    Could Rahat Loukhoum also be considered a gourmand? Because that would be a nice gourmand that keeps away from the usual vanilla/chocolate combo...

    This is a definite try before you buy. I thought the notes sounded wonderful, but when I tried it, it just smells strange, somewhat discordant.

    My recommendations for gourmand, Un Bois Vanille and Jeux de Peau.

    Jeux de Peau! The Serge Lutens website describes Jeux de Peau as "warm, freshly-baked bread: a remedy for solitude."

    Also, I'd also recommend:

    Mandorlo di Sicilia by Acqua di Parma
    Eau Gourmand Creme Brulee by Laura Mercier
    Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens
    Elixir Charnel Gourmand Coquin by Guerlain
    Tea Collection Sweet Milk by Jo Malone
    Pure Virgin by The Different Company

    Bois 1920 La Vaniglia--my favorite gourmand; just amazing vanilla with a tart cheesecake-type smell at the top. Smoky, resinous base.
    ELdO Noel au Balcon--also very good. gingerbread, pepper
    Angel--nothing to say that hasn't been said a million times
    Lolita Lempicka--ditto
    Ambre Narguile--VERY sweet
    Elixir des Merveilles--candied orange, caramel

    And some regard Body Kouros as a gourmand. (It's close. I just wore it the other day and found it to be on the non-gourmand side of the line.) At any rate, it's quite good, and quite inexpensive.

    I've decided that I'm not a huge gourmand fan, but when I feel the need, I go big and nasty: Givenchy Pi.

    I like A*Men and it's offshoots, but to me they have enough inedible notes like tar, patchouli, etc., that they go beyond gourmand. Pi is sweet, musky fluff, and projects like a mofo. I may only wear it twice a year, but when the mood strikes there's nothing better.

    & LL Au Masculine
    Will add:
    Ghost Man (as much floral as gourmant perhaps, similar to Le Male yes sir it is) my most treasured posession (largely cause it's discontinued...only 220ml to go..... )

    My sweet tooth's thirst is unquenchable, I'm the typical person who can be absolutely exploding after a meal and still want dessert, so no, I still love it even the day after (you know it lingers for ages). The oud makes it addictive to me. But I understand how it could be too much for other people...
    By the way, +2 for Noel Au Balcon, my Christmas candle in fragrance shape. And also +2 for Aziyadé, I love that cola whiff, but I thought it was more of an oriental than a gourmand, even if it's pretty sweet...

    Rochas Man is in your price range and very much a candy sweet gourmand. Also Very Irresistible for Men by Givenchy, though a wee bit more expensive probably

    sometimes things that another thinks of as a gourmand, do not strike me as very edible smelling at all. But I think those two are pretty safe. Both reminiscent of chocolate

    Haven't had explored niche yet, but gourmands are my favourites by far. My bottle of Maurice Roucel's, "Rochas Man" is on the way from all that I have heard:

    Jean Paul Gaultier ~ Le Male
    Thierry Mugler ~ A*Men
    Hanae Mori ~ HM
    Maurice Roucel ~ Rochas Man
    Versace ~ The Dreamer

    I own all of these except "The Dreamer" which I got a small bottle of for Christmas. It was nice enough, and likeable but it just wasn't me. I got too much of a dry, powdery, tarragon smell with it. Not a big fan of tarragon in general. People seemed to like it, but it just wasn't quite bold enough for my blood, I guess. Kind of like a JPG Le Male, without the "Wow, you smell incredibly delicious!" factor, I guess...
