    yohji homme is the best among designers gourmands for me - one of my top 10, and in general i am not into gourmands at all.
    i am not familiar with the niche gourmands.

    I love this post, being a fan of vampire films...yet another incentive for me to explore the highly regarded Montale line.

    Another time mr. LLoyd comes here and makes me want to blind buy more Montales, as if I haven't too many in mind already

    Hahaha, yeah, I should start getting a commission from Montale...
    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.
