Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
Dries van Noten par Frédéric Malle and Tonka Imperiale.
I would say Guerlain Tonka Imperiale if I had to pick one.
Not a huge fan of gourmands but I do rather enjoy Pure Malt.

A*Men Pure Havane by Thierry Mugler
Ambre Narguile. Not sure its classified as gourmand, but its sweet and yummy.
New Haarlem is good too.

Favorite...Chergui. Most worn? Dior Homme Intense. Although, I'm trying Lanvin Avant Garde today for the first time and I think I could see myself wearing this more than DHI to be honest.
A*Men: Mainly wear it in bed. Not into sweets when I'm out and about. Man I love the way it smells. Smelled damn near every niche out there over the last ten years and and none of them can touch it. I don't love the flankers.
I also love Theorema (women's) but I get a little tired of it. Whatever. Easily one of the best masculine gourmands ever made.
Like M7 a lot, too. And I love to smell Chergui. Too much benzoin and amber to wear most times but it sure as hell smells great. If you want to call it a gourmand Santal de Mysore (Lutens) is excellent as well.

From what I own: Rochas Man
From what I tested: Endymion Penhaligons, Pure Havane, DHI among others
(frankly, I could use all of the aforementioned not just in winter, but also as an all-year gourmand)
+1 for Pure Havane.
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
