    Default May buy my first gourmand

    Thinking of getting Animale Animale. I did read reviews on it but if you haven't left a review already, I'd like your input.

    - How is longevity and projection?


    - Does it smell more synthetic or natural? (I smelled a chemical assault with A-Men)


    - Is it super sweet?


    - Is it masculine?


    - Are gourmands (specifically this one) something you can wear frequently or are they so intensely flavorful that you need to space out your wearings of them.


    - What are the dominant notes you perceive?



    Thanks in advance.

    On me average.

    - Does it smell more synthetic or natural? (I smelled a chemical assault with A-Men)

    To me synthetic

    - Is it super sweet?

    No
    - Is it masculine?


    IMO yes
    Animale Animale is not bad but there are better gourmands out there IMO.

    I like gourmands, but I find them easier to wear in the cold, and not with terrible frequency, but that's just a personal preference.

    I'd say it's one of the more masculine gourmands. Projection is moderate. It's sweet but I wouldn't call it "super sweet" (Blue Sugar is super sweet to me).

    Though I would say there are better gourmands out there, even in this price range. Hanae Mori (might be a bit feminine), Body Kouros, Rochas Man....

    Animale Animale is a good gourmand to test the waters. It's not overly sweet or cloying. Rochas Man would be another good one to cut your teeth on and takes it a step further with more recognizable gourmand notes.

    I'm a huge fan of gourmands but to get started I'd go with Rochas Man or Hanae Mori...
