    Here is a link to a discussion regarding Chandler Burr's article on gourmands in October's O magazine.

    The original article is what inspired my leap into the world of fragrance!

(Will somebody remind me when it's New Year's Eve so I'll know when to begin my resolution?) Okay ... going to repair this thread's title now. Thanks, my Lady Tao.

    Most gourmands, or fragrances that has a food note, are most commonly chocolate or vanilla. However, I consider fruity notes to be in the category as well. Wouldn't you say? Therefore I will wear Daim Blond by SL for its candied fruit and apricot notes. I adore this fragrance. I simply cannot wear vanilla in any shape or form.

    Go ahead and order whatever dessert you crave, Scento. If you can't abide vanilla, no harm. We also have a Sniff 'n' Speak devoted to fruity fragrances in May.

    For gourmand SnS, I chose to wear something new:

    Lann-Ael

    (Angel Heath in Bréton language) from the French Lostmarc'h line. I am surprised: a delicate comfort scent, only moderately sweet, redolent of immortelle, baked apples in lemon sauce and a cup of hot milk flavoured with vanilla pods.IMO, this is very wearable, and not only for an armchair-plaid-good book session in the midst of the winter.

    Oooh that sounds interesting LIB.
    These days are useful because they challenge what we believe about fragrances. I only thought of vanilla and chocolate as gourmand, but this has expanded my terms of reference enormously. I found myself flicking through all my bottles, samples, solids, decants and minis and realised that actually I had a few to choose from.

    In the end I went with Tesco's Finest Fig, Almond and Cassis
    This might provoke a few smiles among UK readers and those who know Tesco is a huge supermarket chain.

    It's interesting to wear a perfume I think of as for high summer in the winter; it opens up new dimensions to it. It's a fragrance that doesn't change or develop much; a straightforward fig-leaf note is rounded out slightly by a little almond but I get no cassis.

    I find it fresh and green but also rich, which I suppose is the nature of fig.

    I found some Jo Malone samples and if this calms down or I have a bath later I'll try Pomegranate Noir as my SOTE.

    Have a good World Aids Day everyone. x

    Mmm you all smell delicious!
    I had a lot to choose from but as I'm riddles with cold virus, I thought it best to go with something I know Angel in the extrait. The EDP can sometimes smell a bit harsh - not so the extrait, which is much softer. There's more of an amber undertone and a touch of honey, and it lasts far longer, though it sits very close to my skin. If any of you haven't had much luck with the EDP, it's worth checking out the extrait if you can find it.

    For today's Gourmand Sniff & Speak, I am reveling in the lovely and supremely unexepected floral-and-woody gourmand (who'd have thought such a thing was possible, but it IS!) Michael Storer Yvette.

    Notes: Muget, tarragon, vanilla, white chocolate, oakmoss, ambrette, precious woods.

    Starts off almost herbally floral (tarragon and muget right there in your face), making me think, "Gourmand? Not this scent." And then the dessert notes start sneaking in there... Until it gets almost too sweet, before warming down to a luscious blend of vanilla/chocolate/pale floral/wood.

    I definitely feel delicious in this.

    You know you don't have to rationalize anything to this crowd!

    Guerlain Angelique Noire
    Now whom do I thank for this half sample in my possession? I believe Musse gets credit/blame for starting a little hankering in my soul. At $6.50 for just a 1ml sample from TPC, I'm challenging the practicality of liking AN, but as I said above, there is no rationalizing, so why try?

    AN opens with the unique herbal scent of Angelica (makes me smile extra broadly because this plant is native to Wisconsin; plus, it backs up my theory that I'm partial to herbal frags). The vanilla is ever present, and it contains a real sweetness, but it doesn't go over the top for me (most Guerlains work with my bitter hide). What makes this $200-a-bottle vanilla from Guerlain's L'Art et la Matière collection special is its softness. Just as expensive sheets with a high thread count feel extra silky and quality down pillows feel incredibly cushiony, AN's molecules just slide across the olfactory sensors.

    I have no other prominent vanilla frags in my wardrobe. I guess I was just waiting for the right one to come along.

    P.S. A shout out to my newest acquaintance and fellow historic-home restorationist, DeeOlive. Hey there, kiddo!

    LMAO I can think of a couple of frags that deserve that use and placement. One also has Sugar in the name, come to think of it.

    And I join the swelling chorus wondering what defines a gourmand. Obviously vanilla alone doesn't qualify or most Guerlains would belong as it's a component of Guerlinade, I believe. Then some Compoir Sud Pacifique Vvanilla scents almost demand being a ingrediant in a cookie batch or cake batter.

