ive heard so many different things, like...
1. "it smells edible" - makes the most sense, but thats extremely subjective. but the problem i see, atleast to me, is that any citrus scent is a gourmand then. lemons, oranges, and limes are all foods, no?
2. contain a coffee note - yeah its technically food, but (i know someone will say they do this, but its not "common" per say) most people dont eat coffee straight up
3. contains chocolate - makes sense too, but ive yet to smell straight up chocolate in any "gourmands". the closest ive gotten is a dark chocolate smell at some point in A*Men's drydown
if im missing anything, dont hesitate to tell me
