Lattafa Ansaam Gold Review

✓ Pros

  • Excellent dupe of Parfums de Marly Oriana
  • Long-lasting
  • Inexpensive

✗ Cons

  • Some find it synthetic (I only pick this up briefly in the opening and only when smelling it very closely)

What Does Lattafa Ansaam Gold Smell Like?

Lattafa Ansaam Gold is an incredibly accurate dupe of Parfums de Marly Oriana. It is sweet, powdery, and fruity, fluffy marshmallow perfection.

Ansaam Gold opens with strong and sweet fruity, vanilla citrus notes. The sweet, powdery, musk is equally as strong in the opening.

As it dries down, the light floral notes peek through, and the sweet raspberry note blends into the vanilla musk. 

Overall, Ansaam Gold is a fruity, very sweet, musky, fluffy, and powdery marshmallow fragrance, very similar to Parfums de Marly Oriana. 

  • Top Notes: Mandarin Orange, Pear
  • Middle Notes: Sweet Notes, Jasmine, Rose
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Musk, Raspberry

Performance

Lattafa Ansaam Gold has above-average performance, with over 12 hours of longevity and decent projection for many hours. 

This is a fragrance where I can spray it first thing in the morning and still smell it by the time I start getting ready for bed.

When to Wear Lattafa Ansaam Gold

Lattafa Ansaam Gold is a very versatile fragrance. Although it is a strong performer, it isn’t overpowering, and it tends to be a crowd-pleaser.

Ansaam Gold is wearable for any occasion, from casual outings to the office to nights out.

Price

As with many Lattafa fragrances, Ansaam Gold is very inexpensive. This is a high-quality fragrance at a very low price. 

Lattafa Ansaam Gold vs Parfums de Marly Oriana

Let’s compare Lattafa Ansaam Gold vs Parfums de Marly Oriana in terms of scent, performance, and price.

Scent

Opening: The openings of both Ansaam Golf and Oriana are very similar. Ansaam Gold has a faint synthetic vibe at the very beginning of the opening, and Oriana is more robust and juicy in its immediate marshmallow orange sweetness.

Dry down: In the dry down, these two fragrances remain incredibly alike. An hour into the dry down, I don’t think anyone would be able to tell the difference between the two.

Winner: Parfums de Marly Oriana, but barely!

Performance

Ansaam Gold is far superior to Oriana in terms of longevity and projection.  

Winner: Lattafa Ansaam Gold!

Price

Lattafa Ansaam Gold can be found for a fraction of the price of Parfums de Marly Delina.

Winner: Lattafa Ansaam Gold!

Final Verdict: Lattafa Ansaam Gold is an absolutely fantastic dupe for Parfums de Marly Oriana. The scent profile is spot-on, the performance is superior, and the price is incredibly low. Ansaam Gold is a win!!
