    Kicking myself............I should have ordered a sample of L'ombre Fauve whilst I was at it.

    Interesting to see the thread rejuvenated. I own a full bottle of Aomassai now and, coincidentally, I am wearing it today. I have not changed my mind, this is IMO the best gourmand fragrance I have ever experienced.

    I haven`t tested this fragrance, but I`m sure it smells good. But do you want to smell like some food? I love caramels and licorice, but I`m not sure that I want to smell like it! ;-)

    I have no way to describe Aomassai but it's a cool/grey day here today and I wore it to the store and I received an enthusiastic compliment/inquiry (from a guy no less) on it, even wrote down Parfumerie Generale at his request. I think it's the ultimate PG, barely nudging out Bois Blond and L'ombre Fauve which can both grow a bit tiresome as they wear (at least to me). If you've yet to try Aomassai I strongly recommend sampling it. There is an edible quality to it but I don't know if I'd consider it a gourmand. To me it is a very intriguing scent that draws attention and curiosity

    It's one of PG's best scents IMO.

    Well said Flouris. Aomassai brings the gourmand genre to a completely higher level...A much underrated fragrance and one of the most interesting takes in its cathegory.

    It has been a while since I've smelled this one, but my memory tells me that I mentally filed it in the 'cake batter' genre (like Montale's Chocolate Greedy without the cocoa)

    I like PG though. His stuff is weird in a good way!

    As soon as I made the connection with IKEA's scented vanilla candles, I couldn't think of anything else upon smelling Aomassai. With that said, it's not particulary bad (nor are the candles), but as with L'Artisan's famous Vanilia, this one didn't rock my boat.
