    I see LIDGE and DHI as semi gourmands also. I'm a huge fan of gourmands, but it's hard to beat these two at what they do. As far as kings go it has to be A*men. The success of the flankers pretty much seals the deal.

    I think one of the Kings of the Gourmands is Bond No. 9, New Haalem.

    Given the subjective nature of fragrances I'm not sure it's ever "safe" to say any fragrance is clearly the best anything. There have already been multiple fragrances mentioned and I'd personally like to say that I really love H.M. and I'm a little surprised it hadn't been brought up til now.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Surprised no-one has said Spiritueuse Double Vanille yet.

    Pure Malt drydown is a lovely caramel.

    This. There is no "best" or "top" when it comes to fragrances. Only personal preference.

    I absolutely agree. Thanks for simplifying a point I was trying to make in a different post.

    Definitely true, except that I think that A*Men IS a good candidate to be a king here!!!

    To some extent very true!

    Another honorable mentions to me are New Harlem, TV and Pure Havane.

    I think it's safe to say that it's not safe to say it is.

    For the mainstream, easily accessible designer scents, I'd say A*Men.

    Not even close, it is a light sweet chocolate fragrance. Try Bond No9 Andy Warehole, that is sweet or TF TV

    Was just about to say the same thing.

    I almost ate my arm when I tested that out for the first time. No other fragrance makes me want to drink it.
