The original Euphoria perfume is an absolute favorite of mine. It’s a beautifully crafted scent with sweet and heady notes like Pomegranate and Amber. The sensuous fragrance created by Ann Gottlieb is celebrating it’s 10 anniversary this year.
There have been quite a few versions of this including a lighter summer version – Endless Euphoria and a 2015 version – Euphoria Essence. Euphoria Gold for men and women is a limited edition released in 2014, exclusively for the Middle East region. The fragrances are described as luxurious, powerful and addictive. The beautiful black opaque glass and matte gold bottles (both available in 100ml) reflect the opulence of the region. The outer packaging feature a detailed, embossed Middle Eastern inspired pattern for that added touch of luxury.
Euphoria Liquid Gold for women (eau de parfum)
This is woody-oriental fragrance is described as strong, sensual and mysterious.
The top note contains Cinnamon – which adds a touch of spice to this scent. While the heart note of Black Orchid (an iconic note that’s unique to Euphoria fragrences) is both sensual and feminine. The Sandalwood base note adds warmth and depth to the fragrance. These notes together create a spicy but sweet scent with a lasting silage. It’s almost like a walk through a Middle Eastern souk. Where the scent of spices , amber, oud, honey and sweets intermingle to create a intoxicating aroma.
Even though Oud is not listed among the notes, but that’s the strongest note I smell. It’s not your average oud scent though, it’s much more mellow and sweeter. This is an excellent choice if you prefer oud based fragrances but detest the traditional heavy perfumes.
In my opinion this warm and sexy fragrance that can be worn day or night. The lasting power is around 5 hours and by the that time it dries down to a faint sweet, woody scent.
Euphoria Liquid Gold for Men (eau de parfume)
This spicy offering from Calvin Klein is described as a strong, masculine fragrance with a contemporary twist.
With top notes of Black Peper, heart notes of Saffron and base notes of Sandalwood, Euphoria Liquid Gold is one of the sexiest men’s fragrances I’ve tried from the house of Calvin Klein ! When sprayed, it has that sparkling freshness that most CK perfumes have but then quickly dries down to heady oud scent (not listed among the notes).
As I’ve written in my previous perfume reviews, I love wearing men’s fragrances (specially ones with wood & Oakmoss notes). So it should come as no surprise that I adore this perfume. To be honest, I prefer this version even more than the above mentioned female version. On my skin the Oud notes come out very quickly and lingers for a long time. And just like it’s female version the Oud notes are light and sensual. However, the lasting power is much more stronger (around 10 hours !).
Even my husband, who detests heavy, spicy perfumes, really loves this scent ! And it smells so lovely on him too 🙂
If you are like me and love wood based fragrances, give this a sniff and see 😀 And given the ultra luxe packaging, both fragrances would make a great gift.
Have you tried any of the perfumes from the Euphoria range ? What’s your favorite ?
