    Yeah, the projection/sillage and longevity leaves a lot to be desired for me as well. Like it, but won't buy again. It's a shame, really.

    eh, not a huge gourmand fan, but i had HM Hanae Mori, EDT and Parfum, at some point and i liked them better. they both had this nice lemony note that balanced all the sweet notes.

    I love gourmands and this is no exception. I have this and wear it mainly around my house. I enjoy the scent but I have never received any compliment from it so I tend to wear it strictly for my own enjoyment and not out in public.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    Rochas Man

    Overall Scent - 3/5 (very good composition, but a bit synthetic. too leafy for a gourmand)
    Versatility - 3.5/5 (good versatility)
    Originality - 4/5
    Projection - 4/5 (perfect. scent cloud but not overbearing)
    Longevity - 4/5 (i get 8+ hours)
    Value - 5/5 (for $30 this is a steal)
    Overall Rating - 3.5/5

    Wore it again today but this time was liberal in my application. I smelt like a lavender shrub for 30mins then nothing. Unless people eat lavender shrubs, in 30mins flat, then this is not a gourmand on me.

    Valentino V for Men reminds more of cotton candy, especially in the opening. Rochas Man gives off a different vibe to me, not cotton candy though.
