Parfumerie Générale has done quite a lot of good work in the gourmand vein, including Aomassaï, Praline de Santal, Felanilla, Cadjmere, and Coze. Serge Lutens offers Rahät Loukoum, Louve, and 5 O'Clock au Gingèmbre; L'Artisan Parfumeur makes Méchant Loup and Safran Troublant; and Ginestet's line includes a beguiling gourmand called Botrytis.
Don't forget the Frapin line: 1270 and 1697.
ELDO's Noel au Balcon
Lutens: jeux de peu, Un Bois Vanilla
... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.

Thank you very much everyone, Where I can buy samples of Tonka Imperial and Ambre Narguille cheaper than The perfumed court?
the Frapin 1270 have told me that has very short duration and little Sillage, is it true?

Hey guys I'm going to ask samples of Parfumerie Generale 3, I like much the gourmands.
What are the first 3 gourmands of the house PG?
y thought COZE ,AOMASSAI ,fELANILLA.
Adding Un Crime Exotique from Parfumerie Generale and Lann Ael from Lostmarc'h to the list.
Serge Lutens Chergui. A very light gourmand, so syrup-sweet, but lightly sweet.

Niche Gourmand List in no order
1. Tonka Imperial - a great gourmand that has more versatility than others. I reach for this when I am going to be in the office.
2. SDV - A great hanging out/lounging around/relaxed date scent with AMAZING longevity. I do not like the initial blast of this but it smells amazing after 10-15 mins. I would not wear this to business/professional settings.
3. Amber Narguile - This is an excellently blended gourmand. I love the apple/cinnamon note. I dont get much tobacco out of this. I would wear this for a more upscale date to the office, or an upper class event.
4. Tobacco Vanille - WOW on the projection and longevity. If I'm going to wear this, i get ready early to spray myself to get to the drydown quicker. A lot of companies make an intense version, but I would love if tom ford made a Less Intense version of this. TV is the clubbing/bar hopping gourmand for cool weather. I would also wear this as a close quarters combat frag. I live in Miami and unfortunately can not wear this when its too humid and hot.
5. New Harlem - a good gourmand that I only go to for a relaxed lounging around environment. for me SDV replaced this, although they do not smell the same. When I'm in the mood for coffee/syrup i go for this. Like with TV i think that NH just doesnt do as well in a miami climate.
6. Rochas Man - An excellent purchase and I recommend it to anyone looking into gourmands. it has lots of versatility. Id wear this to a bar/club and various dates. It does well out and about with its great projection and longevity and its smooth enough for close quarters. This might be my most complimented fragrance of all time. Personally, my nose has grown out of this. I still spray it time to time but less frequently.

Jeux de Peau
Amber Narguile, By Kilian's Back to Black, Guerlain's SDV, Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau/Arabie, and Ginestet Botrytis are some of my favorites.
My favorite niche gourmand right now is Arquiste Anima Dulcis. Chilli peppers and chocolate without too much sweetness. Trust me - it's good!

I'd say it's near to borderline of being gourmand, but nevertheless - L'Artisan Eau du Navigateur with it's coffee and rum.
