M. Micallef Ylang in Gold Perfume Review

Since we are talking about luxury perfumery today, I want to show you  a beautiful   M. Micallef Ylang in Gold perfume.

About the Brand

M.Micallef brand was created in 1996 by Martine Micallef, who is a beauty and wellness specialist and a painter, and Geoffrey Nejman, financial consultant in fragrances in Grasse. The brand was actually created from their love story and the brand’s perfumes are now available in 39 countries.

About the Perfume

YLANG IN GOLD is the third fragrance of the JEWEL collection, after M.MICALLEF JEWEL FOR HER and JEW EL FOR HIM.

The bottle is hand decorated with Swarovski crystals designed exclusively for the brand.  YLANG GOLD actually won 2nd prize for an AN ARTISTIC PERFUME for for an extraordinary perfume concept at Global Art of Perfumery exhibition.

One more special thing about this perfume is that it should leave a light and delicate pearly golden dust made of golden powder.

 Notes

  • Head note: Tangerine orange, geranium, artemisia
  • Heart note: Ylang-ylang, rose, sandalwood, lily-of-the- valley, magnolia
  • Base note: Coconut, vanilla, musk.

My Opinion

I adore reading well written perfume reviews and can only dream about  writing something similar myself (Maybe one day).  But here is my opinion about the perfume anyway…

This is a sweet, warm and sensual fragrance, I can definitely pick up  coconut, vanilla, ylang-ylang and sandalwood notes. I can also  smell mint at some point which is a great touch, in my opinion. Ylang in Gold is luxurious and complex composition  which   is perfect for cool or cold  Autumn/Winter evenings, at least this is how I imagine it. I can’t really see myself wearing it  in Summer.

Although it is a bit too sweet for my taste, I do enjoy wearing it occasionally.   But I am sure that  a lot of girls would love it, especially those who love coconut.

The price for 100 ml EDP is €195
