    Default On the hunt for my next fragrance!

    I want to add a good gourmand to my collection, but not Rochas Man or H.M. I'm looking at either New Haarlem or Play Intense. I hope you guys kinda get a vibe of what I'm looking for. I'll take any suggestions too!

    I'd go with Play Intense as it's one of the options you're considering.

    Hmmm you could try Play Intense. The other two I might add would be Dior Homme Intense and L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
    5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    Alone in a wardrobe they are great but to have both in your arsenal is awesome.

    If you're into gourmands you should, sooner or later, explore Parfumerie Generale. Guillame have done an incredible job with this genre...here are a few "gourmandic" suggestions from his range...

    Aomassai
    Cadjmere
    Cozè
    Felanilla


    ...not among my favorites but still worth cheking out are...

    Praline De Santal
    Musc Maori
    Tonkamande

    My favorites from this genre:

    Musc Ravaguer
    Tobacco Vanillie
    New Haarlem
    Dior Homme Intense

    and although not technically a gourmand, you may want to try Coromandel.

    And Play Intense doesn't hurt my pocket as much as New Haarlem haha.

    I do own DHI! its one of my favorites but I use it verry sparingly being its the vintage DHI! And I have L'Instant de Guerlain, but Extreme is one of those must buys on my list.

    Those notes in Profumi del Forti sound incredible, I haven't heard of it before. Where can I sample it??

    Yeah, I'd just go with play intense. I like new Haarlem more, but the difference doesnt justify the $$$.
