I usually don't look back at threads that I've posted in, but sometime I do, that's why I didn't answer back. I'm more than happy to guide you into the world of gourmands!
First off, I need to know a little bit more about your taste. How sweet do you like you scents? What notes do you like? How strong do you want your fragrances to be? And, how much would you like to spend on a fragrance? I'm sorry to tell you that you won't be finding a lot of gourmands in the designer fragrance market. Good gourmands is usually best in the niche market.
I can see from your list that we share almost the same tastes, as you mentioned. The ones that I don't like from the list are;
Rochas Man (the lavender opening unfortunately throws it away completely, the rest is however good)
MJ Legend (this one stinks so bad. It doesn't match with my skin chemistry at all. It actually smells like dirty socks on me...)
So, as soon as the questions above is answered, we can started!
Hey Mike. I saw your posts on how your tastes haven't changed much and I think we share the same feelings. I like the tasty stuff! But I'm new to this whole thing and was wondering if you can give some advice on what frag I should be considering or at least what are your current favorites. I currently love and use...