("Gourmand" is anything I wanna put in my mouth - right??!!) ... yumsters!! Am thinking I'd like something berry-ish but tart to go with this.....any ideas??

It also overlaps but does not always include perfumes featuring fruit notes. The key to whether a scent is foody or gourmand is whether the note causes an involuntary salivary response and / or conjures images / associations with food in the minds of those smelling the scent.
    OK - using Moondeva's definition, I've tested the following scents:

    L'Artisan Piment Brulant:

    Notes (from Luckyscent): Red pepper, soft and creamy chocolate, vanilla, cloves and poppy, hints of musk and amber.

    What I'm supposed to think of: Aztec Chocolate (according to Luckyscent).

    What I wind up thinking of: Red Bell Pepper morphing to Chicken Mole. I like chicken mole, just not necessarily on me.

    Parfumerie General Un Crime Exotique

    Notes (from Luckyscent): Chinese osmanthus, gingerbread, tea, cinnamon, star anise, mate absolute, vanilla sugar, South Sea Island sandalwood.

    What I'm supposed to think of: Gingerbread (according to Luckyscent).

    What I wind up thinking of: Oranges studded with cloves and cinnamon sticks to start. Then it becomes what Mom used to call "russian tea" - Tang, Nestea Instant Tea (in Lemon), and stale pumpkin spices. Sadly - this goes sour on me some days after 30 minutes or so.

    Serendipity 3 Serendipitous

    Notes (from Luckyscent): Cocoa, Tahitian Vanilla, Blood Orange

    What I'm supposed to think of: Chocolate Truffles (possibly laced with Grand Marnier (according to Luckyscent).

    What I wind up thinking of: Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows. This scent is very linear and comforting. Maybe not as exotic as chocolate truffles with Grand Marnier, but it works for me.

    For this Sniiff n' Speak, I chose Yves Saint Laurent's Body Kouros. (Thanks, knightowl!)

    First, a bit of history: Body Kouros is notable as the last YSL men's fragrance before Tom Ford took over the design of Yves Saint Laurent ready-to-wear and Chantal Roos (who was responsible for the success of Opium and Paris) returned to YSL Beaute from Beaute Prestige International (where she successfully launched the Jean Paul Gaultier and Issey Miyake brands into the fragrance world).

    Now, onto the actual scent: Despite its name, it has nothing in common with its animalic brother. Instead, it has many gournand notes... nutmeg, eucalyptus, cinnamon, and caramel, among others (according to our perfumed friends at Osmoz). The result is similar to another popular men's gourmand, Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin, but softer and minus the anise note that made the Lolita Lempicka irritating to my nose. The end result is quite delicious.

    One final note: One could only wonder if YSL men's fragrances had evolved like this that they would have been more successful... M7 and Rive Gauche Pour Homme were never very popular in the USA, and the YSL brand only re-established its footing in the men's market this past year with the success of the rather ho-hum (but very popular) L'Homme.

    Today I am wearing Immortelle l'Amour, by Ayala Moriel , now my favorite gourmand scent, right up there with Aimez Moi by Caron. It is warm and sweet without being too sweet, dark and invigorating like a great cup of espresso with a touch of whipped cream on top for a hint of sweet, again not TOO much sweetness. I also love that the ingredients are natural. This scent is comforting, wearable and gives me a sense of well being.

    To top it off a friend of mine went to the Culinary Institute and brought me back some goodies, which I will sample and savor in my Immortelle l'Amour in honor of Gourmand Saturday.

    Dawn Spencer Hurwitz, Piment et Chocolat for me. We're getting our first major snowstorm today, so this is perfect for staying cozy indoors.

    "Top notes: black pepper, paprika, pimento berry (allspice), red chili
    Heart notes: cinnamon, clove, nutmeg
    Base notes: cocoa beans, dark chocolate"

    -- notes quoted from RedRazz's review

    Most chocolate scents that I had tried before this one ended up smelling like Cocoa Puffs cereal on me. The pepper & other spices in this one temper the sweetness and keep it smelling warm and a little mysterious (makes me think of Vianne's Chocolaterie).

