Thread: 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.

It is good. sweet and musky and masculine. Only $20 on amazon so you youre not taking a great risk blind buying.the bottle is awful but who cares. Then you can move on to the next one you "need"
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
sweet and masculin. cheap similar to amen but weaker and a little fruity
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.
try hanae mori too
I'm a huge fan of gourmands but to get started I'd go with Rochas Man or Hanae Mori...
