    The senior generation will - by personal experience - take a resemblance to oysters, especially on coctail parties in composition with champagne and the competitors fishy fragrances.

    I'd prefer Amouage Gold on my husband. But, it's a matter of individual biochemistry.

    Default Re: Best/Favorite Gourmands?

    I prefer Yohji Homme. Discretion is a great quality for a gourmand, and it just smells great.

    Tea for Two is a close second.

    My favorite is Aomassai by Parfums Generale.

    Default Re: Best/Favorite Gourmands?

    I love tobacco vanille and pure malt among others.

    Default Re: Best/Favorite Gourmands?

    From that list, i only dislike amen, pi and back to black. I`d wear all the other, but my favorite pick would be Spiritueuse Double Vanille, that is a grown-up gourmand to me. For a low calorie gourmand, i`d choose, outside your list, Gaiac from M. Micallef.

    Default Re: Best/Favorite Gourmands?

    I voted for A*Men because it is my favorite with specific gourmand qualities--the chocolate for example. It isn't my favorite on the list, which is probably Tea for Two.

    I don't know what to do about the gourmand category, because, and this might be my hang up alone, I don't think that just any scent with a sweet/spice note counts as a food scent. Tea for Two is tea with some honey I think, but it isn't meant or felt to be a desert reminiscent thing.

    A*Men I like because of its heavy powder and delightful tar quality balancing the chocolate.

    I think Rochas Man is quite nice myself. I have a sample of Lacoste Elegance that is nice too with a bit of spice in the chocolate. I can live without the A*Men.

    Default Re: Best/Favorite Gourmands?

    I chose Back to Black, but I also like L'Occitane's Eaux des Baux. Maybe I should call this "Eaux des Beaux," with my inclinations!

    I like most of them, jewels in my book would be Guerlain's DSV and DiorHI (right now at least).

    My current fav, though not listed, is Gaultier² though Musc Ravageur and A*Men are a close 2nd and 3rd.

    Honestly? How does a line-up of the best male gourmands ever not include one of the most influential and timelessly delicious scents of our time? Jean Paul Gaultier's "Le Male"? I think this notable exclusion, as well as the absence of Versace's, "The Dreamer" seriously harms the "validity" of your survey, although I laud it's existence anyhow. Thank you for throwing something like this out there.

    Default Re: Best/Favorite Gourmands?

    Non of the ones from the list is really stand out above the others in term of quality. For uniqueness, I'll go with Arabie since it's gourmand in a dried fruit way instead of vanilla-y or chocolate-y like others. Musc Ravageur and Hanae Mori are the worst of the bunch since the smell make me sick

    I don't see any gourmand aspect to Le Male or The Dreamer.

    It's seems quite a large % of people seem to mistaken the gourmand genre with just "sweet dessert-y" type notes - when in fact any frag' with mostly any "food-y" type notes, (whether sweet or not), can/could be considered a Gourmand.

    ( Which is probably what "WildThingy" was humorously hinting at .... (??) )


    But, I suppose some of those choices are a touch suspect as "Gourmands" gourmands ....

    Yes indeed, quite correct ! ... Just the mere large dose of vanilla at the base of Le Male is hardly enough to make it a "Gourmand" (as the rest of the majority notes are not "foody" at all, as they'd need to be.) ... And The Dreamer is not a "Gourmand" AT ALL, I'm afraid.

    Although I have much new-found, love/respect for Givenchy Pi, LIDGE is the best on this list (that I have smelled).

    I have still yet to try quite a few of the classics on this list, but New Haarlem has really started impressing more as the weather's gotten colder here.
