    I only date gourmans who pay for dinner.

    I personally only enjoy gourmands when the sweetness is contrasted with some inedible note. My favorite gourmand is Lutens' Fille En Aiguilles, a candied pine.

    I have to put in a vote for ELdO Noel au Balcon. As the name suggests, it's a very Christmasy gourmand: it smells like sweet gingerbread. But what really sets it apart are some very surprising notes that you wouldn't expect in a gourmand, but that are nonetheless integrated perfectly. There's a very strong pepper note in there. And it dries down to a floral musk!

    Also, Elixir des Merveilles deserves a mention.

    I haven't tried many but if L'instant de Guerlain Extreme is considered a gourmand, I'll pick that for now.

    I think Ambre Narguile is best as well.. More of a oriental gourmand though. In terms of GOURMAND gourmand.. A*Men certainly sets the bar high, not many can hang with it.

    Dior Homme Intense and New Haarlem. Is a vanilla scent considered a gourmand? Then I'd include Spiriteuse Double Vanille.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Despite its risky in-your-face impression on other noses, i will gladly wear A*men on a date.

    Second option would be no other than the one and only : Dior Homme intense.

    +1 on Tonka Imperial, glorious gourmand scent.
    Vetiver Tonka is probably my favourite though, shortly followed by Angel, the grand-mother of all new gourmand scents

    Body Kouros YSL, i feel a*men is too strong for a date but maybe because i live in hot tropical place.
