    Gourmand is not my fave, I have a problem overlapping, but I like these:

    1. Plus Que Jamais by Guerlain
    2. Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens
    3. Farnesiana by Caron
    4. Amber Narguile by Hermes
    5. Patchouli by Jalaine (maybe not gourmand, but it makes me want to eat it, so it qualifies for me)

    oh and I will add my new Kus Kus from New Orleans, which gives me a comfort foodie fix somehow.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    In no particular order:

    1. Jeux de Peau/Serge Lutens - this is a brand new love as I only just recently got to sniff it for the first time. I'm a little surprised this didn't get more attention on the board here (or maybe I missed it). This is what I go to Lutens for - unique, complex but no chaotic or lacking sense. I really, really love Jeux de Peau.

    2. Peche Cardinale/Parfums MDCI - still the best peach I've ever sniffed in a perfume

    3. Bois Farine/L'Artisan

    4. POTL Luctor et Emergo

    5. Lea St Barth/Calypso tied with Jour de Fete
    "It's now very common to hear people say "I'm rather offended by that." As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well so fucking what." - Stephen Fry

    D'Orsay La Dandy - brandied spiced fruitcake. Smells like the best Christmas ever.

    I'm not sure I've got 5 primarily gourmands among my wardrobe or faves because I'd rather just eat dessert than wear it -BUT, I sampled CiocoSpesizissimo by Hilde Soliani recently and thought it was really an exceptional chocolate scent.

    L'or Torrente has a creamy sugared coffee note that I really dig- just the way I like coffee
    Ambre Narguille has that apple pie note- makes me crave vanilla ice cream
    Eau de Gimgembre by Roger & Gallet
    Bouche Baie by Nez a Nez- some kind of coconut dark fruit streudel

    Dang I'm surprised I have 5...

    Right where it belongs!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    I'm not a huge gourmand fan, so the only one I like is L'artisan Tea for Two.

    I have samples of Bond No. 9 New Haarlem and Serge Lutens Arabie and neither appeals to me

    I've long grown out of my gourmand phase but still have the odd favourite:

    Arabie - Serge Lutens
    Sweet Oriental Dream - Montale
    Choco Musk - Al-Rehab (a wonderful cheapie)


    Honourable mentions:

    Spiritueuse Double Vanille - Guerlain (some claim it's more of an oriental than a gourmand)
    Lei - Mazzolari
    Conaffetto - Hilde Soliani Profumi
