Thread: Sweet gourmand

    Default Sweet gourmand

    Looking to add a sweet fragrance to my collection. I think I'm leaning towards rochas man, and Lolita lempicka's au masculine. Any suggestions based off these two. Anything bad about these? Which one is better?

    rochas man is not a pure gourmand. it has some woody notes and some leafy notes in it too. and it has this repulsive synthetic lavendar note.

    it's alright, but new haarlem is 10 times better. worth the price.

    i hear au masculin is like body kouros. and i'd prefer body kouros over rochas man EASILY

    What about

    Maison des Reves - 'Gourmandise' - Eau de Parfum

    Its lovely.
    ...a much requested sample of the evening by a group of over excited perfume lovers who likened it to a 'sexy dungeon with a steak house on the top'. Was I one of that group? Well, yes, and it was my first Perfume Lovers Meetup. What a start.

    Both of your choices are ones I enjoy. I'd pick the LLaM over RM if I had to pick just one, or choose one first.

    LLAM would be my choice.

    Since we're on the subject of Maurice Roucel (Rochas Man, New Haarlem), why not try Musc Ravageur? It's a form of heaven on earth...
