    santal noble yes good 1!

    i wonder if egoiste is as good as habit rouge. perhaps a younger version since it was a 90's fragrance.

    maybe le male? or is that already considered a gourmand?

    Egoiste is fantastic. I am talking about the original Egoiste, NOT the Platinum Egoiste (totally different). IMO, this scent is sort of Guerlain-ish, very rich, complex, multi-layered...it's best worn in cool weather and lightly applied. One of my favorites.

    I get some gourmand notes from two ultra-classic male frags: Mouchoir de Monsieur by Guerlian and Caron pour un Homme.

    Nobile and Acier? I would never think of these as gourmands. Aren't gourmands supposed to have some food-like notes? I don't get any from these two.

    Doesn't Acier have fruit, including bananas? I thought of that one too.
    Also +1 for Animale Animale, which I think predated A*Men.

    Supposedly it does, but the metallic notes prevent me from possibly thinking of this as a gourmand which I believe is more accurately classified as such due to predominant food-like top notes.

    I'd say the original women's Must (1981). I find Azzaro's Pure Lavender to largely be a weaker version of Must (the drydown).
