    Default Les Senteurs Gourmandes?

    Today I stumbled across the fragrance section of the Marks and Spencer website and noticed, in addition to their usual offerings, a few non-house branded lines. Of particular interest was the full range of Laurence Dumont's Les Senteurs Gourmandes fragrances. These are new to me, appear to be very much niche offerings, and at just over £22 for 100ml are also very much in my reach! I'm also a vanilla fan.

    What do people think of this house and do any of the fragrances in this line stand out? Are they unisex or do they tend to lean toward the feminine? Link below. Thanks in advance.

    Vanilla Noire sounds interesting.

    I currently have large bottles of all 15 in my collection - some of which are not even on the Dumont website. I personally like them a lot, especially Figue Sauvage & Vanille Orientale. Very reasonably priced also.


    Figue Sauvage
    Prune Jasmin
    Vanille Abricot
    Vanille Bourbon
    Vanille Chocolat
    Vanille Framboise
    Vanille Frangipanier
    Vanille Monoi
    Vanille Musc Blanc
    Vanille Noire
    Vanille Orientale
    Vanille Pamplemousse
    Vanille Patchouli
    Vanille Tendre Madeleine

    Never seen this line before, looks interesting indeed.

    The Lynn Harris line looks even more interesting.

    I shall visit my local M&S for a sniff session.

    Thanks for posting VD
    Fine fragrance is alive; it breathes, unfolds and unravels with each passing hour....

    Don't mention it, sir!

    Give us a yell if you get your nose to them before I do.

    The EDT counterparts are sold in French supermarkets, which tells a lot about their overall quality.

    I wasn't expecting Kilian or Amouage for £22, but are they at least worth what you'd pay? Part of me imagines you can find far better fragrance in French supermarkets than you can in British ones, and I've picked up some half-decent smells in British ones before now.