    Well - the closest I could get was MPG Bahiana

    According to MPG it features “Brazilian orange, caïpirinha lemon, yellow mandarin, tagette, green leaf, rosewood, gaiac wood, elemi, amber, musk, and coconut”

    I figured the coconut made it acceptable in this category - if not - no matter - the first thing that DH said this morning BEFORE he had a cuppa java (normally says nothing before 2 cups) was "You smell NICE"

    That's all I needed to hear - this will now translate into a full bottle.
    Even if he hadn't made that earthshaking remark - this would go into my buy list.

    I was prepared not to like it - I like my coconut in macaroons or on top of cake icing. Never figgered I'd wear it. And I don't really own anything very citrusy either.

    This is also supposed to be for warm weather - I'm sitting here in a hat and gloves indoors (cause part of my roof is off) and I don't care - this is so refreshing!!!

    I am a novice scent describer with an untrained nose so bear with me.

    Hmmm adjectives:
    top notes: tart, crisp, sprightly, spicy, peppery, alive, sunny.

    Had to look up "tagette" - turned out to be a lemony smelling flower, but this has not much lemon for me - smells more like a mango-lime combo.

    As it is drying down the amber/musk/coconut warms it more - have a feeling this isn't going to have a lot of longevity, but I am sniffing me and it smells yummy.

    It actually does not remind me of Bahia at all - it smells more like lively, faster paced Rio de Janeiro. I think that Bahia, would have a much lusher riper scent with a darker sensuousness. But it awakens feelings of "Saudade" (homesickness) to be again in Brazil

    The green and yellow notes do match the colors of the Brazilian flag

    For the S'n'S Saturday I'm wearing Angel edp.The topnotes of the scent is dominated by a sparkling,but slightly sour/bitter quality.It reminds me of mint and grapefruit.This note slowly develops into something with a little bit more depth.The sparklin g quality is still there,but the citrus is gone.Not sure what causes this effect,but the drydown feels a lot "thicker" and slightly sweet.There's defenitely patchoulie, bergamot and something sweet that I think is honey and vanilla.This scent varies a lot from day to day on me.Today I find it similar to burned sugar,but other days it's defenitely chocolate of the kind you find in those Advent calendars. All in all it's a real silage monster,but it never fails to give me selfesteem.A little goes a long way,though.

    My sotd is HYPNOTIC POISON. This is a lovely musk, vanilla oriental that I always find soft, sensual and never cloying. It is also one of the few gourmands that I can wear really well!

    Sote will be SHALIMAR. I love the tonka bean and incense paired with loads of scrumptious vanilla in this one. Still one of my all-time favorite classics!

    Dee Olive you may be responsible for starting my next major 'lemming'. I had a baaaaad case of lust for a bottle of Creed Virgin Island Water all summer after I got a decant. It gave me the most enormous coconut craving; I was astonished how many frags use coconut as a note. But only 'the real thing' absolutely hit the spot. I may cave in next summer and just save up for a bottle. (That's one reason I didn't wear it today - that stuff is dangerous!)

    The figs are still going. Admittedly, I did have a very good squirt this morning (OK, maybe more of a shower in the stuff). But it's still exactly as it was this morning - very green, very figgy.

    However, I'm sniffing my wrists a lot this afternoon as I had to try Bulgari Blue Notte Femme, having heard about the foody notes in it. It's not as sweet as i'd expected and in truth I can't make any elements out, but it's very nice. Maybe I can smell a tiny bit of chocolate.

    Or maybe that's residual cocoa powder from my baking session with my Chick this afternoon. She's been desperate to cook pancakes for days so that's what we had for supper. After baking a big chocolate cake. Influenced by the perfumes I wear? Me?

    Un Crime Exotique

    THE perfect spicy gourmand.
    Sakecat, I am sorry it didn't work for you, but .... more for me!
    On my skin, it isn't a mere gingerbread concoction. Anise is very prominent and the mate adds a tiny bitter accent, with the other spices blending in so smoothly.... and a splendid apricot-scented floral hint dwells in its heart. Agreed, it isn't an easy scent, especially if one wishes to wear it when it's NOT holiday season. But I have a suspicion it will be my next full bottle from Pierre.
    Notes: Chinese osmanthus, gingerbread, tea, cinnamon, star anise, mate absolute, vanilla sugar, South Sea Island sandalwood.

    Wordbird, you and your lady need to come over to our house! Baked a "checkerboard" cake for DS#2 (birthday was earlier this week, his party is tonight), and our Sunday morning breakfast is usually pancakes (with silken tofu snuck in for health reasons)... You'll never be able to taste the difference!

    My Yvette is drying down to a gorgeous foody/woody delight. Yum!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
