H.M. by Hanae Mori

Pros: To me this is a versatile almost fresh gourmand. The scent is a candy lemon/citrus type of smell. It reminds me of the trix cereal. I find this to project in waves so it never gets overly cloying to my nose. this is a very versatile gourmand, and I enjoy it.
Cons: Can smell cloying if smelled directly from the skin. A little feminine in the opening.

Fahrenheit by Christian Dior

I personally love this fragrance. This one is definitely in my top five of favorite fragrances of all time. As you all know it is a very green scent that combines almost a green and violet freshness with a more dirty petroleum smelling base. Depending on how the petro comes off of your skin, will determine if you love or hate this fragrance. For me it is a super unique classic that is one of a kind. And for some reason this fragrance has always given me MANY compliments.

A*Men / Angel Men by Thierry Mugler

Angel is a love or hate fragrance. I happened to love it. It is a very sweet long-lasting gourmand that combines chocolate, coffee and patchouli with a strong tar note opening. in other words its not just chocolate and sweet, but it also has a dirty vibe to it which makes it more masculine. I personally enjoy this one. It lasts forever and projects like no other. This could be a benchmark for gourmands.
My rating.

Polo Double Black by Ralph Lauren

This is a nice mango based scent that combines sweetness with pepper. Think of a fresh mango with black pepper being sprinkled on top. I enjoy this one.

Polo Black by Ralph Lauren

Not sure why so many thumbs down on this site. Polo black is a very fresh and pleasant scent to me. I really enjoy it. Its clean smelling, has a touch of the ice mango and is very versatile. I have received many compliments from this fragrance, and I am a fan. Totally underrated.

Pros- A very clean fresh scent that is very versatile and gets many compliments.
Cons- The RL name will never get too much hype on these communities. A little pricey. Nothing that unique or super original. Spotty longevity with some people.
