Rochas Man is pretty awesome.
Hi guys, I'm on my way exploring the gourmand road, I have Vanilla Lace by VS to start with, Le Male and then LLaM. So now what's next for me?
Rochas Man is pretty awesome.

I'm with Cologne Junkie, Rochas Man is my favorite gourmand.
how's the longevity of the colognes suggested here especially Rochas and A*Men?

Jason, give Body Kouros a try. It may be better for the "cooler" months, however. Good take on licorice and it is somewhat related to Au Masculin, but surely different.
Try Hanae Mori EDP (keeps gourmand notes longer than the EDT, which keeps the base longer), Rochas Man, and Fresh Cannabis Santal. If you're absolutely in love with the anise/licorice note in Lolita Lempica, I'd consider Kenzoair, but it's really not a gourmand.

I've found that gourmands can become nauseating even if you like them at first. One of the least nauseating I've found is Amour de Cacao (which might be classified as a "feminine" but is at least unisex if A*Men is a "masculine"). The worst, for me, is the combination of strong lavender and a gourmand element (usually vanilla and/or chocolate). You have been forewarned! LOL.

A*Men and L`Instant de Guerlain.
What about New Haarlem?
Try Bond No. 9 lexington Ave or Kenzo Jungle
Both are very interesting and unisex
How about Bvlgari Black or Jaipur? Note that all mentioned fragrances (LL, Bvlgari Black, Jaipur, Body Kouros) were created by Annick Menardo.
Very surprised no ones mentioned Dior Homme or Dior Homme Intense yet.

If you like Anise that's well-blended, check out Cartier Must ph or the Essence version. You can not go wrong.
"I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

My classics: Dior Homme EdT, YSL Rive Gauche PH, Helmut Lang Cuiron, L'Occitane Neroli (vintage), Davidoff Zino, L'Occitane Eau des Baux
Wow, there are so many things for me to try. Thank guys . I think I refer the creamy sweet vanilla, chocolate, etc effect on the gourmand than the spicy anise, cinnamon, etc notes
how about Shalimar?
try the best of them all, ie, animale animale.
