Puredistance Gold: Paying it Forward




Paying it Forward: (in) Puredistance Gold

This post is a part of a joint giveaway, held by Undina (Undina’s Looking Glass), Vanessa (Bonkers about Perfume ), Lucas (Chemist in the Bottle) and Portia (Australian Perfume Junkies)

From Undina: In this age of advertising in social networks and working through influencers, vloggers and instagrammers, it is hard to justify spending marketing resources on a handful of“old school” bloggers with quirky blogging styles and limited outreach via followers or organic search. A very few keep doing that through the years.
Puredistance is one brand that was extremely friendly and generous with bloggers. Late last year Puredistance sent a travel spray of their newest perfume Puredistance Gold. I tied and I liked Puredistance Gold.
We decided to share – to make sure it reaches more people.

Puredistance Gold

Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Italian green mandarin, Calabrian bergamot, La Réunion pink pepper, Moroccan rosemary, Madagascan clove
Heart: Indian jasmine absolute, Spanish cistus absolute, Moroccan geranium, Madagascar cinnamon absolute
Base: Honduras styrax, Laotian benzoin, Myrrh, Indonesian patchouli, Green madagascar vanilla, Venezuelan tonka bean absolute, Castoreum absolute, Haitian vetiver

A gloriously fizzy citrus opens, I say fizzy but not like a 21st century celebuscent. Here we have the lustre of golden dawn tempered by shadows of spices and the clarion call of white flowers. I make it sound overly dramatic, it’s not. Puredistance Gold is satin smooth and flawlessly blended.

The heart becomes a sensual incense. Yep, I never thought those words would become a pair. Here we have it. Incense, patchouli, vanilla are all tempered by resins and animalics. A light sweaty breathiness that underpins the heart and dry down, giving this unearthly beauty humanity.

If you are all about your fragrance being an introduction as or before you enter a room then I double you’ll be moved by Puredistance Gold. We are talking seriously refined understatement, yet so unusual that it is a statement of its own. It says to me, “I have no need of gauche display. My perfection and grace are enough. A perfect cover for our imperfect selves, how better to trick the world than smell like this”

  2. Thanks for the opportunity.
    I would love to wear this on one of those many days when I feel overwhelmed; the idea of putting on a sleek, sensual veil to appear refined and elegant sounds like a perfect match for me. A fragrance to provide a little breathing space.


  3. I don’t know how to compete with the previous answers! They made me laugh out loud!
    I love Pure Distance Sheiduna and White. I have never sniffed Gold, it sound beautiful. I’d probably wear it all day from snuggled on the couch with my pup, to going for walk outdoors, to the gym, out for dinner. Exactly how I wear all fragrance, all day long!

  5. Those who have tried Puredistance Gold, does it remind them of vintage Opium or Amouage Gold as some online reviews are implying?


  6. Take me on holiday to Thailand with you guys and I shall wear it there 🤣 If you don’t take me, then I’ll be stuck here mowing 6 foot high grass whilst getting eaten alive by mozzies and whatever else is lurking in my grass. Happy travels, c

  7. It sounds divine! I’d wear it in my cleavage, on my throat, anywhere and everywhere!
    I’d wear it when I wanted to be noticed, a place that invites conversation (and a compliment on my perfume), art gallery, museum, smooth jazz club perhaps… I’d find somewhere!
