    Subscribing to this thread.

    I agree with Rochas man, if you like the chocolate coffee. Pure Malt is nice too, so is A*Men.

    My favorite is Le Male.

    What gourmand note is in DHI?

    Hermes Ambre Narguile. I find I don't reach for gourmands much at all these days, but it's pretty scrumptious nevertheless.

    Hmmm, unsure whether unisex or just for the ladies. Then again I've not worried about that distinction for quite some time.

    New Haarlem. Rochas Man is 70% gourmand, 30% woody/floral. New Haarlem is like 95% gourmand.

    Try the 'Taste of Fragrance' flanker to A*Men for a dose of chilli chocolate and coffee - I also really enjoy Givenchy Pi with it's sweet vanillic almond accord thanks to the benzoin crystals.

    And since you mentioned Yohji Homme, I'd probably have to add Xerjoff's Uden to my list (as it reminds me of it a bit).

    Am I the only one to find DHI not "edible" enough to be consider a gourmand? The lipstick would ruin my desert of vanilla and cocoa!

    As for the gourmand:

    I love NY for All - marrom glace popcorn
    New Haarlem - mapple syrup coffee
    HM - Chocolate fruity desert
    24 Gold - Raspberry creme brulee
    Play Intense - Oranges tonka coffee

    For all you niche-heads out there, check out Profumum Roma. They've got a bunch of gourmand fragrances with atomic projection and longevity. My two personal favorites: Dulcis In Fundo and Vanitas!
    They're pretty damn expensive tho. But as with all Profumum Roma fragrances, a little goes a looooong way
    http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/detail.asp?itemid=33913
    http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/secti...m/Vanitas.html

    Another great gourmand would be Xerjoff's Lira from their Casamorati 1888 line.

    As far as DHI goes, I wouldn't really classify it as a gourmand. It has some gourmand qualities to it (vanilla & cacao) but that's it. It's not completely a gourmand due to the iris, cedar and vetiver notes. Beautiful fragrance nevertheless

    New Haarlem is a very nice comfort scent, which I enjoyed wearing at home on those lazy days. You will smell like maple syrup pancakes. Try it and decide for yourself!

    I'm glad to have it in my collection but the longevity is a bit on the poor side IMO.

    I just got a sample of Lubin Korrigan and I must say, it might be replacing Pure Malt as my favorite boozy gourmand. Cognac, caramel and a touch of musk on a subtle agar base...it's smooth like butter.
