
lift it out of the ordinary. There is a slight damp, vegetal
note that I also smelled in Cacharel's Eden and it makes
the EDP more …

I love love love this rich, ambered lily. There's simply nothing else out there that's like it. It's strong, a little fetid around the edges, like real tropical jungles. It's slightly animalic and only a tiny bit sweet. My first go-round with Gold was not good. It was just too weird, too strong. But over time, I started craving it. When I heard it was discontinued, I bought a …Read more

Ummm, it's getting better than the beginning, but...eeeeee...no...not for me. The top notes seem to smell of plastic and leather (ack- leather doesn't smell good to me!), but it dries down to eventually day lillies with a leather/plastic undertones. I'll try it again in a few days and see if the smell seems better on me then.

I you love the smell of lilies, you will love this much underated lovely. I really liked te lily notes in Vanilla Galante but flound it much too fleeting on my skin. DKG is a stayer. It is quite a heavy hitter so careful not to overspray, but the amber in the drydown is warm and lovely. However the Casablanca lillies are the star imo and make this a truly beautiful scent. Sometimes, I just …Read more

I just purchae sed Gold from Ebay for cheap. I probably would not have bought it for full price, although I am generally pleased with DKNY perfumes (I love Cashmere Mist). First, you have to love the smell of lilies. If you don't, this fragance is not for you. It is lily, lily and more lily. However, after ten minutes it really softens and you can smell the other notes. It is …Read more

(EDP) Best unsniffed buy, ever. I ordered a bottle of this based on notes. I love the smell of Casablanca lilies, reminds me of my most recent wedding day because I carried a bouquet of them. This is mainly lily, though I do get the edge of clove and pollen at the start. It definitely does last! My skin is a true test of that, and Gold goes the distance. I get no sweetness at all, just fresh …Read more

Oh my! This is it... Donna Karan Gold EDP is AMAZING!! Lily, cream and vanilla. BIG BOLD MADONNA LILY!!!! White, creamy, a little spicy and magical. I can smell Lily and more LILY.... 'Hello my name is Susanna and I am a LILY addict." I admitt it when it comes to Lily --- I don't want Lily of the Valley -- I don't want soft.. I want BOLD deliciousness. Donna Karan …Read more

First off: I'm a lily-aholic. Basically, if you add lily, I will buy it. Or at least go out of my way to sniff it. But with Donna Karan Gold, I bought my bottle online unsniffed since I'd heard it compared to Frederic Malle Lys Mediterranee, which I was LUSTING over at the time. And suffice it to say, I was not disappointed. LM has that great salty note that makes it so distinctive …Read more

I feel that in fragrance, as with other trends, things feel right at some points (high-waist trousers, boot-cut jeans, mullets and prog rock) and not at others. I’m sick of reading this new buzz-word, ‘on-trend’, in magazines (it’s seriously overused) but I understand that it’s talking about the ebb and flow of ‘what is hot, NOW’. Right now, in fragrance, it feels okay to wear aquatic, oceanic …Read more
