They all smell pretty nice; the Fresh Lily & Musk smells like, well, lily with some musk, the Spicy Clove & Amber smells warm and slightly spicy, the Balsam Fir & Bergamot smells green and fresh. Again, they all smell nice, they're not overpowering and I don't think any of them smell "old lady perfume" like at all and they don't smell fake or artificial really. However, none of the scents last!
The Balsam Fir & Bergamot seemed to last a little longer than the other two, but if you want to use them as an actual scent beyond a massage, well after a few minutes, they all smell the same...a warmish, very subtly spice scent (not like the scent of the Spicy Clove & Amber). Uhm, hah, I don't even know if that's the right way to describe it, it's just warm oil scent left on the skin. And yes, all three smell like that after a few minutes and the initial scent fades (plus the only thing you really smell when sniffing the oil in the bottle is the carrier oils, and that's basically what you're left with, the scent of the carrier oils). It's not a bad scent, just the scents the oils are supposed to be don't last.
I use all three primarily as body oil/moisturizer after bathing/showering. As I said above, the Balsam Fir & Bergamot scent lasted a bit longer than the other two, but I rubbed the Fresh Lily & Musk into one arm and by the time I was rubbing it into my other one, the scent was gone on the first. Sad because I liked the scent. And honestly very sad that the scent doesn't last for how expensive the oils are and how "luxurious" they're supposed to be. Get one if you're really set on getting the LELO "luxury" item. If you just want a nice scented massage oil, get something else. I absolutely LOVE
the Jimmyjane Afterglow candles. Yeah, they're candles, yeah you have to light them and WAIT for the oil for a bit so they're not the best for spontaneous massages, but all the ones I have smell AMAZING and the scent LASTS and the oil they produce is awesome as well (I have almost all the candles, regular and special edition, and use them mostly, again, as body moisturizers).
Oh, and as for the gold flakes/glow from the LELO oils? The Spicy Amber & Clove has the most gold in it and made my skin shimmer...for a bit, until it rubbed off on clothes. The other two? They barely have any gold flakes and I couldn't discern any "glow" whatsoever (other than the normal "glow" from having oil rubbed into your skin).
