We’ve read the reviews on this Manly Man eau de toilette but now we can confirm that Jay Z Gold is hands down one of the best scents available for the fellas right now.

Here are the details about Jay Z Gold:

jay z gold fragranceA new standard of measure, Gold Jay Z is inspired by an Icon: a fragrance destined to be a legend. The scent exudes a golden freshness, perfected through a layered blend of tailored modern style and refined with a gilded, noble sensuality. It opens with the brightness of grapefruit and ginger warmed with cardamom. At the heart, a masculine vetiver and the spice of pink pepper balance the flora of lavender and violet leaf. The base of rich amber and smoky myrrh is tempered with teak wood and bourbon vanilla.

Grapefruit, Ginger, Cardamom, Vetiver, Pink Pepper, Lavender, Violet Leaf, Amber, Myrrh, Teak Wood, Bourbon Vanilla.
White Fougere.


But, before we get into the smell lets dive right into the appearance of Mr. Carter’s first fragrance. Jay Z Gold comes comes in none other than a gold box that has a cube detailing which best visible when reflected against the light.

The actual spray comes in a white bottle with a gold top that’s inscribed with words like pride, confidence, strength, and power –all words that describes man we say on the November 2013 issue of Vanity Fair Magazine– and the name of the cologne appears on the center of the bottle in all caps.

So  the verdict on the scent— Jay Z Gold is very rich –thanks to a fusion of notes that include yellow ginger, golden amber, grapefruit, lavender, bourbon vanilla to name an few– and masculine. You can grab your own bottle of Hov’s new scent at Nordstrom.
