Created in 2015, Black Gold is the premier installation of the Gold Trilogy series, epitomising the height of luxury with all absolutes, oudh, patchouli, amber. A labor of love for Ormonde Jayne, Black Gold was years in the making due to the long and often fraught journey to find the very best qualities of its prime components. Linda Pilkington wouldn’t rest until she had located a Mysore sandalwood oil that was 20 times better than its nearest competitors. The first indelible impression of Black Gold is that it is both, an elegant and sensual perfume. Black Gold is intensely constructed, a masterpiece of sultry refined and cultivated nuances. Its immediate appeal is entirely devoted to being fearless, cool and provocative enough to tempt one into forbidden waters. It is a beguiling fragrance that enchants with a whisper and fascinates with a unique set of ingredients. Black Gold itself is quietly majestic, a scent of sweet, subdued darkness.
