I love the gourmand drydown of L'Instant de Guerlain.
I very recently had the chance to sample Bond No. 9's New Haarlem and man.. what a fascinating gourmand it is.. it smells intoxicating.. almost like cocaine.. it held me in a trance... my hand automatically went to my wallet, to flip it open and drop the cash onto the glass counter.. but you see, I successfully resisted it and lived to tell the story *whew*
Now I know that its an expensive copy of Rochas Man and to some extent Angel, but whatever.. I really loved how it smelled.. which now brings me to a gourmand which I already own.. its Escada Magnetism for her, yup you read it right.. for HER!
The Escada shares the EXACT same burnt sugar accord with New Haarlem, the major difference being that New Haarlem is Coffee + Caramel w/Burnt Sugar and the Escada is Fresh Bakery aromas + Cakes w/burnt sugar.. even if it is marketed towards women I can easily see Men using it.. it's very unisex IMO.
So the next time you pass by any frag counters, make it a point to hop over to the womens' counter and smell Escada Magnetism... I think gourmand lovers would drool over it as I did

L'Instant de Guerlain and a gourmand drydown? I must have missed something!
I am not into gourmands. The onle one I love is bleeker street. Although it is labled as a gourmand, it doesn't remind me of one whatsoever.
Aquolina's Blue Sugar does not get enough play on the board.
(IMHO, Blue Sugar is what A*men could/should have been.)
