I have always been a massive fan of CK fragrances and have quite a few of them in my collection - and also the original CK ONE which was launched way back in 1994! Now CK is releasing a new limited edition version called CK ONE GOLD, which is, like the original, also a unisex or should we call it gender-neutral scent, and it draws inspiration from the myth of Kind Midas, who turned everything he touched into gold. Oh I wish!! 
According to CK ONE GOLD, "Be brave. Stand out from the crowd. Everything you touch exudes gold", and is described as a "seasonal, youthful scent of juicy and fresh woody character which supposedly combines the power of both sexes.

Let's first talk about the bottle. It comes in the iconic CK ONE bottle, but how stunning and unique is GOLD version with the gold dripping down from the neck to the body of the bottle. Nothing short of stunning, and so luxurious looking too.  

The notes in CK ONE GOLD are; 

  • Top Notes: Fig, bergamot and sage
  • Heart Notes: Neroli, jasmine and violet
  • Base Notes: Vetiver, patchouli and guaiac wood

These notes actually surprises me, as spin-offs are usually somewhat similar in many notes, and these notes are very different from the original CK ONE, which contains;

  • Top Notes: Pineapple, green notes, mandarin orange, papaya, bergamot, cardamom and lemon
  • Middle Notes: Nutmeg, violet, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose
  • Base Notes: Sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar and oakmoss

So apart from the jasmine in the base notes, all other notes are very different in the two scents!

The new CK ONE GOLD still has a juicy freshness and lightness thanks to the fig, but apart from that it is a slightly warmer and more sensual scent than the original, which I also find to be more of an aqua scent. Because of its freshness, CK ONE GOLD, is still the perfect spring and summer scent - and while I do see the jasmine, violet, neroli and patchouli to be more feminine notes, yet it is surprisingly still suitable for males, as it is as if the sage and woody notes appear to become more noticeable when my husband wears the scent.

The freshness of the scent, does meant that it sadly doesn't have the greatest of wear, so you do need to reapply mid-day to keep the scent noticeable.

But overall I really like this scent, it is so very different from the original, yet a refreshing change - and as it is limited edition beautiful scent is sure to fly off the shelves, and with its stunning unique golden bottle sure to become a collectors item, so make sure you check out before its too late!
