    Default I want to smell like food! Suggestions?

    Here is the list of ones I want to sample so far:
    -Pure Malt
    -Double Vanille
    -Tobacco Vanille

    Two of those I can't afford bottles of though so I was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions for scents that smell like vanilla and are warm and sweet.
    Selling Pure Malt? Message me!

    Bond 9 New Harlem - maple syrup ..has sort of a cult gourmand following, i don't really care for it though.

    Cafe Rose/Espresso Royale - coffee

    Tonka Imperiale - almond

    Guerlain's SDV - creamy vanilla w/ boozy accords

    Ambre Narguile - apple pie

    Kokorico By Night - budget friendly

    Perhaps also Rochas Man (less vanilla and more mocha-caramel-raspberry suggestions in this one, yet also vanillic enough to be noticeably gourmand), Eau des Baux (even compared quite often to Tobacco Vanille in BN reviews), Yves Rocher Vanille Noir - for quite inexpensive yet solidly good quality choices.

    I was going through my wardrobe to find all the fragrance I have that are gourmand or remind me of food, and provide a short description of them.. but there are just too many, and that's just from my collection. There are so many great fragrances out there that smell like foods, and tons of inexpensive ones too. You don't need to go for the ones that cost 300 a bottle, just because they have some hype, cause odds are, there's an alternative for them at a fraction of the price.. just do your research.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    I second New Haarlem.

    I'd skip even sampling Tobacco Vanille, personally. Doesn't smell edible.

    The entire Comptoir Sud Pacifique line is worth looking into
    Bogart pour Homme - cherry vanilla cordial, highly recommend this
    Hanae Mori HM - lemon candy and cookie dough
    Nuit d'Issey - kind of smells like eggnog spices with a hint of actual eggnog too
    Thallium - fruits and powdery amber/vanilla
    Le Male - on some days this gives me a minty vanilla milkshake vibe
    Joop! Homme Wild - yet to smell this one but it's supposed to smell like sweetened flavored rum
    Al-Rehab Soft - lemon cake
    Al-Rehab Choco musk - chocolate and vanilla

    I see your wardrobe already contains CK Shock and Boss Bottled, nice... I won't mention A*Men because I assume if you know of Pure Malt, you already know of it.

    If you want affordable, gourmand suggestions, you should try Raghba, Michael Jordan Legend, Rochas Man, Al Rehab Choco Musk, Cologne of the Missions and Eau Des Baux. There are dozens more out there as well.

    +1 Rochas Man

    Also some to consider:
    Animale Animale
    A*Men
    Agua Verde
    Jacomo de Jacomo Rouge
    Lolita Lempicka au Masculin

    Also check out Demeter fragrance library stuff. They have a tonnnnn of stuff that smell like foods. A lot of people complain about their fragrances longevity, but the one that I own from their house Cannabis Flower lasts 24+ hours on my skin. I don't recommend this though, unless you wanna smell like strawberries and marijuana.

    I forgot 24 Gold, but I guess that'd be close to being out of your price range anyway.
    Like another user said Raghba might be a good substitute for that one.

    Dior homme intense has a really good cacao note that resembles food, especially in the dry down. Amen to me smells like graham crackers and chocolate. I dont honestly consider tobacco vanille a gourmand. IMHO its more like a fine cigar shop where you have numerous flavored tobaccos in single humidor.

    Interesting. The amber and iris makeup accord totally prevents me from smelling Dior Homme as edible.
    Funny how noses differ.

    Oh ya. Another very under the radar foody smelling gourmand. Steel Sugar by Aquolina. I just got this recently, and to me it's a bit redundant.. however it smells like gingerbread/coconut cookies. I highly recommend this for you, and very inexpensive.

    Thanks everyone. I will likely be sampling Rochas Man first, as that was suggested most and inexpensive.

    Hanae Mori HiM and Yatagan smell both like soup to me - two different soups, but still soup.
