    Default Need mid-range gourmand ideas!

    I love A*Men and recently purchased Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin and love that as well. I'm kind of in the mood to find one more good gourmand that is under $60 and has good longevity. What do you suggest?

    24 Gold by ScentStory, probably a little more than $60 but totally worth it if longevity is what you're after.

    Hey Tony T, this is Don Corleone from the old PE boards. Glad to see you posting man. Where's Rob H? Seen him on Amazon recently doing reviews.

    I agree with all your suggestions, I purchased all of those you listed based off suggestions on the other board and they are all winners, hands down. Ignition was less than 20, 360 white was 14.99, and Legend 12.99 (at discounters). Can't go wrong with those. Rochas is also another excellent suggestion, also maybe Hanae Mori HM and Perry Ellis 360 Black.

    For less than $60 for a 1.7, many gourmands can be had, many much cheaper than that.

    Although it doesn't give me that vibe, some say here that Hanae Mori's EDT is kinda gourmandish. And its inexpensive.

    Co-sign

    Rochas Man and Eau des Baux suggestions. Rochas Man is definitely more gourmand than Eau des Baux.

    See if you can spend a bit more and get LIDGE. It oozes class and is extremely potent, so you're guaranteed your money's worth.

    1 Million, Black Soul, Eau de Baux, Perry Ellis 360 Black, CK One Shock, Black XS, Spicebomb. I know these aren't all technically gourmands, but they are all oriental type scents in the same field you're asking about, and I enjoy them all.

    Alright thank you all for the suggestions, first purchase is Eau de Baux which I have seen come up dozens of times and think would be a great addition and next in line will likely be Rocas Man. Thank you!
